If you do not get anything what so ever on your screen, then the motherboard is fried because video is built into motherboard and capacitors overheat and fry out. If hard-drive, you would still get bios

Acer aspire 5515(laptop) screen is black turns on screen stayscompletly black...no acer logo nothing just a black screen. power button comes up green u can hear the fan and harddrive start up


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

probably doing a network boot instead of booting from the harddrive. enter the BIOS make sure the harddrive is detected.Also check the boot configuration and verify if the harddrive is set as the primary or default boot.

Ya sounds like the hard drive has died or there is a interface problem since you suffered from water damage. you may be able to get data off the hard drive by using a external hard drive connector but it may or may not work.

As the computer boots. The screen goes black. Nothing happens


When you mention boots, Is the computer able to POST a message to the screen or do you mean switching the computer on and there nothing POST to the screen. If your computer is able to post and then you get a black screen after that with possibly a flashing underscore symbol, then you are missing a O.s or your harddrive is currupted. If nothing is POST to the screen once the computer is turned on, then there could be couple of culprit that is causing this defect to RAM memory error, VGA, CPU, or the Motherboard itself..... The only way to test what is actually wrong is to have other hardware compatiable to test the computer itself.... would reccommend you taking it in to a computer shop since they have diagnositc tools, unless you have other computer hardware to test this with.

My Dell Vostro 1500 does not start. It is Vista Home. So, I am trying to repair it with the installation disk. However, the installation stuck after the "Windows is loading files...." bar completes....


For that you need to fix bad sectors on harddrive.
Boot computer with vista disk then enter in recovery console mode.
Then type in prompt "chkdsk /r" without "" then press enter then it fix and recovers errors on harddrive.
Then again choose repair option.
There is not harddrive hardware issue but there issue of boot sector virus and bad sectors of harddrive.
So if you delete all partition and create partition again and install fresh copy of vista then you can do it.Try repartitioning 4 to 5 times then you can get vista again.
But if there is important data on harddrive then enter in recovery console mode and run "chkdsk /r" without "" then try.
This problem is not of your harddrive you can fix it if you repartition and reformating the harddrive 4 to 5 times.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Sony Vaio KPCG-K25 PC Notebook suddenly won't boot up. Windows acts like it's starting, then goes to a black screen. CD drive sounds like it engages, but it too will just go to a black screen.


For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then if you are able to see safe mode and other menu then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to start menu then control panel ->dispaly ->settings.
Also make sure that graphic driver installed and working fine.
change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
then check in normally.
But if you are not able to see even safe mode then you need recovery disk or windows disk.
Boot computer with that disk.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as cd/dvd rom .then save and exit.
Thern it boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure and repair your previous windows.
Let me kno wif you need further assistance.
