You should try booting into safe mode. Press the F8 key before the windows logo and choose safe mode without network support. If windows loads run a checkdisk by right clicking on the c drive, left click on properties and then select the tools tab. From there you can run a disk test to check for errors. If you get that far then reboot and see if it starts normally. If not try F8 again and try selecting restore the last known working condition. This will restore your settings from the last time it worked. If you can’t get to the F8 screen get back with me and I will try a few more drastic solutions. Good Luck

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in startup....it just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast


Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.


same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Everything was fine then computer froze so I manually shut it down. Now I hear and see the computer boot-up with the Windows Insignia & Gateway logo and the mouse pointer but then it's black, except...


Restart the computer and press F8 key after you hear a beep or before it gives you the Windows logo on Startup. It will give you then the Advanced Startup Options.

You could try the option 'Last Known Good Configuration'.

You may also try Safe Mode option and do a System Restore. On Safe Mode, System Restore will automatically loads up at startup. You can then choose the date and time where you had it last working before.

If those can't be done, you may want to run scan file checker and fix system errors for you. Do this from Start> All Programs> Accessories> right click on Command Prompt. Then select Run as Administrator.

On the Command Prompt, enter sfc /scannow

That will automatically repair system files. However, it may ask for Windows Setup CD.

MY IPHONE IS FROZEN ON THE APPLE LOGO SCREEN


You need to a fresh restore of the iPhone. Hold down the home and power buttons together until the screen goes black. Then while the screen is still black, plug it into your computer WHILE holding down the home button.
At this point iTunes should detect your iPhone and tell you that you need to do a restore.
Hope this helps!

Are you able to go safe mode? Reboot and when the logo appears, press f8 and select safe mode. If you are able to, you might want to run a antispyware or antivirus software.

Let me know if you are able to access that.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
