Make sure your iPod is not connected to your pc when restart it. Unplug everything that does not have to be plugged in.
Try tapping the F8 key when re-booting the pc to get to the boot menu and try loading the last configuration that worked.

    Windows XP is the Operating System.
    Try this:
    Reboot with the recovery CD.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to
    start the Recovery Console.
    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If
    the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    At the command prompt, type: fixmbr and press ENTER.

    Hit Y for yes when asked if you are sure you want to proceed.
    Type: fixboot and press ENTER.
    Hit Y for yes when asked if you are sure you want to proceed.
    Restart the computer.

Lenovo g550 laptop with an external monitor would only display of broken original screen after crash dump


Firstly you need to get your external monitor working. Have you tried pressing FN+F3 while turned on, (may take several presses).

If you can get the external monitor working then you'll need to run windows in safe mode and try removing any new drivers you installed. or try a 'Last Known good' on start up this depends on the OS version.

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hello,

Your computer's operating system just crashes down. What you can do is to do a start up repair. You need the operating system discs which came with your computer during the time when you bought it. It says windows 7 installation/operating system.

Here's what you need to do.

1. Insert the windows 7 operating system disc in the dvd drive.
2. Restart the computer. It will bring you to a page which will ask you to press any key. Just press any key to boot to the installation cd.
3. A blue screen will appear and it will bring you to the page which has the option to install or to repair. Select repair.
4. Then follow the on-screen instructions and finish the process until it restarts.
5. If it does not fix the problem, you have to do a complete/clean reinstallation.

I am providing you a full tutorial on how to do it. Click on the link below so that you will be directed to the link.

boot into Windows' Safe Mode; press F8 before the Windows loading screen appears to get this option.

Once signed in, you'll be prompted to a) continue in Safe Mode, or b) Restore a previous install point.

Choose option b) and then follow the instructions. If the same problem (black screen after Windows has started up) persists once you've rebooted, sign in with Safe Mode again and restore to an earlier install point.

change the Automatic Update to notify before installing.

My Compaq Presario V2000 will not start.


Ok, this makes sense. If this was a legit dvd, then it most likely had extra content on it (like wallpaper, sounds, etc) that installed something that crashed a driver.  If it wasn't legit, then the "player" that was used to play the movie installed something that crashed a driver.
If you can. I would reinstall some drivers to start.  Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" option?
Then if reinstalling drivers doesn't work, I would just restore the Windows OS.  But remember to BACKUP YOUR FILES.....once you restore it will be erased.
That compaq is a good machine unless you really want another PC this is fixable.

Notebook System Crash


Hey there SeanJohn79, have you tried hooking an external monitor to your laptop. You can move the video output back and forth, from external, LCD + external, LCD using Fn + F7. Hopefully this will allow you to see the necessary info for diagnosing the problem. Good Luck. Keep us posted! In case you are not aware, these are some display related key functions:
Fn + F3 = turn off lcd
Fn + F8 =Switch computer screen size
Fn + F12 =Hibernation mode, power for 4 secs releases.
Fn + F4 = Standby mode, press Fn key to return to normal
If you haven't tried switching some of these, give it a shot.
