Ok try this, at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.

Presario laptop screen turns black after bootin git up...


Try using a light on the laptop and check if the images are clearer.

Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at boot up.

If the same happens there as well then you will have to change the backlight of the display.

It is recommended for you not to open up the display to change the display light as you may run into damaging the LCD itself.

Best would be to contact the manufacturer so that they can get the right part replaced with a similar one.

Screen suddenly blank on FujitsuSiemens AmiloProFB21


I am thinking that the Video Resolution went off, so you have to try entering Safe Mode by pressing F8 until you get a menu in black and white...

Then, select Safe Mode. That would reset your video resolution.

Then, reboot the system and let it boot normal. See if it is fixed.

Sanyo Projector==No signal


Hi, Perhaps you can try lowering the screen resolution first of the laptop before plugging in the projector and then the Fn + F8. Thereafter, gradually increase the screen resolution until projector stops displaying. The idea is that your current screen resolution maybe too much for the projector to handle. This of course is assuming that there is no hardware problem with the projector. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
