Black screen startup 8800 gts

Q: Black screen startup 8800 gts

I have a prob,whit a geforce 8800 gts 512mb.

I got it from a secondhand site and all was alright till I started to overclock

Nothing big,oc at 16% and the temp was 60*C wich aint so high.But when I started the pc next day,I got only black screen,no bios no safe mod no nothing.

I have a
pentium D 805 2.66
gigabyte ga-8i945pl-g as mobo
500 mb ram drr II/ 4 slotsX 500=2gb
acopia dual fan it-25f2 -psu

I know the mobo aint dead cuz I tested with my other gpu,and it worked
Did a bios reset-still black screen
changed the ram position
tried with other monitor
dvi-vga adapter works(I tested on the other gpu)
Nothing worked

I noticed that now when I start the pc,the gpu fan speed doesn't change I mean its at 100% but when I had a image on the screen at the start up,the fan speed was at 100% only for 3 sec,then it changed lets say at 50% after those 3 sec.

should I try the bake fix or its a certain dead card?

Sry for my spelling mistakes hope u can give me an answer cheers.

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:GTX 8800 black screen on boot up

Heya salpap I know the recommended settings are to automatically install updates, however I always chose the option of automatically downloading the updates but choosing when I would like to install them. You can then try to hide the update in windows update. Right click on the driver and select hide this update.

As regards to the black screen, I've had that before when I had windows XP, however I think the fix for this is across all windows platforms. Maybe somebody can confirm this before you try it though as I'm not sure. Here's the link to the fix that worked for me when I needed it: Black Screen woes could affect millions on Windows 7, Vista and XP

Hope this helps somewhat

Hey guys I have a problem with my graphics card Few days ago I have put my PC into sleep mode for about hours when I returned and switched computer back on again screen didnt respond everything else seemed to be okay I just couldnt see anything on my screen like monitor was on standby mode Since then whenever I turn my PC on I cant see anything at boot Black on gtx screen 8800 all on my screen I also noticed that beeping sounds doesn t sound right normally I have beeps beep and after - sec another beep but now it 8800 gtx Black screen on boot takes 8800 gtx Black screen on boot about - sec to hear nd 8800 gtx Black screen on boot beep I have checked graphics card fan and it is working properly i think I took my card out to one of my friends to check if its working but with no luck same problem occured on my friends PC I also put my friend s card into my PC and it worked I could see the startup screen again so im pretty sure that it is my graphics card that s causing the problem I have updated my graphics card drivers days before the problem occured I have that computer for over years and I never had any problems like this before Would it be possible that sleep mode has caused my graphics card to lose some power permanently in other words my card didn t wake up properly from sleep mode I think I tried every possible solution I might even try the oven trick if I wont get it running so please guys if you have any tips on how to get it running again I will be grateful thanks in advance P S i ll update my specs soon nbsp

A:8800 gtx Black screen on boot

maybe the fan stopped when you put it into sleep mode, and the graphics carried on as normal, thus burning the card out. Would explain why its not working in your friends computers either

Successfully running a GTX 7800 vid card on a DFI LanParty UT SLI board.

Installed a brand new BFG 8800 GTX in its place, using both 6-pin power jacks from
an Enermax 535 watt PS. The first few boots, I heard a single, long beep. Later, I
hear nothing. In all events, I eventually hear the XP bootup chimes, but nary a photon
of light escapes the new vid card. Black screen only. I previously removed the
GTX 7800 display drivers as per instructions prior to installing the GTX8800.

I tried both outputs on two monitors: A new Gateway 24" and a Jyndai L90D+ 19".

Is it possible I am doing-not doing some obvious, stupid thing that prevents the 8800
from putting out a signal, or should I best RMA the thing without delay? tia

(Replacing the GTX 7800 restores the signal... after an unusual delay.

Upon booting my computer, I'm presented with the option to go into startup repair, or start normally. If I start normally, it loads the logo, but before it gets to the login screen, it crashes to the boot screen. If I select the startup repair option, it shows a loading bar, which completes, but then the screen just goes completely black, no cursor.

