Replace the boot screen image with a different image of the same dimensions. There is a utility called Bootskin that will do this for you and has many choices for a replacement.

You need a special Win-Boot Generator which there are Different versions for Vista and Vista SP1. The image format is required to be BMP 800x600 or 1024x768.

The file you are overwritting is C:\Windows\System32\en-US\winload.exe.mui you need to take ownership and set security as windows protects this file.....

Search Google for Windows Boot Generator and you should be in good shape.

How to reset admin password with the cmd when you are a standard user


What's your operating system? After logging in as standard user, you have insufficient privileges to change the admin password via cmd. You need to boot with Windows install media, and replace sethc.exe with cmd.exe. When rebooting to the login screen, you can launch a command prompt and reset your password there.

I already changed all the major parts on this sharp TV including the horizontal transistor. The customer said she was watching the TV and it went off with a line across the screen


This forum is not meant to make revenue to you like technicians. It is meant to help the customers who need help in repairing their devices by themselves. Just study well about electronics, and then try to run a repair shop.

Spot screen


Hello

First find an external monitor to test if its the screen on your laptop or the graphics chip in your laptop. If you have an external monitor then hook it up to your laptop and toggle the video over to see if you still see the spot.If it only shows on the laptop screen the Replace the screen.
Another thing you can do is run the built in Diagnostics
Diagnostics before windows using the F12 Diagnostics
* Reboot and press F12 to enter the Boot Menu
* When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
* The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
* If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
* Press any key to continue
* Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
* After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -
Express Test = Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part
Extended Test = Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically
Custom Test = Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run
Symptom Tree = Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing
* When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen.

Dell m1710 xps will not boot, grey screen only. battery light, num lock lights work and hd lighyt flashes momentarly, then goes off.


Are you certain the laptop is not booting? I had one the other day, customer thought it wasnt booting, but it was the LCD screen that was bad. She had only a gray screen too. Something to try, with the screen up, put your hand on the top of the LCD (fingers on the plastics on the back side, thumb on the screen at about the same position) about 4-5 inches from the left edge and squeeze gently. Does the screen change at all, vertical or horizontal color lines? If it really is NOT booting, try F12 when first powering up and if you get to the boot menu, choose diagnostics, run them and see if you get any errors.

After accidently unplugging the mouse's usb reciever, the pointer froze on the monitor screen.


Try plugging in a standard mouse and changing the settings to it, Then re-boot. Once booted try plugging the TrackMan Wheel back in and changing the mouse settings back to it and re-boot again. Let me know what that does for ya.

Slow 5 MINS TO BOOT FROM FACTORY DEFAULT?


I would suggest booting into Safe Mode with networking (do this by pressing F8 during boot. Just tap it every few seconds until you get the OS selection menu). Once you enter Safe Mode, go to www.gmer.net and download their removal tool. You may have what's called a Rootkit trojan. Those can stay in your system's memory even after a factory default reset.
