Preferred Solution: Garbled startup screen, windows logs on but screen stays black.

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.)

Hi I just joined here and Im having a really abd problem with my computer The specs that i know for sure are ECS k SEM motherboard Nvidia GeForce mb of ram DIMM -pin not sure what brand AMD Duron MHZ I booted my comp a few dyas ago and wont startup, black respond. stays on and BSOD's screen out of nowhere I get a BSOD before that screen with Windows XP comes up I say to myself quot ok maybe its just one time quot and reboot I get it yet again and reboot I finally get to the windows log in screen and I get ANOTHER BSOD after it finished loading Restarted again worked fine I analyze my minidumps and it said the most probably cause of these crashes was hardware At this point I recall a computer technician saying the capacitators on my mobo were bursting but this was a good months ago so BSOD's on startup, screen stays black and wont respond. Im not sure if its FINALLY giving out or if my RAM thats failing Well everything goes well and I turn it off I come BSOD's on startup, screen stays black and wont respond. home the next day and I get another set of BSOD s only this time theyve gotten worse Im now getting - BSOD s and my system completely freezes over causing me to reset Wierd thing is when I reset BSOD's on startup, screen stays black and wont respond. without turning the comp off it goes by fine Its when I turn it off and turn it on that I get this BSOD s It seemed to me that the BSOD s and constant hang ups would get worse by day like if something is slowly dying I eventually got tired of them and stop using my computer for a couple days Today I try turning it on and the screen stays on standby like if its not even connected to the VGA Ive decided to purchase a new mobo same as the one I have now but Im not sure if these symptons lead to bad RAM or failing capacitators on the mobo Any help would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:BSOD's on startup, screen stays black and wont respond.

Blue screen error messages are one of the most misunderstood error messages out there in regards to windows.According to Microsoft, only 5-20% of these errors are actually caused by the OS. Only 10% are hardware related. The other 70% are the result of faulty drivers or software incompatibility. Based on those numbers, less than 15% of blue screen errors can be permanently resolved with an OS reinstall.

So we can correctly solve this issue we need to get the minidumps. (if the computer is bootable)

To get the Minidumps do the following

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to %systemroot%\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder.%systemroot% is normally c:\windows. They are numbered by date. You can paste that address in address bar to get there.
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder. Please do NOT compress them in .rar
4 > use the "Managed Attachments" option under "go advanced" upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Typically...black screen with blinking cursor in XP can be resolved by running the fixmbr command from the XP Recovery Console. Since you have an HP system, you may not have the RC.

I've been having this problem for a couple of weeks now. When I turn on my computer it loads up to the black screen with the windows logo and the loading bar with the scroll across green thing. It will just stay on that screen until i turn it off. If i turn it off and turn it on again it will bring me to the screen that allows you to choose safe mode and other options. It will load on safe mode but if i try to turn it on again without safe mode it gets stuck on the screen. So I do a system restore and choose a few days back and the system restores and i can startup my computer just fine. However everytime i shutdown my computer it has the same problem of not getting past that screen. What can i do?? Thanks for your help.

Hey Guys,



I have just installed a new Corsair SSD and for some reason after the windows animation the screen stays black for around 15 seconds and then goes onto the log in section. I am unsure what is causing this but any help would be appreciated. This is a fresh windows install and I have got all of the required drivers. The SSD is going through an Intel SATA 3 socket with ACHI enabled. I have disabled the Marvell adapter and the ASUS boot screen to try and speed things up but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

I know my SSD is working fine as it is blazingly fast once I am in windows. I have the latest BIOS for my motherboard as well.

Sabertooth P67

Hello,

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

Here is my problem:

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

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

Windows boot-up was fine before.

Please help me.
 

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

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

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

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

Do you overclock your video card?

I recommend if you are overclocking any hardware, that you reset these values within the BIOS to their default values in order to increase the stability of your system.

Please run the following tests for your graphics card and RAM:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Graphics Card:Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Read all the steps within the hardware test tutorials very carefully, as stress tests is designed run components to their maximum capacity, in order to point out failing or faulty hardware components.

When Windows 2000 boots up into the network logon screen, the screen appears all black and garbled. The text appears very shrunk and almost impossible to see. It takes several reboots for it to come up correct. The Compaq startup screen before this comes up perfect. Its happens randomly and on any type monitor that is used. Has anyone else seen this?