I tried to use the disk system repair that Microsoft recommended, but it just shows a blue screen (not a bsod), and just the spinning load cursor. I'm currently writing this from Ubuntu running on livecd from the same computer, running at native resolution (in case it was an issue with the graphics card).

My specs are:
Packard Bell iPower X3.0
Intel? Core? i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz ? 8
ATI Radeon 5570
2x 500GB HDD

A:Crash to bootscreen on startup, startup repair black screen

See if disconnecting the hard disk allows you to boot from the repair disc off your CD/DVD drive. Avoid Static Damage to Your PC when removing the hard disk connection. Also, before removing the hard disk connection, make sure the power is drained from the system by turning off the computer, unplugging it from the wall/surge protector, and holding down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and allow power to dissipate from components.

A:Startup screen flickers to black, then all black screen

That is weird situation I'd say. I am unsure what actually is the issue here, perhaps one way of finding what may be happening is having a look at your Event Viewer Logs. You can find Event Viewer, in Control Panel, Administrative Tools.

Also please follow these 8-steps, and post your logs at Malware and Virus Removal Forum for analysis. Regards

I have been having this problem since a week or so. Broni has helped me in malware forum to rule out malware as responsible. My machine is clean and I was refered here for further help.

Here is my problem:

At boot-time, I see windows XP load screen with the progress bar, the progress bar advances to the end and then, the screen turns pitch black and all is see is an arrow cursor I can move around. I thought until yesterday that this was a permanent freeze-up, but if I wait, say, 6 minutes, the black screen disappears and windows then starts normally.

Last week, problem was intermittent, it now happens all the time.

Windows boot-up was fine before.

Please help me.

A:Windows load screen at boot, looong black screen, then normal startup

I had this tons of times with my old XP PC. It is normal if you have a lot of files on the HDD and you have little RAM. How much RAM do you have? What is the capacity of the HDD? And do you have the Windows XP disc? Would you be willing to upgrade the RAM and/or the OS if we must resort to that? Or would you rather just buy a new PC?

Just today, I turned on my computer and got the blue screen of death, so I restarted my PC. Then a black screen came up saying "Windows could not start beacuse the following file is missing or corrupt : \windows\system32\config\system."

You can attempt to repair this file by putting the winxp cd in etc...

Now when i turn on my computer there is just a black screen showing, with nothing at all on it.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks very much for your help.

A:Can't access startup screen, boot up leads to black screen

Hi Helix935 and welcome to Tenforums.

If it was less than 10 days since this happened, you might have been able to go into Settings>Recovery and rollback from the Anniversary Update. But it's been too long now.

If it's data only that you're needing to save, you could boot the system to Kyhi's rescue media and use File Explorer to copy your data over to an external drive, then perform a clean install, (or reset or refresh from within safe mode).

Ok 116 error is caused by your Graphics card.
First thing to do is update your drivers from the NVIDIA website.

If BSODs continue Try HDD tests,
download gpu-z to check if your card is getting too hot, also is there lots of dust in the card?

Do you overclock your video card?

I'm not sure what it's talking about and what to re install and I can't reinstall whatever it is because I can't get to the start menu.

after minutes of hanging in that weird startup screen considering whether to hard reboot or not it went into start repair still there now To make a long story short I suspected something wrong with my hard drive due to a software giving me an i o error after some research I am not knowledgable when it comes to computers I ran chkdsk when I woke up it was still running as it should be in the process of 'replacing bad clusters' for certain files so there was something wrong alright and was at After leaving my computer for ten minutes I found my computer had gone to a black screen then.. screen, weird 8 black then then ran chkdsk screen, startup hrs, and seeing as I was reluctant to do a hard reboot I chkdsk ran 8 hrs, then black screen, then weird startup screen, then.. waited it out and it moved to a windows safe mode startup screen but only the big cursor and standard background was present chkdsk ran 8 hrs, then black screen, then weird startup screen, then.. nothing else see attached picture After ten minutes it went to startup repair which has been running for the past half hour What has happened during the ten minutes I was away and chkdsk was still only at why did the subsequent events unfold as they did What can I do now

A:chkdsk ran 8 hrs, then black screen, then weird startup screen, then..

