Hi vflood, This is usually due to a heat issue, possibly from accumulated dust inside the machine. Take the side off and, using canned air available in most electronics departments, blow the dust off of the cpu, heatsink, and fans as well as the ventilation areas. Then blow the rest of the dust out as well.

Also, if you have altered your operating system power settings recently, you may want to revert them to default.

Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate/vote!

My screen keeps going black, how do I correct it?


I'm guessing your power options are set very low. One minute is the least you can set, but it may seem less. Try going to Control panel, Power Options and click on "Change when the computer sleeps" and select a time of several minutes for "Turn Off The Display" and see if that helps.

Good luck.

I was wiping the hard drive when the laptop


Please come back to us with the exact error if you get any.

However, how you are performing recovery. Using recovery manager or recovery discs?

If you are using recovery manager, please perform hard drive self test and check with the result.

Hard drive self test steps:

1. Turn Off the notebook.
2. Turn ON the notebook and keep tapping F10 key
3. Once you are in BIOS, navigate to tools/diagnostics tab with the help of left and right arrow key.
4. You will find Primary HDD self test or HDD self test.
5. With the help of up and down arrow key select the respective test and hit enter.
6. Short test will take only 4-5 minutes. However, long test may take 40-60 minutes.


If the hard drive is fine, try to perform recovery using recovery discs....

If still the problem exists try with different discs.

If the hard drive fails replace the hard drive.

Hope this will work for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

The Startup repair program is running and wont stop


A complete scan can take several hours to complete. If you want to shut it all down unplug it and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for at least 10 minutes, and until it cools down.

Can't Turn Computer On


I understand that your Notebook is not turning on.

That's unfortunate.

However, try to perform the following steps.

= Power Drain =

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the issue persists, I am afraid that you need to repair your Notebook.

Thanks
