Re: computer

Check that the hard drive connectors have not become loose on the board or the drive. Also check you havent lost a little black jumper off the back of the drive.

The problem was most likely a heat problem. So, that problem is still there. Switch it off and remove the cables. Then, take off the side panel and look at all the dust inside. Using a very soft 1 inch paint brush, gently loosen the dust on the fans and around the insides. (You could use a can of air from a computer shop to do the same job, this will stop you causing any damage to the delicate parts on the motherboard.) Then re-assemble the case and connect the cables turn it on and see what happens.

Hp pavilion dv7-4165dx black screen

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.

Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.

Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.

Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.

Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.

Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.

Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.

Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.

Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

Hope this helps

Keep getting black screen with error message no bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key ... computer will start in safe mode if i'm quick enough with the f1 key ... HELP

Hello good day, just remove your SATA cable from your hard disk if your using a SATA type HARD DISK, change with a new one, or try to pull it back and put it back tightly. It's just a loss contact situation.That's why you are receiving that message.

My computer is beeping when I turn it on. It beeps two long and then two short followed by two more long. What could be my problem?

You need to check the RAM[s] on your desktop.Open the top cover and inside on the motherboard are some long [maybe 2 or more] slots with something like flat chips attached.Remove them by pressing the two holders on both ends down.Wipe the slots off dust and re-insert the RAM[s] making sure they properly and firmly sit on the slots.Also check the hard disks power supply and make sure its properly fixed.Probably disconnect the hard disks power supply and reconnect again.Put the cover back and start the machine.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Hp pavilion a1210n disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. how do you boot in save mode

Turn your computer off, turn it back on, as soon as you do that, start pressing F8 repeatedly until you get to a screen where you can access safe mode. If it's saying disk boot failure, you most likely have a dying/dead hard drive.

Everything has been working okay on this compaq until this morning. Upon powering up a Red and White HP screen pops up that turns into a black screen which reads quite simply: "Disk Boot...

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

Went on vacation wife turn off computer off by computer shut-down. came back turn on computer ,ligths up ,but screen stays black and wont reboot.

ok this is just an educated guess... try this!!!

1. Find your windows recovery disc! not the windows installation disc. however you can use the installation disc to do a system repair...
2. turn on computer and insert the recovery disc/windows installation disc.
3. press depending on the computer F-10 or F-2 to enter the computer bios screen
4. Change boot options to boot from cd-rom...
5. Follow onscreen instructions :)

thats only applicable if you are able to access the Setup (bios screen) if not then i would suggest changing the jumper inside the computer.... and also check your ram slots to make sure there aint no looseness or dust. if there is looseness then just reseat them... if there is dust make sure your not wearing rubber soled shoes and remove the ram cards and use a pencil eraser to clean the gold teeth on the ram cards and then reinsert them into the computer... there are multiple reasons why your computer is doing this and this is just an educated guess so give it a try... you cant damage anything :)

How do you Reboot a computer back to factory setting

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Factory Settings CD
    How To Use the Restore Factory Setting CD
  1. Step 1 Make sure to transfer all of the files you want to keep to a USB memory stick or burn to a CD.
  2. Step 2 Put the "Restore Factory Setting CD" into the CD drive. This CD was packaged with your computer.
  3. Step 3 Confirm you want to restore the factory settings. The computer will begin restoring all settings. Don't disturb your computer, as this process can take several hours. .
  4. Step 4 Reboot the computer to complete the process.
  5. How to Reboot Using the Computer Start-Up
  6. Step 1 Turn on your computer. Right away there will be a black screen. You can restore factory settings without a CD, too. This will reset your BIOS.
  7. Step 2 Press "F1" when the black screen appears to enter the setup configuration mode. You will be presented with a menu.
  8. Step 3 Select "Restore Factory Defaults." That's it. Your computer will do all the work for you. Like the CD, this process may take several hours.
