Try change the battery on the motherboard, then disconnect things like your hard drive and cdroms annd floppy drive because you might have a problem with one of them, also disconnect everything else except your screen and maybe keyboard then see, if this doesn't help try updating the bios

I am VERY confused by your description here. I can't tell if you're talking about the processor as it appears inside of your computer itself...or if you're refering to the processor as it appears in Windows.

Please try to be a little more specific with your explanation. Go step-by-step in what you are doing and what is happening.

Screen is black

Have you used the laptop for a PowerPoint presentation?

1. Sometimes when the laptop have been used with dual displays, one disconnects it in EXTERNAL display mode. You can restore it to LCD display by pressing both FN+F5 (or whatever F-KEY with two monitors printed on.
2. Check the memory sticks. Test one at a time to see if there is one damaged; if that fails, the problem may be the video card, or processor.

I have a problem regarding may pc...I also want to know what is the possible solution to made of it..Here's the problem..every time I open my Ups my cpu automatic on even I don't push the On button in cpu...


This is a possible hardware failure. You can try these steps:

1. Try resetting the bios to factory settings using the the jumper.(check your motherboard manual for that).
2. Remove the memory, then turn on the pc. If you do not hear any beeps, it is not a memory failure.
3. Disconnect all cables connected to the motherboard except the power cable for your motherboard.
Turn on the pc and check if there is a beep or video. If it still does not work it could be your motherboard or processor.

My hp dv6000 won't boot up or show any display.

- Try cleaning the memory first, undetected memory leads to no display.
- Try using external monitor if displays shown up. If it has display then you have a Laptop LCD damage but if not then you have a video chip problem.
- damaged processor can also leads to no display.

On power up it beeps 3 to 4 times and won't boot up

Open up the chassis, remove the DDR memory modules, clean out the dust bunnies
thoroughly with compressed air, and reseat the memory modules one at a time,
attempting to power on the system with each added module. Always unplug the
computer from the wall current when adding or removing hardware.

The 3 beep at startup is a fetal memory error code this may be due to either bad memory module or corruption of BIOS.

Let me know the result after performing the steps I will be glad to assist you further

Dell vostro 400 2 beeps in bios post test


The cause of beeping is the memory problem. maybe the memory stick is not inserted correctly. If your memory stick will not correctly inserted it will damaged the memory slot. Try to use the other slot, if the same thing happen. You memory slot will be damaged you need to bring you motherboard to the computer repair center. Ask first how you will pay, if the labor cost is high. its better to buy a brand new motherboard.

HELP! Random BSOD!

I did some research on your error
and if its the 0x0000007f u say it is then this is why is BSOD-ing

- Your computer has hardware or software problems (hardware failure is the most common cause).

- You try to over clock the speed of your computer's processor (for example, you set a 150 MhZ
processor to run at 187 MhZ).

The above STOP error means a trap occurred in kernel mode and the trap is either one the kernel is not allowed to have or is always fatal. The most common causes of a STOP 0x7F are:

- Low-level hardware corruption, such as corrupt memory (RAM)

- Mismatched memory modules

- A malfunctioning motherboard


- If either software or hardware can cause a particular trap, a debug is required to determine which is the cause. If you suspect a hardware problem, try the following hardware troubleshooting steps:

1. Test the RAM in the computer by running the diagnostic software that is provided by the computer manufacturer. Replace any RAM that is reported as bad. Also, make sure that all the RAM in the computer is the same speed.

2. Try removing or swapping out controllers, cards, or other peripherals.

3. Try a different motherboard on the computer.

- If you are over clocking the speed of your processor, set it back to the speed at which it is designed to run.

- Check with the hardware vendor for any updated hardware drivers or BIOS updates, or both.
