My daughters lap top has suddenly stopped working.

When it's turned on the screen is blank but illuminated, the cursor is visable and can be moved but nothing else happens.

The pc is standing at command prompt, which means it is unable to find the boot.ini file required to boot into windows

When you say you pressed F8 did you keep pressing it until you got a menu saying Safe Mode,last known good configuration, start in VGA mode etc, if so use last known good configuration and let it reboot.

If still nothing then you will need the windows cd to perform a system repair.

How to repair my satellite lap top computer, which became suddenly black? and I re-started lap top and nothing happened


It would be impossible to diagnose your problem without more information.
You may need to take it to a repair shop.
Is your battery faulty?
Are there any lights on the laptop when yopu plug it in?
Have you checked the fuse in the power adapter?

Go to control panel- printers and check that your printer is selected as the default printer. If it isn`tn then right click on the icon and set it as the default printer. I am assuming that your laptop is recognizing the printer of course and your usb cable is inserted properly.

Hi... My 14 y.o. daughter has a Benq lap top (Joy book) which was purchased in Hong Kong 15 months ago. The other night, when she had it plugged in to recharge, we suddenly smelt a "burning...


hmm just ur power supply (battery) might have burned out if ur lucky
and if ur unlucky then ur mobo fried out also
so i would suggest is getting a replacement battery from a store that accpets returns (such as staples, best but or along these lines) and get a battery that replaces the old one. and if ur lucky the new battery would do the trick (this seemslike what happened)
if not.... just take the hard drive from that laptop and buy a new laptop and put the new hard drive in that laptop
or u can take it to a technician and ask him to see if ur mobo fried up and if its a real expensive laptop (probably is cause its a BEnQ) then just replace the mobo probably cost u around 150
