Can you give additional information? the purple screen could also be the dreade BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. do get to see any error message or stop code? can you try to boot using LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION? by pressing F8 when your computer starts and in the advance boot menu select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.
normally vista will repair itself when you restart it. was vista able to repair the OS?
Blue screen can be caused by several factors it could be both hardware and software. for software it could be caused by any new software/program installed or updates installed. for hardware it could be from your hard drive to memory depending on the error message. but at this point we shall presume it to be caused by a software and could have corrupted your vista file or hive of our vista.
first option is if you can still go tosafe mode try to do a system restore click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a highlighted date on the calendar to the left when your computer works well and restore your computer to that date
if you are still having problem get your vista cd ready we may need to fix some files in your computer
boot to cd with your vista inside your cd rom drive. let your windows load up and when you get to see the window welcome setup screen choose repair then type chkdsk /r
still lots to be done but for now let us assume one of the fixes is within this reply

Dx2200 stops booting up. then shows a purple and yellow dotted screen !!! why ?


If your screen shows a clear picture to start with then it is most likely the video card driver. I don't know what you mean by no access to safe mode, but if you can get into safe mode you should be able to uninstall the video driver and restart. Safe mode is usually accessed by hitting F8 before windows starts so as soon as you see a picture on the screen start hitting F8 a few times until you get to the safe mode selection menu.

How to fix code purple error


for windows XP:
- Get into C:\hp\bin\CheckConfig\cfgchk.bat
- Rename the file "run.py" to "run.p_" or just delete it. (That's the file that verify the hardware configuration for the OEM version)
- Then reboot!
for vista:
- Get into C:\hp\bin\CheckDMI folder
- Rename the file "CheckDMI.cmd" to "CheckDMI"
or
- Edit the file and change the "0" (zero) value (there is only one in the whole file) for "1" value...which means that the hardware configuration respect the terms of the OEM contract.
- Then reboot!

My monitor is showing things way to big to fit on the screen How do I fix this ? just rebooted today


right click anywhere on your screen/properties/display for vista and settings for xp. then increase your resolution from whatever it is right now, i.e. 680 by 840 to any thing higher. that will do it.

Vista Black Screen after Startup.


Try booting into SAFE MODE, usually by pressing F5 or F8 just after turning the power on. This should give you a display. Once you can see your desktop right chick on a blank area of the desktop, select PERSONALISE, then DISPLAY SETTINGS to reduce the screen resolution. Then reboot and try again in NORMAL Startup

Laptop stuck on screen "Windows is resuming"


First determine if windows is really hung.

Restart the laptop and keep pressing the F8 function key. You will get a menu. Try the safe mode option by selecting it with arrow keys and pressing enter. Click on Yes when it asks the question.

If Windows runs okay in safe mode, reboot and try starting normally without pressing any keys). If again it won't start, then go back to safe mode and when asked the Yes/No question, reply with a No and it will ask you to do a system restore. Just select a recent restore point say one or 2 days ago or the most recent and select restore. It will take some time and reboot the system. Now everything should be hopefully okay.

Acer Aspire 5920G startup issues


If unit is not booting you cannot use the system restore tool. And if you have not created back up disks .................

At least you did not have the machine long enough to really load it up so reloading it will not be so bad. However, ......

Maybe you picked up some computer clap? Using another machine download the malware bytes program onto a usb stick and then boot up your vista machine via the F 8 prompt (desktop + networking) during bootup.

Then when on simple desktop, insert usb stick and navigate to the file downloaded and run the app from there. Good luck!!!
