I have a Dell 1720. It does not boot normally. I get a message to insert a boot disk, which I don't have. If I have to hold down the f8 key when I turn it on, and choose run Windows normally or last successful boot, then everything works fine. If I run the diagnostics, I get error code 0322, error accessing ther LCD inverter, then there are 3 beeps, pause, 2 beeps, pause, 2 beeps, pause and a series of up and down notes. My screen is working fine. I think it is in the registry but don'e know how to fix it.

This is a hardware problem more than a software one. Running RegCure scan would at its worst cause a registry error but a system restore would fix it. The LCD inverter has to do with the backlight rather than the LCD itself. In this instance I would say it needs replacing.

Does the Dell laptop have recovery software. If it does, here's a way to overcome the problem and make your own set of recovery disks.

When you do a destructive restore, it actually rolls back all of the software, including the recovery software so you can actually make a set. At this point, it will fix all of the software issues.

and follow the prompts.

When i start leptop then no sccren just i comes message to boot divice insert hard disk so what to do i don t have hard disk

That's a problem! I think the EeePC just ran on a flash drive and that's it, but you need a device to boot from, and normally it's the hard drive accessed by undoing the screw in the front underside center. It's supposedly common for them to be stolen. Get a replacement and restore from backups.

I installed W7 ultimate for my dell inspiron n5010 but when i restart it an error message "0xc000000e" appears and becomes unable to start windows normally. what should i do regarding this...

Windows 7 Boot Error - Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed
This means that the hard disk is messed up. Try to reinstall again, this time using the entire hard disk and not just a partition and make sure a full format and not a Quick one is used.
If you get the same error even after that then the disk is damaged - replace it (or take it to a repair shop if you don't have enough experience) and then reinstall again.

Laptop screen stays blank at bootup

First try holding down the insert key while booting. Next either your F1 or F2 key will get you into bios.
Try pressing those keys alternately while booting to enter setup. If you get to bios follow the previous poster's advice.
Try re seating the ram boards and the hard drive. Make sure you don't have any usb flash drives installed.
