Dell XPS 12 :: Laptop Won't Start?

Apr 3, 2013

I tuned my Dell XPS 12 off because my Outlook wasn't working properly.  Now I can't start it back up.  The screen is totally black and nothing comes on.  Only the backlit keys seem to be working.  The connection box between it and the electrical cord was very warm.  I let it totally cool down and unplugged it but it still won't start.

Dell Inspiron M5030 :: Can't Get Laptop To Boot Up / Start

Jan 27, 2013

can't get my laptop to boot up/start. No sounds. No beeps. No nothing. Power cord indicates it is working fine. Battery should be charged since I rarely operate it under the battery. Has been running fine, no problems, I paused a movie and since then it is completely dark and not operating. Really disappointing since it is my main computer that I use every day.

Dell Vostro 860 :: Laptop Does Not Turn On?

Mar 24, 2013

Pressing I/O Start Button results in nothing (no blinks, sound, nothing at all).

Blue "Ready Light" lights up when plugged in.

Swapped out AC adapter with one from a Latitude 510 Laptop. Numbers were all identical. 

The Vostro ac adapter works on the Latitude 510.

The Latitude 510 ac adapter has the same result as the Vostro power supply. Ergo, ac adapter  is good.

The I/O switch appears to be loose. (Probable problem.)

I've seen lots of posts about laptops that won't start but none with the exact same problem as me. When I press the power button it lights up and it sounds like it's going to turn on but nothing happens. There's nothing on the screen. It sounds like it used to if you closed the lid while it was on.

Dell Inspiron M5030 :: Laptop Won't Start Up / Just Beeps Seven Times

Mar 6, 2013

My Inspiron M5030 laptop was working perfectly fine last night.  It was plugged in all night, and I had done the usual hibernate/sleep mode before going to bed.  When I tried to start it up this morning, the screen remained black.  It made the startup fan noise but then that stopped.  Then it gave seven quite loud beeps.  If I don't turn it off, it continues to give the seven beeps separated by a short break.

HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Won't Start Properly

Oct 27, 2009

My brother has got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop. When he tries to start the laptop he gets a blue screen with the error message contained in the attached file. When I try restarting and pressing F8 to enter Safe Mode it just continues to this screen.

It started happening after HP requested that he download some new software to his machine. He did so and this problem started. It was a popup on the screen which asked him to install new software.

I am trying to troubleshoot it for him.

Sony :: Laptop Won't Start After Memory Upgrade!

Feb 23, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio S460 laptop.

Recently it had been lagging really bad, and so I was advised that it might be a power supply problem, or, another solution would be to upgrade the memory.

I went to my local computer store asking about it, and he recommended trying to upgrade the memory (I currently had two 256 MB memory sticks, for a total of 512).

I told him my model number, and he pointed me to a Kingston 1 GB memory stick, and said he was pretty sure that it would be compatible. Since it was only $10, I bought two of them.

so I went ahead and replaced the two 256 MB memory sticks with my newly acquired 1 GB memory sticks. But after I put the laptop back together, and I pushed the power button, nothing showed up on the screen (although the lights indicated the power was at least on)

Dell Inspiron 17R :: When Start Laptop Logo Flashes On Screen And Turns Blank

Apr 17, 2013

I am currently using windows 8 as my OS. When I attempt to start my laptop the Dell logo flashes on the screen and the screen turns blank/black and sits there for a few min before displaying an empty bar and F12 Boot Options in the bottom right hand corner.

I have attempted to press F12 to try and load windows in safe mode but everything is frozen at this point.

Is there a way to determine if its a hardware issue or windows issue. When I searched for the issue I found some with a similar issue but the link provided for support was no longer valid

Dell Vostro 3500 :: Can Use A Standard USB Keyboard And Mouse With Such A Laptop

Jul 1, 2010

I have never used a laptop before (I prefer to work on a server machine) but am considering one at present.I'm looking at a Vostro 3500 but that could change.

