Hi,

ou can try these steps:
Turn the computer off and then tapp the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you release the power button after pressing it Keep on tapping the key until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option.Then select safe mode and hit the enter key ,wait till it takes you to the log on screen.Once you are there click on admininstrator and hit enter key.It should take you to the desktop where you can see the icons and the start button .Then click on start ?all programs?accessories?system tools and then system restore.It will take time for the restore page to come up and once its up click on restore my computer to an earlier time and then click next.Select a date when you think that the computer was working fine and the date that you select should be in bold.Then click on next next to exit from the wizard.You will find that the computer restores and then the computer restarts and takes you to the normal screen.If the restore is succesuful then it will take you to windows.
If it does not take the computer to the safe mode or any of the other options then open up the computer tower?locate the memory card that will be inserted in a slot on the motherboard that is the flat square board where you will find the fan and the other hardwares on it .So remove the memory card and then put it back .Reseat the cables for the hard drive ?Reseat the ATX cable which is a bunch of multi coloured cables that comes out from the power box that is again a square box just to the inside of where you connect the power cable .Among those of multi coloured cables you will see a seperarte bunch of cables that would be tied in a knot and the other end of the cable will be connected to the motherboard .It has a big white square connector so remove it .Check if it works.
If it does not take you to safe mode then instead of the f8 key tapp the f11 key until it says system recovery (recovery is the only way that the issue will be taken care of)click on next until you get a screen that has advance option ,then click on it and then select destructive recovery?click next the recovery will start on its own and then once it complets 100% click on restart and then when it comes back you will have to follow the onscreen instructions like selecting the state timezone etc.Please not that recovery formats the hard drive and takes the computrer back to its original factory settings.So it wipes out whatever u have added after you bought the computer.

all the best

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Dell inspirion 530 Black sreen at boot up with blinking cursor


HI there.
Hit F12 - enter diagnostics - then run them
It should from memory run a test called 'DST' which stands for disk short test. If this passes OK your disk is 99% ok. If OK then (my guess is you have WinXP) boot the XP install disk and attemp to install Windows. If the installer detects a version of windows already on the disk it will ask you "if you wish to repair the copy already installed"
If it does hit yes - ( you wont lose your data however I hope you have backed up)
After it has finished your done.
Hope this helps you out.....Mark

Toshiba Satelite M100 PC notebook wont start up windows XP


This sounds like a memory problem. Download and run memtest 86, it is a small iso file that you create a bootable cd from. Run this for at least one pass.

If the memory passes boot from your xp disk and choose R to get into the repair console. Once there type the following commands

fixboot
fixmbr

then try the install again. Hope this helps

Wont boot up


Could it be the Boot Virus? I had the same issues. My co-worker was able to find the virus, which Norton could not. My PC is now running normal.
