Preferred Solution: Black screen with multiple video playback

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.)

Ok im Running Windows XP Sp2 with a ATI Radeon 9600XT

Suddenly for no apparent reason my videos no longer playback. All Is ee is a black screen while sound seems to work perfectly.

This occured in windows media player so I downloaded crystal player and same thing. Same goes for any video playback online through websites.

I already tried re-installing video drivers and checking some settings.

Please does anyone know how I could possibly fix this??

PS this occurs for all types of video files avis, mepgs whatever. I also tried re-installing codecs to no avail

Hey guys.
I recently desc covered that besides VLC on my laptop all the other video player are not able to work properly (meaning,, Windows Media Player 12, Cyberlink PowerDVD12 and WMPC are able to play only the audio, but not the video, just black screen),, BUT with VLC is no problem playing any video format!! The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!
I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed (just after I discovered the problem).
Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks and have a nice day, hope we can resolve this. ))

A:No video playback only audio (black screen)

If it works with vlc tans nothing else, then I doubt it's your video card drivers. However, it may be the codex used by the different players.

Can you just use vlc? Are you having any other graphical issues?

A:Black screen while video playback (Audio only)

Can you simply give us an example of a video extension that will not play anymore in WMP, now that you have upgraded to Winn 8 and done several graphic driver updates in an attempt to fix your issue (eg, .avi files, .mpg files, etc)? It could very well be that the original codec is no longer supported in WMP but the fact that VLC works Ok tells me that your graphics' driver should not be the issue.

A:Black screen while video playback on any player, but VLC (audio works)

You may simply require a codec (code/decode) pack to enable video in other players, have you got any codecs installed ?

If not you could try k-lite codec pack or CCCP seem to be quite popular
You may also require matroska codecs for playing HD contect like .mkv files or HD .mp4

Not sure if this is a computer issue or not.

Sometimes when I watch a video online a black-checkerboard or random black squares pop-up on the video screen. They come and go all through the video playback. It happens on Facebook and a lot of other sites.

All of my drivers have been recently updated.

Anyone else noticed this?

Hi see3,

The issue could be related to Flash Player or video drivers. To isolate the issue please provide the following information:

1. From how many days are you facing this issue?
2. Does it happen only in one browser (i.e., in Internet Explorer) or even in other browser?
3. Also, have you checked if the issue occurs while playing a video files stored on the Hard Drive (i.e., sample videos or movies)?

For any clarifications feel free to contact me.

A:DVD playback produces randomised black screen! Please Help!

It's not my forte, troubleshooting video, but no one has reponded to you today, and I have time.

I would be inclined to try to rule out either software or hardware. I gather from your post that the problem happens on more than one DVD playing software ? That's important, because if it doesn't work in say, Media Player, but it does work in another software (whatever another software might be), that implies a corrupted software and re-installation should fix it.

However if it happens no matter what Player you use, it could mean the Hardware crapped out. So installing a different DVD player to test this theory might be instructive.

And in general terms, it's best to make note of things that are consistant and things that are not.

When you say 90% of the time, do you mean 90% of your DVDs? Do some DVD always work, and some Never Work. Or can the same DVD either work or not?

Also I assume that this thing used to work fine, and now it doesn't. Did something different happen, like new software, new hardware or something else. Like a power surge, lightning strike or somebody accidentally unplugging your machine while it was in the middle of something ? These kinds of "events" are important because they can save us a lot of time looking into dead-ends. It makes no sense to re-install a DVD (software) player, when a power-surge crisped the DVD hardware itself.

Also, it occurs to me to check the DVDs themselves. Take them to a friend's computer and see if they work fine there. If the problem moves, then you moved the problem.

When I watch videos, whether it's on youtube or hulu or DVDs, the video is only good when it's small. When I expand to full screen, it automatically gets jumpy.

It's the worse with It's not a buffer issue because it happens when there is a full buffer. There's a night and day difference from the small screen to full screen. It is not a 'pixelation' issue due to compressed video from The picture is relatively clear, it's just jerky (not a smooth frame rate, so to speak)

Any advice? The worst part is that my old laptop, a really crappy 4 year old dell, played all videos well.

Install and run superantispyware and check for malware.

Defrag your drive and make sure all your drivers (especially video) are up to date.

Hope that fixes it.

