Preferred Solution: HELP! Desktop turns on and restarts repeatedly, other turns on to black screen

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.)

A: HELP! Desktop turns on and restarts repeatedly, other turns on to black screen


Desktop 1:

Do you see anything on your screen at all while this is happening?

Have you tried to press the setup key to see if the BIOS will come up and make changes?

Do you have any USB devices (other than keyboard or mouse) hooked up? If so, try disconnecting them and see if it will at least POST or attempt to go into the OS.

WARNING: Before checking the capacitors, disconnect the power cord on your system and press & hold the POWER button to allow the power to discharge! Also, you should always ground yourself before touching computer components to prevent static discharge!

Just FYI, some of the motherboards in this series of HP’s have issues with the capacitors.

You should take a look at the capacitors to see if the tops of them are raised or discolored. Also, if you put your finger on the top of the capacitors, they should feel as if they are INDENTED and not flush or raised. Raising or discoloration (up to and including a black tar looking substance on the tops indicate a leaking capacitor).

Desktop 2:

Any POST sounds (beeps) produced at all?

Have you tried the monitor from Desktop 1 on this one?

Anything at all displayed on the monitor, to include CHECK CABLE message?

Recommendation: Open the case again and ensure that all the cards, memory, drive cables and so forth are all connect properly and not loose or dislodged.

Do you know how to RESET your BIOS to default using the onboard jumpers?

Here is a detailed link on troubleshooting this issue:

well last night my computer was working just fine, I shut down, went to bed, woke up today and turned on my computer where it restarted after about 2 seconds, the screen didnt even get a chance to turn on. I have unplugged all the connections in the back and replugged them in, i have open it up and cleaned all the dust and removed all the hardware and replaced it all again to make sure there wasnt a part that wasnt fitted correctly. I managed to get it get all the way to windows once but my keyboard wasnt working so when i tried rebooting to get my keyboard working the same problem came up now i cant get it back on I am pretty sure windows xp has nothing to do with this as it cant even get the screen on before it is restarting

Hi ShikariAtryao. Welcome to TSF!

This could be a number of issues. Bad PSU, intermittent RAM module(s), bad device in your system, etc. If you have more than one RAM module, try removing all of them except for one and try booting again. Make sure that the one module you use is in the correct slot as well. Step through that process exchanging RAM modules until you've tried them all and see if you're able to boot.

You could also disconnect devices such as your CD/DVD player (both data and power cable) and try booting again. It's basically a process of illimination. Also check the power cable to the motherboard and such.

One other thing is to check the little cables that connect usually to the edges of the motherboard. One of them is for your HDD, one if for the POWER LED, etc. There are usually several of them. Make sure they are all seated correctly as well.

Good day!

I have a Dell Inspiron and it seems that they are the worst that have the problems. It is a vista and a year and a half old. Before it died/crashed it would turn black. In the light i could still see the programs running and it just faded the screen. I tried setting the hibernation to never and turning off screen to never but it still fades to that same blackness. I cant even see properly through it and i cant do anything to turn it back to it was before.

I rebooted it to the factory edition but it still does the same thing. Please help!

I have an external DVD CDRW drive that keeps being added then removed added then removed. That is all that it does. You know how Windows XP does. It plays that little two tone sound each time a device is added or is so annoying. I cannot use the drive as it does not stay "added" long enough. I am stumped...I have never heard anything like it. Have you?

It also might be a cable issue. Inspect that cable or try a new one and or another USB port. If you have it on the front of the case try it on a rear USB port. I've seen machines where the front ports carried less power than the rear ones.

