HP/Compaq :: Red Screen On Start Up
I'm having problems with my hp DV 9500 laptop. It started 2 days ago, on start up my screen is completely red then the windows logo appears with black splayed around the outside edge. When i'm surfing the net some pages are appearing with red patches but apart from this my laptop is working fine. I uninstalled the drivers for the graphics card and re-installed this made no difference. I hooked up an external monitor and that works perfectly,

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6120US - Won't Start... Blank/black Screen When Turn On
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 have recently acquired an Acer 7220G notebook. Every morning when I switch it on it freezes on the acer splashscreen. I then reboot and it will always load up on the second go.

Dell :: Studio 1737 Green Pixels Just Start Appearing All Over The Screen
Hello i recently received a dell studio 1737 for Christmas and about every couple weeks the screen acts weird,
its like a bunch of green pixels just start appearing all over the screen and wont go away until i either close the laptop or restart. After I do that it will go away for a couple weeks and then it will happen again.
I've been trying to just ignore it and keep thinking it will go away but idk. Has anyone else had this problem and what could it be?
HP/Compaq :: Laptop Won't Start
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.
HP/Compaq :: Nc8000 No Start
my NC8000 will not start. When I push the power button the laptop turns on. The fans spins but nothing comes on the screen and then it shuts off. This lasts for about 10-15 seconds. I can try to start again but it happens over and over. Is there anyway I can repair this. I have noticed it is a common failure but don't know why.
Apple :: Macbook Is Dead - The Screen Doesn't Go Grey The Sleep Light Doesn't Turn On - Fan Doesn't Start
My friend's macbook (white plastic, 2.0, napa/core2 before santa rosa platform) isn't starting, and I have no idea why. He initially asked me to replace the top and bottom casing. I accepted, and ordered the parts. Around the time they were supposed to come, I took the computer apart completely (required for the repair), but one of the parts was delayed, so the computer sat splayed on my desk for a week. I didn't exactly stack textbooks on it, but it also wasn't covered in anti-static wrap. So, now, I finally got the part and put it back together, and the computer doesn't start. At all. The screen doesn't go grey, the 'sleep' light doesn't turn on, the fan doesn't start - nothing. The magsafe light is green, so the power is going in. It's also worth noting that I have no battery for it, so it's all on A/C.
Does anyone know what's wrong? My two hypothetical solutions are (a) I need a battery, or (b) the logic board is dead due to static.
How likely are each of these scenarios - especially the logic board one? How possible is it that it was static overloaded?
HP/Compaq :: Hp Pavillion Wont Start
my 2 brothers were playing warcraft 3 together one on the desktop the other on the laptop. after playing a long game they shut it down for the night. the next day my brother went to start up the laptop and nothing happened. for some reason it simply will not start up. the battery is not dead and he has tried starting it while plugged in.
HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Won't Start Properly
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.
HP/Compaq :: V5000- Cant Get Broadcom To Start
I have a Compaq presario V5000 series with windows xp about 4 years old. It has been running fine on wireless for years until a few days ago. I was getting a code 10 but now it doesnt even appear in the device manager anymore. Also, I still get resource conflict screen at startup. If I hit F1 everything starts up as normally but no broadccom!
Heres what I did so far.