Hey all,
I am having problems with the screen freeing when running multiple windows (Chrome, office etc etc). When I try to swap between windows, I get a freeze and I am unable to do anything.
The cursor can be seen moving around the screen but has no effect in any area. The Windows Key doesn't ppear, nor can I tab into another programme.
If I try and start task manager to see which program is causing this, it will not appear over the frozen image.
Is there a way of telling from an event log what program is failing?

I built a PC in August and it runs very fast and plays games, videos and audio without issue. However, I have been getting occasional BSODs during youtube playback or when playing a video from my hard drive, even if i played the same video moments earlier without issue. I have updated all drivers windows updates, memtest to check ram but nothing seems to explain my PCs sudden desire to BSOD me.

I would be very very grateful if someone would have a look at some min-dumps for me and see if they can identify the issue as i have reached the limit of my computer diagnostic knowledge.

A:Intermitent BSOD during internet video playback or avi playback (Win7 Pro 64)

How many Passes did you allow for Memtest? I read your five most recent dumps and the were all of the same error as described below...

Your error is 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR and is described as "A fatal hardware error has occurred."

This error code and definition has replaced the older XP code 0x9C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION and though it is older the definition still is applicable: This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Honestly, this is a very difficult error to work with because as it says a clear diagnosis rarely comes forth and I have never seen a minidump with either error codes give a definitive answer. I know IT techs that don't like working with it. What makes it so difficult is that it can be any hardware in your system -- and I mean any. Your dumps simply cited hardware as the issue and nothing more definitive.

Here are some of the causes that were determined to be the source of 0x124/0x9C errors from posters here and abroad: NIC, DVD/CD drives, dust build up around the CPU that caused overheating of said CPU, bulging capacitors hidden by heatsink, corrupted memory, video card, psu, motherboard, and external harddrive connected by USB.

* Anything overclocked? If so set your hardware to factory specs.

Hello. I have some audio issues that are causing distortion whenever I watch videos on youtube or watch streams on twitch. I updated my flash and that didn't change anything. These issues just started within the last 3 days. I tried a system restore from two weeks ago and that didn't work. I double checked my sound drivers and they are up to date. This happens in both Firefox and Google Chrome. I started Firefox in safe mode with all addons disabled and it still happened. The distortion didn't really capture very well on the video even though I can hear it. You can hear it better in the beginning. And this happens on videos that are buffered, even if I wait 5 minutes, this still occurs. I can try a different video once I get back from school(have to leave right now) if you want to hear the distortion better.

A:Windows 7 - Multiple errors/BSODs/Black screen

It looks like you have a driver issue. Are you using native Win 7 drivers? I would suggest that you remove any non native drivers. Run a Windows update and see if it finds any drivers.

A:Win:32Patched-ck [Trj] in multiple files - black screen after WinXp Logo

FYI Many different scanners were tried but nothing was able to remove the Trojan.
The five infected files were system files which not cleanable with Windows running and deleting them would have rendered the O/S unusable.


It seems the problem is now fixed. The original drive was swapped for a new hard drive and Windows was reinstalled with all updates. The clean versions of the 5 infected files were copied to a USB drive. Using external drive adapters on a second computer the infected files were deleted from the original drive and the clean versions were copied into the folders in their place. The original - formerly infected drive now with the clean files substituted - was replaced in the original computer. Avast found the infections in a system restore archive and that was deleted. On reboot the original drive tested clean and all the installed applications seem to run fine.

If anyone could confirm this is a safe way to deal with this problem or suggest any tests to confirm the system is clean it would be welcome.

I convert video files to AVI and store on a ext HDD to playback through a USB connection on a home theatre system. After about an hour or so the video will freeze for a second or so then continue, this will continue a few times until the movie finishes.
I have also put a movie on a USB stick and the same thing happens so the only thing common to both is the home theatre.
Could it be that the information that is being supplied is too much or too fast for the theatre system and it can't keep up so it freezes?

Hope someone can help


A:video playback freezes on usb playback

If it were that the hardware "couldn't keep up", I would expect it to happen more every so many seconds or minutes. It is generally more noticeable and occurs soon after starting playback and is fairly consistent during the entire playback.

You could experiment with file types or encoding options to see if you can isolate the problem. AutoGK has a "standalone player" option.

Last week my wife was messing around with my computer and hooking it up to our other monitor, during this process you have to turn the resolution down. So all was fine until the following morning, i turned it on and all i got was a black screen. I can see nothing from the moment i press the power button although i can hear when it logs into windows.

