No display after switching to a new case

Q: No display after switching to a new case

So I decided to swap my computer's case for a another tonight. I believe everything is hooked up properly, all of the fans are running, lights are on, disk drive opens etc. But, my monitor fails to recognize that it is attached to a computer. I tried switching to another monitor and my TV with no avail. I figured it was most likely an issue with my graphics card so I switched over to the on-board adapter instead but had no luck there either.

I'm using the same power supply from my other case, a brand new 450W PSU. Everything ran completely fine before the switch.

I'm totally stumped as to why my computer won't give off any video feed, anyone have any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Although some cases do not require motherboard standoffs because they are built-in, are they required in the new case and if so, did you install them?

I ahve this boring beige case I've had for years. I was looking around, and seeing I ahve just over 100 savings, I thought I'd treat myself to a new case:
What I wanted to know, was is I bought this near 40 case, would all my current parts fit in? I think my current case is ATX, is there any certain way to find out?

As the title says, I was wondering if it was possible to switch the case of a Dell 537s to a normal sized case. I just got a new full sized graphics card, and stupidly I forgot that my computer was a slim. Anyway, I haven't done anything custom to the computer, so it has all the basic things it came with. I looked on another site somewhere, and a guy said that Dell configures their computers specifically to each case, so switching this model is impossible. I'm hoping to get a second opinion on that statement. If there's any information that's necessary to see if this is possible, I'll post it.

Hi The old front case-fan that came with my generic case was making a lot of noise so I got rid of it It was connected only to the power supply and not the motherboard The new fan I got by Zalman which clearly states quot case fan quot does not have Switching case-fan Solved: a front a connector for the power supply but only a -pin one for the motherboard However my motherboard does Solved: Switching a front case-fan not have a -pin connection anywhere but only a -pin connection which is called quot sys fan quot It s near the front fan of the case or rather where there SHOULD be a front fan and the -pin connector might fit the -pin connection on the mobo but the wire isn t long enough so it s unlikely that it was meant for that Is there a way to convert the connection so it will connect to the power supply instead of the mobo It seems that my mobo just doesn t have enough connections for fans It s a micro atx one and I guess those cases only have one rear fan Thanks nbsp

A:Easy or Not worth my Time?: Switching to a Custom Computer Case

Why pay $400.00 for a processor, motherboard, memory, hard drive, and operating system that you have little control over.






The above is a little more expensive but you have total control, and I'm a little leery about the motherboard but you can choose what ever you can afford and still works with the processor. You'd also have to have a video card too to get this running because it doesn't have built-in video. Any case you really like would be best. Neon usually connects to your power supply. You might want to spend the sound card money on your video card, and go with a cheaper sound card unless you really want the best sounding music, and you have a half-decent sound system to go with it. Planning your new computer usually takes the most time. Installing components into your case can take a couple of hours if everything goes smothly and much more it it doesn't, and yes, most of the time it's just take out and plug back in.

When I power the Pc up everything works except the display, I have no OS as this is a project build.

Basically what is happening is the screen is black but on rare occasions I receive one beep and the post screen appears but only stays on for maybe 5 seconds and goes off again, It will keep doing this in a loop.

I have tried the following parts from my working machine, memory, dvd drive, cd drive, psu, but the problem still exists.

When it does post on the rare occasion, I can press delete and enter the setup and the screen does not flash.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I use my computer as a sometime HTPC. I have display 1 as my monitor in the computer room and I have display 2 as my 42" LCD in the other room. I ran a 30 ft hdmi cable in there, as well as a connection to the spdif.

Now, to switch from monitor to tv I have to:

Click on the speaker icon.
Select spdif
Select 'set as default.
Right click on the desktop
Resolution (or display settings or whatever)
select display 2
click OK
Run into the next room and click OK in 15 seconds or however long it gives me.

I was wondering, outside of using Ultramon, is there any quicker way to do the above. A shortcut or the possibility of building a macro or something?

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

Hello there,

I recently switched from HDMI to DisplayPort as my monitor can handle 144hz, and just ran a test to see whether my HDMI cable still made the display look greyish and it doesn't have that much grey in it compared to the DisplayPort. The DisplayPort is more greyish and I only came to notice it when I switched the cables. What's happened here?