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

Whenever I shutdown my lappy via the start menu or press the power to do so, vista appears to be shutting down as the open windows close, but then my screen goes black and the power light, wlan, and bluetooth lights remain on. Those indicate the laptop is still running and to completely turn it off I have to hard-shut it by pressing and holding the power button.

A:Screen stays black after screensaver

I would have to agree that deleting your hybernation files is probably the cause. Since they are only needed if you allow your computer to hibernate, there must be another step to shutting it off. It does seem like you checked the right places though. I would assume it would be in your power settings.

You might want to check you BIOS though. If it's disabled there, I'd think you'd be ok.

Monitor stays black

I don't know how to reset the cmos unless you mean to pull the battery. I don't know about the BIOS bus for the video (I can't see any BIOS) settings. I removed the original AGP video card that I thought might be a problem and I put an older working video card (Trident) in another PCI slot and this made no difference. I pulled the RAM chips to clean the connections and reset all cables. I disconnected the CD drive, the floppy drive, and later the hard drive after checking each situation indiviudally, but this made no difference.

Another problem (may be related) is the on-off switch does not control anything. I have to use the toggle switch in the back. I checked the wire connection from the switch to the motherboard (Intel D845BG) and it looked OK.
Thanks

A:All fans come on, but screen stays black.

HDD seems to be active, and the drive reads the disk. I tried clearing the CMOS, no luck. Sorry, RMA?

Also, I have a 20 to 24 pin extention on my PSU, would that effect it?

"It just blinks 3 times (1 long and 2 short)"You'll need to post more information than that if you want advice on what to do.What blinks? The screen? One of the lights?Do you mean it blinks or it makes beep noises?Make & model?

Ok so about a month back my lcd just stopped working. It has a lit background but it stays black. I called hp and they had me do some troubleshooting but it didn't work and they said my display was no good anymore so we left it there (I didnt want to pay all that money to fix it). About 3 days after that it magically worked again but one day it seemed like it was trying to go out again the picture got real grainy for a second then it went back to normal. Now I'm back where I started. I've tried everything, when I hook up an external monitor it works so it has so be lcd related. Any help/advice??

I've had this before but can't remember what I did to stop it
It Is exactly like you pull the dvi/hdmi lead out of monitor/gpu everything still working i.e. if playing video on youtube it carries on playing just no picture.
I think it was something to do with Intel's built in gpu, but I have disabled it everywhere I can think of bios, device manager etc.
Can anyone through some light on this please as it's startingto annoy me now

My rig specs in sig.

A:Random black screen, rig stays on !!

When does this occur? At random? Only when videos/games are playing? Also, what is the exact behavior? Is the monitor giving off behavior as if it has lost its video source, like an error saying the source was lost or it is switching through different connections to find one? Can you tell if your system is locked up, or if it's still accepting your input? The best way to determine thsi is to have the display lost when playing a video, then pressing a key to stop/start playback.

If the monitor is acting like it's not connected to the PC, then it can be a bad video port on your card, a bad/loose video cable, or the monitor itself has a bad port or is just plain bad. You will want to start with potential physical suspects before dabbling with software. Have you tried actually running the video through your onboard video (make sure to enable it and stuff of course) instead of your graphics card and see if that worked?

I got a new graphics card today (GTS 450) and I slotted it in, when I start it up the screen stays black, however, if I leave it for 20 seconds or so I can hear the windows start up sound.. I know my screen isnt gone because I've connected it to my laptop and it works fine. I have the Blue and White cable plugged in my monitor and my computer and still nothing, thanks.

A:Computer screen stays black

Do you get any signs of "life" (like the BIOS Info screen etc)
If so it's probably a driver issue (did you remove the old drivers before the switch) ?

If not, there are IMHO only 5 possibilities:
#1 The card wasn't seated properly -- reseat it
#2 The card draws more power than your PSU can handle -- get a better PSU
#3 you forgot to connect the extra power cable --connect it
#4 you bend one or more pins in the video cable -- replace
#5 The card is defective -- RMA

Hi guys

Has anyone got any suggestions to a laptop which boots normal with LEDs on and fan and hard drive starting up but the screen remains black with no light at all...