From what i can tell she set the display at 600x400 or something to that nature, i've replaced the monitor lead, tried it on a plasma and three different monitors which all have the same outcome. All connections have been checked and at this point the only thing i can come up with is replacing the video card

Grateful if anyone has help or ideas.

Hi, all,

This just started a couple of days ago. WMP 11 will no longer play DVD movies - I get audio, but a black screen. I'm running XP SP3. I tried rolling back to WMP 10, but no change, so I reinstalled WMP 11, still no joy. VLC Media Player plays the DVD's just fine, but I kind of prefer WMP's interface and would like to get it working again. I did a search here and a general Google search, but didn't come up with any solutions.

Any and all suggestions will be very welcome!

A:Black screen with video drivers

Post the exact pw supply you have installed. 850W does not tell us much; corsair hx 850W or whatever tells us a LOT more.

Next since you can access the bios/uefi, post your temps and voltages; specifically the cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values.

I would really really invest in a monitor cable for troubleshooting. A dvi cable is all of $8 @the egg;

It would help for diagnosis of your problem.

I just bought a Geforce 640mb 8800 gts video card. When i'm playing games every once in awhile, well pretty often, my screen will go blank and i have to turn my LCD screen off and then back on and the screen will come back on. I thought it might have been overheating at first but the temp stays between 70c and 76-78c. I also don't know why this would cause me to restart my monitor and it would work again. Anyone know anything about this?

A:Screen goes black with new video card

Your 172.4 deg F is too hot (I think). I run an 8800. I have a constant temp readout on my desktop. Mine will idle around 129F. When gaming I reach 152F tops. Get an exhaust fan below the GPU to get that heat away. If you run a program that will give you all of the hardware temps, maybe you can spot what's getting the hottest.

I have a geforce 7900 GS, spec's are 2 gigs of ram, AMD 4600, VISTA 32 bit. It always worked, played oblivion and half life. Then I just stopped playing video games, and one day I came home...and my computer screen was pixelated, all overheated some how...when I wasn't even on the computer. Took the card out, let it cool down, put it back in, and it worked fine (didn't try any games). Then a few days later the same thing happened...but it DIDN'T work again. After trying to clean it, I put it back in...and I get a black screen when I boot up. I hear all the sounds, just no video. Is my card fried? Or is the connection just bad?

I have a problem with my video card (gforce 7900GS). After about 5 to 10 minutes of idle my screen will go black and the fan on the video card will increase in speed. It dose not come back on until i flip the switch on the back of the power supply off and restart the computer. I checked the card temp with Ntune and it is at 50c right before it goes out. This card is about 5 months old and i have never had a problem before. Also, i am not overclocking and all drivers and software are up to date. Has anyone heard of an issue such as this?

A:screen goes black and fan on video card speeds up.

I have the exact same problem with a 7900GS. If I leave the computer on for a couple days it will almost always do it and once it does it will keep doing it every time I start up until I just leave it off for awhile. I don't believe it is a temperature issue because everything looks normal and I am not doing anything terribly taxing. I wish I knew of a way to fix this, but at least after reading this I am pretty certain that the problem is isolated to the video card so I might just replace it .

So i'm almost sure this is not a browser problem, but a particular problem with youtube or something related. I've tried re-installing firefox and safari, but the same thing happens. I can see videos from other websites, the problem is only with youtube.

A:Black screen after playing Video Games

i would check the the temperatures of the GPU with msi afterburner and see what it idles at and see what it loads at when gaming your card might over heating or it might just be failing. also you might want to reseat your RAM and GPU and in your bios disable onboard audio to see if it fixes your issue. Check your even logs in windows and see if any odd errors come up. Finally use speccy > Speccy - Download and publish your report by going to file/publish snapshot like below then link us to your snapshot so we can see if anything looks odd.

