Dell :: XPS M1710 Black Screen Wont Boot

Apr 27, 2009

When I start up my laptop the Windows splash screen loads but with vertical lines then the screen shows random fuzzy lines and colours and then the screen goes completely black and nothing happens.

At first I restarted and ran in Safe Mode and ran CCleaner which after restarting worked for a short period but then would suddenly go to a black screen and one occasion went to a blue screen with the following message

*** Hardware Malfunction
Call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error
*** The system has halted *** .....

HP 255 G2 :: Won't Boot - Black Screen

Aug 19, 2014

Bought a HP 255 G2 (windows 8.1) to be used with Linux Mint.I know that I have to enable Legacy mode in the BIOS and disable the secure boot. I forgot the last part (disable the secure boot).Now I cannot do anything with the laptop, it is not responding to ESC or F10 to get into the BIOS to correct my mistake.I also have created an USB stick with the BIOS flash, but it won't boot from the USB stick to reflash the BIOS.Have it picked up by HP for repair?

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Start Up Black Screen No Boot

Jan 11, 2015

Dell Inspiron 7720 (17R SE) approx 2 years old, just started having problems about a week ago when turning on the computer. LEDs flash and dell quickset buttons light up; but then process just dies, screen is black and only the LEDs by the power symbol and on power buttons are lit, never reaches the Dell logo screen, no fan sounds or anything.

At first, hitting the power button to turn off then back on and the second time the boot process would work. Then it failed to do that, so I had to remove the battery, pull the power cord and hold the power button down for 30 sec's, and then it would boot normal. Now even that does not work, just have to keep powering down and re-powering and after a random number of times, 10-30 it finally boots normal, every once in while it will work first try. It seems to be getting worse. 

I have used the Dell Diagnostic on boot (though it took many tries to get into the ePSA, that did not detect any problems. When I use the Dell Support Advanced, no problems detected, and I specifically rand the Motherboard (which included CMOS test) and those did not find any problems.

If I put the computer in sleep, it comes back fine. It is only when I shut down, laptop just will not boot until I hit power on (fail) / power off repeatedly until finally, as if by luck it works fine.

Feb 18, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 which sometimes ,doesn’t want to boot.

If I want to restart it  , I’m getting a black screen(without any beep) , and when I'm turning it on ,I must press 20-60 times on power button  and maybe it will work.

In the same time ,I can keep it on,3 4 days ,without any problem.

I discovered that, when I want to turn it on (forced),if I press hard in the middle of the keyboard ,around keys "y /u/i/k/j/h" ,I hear a small sound, and after this its booting.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: R51 Has Black Screen - Will Not Boot

Apr 26, 2013

My R51 was working perfectly and has been maintained over the 8 years it has been with me. I wanted to upgrade my RAM and downloaded the BIOS update and chipset drivers updates.

After powering down I pulled the old 256MB RAM sets from under the keyboard and bottom of machine. I then inserted the single 2GB RAM into the slot under the keyboard and reassembled it.

Black screen/ no boot

Took out the 2GB replaced the 256MB sets and it worked fine for a few hours as I searched out reasons why the 2GB would not work. 'Suddenly the screen goes black and the system shut down.

It will power up (battery light/ status light green) but screen is black and it will not boot. Fan is running and battery charges. I tried hitting F12 and F8 but nothing.

Lenovo G560 B / G Series :: Won't Boot And Black Screen After HDD Upgrade

Jan 26, 2015

Lenovo G560 - Issue with won't boot and black screen after HDD upgrade.
 
 What happen: My laptop was working fine, no blue screen issue, no funny business at all. I bought a new SSD Intel 120 GB and thought it would be good to replace the HDD. I shutdown and disconnected the power adapter, waited a couple of minutes and removed the battery. I opened up the back case and replaced the HDD. And put all the screws back and put the battery back in.
 
Problem: The very first time I turned the power on, nothing happens besides a black screen. I pressed the dvd drive it works and opens up and closes. I waited for about 30 mins and still has blac screen. When I mean black screen, no bios menu, no logo, just a black screen with the fan sound on.
  
I have tried these:
 
1. Unplugged everything - battery, adapter, and pressed the power on button for about 60 seconds, nothing, the laptop turns on with the LED display on for both on and battery LED's. But nothing but black screen, no sound of windows loading just the fan and black screen.
 
2. I tried putting back my old 2.5" and nothing but black screen.

Acer Aspire 7535-5020 :: Will Not Boot / Black Screen

Nov 22, 2014

I have an Acer 7535-5020 that will not boot up.  A few times prior to this happening it said that Windows was not shut down properly - this was right after a batch of Windows updates was installed.Now, it will not start at all. I have tried pressing every F button in hopes of it catching the Bios - we had noticed a few times that it was not set to start from the hard drive and changed it but for some reason it was not holding the changes, we think.I have googled and found that many Acer's (different models) seem to run into this problem and for many, it seems that something called flashing the Bios takes care of the issue. I would like to know which Aspire 7535 model BIOS I need to use as well.  I think there are 2 different models listed.

Acer Aspire 5552g :: Black Screen / Failure To Boot?

Jan 22, 2015

I've now spent many hours of research and troubleshooting to try to fix this issue, both via external sites through google search and here on Acer site.
 
It is the same issue reported many times: Acer 5552g laptop powers on, but does not boot up -I get blank / black screen, fan sound briefly, then idle, and that's the end of. Also, when I do manage to get it going (booting), it seems a totally random event...

