Hi,

When you start up the laptop, tap the F2 or F10 key like a piano in four four time and see if you do not get a bios setup screen, sometimes called a System Setup Screen. If you do post back to me as soon as you can and await my instructions, but basically you want to page through the setup screens until you find a setting for the external display default. Change this back to the laptop panel. It is probably set to an external display monitor or LCD panel.

On your keyboard are special keys you are probably familiar with. These are used in conjunction with the Fn key. To activate an external monitor and turn off your LCD display, you would press the Fn key + the F key that has an icon on it in the same color as the Fn keytop. The icon for the external monitor looks something like this |O| with the circle here being replaced by a rectangle. Often this is just replaced with two rectangles, one filled with shade one not. The F Key is almost always the F5 key.

To test this, start your computer, then press the Pause key. Then press the Fn key plus F5 or which ever key it was that you found with an icon as I attempted to desribe.

My guess this is what has happened, the alternate external display is activated and this needs to be changed. Sometimes you have to go into the System setup pages and tell the laptop you are on the Panel display by default and not the external monitor, otherwise you will have to press the Fn key sequence every time you boot.

Let me know how you make out.

Regards,
Worldvet

I have a compaq presario m2000 and i can start it up and it comes up with this black screen and askes me to start normally so i click the and it comes up with this blue page and then restarts is there...


This sounds like a hard drive failure. Before you do anything, extract the hd and hook it up USB to a good computer, and extract your data.

So, from there, it is a dollars and cents question....You have to either clone the hard drive, if it can be read, or a system reload on to a NEW hard drive. When this is all done, often you are 2/3 of the cost of a new machine, but you still have an older system.... Fans fail, HD's fail, keyboards fail.....Windows 7 works great...so no worries there...

This is your call. Personal data is important. Especially photos and e-mail addresses...

I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.

Acer travelmate 292elcI problem starting


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)