Hello Hopefully someone could help me out with this I Black card video screen following replacement ve been pulling my hair out on a daily basis troubleshooting this issue The other day I was cleaning my room listening to Pandora on my PC From what I could remember Pandora was the only application I had open at the time All of a sudden my computer flips out and the song that was playing started skipping rapidly and my computer screen went blank Since I couldnt see the screen I had to do a hard reboot I restarted my system and it came back up asking me to Black screen following video card replacement start normally or in safe mode I started normally thinking it wasnt as bad as it really is It came to the log in screen and I entered my credentials The system came up but only one of two monitors I have dual monitors set up one Dell Monitor and one LCD TV turned on Then about minutes later it did the same thing the screen went black and I was not able to do anything at Black screen following video card replacement that time I restarted my system again and this time I started in safe mode minutes later same thing I opened my computer to clean it out and noticed how dusty it was in there I aired out all the dust I looked at the fan on my video card and it looked really dusty like the fan was too dusty to even move I took the video card out and noticed that some of the cylinoides on it were popped like it got too hot So I figured that the video card was done I went out and purchased another one a GeForce GTS GB BIT DDR PCI Expressx I installed it and now I cant even get the system to boot up All the fans go on there is still an amber light coming from my motherboard like it always has But I get a black screen nothing comes up at all I dont even know if my motherboard recognizes the new card because my monitor wont even pick up a signal when I turn on the PC the light on the monitor stays amber like their is no communication to the video card I m thinking the PC doesnt recognize the new card because I havent installed the new drivers for it yet But since I cant see the screen I cant even install the drivers The worst thing is that I DO NOT have an on-board monitor hook up to my motherboard My motherboard is an MSI P N SLI Platinum I tried pulling the card out and putting the old one back in to see if maybe I could get one more life out of it just so I could go in long enough to install the new drivers But my PC did the same thing as when I put the new card in The weird thing is that the fan that is on the card turns on the new one and the old one but there is still no connectivity going to my monitor screen is still black I dont know what to do next anyone have any suggestions I would really appreciate it Thanks in advance nbsp

Well first off I have windows 7 3 gigs of ram dual core amd processor and a 8900gtx+ i have 32 bit windows and ths is my problem.

This only happens when I (think) my video card is used more often.

Sometiems when i run 3 clients of this game i play called dekaron which is not hard to run i can run like 5 b4 it slows down. anyway every once in a while one of the clients will bug out causing my (entire) screen to flash and stuff dissapears then if i close the game (the bugging client) it stops. even tho i have it windows my background desktop bugs too anyway. one time i let it go on and do what it was doing and i love video signal to my monitor and then it came back and crashed the game itself. Im not sure wuts going on but it would be nice for some advice.

A:Video Problem (Screen Flash / Black)

Are you over clocking any?

Check your P/S and make sure that you have a good steady power stream.

So, a few months ago, I got a new video card (9800gt GeForce) and I had to do the regular stuff, uninstall onboard card, set bios to boot PCI-E... But today I turned my computer on and the screen was black. So I plugged the monitor cable into the onboard slot, and it worked...? So I checked bios, and it still said PCI-E, and I downloaded drivers for the 9800, but it still doesn't work. I don't get what happened, so please help!
PS: I have Vista.

A:Black screen. Video card not working?

The integrated unit shouldn't even work with the dedicated adapter installed, so there is likely something wrong with the card itself. It's not a driver conflict, because the graphics card should operate without drivers. Try reseating the card in the PCIe slot and connecting the monitor back to the card, or the other port. If it still doesn't work, make sure you have the power dongle connected properly and that your power supply is working normally (you can check in BIOS to read the voltage ratings).

I was having problems with WMC so read an online thread to delete all files from

Now (whether related or not) I cannot play any video in windows. In WMC all playback is on a black screen and the mouse pointer has gone. On Kodi the sound starts for a few seconds on a video then the whole program crashes. However strangely video plays fine from WMP?!

I have tried reinstalling Windows whilst keeping my personal files. However the problem remains. I've tried reinstalling graphics drivers and catalyst manager but no joy. I tried a system restore but all restore points come back with error messages. I tried a system refresh but even though I have the genuine original discs it says they are not valid... HELP!

A:BSOD or black screen during youtube video

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help

Hi, i think is just some power issue to the card, or fine you may have changed to pci, but would suggest that you put it into AUTO mode so that the system can select the default display of its own, the other would be to make sure that the card is working fine, is it tested to meet standards or it those fake chinese cards, i would try it in another computer to be sure that its not bad.

I just installed my new video card without installing the new drivers OR disabling the onboard memory. Knowing that I screwed up my computer boots fine but I do not get a connection to my monitor. I tried removing the video card and using the onboard with no result. Need help... I am currently using my iPad to find solutions...

A:New video card install.. black screen?