Hello there, I am new to the forums and I've made account here to seek help from the experts about my problem.

I run on a desktop using:
Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 5570
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032mw
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

While using my desktop normally my monitor keeps flashing sometimes and plays the driver "plug" "unplug" sound (well it sounds like it)

Then I go check my resolution by right clicking > Scree Resolutions >>>> Here I see my on the display bar changes after the "plug" "unplug" sound comes from "Generic Non-PnP" to "SyncMaster" and vice-versa.

Please note that the screen keeps running normally on the 1680x1500 resolution on both displays, but the transition between those two is very annoying.

I cannot seem to stop it!

I have installed all newest drivers, and driver for my monitor.

Thank you.

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I just picked up a new HP Laptop and am also new to Windows 7.

Specs are:

CPU: AMD Vision 2.2gHz
Memory: 3Gb DDR3
Video Card: ATI HD 4250
HDMI Out connected to 37" Toshiba HD LCD

My problem is really more of an inconvenience than a problem, but even so I am curious to know if it is possible to have vertical dual-displays. Currently the dual screen is working perfectly, however my laptop display is on the left and the TV display is on the right and I'm trying to figure out a way to have my TV's display be on the top.

Any help that any of you can offer for me to solve this problem would be excellent.

All that being said, I know my way around the OS reasonably well but I'm not well versed in the coding aspects that some of the special features require.

Welcome to Seven Forums Sneakattack879. Try this:

Right click on empty area of primary monitors desktop> Click on Screen Resolution

Grab the primary monitor icon and drag it to the position above the secondary (or visa versa)

Click on apply, the screen will black out and popup will ask if you want to save changes (if you don't in time, it will revert to original settings)

OK way out and you should have one above the other. Also see the Orientation settings dropdown below for any possible settings you'd like to use.

i'm using a Toshiba Protege R700 on a Dockingstation and i have problems in swichting the display from the integrated to external.
Is it really neccessary to press FN + F5 to switch Display when undocking?

My scenario:

Laptop on dock, using external display
Shutdown Windows XP
Startup Laptop
Enter my Win XP Login on Logon-Screen
Integrated display turns black

After that i either have to press blind FN+F5 or dock the Laptop to change setting on my external display.

Hmm? yes it?s necessary to press FN + F5 in order to switch back to internal notebook screen if you have used the external screen previously?

The Fn + F5 switches between external and internal screen... so you have to use this if you want to use internal notebook screen again.

Months ago I downloaded Just Cause 2 from Steam, but I had a few problems playing the game in full screen. I was searching for a solution on YouTube and I found a person who told basically told the viewers to add a new display and use that in order to get the full screen working when playing Just Cause 2. So I did that, it worked perfectly fine, but after I changed back to my regular display I noticed that the icons rearranged themselves for some reason. They rearrange every time I wake the PC up, turn it off/on and when I restart it. This has been bothering me for quite a while and now I believe it's time to fix it. If you look below you'll find a link to the YouTube video, so you can see what I actually did. You can stop watching at 0:40 as the Steam part doesn't matter.

After problems with overheating i decided to get a new case. So I swapped the stock HP Pavilion with a Corsair 400R mid tower.
I was able to get everything in right after lots of trouble unscrewing etc.

I plug my monitor in through a VGA cable with a digital adapter into one of the slots on the Radeon 5770 and while the computer boots, nothing appears on the screen. If I plug the VGA cable into the mobo port, the display works and computer boots with low resolution. I also had some problems connecting the front panel (namely not really knowing how to do it and winging it and kinda getting it), but that might not really be an issue.
Could this possibly be a problem with the video card?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. When I press the power button, the power button light turns amber, I hear some fans spinning, and the CD drive spinning. However, it never gets to the boot screen (or any screen). If I open the case and press the power button, however, the power button turns green and the computer works fine (loads all the way up and functions like normal). If I close the case after it has started, it continues to run fine. I'm guessing / hoping it's not the mother board or power supply that has directly gone bad... but maybe there is a connection or something? that changes from when it's closed to when it's open. I've heard of something like... the motherboard is shorting out by touching the case... but I'm not really sure where to look for that / how. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

hi all ,

i have a desktop

i changed my broken case to a new case like

i removed the HDD and the motherboard and the CD-rom ..etc and installed them to a new case

but when i press the switch button it works normally , and the screen display normally and there are no beeps , but after like 20 second my computer turns off automatically ! ,

what may cause this issue ?

