Press power button and looks like it wants to boot up but then switches off. Very hit or miss when it will finally boot up. Once running it is ok.

When the machine fails the POST test, it turns off. that usually indicates the CPU is not seated correctly, or the CPU has a problem. However, since you said it runs OK once it starts, that leads me to think you have a bad system board. System boards typically go bad gradually, but sometimes they just fail. Also, if you are using a docking station, you are introducing another factor that can cause system board failure. Docking stations eat motherboards and in my opinion, should NOT be used unless its permanently attached.

How do I get my toshiba satellite L505 to stop starting up in safe mode?


Let it start in safe mode, Once it boots up click Start/Programs/ and look for the RUN prompt. It might be under the Accessories folder. Once you get RUN to open type msconfig and press OK.

When the System Configuration window opens Click on the "Boot.ini" tab at the top and make sure the /SAFEBOOT option is not selected. If it is, remove the check mark then hit OK. Reboot and see if it goes to normal.

Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.


When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

Compaq CQ4010F Desktop PC won't turn on after a power surge


You probably and lets hope so, have an Electro Static Charge Buildup on your desktop. Remove the Power Cord and Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 Seconds plug the Power Cord back in the hit the Power Button. If it boots then you had an Static Charge Buildup. If it does not boot and you say it happened after a power surge then either your Power Supply or Motherboard is possibly damaged. Do you hear fans, hear the disk drive running, see lights, hear the CD Rom click once and see the light on the CD Rom drive com on briefly after you hit the Power Button. If so it would seem that your power supply is ok.

I copied a text script to FD7, but final draft wont allow me to type new text --- the keys add one new letter then it "pings" every time i hit a key thereafter. I'm forced to compose/edit on...


Hello.

Try System Restore to resolve your problem.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when FD7 worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

An alternative would be to reinstall Final Draft 7.

Hope this helps.

Accidentally put my system on standby mode..using XP OS and DIY desktop.now i cannot get out of standby mode..check KB and mouse ok..any shortcut key or other ways i can start up and boot?even my two DVD...


I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

Compaq presario 2500 notebook won't boot


This sounds like a weird solution, but it worked for me. I recently bought a used Presario 2500, it worked when the guy showed it to me, when I got home it didn't work two days later. I tried several tips from the web, finally I started pushing several buttons randomly. I pushed the Email (Envelope) button, and the computer powered on suddenly. Now, the Envelope button is the only button that will power the computer on. When the computer is on, that button will also bring up Outlook, but when the computer is off, that button turns it on. Let me know if this fixes it for you.

Boot up takes too long


This happens when the computer gets full of "junk" (this happens with any computer over time) and can be remedied with a fresh windows install.

If you don't plan to reinstall windows in near future I suggest you go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any software you don't use/need

Also tweaking the system registry migh help speed up boot time:

1. Click ‘Start’ then 'Run’
2. Type in ‘Regedit’ then click ‘Ok’
3. Navigate to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Cur rentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\ ‘
4. Right-click on “EnablePrefetcher” and set the value to ‘0′
5. Close 'Regedit'
6. Navigate to 'Windows\Prefetch' folder (usualy drive on C:) and delete all its contents
5. Reboot.
7. Enjoy greatly improved boot time ;]

Hope this helps!

Ok I've just found out how to get the interlaced/progressive problem sorted out. It is as follows and PLEASE REMEMBER you will be doing this "Blind" sice the screen is black:

1. Power on the DVD unit.
2..Press the "SET UP" button on the remote, ONCE (DVD Display should show "Setup" )
3. Using the arrow buttons on the remote, push the RIGHT arrow ">" ONCE
4..Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
5. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote ONCE
6. Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
7. Press the "ENTER" Button on the remote ONCE
At this point you should have your picture and menu displayed on the screen, simply hit setup again to exit, and get the hell out of there!

If you want a copy of what you should be looking for, e mailed, I can do that.
Finally, to do a system restore, which will achive the same results (but you'll have to reset date, time etc.), follow steps 1 & 2 Then instead of hitting the DOWN arrow once, press it THREE times and hit "ENTER" this will restore the unit to factory settings. I have never done this so I am only guesing what other settings you will have to adjust, as well as time and date.

I also have the details on how to make the unit region free, email me and I'll send them to you.
Good Luck!
