Reboot your computer. Press F1 to access BIOS. Choose "Restore last known good configuration". If you are successful with this, ran a virus scan. A virus could have infected your HD and is causing this.

I cant reformat my ibm pentium 4 where can i find the advance bios i press all the functions but icant see the advance bios


Try the below steps and I hope it'll work for you.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
2) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
3) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
4) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
5) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
6) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

Pink lines running across screen


Sounds like your lcd screen is bad and needs to be replaced. Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the lines, then your video card inside the computer is good but your lcd screen is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same lines as your lcd screen then your video card inside the computer is bad.

It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the video shows on the external monitor that proves your video card is ok, ,but your lcd screen is bad. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

My Toshiba M55 Laptop has a vertical 'ribbon' of flickering. Is it fixable?


Maybe your screen is going bad or the video card inside the computer is going bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the vertical ribbon then your lcd screen is bad and your video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same vertical ribbon as your lcd screen then your video card inside the computer has an issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Toshiba lap top half screen rainbow lines


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Vertical lines on lcd d520


Time to replace your LCD Screen. To verify that it is the lcd screen on the laptop, borrow a Monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and plug it into the laptop.

It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Top half of my monitor screen shows at the bottom


Try plugging an external monitor to your laptop and see how it displays on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old fat crt's as long as it has a vga cable that will connect to your laptops vga port.

If the display does not immediately show up, then you will have to hit the FN (Function key)+(F1 thru F12) to show the image. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have either CRT/LCD written on it or it will have a display icon on it.

If the image displays correctly on your external monitor, then you will need to replace your lcd screen.

Look for the boot order options in the setup or pay attention at the actual startup of the laptop when the IBM logo is being displayed. You will notice a message on the screen indicating which button to press to select the "boot order" or "boot options". Press the button (ussually one of the F1 - F12 keys) and you will be presented with a choice of which device to use to boot from.
