comment CPU fails to restart during Win7 re-installation
@user8837 if it works in SafeMode, then more than likely it is a driver problem. You reinstalled Windows, but it is failing after reboot because of this driver issue. Make sure you have all latest correct drivers for all hardware installed, you might have to remove any hardware if not needed like PCI/GFX cards. Run it with minimal hardware.

comment Is it safe to resize a partition with Partition Wizard?
I am glad you pointed out that "you must have a UPS to avoid power failures", what with power failures happening all the time within a window of 2 mins to adjust your partition. A lot more chance of power failure than losing your data because you didn't have a backup.

comment BOOTMGR not found
First, make sure it is not trying to bootup to secondary hard drive or removable usb thumb drive. Disconnect all secondary hard drives. Chances are with prior freezes, this is not the problem. Second, shutdown computer and check loose hard drive cables. Third, the problem probably has to do with corrupt and or misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors...

comment Laptop won't boot and screen won't come on
@Michael is the external hdmi a tv or monitor? tv might not be able to display bios screen resolution. Does the external device flicker or try to display something when you power up the laptop at least? Would be very odd both internal and external display ports died at the same time.

comment Laptop won't boot and screen won't come on
@Michael You should be able to see the bios screen on bootup. There is no visual display at all on bootup? Try hitting F2 on reboot to get to bios...you might have fast boot enabled.

comment Laptop won't start properly after I spilled water on my laptop?
look, if it powers on, it's probably fine. if it was gonna "fry" it would have happened already. There is bigger chance you messing something up taking it apart and putting it back together than it frying.

when you turned it on, nothing came on the screen? can you connect another monitor to the laptop? was there hdd activity? maybe it did turn on but the screen is not working.

comment What is Mac OS and iOS compiled with?
Mac OS X is based off of FreeBSD/BSD, and not Linux based (ie Ubuntu/Debian), BSD & Linux are two separate branches off of UNIX. Visual Studio isn't a compiler, but an IDE (integrated development environment ) and Windows (OS )was around long before Visual Studio.

comment RealTek sound card driver not working with Windows XP SP2
hardware ID? give us the make model of card. Does the card even have XP drivers or are you trying to use Win7/Win8 drivers on XP? If you want compatibility with XP you need a driver for Vista.
