Intermittent blank screen

Q: Intermittent blank screen

I am having an intermittent issue with my screen not waking up. It goes to sleep after 10 minutes normally but just occasionally it doesn't come back on. usually I have to reboot the pc. I tried a different monitor which worked fine, when I reconnected my normal monitor it also worked fine. The monitor power light flashes to indicate its in sleep mode but doesn't want to wake despite moving mouse or pressing keyboard. The graphics card is only a couple of months old and the screen is over 5 years old.
This problem only happens maybe once a month, the rest of the time it works as normal. Any suggestions gratefully received.

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.)

First, are you doing anything specific when this occurs, I.e. a particular game, video rendering, etc.? Second, is there dust build-up in your system? Check especially your video card fan.

Hello, I just bought an HP Envy x360 laptop. I used it for a day and it was fine. I started experiencing problems after the first day. My problem is that the screen goes black randomly, not shut off but black (the backlight is still on). Also when i connect it to a seperate monitor via HDMI and the screen goes black on the laptop, the screen on the seperate monitor goes blue. It also seems that the screen does not black out when the computer is plugged in, however i have not done much testing of this.

After startup, moving the angle of the screen makes the picture flicker and it eventually goes grey then black. I have tried the HP support assistant which recommended going to the bios and loading setup defaults, this made no difference. It seems to be a hardware fault. (possibly intermittent connection). How do i fix this ?

I have an Acer laptop with an intermittent screen. The screen will start to streak and then fade to white. If I tap on it, it will come back. If I twist the top of the case slightly, it will come back. Am I correct in assuming this is a loose connection and if I disassemble the screen, should be able to fix the problem? Or is this an indication the screen must be replaced?

A:laptop screen intermittent

If you're real lucky, that may be the case. More likely, however, it's the screen itself that's going bad.

I have two computers connected to the same monitor and keyboard and seem to be having a problem. One of the computers causes the screen to flicker intermittently. The flicker is becoming more frequent. I don't know what type of information is needed to help with the problem but here is some info.

The motherboard is a Soyo KT 333 platinum edition.
ATI Radeon 7000 64 meg DDR (graphics).
AMD Athlon 1900+.

I have checked and believe I have the most current drivers.
If a new graphics/video card is suggested would someone suggest a moderate priced version to go with this setup.

Thank you, in advance, for any help you may lend.

A:Intermittent Shutdowns due to Blue Screen?

Greetings utopian.aura and Welcome to the Forums,The problem in part, relates to your usage of the file sharing program "?Torrent". Uninstalling it will result in a quicker resolution to your issue. Next, the disk is packed too tight...that is to say, for the size of that hard disk, there should be 137 gigs of free space minimum in order to run a system defrag but you have less than 65 gigs of free space. You need to give Windows more breathing room.You should uninstall/delete/remove files you KNOW with certainty that you don't use or need...let me know if you need help with this. Also, if you have any music or video files it can quickly add up to wasted disk usage. These can surely be removed and stored on some DVD or CD.Next, let's make a system settings change which will allow you to be able to see the blue stop screen the next time the system crashes:From the control panel, click on "System->Advanced System Settings". In the Properties box, click the "Advanced" tab, then under "Startup and Recovery", click the Settings button. Remove the check from "Automaticallly restart". Click "OK" and apply the settings to close the properties box. With this system settings change, the system will stop with the blue screen instead of rebooting right away. In this way, you have the opportunity to write down exactly what text appears on the blue screen upon a system crash. We need that information, specifically the driver detail that may appear at the bottom of that screen. Post that information back here so we can determine how best to proceed. Thanks!

