The pc turns on runs thru its normal process, and then a screen saver appears but none of the icons on the desktop appear. It will just hang there.
Any suggestions... I have tried using the system's recovery disk, and no luck. I tried reinstalling the MBR and then restarted the pc and still nothing. There is an option to reinstall everything but most files will be lost. If that is my last resort I will do that, just thought if there was something to prevent losing files?
Please and Thank you

Re: Will not boot up!!!!
If you have your Windows installation disk then you need tp press 'R' for repair instead of a full installation.
This will repair all the system files and you will not lose any documents or settings.
But I think maybe you have a bad sector on your hard drive, so when you get up and running go to your HDD manufacturer web site for a diagnosis and repair.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

To enable missing icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop. Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way
