There seems to be some corruption on the hard drive. You need to boot up the laptop from the Windows installation cd. Once "Setup" has started, you need to look for the option "Recovery Console". Once loaded you may get asked which installation you want to log onto. Type in 1 and press Enter. Then type the following: CHKDSK /P and press Enter. This will run a checkdisk and more than likely report that it has fixed some errors on the drive. Now type EXIT and press enter. The system should now reboot, remember to remove the Windows installation cd. If this fails, you may have to take the laptop to an authorised dealer.

Can't find my 3 physical drives and shown as combined free space


Try in computer management righ clicking and mark as active if it wants you to format well no to that. I cant understand how this would happen either but its your best bet. If that doesnt work get the hard drive out and plug it into a desktop PC as a second drive, it may just appear if not youre looking at data recovery software. Good luck from Scott

Creative Zen M:vision - can't turn on/off, permanent blue light


Well, i didn't charge mine over night, was listening to it in the evening while doing some chores and all of a sudden it stopped playing, Blank screen and permanent Blue light. I tried to turn if off but it didn't respond so i left it. In the morning, it went off itself (guess the battery was low). So i connected to the computer and inserted the ZEN CD. As i was exploring the CD looking for a solution, then all of a sudden the screen came up with a note "Rebuilding..." after 5 secs it came on. With all my files intact! I hope this wud be helpful, You could give it a shot, after all there's nothing to loose!

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

No icons..nothing!?!


Try resetting the desktop. Right click on the desktop, click properties, then open the desktop tab. Change the desktop picture and see if that works. If it doesn't try a system restore. You will be able to access the start menu by pressing the windows key. If these don't work you'll need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
