Apparently something went wrong bigtime in the hardware. Does it beep once or more than once? In the second case, check the beep sequence against HP BIOS Beep Codes:

If the screen remains completely blank, it's either the video board or the motherboard (if your motherboard has integrated video, you may be able to solve the error by plugging in an additional video card. But it's better if you get it looked on by a tech, because the problem might well be elsewhere).

Did you try hitting F8 as it is booting up to get to safe screen? Sometimes that at least gets you into it so you can scan for problems.

After restarting my computer the cursor stopped responding to the mouse.


You're probably running Windows, and that's a common problem, and usually very easy to fix. If you are using a wireless mouse, remove the USB receiver, wait 10 - 20 seconds and put it back in. If that doesn't work, remove USB rec. , shut off mouse and go through a restart. Try restarting with them removed, if it doesn't work, try restart with them in and turned on. You can use keyboard commands to do this next part If that doesn't work, go into the Control Panel, system, device manager, mouse, right click ( lined square to right of space bar ) then properties, reset to default - The windows symbol beside space bar is the start menu, the arrows control scrolling through options or moving the page, TAB changes what the computer is focused on, ALT and F4 closes whatever program you're focused on - pressing it twice will cause a restart. And if your comp ever jams up, press CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time, opens task manager and unjams,,, usually. Hope some of that helped. Grimm

Emachine E528 Laptop is saying a disk read error occured push ctrl+alt+delete an it will restart


The error that you are getting indicates that the system is not able to detect the Hard Drive. We would need to confirm if the Hard Drive is detected in the system BIOS or not. For that we would need to turn off the computer. Turn on the computer and start hitting F2 key to reach BIOS. On the First page of BIOS it should show you the Hard Disk Drive with name and Number. If it shows all drives and none or not detected then it means the hard drive is not getting detected by the system. If you can open the Laptop and reach the Hard Disk Drive you can try to re-seat it to see if it gets detected. If it still remains undetected, Its time to replace the Hard Disk Drive.

Please try the above steps and get back for any further assistance or clarification

When i switch my laptop on, it shows the desktop wallpaper, but nothing else: No start button, no icons, nothing! and it doesn't respond to Right clicking or ctrl alt delete....i even tried putting a disc...


Try to re-boot the computer into Safe Mode (continually Press F8 while you boot up.

Then select safe mode from the list of options (use arrow keys)

If you can boot into safe mode, then try to see why the computer will not boot, perhaps you have recently installed a new software program, update, etc.

Good Luck

When I turn on my laptop it goes on but the screen is black and it seems locked up. Tried control, alt, delete and turning off and on but nothing works.


in stead of alt crtl del try pressing F8 key on keyboard after you turn it on, it will display a few options. go from thee.

in case it does not stars, you may have a faulty memory ram. it needs to be replaced

I turn my playstation 3 on and all it does is shows this purple wave. and then nothing else happens. i cant do anything with it.


You can try these steps, but it will delete all saved games :

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 :

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.