Hello I've come to hopefully find a solution to a boot up problem I'm having with my computer There are several factors that I'm honestly not turns black only but Computer on screen. sure will play a role or not mainly because I'm not very understanding when it comes to computers The problem is that when I push the power button of my computer it sends no signal to my screen I can't tell if it loads anything or not either I can think of a few things that might have some effect on this but I'm not sure About three months back after cleaning my neglected tower of dust and such it started to shut off rapidly after boot up To inspect the problem I had a friend look at the computer He removed the cooling unit on the Processor revealing that my year old computer had next to no thermal compound So after putting of Computer turns on but only black screen. ordering some for about three months we had applied some about days ago The computer then booted up fine but seemed to have an excess Computer turns on but only black screen. amount of lag So I wiped the computer and reinstalled XP Computer turns on but only black screen. tonight When it was booted up it worked fine so I went into IE to download firefox as it's my preference then started reinstalling my drivers First I installed my Videocard then kept my computer booted up for my sound drivers which I got from the Compaq homesite After doing this I rebooted my computer Not I wanted to get simple things such as AIM and and Java So when i go to boot up Firefox from it's default homepage my computer shuts down when I go to reboot it it doesn't start and I'm forced to unplug and plug in the tower It continued to boot me from various sites So after getting fed up with that I reinstalled my Oblivion having already installed my sound and video cards After about an hour of playing that it froze that's when I shut down my computer manually and tried to reboot it and it starts but doesn't send anything to my monitor After reading a few posts on here I took out my video card and cleaned made sure it was connected and retried I still got nothing Is there any chance anyone could give me a hand with this all

Inverters and bad backlights can be hard to diagnose without just replacing the parts but it sounds as one or the other is out/going out.
If you check these out yourself, good luck. Laptops are a bear and unless you've done a few, a repair shop may be best.

Hi, at first I thought this might be virus related. I went through with help from Howard_Hopkinso, and removed all virus' and malware. But my problem persists.

I have an Alienware Area 51 m7700, 120 Gig HD, 3 Gig memory, 3.8 GHz Pentium 4 HT duo processor. NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra.

What happens is when i try and playing a source game for little while the screen goes black, sound skips, but the laptop still runs. Also happens when i click on certain internet links.

I assume that i need updated drivers, which i did. but that didn't work either.

I am lost, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Tech Support Guy's users,

Yesterday, I got back to my house, and went on the computer for a short while, then while looking on the internet, my Inspiron 1525's screen died on me. Not only my main screen, but also my other monitors as well, saying there was no signal. I was assuming that it is a dying Video Card, but I wanted to have more insight regarding my question. Is my fear correct, or it is the drivers? I haven't updated my drivers since 4 months ago, so I doubt it is my drivers.

Any who, if you need more information from me, please ask away and I will respond as quickly as possible.


P.s. I wasn't do sure if I was suppose to put it on Hardware or Window 7 section. Felt like, it could be a window 7 error.

A:PC Turns on BUT my screen is still black/blank?

Is this a new build that will not post or has it been running then developed a problem?

Have you tried disconnecting ALL drives [both hd and optical] removing any usb device ie printer, scanner, hub, etc and then pw ON? See if the mb will reliably complete POST. If it does complete post a few times, then start connecting devices one at a time until you find the failed part. If it does not complete POST in the above config, then you will need to start swapping parts with known good units; start with the pw supply.

Next post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb installed, exact ram installed, etc. Note 8gig of ram does not really tell us much; 8gig of corsair 123xxx, tells us a lot more.

If you can get the system to post, enter the bios or uefi and post the following info; cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values.

A:screen turns black during XP Installation

Try taking out your graphics card, if your xp disc is SP1 try SP2.
The 34 minutes is the installing devices section.
Its the graphics card it is may now be dead..or you can try using the onboard gfx just to pass installation..

Try another card/onboard and clean the agp slot with compressed air.

