  1. Hello zechariah;

    Have you tested the Hard Disk drive to see if it's working OK?
  2. One thing you can do is use a bootable CD/DVD to see if you can get the system booted.
    You can make yourself an AVG Rescue Disk that won't need a HDD to boot your laptop.

    no unable to load it seems from another friend it could be the Processor Thermal-Cooling Assembly thats broken down
  6. Pink-ish or orange-ish screen indicates a bad bulb in the lcd.

    Does the laptop turn completely off? Or does it stay on and the screen is what goes blank?

    If it's just the screen going blank, considering your description of the color shade, you would need a new screen. Try using an external monitor and see if it boots ok.

    If the laptop shuts off completely, not so much a heat issue that early in the boot. It would need more time to get hot enough to shut off. Could be bad ram? Try using one stick of ram at a time. Could be bad power adapter, is the battery any good?? Several things could be causing it to shut off.
  7. i tried a separate screen no good same problem,i tried ram issue same,battery good,adapter new,so i think its for dell haeven.
  8. thanks for all the help i got an advent now so lets hope this lasts.
