Re: Screen

Sounds like the monitor is going bad. I had this happen too and had to replace the monitor and it's been great since! If you can work fine, it's not the computer itself, it's the monitor.

Why doesnt my compter get past the booting screen?

Early in the post stage, bad ram or failing hard drive.

Do all the following with the PC unplugged:

Remove cables from Hard drive - pay attention to where the go back, turn on pc and see if it goes further (if it does, you probably have a failing hdd and should seek professional help immediately. Don't keep trying it, else you lose everything for sure.

If that doesn't work, plug the hdd back in and again with power UNPLUGGED, remove one of the ram sticks. Turn pc on.

If works, you have a bad stick or slot, if still nothing, put ram back in and take out next stick. Repeat until you find the problem.

Start up problem.need to turn on and off many times.after turn on run for a while ,blue sreen appears ,then everything goes off

Try pressing F8 repeatedly on startup and at the options screen, if you get the choice, choose repair my computer. If not, choose safe mode. This loads only the basic drivers and files, so if the machine starts in safe mode, there is probably an issue with a driver or a corrupt registry file. If you have the recovery disc, you can try booting it from the CD drive and do a startup repair. Choose language settings and then choose repair your computer.

Blue screen appear while formating..

Could you not format your computer? Usually, when formatting with XP blue screen appears for a few minutes and then it continues formatting. But if it is not your problem, try formatting your system again with another OS.

My Seagate starts to boot up but then goes to a dark blue screen(no words) and you can hear the H.D> working, then the computer beeps once and nothing further happens.

the blue screen, is usually a Hardware Or Software ( operating System error ) The Computer beeping Once, States that The Computers Hardware is Fine. I,d try formatting the hard-drive, and reinstalling Your Operating System et,c. I,d assume this is a missing or corrupt windows system file. Or possible hard-drive error. ( virus-Trojan-Worm ) are also suspect.

Blue screen keeps coming up

The blue screen you are referring to usual appears when there is a software/hardware conflict.

If you have recently added any hardware to your computer , try removing it and rebooting the computer..if it was software you have recently installed , try booting the computer in "Safe Mode" ( tap the F8 key when the computer is first booting) and uninstall the program.......

If that does not work , we would need to do some more troubleshooting. First we would need the exact error code from the blue screen. That will help us narrow down exactly where the issue is coming from. In the picture below notice the red box's , the code in those box's is the code we need from yours.

I have a HP dv9030ea laptop. It will not boot up. When turned on the laptop screen is just a slightly lit haze however if I plug in an external monitor you see the windows logo and time bar waiting to load...

Your Vga hardware is under trouble - Laptop VGA is builtin with the motherboard so we can say your motherboard has to be replaced - Also note that if any hardware corruption or failure as well as some file corruption windows os automatically reboots. It will reboot until you solve your issue............

Hard drive message

Probably the hard-drive has gone bad.. First try a complete re-install of windows (you will lose all saved data on the hard-drive, so if you can, back up all important files first)..

If that doesn't work, you need to purchase a new hard-drive
