Maybe the problem is on the monitor. it doesn't support the high resolution. use other monitor with high resolution or boot it on safe mode then reduce the settings on the display.

It seems that your OS has registry problem. There are only two ways to fix it:

1) Re-install your Windows with Re-partition your drives (In that case you have to take backup of your all data.)

2) Start PC in safe mode and download Reginout and run its all tools to fix your OS registry.

Lost everything on my laptop as soon as i open it

I dont think you lost everything. Do you see any green power lights and do you hear the normal hard drive and fan sounds when booting up ? If you do and still wont boot up to Windows then reboot and keep tapping on F8 to safe mode and select "last known good configuration". You can also perform system restore.

If you dont hear anything at all, no power and you dont see any green power lights then you may have to plug into another known good power outlet. check that your power connections (including the power adaptor) are secured and if on a strip power off and on. If that doesnt work, try another power adaptor. If those doesnt work
remove the laptop battery and just plug in the adapter.

If youre concern about your personal files you can always take out the hard drive, piggyback it to another hard drive on a known good PC and retrieve the files.

hi this is an odd problem. just keep the side off the computer start it up and listen in the side. you should be able to find where its coming from. if it is the power unit, i have never seen one yet that you cant open. sounds to me like the unit or cpu fan is clogged with dust n grime. you need to clean it out. let me know if this helps. you could also take everything out of the comp that doesnt have to be there, just leaving a cd-rom, floppy, hard drive and graphics card, then reboot......

Service engine soon engine light

it will eventually hurt something,when your car engine light comes on its a sensor telling the computer in your v ehicle somethings wrong and puts your computer in a closed loop ,which is a safety so lets say its the o2 sensor so your car doesnt run lean ,it goes into closed loop and will feed your car more gas,this is the best safety mode your cpu can do,which will cause other emmision sensors to fail and will cause damage the motor,take it to auto zone theyll check it for free,or pep boys and give you a print out for free including how much the part cost.dont forget to give a fix ya vote

Power ON/ nothing on screen-

enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.
