Question about MSI PC Laptops

1 Answer

Screen is off

Hi,
I bought MSI Megabook (Windows Vista Home Premium) two weeks ago, yesterday it froze (I do not know why) and I was not able to switch it off, so I waited till the battery was flat. Then I wanted to start the computer again, however the screen is black, the computer seems to be running. Shall I return it or is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance.

With the machine only being two weeks old, I would RUN not walk back to the store for an exchange. This is a hardware malfunction or failure, and there is no way that the machine should have done this in such a short amount of time. Just tell them that the machine froze, you shut it down by holding the power button down (there was no other way), and now it won't boot. Don't tell them that you left it until the battery ran out, a sudden shut down due to a dead battery can cause damage, and they may give you a warranty run around for that. If they give you any type of run around, demand a manager, then demand he/she give you an exchange. Don't take the run around and don't be afraid to get loud. Managers back down quick to a loud irate customer, they don't like other customers to think badly of their store. NOTE: If a machine ever freezes, and they will, you should shut it down by holding the power button down. It takes a few seconds, but the power button will override the system and shut the machine down. Most freeze ups are just due to software glitches and will start right back up, but in your case it's hardware, since the machine will not start up at all.

Unfortunately, you have to have/purchase a product key for each copy of the Windows OS, in this case Vista. The XP key will not work. And the key has to be for that particular version ie: Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Go to
http://driverscollection.com/?H=MEGABOOK%20M510C&By=MSI%20(Microstar)
and after selecting your Windows, download the drivers for your notebook.
Alternatively, clean the CD in + way. Means, up-down and right-left way and not circular we mostly do. Clean it with a soft cloth.

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...


The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

If you don't know the password or have a password reset disk then you will need to restore the operating system with the restore CD that came with the computer.
