No display on my sony vaio NS20.

>Switch to a regular desktop monitor and see if you can get display. Just plug it in to the VGA port. You may have to press a certain key to get it to switch, see the manual. If you get display, your screen is dead.
>Try boot into Safe Mode. If you get display you have a file/program corruption preventing clean boot.
>Take it to a local, reputable computer shop for inspection. Avoid big box stores like the plague, all they want to do is sell you a new computer no matter what is wrong with it.

Blank display

Could be hard drive crash , could be graphics chip failure , could be power supply failure............................

too vague description :

1. does screen show ANYTHING during boot attempt ?
2. can you hear hard drive or heatsink fan spin on boot ?
3. do you get keyboard LED's to light up on boot ?

If NO on 1,2,3, then power supply is toast . get new one........
If No , Yes , Yes , then graphics chip dead . Try external VGA->VGA output to other monitor , see if that works.
If Yes , Yes , Yes , but not booting then hard drive is toast , try replacing it and re-install windows .

Acer veriton M460 does not boot to desktop.It boots to windows xp and suddenly brings a flash of yellow light then it stops displaying anything on the screen but d syystem remains on without displaying...

There are a couple of quick fixes you can do.

First, boot into Safe Mode (Repeatedly tap the F8 key while the system is booting, before the windows logo appears) A Menu will pop up, press Boot Into Safe Mode. From there you can try a System Restore to a known good date.

System Restore - Click Start -> Control Panel -> On the top right, type "System Restore" without the quotes. Click on "Restore system files and settings from a restore point". You can choose the recommended restore or a specific date.

The other option is to boot into "Last Known Good Configuration". To do this, use the F8 trick again while booting, but instead of Safe Mode choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

Please note that either of these run a risk of some data being lost from the time the restore point was made. You "shouldn't" lose anything but just want to make you aware.

If this helps, please give a positive rating.

Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server won't boot.

> black screen & flashing cursor ...

Damaged boot-record on the disk-drive???

Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.

> no beep codes

When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?

Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".

> anyone?

Replace the monitor?

Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.

Tried everthing just cant get this thing to boot up

Sounds like you may need your screen replaced.

Upon turning on your laptop,
Keep pressing F8, until you hear a beep. This will give you the option to boot to safe mode. When you hear a beep, and NOTHING comes on your screen within 20 seconds, you need to have your LCD screen replaced.

Typically if its a hardware problem such as RAM, you'll hear 2 beeps or a POST message will display on your screen, letting you know that a certain piece of hardware failed.

Ive seen problems occur when people change a setting such as :
Right click on your desktop --> Properties --> Settings --> Advanced Button

And changing your DPI. This can cause your screen to go out (Not display anything). If its up to high chances are your LCD screen can not handle it. If you boot to safe mode, then you can fix this. Again if you cant boot to safe mode, then you have a mad LCD.

Give this a try and let me know what happens.

Oh one more things.

One thing i have also seen, more than once, and till this day i can not explain it, but a USB device plugged in. Remove ANY USB device plugged to your computer. Printer, FLASH Drive, Mouse, etc. Then turn on your computer.

If you have a floppy drive, remove the floppy.
If you have a CD/DVD in your tray, turn the computer on to take it out.

Changing a file attribute on Symbol 6846

You will need to extract the files from the terminal to be able to edit them normally and then rebuild the hex file to reload on to it.

There are two commands that you may want to try on the terminal but i doubt you will be able to modify the file.

flshctl /w will enable you to write on the flash.
flshctl /ro will disable the write option.
