I'm more of a desktop user but my husband gave me this laptop on January 2007. Since then, I think I only used it for less than 20 hours (we don't have a wireless)... when we got out of town.
The last time I used it, about a year ago, it turned off by itself. I tried to use it again when I got home but the screen is just blank whenever I turn it on. What could be the problem? I don't think it's a good idea to send it for repair to HP as the warranty expired already.
when I turn it on, all the blue lights turn on... but the screen won't therefore I can't use it. Ealier, I hooked up an external monitor but didn't work. Could it be an LCD problem?
The notebook doesn't have any scratch or whatsoever. It still looks like new, yet not working.
I keep on trying to switch it on but the power button doesn't work but it shows only the single blue light that indicates its charging each time i plug it. I really don't know what could be wrong but its really sad because i have lots of important things on that PC,.....
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?
I have a little problem with my Acer E1-570.Yesterday I turned it completely off for the first time (I have been using sleep mode before), and when I tried to turn it on again, nothing happens.Power led is on, and HDD led flashes once, but after that it does nothing.I can hear fan spinning for few seconds but after that it's complete silence inside the computer.
I have pavilion dv7, so far I had no problem. Now, when I login it logs in but then instead of showing me the home screen, it goes into blank black screen. It has just started to happen and I hope there is another way to make it work without rebooting the whole system.
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 *** .....
It use to get hot quick and I was neglected to maintain it well for about 5 months as I have so many other things to take care. It is now getting very hot too quickly.
Now it started giving me problems on starting the computer.
On each re-boot it is behaving weird.
Sometimes it shows 6 login screens and screen will have images shrinked having test blurred out. after couple of restarts its prompt me to repair the windows After I repair; it either starts normally or again comes back with 6 login screens. Even it starts again normally it won't stay more than 30 mins and it automatically shutsdown and restarts with 6 login screens and prompts me to repair the window again. it is keep happening
I contacted HP customer support, but since it is out of warranty period they couldn't really helped me but mentioned to me that it may be a problem with the mother board or video card. But I believe if it is a hardware problem it should behave consistant
What I am thinking is a heat problem with a corrupted OS. But not sure. Any body have any idea how to get out of this problem
my laptop configuration is :
Intel core 2 duo 2.4 g hz processor 4 GB RAM ( 2x 2GB) 250 GB Hitachi hard drive Windows Vista Business 32 Bit OS Nividia Gfx card with 64 MB viedeo memory
I know hp doesn't support windows 7 on their dv2500 models. I figure i can install it, 7 will find most of the drivers automatically, then I'll have to search for a couple on my own. Any of you install 7 on a 2500? I'm guessing i can just take drivers from the dv4 or another similar model,
i'm having a issue with my santa rosa mbp. I left for dinner and left my notebook on. Naturally the machine went to sleep. After i came back the machine would not boot up, the screen doesn't even turn on. The light on the latch release remains on. When i try a hard reboot, i'm having the same issue. Black screen, doesn't even get to the grey screen with the apple logo. I've tried going on 1 dimm or ram to see if it's a issue with the ram and still doesn't fix it.
When powering up I get the Acer screen for about 10 sec and then black screen. Immediately before this there was a Windows update for the graphics card, if I remember correctly. I have tried hard power down 3 times but on the 4th time I do not get the message "preparing for automatic repair". I am unable to get into Safe Mode.
my laptop is dv2500 and for e past 2 days, my display driver has been giving me a lot of problems.
at times, the screen would just go fuzzy and i won't be able to see anything so i have to power off my computer. at times, the screen goes totally blank and the computer restarts itself. when it does restart the screen stays blank and i have to shut down using alt+f4. at times i'll just get a BSOD for nvlddmkm error. and at times, the screen will go black and then return with the message "the display driver stopped responding and has recovered". the screen was fuzzy but i still did manage to make out that message.
i rolled back my driver to the default drivers that came with this laptop and after that, e screen has only gone blank once only to come back again totally alright 3 secs later with the same "display driver recovered" message.
this only started happening like 2-3 days ago but today it happened like atleast 5-6 times within 6 hrs. so i was wondering what's really the problem? i have searched around for people having this problem but their problem isn't as unique as mine. for them, it usually happens while playing games. for me it happens anytime, like during normal usage or whatever.
Lenovo G560 - Issue with won't boot and black screen after HDD upgrade. Â Â 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. Â 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. Â Â I have tried these: Â 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. Â 2. I tried putting back my old 2.5" and nothing but black screen.
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.Â
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.
I have an Acer 7535-5020 that will not boot up.Â 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.Â I think there are 2 different models listed.
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. Â 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...
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.
My laptop will not boot up, just get the 7 beeps and a black screen. I have done research on this issue and it seems to be an ongoing problem with this laptop. If this is the case, this should be taken care of by Dell.
Xps m1530 with windows vista . When I could boot the laptop after a while it then shut off. I did run diagnostics, all passed. I run virus scan - all ok. i updated all drivers and now can not get pass the black screen.
I was using my HP Pavilion g7 the other day, while gaming and the screen went black for no appairent reason. Â i haven't down loaded anything recently and i run virus software. Â Â We went to the HP support web site and went through several diagnotics. Â When the laptop is rebooted the screen on the laptop will flash images of my desk top but once the machine boots up the screen remains blank. Â you can see the glow from around the edges but that is it. Â I have another monitor plugged in currently and the system is functioning propertly except for this. Â We have also done the following, hard reset,Test for memory modual problems, test the hard drive. Â I was also trying to update the video drivers but the system tells me the drivers are working properly.
Just installed Visa 64 , everything went fine , but every time i boot into Vista i get a black screen with a white cursor in the top left have corner flashing very fast and it does this for almost 60 seconds and then Vista boots normally.
I have tried unplugging everything from my Mac , but i still get the same problem.
It looks like Vista is wating for something then it gives up, I have not installed any software only the bootcamp driver.
Anybody know what is wrong, I had Xp on previously and did not have this problem on fat32 , Vista only works on NTFC if that makes a difference.
