Preferred Solution: PC booting but not displaying

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.)

So my pc has been working for a year and out of nowhere it just stops booting up usually when it boots up I hear hardworking fans and a beep then my display turns on but now it's just silent fans and my gtx970 lights up and fans go but no boot up. It isn't my display so that's out of the question and I've done testing to see what the problem is I unplugged it held the power button for 30-seconds to a minute and the first time I did that it turned on and was fully working but I turned it off later and tried turning it back on and it doesn't work again so I redo the power drain and it doesn't work even after letting it rest. So then I try unplugging my graphics cards pci cables and plugging them back in and that worked after 3trys of doing that and turning it off it doesn't turn back on and so then I try checking my ram sticks in diffirent orders and with one out at a time so I finally get it to turn on after removing the first one and leaving the rest in so then it boots 2 times in a row and I thought I figured it out but nope it hasn't booted after that and I don't know what to do it seems it's just by chance if it turns on. (Sorry for typos it did this on my phone)

Laptop is not booting up. It is restarting again and again. Problem started in following manner.
-First while using laptop my keyboards stop functioning.
-Second When I restarted It starts normal but stopped accepting inputs from keyboard and even Window Virtual Keyboard.
-Third I tried reinstalling windows, When I tried to install it from pen-drive(bootable pendrive). It is not booting. It is restarting again and again.
Can any one help me on this?

A:Laptop is not booting. It starts booting but restarts before it gets boot properly.

First thing to do is run an extended (NOT just 10 minute) diagnostic on the hard drive.  If you need further assistance, post the results of that (numeric error codes) along with the full model information - i.e., Inspiron N5110, XPS L501x, etc.).

Press F12 a few times immediately after powering on to get into the diagnostics.

Hi,
I just got a ASUS G75V series and updated it to windows 7 professional with Intel core i7.
I was able to work with it and everything was fine until I had to install XP because some softwares are not compatible with Win 7 x64.
I have Win 7 on drive C: and windows xp on drive E: which in windows XP environment it is shown as drive C: again(I have two HDDs, 500GB each).

So as you can predict I tried using the dual booting and followed the tutorial for that on the website, I wasn't able to get it to work exactly and each time I had to change the bios settings to boot either win 7 or win XP,

I downloaded easyBCD and was trying to get it to work but my silly mistake was I Reset BCD configuration under BCD backup/repair tab and ever since I haven't been able to load windows 7 and the laptop directly loads windows xp.

I ran easyBCD in windows xp and tried to fix the problem by adding the bootloader for windows 7 there but nothing seems to work.

I am really stuck and I can not reinstall windows 7 because it is set up with all the softwares for my work

A:Issue booting Win 7, booting directly into XP & no boot manager

It sounds like you have the OS's installed on two separate HD's, and were booting them correctly via the BIOS - setting preferred one first to boot in BIOS setup, then booting the other one using the one-time BIOS Boot menu key.

To restart Win7 unplug all other HD's, Mark the 100mb System Reserved (preferred) or Win7 Partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

Once Win7 starts, plug back in the XP HD and boot it using the Asus F8 one-time BIOS Boot Menu key, or install EasyBCD to Win7 to add XP on its Add OS entry tab.

I am trying to help a friend. Her computer would hardly boot yesterday, but after 10 minutes or longer, it would load. Programs hardly run and if they do are impossibly slow to run. Windows task manager keeps popping up. It won't close. We tried to set the registry back to an earlier date, but it won't take. My guess is that is a virus. She had AVG anti-virus running now it won't run either. Any thoughts? Any reliable online site which could scan the computer?

Hello there, occassional lurker, first time poster, hopefully someone here will be able to help

I've been setting my laptop to dual boot xp pro, and Ubuntu on a seperate partition. All was going well, until xp decided to die altogther. I don't have that error to hand, but it's gone a little further now.

Was going to install xp pro on a 3rd partition, and it started up fine. Now I can boot fine to Ubuntu, and the 2nd version of xp. However, the original xp is still having issues.

Now, when booting up, gets BSOD - bad_pool_caller. Code at the end is: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007,0x00000CD4,0x00000060,0x86F7E1FC)

Everything I've read suggests this is talking about a hardware or software conflict. However, I've not installed any new hardware. I suspect there is a software conflict between the two versions of xp, but I can't see how that can happen.

I can boot into the 1st copy of xp in safe mode, however, explorer.exe fails to start up. Tried running it in task manager to no avail.

I forgot to add - I am using GNU GBRUB to boot between the 3 operating systems.

