Windows Vista does not illuminate

Hello

My computer does not illuminate. I have a Dell XPS M1530 with Windows Vista. The problem started yesterday when I left my computer unplugged. When I got home, the screen was blank and I just assumed it was gone to sleep. I pressed the power button and the power light turned on for a brief moment, and then turns off again. Then I turned off the computer by pressing the power button. When I tried to turn on the computer again, the lights on top of my computer, such as A / V controls, enlightened to the mode of the normal sequence, the player makes the usual click and the power button lights up for a short while before leaving. The computer turns on then with the fan running and the little power on the front (not the power indicator main on top), but light a screen empty. Thanks to all this, the screen remains empty, including turning point works manually.

By pressing the power button when the computer is turned on gives the same result as the first time, where the main power light on the power button lights up briefly, then turns off again without result. Pressing F8 when starting the computer also does not work. I don't know how I'm supposed to solve this problem, the screen never showed any activity during all this. Help please!

I should note that when I turn on the computer, it would seem she's asleep sleep and rest, as the little light on the front of the computer and the fan turns slightly, while the power led is off.

Remember - this is a public forum so never post private information such as numbers of mail or telephone!

Ideas:

  • You have problems with programs
  • Error messages
  • Recent changes to your computer
  • What you have already tried to solve the problem

It seems you might have a hardware failure, as nothing is displayed on your screen at any time after power on.

If under warranty, contact the manufacturer of your computer.

If not under warranty, contact a local and trusted computer repair Shop (not a type of chain stores to the repair facility).

See you soon.

  • Windows Vista does not start upward, with success since the closure complete

    Hello world

    I actually had this problem for a long time, but I'm just now to a point where I'm ready to take a lead in fixing it.

    I can't identify when it started, but Windows Vista does not start upward, with success of a full stop. He gets to the screen where, in general, the green bars will travel across the screen, but the green bars will not come. The screen looks dim and sits there, with the text of the copyright of Microsoft Corporation. So, after not having on the mound, I have to manually shut down the computer by holding down the power button. When I try to start again, told me to go through the Startup Repair tool. If I jump the repair, I just have to meet the same problem - a computer that will not go beyond the screen "green bar".

    So, I do the Startup Repair, and told me what I do for the restoration of the system. Windows starts normally after the restoration.

    Don't forget, this happens from a full stop. To remedy this, I just never completely shut down my computer. I left running and back just at the beginning of the day. The computer may start restart, it just may not start with a full stop.

    Given the start of repair takes, literally, around 4 or 5 hours of full stops complete, accidental or power outages are a nightmare, I am obliged to wait 5 hours to get access to the computer. Fortunately, I have my laptop.

    If someone has encountered this? I saw people talking about the loop of startup repair, but that's not the point, I have. I have yet to see any discussion of my specific problem.

    Thanks in advance!

    Make sure that Windows is updated appropriately that there have been several USB updates.

    1 check that the driver letters for them, for a player, if the drive of the default drive letter is changed, what is happening.
    Mine was h: I added a device that took H: and the player stopped. So I put it back to H: and the other
    device to J: and everything worked again. If necessary start - type in the area of research-> disk management find top
    -Right-click on it - RUN AS ADMIN

    Don't forget to remember the MP3 must be set to the PSG to sync with WMP, and meteorological service of Canada to copy and delete files
    and update the firmware.

    If no joy follow these steps:

    You may need a powered hub. (all the USB ports on your computer are not powered, often only 2)

    Try these:

    Make a Restore Point

    Control Panel - Device Manager - click in the empty area - VIEW - show hidden devices

    Here, your devices are the MP3 player.

    Now look everywhere EXCEPT the USB controllers for your devices (cannot be found) and if you find
    It RIGHT CLICK and UNINSTALL all.

    now go to the USB and UNINSTALL ALL controllers in the category, but the category itself.

    APPLY/OK

    RESET

    This refresh battery USB and hopefully it will allow the unit to install. (You may need a powered hub)

    Here is the similar procedure under XP, Vista is the same, except that we need clear specific devices, as appropriate.
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/310575

    This is a utility to help you, but do 1 above.

    USBDeview is a small utility that lists all USB devices currently connected to your computer, as well as all USB devices that you previously used. Run Options and check the 1st three choices to see if one is there.

    You must remove all instances of the devices and restart.

    I hope this helps.

    What other security programs you have running?

This is by design and must be accepted by the user.

So I followed the instructions and uninstalled the program first, but one of the applications does not uninstall correctly. I thought I could just substitute with the update and replace. The error code was 2203.

    So I thought it was right after the download all itunes thing, and when I came back to check on the download, the screen turned to this black thing with words on this subject. I decided to force closing down by pressing the power button. Now everytime I turn on the computer, it leads to the screen saying 'windows is loading files', then this blue screen with a very large arrow (the mouse). I tried pressing the F11 key and stuff, but I have no idea what to do. PLEASE REPLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, REALLY NEED A COMPUTER!
