Hi,
What you,ll need is a system restore CD.
Usually supplied with the Computer/Laptop.
Your only other option, is to enter the systems BIOS Setup if possible, and instruct the the computer, to first boot cd/dvd rom drive, with your windows or operating system cd in, and carry out a new installation. this could be a missing file/driver issue. or failed RAM ( Memory ) Which can only be determined by listening for Beeps at system startup.

M15x gaming laptop screen wont come on after sleep mode or reboot. What can I do?


Looking at your last comment, it looks like you got it working??? Just an heads up, in the future, you might not want to put your laptop into sleep/standy mode while performing an update. If you lose power or have to do a hard shutdown you could corrupt the update and your PC might not boot back up.

Not instal kespersky antivirus,now how to instal that


Sounds like you're having troubles installing Kaspersky Antivirus (KAV). You will need to uninstall any existing security software before installing KAV. Restart the computer. I recommend downloading the latest version from http://www.kaspersky.com/kav_latest_versions. After downloading the installer, run the application. It will ask you for a product key to activate the software, so you will need to have/purchase that.

Cannot start up my laptop since in done an update


Try booting into "Last known good configuration" it is on the same screen as Safe Mode, if that does not work, you can try to run CHKDSK /r from the windows install CD, just choose "Repair" in the option, if this does not work I suggest removing that hard drive and slaving it into another computer to get your data off and then reload Windows onto it. It is missing a .dll

Hard disk wont start


probably hardrive is defective. However you can enter the BIOS and revert the settings to default and test again. Also perform full power cycle. If issue persists I recommend you to replace/service your HDD.

Good Luck