EDIT 2: Tried it again to boot 1st xp in safe mode - new error for windows product activation - a problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the licence for this computer error code 0x800004005

Recently I purchased a laptop with windows 8 64 bit pre-installed in it. For my job purpose, I needed windows 7 32 bit. After searching the web and also using the information I got from this site, I disabled secure boot, deleted the recovery partition and converted GPT partitions to MBR. Then I shrink the Big partition in which windows 8 was installed to make room for the windows 7 partition. Then I created a new partition and installed windows 7 on it. After this whenever I switch on the computer, a message come up, saying that a required device cannot be found and windows is to be repaired. The only way in which I can start windows is to go to bios, select the boot options and then select boot from notebook hard drive.

Can anybody please tell me how this problem can be solved

A:Booting problem with dual booting with windows 8 and 7

when you created the new partition did you make itin front or behind the existing partition?

If your boot manager is looking to boot Win 8 on Disk 0 Part 1, and you created the new partition in front of Win 8, your Win 7 will now be located on Disk 0 Part 1 which is where the boot manager is expecting Win 8

can you send us a screen cap of your disk management?

I have a SONY PC (RX-580) and it is not booting on an erratic basis. The first problem was after pushing the start button, the fan starts on high speed, but no activity light and no HD light came on at all. AFter 1.5 minutes or so, I rebooted after removing the power cord for 30 seconds. This happened 8 times today. I should mention that during this time, nothing comes on screen at all. There is no opportunity to get to the CMOS settings or even to boot with a floopy. (yes this still has a floppy drive in it.) Normally, for the past several months, this problem has simply been an inconvenience and after 2 or 3 tries, the unit boots up fine and works fine all day. Today, when it failed to do this so many times, I shut it down, opened the case and proceeded to reset all cables and connections. I didn't notice any loose connections. I didn't remove ram sticks. I then rebooted and this time, I got the HD light activity for a few seconds, then the fan slowed to a normal level as like everything was going to be okay. After a few minutes, the activity light was still lit, but no flickering like something was happening.

I turned the machine off again. I should mention that each time I turned the machine off, I didn't have to hold the button in for the normal 5 seconds. It turned of immediately.

I once again, inspected and reseated cards. I did not remove RAM sticks. This time, I plugged in and booted and right away, got a 3 or 4 second solid warning tone, follow... Read more

I just got a new laptop with windows XP and cannot figure out how to display the desktop on my TV. I got an S-video cord and connected them and went to settings/display/advanced and tried to click on TV but it says not connected, so I restarted and it still didnt work. How do I get this to work?
 

A:Displaying on TV

its hard to say without more information.

you may just need new drivers.

some laptops and video cards, have to have the tv hooked up to the laptop as it powers up so it will detect it.

some laptops you actually have to turn on mirroring or choose the output in the bios.

most newer laptops however have a special key, usually a secondary or 3rd based key. (you have to hold FN or some other key to hit them)....you know what i'm talking about the stuff written in a different color above the keys. This key changes from normal display to mirroring. my key says LCD/TV.

all laptops are different. maybe give the book a quick scan. or give post the model # of laptop and type of video card and i will look for more information.

So my brother's just moved and after connecting his PC back up, he can't get Windows to display on his LCD VGA monitor. The Nvidia graphics card (FX5600 I think) has a composite TV output and that's working so he can see the XP desktop on his CRT TV but that's the other side of the room so tricky for him to do much using that.

I got him to boot into Safe Mode and still it only displayed on the TV. He managed to right-click the desktop and click properties and could see two monitors, with only one enabled but he was unable to change this being in Safe Mode. After rebooting it was still only on the TV and he right-clicked on the desktop and there was an Nvidia option he selected but apparently that only gave him some options for the TV settings.

The monitor works fine as the PC displays POST and the "Windows needs to check your drives" screen OK, it's just once Windows has booted he has no picture. In Safe Mode, I got him to check Device Manager and as well as the Nvidia driver there's the LogMeIn mirror driver and a Mirage driver (I think we installed that for VNC) but they've been installed for ages and it was working fine before the move.

I installed a backup XP on there for him, so he's currently trying booting to that to see if that displays on the monitor. If not, I've told him to remove the graphics card and plug into the onboard VGA. Even if that works, it won't have all his software installed and he hasn�... Read more

Hi there , May the Forums be with you!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.  I understand that your computer seems to be booting up, but there is no display on start up. I am happy to help with this. Since you have already verified your display, did you also test both graphics cards in the other system to be sure they are both good as well? Normally I would recommend that you start with this document:  HP Desktop PCs - Computer Does Not Start (Windows 10,8), and you can still do Step 1 and 2. Step 3 from your description, should send you to this: HP Desktop PCs - Computer Starts but Monitor Remains Blank (Windows 10, 8). Just follow it through. Some of it you have already done, but read through it carefully and try everything else. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi I have a IBM Thinkpad A30p and a 19" LCD TV with PC VGA port. The laptop runs 1600x1200 and I use VLC to watch films. Just bought a 19" lcd tv a few months ago and with having the PC VGA port thought it would be good to watch films off my laptop through it.