I would first go into your motherboards BIOS and check and see if any video options are selected. Like, use only (onboard video), or use a (video card) only, or see if things are set to just (automatic detect). I'm having a funny little feeling that somewhere during this process, your systems BIOS has got haywire. If things are set in your BIOS as they should be I would recommend re-setting the BIOS, mainly done by a special CMOS jumper located on the motherboard. If you not know what I am talking about, please supply your motherboards make & model and we will see if we can guide you through the process.

Well, after much fiddling and a heap of help from here I finally got Vista installed on my PC.
Unfortunately, one of the same problems persists that caused my kids to trash the original hard drives. The monitor turns black and goes to sleep but the content still runs (including audio) there is no way to wake the monitor other than pressing the button to shut it down.
I am probably missing a driver, especially now since I don't have everything updated. But I think it's odd that this is happening again. Is it Vista or could it be Vista and my video card not getting along?

So, I had no issues with my laptop (HP DV6119US) until I upgraded on the memory last night. This morning at startup, I get the power buttons and the laptop appears to be on, however, I have a black screen. I shutdown and restarted, pressed F10 and I get video. Currently running a Hard Disk Self Test, No issues.

OS: MS Windows XP w/2 Kingston 1 Gb DDR2 RAM modules.

Question: Can anybody tell me what's going on with my system? Laptop was running fine, perhaps I should remove and re-install memory modules?? Or, go back to "as issued" memory of 1 Gb total RAM?

Update: I see the HP "splash" at start-up, and quickly disappears, but nothing more than the follow-on black screen.

Thank you,

First of all, if this doesn't belong here, I'm sorry and please put it in the right place.

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8 since a while but I didn't had the time to ask for help. So now here's my problem.

If I watch a video with Windows Media Player, then the video only has sound, the screen is black.
If I watch a video with the Video App from Windows 8, then it also only shows a black screen. (Audio works) After a few seconds the App crashes.
Also every App that has to do something with a video (like a YouTube App) keeps crashing.
With Internet Explorer (App and Desktop) before the same. (for example : Youtube) Now it seems to work, don't know why.

The only way to watch videos is using VLC.

So that's it. What can I do to solve my problem.

Thank you,

A:Windows 8 | Video (black screen), only sound

I think it is safe to say that the only Application that CAN view videos IS VLC. They removed DVD support from Windows Media Player and I have never been able to watch anything but DVDs from Media Center. The "Video" tile will not play anything but what content you buy from Xbox. I have found NO Tile/Metro app that CAN play any videos.

In WMP, if the video is Black, then the Video Codec is not installed for the Content you are trying to view. You can download the k lite codec pack, or something similar. But I don't like those cos sometimes they install Malware.

You can just keep using VLC which is what I use, it is a better Video Player for all codecs, and just about every codec is built in so you do not have to install these excess codec packs.

I replaced my old video card with a XFX Geforce MX4000 PCI and the screen flashes to black every minute or so. I'm running WinME on a Compaq Presario 5011CL with an Athlon 1.2. I needed a larger power supply for the new card, so I upgraded the power supply before installing the card. Here's what else I've tried:

- Refresh rate. I've tried everything. "Adapter default," "Optimal," 75hz, you name it, it doesn't help.

- I tried the card in a different PCI slot. I moved it to the "first" slot, the one closest to the cpu. No difference.

- I've uninstalled the nvidia drivers and re-installed. No difference.

A:Black Screen [video card problem]

Good Evening roymajesty, your symptom is descriptive of a Videocard problem.
The reason the Safemode operates is due to it using a simple video mode.
Try knocking all your video settings back to defaults and reduce your screen size to something like 640 X 480.
That should allow the thing to operate.

Unpower the machine, remove the power plug from the PSU, remove the video card then carefully inspect it for free fan motion and sniff-check it.
If all is well carefully refit it, and repower the machine, check the fan for proper operation.

You could try obtaining a driver removal tool for your particular card, (card manufacturer's site) then remove the driver.
Obtain and properly install a new driver and check operation, if all is well try increasing your video settings to your normal area.

It is possible your driver may be corrupted or some kind of error.

If the problem persists it is likely your card may have a problem.

Others will have different ideas.