Hello all I m running Windows XP Pro My video card is a mb ATI All-In-Wonder Catalyst is installed I have gb of memory I apologize for the long Intermittent problem resolution screen post Also sorry if this is the wrong forum for this post I m not sure if it belongs here or the hardware forum Recently I upgraded my cheap-as-dirt Intermittent screen resolution problem CRT moniter for a nice LCD The second I plugged it in x was dead to me and I immediately and happily switched to x However there was a slight problem I have my video card s TV Out jack hooked up to my TV for the purpose of watching video files on it and since x is the max for TVs fullscreening my video caused the picture to be cropped Thankfully I found a lovely setting in the options screen quot Change resolution to x when fullscreened quot That worked great Switching between fullscreen and not took a little longer due to it changing resolutions but for the most part life was good Until a very short while later when something quite strange started happening The resolution wouldn t change I d click fullscreen and it would try to change the resolution what with the screen blacking out for a second and all but when the display is restored it s still in x and my video is still cropped So I go to Windows display settings and try to change the resolution myself But when I hit OK it tries again fails and tells me Windows needs to be restarted before the change can take effect I consider myself a power user my computer s on and I usually have a lot of things up I can t just restart every time I want to watch a video However restarting does appear to fix the problem at least temporarily After my computer s been running for a while the problem comes back again Sometimes if I try a few times it succeeds eventually but usually if it doesn t get it the first time it doesn t matter how many times I try Curiously the problem appears to fix itself over time sometimes Like it ll be busted one time I ll say eh screw it and come back an hour later and then it ll be fine Very freaky but very very annoying I plop down on my couch with some food ready to watch the next episode of my favorite anime and the resolution fails It s driving me nuts Previous to getting the new moniter I d been having some DirectX related problems that had the same intermittent attributes as this problem so I ve got a feeling this isn t a new thing It s just now that I actually have to change resolutions all the time that I m noticing it So what could this be My initial thought is that my video card is going bad It is rather crappy and I ve been meaning to get a new one anyway However if it where the hardware why would rebooting fix it for a while Is it a hardware problem or a Windows problem Help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Intermittent screen resolution problem

A minor, irrelevant point, but I assume you mean 1024x768. On my ATI system these options are available from a left click of the ATI icon in the system tray.

I'm wondering if it is having a problem making the switch at the currently set refresh rate.

LCD monitors are more limited in the refresh rates they can use with given resolutions. Typically the higher the resolution, the lower the refresh rate supported. So it seems puzzling that it cannot downshift from 1280 to 1024. By the way, I have an LCD monitor and I have no problem going either way without having to restart. Of course, you get this complaint from many that the lower setting is not ideal with LCD monitors, but I have no problem with it.

Assuming the monitor's drivers have been installed and the monitor is then recognized by model number -- select the monitor tab in advanced display properties and make sure "display only refresh rates that this monitor can support" is checked. Look to see if the same list is available for both screen areas. If choosing to troubleshoot -- select 60 hz as the default, but you can try other supported rates as well and see if it makes a difference.

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.

I'm on Windows 7 and get a blue screen of death with the message irreversible hard drive error.  I ran ccleaner, malware and virus scan and did system restore.  When not being blue screened the computer works fine and no files are lost.  My last blue screen was two days ago when I clicked on FB notifications.  Now my computer works fine.  Should I continue to worry about this or was this a temporary problem that went away when I ran cc cleaner, malware, virus and system restore?

Hi, I have a DELL 8400 desktop that has been intermittently getting the Blue Screen (BSOD) for several months now. The trouble is intermittent so i have just been rebooting to use the computer again. However, I would like to get this fixed now. When it happens, it says that Windows shut down to protect the computer and it does a physical memory dump. Occasionally, when it happens, I also hear a loud spinning noise, but I am not sure if it is the hard drive or a CD drive spinning. No new hardware has been installed recently, but I cannot comment about any new software since it started so long ago. I have not tried restoring to a previous configuration yet, I wanted to get your perspective first. In the next couple of posts, I will post my computer specifics and a BlueScreenView. Thanks in advance for your help, you guys are the best.

Hi All, I just bought an 11" Yoga 710 and have an intermittent problem with the touchscreen coming unresponsive. Its normally ok when I start the machine up, but after a while the screen will come unresponsive so I switch to notebook mode and then most of the time it will come back after a few minutes. I've done a search and tried some of the tricks posted a few years back, turn power management off some of the HID items and disabling them as well. None appear to be a solution.I can provoke the unresponsive ness by opening Facebook in Edge, but it has also happened on other webpages and also when using Spotify.Does anyone have any ideas?

