Freeze - Black Screen - Can't Start Windows

Q: Freeze - Black Screen - Can't Start Windows

Was in the middle of writing an email when my screen froze for a minute or so, then computer shut down. When restarting I get option to repair or start windows normally. If I start normally I just get black screen for a while then computer shuts down again.
Tried the repair option several times but still the same outcome.
I am able to boot into safe mode. I have run chkdsk /r and if found no problems. I have tried setting back to the last two restore points and no luck.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

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?

A:Acer won't start, Black screen / Windows failed to start

Hello noob and welcome to Seven Forums.

Can you get into Safe Mode via the Advanced Boot Options menu? If yes, you can check for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two in the SFC tutorial.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

Safe Mode

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Another possibility from Safe Mode is to try rolling back your computer to a date/time prior to this problem occuring using a system restore point.

System Restore

If the above desn't help, one of the Forum experts prepared a troubleshooting guide for failure to start issues.

Please help?!?

Had a couple of laptop crashes and re-booted too quickly to log errors. Happened again today and since have been unable to get past entering my password in start-up. Enter my password and the screen freezes. Able to access my desk top via safe mode and the net via with networking where have added RegCure, but still the problems re-occurs. Also tried running virus scan in safe mode, again showing now threats, tried logging on as another user account with and without passwords and system restores to previous dates, all failing. Have checked the net for other possible solutions, but getting no where. Have no WP XP cd, so unable to perform recovery restore.

It's obviously something to do with the drivers or recently installed hardware, which I don't recall adding recently. These issues have occured whilst online and have the new NAV version.

Any ideas please?

A friend of mine asked me to look at his old XP machine because it simply will not fully startup. It does make it through the initial boot routine and the "Windows XP" splash screen appears but, shortly after that, the screen goes black. All you can see is a black screen with a white cursor in the middle of it. The system does not respond to mouse or keyboard input.

I used a Hiren's Boot CD boot disk to look around his system. He has about 40% free space left on the hard drive which seems to function correctly. I am presently running a virus scan (via the Hiren's Boot CD).

I've never seen an XP machine do this so I'm not sure what is going on. I believe he is running SP3 but I'm not certain of this because I can get it fully loaded to check.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Windows 7 Will Not Start at All-Just Black Screen

 Unfortunately it sounds like hardware problems.  It's possible that your CD/DVD drive is the cause of your not being able to boot from discs, so I'd try cleaning it using an inexpensive kit you can buy at most stores that sell computers.  Since it won't boot from flash drives though, it might be more serious.  You could try getting a new SODIMM stick and replacing your existing RAM to see if it's the RAM since that's the next least expensive thing you could do (probably $25 give or take for a 2 GB DDR3).  If that doesn't work, I'd suspect motherboard problems, possibly bad caps.  That would be expensive to repair, possibly more than the value of the computer (I'd guess $250 to $300 in local repair shops).  If you have data you don't want to lose, you could remove the hard drive, put it in an enclosure, and plug it into a USB port on a working computer.

Hi there,

When I tried to boot this morning, just at the point where the blue screen with the desktop choices should come up, the screen went black and nothing happened -- no drive access. I tried more than once; on subsequent tries I attempted to use "last settings that worked" or whatever that option is, but with the same result. I'm now on a backup hard drive I have in my machine, but I know the main drive is still working fine.

What should I do next?

Thanks so much for your help.

Best wishes,

Hi everyone, I'm sort of new to these tech forums. I'm here to seek help for a problem I have when I start up my computer. Before windows loads up and brings me to the desktop, I get this black screen for 30 seconds, no error messages, nothing, just a 30 second black screen. I've tried so many things, but with no result. I realised it has something to do with the hard drive, or the way I install windows / create a new partition before I format, because I put my hard drive with its current xp installation in another computer, and I still got the 30 second black screen. I refered to the support part of the microsoft site for help, but that site needs help more than I do... Anyone know how to solve this problem? Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

A:30 second black screen before windows start up

does the same thing happen when you start in safe mode? you can select safe mode by pressing F8 when windows starts to boot.

if it doesn't you could start up as normal. then click on start>run
type
msconfig
then deselect all under the startup tab, except what ever antivirus software you have listed in there. see does that help.

if i choose normal startup, it begins to load the and u can see the loading bar but then it just goes black........but the laptop is obviously still on just everything black. i can startup using safe mode though.

i think its because i shut it down manualy by pressing on the power button because its an old laptop and it seemed to freeze i had a bit torrent program on. but i used to do that all the time and have nothing happen to it. i froze once before too and i did the same thing and it could still startup fine.

its the first time iv had this problem with this laptop.

also iv tried to system restore to yesterdays date just a while ago and it didnt work.

