The screen does work in "safe mode", so the screen is functioning. It might be something with the graphics settings (I use a separate screen on this computer often). Step-by-step procedure to run in safe mode to check out the problem?
I am trying to find a solution to repair a Vista (Home?) installation on an Aspire 5920. The laptop blue screens with a Stop error code 00000F4 when booted in either Normal and Safe Mode. This problem started after installing a program although it may also have a malware/virus problem. The inbuilt Startup Repair and System Restore both fail.
I have the Acer Recovery disks but the Acer eRecovery website suggests that all personal data will be lost if they are used. Is it possible to repair the OS installation from the recovery disks instead of reinstalling it?
I start the laptop and I get the black screen with the Dell logo on it. There is a progress bar at the bottom that moves across to the right as the boot up progresses. In the bottom right corner, it shows the option of hitting F2 for Set Up or F12 for Boot Menu. I can access both of these menus. It then progresses to a screen with the Windows logo with the words "Resuming Windows" underneath. Once that completes, I get a black screen!
I was told that I should boot up the laptop in safe mode by hitting F8.....
My Inspiron N5050 no longer boots up, not even in safe mode or "last known good configuration." Decided to reinstall the Operating System, but need to know whether I have 32 bit or 64 bit.Have all the originbal documentation, including system specifications, but cannot tell whether my laptop is 32 bit or 64 bit.How to determine if you can't boot up the system?
I was trying to boot in safe mode so i went into boot options checked safe boot and minimal. Then when I restarted, it just kept restarting over and over again. I can't get to safe mode. I can get to the setup and boot manager. I tried running diagnostics and there were no errors.
I entered Safe Mode in my Envy TS 15 running windows 8.1 to fix some issues with my Norton software and now I can't figure out how to exit back to normal mode. Internet is shut off in safe mode (even though I selected safe mode with networking) so I can run any of Support resolutions. How to do this?
Vista Home Premium, didn't have a disc so ordered one from Dell. Upon startup it ask me to put a disc in to repair.
Will this work, my understanding you needed a Vista disc, and this computer does not seem to have a partition with Vista on it, for the repair. I wondering if this will work? I tried diagnostics everything seems fine, but it loops to safe mode.
I have Dell N4010 laptop with 4GB ram (1333 Mhz, 2X2) purchased in Jan 2011. Recently I bought transcend 4GB 1333 and have removed existing 2GB ram and replaced with 4GB to increase the physical memory to 6GB. I can see that the ram has been detected and the total is showing up in Bios. After this, the system does not boot, it just keep restarting.
I tried to start with safemode, however the files load but at the end, I receive a blue screen with error like '...Bad pool header...'.
I found a trojan that is attached to skype.exe. I have tried to start in safe mode pressing F8 on start up but I am not able to access safe mode start up. x201....3249-CTO....i7....4GB RAM....64-bit OS....Windows 7
I have an HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook PC. The other day, it crashed and gave a blue screen error. Since then, it wont start. Ive tried starting it normally and in safe mode, neither work. This is the information given in the blue screen.:
*** win32k.sys - Address FFFFF9600006CCA3 base at FFFFF96000000000, Datestamp 53c5df64
When it first crashed, I was playing a game, then the screen got all pixelated, then the blue screen. The computer has had overheating problems because the fan doesn't work 100%. It would shut off often from overheating, but I cleaned the vents out thoroughly, and it hasn't overheated since then. Since the computer wont start, I cant get to the crash dump files.
I purchased my daughter an Aspire One 725-0687 last Christmas. She only used it a couple months and it has sat around for the past 5 months with no use at all. She went to use it today and couldn't remember her password. I tried several but continue to get the same response... "Your PC is offline. Please sign in with the last password used on this PC". For some reason, it's not connecting to wifi, I have removed the battery, I have attempted "safe mode" with Alt f5, f8 and even f10 and I get nothing except back to the sign in screen. I tried ALT, CTRL, DLT and it does nothing.
Acer 9300 won't startup after going into sleep mode, on a restart or being powered on.
I press the power button and you can hear activity but a black screen
The only way I can get it to properly power ON is to press power button and press F2; sometimes it takes several attempts to boot up. It sometimes goes to the 'setup' screen and I exit and have success but most of the time it will go to the normal windows startup.
Looking through this forum it looks like a Motherboard issue? Would to have more input from all
I have a Studio 1558 laptop running Windows 7. Recently, when I open an application (ex. Microsoft Word, McAfee, Excel), the screen fades to black, stays black for 2-3 seconds, then pops back up. It has happened at a few other times too, but I don't recall the specific circumstances. The laptop is 2 1/2 years old, unfortunately out of warranty ....