Hello all This is my first post here so please excuse me if I have created this thread in the wrong place For quite some time perhaps about two-three months my screen has been flickering and turning black at random times Sometimes my screen will be fine for a few days in a row and then it might flicker for a few minutes and eventually just turn black Usually what I do and turns Screen flickers black is turn it off and on a few times and eventually it returns normal The thing is I know it is still turned on because my music player will still operate and it is a lighter shade of black meaning I can still faintly see what was on my screen Further I initially thought it was an issue related to my charger being wrecked Screen flickers and turns black but I have since replaced this and the problem persists My guess is that it is some sort of virus which I am basing on my quick reading of some other websites where others have reported similar problems I m really not a tech whiz so does anyone have any suggestions Any input will be highly appreciated nbsp

At any random time I'm on my computer, the monitor screen will fade to a dark shade, then just go pitch black, while it's still on. If you turn the monitor off and back on it will stay normal for maybe a second before it goes pitch black again. The only way i can keep it from going black screen is by slapping the back of my monitor and it goes back to normal for awhile.

A:Monitor is jumbled, distorted, pixelly on startup, turns black when gets to desktop

I take it your system has a dedicated card while your motherboard has integrated video. Is the integrated video disabled in the BIOS? If not, do so. My question is based on what you gave: "May not use onboard video with add in video device."

Also, that pixillation is information that either the card is overheating or dying. But do the above first.

There could be several reasons for your problem, but I am leaning toward your graphics driver, see if it works in safe mode.

Possibly a heat issue. Have you cleaned out the inside of your system recently?
Try installing something like Speedfan (free download, easy to find via Google) and have that running. Then you can monitor your CPU, GPU etc temperatures.

Also, ensure all your drivers are up to date.

No guarantees this is the problem but anything that is fairly quick, free and easy is worth a shot first of all.

I'm running windows xp professional. I boot up my computer and it shows the windows loading page and then when the desktop should appear, instead the screen goes black and my monitor reads "no PC signal", as if the PC is not connected to the monitor. But that cannot be the case because it showed the windows loading screen on the monitor.
This problem keeps occuring now. It was working perfectly fine up to today. I booted the computer up in safe mode which worked fine, and re-installed the latest nvidia geforce 7300 se graphics card driver. I then rebooted in normal mode and the problem still occured where the screen is black and says "no PC signal." I don't know what to do now, i tried a new vga cable already, but that didn't fix it.

Ok, so...I just got over my BSOD problem by disabling crossfire on my system. It was working fine for a few days (And it still technically is), but I'm having a strange issue now. The computer turns on and loads windows fine, but the screen is black until Windows actually loads. Basically, I don't see a splash screen for the motherboard and there's no way for me to get into the BIOS.

Has anyone experienced this problem before? Any ideas?

System Specs:
Processor: Intel i7 3960x
Motherboard: ASRock Extreme 9 X79 chipset
16 GB of RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz
Graphics: 2 x Radeon 7970's (Both cards are connected, despite Crossfire being disabled)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 Bit

A:Screen goes black UNTIL windows turns on: Can't get into BIOS

Does the motherboard have a built in video port? You could try hooking your monitor to that to get into the BIOS. Then from there.. not sure, maybe the internal video port was enabled by a BIOS reset or something, try turning it off and maybe it'll then use your normal card(s) during POST?

A:computer turns on but screen stays black

The PSU was probably bad, replacing it should have fixed it. There may be bad caps on the motherboard or something is grounding on the MOBO to the case and causing it to not boot. Take everything apart. Take Heat Sync off of processor and apply Thermal Paste. Take MOBO out of case and check to see if there are any burn marks, bad caps, or if there are any risers missing off the case keeping the MOBO from touching the case.

Sounds like your video card is not installed and setup properly. I'd recommend going through the whole installation & setup from the start. If the problem continues then you need to test the vide card.

Replace the video card, but first check the fan on it if it has one. Make sure it is running

A new build, but just recently started having this problem. At first, it just took a few on and offs until it turned on completely, now it just turns on and off all the time. The psu apparently works fine, because when I remove the CPU 1 pin (GND I think) the computer turns on again, but nothing happens on the screen.
Tried reseating the CPU, nothin'.

oh, and specs:

OCZ Stealthxstream psu (this ones about 4 years old)
Intel i570
Asus P7P55D
geforce 8800gts 512
Corsair ram

A:PC turns itself on and off repeatedly

Your PSU is getting on a bit, sounds like it has degraded/failing capacitors and cannot power your CPU and graphics card.

