I have a HP laptop. It crashed the other day,had to use disks to start all software working again. Now my toggle isn't working. The light won't even come on when I push the button. Can anyone help me. Seems like this happened one other time when I had to have my PC fixed, but can't remember what to do.

    Go into your BIOS, I believe its F10 to get in there, choose the cd drive as your first boot device and you should be able to install your operating system that way.

Depends on a few things.
One is trying to save what you have.
Two is trying to either repair or replace the software that you have. Step one might be to get or have someone make a live linux cd or other type of bootable cd to get your info off. You can use a network to copy much of it off to another machine that has a shared folder. Step two is not that easy. Call Dell and see if they can ship you a disk that can either restore it to OEM state or a disk that can be used to recover the system. If no to either then you need to consider -repairing the current OS, using some type of bootable cd that has repair tools. It may be possible to use a common XP cd to repair. Be warned that you can loose the OEM data if you are not sure how to use a repair. -using a Barts' PE based cd to create the recover disk. -Find someone with the correct cd's and change the numbers to fit your sticker.

I have a problem with my sony vaio!it seems to crush when i move the charger!its not shutting down but the scen is off and then i have to remove the charger so it shuts down and turn it on again!plus it...


It sounds like a loose connection in the charger cord or the AC jack. If the laptop is pulled by the cord it could have loosened/damaged the AC jack. If you remove the battery and only use the AC cord does the problem change? if you only use the battery and no AC cord does that change the problem? When Power is removed, without a proper shut down, the machine sees it as a crash therefore the disk check and black screen with boot options.

HP laptops are well known for motherboard issues, and will usually involve a replacement board, at this point have it checked before a decision is made.

NEW MacBookPro crashes! I just bought a new macbookPro and it has crashed on three different programs; won't download the manual from online (get the beach ball) and makes a sound when power-ing u


The two "whirring" noises that you hear on power up is normal. The beauty of having a new macbook is you can reinstall the software very easily and a fresh install should fix your problem. Put the disk that came with the machine into the disk drive and turn the computer off. Turn it back on and press and HOLD the "alt" button until you are given the option of booting from your hard drive or your disk. Choose the disk and when it boots up, FIRST go to disk utility and verify the hard drive. If it comes back with no problems, proceed with the fresh install of the system by following the prompts on the disk.

Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

Just got a refurbished HP Pavilion DV7-4165DX laptop. Right out of the box it blue screen crashes and continues to do this several times a day. I have used the backup partition to reformat/reinstall...


One of the main reasons for blue screen crashes is a faulty device driver.

RMB click "My computer" - LMB "Manage" - LMB "Device Manager" and look for yellow question marks in the device listing. If you find one, said device driver needs attention.

To find drivers for you laptop, go to the HP website, follow links for support and downloads entering details of you laptop and operating system as you go.

It may be worth the trouble of updating you drivers to the latest versions anyway.