However when I plug the cable in and do Fn F7 the resolution drops to 1024x768 and when i play the film it plays fine on the laptop but on the screen where the film is playing its just black, even though everything else displays ok on the tv.

The strange thing is once or twice when I have tried this it comes up on the TV as 1600 x1200 and you can see that the film it is playing ok, I hvae tried all possible combinations to get it to do this again without success. I have tried plugging the cable in, in different combinations in case it had to see the tv first or something but nothing. All I know is that when I Fn F7 and the resolution drops down, that the film will not display on the tv.

Cheers

The website is www.hillcrestnh.org On my computer at work I messed with the Internet Explorer Option settings and then after restarting I was able to bring it up. Then the next time I turned the PC on again later that day I am unable to get it again. My internet provider is unable to fix the problem. Does anybody have any ideas? I am assuming it is a setting but have no idea which one. Any help would be appreciated. We are running XP PRO on a networked system with Windows 2000 Server.

I have a user that says when she is using Word or Outlook (98) on Windows 95, some of the text is displaying on top of each other. The lines will sit half way on the line below it. Does anyone know what causes this and how to stop it.

Thanks.
 

A:Text Is Displaying On Top Of Each Other

1. Bad line spacing in normal.dot and email.dot

2. Bad video driver

3. Bad printer driver

4. Using Wordperfect fonts (like Univers or CG Times)

Just to get you started....

I have a PC without AGP or PCI-E slots - only ISA (and it's a P4 - Kinda odd) it's a Gigabyte GA-8I845GB. Anyway, the monitor has stopped displaying. I swap monitors, same problem. I changed the slots, on the pc, same problem. I put the screen card in another PC, works fine. Seems to point to some sort of MB fault in my opinion, but can't narrow it down without a screen - Any idea's??

Well, recently i didn't touch my computer at all.. everything was working good. Then one night, i was on ventrilo talking to my clan. Then my mic stops working So then, i go and check if it works on my brothers computer, and it does ! So i run back to mine, make sure it is plugged in right, check the settings on the volume, control panel.. make sure the mic is on.. i even try it on the voice recorder, and still! doesnt work! so i dont have a mic for a day or two. Then later i look inside my computer, and unplugged some blue things that were on these spikey things, and put this old part that has an audio and microphone port, it didn't work so i unplugged it. Next thing you know.. my audio goes down. I turn off my computer, i plug the little blue things back on and then my audio on one speaker goes on. I go back.. plug them in different places.. then my audio works and one speaker. So i try once more and it detected everything! exept for my dvd drive :/.. so i turn off my computer after my clan scrim, and go back and try and fix it. But then, everything quit displaying on my monitor. I know it isnt the monitor cause iv tried 2, i even tried 2 video cards.. So i am not sure.. iv even plugged everything back to normal. Any suggestions?
sorry if the typing is alittle odd, im on a labtop :S

I know that this topic has been discussed and I have tried every fix from resetting my IE settings to running:

"Please try this:

Click Start =>Run, type in CMD, press OK.

Copy and paste this into the Command prompt:

netsh winsock reset catalog

Press Enter

Then copy and paste this in:

netsh int ip reset reset.log

Press Enter.

When finished restart your computer."

I have also run sfc /scannow, thinking that might solve the issue but nothing has worked for me. Firefox is fine but IE simply wont work. I know that the problem started with a malware infestation that I got rid of but now the browser wont work. I have tried everything I can think of and nothing has worked for me. If you guys have any other ideas please let me know.

No one has any ideas? I have uninstalled IE8 and nothing, re-installed it, nothing. I have tried to reset the browser and have also released and renewed my ip as well as the steps listed above. If anyone has any idea what else I can try PLEASE post it.....

So i recently changed my theme, and attempted to change the explorerframe, but failed. NOw, i have this strange problem where neither the navigation pane or the navigtion bar show up on various occasions. this is usually when:

1.) I am uploading something to the internet such as to imgur.com or attatching something to an email
2.) When I am navigating to a file inside of a program

Here's what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/FwWiT.png

Notice the difference between the regular explorer and the messed up one. I can't navigate backwards in the messed up one.

Here's a picture of the program i used to change it in the first place (Windows 7 theme manager):

Note: I already tried to fix it myself and managed to mess up my explorer and had to do a system restore. not pretty.


If you guys have any tips then they would be much appreciated!
Cheers, Yort
