Computer boots to black screen after Windows splash screen

Q: Computer boots to black screen after Windows splash screen

Last night I downloaded a to boots screen splash Computer Windows black screen after file from a Torrent site - Blackberry stuff I'm pretty sure most or Computer boots to black screen after Windows splash screen all was freeware stuff I just noticed that that file has been removed Kinda unfortunately because I did leave a comment on what happened to me and I asked if anyone else had the same issue I'm guessing maybe they did because it is gone now I ran my AVG scan on it before opening it It didn't find anything so I ran the executable It locked up at one point after I started getting virus warnings from some new program I did not write down what any of it was - I had to do a hard shutdown When it came up to my choices window i e choose Safe Mode Last Know etc I was unable to make any selections with my keyboard so it continued to boot Windows normally The XP splash screen comes on and then the screen turns black with nothing further happening I can do a hard reboot but I can't get into Safe Mode because the keyboard isn't working and normal windows isn't working either Got any suggestions Do I have some serious funk Did some piece of hardware decide to stop functioning properly power supply I have been Googling this issue without any success Sometimes it feels like you are the only one to ever have a particular issue This happened very late last night and now I am at work so I'm not able to touch it for the next hours or so The only two things that I can do right now is go into the BIOS settings or watch it go into Windows and then get the black screen I have not tried booting with any CDs or floppy disks yet I need a solution please Has anyone else experienced this exact same issue

Preferred Solution: Computer boots to black screen after Windows splash screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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

A:XP boots into black screen w/ mouse after splash logo

Well...I would run the chkdsk /r command for the troubled install, from the second install. I would also run SUPERAntiSpyware on that partition, along with Malwarebytes. There is no one program that does it all.IMO, it's always good to verify that the file system/hard drive have no known problems...before doing anthing more serious.<<It is very important I get into the corrupted OS for personal files>>Assuming that you don't have more serious problems...you can always move data files from the 1st install to the 2d install...to minimize any risk of data loss during analysis/testing.To move files which are in the Docs & Settings group, you will probably have to take ownership of the files.How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 Louis

A:Windows 7-64 bit Computer Boots to Black Screen

Just a question.  Does the black screen with just the mouse pointer appear after you have logged in (I am assuming you at least have one user with a password set up on the machine)???
 
If it does something that I have done in the past when this has happened to me is do a Ctrl-Alt-Del and select the Start the Task Manager option.  This will allow you to at least see the processes and services that are running.  This has helped me find where the problem(s) might be (that is if you are familiar with what processes and services are supposed to be running)

I am not sure what's wrong, but I have uninstall nvidia drivers that gave me problems ie. 257.21, 196.21....etc. I am currently using 195.62. I am certain that it was a VGA driver problem, because it never happened again, till I decided to remove windows internet explorer and it did the black screen thing again. It restarts and instead of showing windows splash screen it shows a black screen. When I am at the black screen I can't do anything, I will have manually restart and when it boots up the second time it will load windows. It's ____ me off. I hope someone can help me here, and I appreciate it. Atm I am gonna reinstall IE 8 and let's hope for the best.

PS. I just bought this new HDD WDVELOCIRAPTOR 300GB. So it's brand new. Don't know what's going on.

A:Restart leads to black screen before windows 7 splash screen

Hmmm! Been having the same problem myself with 7 ultimate 64 bit. It only happens on a "restart". Cold boot works OK.
I just hit my reset button, get message to do startup repair or start windows normally.
Select the "normal" and all seems to work OK???????
I'd be interested if you can find a resolution to this issue. I gave up on it!!!

A:windows splash to black screen now blue screen

I would think that your first priority, assuming that your data is safe, is to obtain a means of reinstalling/repairing XP. I mean, that would be my first priority if I intended to run a system with XP on it and I did not believe that the system would run perfectly until I decided to retire/sell/junk it.

So my first suggestion would have been...contact Dell and inquire about recovery/restore CDs for your system.

As for your apparent option of taking it to a shop...that won't resolve the fact that you have no install disks of any type.

I've not ever seen an XP sticker that doesn't indicate which flavor of the O/S is installed.

The solutions for malware problems...are seldom generic, since each situation involves a different system, different circumstances, etc.

So...my advice is never to try to use someone else's malware situation...which has been defined and treated by those with expertise...to self-resolve your own situation.

I would suggest that you start in the Am I Infected forum...I'll move this topic there.

