You could try going into safe mode and make sure the correct drivers are installed and if they are then you can then set the correct resolution.

Green screen


1.) Press and hold down the "Menu" key until the manufacturer's logo appears on the screen. This could take up to a minute or more. Release the "Menu" key when the logo appears.
2.) Immediately press the "9," "8," "7" and "6" keys in this order. Press the "Enter" button on the remote to enter the "Service Menu" screen.
3.) Press the "Menu" button to go to the second of the two "Service Menu" screens. Press down on the "Down" arrow until you highlight "Color Calibration." Press the "Enter" button to enter the "Color Calibration" screen.
4.) Select one of the color bars on the screen. Adjust the color by changing the values of the color bar by pressing left and right on the "left" and "right" arrows on the remote. Repeat this procedure with the other color bars as well. Stop adjusting the colors when the green cast is no longer present.
5.) Press and hold the "Power" button on the remote to exit the "Service Menu" and save the adjustments you have made.
Now turn the T.V. off. When you turn it back on it should reflect your personal preference.

Booting from the Dell CD that came with my laptop. No good, I never get to the menu. My computer starts booting from the CD, I get the screen where it says 'Windows is loading files' and the white bar....


press F12 at boot time and select to boot the Diagnostics, in there let it run through the diagnostics and see if you get any error codes.

If this is clean then try booting windows into safe mode by pressing F8 as the computer boots up, then select to boot into Safe mode with command prompt and at the command prompt type chkdsk /r let it finish and try booting your system again.

also make sure you are booting the CD by pressing the F12 key at bootup and select the CD/DVD drive as the boot source. You may be inserting a non bootable CD and it just attempts to load the hard disk after. You can tell if this is happening if the CD light is not flickering but the hard disk light is. hard disk light looks like a cylinder on most laptops.

good luck!

My Computer will turn on and go to the windows XP loading screen with the blue bars and will won't load up, it rarely does but when it gets to the log on user screen it freezes


Right after your POST screen goes off,before you get to Windows starting,try pushing the F8 key several times until you get the Windows boot options.Then try 'last known good configuration".
If that doesn't work,you can boot from the Windows installation disk and try to repair your Windows installation.Let me know what happens.
And good or bad, please rate my post?

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

Help please - Asus IS7 board, downloaded a chipset driver - should'nt have, since then computer starts, might go through to windows, might not, then computer goes to what seems to be half power, fans...


Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand each branch of the hardware-tree, and remove all the components installed by that "chipset-driver".
Keep doing them all, and then restart your computer.
Windows should re-detect your hardware, and load the correct drivers.

If that fails:
Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start and navigate to "System Restore".
Choose a check-point dated at a date/time before your screw-up.
Choose "restore" to that date/time.
Follow the on-screen directions.

Acer AL1914 black screen, green light


it sounds like a deleted driver? try getting the driver for the monitor, did you loose the Operating system at some point, if so try a system restore to a date when the computer was working properlly prior to the malfunction. It sounds like it restored you to a time before the driver for that monitor was installed.

Booting but goes black


Take the reinstallation CD and boot from it. Then click R and It will ask what drive you wish to enter. hit the drive number you wish to enter. It will give you options. Once your in type fixboot. just as I have it and it will ask you if you wish to rewrite the boot sector. Hit Y and press enter. Then type exit and it will reboot. If that dosent work you will need to do a repair install. I will walk you through that if we need to.
