Question about Computers & Internet
When it turns on the screen is purple ? i cant get anything on the screen
Press f8 when you start your computer and choose to boot into safe mode with gui. If this boot is successful, then the issue is a software issue (OS corrupted) and you can either try a windows repair using your CD, or try a fresh installation. If the issue persists, then you have a hardware issue. If you are getting this error before anything shows up (e.g. press fxx (some function key) for boot menu and/or press fxx to enter bios or some message regarding boot loader), it could be a motherboard issue. If it happens after these messages, this is most probably a hard drive issue. In case of a hardware issue, visit your nearest computer repair shop and the guy should be able to fix it for you.
In case it turns out to be a software issue, you can save your data by booting using a linux live usb (you can easily find out about this by searching a bit over the internet).
In case, this is a motherboard issue, you can save your data by attaching your hard disk to another computer as an external drive (the repair shop guy will know hot to do this).
In case, this is a hard drive issue, it is not possible to save your data any more using the conventional techniques and unless the data is really really really important (national security important) the effort it takes is not worth it.

I had the same problem. I fixed it by taking the front panel above the keyboard off (requires removing 9 or 10 screws from the bottom side), then I made sure the LCD and power cables were plugged in firmly, and finally I did a power reset just for fun. I did this early yesterday evening, and so far it's seemed to work.

If you just bought it, take it back for a replacement now before you load a lot of programs and data, only to have it completely fail.
You bought a new computer and that's not what new computers are supposed to do. Ask them for a new one that works.
