My lap top was working fine yesterday , but when i went to turn it on today the startup said to use "run in safe mode " or others options similar to that , i chose one , & it still didn't...


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. 1. Start up your desktop as normal but as soon as it starts keep pressing the 'F8' key. 2. You will have a black background with white writing on and lots of options. 3. Use the up and down arrow keys and select last known good configuration, then press the enter key to select it. philswift_4.jpg
Your computer should start up. If you have a blank screen, do you hear the fans whirring and see lights on the front? If so then your computer works but is not sending s signal out to the monitor. Check all cables to make sure they are securely connected. If you still have no image. Swap your monitor for a friends one that you know works. This will test if it is your monitor that has failed. If you see an image on your friends you will need a new monitor or new monitor cable. If you do not see an image on your friends monitor and your PC has lights and fan whirring then you need to get a new graphics card. If you have no lights and no fan whirring it is outside the scope of this and we need some more information as it could be 1. Failed power supply 2. Failed memory 3. Blown motherboard 4. Failed processor
Please report back with answers to 1. Do you hear fans whirring? 2. Do you see a power light/led light up? (in example pic it is green) 3. Do you see the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) LED/light flash at all? philswift_5.jpg

Many thanks for your information

Hi , i turned on my desktop & left it so after a while the screen saver started as usuall but withing secs the monitor went blank and blinking as if there is no signal so i checked the signal cable...


your pc probably freezed up for some reason, you can turn it off by keep pressing the power button. After a few seconds it should power down. reboot the computer, he wil probably start a checkdisk and afterwards your computer should be fine. backup your pc asap, and try to find the reason for the freeze (recently installed new drivers/software?)

Flat screen is going out


Replace the VGA or HDMI (whichever you're using) Cable, and the Power Cable (one of the two can cause this problem, or even worse, fry it!)

Then,...... try connecting the monitor (with new video and power cables to another pc that you know for a fact is working correctly... the problem could be your power supply, motherboard, etc..

If that doesn't work.....Return The Monitor if you can..........cuz if the above doesnt fix your problem, ........then you'll know the monitor is bad......but don't assume that til you try my solution k!

On off button


remove the battery and try to start it using AC power, if the button is stuck or jammed try to free it using a small flat headed screwdriver, take care to be gentle not to damage the button, if the machine is still under warranty, sent it for repair

One touch recovery system


See if there is a D: partition on the laptop. If there is, you can find everything there. A service partition has been included with newer systems. You can access your service partition during the startup process
A set of recovery CDs or DVDs can be created in the Rescue and Recovery predesktop area. A CDRW drive or CDRW/DVDRW drive and writable media are required.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:

To Start the Product Recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.
Good luck.

ADVENT KC550P Lap Top scren


the pc is standing at command prompt, which means it is unable to find the boot.ini file required to boot into windows

When you say you pressed F8 did you keep pressing it until you got a menu saying Safe Mode,last known good configuration, start in VGA mode etc, if so use last known good configuration and let it reboot.

If still nothing then you will need the windows cd to perform a system repair.