Since yesterday, I've started having this intermittent problem when I turn on my PC -- my screen remains black (no cursor) during the entire boot process. I know that the PC is booting because I hear all of the normal sounds (including the Windows startup chimes). If I reboot, it usually fixes the problem and then I'm fine.

So, I'm not quite sure where to post this problem but I am concerned that I may be "infected" or perhaps being spied on by someone. I'm not sure. Basically, I see a small black box that intermittently pops up on my screen from time to time and then vanishes very quickly (i.e. - a split second). I have tried running MBytes and SuperAntiSpyware but it doesn't fix it. Could it be the screen? I'm at a loss as to what it could be.

AMD Phenom 3.4

If any other information is needed I would be glad to give it. 
Thanks all

Hi, all,
I have had an intermittent problem over the last week or so. Every now and then, a darker grey vertical stripe appears on my screen. Normally, this covers the left quarter of my screen, but sometimes covers the whole left half of the screen. It's almost as if I have reduced the brightness of only this part of the screen compared with the rest.
It has again just appeared without warning. I attach a photo of it below. I'm not sure if it's relevant, but this stripe does not appear in the image if I take a screen grab.
I am based in Liberia and not near a Dell service agent, as far as I am aware, until returning to the UK for Christmas, so having it looked at by a Dell agent is not a practical proposition for the time being.
Any ideas on what causes this and how I can resolve it?

I have an XPS 13 with a touch monitor.  My wife liked it so much I bought her one.  Her sister liked it also and we bought her one.  Occasionally at boot up (1 in 10 times) the touch monitor won't respond to 'touches.'  Pressing any key (or the mouse pad) brings me to the password screen and I 'Restart' the computer and the touch screen function works.  This happens on all three computers.  I've never seen this problem posted but I find it hard to believe we three are the only one's having this issue.

Hi I bought this tablet a few months ago and I had tried using a capacitive stylus as I saw recommended on one of these posts. I had used a friends (I dont recall the name) and I tried a Jot Pro. They both worked perfectly smooth on his Surface Pro 3, but whenever they were used on my screen (even to draw the simplest straight line), it would be extremely intermitent. As in it produced a dashed line. I tried calibrating the touch screen using only the pen, but it wouldnt get recognized. I tried making the screen more sensitive but it too made no difference. I would also like to add that scrolling using the Jot Pro worked almost flawlessly.... which makes it very odd. Does anyone have any suggestions?

WinXP intermittently stops at the Welcome screen just after the music. It happens every other day or two. I have defragged the hard drive and the registry. I have run various registry optimizers. I have monitored the bootlog and have detailed the results here: the possibility that the hard drive is failing, it has been suggested that there could be some malware. I tried running dds but the computer thinks that it is just a web page. I have attached the hijack this log. Thanks,Jeff

Hello !! Welcome to SF !!

I believe F-PROT Antivirus for Windows is causing the System to crash. Use this document and uninstall it completely Uninstalling version 3 of F-PROT Antivirus using an automatic removal tool - F-PROT Antivirus Support Windows and reboot the System once. You could use Microsoft Security Essentials.

By the way i didn't find the Minidump in the folder !!

I've been having an intermittent problem with this laptop recently, and there's an older issue which may or may not be related. Every so often, the screen will go black for a second or so. In some cases the screen I was on will temporarily have parts missing (as though it isn't loaded properly) after this happens. It usually seems to happen quite soon after I start using the laptop. The original issue was that about a month ago my laptop started going into sleep mode randomly while I was using it. I disabled sleep mode entirely as a result of this, and it seemed to superficially fix the problem. However, this other issue with the temporary blackouts started more recently and I have no idea how to go about fixing or preventing it. This is also a fairly new laptop - I've only had it since February. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

This has only started happening recently - every few boots, the screen choice between Windows 10 and XP appears with the wrong resolution. The image is small on the screen. If I select Windows 10, the full boot sequence continues with that resolution. However, if I select 'Advanced options' and then 'Continue to Windows 10', the resolution changes to the correct format.
A week or so back, I went back to a previous set point and that seemed to cure the problem. Then it returned.
Can anyone suggest what is happening?

