When u say setup screen I assume you mean the bios setup screen;which probably means ur hard drive is corrupted.
Make sure u have a os cd in drive and turn pc on to boot from disk,if you get a message in the black screen saying no operation system or no drive,turn off pc and remove hard drive ,check for dust and bent pins and replace making sure its seated(fitted)properly.the action of removing hd and refitting usually does the trick due to small particles of dust which act like conductors and can cause shorts.
if u dont see that message but have the option to install ;go ahead and install in next screen(blue setup)sys checks for exististing os ;if it finds one it asks to confirm install or repair,you can choose either one,both options take about the same time.though I always prefer to install clean (new) copy and delete partition,create new partition and format before install.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

Im trying to find out how to rebbot my laptop to factory settings because my main screen wont show i have to start task maneger to get to the net


Can you tell us what laptop it is, as all laptops have different systems

The most common way, you need to enter the BIOS Setup screen (usually entered by pushing "del" or "F2" on the splash screen (the very first screen you see when you start the laptop). Navigate (using up, down, left, right arrow keys and enter) the pages until you see Load Setup Defaults. Select the option and confirm.

However please note that it will completly revamp your laptop to how it was when it came out of the factory. Any data you wish to keep safe please back-up on an external device as it will be lost.

DV8309 power up problem: blue lights on for few seconds then off


The inverter inside the lcd panel is most likely your problem. Try removing the whole lcd screen from the laptop if you are capable and run it with the external screen to confirm. leave the lcd switch off (this lcd switch above the power button turns the lcd inverter on and off)

MY DELL LATITUDE D600 WONT LOAD WINDOWS AT ALL :( HELP


The computer is telling you is that the hard drive isn't being detected. This could be due to a poor connection from the drive to the motherboard, hard drive failure, or even something that's gone wrong on the motherboard.

In the BIOS setup (the F2 option), check to see if the drive is listed on the screen where you can check connected devices. If the hard drive doesn't show up, you'll probably want to replace it. The good news is that it's very simple to get to the drive, and you easily find replacements from several online vendors (Tiger Direct, Newegg, and so on) or possibly even at large retailers. Here is a link to online documentation at Dell for this model. You can view or download the service manual which shows just what you need to do. (The hard drive access page is here.)

If you replace the drive you'll have to reload all your software, but you've already decided that's not a bad thing.

Acer Aspire 5920 start up problem


Hi there.

Ok. When you turn on the laptop, press F2 to enter the setup. Have a look through these settings for something called D2D Recovery. Make sure this is Enabled. Save your settings and exit. When the laptop reboots, press the keys to start the recovery program.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work.

Can't get the IBM Think Pad 600E to start.


You need to get into the BIOS setup.

Turn off power to the computer. Wait about 30 seconds. Hold down the F1 key while you turn
on power and keep holding down that key until the setup screen comes up. Go to the network boot section and disable Network Boot. Save setting and restart. That should fix it.

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.