I am told that it could be the onboard graphics which is gone meaning the motherboard needs replacing.
Can anyone confirm that at all?
Unfortunately it is an out of warranty laptop.

Many thanks

this is an Acer Aspire lpatop with Win XP Pro
 

A:Laptop boots but screen stays black

Shine a strong light on the screen when the computer completes its boot up. If you can faintly see the desktop and icons. You may have a bad backlight lamp in the LCD panel or a bad DC-AC inverter that drives the lamp. Both can be replaced. Replacing the lamp inside the LCD panel can be a delicate operation if you attempt it yourself. The DC-AC inverter board is a separate assembly that can be readily replaced.

Hello anyone who can help!

I have a Lenovo Laptop Thinkpad Edge E520 8GB RAM, Intel CPU B960 Pentium Processor 2.2GHZ

Recently when I have powered up my laptop it occasionally doesn't load properly, the screen stays black. You can hear the laptop working fine but you cannot see anything.

This happens once or twice a week, I usually hold on the power button for 5 seconds, then reboot and it resumes my hibernate settings as usual

Could this be because I always hibernate my laptop?

Can someone please explain what might be causing this problem and how I go about fixing it?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Laptop powers on but screen stays black?

Thats a fairly new laptop as i have the edge 530.ive never put any of my computers on hibernate so im not sure if that why its doing that. it sounds like either a power supply problem, a screen problem, or a harddrive problem.or rarely the motherboard.you might want to take it somewhere and have it checked out then you will know for sure and go from there.if you have an external monitor you can try and see if anything shows up on it. if so or even if the other monitor is black i would still start with the screen first as the problem.

My laptop has been doing this for a while, whenever I go to shut down my laptop from start menu the screen goes black but the fans stay on and the keyboard lights still glow (I have an Alienware with the glowing keyboard). Only when I hold down the manual switch does it shut down all the way.

This presents a bigger problem recently because when I install updates and then restart my computer, I must shut it down manually and on startup I must open in safe mode and then restore my computer to a point before I installed windows updates. (I am not completely sure that the fact I have to turn off the computer manually is the reason that my computer is telling me to restore to a point before I install updates, just to be clear.)

Thanks for the help.

A:Upon shutdown, only laptop screen goes black but stays on

Is this the original factory preinstall which most tech enthusiasts won't run, preferring to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to enjoy native Win7 performance?

Stick with the tools and methods given and you'll get and keep a perfect install.

In your case I'd first Run Built-In Diagnostics for Your Dell Computer | Dell US from it's partition to see if it will boot and run, give you a report on your hardware. If so then during the booted reinstall you'd want to leave the OEM Diagnostics partition but delete all others using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create and Format New.

Otherwise work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with a Clean Boot, checking logs for repeat errors to resolve, utilitze System Resources to find solutions and Generate a System Health Report.

The PSU was probably bad, replacing it should have fixed it. There may be bad caps on the motherboard or something is grounding on the MOBO to the case and causing it to not boot. Take everything apart. Take Heat Sync off of processor and apply Thermal Paste. Take MOBO out of case and check to see if there are any burn marks, bad caps, or if there are any risers missing off the case keeping the MOBO from touching the case.

A:Labtop not coming on screen stays black

First of all, its a LAPtop, not a LABtop, and secondly, I believe the problem could be the motherboard, although Im not sure because many things can cause something like this. Try some different memory in it, that would be the easiest option and if that doesnt work, it is most likely the video card. And the video card is very difficult to replace on laptops.

It did but screen was black and i could hear no sound of functionality. Searched the web for a solution and i powered laptop off, removed power cord,battery,rams and hdd. Then kept pressing the ON button for greater than 30 seconds. Reconnected everything and laptop booted windows normally. Last night it happened again and this time the same procedure doesn't seem to fix the situation. This whole things looks very bizzare, never heard of anything similar, i hope you can help!

On my pentium 4 PC running windows XP Home, very occassionally on boot up, the monitor remains black. If I restart the computer using re-set or by holding the on/off button and then shutting down and then re starting, it boots up fine and the monitor displays clearly. This happens about once every few weeks. Is it nothing or an indication of a problem somewhere. Otherwise the system runs fast and trouble free and is watched over by Norton anti virus, Spywareblaster, Ad-Aware and Spybot. I run disc cleanup and defrag regularly. I am a little suspicious of the video card, but really not sure at all.