My machine is running Vista 32 SP2. I've been having a problem recently where Windows won't load properly. It only happens once every few restarts/starts, but I fear it may be a sign of a serious problem.

At the point where Windows begins to load and the loader bar is displayed, the screen goes black. No cursor. No nothing. Windows never loads and a manual restart is the only alternative. Also, when this happens the hard drive light flashes, but in a suspiciously regular pattern.

I've seen references to the BSoD, but they usually refer to the login screen being blacked out. This seems different from those accounts as Windows never loads.

Thank you in advance for your help on this.

When turning on the computer, it mostly has just a blank grey/black screen. The screen image does flash intermittently (although not in any consistent way) and show itself, but does not stay visible to allow using the laptop without a secondary screen connected. With a secondary screen, the computer operates fine, so if you can see what it is doing on another device, the data can be used. It defeats the purpose of laptop though and makes it inconvenient to have to pull the screen from another computer.

My computer has been crashing intermittently for unknown reasons. It gives no error message, and 2 out of 3 times, when it restarts, it goes into the 'repairs windows startup" screen. If I bypass this and re-start windows normally, it starts right back up, to randomly crash again. I have tried buying new ram (which is how I ended up with 8gb), and re-installing Windows 7 (Home premium 64bit) with no improvement. I'm at a loss. i have run nortons Diagnostics, which comes back with no errors. (yes, i run Norton's antivirus). Any help would be appreciated.

A:Inspirion E1405 LCD screen unlit (very dim, no backlight), intermittent

It's most likely a failing backlight bulb.  The replacement is not a trivial job and is best left to an LCD repair specialist - the cost should be about $100.
All notebooks use some type of backlight, and all notebook manufacturers buy displays from the same small pool of vendors - you're no more or less likely to see a failure in a Sony, Toshiba or HP than in a Dell.  If you do buy another brand, do what you should have with the Dell - minimum 3-year warranty on ANY notebook you buy.  They all fail at the same rate - about one in five will have a major component fail within the first three years.

My Windows XP box started having an issue where it would freeze up randomly, then the next day it wouldn't turn on at all. I tested a little farther, and it wouldn't even get to the BIOS POST most of the time. I removed the peripherals and tried again, seemed to give the same problem, but after a couple times it started up.

After it started up, I opened a browser and the screen froze and I noticed some artifacting on the screen. I haven't tried it yet, but I don't think swapping out the graphics card would be the problem as, most of the time, it doesn't even make it to the POST.

Any ideas on where to go next with this issue? I'm thinking something may be loose or shorting.. I'm just not sure what to test next.

Bought said laptop from PCWorld (Leicester, England) on 27 November 2015.
Whilst watching any footage on YouTube, when using right-hand screen slider to scroll page down (and back up), at a given point, screen suffers from an intermittent blackout.
Same issue has occurred whilst using same slider to scroll through Facebook.
Can liken to a human being blinking for a second.

Additionally, whilst trying to place an online order with John Lewis, at the point where I wished to select their Click & Collect delivery option, screen permanently blacked out.

Thanks in advance.

A:A Quick BSOD Now an Intermittent Shutdown During Startup Splash Screen

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

There is a laptop I want to purchase which is described to have an "intermittent graphics fault" where the screen turns green.
I have read that this is definitely a hardware error, some pointing out the video cable as being loose.
I was wondering if you guys are familiar with this problem and what is required to fix it.

Thanks in advance.

fter upgrading to Win 10 Home from 8.1 and even after clean install of Win 10 Home, I get intermittent almost black screen without cursor. Programs running, like browser video continue producing sound without glitch. Ctrl-Alt Del does not work but Fn-F7 turns the LCD backlight off (darker black screen) and pressing again turns it on with video restored. The problem will recur from 2 seconds to a day later. Driver errors in Generic PNP Monitor (present in Safe Mode) and Bluetooth have been corrected by uninstalling and scanning for new hardware, but problem persists. Both sfc and dism completed without changing anything.