Hello Kayron can you still get into safe mode did you say? If so go in and run sfc /scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

if that doesn't run then maybe you have a hardware problem.

I am running Windows XP Professional Edition SP3 and the issue is on startup after the Windows loading animation the screen goes totally black with no cursor in sight.

This happened after a power cut when the computer suddenly shut down.

I can run it in safe mode.

I can run another Windows XP Professional installation that I have on my PC (same HDD) and that works with no issues.

I used system restore (24 hours) and it starts up after that, but then after restarting it will not work. Same applies for when I did a system restore from 1 week ago.

All help is appreciated!

I am unable to start normally my desktop (make=emachine). Recently, I installed a drawing software and since then, the PC froze. When I shut it down and tried to reboot, it just shows a back screen. I cannot even see the Windows XP logo.

So far, I have tried the F8 function and none of the Safe Modes make any difference. The Last Known Good Config is no help either.

I have reason to believe my PC may be infected with a virus.

Please help.

If the computer can't boot even in to safe mode your options are more limited and may involve a bit more technical know-how. If it were me, and I have the facilities to do it, I'd do one of two things. I'd boot from a live CD to make sure my stuff was still on the drive and it you can run an online virus scan of the drive. The other thing that could be done would be to remove the disk, put it as a secondary drive in a good system that had reliable antivirus installed and then tell it to run a scan the disk you're having issues with. Either way it's pretty involved since you don't have a system that will even function in safe mode. As bad as it sounds, your data is likely intact, and you may wish to take it to a professional to resolve this particular issue.

My Sony VAIO has a black screen on startup. I have turned the computer off and on several times. Sometimes I get "VAIO" and then the screen goes black and sometimes I get "operating system not found", but most of the time I just get a black screen. How do I fix this to get my computer working again?

A:Black screen on startup


operating system not found

It sounds like your HDD has failed. Download the ISO image for Seatools from my signature, and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the short and extended tests. If either fails the HDD needs to be replaced.

Power supply failure, or about to fail? Sounds familiar as that's what my similar experience was due to.

Hard drive failure?

Or, it could simply be loose connections somewhere. Have you powered it on with the case open to have a look at what's going on inside?

hey guys. I have been having some problems with my Toshiba laptop recently. I formatted it with Windows 7 ultimate 32bit in December of 2010. sometimes on startup it takes me to the boot manager and asks be if I want to boot into widows or the recovery console. and other times it takes me to a black screen that asks me to do a hard drive scan of some sort. this happens only on startup and completely randomly. the scan has happened 3 or 4 times. and the boot manager only a couple. the first time this happened was prolly about a month ago. I don't think it is a virus or anything. I have nod32 installed on the machine, and my browsing habits are very safe. and like I said the machine was formatted not too long ago. nod32 scan came up blank and I'm not experiencing any other strange behaviors. any ideas? thanks!

Hi, I was watching a movie when my computer froze in the middle of it so I manually restarted it. I have a compaq presario x1000 laptop 1.5 years old. It restarted but then the color on the screen flickered for a few seconds and I got an error message from windows saying a fatal error occured and that the error had been logged. Then it froze again so I manually restarted it again. This time it froze even faster so I tried to restart it again but it wouldn't start up. The power light is on and I can hear the fans running but the screen is black and the compaq logo won't even appear. I tried hooking it up to a monitor to see if the screen was broken but its not. I also tried to stick in a reboot cd but I couldn't see anything on the screen. Any help would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks a lot, Michelle.

