Urgent! Win7 will not load after lenovo boot screen, black screen

Q: Urgent! Win7 will not load after lenovo boot screen, black screen

Hey guys I was installing kali from a usb drive, when it was partitioning the drive it crashed... So I turned off my lenovo g570 4334 laptop, pulled out the usb drive and booted my laptop up normally..... It loaded the lenovo screen, with the options to access bios, then loaded a black screen with a blinking underscore.... I can't do anything at all except from the bios.... I've been searching for hours, Microsoft support for 2 hours straight... And now I just feel like crying.... Please help me!

Preferred Solution: Urgent! Win7 will not load after lenovo boot screen, 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.)

Previously it showed Blue Screen every time I boot my Y460; few seconds after the Window Logo. No matter how many times I reformate, it still showing Blue Screen, indicating STOP 0x00000116 and atikmpag.sys error. Subsequently, I went into the BIOS and changed the settings on the graphics switchable to discrete graphics. However its getting worst now because there is no display (totally black with no background light) every time I on my y460. Hence I need assistance and solutions, thanks.

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?

A:Black screen blinking cursor immediately on boot, no load screen...

sounds like you need the PCIe power connector to run your video card. Try removing the card and enabling the onboard video until you get a new PSU or adadpter.

Hello I'm running Win x and this weekend I installed some updates Black screen of load won't properly death? Win7 using the autoupdate tool I started to shut off install the updates and left home My girlfriend then called saying that there was some kind of error going on I think it was with the harddrive not sure though I rush home my baby is hurting and see that a repair tool is working with something Although I can't really say what I was in a rush Anyway now when I try to boot I get stuck right after the logo loading screen with nothing Black screen of death?

Welcome, and sorry about your baby

But we have good news and can hopefully solve this problem.

Boot your computer from your Windows 7 installation DVD. Use system repair to try and repair the system. If not, then use the system restore option. See if there are any available. Let us know, and if that doesnt work, dont let it get you down. We will solve this, i swear!

Have faith brother and let us know!,

I recently got a Lenovo Y50 a couple months ago. I've been taking very good care of it, checking for viruses nearly every day and cleaning out everything daily as well, because I need this one to last because it will be my PC for college. But yesterday I booted her up and it showed the lenovo logo, then nothing. Black screen. No cursor or anything on the screen. Keyboard LEDs are on and caps lock and things can turn on and off. I've tried to restart multiple times, restored the system to 4 days ago, taking it off the charger and putting it on, I just don't know what's wrong. I don't know if safe mode will help but I have no idea how to get there on windows 8 anyways. Please and thank you )-:

Any help is appreciated nbsp

I'm a little surprised that it's in safe mode and still not responding. This may be a bit extreme, but have you tried to do a clean install? Granted, you'll lose whatever you're not able to backup, but it might help you rule out that it's not your video card...or support your theory.

Microsoft also has other suggestions on this page that you may find helpful:

System: Win732 bit SP1
CPU: Intel dual core E-2160
Ram: 2GB

When I boot regularly my screen just turns black prior to logging into windwos, i can hear the log on/off sounds.

It works in safemode with network drivers.

I ran antimalwarebytes and I had one infection by some "Rogueware.lnk".mp3 on my desktop which I removed with mab.

As of right now I'm running ESET online scan in safe mode and it found one infection "Win32/Opencandy".

I can assume that all hardware/drivers are working properly.

Why is my screen turning black all of a sudden when booting and how to get rid ofit?

Any help is welcome.

Thank you.

A:Likely rogueware infection win7/screen turns black during boot

A quick system restore to a point before you were infected may do the trick ... however, getting into the habit of imaging your drive, is IMO, the number one step in any security policy ... its a lot easier to restore an image than it is to re-install the OS and all of your applications ... let us know how it comes out ...

This will show you how to do a System Restore to restore your Windows 7 system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal user files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.
System Restore

This will show you how to create a system image (clone) backup of the entire hard drive or partition that Windows 7 is on, and any other selected drive or partition. You can use this image to be able to do a system image recovery to restore the hard drive or partition at boot back to the way it was at the time the backup image was created.

Please post exact sfc command you did. (I think it was correct btw). It took many minutes to complete? did it report "no integrity errors found" ?
It doesn't create a logfile because you ran it in recovery environment. To create a logfile:

after that run the SFC command. When it has finished you have a file C:\CBS.LOG

Hi guys,

I hope this is the right place and I'm alright to post this. I couldn't find another thread relating to the exact same problem, as they have hijackthis logs etc. whereas I cannot get onto my laptop to do anything at all.

I am running a Dell Studio 1555 with Windows 7. When I turn it on I can hear it boot, but everytime the screen just stays black. I cannot start it in safemode or do anything. It is just black.

I would greatly appreciate some advice as to what I can do, the only possible thing I can think is that the other day I used CC Cleaner and it did some things to the registry. Otherwise I have not downloaded anything or done anything that should suddenly make it stop working.

