Alienware M14x stuck on windows starting scren, the video card driver seems to have been disabled


Try going in to Safe mode. This loads the basic drivers and if you have a problem with hardware, it will still open up Windows.
Turn on computer and immediately press F8.
Any hardware issues will show up in device manager.

Alienware Area-51 Desktop won't boot up long beep


The fan to the left of your RAM slots needs to spin, it may be the reason for your problem. If this is the CPU fan then you may have a dead CPU.

Contact a computer technician for repair or claim warranty support.

Take care!

Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

My computer starts up the fans spin the hard drive starts up but the screen says no signal and the cd drive sounds as though it is continuosly restarting


Sounds like the harddrive is screwed... It's reading the CD-Rom drive because it's most likely next in the boot sequence :)

If it is a Laptop then harddrives are a easy fix and being it's Cyber Weekend/Monday you can find harddrives realllly cheap

Alienware Aurora Desktop does not boot, has no HD activity


If the activity light on the front of the tower is not glowing than it can be an issue with the power supply of the PC. Try to open the tower and try to reseat the Power supply cables and check.
You can also try to Reseat the RAM (memory) sticks. If you have 2 Memory stick you can just try to boot the pc with the help of one stick and vice versa. If still the issue persist you can try to do a test on the Motherboard. Simply take out the Memory cards and power on the pc . if you hear a beeping noise than the Motherboard is fine and if you dont hear a beeping noise that it is a faulty Motherboard.

Acer aspire 5534 laptop won't boot up. Says insert a bootable disk. Also says missing cable. Just started acting weird with no warning.


Go to boot menu by pressing Boot option key while Laptop booting up and then check the the Harddrive status. If harddrive is not listing anywhere in bootmenu, unplug and plug the Harddrive again. If it will still not work, replace the Harddrive and reinstall the OS.

Laptop can acess harddrive


Sounds like a BIOS password to me...

No hacks, or tricks will work with software, as the BIOS is specifically preventing you from booting ANYTHING.

Some laptops feature RESET buttons on the underside, or hidden under the battery to resolve this issue, but more than likely, the laptop must be opened up and have the CMOS battery removed temporarily to wipe the password.