A:Please help black screen at startup

The fact that you cannot seem to get ANY kind of "visual" from your computer means you have a very limited number of options, made even less so if you are less than computer inclined. Hooking up another monitor to an alternate video output may "rule-out" your laptop screen (monitor) being bad, but your video card could be out, or worse. Can you hear the Hard Drive spinning and clicking during boot ? Is it making any "beeping" noises ?

The critical step here is if you can boot to BIOS. That means, when you first turn on your computer, start tapping the "del" key about once a second and see if you can get to a 2-color screen (usually white text on blue background).

If you can get THAT far, that means something. If you can't get that far, you should be finding out if your machine is under warranty. You should probably do that anyways, even if you can get to BIOS, because this sounds serious and it sounds like hardware, and if it is still under warranty I would recommend getting it fixed and or replaced now, before it completely detonates after the warranty (if there is one) expires.

If you can get to BIOS, write back and we'll see what can be done.

A:ALWAYS Black Screen At Startup

Sorry to cross-post this, but I was able to get out of the black screen. I used System Restore; the earliest point I could restore to was roughly the time the virus was introduced into the system, though. With a constant black screen, I felt like I had no choice, so I did it. I was able to restart in normal mode without the black screen. However, Windows Explorer still crashes constantly. I am unable to access any type of spyware/virus protection program, and I cannot use HiJack This to post a log. Any antivirus-type program I try to run "disappears" 2-3 seconds after it starts a scan. Pretty much any program I run gives me an error message and forces me to restart the program, so nothing is working. How can I fix the virus without virus scans AND without knowing the names of the infected files? Is there anything I can do?

Hey guys,

Tried to start my computer this morning and, after passing through the windows loading screen, it went to a blank, black screen with just the cursor. Was looking around at what the problem may be, and found a solution. Ctrl+Alt+Del worked, clicked on file, added the "explorer" process, and everything was back to normal, functioning well. Turned it off again, and now it doesn't even get to the windows loading screen, it just goes plain black. I can get into BIOS. But i don't know of anything i could do. Seriously weird, and thinking it could be some form of corruption/virus. I have Symantec, but i usually don't take any notice of it, however, lately, threats were popping up every few minutes. Almost certain that this is directly related.

VGA mode uses your graphic driver same as in normal mode, only the resolution is 640x480, 8 bit (256 colors) and 60 Hz refresh. Safe mode does not use the graphics driver at all.

Are you able to boot into VGA mode? (tap f8 on the keyboard until you are presented with such a choice while booting up.)

That's not Win7 but it's same or similar.

I tried the sfc /scannow and that gets to about 49% before failing. I tried doing /restorehealth with DISM and get error: 1392. I tried using a tech bench ISO to repair the image and still I get error: 1392. I tried to do an in place upgrade using an ISO with the anniversary update but every time I get the error "Setup couldn't start properly."

If it makes a difference I was trying all of this in normal mode and not safe mode.

Stating the steps here...After I boot up the computer,it'll say something like Microsoft corporation with the loading bar,after that the Vista logo appears. well right when the screen pops up for me to type in my password to enter my desktop,the screen goes completely black. where I end up having to shut down the improper way. At times this would happen 2 or 3 times in a row,then after booting up again everything would come up just fine as if nothing was even wrong. frustrating haha

It sounds like possibly a problem with the RAM. If you have multiple DIMMs try taking all but one out and see if your computer will boot, and try different slots. Try with different DIMMs until it boots.

i am getting black screen after startup. but system was running in safemode.
so i decided to install windows 7 again.
i had inserted cd and pressed any key.
i got a windows 7 startup but after that it was again coming black screen.

A:getting black screen after startup!!


This sounds like a serious hardware fault; out of curiosity I would attempt to boot a live operating system such as Ubuntu Linux:

Download | Ubuntu

Download Ubuntu, burn the image file to disk (using ImgBurn, or similar), then boot your computer from this disk. Ubuntu has an option to "Try Ubuntu" which essentially runs it live from the CD.

