\015 Cant get into safe mode with my extensa 5630. I tried f7 & f8 together but to no avail. can u help. I am running vista home.\015

Answers :

The key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode.  The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough.  You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.  \015\012

The screen on my HP pavilion dv2736us laptop stopped working completely out of the blue, with no apparent reason. It was working fine otherwise. I came back home after work to turn it on, and it came on (all the lights came on and the HD was 'whirring') - but the screen was pitch black, just like it is when it's off. Any fixes I can try to get it working again?