A:i replaced all of my computer components from my broken case to other case

could be overheating CPU. Did you apply fresh Thermal paste to the HSF after reinstalling the motherboard? Is it tight and secure? Did you blow out all the dirt, dust and debris from the fans' fins?

Hi guy's just wondering if it's possible to get windows 7 to switch audio drivers when you switch to another user account.

For eg.. normal speakers device for my personal account and then have my multichannel device (profire 2626) set as default for my other user account 4 studio work.

Atm, if i change it on one account it changes on the other account which is annoying and i'd just like to set default device for each account so i don't have to do this.

Now another question comes up regarding modifying the cooling of my case/ computer etc.

I was wanting to carve two 3 1/2" holes in the top of my case, for two 12cm fans. Now I know fully how to do this, however, I was wondering which direction the air flow should go. Should the fans blow into my case? (Like I suspect) Or should I have them blow out?

The orange highlights are the fans I wish to add. Which direction should I have the air flow setup?

A:Case airflow question before modifying case

I would have them sucking air out. Hot air rises, and the side panel fan will hit the VGA's mb, etc and spread out, also they are right next to the PSU. You wont have any really big difference either in or out , but I would have those two pulling the hot air that manages to make it to the top of the case out. and negative pressure tend to run a bit cooler overall.

thats a nice case but if ur willing to blow that kind of money i would get this its a full tower so lots of room or this this one has some of the best airflow and fan capabilities i would buy this one if u have the money

My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!

I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)

On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)

Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)

I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.

Am I on the right track???

The first set of pictures that you put up look like classics examples of bad video RAM. In a desktop PC I would tell you to swap out the video card with a differnt one to verify that is the issue since in a few cases bad drivers can cause the issue but it's highly unlikely. Professional service by a local non big box computer shop is your best bet at this point.

This happens as soon as the VGA adapter is plugged in. Unplugging it does not turn the laptop screen back on. Toggling with the function keys does nothing. Since I cannot see anything I cannot try to adjust/correct display settings (or do anything for that matter, other than turn the laptop off by holding power key down).

The second display works (tested with a different laptop).

History: The external display worked fine with this laptop. We had a power failure yesterday which turned it off. The screen toggled to the laptop successfully (or I did, with the function keys--I don't remember) and I continued working. When power returned I started running into this issue. I reinstalled the display drivers from the original manufacturer disc but the problem persists.

I cannot adjust the brightness of the display at all in Windows Seven - it doesn't matter if I use the FN+Up / FN+Down keys, the brightness option slider bar in Windows, or adjust it in bios.

Anybody know of a fix for this?

Dear guys,

I have a Tecra R850 laptop (the graphic card is an AMD Radeon HD 6450M) with a PA3916A-1PRP port replicator.

I already have a 23" running at 1920x1080 connected via HDMI.
I would like to buy a 27" to run it at 2560 x 1440.

So my ideal configuration would be the 27" at 2560 as main monitor and the 23" at 1920 as second monitor. One monitor (the 23") has Display Port, DVI and VGA input, the other one has DVI, Display Port 1.2, Mini Display Port 1.2, HDMI.

Is it possible to connect them as I wish (I would love to avoid the use of VGA)?
Do I need other stuff (another docking for example) to accomplish that?

Any idea is good for me!

Thanks a lot


A:Tecra R850 with 27" display at 2560 x 1440 and 23" display at 1920x1080


Generally speaking you may be able to connect two external monitors at a time depending on your notebook model.

In user manual of Tecra R850 you can read that when the Toshiba HI-Speed Port Replicator II is connected to the notebook, you cannot use _notebook?s_ external RGB (VGA) port.
This port will not work.

Furthermore you cannot use port replicator?s HDMI port and Display Port at the same time.
The hi-speed port replicator II contains a slider which can be moved to choose either the HDMI port or Display Port.