During the installation of a 'new' AMD Radeon 8867 - if I remember well - , my screen started to flash and then got black. My laptop was on with black screen and the cursor flashed. I turned it off, then back on , and it was the same story....nothing.. I pressed Shift+F8 and Nothing.
I can only access to BIOS (F2) or to BOOT MANAGER (F12)... Unfortunately no Safe Mode is an option. In fact, how is it possible to go to safe mode with a black screen on Windows 8??
I would appreciate any suggestions to fix the problem.

Hi BC welcome to Techspot,

Firstly the "purple adapter" is a PS2 conenction.

There are many reasons as to why this error may occur and how to to sovle this issues but it sounds like you have tried to start a windows installaiton and becasue the disc was scratched it hasn't completed the it hence it comes up with the error "BootMgr mssing". The best solution here I think would be for you to get another Windows disc and try re-installing windows.

to get into the BIOS remove the windows disc from your PC and restart. when the PC is laoding up hit the F2 key and this should allow you to load the BIOS.

I bought a new computer in September, Dell N5050. The first problem occurred in November, I made prntScr:
This problem is solved: I thought it's a virus, I downloaded Advanced SystemCare (I had McAfee) this scanned my computer and found a four Trojan.

Then came a new problem.
I turn on computer, starting windows, black screen with a cursor about 8-9 minutes, log on and welcome screen loading about 5 seconds.
I turn on computer, starting windows, black screen with a cursor about 1-2 minutes, log on and welcome screen loading about 6-7 minutes.

I really don't know, what it depends on.
What is problem? How I can fix it?

PS: my native language isn't English. Sorry for mistakes.
PS: I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.


A:Welcome screen load time or black screen with a cursor

First thing I'd do is getting rid of Advanced System Care. It's a system optimizer, and Windows 7 does not like optimizers. I'd bet that it is responsible of the slow start.

Second, ASC isn't an antivirus, or if it is I never heard of it. Which isn't a good sign. Install a good antivirus and run a full scan, I like Avira (my favourite, which is free and nuked all evil things I threw at it), but other people like Microsoft Security Essentials (again free, but less powerful than Avira).

When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter

AS the title says, I recently had a system restore last night after my windows 7 refuse to load. Having done so, it told me to click OK after the system restore to restart my laptop.

I complied and after the BIOS screen load, all i get was a black screen with this _ symbol and thats as far as it goes. Its like looking at a black picture with the symbol only. Anyone got any idea to solve this problem of mine please?

A:Black screen after BIOS load screen

If you have any USB devices other than keyboard and mouse, disconnect them, and do a hard shutdown by pressing the power switch down until your computer switches off.

Wait half a minute or so and try booting up again.

If that doesn't work, are you able to boot into Safe Mode?

Failing that you could try a repair install.

Doesn`t sound too good mate.

The only thing I can suggest, is to try another video card. If that works ok, then you know your video card has failed.

I've been using win7 for about 2 weeks and I didn't have much issues with it. Today when I turned on my laptop, everything was booting fine until the welcome screen where I enter my password to log in. It gives me a blank page but it's not loading at all, I see my mouse not to mention. It's working fine when I boot up from safe mode though, that's how I'm typing this :P.Anyways, I really need someone to help fix this.

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.

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).

I was cleaning around my laptop and it stared freezing up so I restarted, though it's not a common problem with my computer. When it restarted it came up with a no boot device screen so I tried it again and first a overheating screen came up but said the problem was now resolved, press enter to load setup. So I pressed enter and it brought up the startup screen but never completely loaded, stuck on the loading screen. Now every restart it comes up with the same. I've tried a couple of things like resetting boot to original settings, tried to make sure the hard drive didn't come unplugged but my hard drive is like glued on or something so I tried making sure it was connected but couldn't really check it. Tried a couple other things but nothing seems to be working, search online and youtube and still nothing, please help.

I have a Toshiba laptop running windows 7. It has been running like a well oiled machine since the day I got it.

I turned it off to watch TV, then when I turned it back on, the screen shows the Toshiba screen for about 1/4th of a second and then goes black.

If I hit F8, F10, or F12 nothing shows up. I have the biggest project of the semester due Tuesday so I really need some help.

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:Toshiba screen and then black screen only. No boot menu either.

How old is the laptop? It sounds like it's definitely a hardware problem. If it's still under warranty, I'd recommend sending it in. About your project, the only way to get that off of your computer is going to be to take apart the computer and plug the hard drive into another computer. You can buy an adapter (Laptop Hard-drive Bay to USB) for $20-40, they're smaller than a normal PC bay so you can't mount it inside a desktop computer.

I have a gateway laptop (SOLO 5350) and the screen was horribly ripped off(during car accident). Well when I connect my desktop 17" monitor to the port on the back of the laptop and when the windows xp home edition boot screen is finished I get a black screen although the cpu is still workig properly and the monitor is still on. I reboot and press f8 and try to go into safe mode but it just hangs on the screen with all the driver names on it. Can someone guide me in a good direction before I take it to a repair shop?