HP/Compaq :: Battery - Laptop Won't Start With It In
I understand you can run off the adapter, But with the battery installed , i cannnot. If i plug adapter in like Iam charging it (not turning power on ) the light in front lights up just briefly then nothing. I also can't power laptop on. If i run the adapter with no battery in laptop everything works fine. What causes that? Just a bad battery? motherboard is new and so is the cord.
HP/Compaq :: Updating Warranty Start Date
So I bought a sealed box 8530w off eBay. Now I know from previous HP business models that the warranty start date on the online lookup tool starts from the day the laptop was manufactured. This hasn't ever been an issue in the past, since I got previous laptops second hand anyway.
But this one is already nearly 6 months into its 3 year warranty. I guess it has been sitting around sealed in its box for a while.
1. Is there any way I can get HP to update the warranty start date? (I'm getting an invoice from the seller as we speak)
2. Assuming I can, will that new warranty start date be reflected in the online lookup?
3. Will the new warranty start date be transferable if I sell the laptop, or will it only apply to me, with my name on the invoice?
HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv9843cl Bricked, Won't Start BIOS
My dv9843cl will not start, refusing to even go into BIOS, even though the screen turns on. This is suspiciously similar to what happened to my last laptop, and I suspect that a faulty graphics chip is at fault. I was playing Team Fortress 2 shortly before it crashed, and it was performing poorly, and occasionally making random colored boxes or random interference appear on the screen.
Unlike my last laptop, however, I'm not sure if there was a recall for the graphics chip, and since I bought the laptop in 2008 from Costco without anything other than the standard warranty, I'm probably not eligible for free repairs, right? -_-
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5z Series- With USB Devices And Start Up
I have had a HP dv5z w/ windows Vista Home Premium - 64 bit for two days now.
1) I have a wired USB mouse that I use since the touchpad is terrible. But everytime, I plug in this supposedley plug and play mouse, there is a message that says device driver is being installed and it takes a few moments before the mouse can be recognized. Is this normal?
2) Also, the day i got my laptop, i had to download Windows updates (the automated message on the control panel said so!) and installed them. I am not sure if its related but since then i have re started my laptop 2-3 times and there is a file check process that happens as a part of the start up and then just before the welcome screen comes, i get a message
Step 1 of 3 - Configuring Updates - Do not shut down your computer.
How long is this going to happen and is this normal?
HP/Compaq :: DV6000t Can't Start Up/charge. Ongoing Troubleshooting
i've had this DV6000t (or dv6500) for quite some time. I believe i've had it since 2007, but really started using it a lot from 2009, running almost 24/7.
Here's the situation: I was playing a bit of Starcraft 2, and decided it would be fun to drop a dozen Terrain Ghost Nukes in an area. For those familiar with the game, you may notice a lot of lag when you do that. I didn't know it would lag like that until my computer abruptly shut off on me. Now nothing lights up except for the AC jack. I checked the vents, HDD, RAM, and other spots that may have heated up a lot, but nothing was really running hot. I'm familiar with how hot my laptop can be; the laptop was just 'warm' right after shutdown.
My guess is that I either:
-Overheated the laptop, which is what anyone would probably expect since HP Pavilions are well known for this, or...
-I may have had a power surge while I was playing.
So, I investigated my opening up my laptop to see if there were any physical damages.
It's hard to see with the blurry picture, but I actually think the chips didn't burn out. But i'm no expert with fried chips......

HP/Compaq :: Troubleshooting A Pavilion Dv-6000 Beeping Sounds At Start Up
Problem: black screen 3 beep at startup
Yesterday, I finished my work and hibernated my computer. When I came back, I could not turn on the computer. It goes automatically to a black screen and after 15 seconds I hear beeping noises. It's one long beep followed by 2 quickly beeps. Rebooting just repeats this process.
I went to the HP troubleshooting page and found this from my symptoms
It tells me that 3 beeps mean module problems. So i ended up testing both my memory sticks in a different laptop and they were fine. And I tested both individual pavilion memory slots, and still got the same 3 beep black screen on both. iif i was to have no memory sticks in, i still get a black screen but a different set of beeping noises, not sure if a laptop can run without memory sticks, but i figured i check)
Has anyone had a similar beeping noise black screen problem at startup?
HP/Compaq :: Dv9700 - Reformatting C Drive, Laptop Wont Start
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.
HP/Compaq :: DV6563CL W/ Win7 64 BitFan LOUD At Start Up Or After Sleep- Maybe Nvidia Driver Related
Laptop: DV6563cl (Intel Core 2 Duo T7300, 3GB RAM, 500GB/7200, 15.4 inch, Win 7 RC 64bit, 128MB 8400m GS)
I recently bought a 500GB/7200 RPM hard drive to my laptop and I decided to install Windows RC 64 bit. Before doing the hard drive update, I had installed the 7 RC 32 bit since it came out.
Now, I can't recall when I had the 7 RC 32bit that the laptop's fan was running on full blast after sleep/stand-by. It is also loud when you start-up the computer from a restart or after a shut-down. The fan speeds down to a quiet speed/rpm after...I'd say 2-3 minutes.
I installed everything listed on HP's website for my laptop (drivers and such after installing 7 RC 64bit):
I noticed that the Nvidia driver on HP's website was not a recent one, so I hopped on Nvidia's website to get a newer driver instead (186.03 I believe).
I have my laptop set to Power saving's mode and I only bump it to Balanced when I'm doing something heavy (like iTunes encoding, etc).
I did check to see if maybe my anti-virus program that's installed (avast...AVG didn't install when I went to 64) was doing scans or such, but it isn't. Well, actually I take that back...does avast do a very slow/quiet scan in the background? I see the HDD status light blinks steady, but when I pause avast, there is not steady blinking.