Hi everyone:

This is my first time here so im not 100% sure if this is where I am supposed to post this.

I am running windows XP Pro and the problem is that I have deep freeze installed on my computer, so I un-thawed it and then installed skype and then froze it again.

Once I was done with Skype I un-thawed deep freeze again and uninstalled Skype and then restarted the computer. Thats when the problem started all I get now is the windows XP splash screen and then the screen goes blank. I tried going into safe mode to un-thaw deep freeze again but it doesn't appear in the bottom bar.

Any help is greatly appresheated.

Thanks,
:) Azirus

A:Black Screen after seeing Windows splash screen.

Hello everyone its me again. Just wanted to give an update on the problem.

It appears that it is deep freeze that is causing this problem on the computer, because when I boot into thawed mode or uninstall deep freeze the computer is able to boot normal (I was able to log in by pressing F8 and then selecting Directory Services Restore Mode, incase someone else has this problem) and once I logged in I was able to open deep freeze and uninstall it.

Unfortunately I need deep freeze installed on this computer because its at a public library (Deep freeze pretty much solves all problems of public downloading viruses etc...) I also have deep freeze installed on 6 other computers running windows XP Pro and they arn't having any problems at all.

If anyone else has had this problem or knows what may be wrong please let me know. I have tried uninstalling deep freeze and reinstalling it as well, but the same problem happens.

Thanks,
:) Azirus

A:Black screen after windows xp splash screen

Hi, I have seen this quite a few times, and yes pain in the butt i know :) Alot of software will not install in safe mode, although seeing as you can get into safe mode, will it allow you to uninstall the video driver from there? If you can, then reboot into regular mode, the system should come up (heres hoping).. then reinstall the vid driver. I have found this to work most times. Worst case scenario.. if that dosn't help. . .go back into safe mode again, uninstall all motherboard drivers, reboot back into normal mode, and again, reinstall drivers. The problem you are having is normally a software issue, generally one of the two suggestions here I find to work. If you have activated and the system is asking for reactivation, that could be due to malware or viruses, or significant hardware changes to your system

I turned on my computer today as usual and I've restarted it numerous amount of times and I can't get past the ASUS bios splash.

I'm thinking the problem is my hard drive, the activity light stops flashing after the bios screen and it just completely goes black and hangs. I've tried system restoring from the windows CD but that didn't work. I don't understand how I can see the hard drive in the bios and I can choose restore points on the drive but it simply won't boot.

What can I do? I don't want to format it and re-install everything again as it takes forever to get everything back. Can I create a new partition to install windows on as I have plenty of space left?

Help?

I have an A7v400 MX I was surfing on and it started to shutdown automatically. I changed the power supply and it does not shutdown anymore but when I try to boot the computer up it passes the boot up screen and will not load Windows XP. I cannot go to the bios setup either. I will have the option to load windows in safe mode or safe mode with networking or load windows at its last working settings;However, it will just stay black and then my monitor will automatically go into sleep mode. Any information to help resolve is greatly appreciated.

Last night my wife was on the computer and a message appeared. It sayed hard drive is almost full and windows XP was shutting down. Since then everytime I reboot the computer I get nothing but a black screen. I clicked Ctrl Alt Delete and tried booting in Safe Mode and still a black screen. I tried the Last Known Good Configuration, Debugging Mode still black screen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My best guess is that I need to delete some files, but i cant get in to do that.

Thanks
 

A:Computer boots to black screen?

Do you have any friends who have some tech knowledge/experience?

If her harddrive is as full as you say it is that is going to cause issues as you are experiencing. Suggest for the future you invest in an external harddrive to store items you want to save. And it seems you will need to delete a lot of files, etc. to free up space. basically Windows can't work.

Can you still boot into Safe mode.

I suspect either a driver or new start up program.

My wife's computer locked up on her and we had to reboot it, now it boots up to loading windows, then gives me a black screen with the mouse pointer, the mouse will move, so system is not locked back up.

I booted into safe mode and it takes me to the log in screen which allows me to choose administrator or guest, doesn't matter which one I pick, it loads up and gives me the safe mode around the screen, but stays black. I can ctrl-alt del and it brings up the task manager screen, but everything else stays black.

Could it be the video card?

Any ideas?