Hello Metsturbo99,

Sorry to hear your computer is randomly freezing.

Have you checked to see if a nasty infection of malware is on your computer? This is most probably always the cause.

Honestly, I would avoid any laptop that has that issue because you don't know what is causing it and if you have to replace the screen the cost is often more than what you would pay for a new system.

Can you link us to this laptop or give us more details about this unit?

Occasionally, after pressing the power button, the boot process gets as far as the DELL splash screen and then the power is switched off.

Pressing the power button again and everything works fine. The boot process may take a little longer than normal but that seems to be the only after effect.  Normally from power on to login takes just  few seconds.

A:Black Screen/Blank screen after screen replacement

Not all laptop screens are the same. It is important to get a "replacement" screen, not a "compatible" one.

On the back of the laptop screen is a product sticker (you can only read this before you install the screen). On that sticker is the manufacturer and model #. You can use that number to find exact replacements.

How did you come to choose the LG screen?

Hello,I will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while I assist you.Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us Please do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs, unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability. Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post. Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process. Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.----------------------------------------------Please do the following:Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe on your desktop to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.

Windows Backup was disabled in "Services" for an unknown reason. Also, I was looking for "Backup and Restore" at the top of the list of services instead of Windows Backup at the very bottom of the list. I didn't look in "Linux Backup and Restore", either. Duh. Anyway, good news, easy fix. Done.


"Start > right click "Computer" > select "Manage" > select "Services" > select "Windows Backup" from list and double click it. When the pop up window opens, if the pull down says "This service is disabled" click on the pull down and select Manual. Click "Apply". "OK". Done.

Now, just go to backup and restore in the Maintenance folder on the start menu program list, click it and Backup menu is there ready to go.

After the Starting Windows screen a blank black screen with a cursor that I can move pops up that lasts a minute (shouldn't happen with SSD, used to be ~10 second boot). Afterwards the login screen will appear as normal and everything works as normal. This doesn't happen when I boot into safe mode.

I attached a list of start up services, installs, and scheduled tasks, along with my latest boot log.

Any suggestions?

A:Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank)

I never had a problem upgrading like you've experienced but I experiencing Windows 10 upgrading process is the longest time taken ever compared to previous versions. It took me 1 hour+ to finished.

Play around a little bit to get used to it then did a clean install. No problem arise, seems working fine.

The point is, problems always happen after upgrading, to solve it just perform installation from scratch (clean install).

A:Windows 8 fails to boot after most recent update. Intermittent flashing screen.

If your problem seems to be specific to one update, what update is it? We can see if any "known-issues" are published.

Till then, visit Windows Update manually, and select Check for Updates. Then, from the list of updates, right-click the one that is producing the problem, and select "Hide update". Then exit Windows update.

You can always later try that update, after enough time has gone by and Microsoft might have released an updated version that will fix its bad side-effects. [you'll use the "restore hidden updates" option to see that update in the list agaiin].

Best of luck

Ever since I switched my operating system from XP to Vista Home Basic on my Compaq Presario V6000 notebook, my machine has been plagued with intermittent screen flickering. It does not go black, and it doesn't seem to matter what application I'm using at the time. Awhile back, I found some information online about disabling a service related to use of an external monitor, and I tried that, but to no avail.
Suspecting that the problem was related to Vista (and hoping it wasn't my hardware), I installed Ubuntu Linux as a dual boot, and sure enough, I experience no flickering in Linux.
Any ideas or suggestions on how I can further troubleshoot or fix this problem?

BTW, I maintain updated AVG free antivirus software and Comodo firewall. I'm pretty confident that I don't have any viruses.

Hi all,

My computer seems to crash, BSOD and freeze at random times. It seems to always crash after a few minutes of running on a fresh start. I've run Malwarebytes anti-malware scan and MSE Scan which found nothing. I've updated drivers, run Windbg, driver validater, disabled non-windows services, startup applications, bios updates, windows updates, memory check of 5 passes, disk checks, power checks with hwinfo, performance monitor reports and I've still not found any concrete evidence that there is anything wrong except that my computer blue screens for the heck of it.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I'd rather not reinstall, but I can if I have to. I think I may get an SSD before I do though.

