I'm trying to fix my grandmothers laptop for her. Her mousepad stopped working and now the screen is frozen. I tried to unplug it from the wall and plug it back in, I pushed ctrl alt del, windows, esc, F1-F12 and nothing worked.
I now have it at my house and its still frozen, however I now have a message on the screen saying:
"The last attempt to resume the system from its previous location failed. Attempt to resume again?
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)
Continue with system resume
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu
Its highlighted on the delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu, but its frozen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Have you tried entering the BIOS and running the Toshiba hardware utility?
BIOS can normally be accessed by pressing F2 as soon as the laptop is turned on.
If F2 does not work you may have to try Esc, F1, F12 or Delete key.
I set up my laptop this morning, downloaded security, Office etc., no problems. Went to get a drink, came back and screen is almost black with stripes running up it. It won't respond to anything. Can anyone advise me as I am currently £1000 down and not happy. This is the first HP I have owned so not familiar with the forum. Thank you.
The Forum is a peer to peer chat board basically where non-HP employees try to help other end users. It is not a substitute for warranty support. We would need the product number or model number of the laptop and also do you know if it is under warranty? Sounds like a significant hardware failure that is going to take intervention by a technician.Read other 9 answers

Having a problem with our Dell Laptop. It all started with getting blue error message screens after computer was on for awhile and seemed to be running normally. Later, the computer would not even boot up, and would immediately go to the blue screen with error messages. I was planning on trying to post some of those errors here to try to get help since I had no idea what to do. Now, the computer will not move past the screen with the Dell logo. I have posted it just so you know what I am talking about. When I was actually able to see something besides this screen, there was an error message that said a certain file was corrupted, and that I may have to use Windows setup disks to repair the file. I do not have any disks, the computer didn't come with any. Our other computer that I am using to post this didn't come with any either. The computer in question is running Windows XP, service pack 3 (I think) Thank you in advance.

I am using a HP Pavilion laptop with Windows XP home.
I usually leave it on. Today I did that. When I returned home from work, the screen was dark. When I ran my finger around on the pad (It doesn't have a mouse. I don't know what it's called. There's an area where I control the arrow by running my finger around on it), nothing happened.
So I pushed the power button. It said it was going into hibernation. I pushed the power button again. This time the screen lit up, it went through its start up routine until it got to the screen where you can select the user. At that point when I tried to select myself, I couldn't get the arrow to move. It was unresponsive.
I turned the computer off and then back on again but it didn't help. I can't get the arrow to move.
Can you help me? Thanks.
I would advise buying a mouse. No kidding
I have an Acer Aspire 3036 which is a few years old and been used a lot - it belongs to my brother in law...
the screen is frozen and flickers (then freezes again) when you move the lid (screen) , the graphics go all funny when you try to move the lid and get it on then when you stop it just freezes on whatever was on the display....
I think this just needs a new screen ? am i right?
The first thing I would check is the cable. I've seen quite a few situations where the cable from the motherboard to the LCD panel either comes a bit loose or cracks. Moving the screen/lid up or down causes the ribbon cable to flex and if the connection has come slightly loose (even a small drop can do this sometimes) or is cracked and making intermittent contact. It COULD be the LCD panel itself but could be a simpler (and cheaper) issue like the cable.

I was just browsing when my laptop went to the blue screen of death - this was about two hours ago. It reported the DPC Watchdog Violation error, however rather than carry out a memory dump and reboot it has been frozen on 0 percent complete. I have disconnected it from the mains, and even tried to switch off with the power button, but no change. I have looked into the error, but cannot find a solution to my issue. I would be worried about removing the battery and I'm not sure about what data I have saved on my desktop.
I am using Windows 8, which was pre-installed on purchase. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L70-B-119, which I have had since December 2014. Microsoft Community did not help as one of the community moderators did not answer my question regarding a blue screen freeze on the watchdog error message. I am getting stressed about this.
Quite frankly, the stuff on the Desktop that hasn't been saved is probably lost.
Even if it's recoverable, the cost will be expensive, and the recovery may not even be complete.
Please hold the power button down for about 30 seconds. This should force the system to reboot.
If not, then remove the power and the battery, wait 30 seconds, then plug the power back in.
The system should attempt to boot.
If you're not able to get back into Windows, please let us know how far the system gets when booting.
Also, you can start with these free, bootable hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
If you are able to get back into Windows, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/

