When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.
If all diagnostic lights are on, then that means that it has something with the software of your computer. The update has affected some of the programs inside your computer thus it's booting up fine.
I suggest that you access safe mode and do a system restore from there. If you don't know how to access safe mode, then follow these:
1. Turn off your computer. 2. turn it on and keep tapping F8 until you see the options. You should see safe mode. 3. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode, then press enter. 4. Your computer should boot up to safe mode. 5. Access the system restore. You can find it in accessories, system tools, system restore. or you can search. 6. restore your computer to the known good date where your computer was still working fine. 7. After completing the on screen procedures, let your computer restart by itself (it may take minutes or more). It will restart and it should boot to the normal windows.
Could be the HDD or even just the boot sector itself. Basically, it's not able to read the Operating System Boot...or it got damaged somehow. If you have a disc for the exact version that is on the system, you may be able to fix it through the Advanced Options using the command prompt. (bootrec.exe /fixboot /fixmbr /scanos /rebuildbcd)
When you mention boots, Is the computer able to POST a message to the screen or do you mean switching the computer on and there nothing POST to the screen. If your computer is able to post and then you get a black screen after that with possibly a flashing underscore symbol, then you are missing a O.s or your harddrive is currupted. If nothing is POST to the screen once the computer is turned on, then there could be couple of culprit that is causing this defect to RAM memory error, VGA, CPU, or the Motherboard itself..... The only way to test what is actually wrong is to have other hardware compatiable to test the computer itself.... would reccommend you taking it in to a computer shop since they have diagnositc tools, unless you have other computer hardware to test this with.
The drive you installed is formatted (wiped clean). It has no operating system to boot from... tthat's the NTLDR error.Power off the machine with the Win98 CD in the CD drive. Power up the machine and while the machine is POSTing (starting up showing you what's in it) watch for something saying to hit any key to boot from CD and at that point press any key . The machine should then boot from the Win98 CD and start the install
if nothing else is affected and everything runs fine after this then i would be careful on what you install because this could become a serious issue this happens because the computer notices an error on startup then either fixes itself or ignores the problem write back if the problem worsens
Turn it on, then wait, u will hear the computer turning itself on and off, but nothing is showing on the screen. so make it turn on and off, 3 time.( such as hearing the computer turned off, so that one,THEN IT TURNS ITSELF ON AGAIN, next time it turns off, that count as 2, and so on). on the third shut off then u press and hold the off button, to force it to shut down, then wait. about 5-10min., or less then 5. after then u turn the computer on.it should be on by now. if not try it again. if it happens again try one more time, if it happens again. then there something really wrong with your computer.
u unplugged everything and it booted up finely.
its mean that there is something wrong with the drviers.
check it one by one. just plug hard driver first and let is boot. if its still behaving the same as after plugging all then the problem is caused by the hard drive.
plug your phone to the pc your phone should then boot up with the usb connection menu then select 'Phone Mode' and your phone should logon as normal. you will then receive a message saying phone in connection with pc or something. good luck!
