Seems ur system files starting ur OS have been corrupt
Press F8 when booting.
1. U can go to safe mode & restore ur computer to a date when it was working fine or
2. perform a repair there if (1.) does not solve ur issue

u may need to reformat & install windows back again as a last resort.

The Screen turns black when I attempt to start windows normally. It sounds like windows is starting, but nothing appears on the screen


Hi,

It sounds like windows has been set to a screen resolution beyond the limits of the capabilities of the built in LCD. Luckily windows has a menu that allows you to change to a highly compatible low resolution mode. To select this mode, start tapping the [F8] key just after the HP/Compaq screen when the computer switches on. Hopefully if you pushed the button in time, you should be presented with a menu. Use the up and down arrows on the keyboard to select the option that says either "Enable VGA Mode" or "Enable Low Resolution Video (640x480)".

Windows should now load, but everything will look extra large. To fix this, go into your display properties (right click on desktop and select either "properties" or "screen resolution"), and choose the recommended screen resolution.

Football manager 2010 not loading. nothing coming on screen to run/set up program any ideas?


Check your notebook meets the requirement of the Game you wnat to run.
Download the lastest Windows Installer 4.5 and Check you can installed the program too.Below is the link

If problem still persists,get another installer CD as the Game Installer might be corrupted.

My compaq will start up saying loading files..then it starts to look like its loading up by showing the green bar moving across the screen...then after that nothing but a blank screen...the lights are...


before windows starts press f8 a couple of times to get into safemode.
if windows doesn't load then you probably have to reinstall windows.
If windows does start, try going into msconfig. Go to Start - Run then type in msconfig. click on the startup tab & try to remove some of the start up programs to see if thats the problem.
