Why is test mode on my computer screen?

All i know is that my computer failed to start and it then gave me the option to fix it .It first failed and asked if I wanted to restore my computer to an earlier date.I chose not to and clicked on fix it again.That time it fixed it as my computer started but it now has the words "test mode" in all four corners of the screen at top and bottom.

Check your boot order, If you find it is on test mode or similar wording, change boot order to hard drive and restart your computer. Dell has a test mode that runs a full test of the computer system when something has gone wrong, I'am hoping this will fix the problem.

if it is only 10months old I suggest you call them and get it fixed under warranty. you have a year from date of purchase. if no warranty just buy the disc if you didnt make the backups when it told you to. When i get these problems its usaully a hard drive but that is what i have experienced

Check and see if the hard drive came loose check the bios to see if it is recognized..It is saying there is nothing with an O/S on it and when you put the disk in it does not register a hard drive to restore..Check the hard drive and start the computer up and see if you can cancel the restore and start the laptop up regular..

You may need to reinstall your webcam driver to your computer to try to fix it.

Windows XP
1. Click start
2. Click run
3. Type devmgmt.msc press enter
4. Look for imaging devices
5. Right click it and click on uninstall
6. Restart the computer
7. It will automatically reinstall the driver

Windows Vista
1. Click pearl button
2. Click start search box
3. Type devmgmt.msc and press enter
4. Look for imaging devices
5. Right click it and click on uninstall

If you have the installation driver, you can try to use that as well.

If that didn't work you may want to restore your computer before that problem occur. Windows Operating system has the capability to restore.

Windows XP
1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. Click System Tools
5. Click System Restore
6. Choose a clickable date where you can restore your computer before the issue began.

My emachines T2698 won't start up. When I turn it


Using the restore discs might not have been so benign; nevertheless, perhaps your machine was off-put by a new piece of hardware (e.g. USB drive, external HD, webcam, etc.) you put on.
Unplug all but the basics; mouse, keyboard, speakers, monitor...and just reboot, selecting Boot Normally and hitting Enter if asked to choose.
For that matter make sure the monitor's plugged in well, clean out the machine with compressed air and a canister vacuum, check that the videocards etc. are well seated...and retry.

Failing that, give some proper detail as to what works, what's unpromising, and what's unexpected.

Unable to restore


You are really not giving enough information to be of good help.

What kind of restore have you tried to do? Have you tried to restore from MS Backup ?
Is this a system restore.?

Anyway, if you have your system restoration disk, install it and fallow the prompts.
Or is you are restoring from vista, type recovery manager and select from the list of items.
If you are trying to do a complete restore, choose that item.

My presario 500 wont even turn on


try running it in safemode and if you have recently added any new hardware or software that may be causing your problem uninstall it while you are in safemode.

As the computer boots press F8 to enter safe mode. If this is successful then everything on the screen will look big, ignore that for now. uninstall anything that may be causing the problem. If you have not loaded anything lately, then while in safe mode restore your computer to an earlier date when you know that everything was working okay.

You can do this by going to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Then choose a date when you know that things were okay and press restore. You computer will restore to the date you selected and it will reboot. If asked to whether you want to start windows normally after the boot then select that option.

I hope this helps