Dell :: M1530 Has Become Unresponsive, Where To Start?
recently I was using my XPS 1530 under normal circumstances when out of nowhere it started to become unresponsive and internet explorer froze. I had to manually turn off the power and then restarted. The laptop installed some Windows updates and I figured all would be well.
Well, I was wrong. Ever since then my laptop is extremely slow and programs such as internet explorer refuse to start. The problem is worse when my wireless card is active. For some reason all my restore points are gone as well. I dont know if I picked up a virus or if my HDD is starting to die. Most frustrating is the fact that I can't run any diagnostics without the laptop freezing or becoming horribly slow.
So, my problem is I dont even know where to start on how to fix this. My last resort would be to re-format my HDD and see if that fixes it but I dont want to do anything that drastic yet. Any ideas would be helpful seeing as I dont feel like dealing with Dell support yet.
Dell :: Studio Xps 16 Start Up Time
how long does it take to to start up your studioxps from pressing the on button to getting a page(google) open on firefox.
takes me about 1min 2-3sec
but only like 49sec to get logged on
for some reason msn and firefox are slow on start up, maybe its because of 64bit?
Also, stat your system specs.
Dell :: Fan Wouldn't Start On Boot Up
Since I updated the BIOS to A15, I experienced a louder fan. So I turned off the computer and blew out the dust by blowing into the fins on the backside. Lots of dust came through the fan then.
When I turned the computer back on everything was very quiet... and also slow... 'til I realized the fan did not turn on at all!
The moment I recognized that I forced the computer off to avoid damage due to overheating.
Why would the fan not turn on after my little "basic" cleaning? Do you guys experience more fan noise since A15 too?
Dell :: My Studio XPS 1640 Won't Start,
My studio XPS 1640 doesn't turn on. I can only see four touch buttons lit and everything else is off.
The only way to turn them off is by removing the battery and the moment I put it back they turn back on.
Using the AC adapter is the same, they remain on until I disconnect them. I attach a picture to show what I mean.
Dell :: XPS M2010 Start Up Issue

Dell :: XPS M1530 Help (won't Start Properly)
To start off, here is some background information. I've had the xps m1530 since June/July of last year and haven't had too many problems, except the one I am currently having.
The laptop was working fine this morning, but sometime around 2:00pm, it stopped working propely. The internet at my house is retarded and goes on the fritz every so often,
so I restarted the laptop in hopes that it would help (I didn't think it would, but I wanted to try something). Well, when it was coming back on, it suddenly stopped working.
It came to the screen where you type in your password, and when I entered it, it said "Welcome" for like 5 minutes. It just sat there on the login page with "Welcome" as if it were loading, and then after about 5 minutes it went to the desktop.
It sat here for 5 minutes or so and wouldn't allow me to do anything. I couldn't click any icons, or go to the program bar, or do ctrl-alt-delete or anything. It was frozen, but I could still move my mouse around.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Start
Right now I'm posting this from a friend's netbook, for the record.
So, this is something of an emergency. My Studio 1535, as the title says, is not starting. When I first plug in the power cord, the small white light turns on for just a second and then turns off again.
Normally it stays on while plugged in.
When I press the power button, the white ring of light around the button turns on like normal, and the media buttons flash in sequence, just like a normal boot.
Unfortunately, this is where it stops going as usual.

Dell :: Windows Failed To Start Once Again
Last week, I think it was last week, I did some Windows updates. Restarted. Came up with Windows Failed To Start.
So then yesterday I was uninstalling some games that I haven't played in awhile. Defraged after that. Restarted my computer. And it happened again Windows Failed To Start. Put my windows cd in. Got into Windows. After everything was loaded, I decided to restart again. Never uninstalled anything or deleted anything this time. Restarted.
Dell :: Vostro Laptop Won't Start
I have a 15" Vostro laptop, only 2 years old, that won't start. When I press the on button, the first (top) blue light to the left of the keyboard flashes quickly, but then nothing happens. Now there are three blue lights to the left of the power button that are blinking on and off.
Dell :: Latitude E6400 Won't Start
I'm trying to switch out the processor of my E6400. When I put the new processor in and start the computer, the lights blink, sometimes the screen turns on (to black), but the BIOS never loads (or even starts). The computer then turns off, and the caps and scroll lock lights turn on, and the num lock light starts blinking.
Does anyone know what that blinking code means, and more importantly, why the computer isn't starting?
Acer :: 3690 Beeping At Start
A friend has a 3690. Haven't seen it, but this is what they describe as happening.
Sometimes! on startup four? beeps are heard and nothing appears on screen. Turn off/on again and it will most likely boot into Windows BUT the clock is wrong, reverts to July 2005 I think. Reset the clock and all OK, until the next time it happens.
Somedays it behaves, other times not so, maybe doing this twice in a day.
As the clock is wrong does this perhaps point to the CMOS backup battery?
Any other checks we can do?
Would entering the BIOS at start up ? "F2" prove anything. I know it's difficult when its not in front of you.
