You can try with Free Boot Managers and Multi-Boot Loaders you can find lot of free stuff available in online. So download and follow the instructions.
OSL2000 is an advanced multi boot manager you can install multiple OS in a Single PC.
That is booting directly into XP. The Windows XP logo that you stare at for a few minutes is actually hiding a whole lot of back end system checks. Without the logo you would be looking at a blank screen. There is a difference in load time, but it's about 2 seconds.
After hitting the power button on your computer, throw it into "BOOT MODE" and select your hard drive. See if this helps your computer load. If so, you will have to go into your BIOS Setup and make your current hard drive your Primary Boot Device.
If this doesn't help, load your restore disc and check your drive for errors.
Your problem shouldn't be anything more than a few registry errors OR a boot problem.
Ok try this, at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.
Basically a friend showed the power 4 extreme option by right clicking on the battery icon at the bottem right of the screen and then setting in the quiet office section to say no to hide desktop icons. Now its no longer a problem!
Use your installation CD for Windows that came with your computer, and boot to the CD. (Usually, pressing the F12 key will offer your boot options such as "Boot to CD.")
Once booted on to the CD, it will offer you several options - Do NOT reinstall Windows - you want to choose the Repair Option.
the repair stuff has loaded (You may have to select which volume you
wish to work on, if so just pick the number that is next to your C
drive.) and you are at the prompt that looks like "C:>" you will
want to type in the following, without the quotation marks.
"chkdsk c: /r"
It will take a while for it to work all its magic, but that should fix your problem!
When it is finished, you can simply push the power button on your computer to turn it off. When you next turn it on, it should be happier.
tricky!! oh hi im Dyanne.. a totally unresponsive black screen can be th result of failure of th LCD or LCD inverter.( a specialized piece of electronics that energize th screen) to rule out th failure of th video display adapter or circuitry, try plugging in an external monitor..a standard pc monitor.. attached direct to th lappy. if it works, (as i susopect) th motherboard and video display are both working ok and its th LCD which is at fault. this can sometimes be repaired by a competent specialist. good luck xx
Try shutting the G4 completely down, waiting about 15 seconds, and then booting the Mac with the shift key down. That should clean up a lot, as it gives a safe boot. Then go to disc utilities and repair permissions. That might clean the whole thing up for you. If sounds like it's a Finder problem. If that doesn't work, boot from Disc Warrior or Tech Tools and run a few tests. Good luck!
You can press F8 repeatedly while booting to get the Boot options screen. It should contain a VGA Mode - this will boot your regular desktop with a lower resolution. Once in windows adjust the screen resolution to one that your Monitor supports.
Right click the desktop anywhere. Choose properties. Go to the right most tab "settings". Slide the screen resolution option until its where you want it. Click Apply. Do Not Hit any keys on the keyboard. Wait until it finishes changing resolution than click Ok. Close the Window.
If your screen goes black during this waiting 30 seconds should automatically revert it to the previous settings.
