SOURCE: safe mode

The safe mode on Sanyo VCRs locks out the buttons on the machine. Try using the remote. To turn off the safe mode, look for a button on the remote labeled "Safe."

You need to do a recovery using the recovery console. There is an option during startup, if you are running XP or later, to press F11 for emergency recovery.

Press F11 and choose the option to recover and backup.

This will backup all files and programs currently installed on your computer.

After the recovery process finishes, you will have to go through the process of setting up your computer, like you did when you first bought it.

After you are all setup again, it is a good idea to create recovery disks under the 'Start' menu, 'Recovery' option.

You could try turning the computer off at the switch when this happens. Sometimes it is a very temporary problem. You would need to wait a few minutes then turn it back on and restart your computer.

SOURCE: the laptop wont start, just getting blue screen

If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up towindows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way tosolve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cdor dvd to installwindows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windowsalready exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.Whenthe Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

ifnot then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can eitherenter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you powerup the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press inorder to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Oneswindows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, theyare at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acerhttp://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all otherbrands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to theright place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

SOURCE: Blue screen on start up

We need to clarify. Your couldn't be running Leopard 10.6 because that's Snow Leopard which doesn’t run on Power Mac G5s.

So assuming its just ordinary Leopard 10.5, have you tried firstly unplugging all USB and FireWire devices, leaving only the screen, keyboard and mouse?

Resetting PRAM does almost nothing. Have you got a Leopard DVD somewhere you could start up from?

Blue screen brightness sign on the screen cannot reduce


Sounds serious! Reset your laptop by holding the power button down until it goes off. Reboot and press F8 to start in safe mode. There are plenty of clues as to what to do in the help files.

I prefer Google as my home page, but somehow Amazon keeps popping up. I have tried to keep making Google my home page and Amazon does it again. Please HeELP.


Hi,

This is usually because of a toolbar under name CortonExt but it usually manages to return after you disable the toolbar in your browser and uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Try booting to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key repeatedly at boot time until the menu appears and selecting Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode uninstall Corton from the Control Panel and then open your browser (if you have more than one do this for all) and from the Tools > Addons section disable CortonExt, if you get the option to delete it then please do so.

Open Computer and delete the following folders if they exist
C:\Program Files (x86)\Corton\
C:\Program Files\Corton\

Reboot back into normal mode and reset your homepage. Let me know if it comes back.

I have lenovo g550...my screen flickers in every 5minutes...


Failing Inverter An inverter, typically found inside a laptop computer, consists of a small board, which has impregnated electronic circuits stamped on it. Inverters look like thin boards about the of two sticks of chewing gum. The inverter and its bulb control the intensity of the liquid crystal display, which lights the screen monitor. The computer can control the output voltage of the inverter and either lighten or darken the screen. A special type of inverter can adjust the brightness of the screen by using an internal sensor to judge the room brightness, and then adjust the screen accordingly. Failing inverters give off some specific warning signs, which can be recognized by observing different screen characteristics.

Short Intermittent Display Upon turning on the laptop, the screen flashes on in the normal mode for a short period and then blinks to black. A very faint image appears in a dark background, which will be very hard to see almost invisible. After shutting off the laptop and restarting, the same mode occurs, where the screen appears normal for a few seconds then fades to black. This condition points to a failed inverter. To confirm this, plug in an operational external monitor; if the external monitor functions, the inverter has failed. b> Total Blackout with Ghost image b> The laptop turns on, as indicated by the power supply button, but the screen comes up black. The screen comes up black after restart. You might be able to detect a very dim or ghost-like image on the monitor. When you plug in a known functioning external monitor, the external monitor operates normally. This mode of display indicates a failed inverter. b> Long Term Periodic Operation b> With this failure mode, the laptop screen illuminates normally upon start-up and remains that way after several minutes, hours or even days, until it goes very dark again. Brightness controls or restoration attempts do not work. Most often, the screen will function normally with a computer restart, but will eventually return to black. Faint ghost images might appear, as seen in the total blackout mode. b> Dark With Color Variation b> Upon computer start-up, the monitor shows black or dark gray, accompanied by very faint images. The screen might have an intermittent color change, or remain on with a non-standard color variation, like pink or red. b> Auto Control Switch b> If the screen appears black, with no faint or ghost images, look for the lid switch near the back hinge. The switch, when depressed with a closed lid, shuts off the computer and monitor functions. Sometimes the switch becomes stuck in the closed position, disallowing the computer and monitor to turn on when opened. Pushing the switch manually several times can often free it up. If the switch tab has broken or jammed inside the case, it needs replacing. b> Loose Connection In this mode, the display looks normal upon start-up, but tapping the side case of the computer turns the screen black. More tapping results in the screen functioning normally then cutting out again. This condition points to a loose wire connection from the inverter to the LCD backlight lamp, or the video cable. The connectors can be accessed by removing the monitor bezel screws and pulling the plastic retainer off. Both connectors can be cleaned and refitted.

The screen is extremely dark on the e620, how do you adjust the screen brightness


Look for the symbol on the keyboard, usually on f4 and f5 that looks like a sun, it will be stamped usually in a light blue or purple color. Hold down the fn key which is to the left of your keyboard and use the F5 key or brightness symbol with arrow up to brighten the screen. If the screen still does not get very bright, it may be an inverter or and LCD Issue.

On Startup of my Panasonic CF52, It shows the blue Panasonic screen, then the windows loading screen, then it goes into a bright gray colored screen. It doesnt do anything more. Tried to restart and hit F8...


This is usually a problem associated with NOD32 or Cisco software conflicting with drivers or other software. If you can get past the grey screen even once, uninstall the software and reboot. If you can't get past the grey screen at all, then you might have to completely reinstall windows :(.

I'd look for professional hands-on help in this case if you're not comfortable doing this.
