HP G70 laptop screen turns on and off on power up out of hibernation

The simplest solution to this is to simply not hibernate. Try shutting down or sleeping. If this still does not work, try updating all of your drivers or reinstalling windows.

External monitor only works if I start windows vista in safe mode

First after you boot it up normally (not Safe Mode) can you move the mouse far to the left or to the right do you see the mouse. If you do see the mouse pointer you are running dual monitor mode and the laptop screen is set as the primary monitor. You have to run it in Save Mode and set the external monitor as the primary monitor. Hit the Start button then select Help+Support and in the search box enter "dual monitors". Read how to set up the primary monitor.

Second maybe you need to activate the external monitor. When laptops boot normally (not Safe Mode again) with a external monitor connected you have to hit the Fn (function) key (probably blue near Alt key) and some other number key (it probably has a blue monitor symbol on it) I'm not sure which one. This key sequence is a toggle sequence. In other words when you boot a laptop it goes directly to the laptop screen then the first time you do a Fn + number key combination it will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen the next time you push Fn+number key it will turn on both monitors (external and laptop screen) the third time it will turn on only the laptop screen and so forth.

When you wake the computer up from sleep, eventually some of the windows files become corrupted. I recommend that a proper shut down be done when not in use. Now to try and address your problem, do a system restore and take it back in time before this started, if successful should resolve your issues.

Spilled soda in laptop,now screen has no light, can boot up and see dim image

That can be a hard one. It depends on where you spilled it on the laptop. You can also just wait and leave it on. Then turn it on and off a few times. Sometimes it will just start working again with no problems. The next day it might be fine. But if not, take it to an expert because you don't really know until you look under the hood so to speak.

My laptop works fine from time to time but then i get some line colored vertical on ym screen and the mouse freeze after i reinstall the windows its good for a few days thne start again

It sounds like you have a persistent virus, turn off your restore feature, run a full scan with a decent anti-virus software and anti-spy-ware and do this in safe mode. Then do a complete re-install of your system, if you have another hard drive handy I would opt to do that first that way it will prove there are no other issues with your laptop.

Cant get windowes to start

Hi ,

I see that ur computer has a boot issue i guess you mean to say that you are not getting to the screen where you ca see the icons and the start button.So to correct this issue please follow the steps that i am mentioning.
Disconnect all the external devices like usb devices,printer etc.Then turn the computer off and when you turn it on as soon as you release the power button after releasing it start tapping the F8 key until you get a black screen that says safe mode .Use the arrow keys on the keyboard and then hit enter,wait till it takes you to the log on screen so once you are there select administrator and then hit the enter key.This should take you to the desktop and if it does then you need to restore the computer to an earlier time when you think that the computer was working fine .Go to start?all programs ?accessories?system tools and then system restore.The page takes time to load up and once it comes up select resotre my computer to an earlier time and then click next?select an appropriate date when you think that the computer was working fine and the date thatyou are selecting needs to be in bold.Once you have selected the date click on next next to exit from the wozard and then the computer will restore to the date that you have selected the computer will restart and then would take you to the normal screen .
Hope this resolves the issue ...all the best

Most likely a Windows software problem. Could be virus caused. Try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options.Use the arrow key to select "boot using last known good configuration". If that works, you're done. If not, try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options. This time select "boot in safe mode". The laptop screen will look different but will still allow you to run your laptop. Click on the "Start" button, then "Help and Support" and then "Undo changes to your system using system restore". Click on "Restore" and then select a date shown in BOLD when your laptop was running fine. Have the laptop restore to that date. After restarting, you should have full functionality. If this doesn't work, you may have a failing harddrive. Try reinstalling Windows. If it fails during loading, your harddrive is most like failing and should be replaced. If reloading solves the problem, you had corrupt software probably caused by a virus attack.