With the P4 connector unplugged from the motherboard, you are not powering the CPU, hence the machine doesn't POST and the system will stay on.

I am encountering an issue of when the Dell optiplex 755 boots up, it boots through the Windows XP logo just fine, once it tries to transition between the logo and loading the system up, it just shows a black screen and nothing else happens. I tried using a bootable Windows XP flash drive to repair the system files and it loads the Windows XP setup ok but when it runs through all of the commands on the bottom of the screen and the last one says "Starting Windows" , it takes me to a blue screen (screenshot below). I have HIRENS and have done a lot of the chkdsk commands to fix the files and everything comes back ok. I tried to clone the hard drive with the same exact hard drive and still the same issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.

So this has been happening for quite some time now. While in game in almost every game, my screen will periodically freeze and turn black, then after a few seconds come back on to renew game play. This ONLY happens when I am in-game, not while anything else is happening on my computer. During this I can still hear audio from all sources but the game itself. The frequency of this varies from game to game, and some are even free of the problem, but it's become very tiresome. I've tried everything I could think of to fix the problem, including backdating and updating my drivers, but I'm no expert. I can only assume this has something to do with my card, any help would be appreciated

I've got 8 gigs of ram, an Nvidia Geforce GTX 660, CPU is a 2x 3200 MHz, couldn't tell you about the motherboard other than it came with the factory built tower.

A:Screen periodically turns black during gameplay then comes back on

Are you running the fan speed at automatic? I was having the same problem with my Radeon HD 7770 when the fan speed was set to auto. Going to a manual fan speed of 60% solved the problem and my GPU runs a lot cooler. Go into your Nvidia control panel and try setting the fan speed above 50% and play your game, bump it higher if you still get black screens. It makes your PC a little louder, but it's better than damaging your card with excess heat.

I don't think that the automatic fan speed modes work on either Radeon or Nvidia cards in the last few sets of drivers, based on the forum complaints that I've been reading lately.

Hello! I recently dropped my desktop (I'm soo clumsy) on the floor. It's a dell vostro 400 with 4gb ram, intel 2 duo core, and nvidia 8600GT. I know it's not a power issue. The first time i turned it on after the accident, it beeped continously. Everytime i turned it on, all of the fans start up, my monitor recieves a signal from my graphic card but goes to power save mode, and it doesn't load the bios or the start up screen... what ever it's called. Any way of fixxing this or is it dead? I think it's the motherboard that's as far as i can tell.

EDIT: the graphics card works properly. It fell while it was on; I had to hold the power button to turn it off since it froze.

A:Dropped computer turns on, but black screen occurs

You moved and dropped the computer while it was on??? Not good. Open the case WITH THE COMPUTER UNPLUGGED and reseat the memory, and the graphics card. Check the CPU heatsink/ fan to make sure it is still tight and positioned properly. Also, check for any loose cables

My computer goes black at seemingly random points during gaming.

I checked to see if it was overheating with a log post (that exceeds the limit of .txt-files, thus I cannot attach it). As far as I can see there is no problem there. My best guess would be the graphic card driver, but updating them seemed to have no effect last time I did it (just got back from vacation, updating again as I post).

Any help would be very velcome!

Okay I have a strange problem I have a HP EliteBook 8460p Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz 6GB AMD HD 6470M laptop. when I first set it up after installing the video drivers the screen went black. I pulled out the power cord and the screen came back on because of power options having a lower value set for screen brightness. I used the power menu to lower the brightness one notch when my computer is plugged in.

The problem my screen isn't has bright as it could be and I can't figure out how to get the highest brightness setting to work. And yes the other brightness settings work so it's not that problem with auto brightness or whatever it's called and I have it turned off anyway.


A:Highest brightness setting turns screen black.