Hi Guys,

Im having some problem with my Packard Bell EasyNote TJ61 - I powered it on and the fans whirred like normal and the lights on the keyboard came on like normal - the power button lit up. But the screen stayed black. Then the fans went silent after 5 seconds and it sounded like it was switched off but all the lights were still on - the power, hard drive and keyboard ones. I noticed if I run my finger over the touch pad buttons for volume etc they light up so im not sure whats wrong.

I replaced the screen on the laptop the other day and it was working fine until last night and this has happened. Any suggestions?

I've tried replacing ram / replacing hard drive / pulling the cmos battery for 30mins / unplugging and trying the 30 seconds power button trick but nothing.

If you have a PC monitor connect it to the laptop and see if you get a display on it.

Also check the laptop screen for a dim image, shining a light onto it may make it more visible.

What was wrong that made you replace the screen ?

I have Windows 7 on my laptop and after I start it up and enter my password to login to windows I have to wait another 10-15 minutes for my desktop to appear. It's just a black screen, but the kicker is that I can move my mouse and see it on screen. I've never heard of or seen anything like this before.

Anyone know what's causing this or how to fix it?

A:Laptop stays at Black screen for 10+ mins after logging in

How old is the laptop? Is it still under warranty? What you are describing sounds like the LCD is going bad.

Our C720 is just over a year old, when we open the lid th escreen stays black, there appears no noise from the fan either.  There is a blue light on the front and another blue light if we put the charger in. Tried the reset by pressing the power button down but nothing still. This appears to be a problem with Chromebooks? Can anyone help?

A:C720 screen stays black, blue light on but no fan

The blue light is saying the battery is fully charged, so we know at least that portion of the hardware is working. Have you tried the 'press the power button for 30 seconds' thing? This should do a forced power down, just in case it's actually sleeping after biting into Snow White's apple.  If that doesn't help you might have a hardware issue with the power button itself. We can test that by trying to boot into developer mode (the same place you would use to reset the OS). Press and hold the ESC key and the Refresh key then while holding them press the power button. If that shows you something on the screen let us know and we'll look at what else to do. You might also be looking at a hardware issue with the screen. If the screen isn't working you could still boot, just with a black screen. If that's the case you should have the blue light go to amber after a bit as the battery starts to discharge. If the light stays blue with the power disconnected then the system itself isn't starting...

My dad has an E-machines desktop with Windows XP SP2... he mentioned he'd updated it with service pack 3. This morning I installed a game, but it said files were corrupted and to re-install. It wouldn't uninstall, so I rebooted.
It brought up the black screen with 5 options -- Safe Mode, Safe Mode w/ Networking, etc.

"Safe Mode" starts, but stops at windows/system32/drivers/agpCPQ.sys and freezes forever.

Last Good Configuration Settings/Start Windows normally leads back to the black screen.
... with a quick flash of what appears to be the blue screen of death?
I saw on a few posts, it may be a BIOS problem? I'm unable to download anything straight to the computer, obviously, and it was suggested the hard-drive may be "kaput."
Thanks in advance for,
Jordan

A:Black Screen Stays/safe Mode Not Loading

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

Hi all, My laptop model no is HP Pavillion. My OS is Windows 8 64 bit. So today I shut my laptop down forcibly pressing the power button as it was not responding for that time. So the next time I switched it on this erroneous problem started. Everytime I switched it on the HP logo comes and then the Windows logo also comes. But then the screen stays black and only the mouse cursor is seen. So what can be the cause of this problem?  Note- I already tried the discharging method after taking off the battery and holding down the power button. It could not help. All LED's are working fine. I have no extra monitor, so I cannot check the display elsewhere.

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook and leave it like this for 10 seconds. Tap away at f11 as soon as you press the power button until you see a 'Windows is loading' message. On the next screen, select your Keyboard Layout and on the following screen, select Troubleshoot. Select 'Advanced Options' and then select System Restore. Click on your Operating System and then wait until the System Restore window opens. Pick a restore point at least 24 hours before the issue first occurred and then proceed with the system restore. Regards, DP-K

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.

These new viruses are truly evil... and wide spread. We have had over 30 cases since Wednesday... all doing what you describe.

