Have you checked the connections?

Tried a different monitor?

Any error messages onscreen?

If different monitor doesn't help, try booting in safe mode. If this doesn't happen in safe mode, it's likely you've got an out of date video driver, or worse your onboard vga or video card is dying.

Use Bart Pe, google and download, on the pc you're on right now. Save the program onto a bootable CD, then boot into the cd. Use A43 file management utility to move your user.init file for replacement. Make sure the flash drive you're using is connected before you start PE, otherwise it won't be recognized.

Heres a download link for Bart PE: http://download.cnet.com/BartPE-Bootable-L...4-10611131.html

one thing I can add to this, is when you turn on the PC, do you see the BIOS screen?

if you do, THEN the flashing starts, just press F8 many times, before it starts flashing, or whenyu hear the loud BEEP.

You might even hear some BEEPING with each press of F8

if you hear the beeping, stop pressing, and with crossed fingers you will see the safe mode screen

and if that doesnt work, well . . . do you have a warranty where you purchase it from?

or a PC saavy friend? :thumbsup:

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/286122/i-dont-know/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