So it seems that you have one option to connect two externa monitors: (VGA + HDMI)
one monitor to HDMI/Display port and other to VGA/RGB port (port replicator's RGB port)

Another option to connect two external monitors at the same time, you should use another docking solution like for example Dynadock U3. It supports an HDMI and DVI port which can be used at the same time.

I recently hooked up a secondary monitor to my ati 9800 XT, and its crap!

It's a Goldstar Stuidoworks 76i monitor. I have a dvi-vga adaptor and a regular vga-m/m cable. the problem isnt with the dvi cause if i plug my good monitor into the dvi adaptor, it works well and the 76i is still blurry.

the problem is if i change the resolution to anything greater than 800x600, the picture gets very fuzzy, and unusable. i've tried lots of different freq. combinations, and tried changing the colour as well. i looked all over for drivers for the monitor but i didnt find any for XP, i found something that was basically colour profiles, i loaded them, but they didnt change anything.

am i forgetting something? or is the monitor just CRAPOLA?

thank you so much for your help!!

-:evil: satan.

A:Fuzzy Secondary Display? 9800XT dual display issues.

Well since you checked to DVI adapter with another monitor I say your monitor is going bad. How old is it? There might be a label with the year on it the back. I have seen this happen to monitors only old 3 years old but usually it monitors older than that.

Other signs indicating its near death is a high pitch whine at higher resolutions or max brightness and contrast.

Tell us what you find.

Recently the backlight went out on the wifes&#8217; laptop display. Thinking that I was pretty smart, I picked up a replacement on eBay.
What came out of the laptop is a 15.0 XGA Samsung with a part number of 5F4G64512F.
What I ended up with (my own fault) was a LG Phillips LP150X2 XGA Display. The cable is different, however it still plugs into the video card.
So I figure ill give it a try any way.

The display only displays on two thirds (left side). See Signature for system info. .

What should I do? I&#8217;m lost.

Tonight I was playing a good old game. I minimized to my desktop while the game was running and pulled open Windows calculator, did some calculator stuff, but then the computer goes into a blue error screen and then restarts. A few moments later, the display on my monitor suddenly turns off as if it were put to sleep. And even if I turn it off cold and restart the computer, nothing appears on the display at all, not even a BIOS logo screen. So weird.

System specs:

I have a minidisplay port to hdmi cable, which I can plug directly into my computer and then into the TV. I use a Macbook Pro, and when booting on Mac OS the wire works perfectly well, however when switching over to windows 7 the image is very weird it's very grainy, with lots of red dots and lines going through the image, and the image is also always flickering. I've altered every aspect resolution, tried every possible combination of hrtz and also updated the graphics driver. Yet still no difference, can anyone possibly explain to me why this is and if theres a solution. Thanks.

Hi there,
after a RAM upgrade my PC has developed a display problem. The graphics are slow / rippled and video playback is very poor. In device manager no "display" option is present and there is also an error mesage referring to the VIA CPU to AGP2/AGP3.0 controller not having enough free resources to run? I've tried downloading the latest graphics drivers (Radeon 9500 and XP HE v2002 SP3) but this fails saying components are missing?

In display properties there is no information except that Windows is using VGAsave?

Help, this is driving me mad!

So I was installing windows xp on a dell 4300, I was basically done when suddenly the monitor went black and said it can't display the content (dell E207WFP), anyways, I tried some other old 15" dell monitor lcd, same problem. I am repairing the installation now, but I have no idea how to fix the problem if I can't see the screen. I have other computers at my disposal, but since I have no idea how far along the setup is (it is close to done, I think just setting up the accounts left). Please Help!

A:Installing windows XP, Display cannot display content

I work as a support analyst at Dell headquarters, and saw that you could possible use a hand.

Are you using onboard video on this system, or does it have a video card? Can you see the Dell splash screen when it first boots up? If so, hit F8 a few times as soon as the screen goes black from that to see if you can get into safe mode. If you can, you may have a driver problem.

