HP Netbook mini 110, Bought new battery but it will not reboot properly after installed


sounds like it is powered up if it is continually restarting. Does it work with the AC power adapter plugged in? At any rate the constant restart is indicative of a failing power supply (not meaning the battery but the power converter that is inside notebook). After the BIOS the PC goes to the hard drive for the boot cycle at which point there is an increase in power demand which can cause a weak power supply (not the battery) to shutdown and restart, hence the restarting cycle. How do you tell him to fix the problem?? well that depends but I don't believe that there is a conversational repair at this point.

My iphone shows only white screen when i try to power up


hi,
try this solution...
1. Put phone into Recovery mode (NOT DFU)

While the phone is off, hold down the Home button and immediatly plug it into your computer. Or else.
2. From a command prompt (Start>Run>"cmd"), change to the directory where you extracted irecovery, and enter irecovery -s followed by:
1. setenv boot-args 2
2. setenv auto-boot false
3. saveenv
4. /exit

Keep this window open for use later on!
3. Run greenpois0n - it will guide you to enter DFU mode, then it will stop on a white screen after you click "Jailbreak".

It should say "Jailbreak Complete!" and NOT "Jailbreak Failed!" next to the progressbar at the bottom.
4. Extract the iBSS from your custom PwnageTool image (firmware.ispw/Firmware /dfu/iBSS.BoardID.RELEASE.dfu) into your irecovery folder.

You can use WinRAR or another ZIP extractor to do this. IPSW files are really just ZIP files!
5. At a command prompt: irecovery -f iBSS

iBSS should be replaced with the name of the iBSS that you just extracted from the pwnagetool image - ie iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu
6. At a command prompt: irecovery -s
1. setenv boot-args 0
2. saveenv
3. go image decrypt 0x41000000
4. go jump 0x41000040
5. /exit

At the "go jump" point your device should appear to reboot. Whether it goes back to a white screen or shows the Connect to iTunes screen depends on the firmware image used.
7. Restore your PwnageTool cooked or CFW firmware from iTunes.

Please help! First power on, when boot up, my Dell 5150 goes directly to "Start Windows Normally" screen selection. Sometimes when boot up, screen goes to a blue with "A problem has been detected and...


Main cause of the problem is a corrupted operating system which can be cause by a virus or a defective hard disk or a defective memory module. First to try is to replace your memory with a certified good one. If the problem persists, Try to reinstall you windows using your CDRom. If there still the problem, replace hard disk.

Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.

Regards
Vineeth K.

No good computer stuck no good i say


While the pc is powered on, load the windows cd into the cd rom and restart the pc by pressing the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys, when the pc reboots you should see a black screen with white letters asking you to press any key to boot from the cd.

Carefully following the options install Windows and then to repair the operating system. NOT the repair console option.

If you are not asked to do a repair then stop as this solution wont work and you will likely need to reinstall Windows.

At this point windows should repair any damage files and reboot. Following the reboot, do not press any key, instead wait for Windows to boot normally, you can remove the cd after Windows boots.
