No idea what happened...

Recommended Posts

Not sure how this even happened, but, we had to unplug our computer to install a new surge protector. (One of the really nice ones they recommend) All that was done was, computer was turned off, unplugged, re plugged back into surge protector. Went to start it back up, computer goes on, the monitor flashes it’s usual, then goes to black with the flashing underscore. I tried all the troubleshooting things I could find on the web, YouTube, etc... can’t figure it out. My last resort is a total reboot. But (haha of course) my backup disk is no where to be found. Tried to go in through the ESC startup menu to make a new system recovery file/disk, and everything I use, tells me it’s incompatible or not enough space (which is bs). So now what? I’m at a loss and quite frankly, exhausted. I’ve been at this for 7+ hours and my brain is fried. If anyone out there can Help me in anyway, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Nothing but a black screen.  I found someone to take a look at it.  They managed to salvage the hard drive. They went through every trick they knew, but couldn't get it to come back.  The hard drive was taken out and given to me to get all my things off it, then wiped. Ended up having to get a new computer. @Steve K.

      Hello,i've recently encountered a problem with starting my Laptop(lenovo Ideapad100).2 days ago,it suddenly froze while i was watching a video so i ended up doing a hard reset.Now,its permanently stuck in a black screen after it tries to run automatic repair.I have tried plenty of the solutions suggested by other people such as hard-resetting it 3 times(apparently this is a very common solution but it
      wont trigger the menu for me) before it shows the lenovo logo but this doesnt help at all since it wont let me access any safe booting menu of the sort.
      I cant access Bios or anything.I have already tried pressing all the keys during the normal start before it goes into black screen mode but none of them trigger any sort of menu.I also installed and mounted a windows 10 installer on my USB but the laptop just ignores it and wont let me choose any option either.
      I'm quite desperate since i have some important files in this laptop.Sorry for my awful english and thanks in advance.

      I changed the resolution in Windows 10 and now I cannot get into my computer as the screen is black and says D-SUB out of range 99.3 KHz/60HZ? Does anyone know what I can do? I tried going into safe mode but could still not resolve anything!

      Hi,
      Today completely out of the blue my computer screen turned black and wouldn’t  boot up. I’ve been mashing buttons for about an hour and nothing has worked. I’ve been turning it on and off again but all that happens is that it turns on to a black screen. There is no cursor. I can hear my computer fans but nothing comes up on the screen. I’m on Windows 10. Any help is much appreciated!