If you start up from safe mode and do a normal shut down then try and start up regularly, do you still get it shutting down on you?

I'm trying to connect my new pc with a SyncMaster 940bw monitir. The screen stays black during setup (BIOS) phase and operates flawlessly when windows XP Pro (SP3) starts. I check the pc in a lab and all hardware devices work flawless.

The system includes the following components:

Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 3.0GHz
Samsung 1TB 32 MB 7200RPM
Seasonic SS-500ET Active PFC

I checked my device manager and found no exclamation symbol.

When I connect the unit to another Samsung monitor (SyncMaster 173v) and works as expected.

When I connect the SyncMaster 940bw to another unit, it works as expected.

Hi, I'm in trouble...I was about to use my friends new ASUS laptop this morning, and soon the Windows update started. But after a while, the battery was out because the plug was not connected. So that I restarted. But this time normal windows 7 looked like started with comment updating something. But it took very long time and next time when I looked at it, it was just black screen.

After that I shut it down and restarted. But nothing happened on the screen. I tried to press Alt+F10 at the same time, but didn't work.

Please someone let me know how to fix it!!! My friend said there was no recovery cd when he bought it.

Thanks in advance.

A:Black screen and cannot start windows

Hi,

I would suggest booting the system in ?Safe Mode/ Safe Mode with networking?. If the system boots fine in ?Safe Mode/ Safe Mode with networking? then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine.

Hello I've recently been having trouble getting Windows to boot normally on my desktop black Windows screen 7 start, won't Whenever I turn on my computer I see the Windows starting screen and then it hangs at a black screen There Windows 7 won't start, black screen are no error messages it's just a blank black screen I can boot into Safe Mode just fine I'm using Windows Home Premium -bit Service Pack I've tried Startup Repair Last Known Good Configuration updating drivers and none of those fixed it I ran a disc check in the System Recovery command prompt twice and both times it hangs for several Windows 7 won't start, black screen hours with the message Correcting error in index I for file Someone advised me that this could mean a failing HDD I know very little about hard drives so I wanted to get another opinion to see if that is truly the case or if there are other options I could explore before having to replace the HDD Any help I can get is greatly appreciated

A:Windows 7 won't start, black screen

Probably a failing hard drive.
 
[edit: Well, I should say Back up your files first,]
 
Run gsmartcontrol and do the short test (don't do the long test, because it would be better to backup your files first before stressing the drive) and look at the SMART info on there. That will tell you if the drive is failing.
 
Then, if it is failing, first backup any files you don't want to lose, then, if it's a seagate drive, burn the iso of seatools for dos and burn it to a cd and boot to the cd. From there you can "repair" the drive, but keep in mind the drive is no longer trustworthy (assuming it is actually failing), this "repair" just hides the broken sectors of the drive basically, so windows will run better. Then the drive will either keep getting worse, or be ok for a long time (no way to know).

When I start the computer (DELL Inspiron 610) it runs the DELL screen giving the Option for F2 (Bios) or F12 (Boot Option).

Then goes to a black screen with curser. Nothing can be done on that screen.

I have ran the XP Reinstall software for Recovery. That takes me to a C:\Windows prompt in a DOS screen. I can CD C: and see all the files. Did a CHKDSK /r and everything was fine.

I ran the Reinstall to Repair the current install. Goes through the whole Windows install process with the 100% progress bar and then restarts. STILL goes to black screen.

I then ran a complete reinstall of Windows. Same outcome.

I pulled the hard drive and can open all the files using it as an external drive. So it seems to be OK.

What must I do to boot up???

Thanks

A:Windows will not start - black screen

You can boot into console mode (using recovery option).
Can you press F8 and boot into windows safe mode?
I think you are missing a graphics driver and your windows is booting into a resolution
that your monitor cannot display.

