It sounds as if you have one of two possible problems, either the light tube in your screen is burnt out or windows is unable to load the video driver. When you see the HD green, it means the drive has started, the amber indicated it is working to load the operating system and then it stops - basically indicating it has found something it cannot load or is missing some files or is possibly busy. If your screen shows either the logo or the boot up screen (black with white letters usually), then the screen is working and it is a windows problem. Occasionally on updates or hardware changes it will take windows 5 minutes, up to a half hour at most to load - if you have a flashing cursor in the upper left corner of the screen, try just waiting to see if it will eventually load.

Why is my Sony VAIO VPCEB33FM green power light flashing?


It won't be the cpu. If it was, nothing would happen. I would look for a GPU issue, possible over heat.

Dell E173FP flashes on for a second on/off switch is constant green


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


hope this helps

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

My samsung r519 wont turn on. when i press the on button i here the fan going, yet the screen stay's black and only the power light comes on. what could the problem be?


Does the fan stay running? if it does! it is probably a motherboard issue, if the fan is working correctly it should wind down, and if the hard drive is working "hard drive light will flicker" hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of your laptop if you see windows boots up then it would indicate laptop screen problem, but if the fan and the power light are the only activity then the motherboard is the problem.

Black screen on booting my Compaq 610 notebook


If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.

First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.

To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.

If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.

The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.

If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.

On powering on'the screen remains black and the ethernet plug is flickering. no sound from the hard drive


the hard drive could have failed..Try a hard start to see if it will react. Do you get any beeps?? a warning beep or beeps may indicate a hard drive failure. Try to get into C-Mode set up. click alt/cntrl/del as you turn on the set.or alt/cntrl F10. Hard drive failures can happen if ther is to much written to the drive or just a plain 'Crash'.
