Dell inspirion 6000 is showing "loading PBR2.....done. NTLDR IS MISSING.HOW TO FIX

Use the Restoration Disk. When asked choose Repair.
(Non-Destructive Installation)

You are missing basic Windows files. Boot loader files.
Also you may have to prepare to replace the harddrive. May have bad Sectors on it.
Means I would copy off all personal information, after getting that laptop going again, or you may lose it.

My hp g61 will only display a blank/black screen with the cursor after it has finish booting

That cursor is the way in which the BIOS of the laptop is telling you that Windows is completely corrupted and unbootable. You will need to reinstall it so use the recovery cd that came with the laptop.

When you start the computer,there is no image display on the screen but the computer boots until you hear coming on and yet no image display.

Use an external monitor to verify that your laptop is booting up. If you get a display on external monitor and not in your built-in LCD, you have 3 possible problem, 1st - bad LCD panel, 2nd - bad inverter, 3rd- bad CFL. In any case, it is easier to just replace the whole LCD assembly. You can find used and cheap ones at

Lost screen

you need to find out if your screen is bad. does it sounds like it booting up and you hear the sound when windows boots up? you can also try connecting your laptop to an external monitor. if you see a display on your monitor, then you screen on the notebook will need to be replaced, if you dont see a display on the external monitor, then you have most likely a bad mainboard , you might have a bad ram module too. but most likely the main board

thank you

Garbage video on display on boot up

Sounds like your notebook video card is bad. It drives both the LCD panel and external displays. You'll need to replace it.

Problem in booting then only mouse pointer display on the screen

Sounds like you messed it up well!

Suggest you cut your losses and just reinstall the system afresh
but first try booting from the install DVD and going through the process until you reach the options to install or repair
Select Repair and let the DVD try and fix it

With Acer I think you press F11 or F12 when booting to get the one time boot choice.
When you have it just select the DVD player the disc is in and let it do its thing

Black Screen

try hooking up an external video source. Check to see if the computer is actually booting up. if the computer boots up, then the LCD invertor or Backlight of the screen is bad, need to be replaced.

If the computer does not boot up after hooking up an external video source, then most likely your motherboard is bad!

need to be replaced.

My Ibm t49 the display shuts off as soon i as i boot up help

There are several possibilities within two categories:

SOFTWARE (you are using MS, so this is more likely)
HARDWARE these symptoms can be caused by bad battery and/or bad PSU (AC Power Supply Unit)

Software: You may have a virus, or may have damaged the NT kernel, or some critical software components by installing cheap games or bad SW. Read the recovery instructions on your XP CD to boot and run recovery and/or utilities that might repair the laptop OS. If you have no CD, try booting and hitting F6 key after BIOS screen... then explore the options there. Next, try booting and hitting F8 key after BIOS screen... then explore the options there.

If there are no problems repaired or evident in software, you should remove the battery, plug in the PSU and try booting. If all goes well, your battery is probably bad. If NOTHING happens, then your PSU is definitely bad (or the PSU cable/jack/connection to your computer is bad)

Conversely, remove the PSU and boot only with the battery. If it boots up (or goes farther than it did before) then the battery may be low/damaged BECAUSE the PSU is bad. If your laptop does not even open/get at least to BIOS screen, then the battery is dead. Try recharging overnight with laptop off but plugged into AC. If it is the same in the morning, replace the battery.

Both the battery and PSU can be checked with a VTVM, to compare voltage/output levels, with the ratings on the labels
