Odd. The manual doesn't mention anything about that. It almost sounds like one or more control buttons is partially shorted or leaky. That can happen if a foreign substance got in it or it was stored in an unheated garage or shed for a long time, etc.

Black rectangular box shows on screen


This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.

Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

Ibm thinkpad t30 how to get it to enter safe mode


Turn the computer off Turn the computer on Immediately hit F8 several times a second until a black and white menu appears, if you get the windows splash, you missed it. Start over Select which way you want windows to start in safe mode You will get a lot of white messages on a black screen You will then get a message that says proceed to safe mode or do a system restore to recover Proceed to safe mode.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs up as I do this for fun.

I have a Dell 1510 vostro laptop, when i turn it on it shows me like some letters and numbers and tells me to press f2 to enter the BIOS menu, but then after that the screen just goes black.


It sounds like the Hard drive may not be recognized by the computer. This could be caused by a couple of things..
1. The connections to the hard drive misteriously came disconnected. Open the side of tower and ensure all cables are connected firmly. The hard drive would be a long rectangular device. 3.5" wide and about 7-8" long.
2. The hard drive has failed and may need to be replaced.

There is a rectangular black box across the screen - it goes away when I use the favorite button and have multi screens showing - it returns when I close out the favorites. Color, sound, picture quality...


in the customer menu--find the closed caption settings---you will most likely find the set has been set to TEXT 1---with the remote select either CC1 or OFF---the black box was for text (books) and was not ever used much---usually someone engages it by accident