I disassembled my laptop upon suggestion of another poster after complaining of fan noise and freezing up.
Here is that thread:

Upon reassembling & turning on power, I can hear fan, and power light is on, but I get a black screen.
Went back through disassembling again. Still black screen.
Tried taking out the battery and re-seating it.
Tried powering on with the adapter only.
Tried taking out the hard drive and CD drive and powering on.

Help! I need this laptop for business asap.

Hey everyone, my Dell Inspirion Notebook has a problem that when I boot it up, I see the system begin, and it gives me the options for <F2> for Setup Options and <F12> for Boot Options. After this, it proceeds to a black screen with the single line blinking like in the Command Prompt. From here, the line keeps blinking and my operating system does not start up.

After rebooting several times, and running the startup diagnostics, my computer still hasn't gotten any better. I've tried to hit <F8> to enter safe mode, but my computer isn't allowing it.

Please help, I need this problem solved by tomorrow so I can submit papers for a class!

Try this:

1. Reboot while holding down the F8 key.
2. Choose safe mode with networking.
3. Google for the latest driver for your video card.
4. Download and install the new driver after uninstalling the old one.
5. Reboot your computer.

Also, you could try the repair option two or three times.

I don't want to nag, but when you're up and running, turn system restore back on - you know it makes sense.

A:Screen goes black after powering on Lenovo Z51

Hi LABinz , 
How was it if you connect it to an external monitor ?
Try it also on safe mode as this would isolate probable hardware or software issue . 
If the same non display black screen even on external monitor occur then it relates more of probable drivers or graphic card issue as it demands greater resolution than it is on safe mode.  
Furthermore, turning on the machine using the novo button would display a menu outside windows and should show up on the laptop screen (to isolate LCD / LCD cable issue).
Update us how things go.

Lenovo B50-30Hello,When I boot my laptop everything seems to be working.As soon as I enter my password and login to my windows account I get a black screen with nothing but a cursor.I am able to Ctrl-alt-delete, but the task manager wont open.The laptop ignores F1, F8 and F12. So I cant Boot in Safe mode or enter the BIOSI have error checked the HDD with my desktop and everything seemed fine.But it wasn't, the error check didn't solve anything.Is there anyone who knows what might be wrong with my laptop, and if it's repairable?- Mathieu

A:Lenovo, Black screen with cursor

You said you removed the HDD.With no HDD, the laptop should go to the setup screen of the BIOS.Thee you can set boot options. Set it to boot first from USB or CD.With your other PC prepare a boot CD or USB with some diagnostics.Boot diagnostics can be found elsewhere.For your laptop, this might work:Lenovo Bootable DiagnosticsDoes that work for you?,151265.0.html

I have a Lenovo n580 with win 8.1 installed. A few hours ago, while using it, the screen went completely black. I restarted by holding down the power button. The Lenovo logo appears, along with the circling balls to indicate booting, but nothing else. No desktop, no nothing. I tried the following instructions, but still have the same problem.

1. I turned off by holding down the power button.
2. Unplug, then remove the battery.
3. Held down the power button for 3 minutes. Plug lap back in.
4. Turn laptop on by holding down the power button (did not put the battery back in).
5. Lenovo logo appears, circling balls to indicate booting, still have a black screen.

I also use this laptop for work so I need to resolve this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I use Win 8.1. After installing Win updates, the PC worked fine for the rest of the day. When it went to sleep at night, the screen was black when I tried to wake it up in the morning. The lights were blinking so the PC was apparently working. I searched the net on my laptop and I restarted the PC with shift/F8 and on button. It worked just fine for one day. The next night it went to sleep and the screen remained black in the morning. I can turn it off and on, the lights are blinking. I tried rebooting with shift/F8, F1 and F12. None of these worked. I would appreciate suggestions.Thanks, Chris

Hi, I've been having troubles with my laptop screen. Upon reopening my laptop from sleep mode, the screen remains black instead of loading up the login screen. I've plugged in an HDMI external monitor and it displays fine so I know it is the laptop screen. Also if I restart the laptop, the laptop screen works fine. I've tried updating graphics drivers and adjusting external monitor options (Win+P) but with no success. Any suggestions on what I should do? I've had this laptop for a while now and there is no valid warranty.Thank you

I tried looking in the maintenance manual, but there are no mentions of what your blinking lights mean. I think you need to take it in for service.

Today when I turned on my laptop the screen didn't show any light, not even a blink although I can hear the normal starting tune, which shows that windows are starting but the screen is black, can anyone help? Tried to restart it but it's the same

I bought a Lenovo Y700 this week and I just realise that there are several (7) marks on screen under the antiglare protection. These marks are black and you can only see them only with white color on screen. These marks are not dead pixel neither stuck, they are something like dust under the screen protector.  Are anyone experience th?s problem??
