Laptop won't startup!!

While using the PC lately after some time the screen would go all grey and I'd have to restart in order to get it to work again. After doing that around 3 times it just didn't start up again at all. The fan and everything work but the screen doesn't show anything at all. What's wrong?

Snow screen

This sounds like a hardware failure, which means you need to take it to the Apple shop. First, you may however try one more thing: Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaniously for 10+ seconds, this will cause a reset. If this works, try and restart the iPad and give it a few minutes to finish loading. If it will not restart, you could try to connect it to iTunes in your computer and restore it, replacing the system.
Good luck! :)

ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot

Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
Here's what worked for me:
1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

Sir i had bought sony vaio laptop which showing text; boot mgr missing and press ctrl alt del to restart, pls give me a solution

I assume you are running vista because bootmgr.exe is used to run vista from startup. "bootmgr" is short for boot manager, and without this, your computer simply doesnt know how to start vista from your hard drive.

To fix it is quite simple. First of all go into your BIOS menu (usually press F2 or DEL when prompted when you turn on your pc). Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to be your primary boot device. This way you can run your setup disk in the next step.

Insert your Vista install disk and restart your system. Press any key when prompted to begin running the dvd. Wait for it to give you a list of choices. This may take a while as it often stays a blank screen for some time. Choose "repair", and the setup will auto detect your operating system. It will also fix your bootmgr.exe at this point. If it does not, you can go on to the next screen and choose "startup repair".

Dell Latitude XT2 fails to start up.

I know this is an old post, but the LED code for CAPS lock on, F4 flashing, F5 on means memory issue. I had this issue, reseated the memory, and the issue was resolved.

Dissplay not working

I had the same problem on one that I bought, that was used. You have to take out all of the little grey plugs and remove the screws underneath them. My cables were all fine. I had a connection inside the monitor area, near the top. There is a ribbon cable with a flat, wide plug on it. I had to uncompress the sides of the plug & jack. It cured the problem. About 4 months after I had it working, I found out the previous owner used to pick it up by the screen.