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Black Screen On T420s And No Boot

Jun 7, 2013

I have a T420s that I bought a couple weeks earlier, it's a used one, so there's no warranty with it, I used it several days without any issue, I don't use it very frequently as I use my corporate one most of the time.

Someday when I wanted to turn it on, it stacks on a black screen and it beeps one beep then two other, nothing showing on the screen not even the thinkpad logo at startup, I thought it was a RAM related issue so I put the one from my corporate PC but without any luck, so I wanted to see if its graphic controller issue, I plug the VGA cable on the laptop and my TV and here I can see the thinkpad startup logo but after that I see a message on the screen telling :

"Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time settings. Press Esc to continue or F1 to enter setup" and when I press either one nothing happen at all, still stacks there.

Dell Inspiron M501R :: No Longer To Boot Up Its Shows Black Screen And Beeps 7 Times

Mar 10, 2013

My Dell Inspiron M501R will no longer boot up - its shows a black screen and repeatedly beeps 7 times. I understand this means the mother board has failed. The service tag is <ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy> - its waranty has recently expired.

Interestingly, if you google "Inspiron M501R" google suggests "Inspiron M501R 7 beeps". So I'm guessing this laptop has been designed to fail soon after the waranty expires.

I have  written a letter to BBC Watchdog asking how long a laptop can be "expected" to last and whether this would be covered by the UK Sale of Goods Act.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Unable To Boot Due To Black Screen - Preparing Automatic Repair

Dec 4, 2014

My mums computer has ended up in a Black screen "Preparing automatic repair" loop and therefore will not boot :(

None of the repair options work from the boot options etc, so I need the OEM win 8.0 installation disk, so that I can at least boot to safe mode and maybe correct from there once out of the boot loop.

Nov 22, 2014

I've just out my hdd to check whether the ssd will fit there, just checked whether the slot is ok. Then I put back the original HHD very carefully. After that I opened the extra RAM slot, took it out and put it back, also VERY carefully. I didn't harm the laptop in any way.

Then I turned the computer on and it was just a black screen, nothing happening. No indicators lighted up, except for power button. I cannot enter BIOS, no response whatsoever.

Acer TravelMate P453-M :: Changed BIOS Boot Settings - Black Screen

Jan 19, 2015

Laptop still under warranty. I recently had a motherboard and HDD replacement. I wanted to install Windows myself, but the BIOS was set to UEFI, and I couldn't seem to boot off of a USB drive. So I switched it to Legacy, booted from the pendrive, and installed Windows just fine.
 
For whatever reason, I went back to try and change the setting to UEFI. Now the laptop switches on, but refuses to boot. I get a black screen, with no logo or any prompt whatsoever to access the BIOS. 

I read a bit and seems I need to remove the BIOS battery, let the memory clear itself to reset BIOS settings to default, and try again? If it matters, I re-installed Windows 7 64-bit.

Acer Aspire 5552G :: Power Light But Only A Black Screen On Startup (boot Sector On HD)

Dec 5, 2014

I had exactly the same problem with my Acer Aspire 5552G with win7, I tried all things that was online e.g. New battery, Flashing bios, Fn + esc without battery when trying to start the computer and so on.
 
It started now and then and worked perfect but when I shut it down again it could take me up to 50 tries to get it started.
 
The problem was issues with the boot sector on the hard drive!
 
Finally I made an Win7 repair disc and started from.
 
I also checked for errors on the hard drive and it repaired some sectors before starting windows.
 
After that it works like when it was new. The computer was bought January 2011.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Wont Boot

Nov 14, 2008

i left my computer running last night, went to use it this morning, the screen had turned itself off automatically as it always would, but it didnt hibernate (i didnt want it to). anyway instead of just coming to life nomally and the screen flicking on as usual the screen came on, i had about 10 seconds of the computer working and then it locked up completely to the point that the only way to do anything was to hold the power button down, let it turn off, then restart.

the problem is this. since this happened, i cannot get into windows normally. i attempt to restart my machine it works but the dell bios screen which is usually black has lines of what look like green text all over it around the images. same thing for the windows loading sreen.

i cannot get it to boot into windows in anything other than safe mode... it works and is without issues in safe mode (and safe mode with networking) and the display is showing everything correctly in that mode(shouldnt be a physical issue with the display hardware then) but in anything else its totally screwed.

Dell XPS M1710 :: Fails To Power On - Not Even Begin To Boot

Mar 13, 2013

My xps fails to power on, here's a quick history of the laptop, couple of months ago i decided to try fix my dc jack issue, it would only charge holding cable a certain way, replaced the jack but my soldering wasnt good enough so bought a replacement MB and installed.

this lasted around 2 weeks, laptop shut down after battery had ran down even though connected to ac, looked at transformer on lead and noticed power light was not on, bought replacement charger and connected immediatley light on lead started flashing indicating a short on the mb (i think), tried 2 different chargers same result

bought another mb that was fully tested before shipping, installed, when connecting ac the battery flashes orange 3 times then green and continues this cycle, from what i read think this is only to say the battery is bad.

however the laptop doesnt power up tried it with without battery and did the stat drain technique of holding power button for 60 secs etc.

Basically when switching on the power on light comes on for maybe 3-5 secs and goes off again without any fans etc even begining to boot, if i hold the fn key and power it lights the 3 leds on the left, 9, numlock and i forget the symbol on the other led...

could it be the cpu? though it sounds as if the laptiop isnt even getting to stage of checking for all hardware?