Worst case scenario is a blown video card. If your other systems have video cards as well, you might swap video cards with this one and see if the problem follows the card.

the display/monitor uses the generic driver for display and it is 1024?768 or 800x600 but it looks very odd it should be bigger because my screen is bigger. I have a acer monitor but is there something I can download to fix the display size?

A:display/monitor 1024768 display size

first, have you installed the drivers for your video card?
if you have then you should be able to change the resolution to the native for your screen. If it will not let you report back and we can explain how to force it to the proper resolution. Also please follow the link in my signature and fill out your system specs.

Godd afternooon all,

I have an HP Pavillion DV9000 (Windows 7 Home Premium 64x from Vista) with a Nvidia Graphics Card. At one time I was running dual monitors but out of the blue, my main laptop screen stopped working. The backlight and inverter are fine. I have an external running from the VGA and that works fine. Last night all of a sudden for some reason while trying to troubleshoot the issue, I went to the display settings and bam, I was able to use my main laptop screen (displayed as: mobile pc display). While I was making some other simple changes to my laptop I had to restart and now it isn't working anymore.

1. Is there a way to make the Mobile PC Display option a default?
2. Since Windows refuses to give updates for this model, how can I update all of my missing drivers for windows 7?

I just purchased a Dell XPS 410/9200 computer and separately bought a Samsung 941BW 19" widescreen LCD display whose native resolution is 1440 x 900. The computer came with the NVidia GeForce 7300 graphics card and the Windows XP Home Edition operating system. When we tried to follow HitSquad's advice to PaulInAustin on 12/14/2006 there was no "Add" button in the window for screen resolutions and refresh rates.

Samsung technical help tells us to call Dell, and Dell tech support seems clueless about this problem. With all the widescreen displays being sold, surely they've addressed this issue!

A:Setting Display Resolution For New Widescreen Display

Hi fishinswede, welcome to BC.There should be a driver disc for the monitor itself that came in the box. Did you install it and is windows identifying the correct monitor model?And just so we're on the same page, you did also first uninstall the old drivers then re-install the upgraded drivers (forceware 93.71) for the video card itself from the Nvidia link here?You may also wish to try a somewhat older version here. It's the one I still use because it's the most stable I have found for my system.The only reason I can see that the add button wouldn't be there is that the monitor is not being identified correctly, either because of the driver or the monitor itselfIf you have done the above and have another monitor laying around, preferably a crt, temporarily hook it up and see if the "add" button is now an option. If it is, add the new resolution settings then hook up your new monitor. It's a long shot but worth a try. You also want to start in a lower resolution then the one you're trying to add. Bump it down to an ugly 800x600, then see if the add button is an option. You should altimatetly end up with a menu resembling thisLet us know what you come up with.

Hello Everyone,
I have Dell N5110 which had recently Display DIM issue.  I have contacted the local repair store, they've diagnosed and said it had issue display IO controller and needs to be changed.
They've replaced it and display was working fine for few weeks. After few weeks, I had my battery changed as it's health was in bizarre state after running diagnostic test and it prompted for replacing the battery. 
I have new battery installed and the display started flickering. The battery is original one as I have purchased it from dell store. I want some one to help me out in fixing this issue. 
I have installed Windows 10 recently, could that be a problem. If nothing can be fixed by troubleshooting, please help me out with nearest authorized service center so-that I can have the laptop checked once.
Thanks & Regards,

A:Dell N5110 Display Flickers and DIM display

Attach an external monitor.  Does it display a good image, or also flicker.
You might also want to ask the shop that did the repair what a "digitial I/O controller" is -- it sounds like they simply dismissed you with a techno-babble term.

If that title makes any sense But heres the predicament im in I recieved a working well sort of dell inspiron that housed the Samsung LTN P -L LCD display The notebook had been dropped and they tried to have it repaired before parting ways with it I didnt ask what they replaced because i didnt think about it really but looking at the case and the lcd brackets the lcd should have shattered like the metal brackets Testing display made a notebook for display the not on a was did So i now assume they replaced the LCD or its one tough screen So im thinking it might be the inverter board and the screen may be fine if not new i mean if so its going on ebay anyway i need to test it but my only means of doing so would be to hook it up to a Compaq Presario C the shitty ones that shipped with vista also free My concern is will the presario power inverter for the screen over power this Testing a display on a notebook the display was not made for display I cant seem to find anywhere what voltage the Presarios display and the Inspirons display run at as for the connections they are all the same i e video input and power The main difference i see is the one is just SXGA and the Presario s is WXGA this all came up when i was diggin through a box of laptops and found the presario and the inspiron screen i love boredom Thanks for any help nbsp

A:Testing a display on a notebook the display was not made for

My concern is will the presario power inverter for the screen over power this display...

no. Inverters are very, very specifically designed for given systems... and rarely can be used on anything but the lcd for which they were designed.

