Hi,
If the problem was caused just because of the video driver. The following steps should fix the same.
1. Power On
2. At the dell Logo screen tap the F8 key slowly 5 times
3. Select the option Safe mode and hit enter
4. Click Administrator to enter or your user name
5. Left click start
> Right click My computer
>Left click properties
>Left click hardware tab
>left click device manager
> Left click the plus sign next to Display adpaters
> Right click on the display adpater and click unintsall , and restart your computer

If the system is not going to the safe mode , there is more to your problem than just the driver.



Thanks

How do I fix a problem were a tower computer won't see the slave hard drive.


It sounds like both drives are trying to be the master on the cable. Have you tried setting both drives jumpers to the CABLE SELECT setting. This allows the BIOS to individually identify them and you specify in the BIOS which is the primary boot drive.

Hitachi Hard drive DK23EB not readable -please help


Have you put the hdd from the laptop into slave mode, its on the back of the hdd, there might be a "jumper" that you need to reposition, failing that only insert the 1 hdd from the laptop and make it the only hdd, it should have an operating system on to run as normal. You can see the <jumper> on the right of this picture, you will need to connect both teminals (slave) with a little plastic jumper.

All the lights come on when I switch on my HP Pavillion dv9600 but the screen is blank.


DO THIS FIRST - Perform a hard reset If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
Actions to take after performing hard reset If no error message is displayed:

If a text error message is displayed, see Troubleshooting Error Messages on a Black Screen During Startup or Boot c02076104.jpg

Black Screen with No Error Messages Connect an external monitor c02076105.gif If there is a problem with the LCD display's back light or a corrupted graphics driver, the display may appear blank but the notebook may be displaying information. Attach an external monitor to test the display. If the image displays on the external monitor, there may be a graphics driver conflict. To resolve this, turn on the computer and press f8 key, then select Enable low-resolution video . If the image displays on the LCD display in low resolution, you can download and install the latest drivers for your specific graphics driver. If there is an image on the external monitor but the notebook display remains black, contact HP for technical assistance. Disconnect all peripherals and repeat the hard reset Even though users are instructed to disconnect all peripheral devices from the notebook when doing a hard reset , some devices are often overlooked. c02069237.gif Double-check that all devices are disconnected including: external keyboard and mouse (wired or wireless), USB connected external drives and devices, thumb drives and flash drives, network storage devices, PC card, SD memory cards, express card, eSata connections, firewire or similar devices, printer, scanner, camera, port replicator, or docking station, any CD/DVD from the optical disc drive, and any media from the multi-card reader.B

After trouble with getting video,It now shuts down


Does your BIOS?, or motherboard jumper? have the ability to DISABLE the Onboard Video? If it does, then you must do that, first. Also try pressing F8 at boot time and select VGA Boot. OR simply boot up in Safe Mode, When booted, either way, Remove the/any OLD drivers, add/remove programs, Then, after a reboot, again, using F8, either VGA or Safe Mode, & use the DVD that has the drivers for the card you are using and install the Drivers & Software, I think the NVIDIA card will set up easier. Set the resolution to say 1024 x768 32 bit to start and if you need more higher resolution, go up from there.

I have an asus eee pc and cannot start the computer. its error 0x0000007e


It looks like and malfunctioning driver or hardware problem
Method 1: Make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); First, make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space. The Stop error can be caused by insufficient hard disk space.

If you can use safe mode or the Recovery Console to start the computer, delete any unnecessary temporary files, Internet cache files, program backup files, and files that contain saved file fragments from disk scans (.chk files). You can also install Windows XP on another hard disk that has more free space.

If you cannot start the computer, go to the next method to update the computer BIOS.

For more information about safe mode or the Recovery Console, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 315222 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222/ ) A description of the Safe Boot Mode options in Windows XP 314058 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058/ ) Description of the Windows XP Recovery Console Method 2: Update the computer BIOS loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If freeing space on your hard disk did not resolve the problem, the BIOS might have to be updated. Use the hardware and software vendor contact information articles that are listed in the "References" section to contact the computer manufacturer to obtain the most recent BIOS update.

Note When you update the BIOS, you might have to disable BIOS memory options, such as caching or shadowing, temporarily. Method 3: Disable or update device drivers loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you have updated the BIOS successfully and the problem persists, the video adapter drivers on the computer might have to be updated or disabled. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the video adapter drivers:
  1. If a driver is listed by name in the Stop error message, disable or remove that driver.
    • If the error occurs during the startup sequence and the system partition uses the NTFS file system, you might be able to use safe mode to rename or to delete the faulty driver.
    • If the driver is used as part of the system startup process in safe mode, you must use the Recovery Console to start the computer.
  2. If the Stop error message does not indicate a specific driver, update the video adapter drivers to the latest versions.
  3. Disable or remove any drivers or services that you recently added.
  4. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to determine whether the PCI devices in the computer are compatible with Windows XP. For information about the HCL, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx)
Method 4: Remove unsigned drivers loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you have updated the video adapter drivers and the problem persists, or if you cannot start Windows in safe mode, the problem might be caused by a different, unsigned driver. Remove all drivers that are not digitally signed by Microsoft. For more information about how to do this, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 316434 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316434/ ) How to perform advanced clean-boot troubleshooting in Windows XP Method 5: Remove all third-party drivers loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); You might be unable to determine which third-party driver causes the error. If removing unsigned drivers does not resolve the issue, try moving all third-party driver files from the %Windir%\System32\Drivers folder to a different location. Follow these steps to move the third-party driver files:
  1. Use the Recovery Console to start the computer, or start the computer from a different installation of Windows if you have performed a parallel Windows installation.
  2. Create a temporary folder to hold the driver files. For example, you could create c:\DriverTemp.
  3. Move all files that do not have a creation date for Windows XP of 8/13/2001 from the %Windir%\System32\Drivers folder into the temporary folder that you created in step 2.

    Caution If the computer relies on third-party IDE or SCSI controller drivers for correct operation, you must identify those driver files and then leave them in the %Windir%\System32\Drivers folder.
  4. Restart the computer.
  5. Continue the Windows Setup program. You can add the driver files back to the computer one at a time to identify the faulty driver.
Method 6: Remove third-party remote control services loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you still have the problem after you use the previous methods and the Stop error message contains the Win32k.sys file name instead of a driver file name, the problem might be caused by a third-party remote control program. To remove the service, use the Recovery Console to start the computer and then delete the third-party remote control service file.

Drivers are not needed for this Ext HDD.
If you go to your Computer Management>Storage Devices,you will have to assign a Drive letter for it to show in your "My Computer" as a External Hard Drive.
Also ensure that drive is set as "slave" and do not connect until computer is booted to Desktop.
All changes will take effect after reboot.

Ikebana fireblaster external hard drive crash?


If the information on it is worth more than the warranty, or the warranty has expired, then open it up, physically extract the hard drive itself and mount it in a pc as a slave drive. Then you should be able to get your data. Sounds like the power supply in the external drive has gone - please post back if you want us to try and source spares etc Hope this helps :)