Sounds like a bad inverter to me. Good news is, even if the unit is out of warranty, it's probably a $20 part. Bad news is, you almost always have to rip a laptop 1/2-3/4 apart before you can even get to it. The majority of the time the inverter is located in the bottom part of the display bezel where the company logo is.

If the unit is still under warranty, this is a perfectly valid claim, so get on the phone with HP and make them fix it.

Whats your suggestions??

If Check Disk is still running 14 hours later, then your HDD has too many bad sectors for it to fix. Let it finish, if it says there was an error, or it never finishes, then you will need to get a new HDD. You can test this theory by downloading the ISO image for Drive Fitness in my signature, burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot the troubled computer with the newly created CD and run the Short and Extended tests. If either fails, you need a new HDD.

I have bought a Toshiba Equium L-40 17-M laptop 3 years ago.

As I turn on the laptop with the adapter. it turns on, as I hear the sound. But the LCD is black. When I disconnect the power (adapter) and use the battery, and press the ON button , the laptop works fine.

I dont know why the laptop does not work in the normal mode, when the adapter (power) is connected?

Although it does work fine in safe-mode, irrespective of whether turned on with the adapter or battery. The laptop is useless if does not work with windows start up in normal mode, when the adapter is plugged in.

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.

A:Toshiba L40 17-M LCD screen turns black in Normal mode

Hi Sadiq, welcome to VF, I have came across this issue a few times and the solution may sound a little strange, may I recommend doing a full anti-virus scan just as a precaution.

First of all, unplug the notebook and take out the battery by using the slider underneath, keep the power cord out and hold the power button for around 30 seconds(we are draining the power out of the notebook at this stage), put the battery back in, and plug in the power cord turn it back on and it should *fingers crossed* work normally

The reason the screen boots up blank is because there is too much power in the laptop and it's natural reaction is to turn off to save the components from imminent death, doing this drains that extra build up of power and restores it to normal operating parameters.

I'm stumped! About a month ago my windows file manager (both Xplorer2 and Windows Explorer which both worked perfectly for years) started malfunctioning when I right-click my mouse on a displayed executable (.exe) program icon.

The rotating 'Busy' icon appears for a few seconds and then the screen turns black. A few seconds later all the desktop icons begin reappearing but I appear to have exited the file manager.

So far I've tried:

1. Anti-Virus scans. (AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes, MS Security Essentials, etc.)
2. Replacing IE9 with IE8. (Windows Explorer and IExplorer both use the same source program.)
3. Downloaded and ran HijackThis. (I don't know what to do with the results log.)

None of the above steps helped. Does anybody have any thought on what I should try next? Thanks!

What is HijackThis? I wouldn't trust third-party software unless it was recommended by a expert.

Are you able to upload the results log onto the forums, maybe it will contain some useful information related to the problem.

Hi all, this is my first time posting into the forum and I would like to apologise if i have made some mistakes  anywhere so please bear with me.The laptop screen turns black after moments of usage and after a few days of using it the problem slowly disappears on its own.After two weeks, I reset my laptop and the problems came back. The screen turns black and all the  activity going on behind stopped instantly. I searched for solutions anywhere and I can't find one, the only thing i can do is holding the power button on and off again. Setting the display to never sleep and turning on screensavers won't solve the problem either. This problem frustrates me very much. Does anyone else have this kind of problem? If so, anyone has any solution regarding this problem? I would appreciate it greatly if there's any solution

I am having this problem with the Edge 2-1580 when running on battery power.  Screen shuts off after 15 - 45 minutes of use and I need to hard reset by holding power button.  Seems like a lot of people with different models are having this problem, but no solutions.  I've tried updating BIOS, drivers, factory resetting, adjusting power settings, all to no avail.  I tried chatting with live support last night and "Chris" had me download the Lenovo Solution Center program and do a hardware scan but of course the scan came back with no problems.  I can't believe with so many people having this problem that Lenovo hasn't come out with a solution.  Sorry I can't help more, but I hope you find an answer!