This morning, my laptop seemed to be working fine. I was on it for about half an hour but once I got home, and waited a few hours before using it, I went to turn it on and all it displays is a gray screen. This gray screen is smooth at first, but slowly deteriorates to a display such as this: Laptop Display Example I really can't do anything else because this screen appears right after startup, and blocks me from using it any other way. If you look close to the deterioated screen, you can see tiny dots of different color. Buttons such as the wifi button, brightness levels, and the capslock still function. The screen will brighten or darken, and the lights on the other two keys turn on and off normally when clicked. This upsets me because I have only had this laptop for about two years, the warranty is finished, and I've had so many issues with this laptop from the software to problems with Windows 8. I didn't do anything to damage the screen, and no one comes into my room who could have damaged it. Also, I have tried removing the battery and removing the charger ( which it can't run more than 10 minutes without ) and letting it cool down, but when I turn the laptop back on, I recieve the same response. My laptop is an HP b011nr, at least that's what it says after 'model' on the bottom of my laptop. Bear with me, I'm not much of a computer person.

I have a Samsung laptop (not sure of the model), and the screen broke months ago. Since then I've been using an external monitor without any issues until today. When I start up my laptop I can never see anything displayed on the external monitor until the log in screen. The monitor will always go into hibernation mode until the log in screen.
However, today it's taking longer to start up and I cant see what's going on. At first I thought windows was performing a disk scan but i waited over an hour! So that must not be the issue. I want to find a way to display what is happening on the external monitor if possible. I have been endlessly searching all day online for help. I would really appreciate any help/advice.

I used a Samsung NP300E5A-A02UB laptop for over a year through an external monitor, ever since the screen broke on it. Never had any problems with it besides that. Until one day I, not thinking about it, shut down my PC through holding down the power button, because it was being too slow, couldn't even shut it down normally. But little did I know, doing that would make sure I can't use it again, as far as I can tell. Because I shut it down using the power button, I'm assuming the screen came up, the one either to repair or tell me the pc shut down incorrectly, or bios, or whatever it is. But since my external monitor doesn't turn on until after my pc is signing in, it won't turn on. Normally it would just kick on automatically when signing in. So I'm completely blind to what I'm doing and can't get my monitor on. Literally all I need is a sneak peak at it to get it to turn on all the way, but I don't know how. I've tried a few things already, that I've found online, but never though to ask about it til now.
I've tried doing the little closing and then quickly opening up the laptop screen to fool the pc into turning it on.
I've tried manually unplugging my screen, in hopes it would use my external as a primary instead.
I've pressed the appropriate F key, or combination keys to turn it on.
Possibly other things, but I forget, it's been a little while.
All of these with no luck.

My computer doesnt load up, doesnt progress any further than the Gigabyte utilities splash screen. I cannot open the CD drive, and pressing the keys on my keyboard does nothing. However, if I press the caps lock before turning my computer on, THEN the green light on the caps lock appears. Pressing the hotkeys, such as TAB for access to the BIOS, or F12 for utility program does nothing.
To give some background, I had been playing a game and had a tv show from the internet running in the background.
My system was running slow, and then seemed to have totally frozen. I waited 5 mins for it to resolve itself. It didn't. I tried task manager, and Ctl+Alt+Del to no avail.
I then, in desperation turned the power off at the mains.
PPS: I have left the computer for approx 4 hours to see if it was just running slowly. Sadly, no such luck.
Since then, I cannot even access Windows or anything.
PS: This is a desktop computer I am referring to.

This signifies a hardware problem. When you power up the computer can you press the eject button for the CD drive? Does the tray open? Does the light on the CD drive light or blink? on the Gigabyte screen can you enter Setup (Bios) usually by pressing the Del key?
If not, then shut down the computer and unplug all drives (CD/DVD, HDD's, Floppy etc) and start the computer. Can you get into the Bios? If not, then you may have a failing Power Supply Unit. Try testing with another.