Booting into safemode then trying to install either monitor ot graphics card drivers may
fix this,

Anyway, just as I stated aove, I have a black screen on when I start my pc. I don't hear any beep when I turn it on, i hear the fan working though. I did try to clean the fan and take the gpu out but that won't seems to solve it. Anyone know what seems to be the problem? I'm really not that techy about pc. Is the problem the hard drive, gpu, motherboard or anything else? I need help badly. Thanks in advance!

A:Black screen windows won't start

See if a BIOS hardware/software reset fixes the problem. It often does in these strange situations.
Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector.
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." ( Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English)).
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard, and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware.

Do a System Restore to before you installed the ps3 controller software, see if that resolves the problem. The easiest way to start SR is click on Start then type system restore and press enter.

- format and reinstall win ME, same thing

- look into the BOIS try to see what has changes, nothing

A:black screen when windows start

So can you still get to bios? I have seen a problem where a computer would start to load up, go through to the xp splash screen then everything would go black. It looked as though the monitor was turning off. It turned out to be a video problem. The way i got around it was to use a tv through the video card and i re-installed the video drivers. But i don't know if you have that option. What video card do you have?

When I turn on the laptop, it loads as normal, to which I can go to bios, etc, but once the page is passed, the laptop turns to a black screen, and in the top left corner the white _ flashes once, and then that is it, I cannot get passed this point.

I have tried loading up in recovery etc, but the same thing happens, and will not pass the black screen.

I will run a windows disc tonight and see if it will accept that, but for now I am stuck at work so I am just wondering if there are any other solutions that may get me passed this screen in advance.

Thank you

Is there any tests I can do once it loads up again.

There's your problem right there. Logs or nothing like that tell me this. It's just something I know.

This below really needs to be removed for a stable machine, but if you really need this badly for something, you can instead try to update it or leave it be if there is no update, after you see how BitDefender removal fixes your shutdown issues. But at a very basic level, it needs to go:

USB was responsible for your crashes. Highly likely BitDefender as cause of that too (or the vuhub driver above). For good measure, update USB 3.0 driver from motherboard maker, if available and install any updates available to anything you connect to the machine by USB at all.

I turned on my computer (Compaq Presario 5000--Windows xp) this morning to find that it could not get past the Compaq screen. Seemed to be frozen. Couldn't even get to Safe Mode. I switched it off and restarted only to get the same results. Upon searching on line for hours to find a solution, I disconnected all power supplies and pulled the battery off the motherboard. Now I get nothing but a black screen with a small blinking line in the upper left hand corner with a v01.05 in the bottom left hand corner and a Compaq (F10=Setup) in bottom right corner. Is it time for a new computer?? And if so... is there any way I can get some info off it before I toss it? I back up often but there are a few pics I would like to have.

When I start up my computer I have a black screen show up.... I then have to choose between two windows 7 which are highlighted....

I can enter down and go to safe mode or other options.
I do not know why this is happening on each start-up.
I think perhaps there are still two copies of the windows 7 Operating system on the computer. I had to do a reinstall and I assume one was not removed.

How can I correct this situation?

Thanks for your support.....

you cam try the, following:
open "system configurations" (msconfig), on the boot tab (second one), in the window should be all your booting options, delete the one you don't want to be there.
just make sure you are in the correct windows.

Your USB devices may have tried to protect themselves from a power surge and shut down. Do the following to reset the ports. Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.

My computer starts up, I get the login screen, I login and the screen is completely black. Though I am still able to use Task Manager through Ctrl+alt+Delete and any other option in there.

Anyone have a fix to this, or a way I can use System Restore without having to login? ( Note, I upgraded to Windows 8.1 digitally )

Try the suggestions near the bottom of the page. It appears to be a common problem where it hasn't uninstalled properly. I woul boot in safe mode. Whislt you are at the login screen, don't login but hold down the shift key (keep holding it) and click restart from the icon in the bottom right corner. You can either try to deleted the files or restore from safe mode.

If you installed Windows to an added partition, after having already installed Linux, that could be the problem. Windows XP must usually be installed first, unless you know all the tricks.

Hi all!

My other laptop will not start up at all. I have Windows XP. When I turn it on, this message displays on a black screen:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or currupt:
system32\DRIVERS\isapnp.sys

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

And nothing continues from there. I don't know what to. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone have any ideas what happened or what I can do?

Do you have another user account you can try logging in with?

If you don't log in as administrator normally, at the log in screen type administrator and your admin password. If you have the login screen that shows icons, press cntrl+alt+del twice and the standard log in window will appear.

