Hi this is the usual title I guess.

I have a problem with my laptop,My son fell on it yesterday and ever since it won't start. It will display the usual and when it has finished with the little green lines moving across the screen under 'Windows' it just goes blank.

I have tried trouble shooting from the start up menu, checking for problems etc and after it has run through it just stops.

The computer was open at the toime of accident, as he fell it slammed shut.

Any ideas?

Not until the last

Did I see that he fell upon it. Until then I was guessing he fell upon it the way a despoiler would.

Sounds mechanical...

But really you should pose this again as a question. And remember to mark responses as helpful if they are.

You subject yourself to probing in unnatural places.

Repost as a Question

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Help!!

First, 'Help!!' may be a usual title, but it's a poor way to get help. the problem with it is that it doesn't differentiate your problem for billions of others. Try a title that gives people an specific idea of your issue; something like, "My kid sat on my laptop".

Second, try reposting this using the 'Ask a Question' link instead of the 'Start a Discussion' one. Your problem will come to the attention of those TR members who live to respond to questions like yours.

Third, can you boot into Safe Mode?

thanks for all of your ideas, I have reposted as a question. Not sure what the absolute definitition of a fall is but as my lad is in heaps of trouble already i thought I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and believe his version of events.