Thank you

A:[SOLVED] Computer boots to black screen

No, it would not be the video card as you can see the login and other stuff. My guess is a bad system file

so one day (9 weeks ago) my computer crashed on boot up for no reason( right before you get to the log in screen ) then it restarted and I got a black screen, so I turned it off to restart. So since then I may get 1 of 5 things: a black screen, a black screen with mouse pointer, its starts up but the desktop icons don't work including taskbar, task manager and my computer, its crash(occasionally) or its just starts up normally. I think it's the expolrer.exe because one time when it started up to the black screen with mouse I was able to pull up the task manager and then I run explorer.exe and the desktop appeared, so it worked that one time.

A:sometimes when my computer boots I get a black screen with mouse

Hi Bikeboy and "Welcome to the Seven Forums.". . .

Now to your problem: Attempt a "Startup" in "Safe Mode" (Push F8 to go to Safe Mode). Once in Safe Mode go to "Recovery" and once in Recovery choice a time (Date) before the problem started for Recovery to see if that fixes the problem. . .Good Luck.

A:Black screen with moveable cursor after splash screen

Welcome to TSG, Kiwichick. You stated....

Fan has been cleaned and power supply checked, no change.Click to expand...

It's very possible that in cleaning the machine something may have become loose. (It happened to me before,
a sata cable wasn't completely connected.) Check all of the connections at both ends. Any cables or straps
need to be tightly seated to the HDD as well as the connection to the mobo.

Before you open the case, disconnect all peripherals and press the power supply button in for approx. 30 seconds
to drain the remaining flea power. It sounds like a loose cable to the drive.

A:Black Screen Hang (after splash screen appears)

What happens when you try to get into Safe Mode?The next most common issue for black screen hangs is a problem with the hard drive.You can try these commands from the Recovery Console ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/ )They will attempt to correct issues with the File System on your hard drive.FIXMBRFIXBOOTCHKDSK /RIf that does not fix it, then I'd suggest a bootable diagnostic available from the manufacturer of your hard drive. There's a list of the most common one's in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/ The diagnostic will tell you if your hard drive is starting to fail (or not).

A:Computer starts, boots up and freezes at black screen

There is no issue in running slower (800mhz) RAM in a system that can run the faster (1066mhz) RAM. This, alone, will not cause this kind of problem. You got bad advice.

Do you know if this was the original RAM that came with the laptop? (Not very important but good info if you know)

It is possible that the RAM is defective, or the wrong specs for that laptop, or the two sticks have mis-matched specs, but if you ran a memory tester like Memtest86+ then any problems would have shown up there.

Your symptoms sound more like a power problem. At least that is where I would start. One thing you could try as a test is to remove the battery and run the laptop on just the power supply. Let's see if that changes anything.

Hi,

Can you boot up into the options menu

when you reboot, tap F8 repeatedly until the option menu shows up:

Arrow up to "Last Known Good Configuration" hit enter, see if you can reboot normally.

If you cannot reboot normally, boot back into the option menu again and this time arrow up to "safe mode with networking"
see if you can download and run the following programs

(if you have no internet access - download them to another computer and transfer to the infected PC via USB stick)

A:Solved: Computer Boots, Black Video Screen

Welcome to TSG---

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

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

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

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

screen,( black and white screen with the spinning cursor). Now the problem has progressed to the point that the PC will only boot to the Splash screen for HP and progress no further. It allows one to hit the F10 key to bring up the PhoenixBIOS utiltiy screen, but nothing else. I can load the CD-rom disk for the operating system into the drive, but cannot boot from that disk. Is this a dead/ dying hard disk or something else entirely?

A:Ctrl-Alt-Delete Disabled and Computer Boots to a Black Screen

The problem here isn't that ctrl-alt-delete has been disabled, but that the system doesn't reach a state where it is able to respond to it. This may be be caused by a damaged installation, or it may be caused by a hardware problem, such a the hard disk.

Without the installation media, or the ability to recover from a recovery partition, your options are somewhat limited. If it will run from a live CD this would eliminate most hardware problems. You could run chkdsk from the recovery console but this isn't really conclusive. A better option would be a utility from the drive manufacturer. A thorough memory test would also be in order.

Hey Guys and Girls,

Im having a little problem with my PC. I accidentally knocked out the power chord in the PC and when i turned it back on, it came up with " System Repair". I ran that a few times but it keeps getting stuck on a black screen. Sometimes it runs the repair but fails miserably! but most of the time it just stays with a black screen.