Yes, you've got a few malware entries in there (a CoolWebSearch hijack, and a couple of trojans), though it's not going to be easy to remedy without seeing the complete HJT log. Can you possibly copy the log to floppy and then post it from the other computer?

What's the Windows OS?
eg. Is it Windows 2000 sp4? Or is it WinXP Pro sp2?

What version of HijackThis is it? v1.99.1 is the latest version.
Is HijackThis.exe running from a permanent folder, and not from within a zip file in a Temp folder?
This is important. Make sure HijackThis.exe is installed in eg.
C:\Program Files\HijackThis
Re: your questions at the end of your post:
Don't worry about WINNT / winnt and System32 / system32
They are both exactly the same (whether smallcase or uppercase or a mixture).
svchost.exe is legitimate and is an integral part of Windows NT/2k/XP (Services Host).
It is normal to have multiple instances of it running.

Anyway, try this for now...
If possible, please download the following apps and transfer them to the infected pc.
CWShredder (free standalone version)
AboutBuster (tutorial)

You will need to unzip to a folder on the good pc,
then open AboutBuster.exe
click the Update button
download the updates
then copy the entire AboutBuster folder over to the infected pc.
Download the attached file.
The zip contains a .bat and a .reg file.
Unzip them and copy the .bat and .reg file over to the infected pc.
Make a copy of them on the desktop and in My Documents.
You could also run them both directly from a floppy.
However, don't run either just yet.
I will tell you what they do and when to use them later in the instructions below.

On the infected pc...

Need help here.

I have a HP laptop DV9543cl with 32bit Vista. Last Thursday (6/3/2010), Vista update icon showed up and asked me to install the update. As always, i did that. Once install was done, it asked for a reboot which i did. It started booting up again and when it finished Windows logo screen, it went blank and no display with all the other lights were in correct status. I waited for a long time before attempting a reboot. Since then i don't see anything on the screen after the initial BIOS screen (Which is also all jumbled up). I tried F8 (BIOS) and F11(Restore) but no screen. Don't know what to do but i am pretty sure that Laptop is working ok just not displaying anything. I am going to try Remote desktop on it now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cant get into my desktop. When i start my pc XP loads, and it starts the last known good configuration. I then seen the xp loading screen.

Next i should be able to see the login screen, however this is a blank black screen, the mouse is visible and i can move it around the screen, but i cant see anything to log into the desktop.

I dont know why this has happened, it was working last night. The only thing i can think of was my brother switched the power off as it was shutting down. The shut down had automatic updates running (i think) at the time the power switches were turned off.

How do i solve this so i can see the login screen and get into my pc?

Hope someone can help, cheers.

I have a Compaq Presario C300. Somehow the screen cracked and of course was not under warranty. I purchased a replacement screen online and followed the directions to replace. It was relatively simple, however, now when I boot up the computer, the backlight comes on for the whole screen, but shows up blank. Did I just not fully connect something? Is there something simple I can check before I bring the whole darn thing in for service anyway? This is what I was trying to avoid in the first place. The whole laptop was only 800 and the new replacement screen was $199 (as opposed to the quote for $450 I got to have it replaced).

Anyone have any ideas I can try?

A:Windows half installs, blank screen after BIOS screen


When the PC reboots after copying files it should then read from the boot device, it may be possible that the BIOS is set incorrectly with the boot device not being set as the bootable drive.

Go into BIOS and ensure that the first bootable device is the HD you are loading windows onto, also remove any devices attached to the bootable drive such as any slave drives and that the jumper is set to master, not slave or cable select, if the CD rom that you are loading windows from is slaved to the master drive then place it on its own IDE channel and rerun the setup from scratch.

The only other time I have seen this happen is when the drive itself is flaky, that was only once though and I had to replace the drive.

Hello everyone. I'm new the the forums here (as in just registered), but I need some help please. Basically after attempting to open firefox today (as I have probably over 20 times a day for the last year at least), I received a blue screen of death, and now my computer seems to be shot. I know how difficult it is to diagnose something without being able to see it, so I made a short little 4 min video of me trying to turn it on and what it does. Hopefully this has happened to at least someone before.

