My FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PA 1538 screen comes black ? HELP


Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . .
Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ to download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD to burn to a CD. . . .See http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to download a copy of a Ubuntu (Linux) Live CD.

Bumped my Acer Aspire 5601AWLMi rather hard. Everything froze and after hard booting it will not come on.


Sounds like this is most likely a hard drive issue... You may have scratched your disks with the bump. When you boot up your computer, you should hear a beep - this is your POST (bios startup). If you hear this beep, but the computer does not boot any further, it is almost certainly a Hard drive issue. Some computers don't always play an audible 'beep' but if your computer shows the initial boot screen then goes black, or freezes up during the OS load, you can expect that you will need a new drive. If this is the case and you have experience in a fresh installation of an Operating System as well as experience in installing a hard disk drive into a laptop, then you can buy a new hard drive and DIY. If you do not have experience in these areas, I strongly suggest taking your computer to an expert to have it fixed.


If you don't hear the beep or the initial boot screen never displays, you may have a major issue with the motherboard itself. Either you have dislodged a necessary connection between components or you have broken a circuit. In this case, unless you are a seasoned hardware professional, I suggest bringing your computer to an expert to have it looked at.

Dell latitude d600 i hit f1 then nothing else happens the d600 just stays on window loading up page i can only get into safe mode nothing else what do i do


Hi,

If the problem lies on Windows this can be repaired. First, If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, we can try to launch startup repair from the advance boot options menu. You can access this through tapping F8 right after you turn the computer on. Tap F8 until you get to the advance boot options menu. Choose "Repair your Computer" and this should guide you on how to do the startup repair.

If you are using Windows XP, we need to try to boot to safe mode and see if you can boot the Operating System from there. To do this, it's the same drill, tap F8 repeatedly on your keyboard once you turn the computer on until you get to advance boot options menu. Choose safe mode and press enter. This should load the operating system to safe mode. If you are able to boot from here then that means one of your "drivers" has failed the OS to boot normally. If all of these fails, We can try to repair the Operating System by booting using your Restore CD or your Operating System CD from the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 (or whatever it is that makes you choose to boot to CD) while seeing the pc manufacturer's logo, this should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
For Windows XP, Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.

For Windows 7 and Vista, do the F8 and choose Repair your Computer, Choose the installation you want to repair then choose command prompt. Type CHKDSK /R and that shoudl initiate the repair for your OS. Most of the time, the "startup repair" should do the fix for Vista and 7, but just in case it fails, do this step.

BTW, these repairs are designed to repair the OS without you losing the data you have on the pc.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

When I turned on my PC this morning, I saw as the bios info screen loaded then the screen went black. Then when a new screen loaded, it flashed the screen, then went black again. Any idea what the problem...


Probably a problem with the OS itself. I would recommend putting in your OS cd (the one that came with the computer. And restart, select the option to repair OS (or says something to that effect). This may fix the problem. If it does not try another monitor, see if it is monitor specific (I dont think so, it sounds like it is an OS problem)

Trying to load packard bell ,its formated hard drive ,next screen i have c:\ what do i put to continue



The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.

Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.

After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.

Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.

One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.

The computer has to be booted from the disk.

Windows doesnt load up stays on this black screen


Most probably it is the problem with your hard drive's MBR (master boot record).

First try booting the system from bootable CD or DVD, if that succeeds that will be the sign that everything is ok with your machine but you have problem with your OS (operating system).

Try reformating the hard disk and resintalling Windows or doing system recovery from CDs provided from your vendor.

To get bootable CD with OS, easiest thing to do is to get one of the linux distributions that can be loaded from the CD.
Smallest and simplest is SLAX.

Burn it on CD and try booting your computer.


Good luck,