What should i do? I pressed F8 whilst it was booting but no matter what i click, be it safe mode etc.. ) it still stays BLACK

Please Help :O lol its my Boyfriends PC and he wont be happy to see it dead wen he comes home from work :\

You need to get an installation disc and repair it that way. Simply choose F2 or F12 when booting and select to boot from DVD drive.

Hello and thank you for the help.

I decided to upgrade my case because my old thermal take was failing so I removed all my components, reloaded them into this new case and went to boot. Originally it would boot to the windows logo, hang and then restart itself and go directly to the windows failed to start screen where I could attempt a repair or retry loading the os. Repair failed.

I tried resetting the bios to fail safe settings, cleared the CMOS and after doing this I was able to boot into safe mode but not do a normal start. From safe mode I attempted a system restore which did nothing to help. Upon restarting windows I now boot to black in both safe and normal.

If anyone has any idea what might be wrong I would be greatly appreciative.

Hi,

I have been having this problem for the last week or so, I have searched around for a solution but I have not come across one yet. CAn anyone possibly help me out please?
Heres what happens:

On booting up I get as far as the password screen then the screen just goes blank. I can usually get around it by pressing the sleep button on my keyboard and then when I move the mouse it just starts to reboot again. On occassions I have had the option to use the last know settings that worked and things have then been fine and usually once I manage to get the computer going things are fine all day. This morning though it has taken me several boot ups to get it going.

Could this be my video card on its way out?

Many thanks anais
 

A:Windows XP boots up to black screen

Can you do a clean reinstall of windows to confirm that it's not hardware related?

It's rather odd that your computer behaves in the manner described, but it doesn't sound like a failing graphics card. Typically, if a graphics card fails, it won't start again.

It may be the behavior of malware or a virus, but a hardware issue is not totally out of the picture.

I can boot into safe mode. I have tried system recovery, but it doesn't do anything for the problem.

Well...the black screen with flashing cursor in upper left corner...is a typical scenario overcome by running fixmbr.

I don't know much about RAIDs but a failed RAID configuration creates problems of its own that have nothing to do with XP and must be treated as a distinct issue, IMO.

Windows appears to load normally until reaching the logon screen at which point 2 quick cmd windows flash on the screen and i'm left with a cursor and a plain blue screen.

No access to task manager through ctrl+alt+del.

I was thinking it's a video card problem until i plugged in an external monitor and saw a windows error box pop up saying that the program running requires that you not be on battery power.

Pulled the drive and scanned with avast and malwarebytes which found nothing.

Inserted Vista DVD but the repair function is only able to find the HP Restore partition and is unable to locate any backups.

The system runs "mini XP" from Hirens Boot without a problem, but no diagnostics that i ran have been able to find any issues...

A friend asked me to see if I could get his computer running again, but I'm about ready to pull what's left of my hair out. Its an eMachines mini desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Windows will not boot to the desktop screen, only to a black screen and mouse cursor. Hitting F8 only gets you safe mode options, all of which stall the same way. There's no "Last Known Good Configuration" option either. Using a Windows 7 64-bit rescue disk doesn't help, because it doesn't find anything wrong when running the diagnostics, and there aren't any restore points to revert back to. I've already tried the bootrec.exe /fixmbr and /fixboot remedy, no change. The computer is used by their kids quite a bit so I'm wondering if it might be virus/malware/Trojan related? Thanks for your help.

A:Windows 7 boots to black screen w/cursor

Hi There:
Sorry to hear you are having problems with your friend's eMachines pc. They are fine computers.

Before you try any of my sugestions, IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU BACKUP ALL OF YOUR FRIEND'S CRITICAL DATA! You should backup to an External Hard Drive, Flash Drive, or CD/DVD discs first!

With that said; here are the things you can try in this order:

1) Try to boot into the eMachines hidden Partition Recovery using F5, F7, F10, or F12 keys on power-up boot. You can download the eMachines User Manual from their website at: eMachines Support - Welcome to eMachines Support.

Once in that Recovery Menu, it will ask you what repair you want to try, and you want to restore the PC to Factory Condition, which is a DESTRUCTIVE operation and will destroy all of your friend's data and reinstall Win7 and all programs and settings that came with the computer when it was new out of the box right after your friend purchased it. This is why I had you backup your data first before you do this. **also, if you have never done this before, I suggest you take to a local computer expert or Certified Technician at your local computer store**.
THIS IS AN IRREVERSIBLE STEP!