I haven't visited in a long time, not since getting my 9300 a few years back. Since then, the screen has crapped out and is blank. I get nothing.
I have acquired an ibook G4 and an external monitor recently. I need help with these options to be able to either connect the external monitor or be able to transfer files:
1. Connect the external monitor to the dell 9300 with the vga connector. i tried that. i am using an external keyboard for the dell since the dell's keyboard crapped out too.
the external has no 'fn' key, but i read i can use 'scroll lock + f8' to switch to the external monitor. doesn't work. any suggestions on how to switch monitors without being able to see the dell's screen?
2. Firewire. If I cannot get the monitor to work, then I want to try this. I am new to firewire, but i read it is possible to transfer files from the pc to the mac. Is it possible to transfer files though if one screen is blank? Could I see the dell's output on the mac screen somehow .....
in the past few months i noticed some minor screen snowing that went away with time or repower of the system. while using pc tonight the screen all the sudden crapped out. don't know if i should replace the part or just sell it as is for scrap
the bar also changes color and is there regardless (bio, safe mode, normal ...)
i haven't hook it up to an external monitor because it's kind a hassle this late but will try tomorrow
bios still a04 since the battery died 4 year ago and i'm too cheap to buy one since it's plugged in 24/7
I'm trying to repair a 9300 with a radeon x300 video card in it - after the LCD panel died.
I've tried two panels to replace it, a WUXGA and a WXGA both from a 9400 - both panels are tested, and known to be absolutely working, as are the inverters.
In the 9300, the LCDs work, but the backlight doesn't come on, so they are effectively useless. I've tried them with all combinations of inverters, the ones specifically for those screens, then swapped around, and then changed for the original 9300 WUXGA inverter - nothing makes any difference, even though all parts are tested and working in a 9400.
The machine works fine with an external monitor, and in-a-sense works fine with the LCD panels - the output is working fine both ways, just not the backlight. I've just never heard of a backlight problem on the card, only ever the inverter or backlight. The fact that the card was working fine before the old panel died also makes me doubt a problem there (and the old panel was an LCD problem, not a backlight problem).
Unfortunately, an LCD panel with no backlight at all is unusable, as it's almost impossible to see anything at all - much worse than a dim backlight. You have to hold it at the right angle, in the right lighting conditions, and squint
I've just tried flashing to the latest A05 system bios, and the latest ATI video bios from Dell, and that hasn't helped. Is there some good reason that 9400 panels aren't compatible with a 9300, or have I got a video card with dead backlight output?
The video card is the only thing I can think of, but it was working fine before the old panel died, and I've never heard of symptoms like this.
I don't have a working panel from a 9300 to test with, and can't afford to risk buying another panel, also replacement cards for the 9300 are like hens teeth.
I was browsing the internet a day ago and I was on a "COLLEGE" website so i know this is not due to a virus. At this time all of a suden my screen went black.
I powered the laptop off and turned it back on, The Dell logo appeared but the screen was fuzzy and had some "tearing" i dont really know what to call it but it doesnt look right. Kind of like an old VCR playing videos. The screen then whent black after the windows xp splash screen. The laptop still boots to windows but it does not display anything.
I booted into safe mode, everything functions correctly and the way it's supposed to. I then booted into VGA mode same thing everything functions and works the way it is supposed to. I also ran some virus scans just incase, nothing was found.
Whilist in safe mode i changed the resolution down to 800 x 600 and still no luck after booting in regular mode.
In VGA mode i tryed to change resolution and the screen displayed some blue fuzzy lines then whent black.
After this I booted back into safe mode and done severeral diffrent System Restores at diffrent dates. Still no luck
After going through all this I am assuming this is a GFX card problem. The laptop is about 3 years old and ive played games pretty hard on it ever since. The card has defenitly gone through some some stress. Can anyone confirm this?
I know that the i9300 sells for about 400 working, and i checked on ebay for a card that is a whopping 180 bucks. Id just assume buy a new laptop. Then sell the i9300 laptop for parts because everything else works fine. Or maybe buy the card swich it out and sell it for a price. Maybe there is a way to fix it i dont know. can anyone help?
Lastly, i thought i would add that when i check the bios the card is recognized and it displays all the correct info for the card. IS there a way to tell for 100% that the card is bad?
I have Inspiron 9300. Unfortunately, my geforce 6800 died and I bought as a replacement x300 which was installed by a laptop repair service (they fixed other thins too.
It was due to power surge). Everything works but when I boot up the computer or when the display is set to be turned off in the power settings in Windows instead of being actually turned off the display is on and is all white.
Also brightness regulation does not work via Fn +arrows keys and is set to maximum and the white color is so intense that I get a headache after a couple of hours staring at the screen.
