Computer won't start

Actually it does, then goes no further. My daughter was playing on the computer last night. We had a storm, and she didn't get off of the computer before the power went out. The computer started this morning, but goes to the "safe mode or start windows normally" options. The safe mode loads to the same point every time and stops. The windows mode starts with the logo on the screen, but just keeps acting like it's loading with the moving light at the bottom. Loading the last known good start doesn't work either. Is that motherboard or hard-drive or something else? Thinking that it was a HD issue, went to the recovery disk I received, and it stops at the point of looking at the HD. It does see the size of the drive, but goes no further. Motherboard lights are on, .....

    The computer is/was running XP. If I understand the reply, you are saying that the HD may be damaged due to trying to access the information on it during the power outage, is that correct? I tried using the recovery disk that I received from the computer company. It loads windows, the drivers, and stops when it starts examining the HD. How long should that take?

This is a complicated fix to diagnose over emails but first, the hd had been hit the power outage while accessing the hd can damage it. so I recommend reloading windows fresh if it cannot then you may have damaged the cd rom /dvd drive.
what version of windows are you running?

My LG LCD 32LD350 seemed to have been fried in a storm last night, stanby red light no longer lit and won't turn on, still see some green lighting inside televison, but it won't turn on, Is it


Is it repairable, well, this question can be answered only after opening the back cover and evaluating the damage. From you side, please connect the TV to a different power outlet where other similar devices are working and see. Then try changing the input device to something that sure works. If it does not work even then, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

More than likely your power supply got fried from a power surge during that storm anyway. You'd be surprised at how worthless most surge suppressors are these days.

Computer power won't turn on


First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.

Power outage last night. Deleted all saved voicemail messages. when turned on - machine says "no massages" How do I retrieve lost messages?


I'm sorry there isn't. Answering machines like this have very little ROM memory. After a powersurge and outage like last night, it wiped the whole memory chip. You can try there support page. It's actually pretty good. http://telephones.att.com/telephones_ui/support/index.cfm
