Sounds like you have one of 4 problems.

1) the screen has gone bad.
2) the cable to the screen is bad or lose.
3) the drivers have become corrupted - try reinstalling them for the video card.
4) the vimbedded video card has gone bad.

My Sony VAIO Notebook VPCX11S1E wont boot up anymore. when i try it jyst goes to blue screen. How can i get iSony VAIO Notebook VPCX11S1E it to load up and start up normally.?


It seems that your machine is suffering a fatal error on startup. If the blue screen flashes up with some non-sensical writing on it then that is the error I speak of. This condition can be caused by a faulty piece of hardware, most commonly the hard disk drive in my experience. BUT it can also be just a faulty file in the Operating System on your machine and may not be a hardware problem at all.

Either way, the first ting I would do in your position is to reinstall your Operating System. You are using Windows 7 I see. Windows 7 is a good OS. In order to try to recover your computer you will need an original Windows 7 DVD disk. Insert the disk into the DVD drive and then follow the instructions at this like here...

My compaq nc8000 will try to boot up (only shows window xp, then goes to a blue screen with a lot of dots in it), but first shows zeros all across the screen not allowing you to do anything at all.


Hi, sounds like what is known as the blue screen of death. You can try reseting your operating system to an earlier time, before the problem began, by pressing the ESC or Del key during bootup, this will give you the option to boot into safe mode, from where you can attempt the reset. Or you can insert the CD that came with your compaq and perform a system restore. Both of these options will not remove any saved data.

I have a aspire one notebook computer i bought last year it boots up to the windows part then it takes me too a blue screen with two computers on the page and the name aspire one what's wrong??? please...


The blue screen (called the blue screen of death) comes up usually when enough hardware has changed that it "flags" the system, telling it not to boot. This is kind of like a voting system, drives count so much, video cards count so much, etc. One way to make the blue screen come up for sure is to move the hard drive from one computer to another. This particular thing overrides all other votes and says "no way." This is because it knows which processor was in place when windows was installed, and if a different one shows up it knows the drive was installed in another computer. This happens on desktops a lot, like when you change video cards too often, and other hardware. I haven't seen it too much on laptops, but it can happen. Usually, if you get a blue screen, you will have to reinstall Windows.

Try's to boot up, but goes to small blue screen


When your computer hardware appears to power up okay, but the Windows XP operating system won't boot properly, you have to begin a troubleshooting expedition that includes getting into the operating system, determining the problem, and then fixing it. To help you get started on this expedition, here are 10 things you can do when Windows XP won't boot.

#1: Use a Windows startup disk



#2: Use Last Known Good Configuration



#3: Use System Restore



#4: Use Recovery Console



#5: Fix a corrupt Boot.ini



#6: Fix a corrupt partition boot sector



#7: Fix a corrupt master boot record



#8: Disable automatic restart



#9: Restore from a backup


pls 4 stars .... :-)

Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.


If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.

Hello, please when i put no my sony vaio notebook, the colors are mixed on my screen, i have changed the screen and the screen cable but the problem is still there


Try taking out one ram stick at a time in between boots. It sounds like you make a bad stick of ram and that is causing video issues. Just a thought.

My emachine won't work at all i don't even get the windows picture it keeps going to setup in the blue color then black


Is the monitor plugged in properly?
Can you get to the BIOS? --> Does it display the words on the screen during the boot process before the Windows Splash screen?
I'm not sure what setup in the blue color means. If it's the BSOD or Blue Screen of death then let it cool (power it off) and boot again later. Perhaps a heat issue. If you do actually get it to boot copy your most critical data off the hard drive quickly.
Could be a lot of things.
