Re: notebook isn,t working

How often does it do this? if it does it every time you turn it on, then its a software problem/error. if this has happened once and it wont go on again, then its dead! take it back ASAP, btw good shoice of laptop, once its working!! :)

Start up is blackish screen and stays frozen a long time

Try this! Turn off the notebook, take out the battery and hold the power button for 30sec.! It will help to take left over charge of the motherboard.

I use Acer aspire 4315 laptop. The power button isn't working. When I press the power button nothing happen. So how can I turn on my laptop?

maybe you have already done this, but remember that many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30sec. as well as disconnect the AC power to reset them. Always try to do this when everything seems completely dead.
Please let me know if it's working or not,and thanks for using fixya

My Compaq presario f572us notebook screen turns black upon normal startup. The screen does not turn black if I start-up in the safe mode. It only when i attempt to start windows normally. Everything loads...

i also have a compaq presario f572us that's been having similar problems. when i went onto the hp website i saw that apparently they've been having similar problems with this type of computer as they offer free repairs for 2 years after you bought it. you should probably check if this works for you too

Blank (dark) notebook screen after hooking up digital ext monitor

I notice a difference in the setup of the two monitors, have you installed the correct driver for the new screen?

Try F8 on startup to get into safe mode, this should allow you to use the default VGA screen, and to reset the correct monitor drivers.

Gateway 3522GZ display

Some searching on forums convinced me the inverter had failed. Picked one up for $65, removed the frame around the screen, removed the mounting screw for the inverter, and unplugged both ends of the old and plugged in the new. Put it back togeher and fired it up, bright again. Key here was that a remote monitor still worked which meant video card was OK. The lamp could have been bad, but apparently the life of lamps is pretty decent.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


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.


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