You can try it, but you might blow the screen or the motherboard... then again, you might not. But even if nothing is damaged, the inverter sockets will likely be different... and the screen may be way to bright or disappointlyin dim.

My date/time display is set to show the time in 24 hours instead of 12am/pm hours. I do not know how to change it. Changing the internet time doesn't help and there doesn't seem to be a way on the clock. I used to have am/pm displayed. How can I change it? Also, can I have the date displayed with the time on the taskbar?

A:Task bar display-date/time display

I had mine changed to 24hr once because of a malware, hope this is not your case! Assuming everything its fine, this is how you do it:

This tutorial will teach you how to change your system time from 24 hour to 12 hour.

First of all, Click Start and then click on Control Panel.

In the Control Panel (And this is with the Category View) click on Date, Time, Language and Regional Options.

After clicking that, click on Change the format of numbers, dates and times.

A box will pop up, click on the Customize Button next to the drop-down menu of formats according to their country.

Another box should appear. Click on the Time tab. If your system is already running using 24 hour time, in the Time format box there should be HH:mm:ss.

The two Capital H's make the clock use 24 hour. To change this, replace the Capital H's with small h's. So, you should have changed the format from HH:mm:ss to hh:mm:ss.

Now, that's fine and dandy, but you might want it to say either PM or AM at the end. To make this happen, add two small t's at the end of the format. So, the format code should now be hh:mm:ss tt.

Click on OK. And now click Apply in the Regional and Language Options box, and then click OK again.

Hopefully your time in the system tray should be in 12 hour.

I had to reinstall windows 7 on my acer aspire 5560g laptop, I installed the drivers on the Acer site. I found the legacy updates for my cards and installed them. And I am still having problems.

The monitor is not showing the native resolution of 1366 x 768, it's topping out at 1024 x 768, it's refusing to let me use the built in screen savers. It's supposed to be a duel graphics system and the device manager lists two under the display drivers. Both are listed as standard vga display. One with the little yellow exclamation mark. It's driving me nutty. Can someone help me?

On a side note, the slider for screen brightness has also gone missing, and the fn brightness control doesn't work either.

A:XP Keeps switching off

It could be a hardware problem, but we should start here:

Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.
Click the Advanced tab and in the 'Startup and Recovery' section click Settings.
In the 'System Failure' section check these boxes:
'Write an event to the system log'.
'Send an Administrative alert'.
Uncheck the 'Automatically restart' box.

Go to Start => Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" {without the quotes}

Look under Applications and System for any Errors (with the red cross icon) at about the time of the failure. Double-click on these for more information and a hyperlink (in blue) to a possible solution from Microsoft's database. These error messages often don't help much, but can sometimes give us a clue. The more essential information is the EventID, the faulting module, file or process, the Error Code from the blue screen. If you're still not sure, click the double-page notepad-type icon which copies the error information to the clipboard. Paste into Notepad and/or into your next post. If there are many Errors, collect them into one Notepad .txt file and attach it to your next post.


Create a minidump crash log

Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.
Click the Advanced tab and in the 'Startup and Recovery' section click Settings.
In the 'System Failure' section check these boxes:
'Write an event to the system log'.
'Send an Administrative alert'.
Uncheck the 'Automatically restart' box.

In the 'Write debugging information' section, select 'Small memory dump (64KB)'.

The next time you experience a crash, the computer will blue screen, an event will be written to the Event Viewer, and a minidump file will be created.
The minidump file(s) are located in C:\Windows\minidump. They are dated - month-day-year. You can attach this folder to your next post. If possible, zip it first.
