Ok you will have to get the cd from a retailer or call your computer manifacture to get the repair disk.
you can also try rebooting the computer and b4 you see the logo hit f1
or f2 or delete to get you into the bios. in the cmos you will look at the bottom of the screen or upper left and you will see load default.
click on load default and look to save and exit. allow computer to reboot. if this doesnt repair the problem then you will need to install the disk

Screen says operating system nt found

Which Operating System did you have?

Make sure you don't have a cd or dvd in the cd/dvd drive. If your system is set to boot from the cd/dvd drive and you have a movie, music or any anything in the drive that is not the operating system disc you will get a message like that.

If the above is not the case, You will need a repair disc or a Operating System Disc. Put it in the cd drive and boot from it. Get to a dos command (black screen with white lettering) prompt so you can enter the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour and you will see the percentages going from high to low, but that's normal. Let it run to completion then reboot.

In windows xp - to get to the dos prompt select Repair when the options screen appear.

In Vista when the options come up you want to go to the recovery console and select the dos command down at the bottom.

**You might try a system repair in Vista first to see if it can fix it.

The light is on but it is not loading. no picture in the screen

do you see the bios starup....or is the screen totally blanc as you switch on? if the screen is totally blanc then it maybe the monitor cable is u/s, if the startup screen appears and nothing else, then the hard drive is either u/s or you need to reload your operating system.

No Dell Logo on the LCD screen while starting the computer

I would suggest you to try doing a BIOS default settings

Immediately after you start the computer start hitting F2( or Delete key in some systems), It will take you to BIOS. Just load the default settings for BIOS save settings and exit.

This should resolve your issue

I cannot logon to my PC

Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.

Blank/black screen at power on

This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.

Aim doesn't work on my blackberry pearl flip

Backup contacts or any pertinent information using desktop manager. Then go to options, security, General Settings. Click on option key (Bberry Key). Wipe Blackberry, type blackberry in the screen. Warning this will erase everything off your blackberry but since you have backed it up first you can restore your contacts or pertinent files. When you run through the wipe process you do not have to delete all 3rd party applications but I have found if you are having a memmory problem that can cause this fault you may need to install a memory card of at least 2gb or more then go to options media card and change the prompt to yes so that it will use the card instead of storning on the device. The pearl is notorius for memory issues without using storage card/media card or saving to device instead of card. Check with web for various memory hole issues and suggested fixes.