Blue Screen of Death - YouTube

A:[SOLVED] BSOD help. Blank screen after BIOS pop up and blue screen while trying to re


From the video you provided (which is great, by the way)... your system is failing to POST. Essentially if the system detects that a device or component is failing to provide the accurate information, which ensures that it would then be safe to run, the system will not POST.

From the looks of it, your hard drive or memory appears to be the issue which is the issue in most of the cases like this as you're BSOD'ing right after loading the Windows disc and after it loads the files necessary for the install.

My current advice:

1. Clear / reset the CMOS and try booting up and or loading the disc again.

2. If possible using another system, possibly a laptop... etc, download and run Memtest86+ -



Download Memtest86+ here:


Which should I download?

You can either download the pre-compiled ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).

How Memtest works:

Memtest86 writes a series of test patterns to most memory addresses, reads back the data written, and compares it for errors.

The default pass does 9 different tests, varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth test, bit fade, is selectable from the menu. It writes all memory with zeroes, then sleeps for 90 minutes before checking to see if bits have changed (perhaps because of refresh problems). This is repeated with all ones for a total time of 3 hours per pass.

Many chipsets can report RAM speeds and timings via SPD (Serial Presence Detect) or EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), and some even support changing the expected memory speed. If the expected memory speed is overclocked, Memtest86 can test that memory performance is error-free with these faster settings.

Some hardware is able to report the "PAT status" (PAT: enabled or PAT: disabled). This is a reference to Intel Performance acceleration technology; there may be BIOS settings which affect this aspect of memory timing.

This information, if available to the program, can be displayed via a menu option.

Any other questions, they can most likely be answered by reading this great guide here:

3. Connect the hard drive to another system and run chkdsk on it, connect it back after and try again.

4. Contact iBuyPower and let them know your system suddenly out of the blue is experiencing hardware failure and will not POST.

It may be caused by bad RAM. Download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature and burn it to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature, or burn to USB flash drive with Rufus, in my signature or use their burning tool on their web site. Remove all but one stick of RAM. Boot off of the newly created media and do the tests on each stick of RAM separately for at least 7 passes. If you get any errors, red in the bottom half of the window, that stick is bad and needs to be replaced.
You can also remove the HDD and attach it internally to a desktop computer, or via a USB Adapter or put it into a USB dock or enclosure to backup the files and run Diagnostic tests on the HDD.

Doubt this will help but have you tried seeing if you can start in safe mode?

Reboot and hit F8 as it tries to start up. Think it is F8 in 2000

I would clone the drive, then do a clean install.

I'm getting a blank screen when my computer boots up. Not even a Bios screen or anything. But, Win 7 seems to boot up fine in the background. I can hear the welcome chime in the background after a little bit.
I was in the process of putting in a new SSD when this happened. Tried to unplug it and restart, but same problem. Now I have everything else unplugged but the graphics card, and the old hdds. Still nothing but blank screen.
I'm wondering if it's the graphics card or the power supply that are spotty. Fan is spinning on the graphics card, but I'm not sure what to make of that by itself.
Not quite sure what to do now....

You might have the splash turned off in the bios. Have you checked the settings in there. When the computer boots start hitting the button to get you into the bios seeing as you can't see it.

I have a refurbished, out-of-warranty Gateway Profile 5 desktop. The screen is totally blank. I contacted Gateway. They are pretty confident the built-in display is defective. I was able to attach a second display which would also go blank just after the Windows XP Pro splash screen appeared. Using the 2nd display, I was able to access the bios. When I looked at the display setup, it was set to LCD & CRT. Not thinking, I changed the setting to LCD since I wasn't using a CRT. That disconnected my 2nd display, so I now have two totally blank screens. How can I re-access the 2nd display and then also avoid a blank screen when Windows XP boots up?

There are at least 45 to 50 updates available for Win7. Please update Windows from Windows Update and see if that fixes your issues.

Once that's done, please resubmit the reports and we'll see what we can extract from them then.
