US has 110volt power outlet while other countries like Philippines have different power outlet outlet voltage of 220v. You cant use the same power adaptor that you use in the US but if you use a power regulator like a UPS device it wont have a problem

    Will it even POST or not ? If it does the POST then its the OS that you need to reinstall.

Have black screen. Error PXE E53 help


Check the physical connection for your hard drive. Sometimes they get loose. With the computer off and the battery removed, remove he hard drive and then replace it. Try to boot again.

If this fails to help, you may have a hard drive failure and need to replace it.

Acer Aspire One (XP) Will not boot up. Displays "Windows did not start successfully screen". Whichever option is selected the start up screen displays as if starting normally but after a few seconds there...


Sounds like you are experiencing the "blue screen of death." This is typical when a hard-drive is failing. If you have boot-discs, you can try restoring your system from those. A warning, though: Any personal files you have on your drive WILL be lost, unless you have backed them up recently. If you have info you absolutely cannot lose, you need to take your computer to a repairman who has forensic recovery software before you do anything. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this situation requires professional help.

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

Black screen w/blinking cursor


So.. you can select safe mode? Or you turn it on and it is resuming into the blank screen?

If the latter. Unplug the power, pull the battery out for 20 seconds or so. Then put it all back together and try booting up.

Slammed ZToshiba A135-2276 will not boot


I'm not sure why you slammed the system shut, bu if it was to do with a system performance issue, the most likely answer is that the hard disk drive is or has failed.

If running Windows XP, boot to recovery console, see if you can run chkdsk on the drive. If Vista, boot to the DVD and run repair my computer.

Most likely, if those options do not get the system to boot, a hard drive replacement may be in the cards.

Formatting problem


Does the new drive have XP on it already?
If not just boot from the XP disc and you should be able to do it from there.

Laptop restarting


Although it could be the hard drive, it could be any number of things as well. First, when the computer starts up, press the F8 key to bring up some options. Select disable automatic restart. This should allow the computer to stop at a blue screen so we can get some information from it. Do this and report back what that information says and we'll go from there. Thanks.
