You can try 2 solutions as mentioned below.

  1. Check in case NUM Lock or CAPS Lock is on, if ON turn it off and try again.
  2. Second, Restart the system and keep tapping F8, You will get a screen for Advance Boot Option. Select Safe mode with networking or Safe mode. Try login in that mode. If logged in successfully, try creating a new account and delete this account as the account has got some problem. Or you can do a system restore.

I have g51j that doesnt start since I shut down properly yesterday

hello nooraniantwe, so sorry i didnt really understand the question when you said it didnt start, is it the laptop itself or the operating operating system? if its the laptop try removing the battery for a while and fix it back by dojn g so you are resetting the board in a way, if the os refuses to load to desktop, as soon as the system starts tap f8 then enter safe mode if it takes you to desktop try restoring the system back to an earler time to see what happens. pls keep me informed. thanks

Computer monitor out of range is being flashed on screen

Monitor is not recognizing the resolution settings that are currently set on the computer.
It is probably sett too high.
You will have to lower the computer resolution.
If it is a laptop, you should be able to do this using the laptops screen.
If it is a desktop computer, you either have to use a different screen to reset the resolution.
Sometimes restarting the computer while the screen is on will reset the video.
If that doesn't work, try starting the computer in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while it is being started. This will keep the resolution low enough to see it on the monitor and you can adjust the resolution there in the display properties

Right off the bat when I power up my HP Intel Pentum 4 3.2 mhz processor (with Hyper Threading and XP OS SP3 and the LCD monitor and an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 with up to 128MB shared...

Reboot the machine and when you see the HP flash screen, tap the key that gets you into the setup or BIOS screen. This could be F2 or the escape key, just watch for it. Once you get into the BIOS pages, go to the last page and look for the text "Reset Default Settings" or something to that effect. Click to reset defaults and answer yes if it asks if you are sure, then tap on the F10 key and click yes to exit and reboot. Restart Windows normally.....if there is still a problem, reboot and tap the F8 key when you see the HP screen. Choose "Safe Mode with Networking", this will load safe mode and minimal settings and drivers but will give you internet access to get help for resetting safe mode through the control panel.
