In Safe Mode run System Restore to a earlier Date

In safe mode, Go to Start\Run type MSCONFIG press enter. Now write down all the things having a Tick under Startup Tab. Remove Items that may be stopping it. If you still cannot get to windows put the tick back until you find the one if any that is doing it

I wonder if anyone can point me to the right direction to obtain a service menual for the above laptop. I have gone to google and done a search and all i get is a user menual. I am trying to find out how to open up this perticular model because the power point jack is loose plus half the screen functions and not the bottom half has no dteails - just blank. I have connected the laptop to another screen and the full screen comes up, so I gather the actual screen may need replacing (I think). So if anyone knows whrer I could get hold of a service menual, would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like the Graphics card, take the Side of the Comp and check to see if the Graphics as a Fan, and it's turning. You could also try refitting the card it may have worked out a bit with heat. Turn Power off at wall to do above

PS also PSU can give these symptoms. As in safe mode there would be less demands on the PSU

Try disconnecting the hard drive cable see if it shows a DOS screen when you boot. Like Text to Enter Setup Press xxxx
