My screen is blank and says manager cannot reboot

screen on what? Why can't people put enough info to answer a question? Are you talking about Windows, and the Windows "boot manager"?

here are some fixes to try:
(located here: https://neosmart.net/wiki/bootmgr-is-missing/) I recommend working from bottom up, and trying system restore...unless you have a boot CD/DVD ...in which case try startup repair first.
<Donna> https://everythingit.us
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This repair method works if you have the Windows installation disc.
Here are the steps to fix the BOOTMGR error with an installation CD:
  1. Insert your Windows install CD
  2. Restart your computer and boot from the CD
  3. Press any key when you see the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message
  4. Click Repair your computer after selecting your language, time and keyboard method
  5. Select the drive of your Windows installation and click Next. The standard drive is usually C:\
  6. Select Startup Repair
  7. Wait for the process to finish

Fix #3: Use bootrec.exe to rebuild the BCD

bootrec.exe is a tool built in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) that you can use to troubleshoot and repair the error.
bootrec.exe can repair boot configuration data and master boot records. BCD, which stands for Boot Configuration Data, contains boot configurations options and controls how Windows is started.
Here are the steps for accessing bootrec.exe to rebuild the master boot sector:
  1. Insert your Windows 7 or Vista install disc
  2. Restart your computer and boot from the CD
  3. Press any key at the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message
  4. Choose Repair your computer after you select the language, time and keyboard method
  5. Select your Windows installation drive (usually C:\)
  6. Click Next
  7. Select Command Prompt in the System Recovery Options box
  8. Write the following command and press Enter:bootrec /rebuildbcd

Fix #4: Run System Restore

The next solution will work only if you have System Restore enabled on your Windows.
Here are the steps for restoring your PC with System Restore:
  1. Insert the Windows 7 or Vista install disc
  2. Restart your computer and boot from the install disc
  3. Press a key when "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message appears on your screen
  4. Click on Repair your computer after selecting a language, time and keyboard method
  5. Select the drive where you installed Windows (usually C:\)
  6. Click Next
  7. Select System Restore from the System Recovery Options box
  8. Follow the System Restore wizard instructions to select a restore point
  9. Restore your PC by clicking Finish

Fix #5: Use bootrec.exe to fix the boot

The partition boot sector is stored on the hard disk drive and contains the necessary code to start the Windows boot process. If this partition is corrupt or not properly configured during a Windows install it would lead to "BOOTMGR is missing or corrupt" errors at startup.
This method needs a copy of your original Windows installation disc.
Here are the steps to fix this error using the bootrec.exe tool, the same tool used in Fix #4 above:
  1. Insert the Windows 7 or Vista install disc
  2. Restart your computer and boot from the disc
  3. Press any key at the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message
  4. Choose Repair your computer after you select the language, time and keyboard method
  5. Select your Windows installation drive (usually C:\)
  6. Click Next
  7. Select Command Prompt from the System Recovery Options box
  8. Write the following command and hit Enter: bootrec /fixboot
  9. Wait for this message to appear: The operation completed successfully.
  10. Restart your computer
tip

How to run System Restore from the Command Prompt?

Here's how:
  1. Restart your computer to boot your system in to Safe Mode.
  2. Go to Start>> Turn off computer>> Restart.
  3. When the message "Please select the operating system to start" appears, press F8.

I just got my asus G73Jw, and my keyboard dosen't light up, none of my fn keys don't work, neither does my enter key

SOLUTION by Arun Sangal

1. As said by others above, if its just that you have turned the lights completly off.. then press "Fn" key + F4 key (keyboard light increase) button.

2. If the above doesn't do anything or-- if Fn key + any other F? key (like F11/F12) for sound decrease/increase don't do anything ... meaning your FN key driver is messed up, then dont worry, See Hannah Montana and relax.

After seeing it, go to your computer desktop, there you'll see, "e-driver" shortcut/icon. Click it and you'll see a new pop-up window. In this windows, ASUS various ACPI/etc drivers will "AUTOMATICALLY" download (provided you are connected to internet) and it's fast.

I did the same, and system automatically restarted/rebooted during the "e-driver" update process. Finally I restarted my system/laptop (G873JW) and "HOLY HYENAS".... my system is running like a pony ***. AWESOME, it worked for me and my problem got resolved.

NOTE:
1. In case you dont see "e-Driver" icon on your desktop, then usually the file is stored at "C:\eSupport\eDriver\InstAll.exe" on my laptiop. Try runing the above file from "Windows" command prompt or double clicking on this file by going to "C:\eSupport\eDriver" folder and double clicking on "InstAll.exe" file.

GIGA, you should be good to go with this FN problem on ASUS G73JW or any other series of laptop.

2. During the update process, if you see "ASUS live update" green color window comes up and starts downloading something, hang on, look at it if it's doing anything, if it does some download and hangs at the particular point (i.e. downloading not progressing), then, you can cancel it. BUT make sure the update pop-up window that came after you clicked / ran "e-Driver"/InstAll.exe file, that should complete successfully.

Good luck.

Once the keyboard "FN" key problem is resolved, then you can go to their site and see if they have any updated version of drivers for your video/blah/blah ... thingies.

cheers, Arun Sangal

Code error 80072EFE

I understand you receive an error message 0x80072EFE when trying to installing update from the Windows Update website. This kind of issue may be caused by hardware/software firewalls or proxy server or Windows category files are corrupted. Let’s try the following steps to resolve this issue.

Disable firewalls or other Internet browser programs that can affect the Internet connection. The following programs can affect the connection to the Windows Update site and I suggest you remove or disable them:

McAfee firewall
Norton Internet Security

Panda firewall


Step 2: Delete the CatRoot2 folder
=======================
A: Stop Cryptographic Services:

1. Click Start, click Run, type in "SERVICES.MSC" and press Enter.
2. Double click Cryptographic Services, and then click Stop (if it has been started).

B: After stopping Cryptographic Service, please delete the "Catroot2" folder:

1. Locate the "C:\Windows\System32\" folder.
2. Delete the Catroot2 subfolder in System32.

Note: I am assuming your Windows Vista is installed in C:\Windows.

C: Re-start Cryptographic Services:

1. Click Start, click Run, type in "SERVICES.MSC" and press Enter.
2. Double click Cryptographic Services, and then click Start.

After performing the above steps, please visit the Windows Update website and check the available update.

Hope this helps.

I am having some problem with my keyboard some part of it are working properly why some are not..and am trying to download the drivers on the net but i can get it the model is dell laptop pentium3

You need to uninstall the keyboard drivers to solve this.

Please perform the following steps to get in to device manager.
1. Press "Windows" key and 'R" simultaneously to open the command window.
2. In the open dialog box type 'devmgmt.msc' and hit Enter.
3. A Window with the name 'Device Manager' opens.
4. Click on + sign beside the keyboard entry and a list of devices are shown.
5. Right click on the device and select uninstall.
6. Restart the computer.

The drivers are automatically installed from the Operating System after you restart the computer.

If the issue is still there, then enter into BIOS page by pressing F10 key or F2 key on the keyboard when you restart the computer.

In this page select restore all the settings to default. Save and exit.

This will fix the issue.

Keyboard problem

It may be easier to do so, and you won't lose any saved work on installed programmes and updates installed since you inserted the keyboard. You could try re installing the keyboard and touch pad drivers and if no change carry out the above.
