My sony laptop turns on but screen is black



Black screen on startup with an amber flashing light A flashing amber light along with your black screen on startup can be a few things.

  1. Not enough power getting to the motherboard.
  2. A dead power supply.
  3. A bent pin or shorted out USB port causing a problem.
Computer black screen after installing new hardware Often when computer users install hardware in order to upgrade their own computers they run into problems. If you have just performed an upgrade and then get a black screen, the answer is obvious. Some hardware components may not be compatible with the others in your system. And of course there is always the risk of static electricity damaging your components when you are not an experienced computer repair person.
You might just be installing a new piece of RAM but the best way to troubleshoot this is to go back to where you started from. Always start from the beginning. If your computer was working and you installed something, then take it back out. Think about what you are doing and try again.

Acer aspire 5600. Did a system restore and the computer would not start the windows programme then stopped trying and comes up with 'ntldr is missing' and won't get past that. Any advice would be much...


Sometimes the only way to repair XP is to reinstall. You do not have to wipe your partition and start over. Just as with previous versions of Windows you can reinstall right over top of an existing setup. This has the advantage of retaining your installed applications, data and settings. You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install. You will need to reinstall SP2 and any Critical Updates from the Windows Update Site. Be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable to the Blaster and Welchia worms. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first. Then visit the Windows Update Site to patch your system It is always prudent to backup important data before you make changes to XP. There are two approaches. The first one should be used if you can still boot to your Windows Desktop. Simply pop the XP CD into the CD-Rom drive and select Install->Upgrade[recommended]. This will install XP overtop of itself in the same way as upgrading from a previous setup. However if your version is an OEM version then you will not have this option. If you do not see the option to Upgrade[recommended] DO NOT choose New Install as that will either overwrite your current setup completely or give you a dual boot setup. Also if you have an older version of XP and have upgraded to a new service pack you will get a message stating that a newer version of Windows was found and you will not be able to run the Upgrade.

1-Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key
2-You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed
3-
The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.
Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.
When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.

After upgrade from Win Vista, the screen dont work on Win 7


One word DRIVERS. This is ya whole problem... simply Win 7 doesn't have the correct drivers for your PC. Unless ya have the correct drivers ya gonna always have problems. Find suitable drivers for everyone of your devices and store in a Directory, when you install, then, ya will have the correct drivers and hopefully Win 7 will install fine. Remember also Drivers can be installed in "Computability Mode" for XP SP2. Otherwise stick with Vista?

Laptop won't boot into Windows XP


Did you do an upgrade or new install? Did you check the system requirements first to see if you could upgrade to Vista? This could all play a part in why it does not boot up. I suggest you reinstall windows XP again.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
