Try pressing F8 just before it tries to boot. If you can get to safe mode you may be able to recover the damaged Boot Manager Files.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire 5100 wont start up correctly

I had the same problem after running an update to my Norton anti-virus software. When booting the laptop, press F2 to go to the setup menu. One of the options allows you to change the order that is searched when booting up. I moved the boot from hard drive to the last option, allowing it to boot from a network first (which it doesn't find), then from a portable device second (which it doesn't find), and finally from the hard drive. When I boot up, after it doesn't find the first two options, it boots from the hard drive with no problem.

SOURCE: Laptop does not like to boot, takes several tries

You will probably have to reflash the BIOS, since this issue indicates that the BIOS is corrupted. You can get the BIOS from the Toshiba support site by clicking the link below. Note that this laptop model ships with many different motherboards so you will need to check yours and download the one that matches your board. Attempting to flash with incorrect BIOS may cause irreparable damge to your laptop.

SOURCE: Lenovo T61 Thinkpad not booting up

Hi ,

Did you install any new hardware and after that your system is not booting look at that and also try to check the condition of the memory if any latch or something is damaged.Try if you can log into safe mode as when the system boots press or Hold F8 . It can also be due to system getting corrupted.Also try the Last known good configuration option to see if your laptop functions. for this too press F8 and select and let me know.

SOURCE: I have a blank screen

If the ThinkPad appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem could be the back light. This fault can be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link to determine the fault and fix :-

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the LCD has a problem. You can try to do basic torubleshopoting first by draining the electrostatic charge of the motherboard. Take out the battery then unplug the power adapter from your computer. Press and hold the power button for 15 secs. Put everything back in then turn on the computer. If same thing happened after doing this procedure then you need to contact Lenovo for repair of this computer. The number is 18774536686 then press option 2.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How can i fix missing os or unformatted active partition for lenovo y410?

Have you used this system before successfully?

If so it sounds like you might have a corrupt or missing boot or system file. You'll need a repair disk or system disk to fix it. You need to get to a dos prompt (black screen with white writing) and run the Check Disk command.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Screen is blank (white) when turned on.

Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
Turn off the system. Unplug the power cord from the mains. Keep the power button of the cpu (not the monitor) pressed for 5-6 seconds. turn the unit bcak on and check.

Please reseat the monitor cable that connects to the desktop ensuring a secure connection.
Further, if you are able to see the Lenovo Logo on startup try booting to safe mode by tapping F8 key on the lenovo logo itself.
Howevre, in case you are not even able to view the lenovo logo on startup, then it could be a fault with the lcd monitor itself requiring a repair.

Compouter will not start up. When first turned on, I get the Dell Inspiron screen with the bar under the logo, then the screen goes blank for a second and then all there is is the curser in the upper left...

You can try to boot to safemode. When you turn on system as soon as you see Dell logo keep tapping F8,select Safemode under advance boot option. If you we're able to log in to your account you can try to uninstall video driver and restart the system to normal mode then reinstall the video driver.
If you we're not able to boot to safemode , you can try to connect to external monitor toggle to FN+F8 if still not showing anything might be a bad video card.

I have a problem with hp dv9000.. the operating system wont boot.. even wen i insert any booting disk, it shows the first screen with hp and its logo and then it becomes blank.. i presume my harddisk is...

Try going to the bios and reset the bios to load factory defaults and then reboot. If the same thing happens try taking the hard drive out and reboot, if the same thing happens again its not your hardrive because it would say no boot disk after post. Iam guesing it may be a bios fault because after the logo it goes blank not while loading the os(operating system).

Give this a try and post back your findings.

Black screen will not boot up

First make sure the screen is not burnt out..
When you turn it on, does it show the logo?
If not,either the processor could be fried,or the screen could be burnt, or the screen drivers are missing due to registry problems.

i think your system has crashed so you need to do recovery or do a fresh installation of your operating system. Your system is unable to boot due to corruption in system files.