After doing this, and you get the same Black Screen result, most likely your hard drive is damaged and possibly the Motherboard (Main Board) could also be damaged as well. Take to a local Certified Computer Expert at this point.

2.) Ask your friend for the Recovery Discs that came in the box when he/she purchased the computer. Many people lose them, or don't have the complete set. They are available from the Manufacturer, which is now Gateway, as Gateway purchased eMachines the company a few years ago. I will provide that link to purchase discs here: Contact Us

If your friend provides you with the Recovery Discs, there will most likely be from 2-6 dvd discs, possible more. Insert Disc1 of the Factory Recovery Disc set and restart the computer, it will give you a menu and choose the "Restore to Factory Condition" option or equivalent. After 3 hrs. or more (possibly 6 hrs.) it will restore your Win7 on that pc to original condition Win7 with all programs originally installed on that computer at the Factory as I mention in Step #1 above. **Once again, if you've never performed a full Factory Recovery, it is High Risk and I don't recommend it, that's best left to the Computer Experts like me.**

If Win7 boots to the Windows desktop you have fixed your friend's problem and after you test it on the Internet you can copy back all his backed up data onto it for him and return a working pc to him!

If however, Win7 still gives you the same Black Screen or a Black Screen with a white-lettered Error Message such as "ntbootldr.exe not available or not present"; you most likely have a faulty hard drive or Motherboard and it would need to be replaced.

3.) If you wish to try the simplest method to test your hardware, you can also borrow or buy a replacement hard drive or the correct type and capacity and swap the hard drive with the one in the pc now. **THIS STEP REQUIRES EXPERIENCE OPENING UP COMPUTERS; IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE THIS BEFORE AND DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT DOING, IT DON'T--TAKE TO A CERTIFIED COMPUTER EXPERT!!!!!****
If you can then install Win7 using Method #1 or Method #2 above on the hard drive and Win7 now boots; you have identified the culprit as a faulty hard drive and should replace it. If you know how to do that, you can reload his Win7 and then send his faulty hard drive out for Data Recovery to a local Computer Expert to get his data back so you can copy back onto his newly installed Win7 with-new-hard-drive setup and he'll be good to go!

My girlfriends brothers computer is having trouble. Whenever it starts windows, all that loads is a black* screen. It begins startup and shows the motherboards splash screen then just sits in a black screen.

I assume that he wrecked the registry with a virus.

I have tried to insert a windows 7 setup disk to format the hard drive and upgrade it from XP to 7 but it also just sits at a black screen after reading the disk. At the motherboard splash screen I can mash F8 and it will load the operating system chooser and allow me to choose safe mode etc.

If I try any of these options the same thing happens, it just sits at a black screen.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello, i'm trying to fix my cousins PC that was infected with a serious virus/trojan/whattever
 
I already tried to chkdsk, sfc /scannow, windows repair and no success. Even in safe mode, windows boots to a black screen with mouse. Energy properties are working but i have no graphic interface and taskmanager does not work to start explorer.exe manually.
 
After some research, i read that it should be a virus that changed permission settings on system files or folders. 
 
I ran windows defender boot cd and it detected and removed a virus. But still, black screen with mouse.
 
I then ended up reading about FRST64.exe and so i decided to post a log here, asking for help.

Hello all. I am trying to install windows 8.1 on my old windows xp laptop using a bootable USB from the universal USB installer, and when i press f10 on my laptop, and tell it to boot from my USB, it pulls up a black screen with a blinking line(like a terminal). i tried pressing a bunch of keys, and the only one that i got a response from was the enter key, which made a beeping noise. can anyone help me out here? should i use a different program to put the ISO on my USB?

thanks in advance for your help.

EDIT: I'm going to try a program that i used a long time ago when the UUI wasn't working called Rufus. I'll let you all know if it works. Also I'll set it to NTFS instead of fat32 and see if that helps.

Hello,

We understand that many customers are receiving error 0xC1900101 – 0x40017 when installing Windows 8.1. This error is typically caused by an incompatible driver.



If you are receiving this error:
1.
First, please double-check the error code. There are many variations of error 0xC1900101, each with a different location code -- the error extension, located after the dash. The information in this thread is intended only for location code 0x40017. If you are receiving a different location code, these steps are unlikely to resolve your issue.