If you get an Ubuntu desktop you can try moving files around on your hard drive, inserting a CD, etc.

Given what you wrote in your post - I doubt that you will get to the Ubuntu desktop, which confirms that you are experiencing a hardware fault.

Best of luck

After logging into windows, instead of the desktop im being presented with a black screen, plus a small window (see screenshot). You can't see it in the pic but it just says 'Win..'. The box can't be resized. When clicking the 'x' the black screen remains and the only way for me to shut down is via ctrl alt del.

Before experiencing this problem, I had just finished removing the System Healer virus/malware using the steps on this link

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi guys, yesterday my AMD Radeon popped up telling me I should update my drivers, so I started it. After a few minutes I noticed the download/update was stuck at 12% and I needed to go do something else and decided to turn the wifi off of my laptop. (Don't know if this has anything to do with it) After a few minutes my screen went black. I thought this was normal for updates so I waited 25 minutes and seeing the screen was still black I hard reset my laptop. Tried turning it on this morning and the HP symbol pops up after that it's just black. I've tried going to the BIOS menu but pressing F10 or the Windows button + B doesn't work. Any help is appreciated thank you!

Hello guys,
I recently got my Toshiba A665 Laptop back from servicing: new battery, cleaning, and software install including ESAT antivirus.
I opened the box and reconnected everything as normal before starting up from the button.
I receive only the complete black screen meaning there is no graphic signal at all, no cursor or logos.
The keyboard gradually lights up, sound appears to work and the HDD signal lamp blinks.
I have tried disconnecting and pressing Shift + F8 but this does not help. I do not want to send it back again so is there any way I can investigate this and possibly fix it? After all I have paid a lot of money for the servicing.
I am suspecting a graphics hardware problem at the present but it may be any number of things.

A:Black Screen on startup

Can you try connecting an external monitor?
Most laptops have either a VGA port or an HDMI port on the side for connecting an external monitor.

There should be some sort of warranty on the repair that you paid for.
Contact the servicing company to see what options you have.
Are you able to boot from a CD/DVD?
You can try a bootable copy of MemTest86 (not MemTest86+) as it will boot on both BIOS and UEFI systems:

I've had a problem with the external drive not working, so I tried to restore to last week. The computer froze through the restore, so I had to restart using the on button. I then got the black screen with nothing but the white cursor. i tried alt ctr del, didn't work. I tried restarting with a repair, but then I just get the cursor on a pretty blue screen with images on it (I assume it's some kind of windows screen). Safe mode doesn't work either.

I'm really stuck, I don't want to lose everything! Can someone please help?

Does it perform better at lower than 1280 x 960?   I have seen where some monitors will act this way when set to the max and they struggle, going down 1 resolution size can sometimes fix this.I have an old Dell monitor that is acting like this and going back 1 resolution setting fixed it. When setting it to the max that it will display before black screen no sync it will do just like your problem. But going lower 1 more from the max that it will display at fixed the issue of having to use the windows key and flicker between picture and black screen.,154906.0.html

hi. it sounds like a similar situation i had following removal of several viruses. you may have a corrupt/rogue driver. you need to boot into the recovery console, using your recovery cd, then type "cd C:\windows\system32\drivers" [press enter] then type "dir" [press enter]
read through the list that appears, and make a note of any files appearing as 0kb in size. it will most likely be a randomly named file, and will most definitely be ending in a .sys extension (this is the driver file type). please report back on the file name etc.

When I start up the computer it goes to this black screen with a white blinking _ and after that is up for about 10 seconds, it goes to the screen that allows you to select Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, and Start Windows Normally. If you click on any of them it just freezes and nothing happens. If you wait until the timer runs out, it just goes on to a black screen and does nothing. I can't enter my BIOS to run from the CD drive to reinstall the OS.. so what do I do?