But the Toshiba is also infamous for having the screen inverter go bad... cheap to replace but darn difficult to get at quickly.

Can you connect an external monitor to the VGA port on the back of the Toshiba to see what you get there?

Hello.

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

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

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

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks very much for your help.

It's a nasty error that requires some persistance and resourcefullness to overcome without a clean install.

If you have a Windows CD or have the recovery console installed, you might want to have a go at these directions.

Hi Helix935 and welcome to Tenforums.

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

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

You will need to reinstall your personal applications after the OS is working again though.

I'm using I have a DELL4500S desktop, on startup it will not go to the login screen, the screen is just black with the cursor showing. I've tried restarting the computer, unplugging everything and restarting it. Nothing is working. When it first starts a pop up shows and says

"This Application has failed to start because SAMLIB.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

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

SAMLIB.dll is a security account manager dynamic linked lib. A repair install from the dvd should fix the problem unless you are infected with malware, or have a modified system

When I start my windows 7 laptop, I get a black screen. It doesn't bring up the windows logo, errors, or options such as the boot menu. My Computer was working perfectly fine a few hours ago, but then my computer updated windows 7. After the update, my computer was still working. I noticed some lag, so i opened task manager and killed a few processes that i felt were unneeded.. (Maybe they were essential?) Then when i restarted my computer, this problem occured.

Please Help!

Yesterday, I updated my windows 8.1, the process went well until the computer restarted but just after the windows logo disappeared from the screen, nothing happened and just the mouse pointer is visible on the screen.

One other thing
 
I've just tried "startup repair" using windows installation DVD, but it seems that the startup process goes well, because in the log file (srtTrail.txt) it is mentionned that the startup process is ok.
 
I tried to "refresh my computer" but it asks me to agree with deleting all apps installed from disks, thing that i don't want for now.
 
I hope thess informations can help

Good morning,
always it happens that on the startup of windows 8.1 (and also when it was installed windows 8 before the windows 8.1 upgrade) after the republic of gamers logo and before the appearance of the lock screen, the monitor remains completely black for 5 minutes about (after that appears the lock screen and windows works again well). Usually Windows starts itself in 10 seconds about. During the black screen commands don't works. Can be the use of cc cleaner, that cleaning temporary files, creates this problem? I tried to reinstall the last version of the Nvidia display drivers but nothing changed. I took away all those unuseful programs from the windows startup. What can I do? Thanks and I'm sorry for my bad English.

A:Black screen on windows 8.1 startup

Hi, Welcome to Eight forums.

Issue could be mixed set of graphic card drivers. Your PC might be downloading the vendor's drivers and hardware drivers together. Also, windows makes a backup copy of the drivers and puts them into its driver store for you and keeps putting it back on your system if the driver is deleted. You need to go into control panel, disable the autoinstall of device drivers, uninstall the video driver, reboot, and install with the vendors setup program and reboot. Then enter control panel and re-enable the autoinstall of the drivers again.

Have you changed/ added any hardware/software lately just before the problem started?

Do a System Restore to an earlier point.

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

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

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

I'm running windows xp professional. I boot up my computer and it shows the windows loading page and then when the desktop should appear, instead the screen goes black and my monitor reads "no PC signal", as if the PC is not connected to the monitor. But that cannot be the case because it showed the windows loading screen on the monitor.
This problem keeps occuring now. It was working perfectly fine up to today. I booted the computer up in safe mode which worked fine, and re-installed the latest nvidia geforce 7300 se graphics card driver. I then rebooted in normal mode and the problem still occured where the screen is black and says "no PC signal." I don't know what to do now, i tried a new vga cable already, but that didn't fix it.
anybody else run into this problem and solve it?

I am having Windows 7 x64 go to a black screen without a cursor on boot after the Windows splash screen appears. The problem is intermittent and started happening after a Windows automatic update. I can boot into safe mode and after a number of times pressing the restart or power button Windows finally comes up with no black screen.

Things I have tried:
1) Memory check - all good
2) chkdsk - all disks, no problems
3) Windows System Repair - got error code = 0x490, don't know what to do with that
4) Waited for hours for something to happen while black screen up - nothing ever did
5) Checked for outdated drivers - all up to date

At wits end with this problem. Please help.