1)  Can I use a standard USB keyboard and mouse with such a laptop?  (No need for special devices!)

2)  Are there any problems with PS-2 to USB adaptors connecting keyboard and mouse to a USB port?  (Yes I have a few keyboards and mice in storage!)

3)  Can I install a standard out of the box version of Windows 7 Ultimate (already licensed) on the Vostro 3500?

4)  I saw reference somewhere to touch screen control in Win 7 coming sometime.  What are the release plans for such capabilities in Dell laptops?

Laptop locked up during the flash and now it doesn't even show the bios start up! I removed the BIOS battery and LT battery. Maybe I need to wait longer then 5 mins for the entire system to discharge and then try power up again. So far just a black screen!

Dell Vostro 3550 :: When Turn On Laptop Loud Beeps Play

Feb 9, 2013

I bought a Vostro 3550 almost one year ago. About two weeks ago, most times I turn on the laptop, some loud beeps play (probably some warning beeps), but now, those beeps still make their presence, in lower intensity, during the usage of the machine. It is really irritating. I do not have a clue about what to look for or what it can be.

Dell Vostro 1400 :: Laptop Typing Automatically In Search Or In Browser

Jul 30, 2013

I have Dell Vostro 1400 and I am facing a very wierd issue. My laptop types automatically in the search or in a browser if it is open and in any application that it can type. It mostly types "asdf;lkj" like this. Again when I use a media player it automatically increase or decreases the volume to the max. and sometimes restart the player. It again sometimes automatically locks my computer.

TRIED THINGS:

1. I have already formated my laptop many times and also updated the BIOS as I thought it as a VIRUS problem. Also, I have tried different antivirus software but all in vain.

2. I have also dislodged my laptop keyboard and using an external keyboard; but this is also not working.

3. Prior to all these I have called DELL Service for support. But they also could not offer me a satisfactory answer.

Dell Vostro 3700 :: C000021 - Fatal System Error On Laptop

Feb 24, 2013

After an automatic update of a Dell Vostro 3700 laptop with Windows 7 on it, I got the following problem : 

- First, I got the black screen with the information "Applying update operation 3 of 18014 (_0000000000000000_)
- Then it shows a quick blue screen and then the computer restarts directly. 
- I have been able to display the complete blue screen message. Here it is : 

                    STOP : c000021a {Fatal System Error}

The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000034 0x001005b0). The system has been shut down

I tried to start the recovery tools of Windows but it keeps on saying that it's not able to recover the system. With this information :

- Signature 2 : 6.1.7600.16385
- Signature 3 : unknown

I tried the folowing operation : 

- Start in safe mode : Always the blue screen
- Restore and old version : Same recovery error message
- Start in command line : always the blue screen. 

Is there any way to restore this computer?

HP/Compaq :: Dv9700 - Reformatting C Drive, Laptop Wont Start

Sep 23, 2009

I recently caught a virus after accidentally typing faceboo k. cm instead of faceboo k. com in IE but Avast was able to take care of it. However, after restarting my HP laptop, I was unable to go into windows and it says there's a problem with startup or winload(I forgot). I used the repair startup 5 times, but to no avail. (I'm not sure if the virus is the cause of my problem).

So, I decided to use the Vista recovery DVDs and reformatted the C drive. I put the CD and HP automatically reformatted the windows partition of my drive. After it's done, the laptop was restarted and a dialog box that says "Software is being installed" appeared and there was a progress bar. But, it restarted again before the progress bar has a chance to complete. And after the laptop is restarted, the system says "BootMGR" is missing please restart using ctr alt del. After I restarted it again, a dialog box saying the recovery has failed appear. I tried this twice and failed both. The details of the error say something about QFE is missing or something.

FYI, the last time I used the Recovery cd I was brought to a blue screen (if I'm not wrong) where I can repartition, delete, or create partitions before formatting the drives. This time, I was unable to repartition or delete the drive, I was brought straight to reformating. And I was unable to use the Recovery Disk in the system; I pressed F11 and nothing happened.
