"system failed cpu pact"

as a voice message and it is looped. The computer does not boot. It happens about 10 secs from power up. and that is as far as it gets.

Screen blank not booting

If you do not hear any beeps or any hard drive activity (hold ear to case should rattle hum etc) you have either a cpu or ram problem. If it ran hot before shutting down when it works you may have burned out your cpu. If you bumped or dropped it or it overheated you maybe have a ram problem either bad ram or not seated right. If it is just dead it is possible you blew the fuses on the motherboard.

Unless you have the ability or desire to swap out the cpu and ram you need to take it to the shop or be prepared to replace it.

My laptop will not load up it is charging and the power light is on but there is just a blank scrren please help my i just bought it

Can you hear it doing various thinks, ie the hard drive light activity, whilst the screen is blank?
I am thinking that the button the change the screen to the TV or scart socket has bee pressed which means you can choose between the laptop screen and tv screen or an external monitor.

Usually actived unsing combine "function" and "CRT/LCD" buttons (or similar names).