It's possible that an application is attempting to load at start up that cannot complete and keeps the computer from finishing it's boot up. Another user profile might not have this same issue.

If you have another account to sign in with, give it a shot and let us know.

It will be more easy to diagnose if it is not intermittent.A good start is to use Clean Boot to see if you can work out what is causing it: http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-perf...Also see if it does it in Safe Mode (see link on page).Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Every time I enter my password my screen just goes black with only my cursor visible, after about an hour or so my start menu was visible but I still couldn't do anything. Everything was black and empty. Is there a fix for this? I'm attempting a system restore/restart but if that does not work what are my options?
Also whenever I do open up my computer it says something about a media failure. I'm not sure if this is in regards to my graphics card as it tells me the card itself is running fine.
My computer is a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series.
PS: Is there an easier way to access the troubleshooting menu? It took me an hour to access it no matter how many times I pressed the function keys, it only seems to open whenever I constantly force reset my computer...

Turned on the Dell this morning....would not load windows. All I get is a black screen. I tested monitor, and it is ok. I can hold the start button in for about 10 seconds, and the computer has a rush of fan, then blinks and goes to 3 green lights across the front, but will not shut off. . I tried putting a WINDOWS 7 REPAIR CD in the tray and boot, but still will not go to windows....just a black screen, The only way to get the computer to shut down is to physically unplug. The lights are on the front panel, and the power button is also on... and only go off with it unplugged..
 
After I unplug the computer, wait for about 5 minutes and restart.....it blinks the CD drive, and goes to the 3 green lights on the front and wont start just freezes with the green lights on front.

Hi,
Not to be a smart A but the answer is yes. Could be either. If you have a monitor you can plug into the laptop that might help eliminate one. Is there any HDD activity [blinking light] to indicate thae drive is active? If both are non-op then I'd look at the power supply

A:Windows XP won't start; black screen w/ movable cursor

The only time I ever used that recovery option on a Vaio, it performed a destructive return to factory settings with no further warning so I recommend leaving that one alone for the time being. Tap F8 to bring the Safe Mode menu up and try the option for VGA settings, which might just let your graphics card show with reduced functions. If you can get in that way, try updating the drivers for the graphics in Device Manager.

As for getting the files out, you could Google for Hirens BootCD and download that, burn it to a disk and use MiniXP to gain access to your files and move them to memory sticks of an external hard drive. Using MiniXP would also tell you if the graphics are working but that your own system lacks some files or settings somewhere.

Hi, I'm really hoping someone can help me. My wife's laptop (Dell Inspiron E1505) won't start windows XP. It goes from the dell startup screen and then just goes black. It doesn't seem to be a monitor issue. She told me that the day this happened she got a warning about a trojan virus. I downloaded the XP recovery console on another computer and was able to boot it directly from the cd drive. I've only run chkdsk on it and that's about as far as I got. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Also as a note, I cannot boot in safe mode either.

Thanks.

When I am playing games Like Team Fortress 2 and Command and conquer my PC locks up with a black screen and sound loop. There is no particular time when it happens, sometimes it takes an hour or two and then happens every ten to fifteen minutes. and sometimes it happens after twenty minutes and sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

A:Black screen freeze up

If it only happens when you are playing games, and at different times during the games, it's probably a graphics card issue. You may want to install and graphics card fan to keep the temp down, or possibly consider upgrading your graphics card.

I would first suggest running a quick diagnostic on it, search for the burn in diagnostic tool from the downloads section of the site and let it run, it will test your graphics card.

Hi -

What web browser are you using? (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome etc)

Just looks like your saved form information within your browser has been deleted. If, you log back in to these sites (Facebook, TSF etc) and accept any dialog (or checkbox) that asks you whether you want the form information (username/password etc) to be saved that should take things back to how there were before.

As for the black screen, it is difficult to tell what caused in, however if it should happen again, reply here, and I will attempt to assist in finding the cause/solution.

Let me know how you get on.

hallo dear experts,

my system crashed yesterday due to gpu overheating. now it boots till windows animated logo but at the point right when welcome screen usually comes there is nothing now but a moveable mouse cursor on a completelly black background.

now i have following stuff to get back to normal: two very old restore points and a recently created macrium reflect system image but no repair disc. i will be very happy, if there is a way to use the image since i know that some of you prefer macrium reflect insted of microsofts system image solution. unfurtuntelly my restauration points are way to old (april 2011). ill be very glad to hear your suggestions

A:Black Screen but cursor after crash; after windows start animation

You can create the Macrium Reflect disc on any system running Windows. Just make sure you create the disc for the correct version of Windows and the correct 32-bit or 64-bit version.