2.
Check that you’ve already updated all of your drivers. In particular, if you have an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card, make sure you’ve installed the latest Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers


3.
Check that you do not have any Frequently Asked Questions - What devices are supported by the SteelSeries Engine? that support the SteelSeries Engine installed on your PC. The SteelSeries Engine software is currently not supported on Windows 8.1. Please uninstall the software before attempting to update to Windows 8.1

Yeah just registered with Ten Forums and all that good stuff and so commonly to a Windows with cursor? boots black 10 no screen here's my first of Windows 10 commonly boots to a black screen with no cursor? possibly many issues I shall bring to you xD I upgraded my preview Windows 10 commonly boots to a black screen with no cursor? build of Windows to the pro final version because the preview wasn't able to find additional builds and kept crapping out on standard updates All went smoothly but the first thing I noticed is that the next time I booted cold Windows would get past the quot starting windows quot screen and play the startup sound However the logon interface never appeared or the cursor All that was displayed was a solid black screen I hard reset by holding down the power button and tried it again which gave me the same thing Again hard reset This still commonly happens along with my CMOS date time settings apparently being wiped after such reset Sometimes the cursor appears but mostly it doesn't Usually after trying enough times it'll pull through or by starting it after selecting a recovery option from F quot Enable low resolution video quot I know worked before but it didn't give me low res display Not that I'm complaining It could likely be because I installed over the preview and in-place installations typically have issues I'm also running a program to provide titlebars with aero styled glass transparency and my graphics driver is up to date Any thoughts

Probably a dumb question, but did you upgrade from 7 or 8.1 through the insider program to build 10130?

Basically as far as I can see I am experiencing the exact same problem described in this thread http forums techguy org windows-vista -vista-black-screen-cursor html which unfortunately does not seem to end with a clear solution The first incidence of the problem was a spontaneous restart during boot which caused the subsequent boot to go into the Startup Repair Console I ran the quot Fix problems quot option and it performed a disk check then claimed it had fixed the problem and would reboot Subsequent reboots result in the black screen with mouse cursor only with no interaction possible Safe mode mouse boots only screen black Vista with to Windows Safe mode command prompt and Safe mode with networking all exhibit the same behaviour except with lower screen resolution Manually entering the Repair Console from the F startup menu works but no problems can be found using the Repair problems option Other things I have tried which made no difference Last Known Good configuration Removing all USB and network cables before boot except for keyboard which I need to select Windows from the boot menu Running chkdsk F from the command prompt in the Repair Console no errors were found Downloading the Vista Recovery CD Windows Vista boots to black screen with mouse only and booting off it then running the Repair Console from here same result as running Repair Console from the HD Testing memory with memtest no errors Resetting BIOS to default values Using the Repair Console to revert to a System Restore Point no system restore points are available Other than using the recovery partition to wipe the entire HD including my Linux partitions I am not sure what else Windows Vista boots to black screen with mouse only to try nbsp

A:Windows Vista boots to black screen with mouse only

I just ran into the same situation, today itself. I didn't see it happen but someone plugged a 27 in 60HZ refresh-rate-requiring monitor into a laptop which didn't support such mode.

Apparently, the computer blue-screened and rebooted, throwing a blue screen and rebooting ad infinitum.

I ran the repair, same as you did; ran the same diagnostics and no restore points either (have a 9/2010 system image available -not on the system but from a backup-, and no restore points just like you. I'd prefer not to go that back in time).

Last Known Good reverts the registry to the way it was when the system last succesfully booted *AND* there was a succesful logon. If you had auto-logon enabled, then it is useless (I think this laptop did...). Anyways, didn't do a thing for me.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/101790

-------------

After a few hours of different attempts, still nothing.

Using the repair console:
Ran SFC. No files are invalid.
Manually copied the old registry files (from the regbackup directory) into the registry directory (the repair console is a separate Windows instance, so the one being repaired is "offline". No go. This probably screwed the system, maybe permanently - have backups of the registry files anyway.

The files are on C:\Windows\System32\config, but I seriously advise against messing with them unless you know exactly what you are doing.

After both things, now I am totally clueless.... No registry issues, no system files changed... I know it has to do with the video card or monitor driver.... That's all.

There is plenty of threads on this all over and spanning back to Windows XP, and no common solution.

Researching more...tomorrow.

