Try removing the battery and starting up only on AC power. You may have a faulty battery. It could also be the power supply or a bad memory chip. If it's none of these, then it's a motherboard problem.

This morning i got a update for windows.. well!! i updated it and then a error screen came on.. i tried to reboot the note book but its stuck in windows boot manager screen.. my lap top wont shut down.....


Boot into safe mode then go to system restore and restore it to before the update or go to control panel and uninstall the update.

To boot into safe mode:
Right after bios loads up and before windows starts loading start hitting the F8 key
Choose safe mode with or without networking doesn't matter

Try going to your main menu and set it to set to factory defaults. This may solve your problem.

Abs light stays on


I had this exact same problem, on a older bronco II. You need to get the ABS computer reset. You can either take it in or buy a computer your self. There are even packages that will allow you to use your own computer and just hook the car up to your lap top or desk top if you can get a cable long enough.

I never had mine done, because back then the computers were so expensive. I never caused a problem because it was only in the braking system. Now they are pretty cheap and there are a lot of other cool things you can do with them. You can reduce your gas requirements and set it for pulling, racing, and fuel efficency on the fly now. Just at the touch of a button.

Lap top wont boot up


Go to the BIOS menu and select the Main Tab... see if the computer sees your drive. If not send it to the manufacturer or look to see if you can get to the HD without cracking open the main case to the laptop
if you can... check the connection from the HD to the connectors to the motherboard