My Dell LCD flat screen started saying "no video input" all of a sudden. It did that once or twice and then it just went to a black screen. I tried restarting and still nothing. When I restart the fan just blows really hard and the computer makes weird beeping noises. I plugged monitor in to another pc and it worked fine so it's not the monitor. Is it the graphics card? The computer seems to start up. Everything was working fine up to this point. Runs XP. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Hi guys, I have a Dell E510 desktop comp. Its running a 3.2 Pentium D with 2 GB RAM, and it came with one of those wimpy ATI radeon X600 Video cards and I wanted to upgrade for better video game play. I went to dell and got one of there recommended cards. The new card I installed is a NEW nVidia GeForce 6800 PCI-E x16 256MB DVI VGA. I first deleted my old video drivers and carefully installed the new card and upon firing it up to install the new video drivers the screen is completely black. The video card's fan fires up and the monitor gets power just is completely black! Im not sure what to do, i've checked the connections of the video card and cables. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance, Chase.

A:New Video Card Installed, black screen now!

Just checking but did you uninstall the old graphics driver from the Add and Remove Programs or did you mistakenly try to uninstall through the Device Manager?

After uninstalling and cleaning with the driver cleaner pro the drivers for my new ATI Sapphire HD 3650 AGP graphics card I restarted the PC only to get a black screen after the windows xp splash screen. I used the card for about a day, but had a problem with freezeing and decided to install older drivers. Now here's the problem. I can not boot in normal, safe, agp or any other mode. I tried it all a couple of time but still get the black screen. I have tried with the windows cd, and tried to repair, reinstall, format and reinstall my Windows xp but again with the same result. I have changed the card for my old one but still the same problem. Since everything was fine (except for freezing) for about a day I assume that it is not a hardware problem.
I would use some help right about now.
Thank you.

A:Black Screen/No Video Input/Reboot Loop

If your boot disc boots the computer and you have video, then there probably isn't anything wrong with the video card.
Press F8 at bootup and get to the Advanced Boot menu and Last Known Good Configuration. If available, try VGA mode. Or Safe Mode with Networking and Update your Video Driver from the nVidia site.

ASUS Z97-A with i5-4460 @ 3.2ghz. Win10 (latest Insider build). AMD R7-200 video card.
Unpredictably, my monitor goes black except for a brief message that there is no HDMI. Usually a cold boot is required to restart, then the system runs in a normal fashion.
The Event Viewer doesn't show any related events. System fans and power continue to run when the screen goes black. I presume it's the video card, but before I throw a couple of hundred dollars at the problem, I'd like to know how to check if it might be something else.
Also...what mid-range cards do you folks like for desktop and mid-range (non-twitch?) gaming? I play a lot of Witcher 3 for example-- and the video card performs adequately.
Thanks very much.

A:How to confirm that black screen originates due to my video card?

You could remove the card and see if the graphics work with the GPU from the processor.

I recently upgraded from an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro to an x850 Pro, and problems started up from when I've first started trying to use it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, tried to fool around with it all...but to no avail. After installing the drivers off of the CD or the latest Catalyst/Omega drivers off of the internet, and restarting the computer...after loading XP it just goes to a black screen with a small gray line on against the white side of the monitor. I'm not quite certain what is causing this, or how to fix it...Help, pwease? >.>

The motherboard the card is in is an Asus P4S800.

A:Solved: Computer Boots, Black Video Screen

Welcome to TSG---

Sounds like the machine clears POST and loads the display driver without issue---sounds like that to you, right?

If the computer's booting properly, and the display shows a fully loaded Windows desktop with no error messages when it finally shows up, I'm suspicious of the monitor.

Have you tried another monitor?
You can also turn off the monitor, disconnect it from the computer, leave it powered off overnight, then power it up in the morning when it's not connected to the computer. See if you get a self-test message--it might say "no signal", or show a coloured test pattern.

If you don't see the message right away, walk away for five minutes, come back and check again. Power it off and back on if you have to.

i use xp pro and upgraded to media player 9. Now the problem is that while i'm playing a video file after sometime the screen goes BLACK.i stopped the video and played it again still the screen remains blank. This problem goes only after i start another video. this happens both in compact and fullscreen mode and for every video.
i observed that this thing happens on the later half of the video generally after 90%-95% of the video.Sometimes if i roll the mouse it goes but this does not solve the problem all the time. I stopped the screen saver to find that this is not the problem

please help as i liked this player and dont want to loose it

thank you

Sorry to ask yet another question, but I'm trying to install a GeForce FX 5200 PCI video card. I have had the same problem before, but need would like to fix it permanently. After installing the drivers (updated for my pc from, too), a restart with the card in fails. Everything works well until the Windows XP splash screen disappears, at which point the screen goes black and the power light on the monitor turns from green to amber. What am I doing wrong?