If it was setup to allow Window's Remote Desktop or some similar third party remote access, you can use that. Otherwise, I think repairs or another laptop are called for.

I have a nice laptop with a broken LCD screen.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Most laptops have a set of keys to press to enable the external monitor output. Usually it's FN at the bottom of the keyboard and one of the top F# keys - look at the pics on the keys for the right key or check the manual.

We had finally gotten a computer (laptop) last week (which husband had to fix first ) to be able to do some work for someone. Just got it up & running 2days ago and while at a friend's, someone stood it up next to a chair, and it fell over & actually broke the screen (looks kinda like you swiped the screen with a few different colored paintbrushes)! Due to a wildfire in August, we are very short on money so we will probably have to try to find a screen on craigslist or something. My question is Is there ANY other models that are apt to have the same screen or that can be easily used? If so, which ones are apt to be compatible or, if you don't know, how can I find out???

I have a problem regarding a broken laptop screen, nvidia drivers that failed to install and a system that now doesn't output via it's own hdmi port. Yikes.
The screen was cracked some time ago, but hey, modern Laptops (the model in question is a Gigabyte Q1732) all have hdmi out, so I procured a good screen and continued to use the Laptop.
However, during a recent system and disk cleanup one of the tasks I had set myself was correcting an issue with my graphics driver that was using the default on-board as opposed to the nvidia GT540m that it was equipt with. I took the opportunity to uninstall the intel driver and the subsequently install the nvidia driver before restarting, as the switch over did not work on my previous attempts. That was probably my biggest mistake.
The nvidia installation failed, prompting restart into safe mode.
The hdmi port no longer outputs and so, with the broken screen, I can't see what I am doing to try and fix anything.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit.
Could I set up remote desktop? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

My brother in law dropped his laptop, which has resulted in a cracked screen and damaged plastics. Having replaced a screen before I ordered a new one, and have fit it, but alas no joy.
Before I go and pull the laptop to pieces I thought it would be a good idea to ask for some advice. Here are a few key points;
1. The replacement screen is brand new, and has had all its wires connected. There is no display on the screen. There was no display on the old damaged on either, I though the fall had damaged it completely.
2. The rest of the laptop works fine, I have hooked it up to a screen via the VGA output, and everything works fine.
3. When I right click and select properties>settings , it only displays the external monitor, no mention of the LCD.
So what do you suggest? I was thinking about pulling it apart and seeing if the LCD cable was still attached at the "other end", any thoughts?
Loose connections is all I can think of, mainly because all the other parts are obviously working (with the external monitor).

Any body out there have experience replacing a laptop screen? Don't have any problem replacing the screen but I'm not sure if it's worth doing. The laptop was given to me with the screen broken. When I plug the power cord in and turn on the unit, nothing happens; no beeps, no lights, not even a sigh. I'd hate to buy a used screen, only to find that the rest of the unit is fryed due to the obvious fall that it took. Any suggestions?
Well, I sure wouldn't do anything about buying a screen until you're sure that's the only issue. If it doesn't do anything, I'm guessing that more than the screen is gone. Since a most likely better new laptop can be had for as little as $400, do you really want to sink money into this one? Start your shopping here:

I aquired an Aspire 4720Z laptop that the screen had been stepped on. I removed the screen (smashed on mid right side), but before removing (and after), I connected it to 2 different monitors--nothing appeared on either-black, power LED just blinks on/off although the computer sounds like it's working, lights come on, hear the drive , etc. I tried Fn +F8 and all other suggestions I could find, nothing. The laptop screen shows zero, not faded, nothing.Vusually, the inverter looks OK, no signs of anything else. Any suggestions as what to check/how to check while i have the screen off, what's next? --failure with the other 2 monitors bothers me.
When you hit the Fn+F8, did you wait a few seconds, then hit the combination again?
Make sure there isn't a small pin poking through near the hinge area above the keyboard that may be stuck (from being stepped on). This pin activates a switch when the lid is closed. (Some systems use a different method.) If there is a pin, be sure it works freely, is not stuck.
If the system was closed when the LCD was stepped on, it could have suffered damage under the keyboard, the video section of the motherboard, perhaps.
IMO Windows is huge pain when dealing with more than 2 screens. At work I have 3 screens and occasionally when I take out my laptop from docking station, it messes up the settings. Takes 5-10 minutes get it back to my original.
But that is not my question. At home I have a cracked laptop screen that no longer works. I have connect this laptop to my tv and am trying to use it as a htpc. My issue is I have not been able to find settings that disable the laptop screen, and for windows to ONLY use my tv as primary screen. The reason I need to disable the laptop screen is that when I have my laptop open (I need this to use the keyboard/mouse of the laptop), the tv screen is OFF (windows is thinking I'm using the laptop screen that is dead). Essentially I'm in a situation in which if I want to use laptop/keyboard, the default setting is the laptop screen. Right now I have to get the laptop lid closed, but barely open it for me to use the touchpad/keyboard.
What I'm looking for...
-Registry setting or permanently way of disabling the laptop screen.
-Permanent setting that always defaults the tv monitor instead of the laptop screen.
-I'm only going to use XBMC (windows to boot directly), and would prefer not to have setup the settings every time I turn it on.
-If above is not possible, anyway of setting Windows to think the lid is always closed?
There is a switch in the laptops bevel, short it to have always closed , check power options to see if that helpsRead other 6 answers

Ok, so I received an older laptop from someone, a Gateway NE56R43u. So the screen is broken....a big crack in it, can't see anything. It needs to be replaced and I plan on doing so when I get money, but until then I'm trying to see if anything else is damaged. I'm using an external monitor, but it only works when I get into Windows. I can't get a picture in DOS or even get into the BIOS. So when Windows comes up, I can see everything...through the external monitor that is. I went to upgrade it to Windows 10 and everything seemed fine, but it's either stuck on something or it's a part where it's not in Windows yet and needs some sort of manual input, but I can't see anything. The external monitor isn't showing anything. The monitor I'm using is an old Lite-On LCD. I'm using a VGA input. Again, works in Windows, but it's stuck and I can't see anything. Any ideas on how to get it back to where I can see it again? Thanks.
Does the laptop have an HDMI port?
If I use an HDMI cable, I see the BIOS on the tv. Strangely the laptop stays black until Windows has completely loaded.
I want to install either Windows 8.1 or Ubuntu on my laptop (Samsung R519) via USB however I cant because my laptop screen is broken.
When I turn on my laptop, my monitor doesn't display until it gets to the Windows 7 login screen. However I have forgotten the admin password meaning I cant nothing.
By chance is there a way to get to the boot up screen to boot from my USB?
If you have the boot menu enabled in the BIOS you can probably press the F-12 key to get the boot menu.

I was putting my laptop back together after trying to fix the power fixture when the ends of the very thin black and red wires from the screen broke into pieces. Now I can't plug the wires back onto the motherboard. The piece that broke off was about 1/4" x 1/4", a little white connection piece that the very thin black and red wires were attached to.
I don't want to buy a whole new screen or whatever that part is that the red and black wires are attached to... just to connect these wires.
Do you have any suggestions? The ends of the red/black wires look like they have solder on the ends - see the picture. If I knew the name of the little white connection part, maybe I could buy a replacement part and try to make due.
Please help... don't want to buy a new screen...
Thank you very much.

Our laptop screen no longer works (thanks to my son peeing on the computer!!!). We were connecting to our TV monitor via HDMI, but after my wife downloaded Windows 10, everytime we attempt to connect to the TV or any other monitor, we get a "no signal" message. I am computer illiterate, but I was hoping some knowledgeable people here would be able to assist.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000. However, the problem is that the screen's dead and I can't see for love nor money anything on it to be able to connect a TV screen to it to be able to use it as an external screen. The machine itself still works, the screen's just on the blink. I have NO idea what keyboard commands I'd have to use to blindly connect the TV to the laptop to make the TV turn into a computer screen. I have one cable attached to both the TV and the laptop, but do I need another? I think the cable I have right now is a VGA. Would you help, please? It's really important.

Try cleaning out the cooling vents with compressed air, you can buy it in cans if you don't have access to an air compressor.
