Power supply fuse maybe trip/busted, you let repair the PSU to repair shop or you replace it with the same wattage rating or higher.

My LG blu ray 3-D dvd player just stopped working. all it says is boot. I unpluged it but still just says boot. It was working fine. Now it wont turn on at all just says boot, its said boot for the pa

My LG 670 also said 'boot' after a upgrade attempt and appeared stuck there. I searched LG support for a factory reset option, which is: Disconnect the LG power cable from the wall / power stripHold down the power button the front of the player for 30 secondsRe-insert the power cordTurn the player back on. Note: my player showed 'boot' again for a few minutes, then shut off. When I turned it on again, it went through the normal power up cycle, then shut itself off (weird). I turned it on again. So far, so good.

I had vista and was installing windows 7 and got to the network part of the install and the system went to resart and it went to a black screen with a fashing curser and now i can not access anything on my...

guess u were trying to install Win7 over does not work that way....Win7 need to be a clean install...that must be installed in a new partition after doing a full low level you will have dual boot at start up...and u chose what u want vista or Win7 to work with for that specific session....
Dual boot helps in many ways...
1 - it helps file management better
2 - it helps to boot from one OS in case the other gives trouble
3 - virus attack are removed from either OS
etc etc

the best way to getback you system is to
1 download KILLDISK (DOS) utility program, get the DOS version
2 copy it on to a CD
3 get hold of a Win98 CD (bootable)
4 boot from Win98 cd, dont chose to install Win98,
5 press ESC and let Win98 quit installing, it will lead to a drive letter of you CDROM (say D or E as the case may be)
6 insert the CD that has the KILLDISK DOS utility
7 Run the program by typing KILLDISK at the CD drive letter prompt.
8 Read all the options available there...and kill the drive in which you had VistaOS/Win7 (C)...this will make all you C: drive sectors to "0"
i.e. it will wipe your C: drive clean and u can start with a clean slate....
if u r not concerned with the data in you disk...wipe all drives and disks in the PC....a 20GB disk will take aprox 1 hr to finish

for all this u must have the BIOS enabled to boot from CDROM drive...

once killdisk has finished doing the wiping process....
insert the Vista or Xp cd and install the partition option make 3 or more partitions....C, D, E of at least 30 GB min for Win7 will take aprox 18 GB....
in C: drive install Vista or XP as the case may be.....
once done....let the system boot and let it load Vista or XP
once in Desktop you can insert the Win7 cd and install it on the D or E: drive....the CDROM drive letter will change accordingly....when you make the be carefull to

let me know....

Boot Disc's Not reading, Dvd rom help? or Xp/vista help?

How did you made it boot to the disc? if you used keystrokes to do so, it would be better if you go into your BIOS and set the boot priority making the dvd drive as priority and see if it is gonna work that way. If it does'nt you need to be concerned about the drive itself, it might be having problems as well.

Operating System Problem

Did u format HDD in installing Vista? If not, it means the system had dual boot, and XP boot file was missed. u have to fix the boot file to support dual boot completely.

Not opening my laptop

Here's what you need to do to fix it: Find some way to get Partition Table Doctor ( and put it on either a live boot CD or from a secondary hard drive installation. Once you have that, Scan the partition for errors and select fix boot... Then if you're running Vista get a copy of Vista Recovery Disc ( burn yourself a copy of the disc, and run it at the boot of your computer. Once the cd is loaded, click on REPAIR WINDOWS, select COMMAND PROMPT, then use this command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

If that doesn't work use: bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
and see if your windows boots.

IF you have windows XP, boot up with the Windows XP cd, select Repair (R), go into the command prompt (selecting which windows installation you want to modify) and then type this command: fixboot c:

See if your computer boots now.... The important thing is to try to repair your boot which has been deleted or corrupted, that is why it gives the error: err2err3

Try different recovery tools like Table Doctor in conjunction with your recovery cds (windows xp installation CD and Windows Vista Recovery Disc)

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.