Hi there,My 2 in 1 (touchscreen with detachable keypad) only displays a black screen upon switching on. It seems it is loading as usual just not displaying (the power light shows it has switched on, and if a device such as a phone is plugged in to the USB port it asks on the phone if the computer can access the photos and shows the phone is charging).I am assuming it is a problem with the display driver as there were a few display issues prior to this happening.I have tried to get into bios by pressing F1-12 on start up but no luck (maybe a touch screen issue????) also the battery isn't accessible so can't remove that without disassembling the touchscreen.Any advice?! Thanks in advance :-)

Not being able to boot from a CD/DVD is an issue - but may not be your primary issue.

Are you able to see anything when the system first starts?
Are you able to access the BIOS?
Have you plugged the laptop into an external monitor to see if it works there? (you may have to press the Fn key along with another key to switch to the external display).

well sometimes programs like that mess with the registry and can cause stuff like that I can't really say for sure because I myself haven't used it but what I can suggestr is rolling back your computer to a previous state before you installed it.
to do this click start>all programs>accesories>system tools>system restore
click restore my computer to an earlier point in time and on the calander it should have the date on which you installed your program select that and click next it will go through the process and restart your computer hopefully fixing your problem. just make sure you backup important files that you put on your computer after you installed "PC booster 2008"

Hi All,

I have encountered a problem that is starting to annoy me. The other day my laptop froze and I restarted. After the flash windows screen it goes black and I can see nothing, doesn't get to the users screen. I have had windows 7 on for 2 months and all has been perfect.

I have tried to install the Nvidia drivers again (re downloaded drivers 179.48 and 186.82 with mod .inf). Both said installed correctly but after the restart still got black screen. Currently I am in safe mode on video controller as the display card. I uninstalled the old drivers as well.

the 179.48 were on previously and I have had no problems until the other day. I am stuck for any other solutions on what to do.

I have a dell m1710 with a 7950 gtx. Win 7 build is 7201 64bit.

All help would be greatly appreciated as I am at a wits end...

Boot into safe mode and check device manager for display driver function. In safe mode you dont load the vid driver. If not the vid driver, try going into event viewer (type event in search) and go to windows logs>application tab and check for errors.

If you want to use the Restore disk you need to go into bios and change the boot order so the CD is first.

You may have uninstalled the router, but did you delete the conection you created when you installed it?

I have repeatedly tried to boot up my Dell Dimension 8400, but each time the same problem happens. First, the XP Logo screen hangs for like a minute. Then, the screen turns black. Here, it should load the accounts screen. Instead, the screen turns black, a mouse pointer appears, and then the little hourglass mouse pointer is there forever until I reboot. In safe mode, the screen turns black right after the long list of loaded drivers. The 'Safe Mode' indicators are in the corners, but no other indication that it actually works. I think XP is broke Can anyone help me?

Try running chkdsk from the Recovery Console.Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.Type: chkdsk /rIt's important to have a space before the "/".To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Why not tell us about the components of your computer including motherboard, cpu, power supply (watts and brand name), drive types and how they are set up, video card, .......You get the picture, give us a picture of what you have and that might help us to know what is wrong.

I was attempting to install updates on my laptop (that has vista) I was installing vista service pack 1...It wasn't installed because I am having other issues with my computer, but anyways.
The windows update told me to restart my computer and it began loading the files for the service pack and such. It restarted and there was a black screen with numbers loading files like the startup system. Then it froze on one of the files for about 2 hours. I came home and it was still frozen so I manually shut off the laptop. Now I try to turn it back on and all I get is a black screen, no start up menus or logo or anything!!!!

When I started my computer today without having installed any new things to my computer I heard 1 long beep and 2 short and my screen didn't get any contact. It just said "NO ANALOG SIGNAL".I read that it was a problem with my video card. I plugged it out and in and I got away with the beeps(which probably means that my computer find contact with it), but the screen is still black and it says: "NO ANALOG SIGNAL".
I have had my computer for maybe a year just,no new graphic cards or anything like that.

Is there anything I can do?
