ECS A350 WON'T BOOT

My notebook only show the bios screen. It will just stop there without showing any attempt to load windows. I tried to book it from cdrom but still it stopped in the bios screen.

It was able to pass the system self test but won't load the OS. It won't even give me an error message like non system disk.

Any suggestions on how i can access the harddrive and format it somehow?

Pro-book 4520 won't boot. I switched on this morning. The windows (7) logo appeared, then blue/black screen and cursor only. Would not boot up. Ran diagnostics which said all OK. Still won'


The windows files are corrupted or the hard drive has issues, load cd installation disc if available, if that fails have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

Dell latitude e4200 restarts with blue screen


Sounds like the image doesn't have the right drive controller driver included. Could be because the image was created on a different laptop or could be the drive controller is configured differently. You can confirm this from the STOP error code on the blue screen

Go into the BIOS setup (probably F2 at boot) and see if the controller mode is set to AHCI. If so, set it to compatibility or combined(?) and try again.

Either way, if you've installed an image for the wrong hardware, you probably should do a remedial install. Boot from your Windows XP disc and follow the prompts as if you were doing a clean install until you get to the license agreement. At the next screen, it should show you any existing Windows installs and give you a new option to repair. Let this go - it won't touch any user files, just replace all the Windows files with those from the CD. Have your system drivers and service packs handy to tidy up when it's done.

Will not boot up


Is your laptop switching on? Does it show the BIOS sequence at the beginning? When the Hard drive of your Laptop stops working it won't boot up. Sometimes virus also cause this problem or your bios needs resetting. Now if you decide to fix this you have to go through a number of steps to make sure what the problem is. when your Notebook loads up it shows you a number of operations that you can take like F2 or F8 or Del to enter into you Bios set up or OS start up choice. Now when you press dell you will go to the BIOS set up screen. Which will show you if your HDD is being recognized and also it's size. If all this shows well then your Hard drive is ok. So you go on to check if the operating system shows. If all is well then you might have to reload your Operating system.

I Turn on my computer and it boots up normally until I get to my main screen. It shows my wallpaper but nothing else. My start menu and everything is not there. I tried to boot in safemode and the F8 key...


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or you might try
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

once you have your computer running
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recover bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

hope this helps good luck

My Acer Ferrari 1005 WTMi went blank and just showing a blinking hyphen on the left top part of the screen........I was trying to install a fresh windows 7 ultimate from windows vista ultimate. After it...


Try starting from the windows cd. Basically you want to make sure you haven't lost the Video totally. Boot the machine but go into BIOS setup before windows loads. If you can see you BIOS settings make sure the machine meets the requirements of Windows 7 as each time windows updates the system requirements increase. If it does meet these try loading Windows 7 again but choose a lower video setting or use the generic video driver.

BLUE SCREEN STOP ERROR AND NO HARD DRIVE SHOWING


Sorry, but there's no real way to troubleshoot this without actually having the device. The problem you describe could be anything from a simple corrupted system32 driver or MBR (master boot record), to a hardware failure. The simplest thing you could try is to boot from your OS installation CD/DVD, reinstall the OS, and re-install your applications. Next would be to re-format the boot drive and restore your data from your most recent backup. Sorry I don't have better news for you.

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

Note book freezing after fan change


This is just an easy problem... what you'll have to do is follow this steps

Step 1: If you have manual of your computer it is better.. restart your notebook, press and hold the key to boot in BIOS setup... try pressing this key F1, F2, Delete or F8, because some laptop and notebooks have different method of going to BIOS.. you will know if it is BIOS Configuration because it has a BIOS Settings at the Title of the screen.. now go to Power Management or Power Monitoring.. you can find the Fan option there.. because you change the fan of your notebook, it detects that the Fan that you installed is not standard with the note book.. go to step 2.

Step 2: Now when you find the fan option try to set to ignore the fan RPM and The Voltage that is uses... if there is... then save your settings by pressing F10 key and wait for the notebook to start normally.. if the notebook won't start normally, then go to step 3.

Step 3: In this step you'll have to Start in Safe Mode.Restart your notebook, while booting press the F8 key then a boot menu will show in your screen.. if there is drive selection, choose the hard disk drive.. if none then proceed in selecting the Safe Mode menu.. wait until its done booting your windows in safe mode.. after have complete run in safe mode.. properly restart your notebook by going to Start>Turn Off Computer> Restart, and it will boot in windows normally...

Hope I Can Help
