PACKARD BELL LJ71 WON'T START UP


can you be more specific as to the actual text? Also you should press F2 or whatever key is your bios hotkey and check your boot order. Make sure that the hard drive is your first boot device. it actually kind of sounds like you have a cd in the drive and it's trying to boot from it. please physically verify that there are no discs in the drive.

HP Mini 1000 VT won't turn on, lights flash when plugged in


Hello,

This is a common issue when the unit has been dropped or jarred really hard. The click is more than likely the hard drive trying to read the disk but can not access information.

With that in mind, try this: Remove all USB, SD, or any cards and attachment from you computer. If you have one at hand, connect an external monitor to the pc. Power on. If you get an image on the external monitor, restart pc and press F8, select "Enabel-low-resolution video" and move forward. If you get a picture after this, your video drivers need updating. BUT......

The clicking sound is a major concern because usually the hard drive is the only hardware part that have moving parts. (other than the optical drive or if you have a solid state hard drive.) If you have a dard drive the same size or close with an operating system on it, replace your hard drive with the GOOD drive and retry. If it boots, you need to replace the hard drive. (and hopefully you have a backup of your data)

Worst case, you may need an authorized HP agent to service your pc.

Good Luck

It sounds like you have corrupted files in windows, or you have a problem with the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and re-seat it back in place, start up the computer! If no change, use the original recovery disc if you have one and reload the operational system, if that fails have the hard drive tested for bad sectors at the computer repair store.

My Laptop Wont Even Boot Up


If you can here a slight clattering sound, like two discs bing clashed together the hard drive platelettes are damaged or the parking head is damaged, you will need to replace the hard drive, they are fairly inexpensive to buy, but if you are not familiar with laptops take to a qualified repairer.
