This definitely sounds like a hardware problem. The problem sounds like it could very well be your video card or the inverter card. Both are difficult to get to and should be checked by a professional, especially if you're not familiar with disassembling a laptop. If your computer has a switch monitor build in and you can hook up the monitor before turning on the computer then press that button (it would be up with other proprietary function buttons toward the top) if you have this button and still nothing happens, then you can rule out the video section. Otherwise this could be a video problem, which would be cheaper than buying a whole new motherboard, so please check this option first. Again be extra careful if you attempt this yourself (again NOT RECOMMENDED) be especially careful with the tiny ribbon cables. If you get this in the hands of someone professional they may be able to save you some money by at least checking the video solutions, otherwise if you go with a new mother board or try and fail to fix the video yourself you'll be spending more than you bargained for...

Toshiba laptop wont boot correctly. Upon start up it flashes blue screen. Does not recognize optical drive to try to fix windows 8 or reinstall windows 8.1.


Sounds like the hard drive has an issue. Do you hear a very faint clicking sound when it tries to boot up? put your ear near the front of the laptop, bottom of keyboard area and listen for a clicking sound. if you hear a click click click click sound repeating continuously, its a failing hard drive. If you hear ths sound, you will need to buy a replacement hard drive. Replacing it is easy. Turn your laptop upside down and look for the small door that houses your hd. Unscrew the door and take hard drive out. Now you take this hard drive to Staples and ask them for a replacement. Once you know what you need, whether Sata or IDE hard drive, you can buy a replacement cheaply on eBay or buy it from any computer store. pop the hard drive back in and then you should be able to install a new operating system on the laptop. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then you may have a corrupted windows boot. Have you tried booting in safe mode? as you turn the power on, hold down the f8 button. You will get a screen asking if you want to boot in safe mode. Select, safe mode with networking. If it boots normally in safe mode, you can then put in your windows cd and do a repair. If you cannot boot into safe mode, and you have tried replacing hard drive, but cd/dvd is still not working, then you may need o take it in or diagnostics. You can buy very cheaply on eBay, a connector that will allow you to connect your hard drive to another computer via USB. This will allow you to test the hard drive and also possibly get data of of it, provided the hard drive is not too badly damaged. I hope this helps.. Please ask any questions you might have.

My daughter's ACER inspire one gives the following message and makes a beeping sound "Check Cable connection! PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE Rom No bootable device---insert boot disk and press any key


There is a loose connection between the hard drive and motherboard of the computer, that's why you are getting that message. You most likely need to take it to a computer repair shop so they can fix it.

My asus eee pc 1000h fell & lcd cracked. it lights up fine. how can i make sure that is the only issue thus making investing in replacement lcd worth it


Was it on when it fell?

If YES, then the area I would be most concerned with is the hard drive.

You can scan the drive with this program, download the demo version of course ;)

Sometimes the unit will not power up right away. the lights will be on and you will hear the drive spin and stop, then blank screen. have to remove and replace battery several times b/f it will come back...


Power problem with-in the motherboard, the spinning sound is not hard drive, it is the processor fan that spin in boot-up then stops. You have faulty motherboard chips. required to bring it to repair shop for preventive/repair.

Gateway computer won't boot up and gives an error message pxe-mofIt also makes a clicking sound when trying to boot up


Sounds like you have lost the partition containing your boot.ini file. The clicking sound you are hearing could be a mechanical clue that the read/write head is slapping back and forth and not reading the drive. This type of failure is unrecoverable and is a total loss except for a data recovery company, they would remove the platters and manually retrieve the data.

My pavilion s3100n when turned on just makes this clicking sound and the screen says "failed to boot replace disk and press enter" any clues


The clicking sound is most likely the "Click of Death" an indicator of a failed hard disk drive. The drive is having a hardware malfunction and the read/write armature in the drive is moving back and forth against the internal stops (this gives the click)
Replace the hard drive in the system

Computer wont boot


Try disambling the system. Clean it with a wind blower. Check BIOS battery capacity. Replace if possible. Power on the laptop. Do you hear humming sound from hard disk ? If you hear sssssssshhhhh sound from hard disk; it's OK. Replace RAM with new one. If problem still exists Than change main board. Hope that not happen. Keep informing.

Laptop won't power up


Have you tried to start in safe mode? (hold the f8 key while booting). This will allow you to go back to a boot sequence that worked. You will need to go to start and select restore. Could be under accessories

Sudden Hard Drive stop


Your hard drive may be intermittenly faulty, any abnormal sounds from a hard drive is not good. I would connect your hard drive to an USB adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port and do a Disk cleanup and defrag, if possible run disk diagnostic program on the hard drive. If the hard drive proved OK then you may have a faulty IDE controller or faulty IDE cable, check the BIOS battery voltage, may need a new one.
