Re: My easy note laptop will not start up!

This can happen if some newly installed hardware behaves unexpectedly or one of ur existing has developed a problem.To confirm just run system restore.Follwo the following procedure: Start->Run type "msconfig" then click on launch system restore and select a restore point.If this fixes the problem fine. Other wise download "driverscan"(search it in google)and run it.It will show you if there is any compatibility issues or problems.

I want to install windows xp on dell inspiron mini 1018 but i am not able to install.some blue screen comes.please help

turn off your antivirus before you try to revert back to xp. your system antivirus might see this as an attack on your windows 7,thus it won't allow you to install a different system.

Have a Dell Studio. When I power up the Dell Logo appears with loading bar below that. The bar stops about 2/3 of the way, it freezes up and starts beeping. Nothing I've tried works.

this is often related to a possible motherboard problem. Try these steps: turn it off, remove the battery, and AC adapter, then press and hold the power button for about 5 to 10 seconds. Once done, reconnect at least the adapter , turn on the laptop and as soon as the Dell logo shows up, tap F2 a few times to enter System Setup (BIOS screen). From there, go to the Maintenance category, and select Load Defaults, press Enter. Press ESC, then select Save/Exit, restart the computer and see how it goes.

Starting problem

Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

Won't load the operating system

try booting into safe mode, and uninstall the program

to do this: right before the windows xp logo shows, rapidly hit F8 on the keyboard, you should get a screen that shows the advanced startup options, after you see this, use the arrow keys to select 'Safe Mode' and hit enter, the computer should boot successfully and you can uninstall the program.

NOTE: if you hit F8 too late, perform a cold-reboot (hold down the power button until the computer is off and then turn back on) and try again

Acer note book would just turn off without any warning with power

it could be a problem with the windows operating system... you can try going to safe mode first by continuously pressing F8 before windows starts to load upon turning on your laptop. if it works then you can use the windows operating system disc to repair the problem and if it doesn't work then you might need to reformat and reinstall the OS...

Bad day, huh? Here area couple of quick and easy things to try that may fix your problem. Then again, they may not,but it never hurts to try!

1) Take out your laptop battery.
2) Remove your AC power cord, that's the wall power, removeit.
3) Now hold down your poser button for at least 30 seconds.

That will drain any static electricity that has builtup on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of ablack screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power andhit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up. Reinsertyour battery.

If that doesn't resolve the situation try step 2

Step 2 Bad memory Your memory (RAM) may need to be removed, andthen put back in (reseated). The videoshares the system's memory, and will not function if there is a problem.
1) Reseatmodule(s).
2) Swapmodule, preferably with known good.

Hope this helps the situation and makes your day go better!
