Screen gets hot and turns black on the bottom right

I just recently put a new hard drive on my compurter, and had backed up my drivers on disk to put them back on, after trying to reinstall the drivers, i noticed my laptop got really hot on the bottom right of the screen and starting to form a black spot. I turned my computer off, and turned it back on. The spot was not there, but started to form after a few minutes. I turned my computer off for a few hours. now when i turn it on, the screen will become almost completely dark. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thank you

There are many causes of this. On cause can be the Cold cathode fluorescent
tube itself. This is a grossly misnamed device as the cathodes get very hot
indeed. One of the tube failure modes as they wear out is that the cathodes
can get much hotter than normal, and this affects the screen near it.

How to fit a secondry ata hard drive

The first thing you want to do is turn off your PC and then unplug it.Now just open up the {CPU Cover} handle and it comes right off.Sometimes there will be small screws on the back of your door which you just have to unscrew.There a little green plastic tray right above Internal hard drive actually pulls right out and allows you to put the hard drive right in.So, once we remove the tray from the computer case, there will be four pegs inside of it that go into the serial ATA hard drive put those in.Once they're in, slide those back into need to use a serial ATA cable to plug directly into the back of the hard drive and plug it into the motherboard. On the bottom part of the motherboard, you will see several serial ATA ports.plug one into motherboard and plug the other end directly into the back of your hard drive.

The next thing you need to do is get power to the hard drive.The components of your computer are powered by your power supply. From your power supply, there should be a cable coming out specifically to power your internal hard drives.Newer plugs are designed for serial ATA hard drives. And those will plug directly into the back of your hard drive.After you're done close up your computer Cover, just plug it back in, turn it on an Windows will automatically recognize your new serial ATA hard drive.

If the Hard drive still not showing up Follow this Steps:-

You need to format the drive before you can use it for data.

Right-Click on the My Computer icon either on your desktop or in the Start Menu and select Manage.

A new window titled Computer Management comes up.
Select Storage from the left hand side by clicking it once, then select Disk Management(local) from the right side by double-clicking it. Find your new drive and format it with one large partition.

First you partition - do a primary partition if you want only one partition on the hard drive. Then you format the partition - again right click and select format use NTSF - use default allocation size and give the new volume a label (no spaces allowed in the name).

Hard drive not found inspiron 1545

Either the hard drive has gone bad or the disk controller is having issues recognizing it.

Remove the power cord, then remove the cables from the drive and put them back if it's a desktop. If it's a laptop, remove the power cord, remove the battery, then remove the cover that houses the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the hard drive from the bay, then put it back.

First off turn off the computer then turn it back on and watch for which key to hit to get into the System Setup or Bios. You want to go there and look at the hard drive and make sure it is set to Auto for the primary drive. Also look thru the bios settings and see if you see anything that references Large Drive Support or AHCI. If you see AHCI toggle it to another option. If you changed anything in the bios, save it and try rebooting.

If the system still does not recognize the hard drive, see if you can run the Check Disk Utility. I've seen time when it looked like the operating system was gone from the disk, but Check Disk repaired it.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem your hard drive might have crashed.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Do you mean the F8 key which is what gets you to safe mode.You must keep tapping the button as you switch on and keep tapping until you see a new screen, select the hard drive you wish to boot to and keep tapping then it opens black screen grey corners, you really should check all you connections  before you try to switch the machine on.Common cause  for blue screen (hardware) loose ide /sata cable to harddrive, pull out and push back tight,check the same for power cable to drive, if not hardware then it will be software, so you should remove any recent drivers or programs you recently installed by going into safe mode, then try to start normally.Failing all of the above you may have caught a virus or malware, malwarebytes is a good start to check the system for probs.Good luck!!

Windows XP Unsuccessful on Start Up

no you just need to fix your bios problem, if you dont have the manual take the battery out of the motherboard that keeps power to the bios keep it out for a few minutes put it back in then turn it on it should go to bios automatically then just go to set best defaults for ststem hit y for yes then hit enter and it should take off fine if it dont then you need to take it to a pro who can reset it for you manually or reprogram it that would be cheapest for you without trashing it.