If your external drive is recognized by the Linux version of Macrium, you have even more options and can create the Macrium disc with any OS.

Do you have access to another system, or friends who could let you use theirs?

I recently did a hitmanpro, piriform cc cleaner, part of defrag, and when hitman pro rebooted my computer it now logs to a black screen when I log in. I tried doing a restore point, but nothing. The desktop and stuff shows up in safe mode but in regular mode it's just a black screen with a cursor and I have to manually start explorer.exe through task manager. What do? x-x

A:Windows 7 64 logs to black screen- have to manually start explorer.exe

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,

If Hitman Pro rebooted the PC it was because if was trying to clean some malware, right? Then I guess Hitman Pro is stuck/failing or the infection is preventing the PC to start.
If you don't have a system image backup you can restore, you can try using a rescue disk to clean your system. For example Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

Another thing you can try is Using Last Known Good Configuration - Windows Help

A:Windows 7 Black Screen Appearing Withing a Minute of Start Up

You had the Radeon card before and everything was fine, right? I don't see the card itself as the issue if that's the case.

When EXACTLY does the screen go black and fans run towards 100%?

Is there anything you installed or modified software-wise or hardware-wise before you shut down yesterday?

Do you own a dog that perhaps could've urinated on your computer?

A:Windows 7 Fails to start: Black Screen with mouse cursor

My laptop just had same problem. couple of hours ago.

What i did was I press f8 when windows were starting up and then I clicked on "Repair system"

Afterwards man options came like system restore, memory diagnostic etc. I clicked on Command prompt then type this command without quotes. "chkdsk /f /r C:"

This command will do chkdsk and repair any hard drive issue. My laptop seems working for a moment.

After Windows start up all I can see is a black screen and an active mouse cursor.
I am able to get task manager to open and even to activate Chrome (from task manager).
Other things doesn't work (e.g. can't open folders).

I've checked the "shell" value in regedit (it's "explorer.exe") but I really don't know what else to do.
I'm working with Windows 7 Professional.


Any ideas?

Thanks!

Work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
which try everything possible to start the OS, leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore or do the superior Clean Reinstall Windows 7

If this is the Dell in your specs then there is a built in Dell Hardware Diagnostics from F12 Menu to test your hardware first. If necessary to reinstall and not run Recovery, be sure to save the Dell Utilitiy partition to keep these bootable diagnostics.

Please wait is stuck, with a black screen. greatly appreciated

A:Windows start up as usual. Please wait is stuck, with a black screen.

You will have to plug the keyboard as PS2. PS2 keyboards are not very expensive and a usb-to-ps2 adapter is about ?1. I am afraid that there is no way to get the USB keyboard recognized before the drivers have loaded.

Hello,
I bought this new computer 2 months ago and i've been having some problems.
It randomly freezes while playing games (mostly WoW) or just doing other things, first the picture freezes while the mouse is still working, then the sound and the mouse cursor stop and the screen goes black saying "No Signal" and after few seconds the computer restarts.
I have attached the last 2 minidump files (only have 2 since i re-installed the windows not long ago).
I bought a new PSU few weeks ago and still i get the same crashes.
My computer configuration is:
MB: Asus M4N98TD Evo
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.2GHz
VGA: Asus EAH5750 1GB DDR5
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Kingston
HDD: WDC WD1600JS
PSU: Delux ATX 800W P4

Can you help me about this problem? Because at the moment i have no idea what might be causing the problems.
Thank you.

Then the cursor froze again, then black screen, and now I can not reboot again. I noticed that wuauclt.exe (supposedly windows update) was running as well as some other suspicions apps before it froze. What would you recommend I use to eliminate any malicious software, provided I can get this machine booted up again?

A:intermittent freeze and black screen

You didn't post the make and model of the motherboard. Does it have integrated graphics? If it does, pull your graphics card and use the integrated to see if this makes a difference.

Edit:

Does the computer boot to a working state now?

when testing the ram did you run memtest with one stick in at a time?

what is the make model and wattage of your power supply? if youdo not open the case and have a look at the label on the psu.