A:Windows boots to black screen (Need fixed for work)

Usually a black screen on normal boot means that the video card drivers are messed up. You can try to get into safe mode, go to start->run->"msconfig". go to BOOT.INI tab and select /BASEVIDEO. Then restart and try to get into normal Windows. If you can, then you know for a fact that it's the video card drivers and you can deal with it.

But I'm not sure why it would take you 5 minutes to hear the Windows startup tune, that might be suggesting something else.

In these situations it's helpful to think about what was the last thing that your wife did, before this happened, it might help shed some light on the cause.

runtaylor,

wonderful start to the day!

all is not lost.

in all that info about your system, I missed whether it is a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Win7 and the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Why is that important?

I would like for you to go to a Win 7 system which works and which also has a 32 bit verion installed, if you have the 32 bit version installed--or to go to a 64 bit system if that is what is installed.

Now you will make a System Repair Disc on that system and here is how:
CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button
=========================================
=========================================

If you have a Win 7 DVD, then you can skip that step.

What you are going to do is:
Boot up from one or the other.
Get to the System Repair options
Run a System Restore NOT!!! a System Repair.

We've got tutorials for both cases, but let me see if I can find a write-up which may get you there easier:

here's one of the two:
SYSTEM RECOVERY / REPAIR OPTIONS
USING YOUR SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

Insert Win 7 SYSTEM REPAIR DISC into the optical reader.

Shutdown your computer.
Power up your computer.

A dialog window will appear:
Select your Language Preference | NEXT button

Select desired operating system if more than 1 shown |
Use recovery tools... Radio button | NEXT button

Select the desired repair option
Startup Repair
System Restore
System Image Recovery
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Command Prompt

===============================
===============================
For Startup Repair
1) Click on System Repair and run system repair
2) Reboot
3) Repeat this sequence 3 times



===============================
===============================
For System Restore
Choose a different restore point radio button | NEXT
Show more restore points checkbox (lower left) |
Highlight the desired restore point |
Scan for affected programs (lower right) |
When you find a usable restore point, then CLOSE | NEXT |
YES | Your computer will restart to finish the restore |
After the computer has restarted, FINISH
===============================
===============================
To restore your computer using an image you created using Win 7 Backup
Click on System Image Recovery

===============================
===============================
NOTE:
You may need to tell your computer to boot from the optical drive.
Power Up your computer.
Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn?t offer this capability, try tapping the F2 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.
===============================
===============================

and here is the other

USING SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS USING A WIN 7 DVD

1) Insert Win 7 DVD into optical reader.
2) Shutdown computer.
3) Boot up computer from the Win 7 DVD
If your computer doesn?t boot from the optical drive, then
Immediately after pushing your Power ON button,
Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn?t offer this capability, then try tapping F2 key instead of the F12 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.
4) Select your Language Preference, NEXT button
5) Click on Repair your Computer
6) Select your operating system, click on NEXT
7) Select the desired repair option

A:Windows boots into black screen with cursor after installing ubuntu

Your Windows 7 partition can be having inconsistencies go back to the startup repair as you did before.

Reboot or turn on the machine. As soon as you see your machine's name logo splash screen keep tapping F8. Go to "Advanced Options" or "Repair Computer" Select your language then "Repair Your Computer" An installation of Windows should be detected after that select "Next"

If that does not fix the issue. Do the same as before go to Next again go to command prompt type in

Code:

CHKDSK C: /R

Also you do not need Wine to access Windows files Ubuntu can access all Windows partitions and files via the Ubuntu GUI alone. Wine is used to install and run some Windows programs mainly games written for Windows but experimental at best.

Okay, this is all using a computer that is property of my grandparents... My brothers sometime come here to play a game that requires a higher resolution on the monitor, so I suspect that may somehow tie into this problem.

When I restart Windows and try to run normal mode, it gets to the step right before user account selection and idles at a black screen. I also noticed that, on my monitor, the green light under the first icon (which I suppose represents an active display) goes off, opposed to how it is now (in safe mode with networking) where it's on.

I don't know why this is happening. Can anyone please help?

A:Black Screen after splash screen

I can answer just part of your question. Hitting F8 to go into Safe Mode won't actually solve your problem by itself but it should allow you to get into Windows to try to solve the problem particularly if the problem is caused by software. If you uninstall your graphics driver, Windows generic VGA driver should take over after you reboot.

Hello-

I have a Gateway Model #5310 hard drive, with an Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family graphics card, operating system Windows XP Home Edition.

Awhile back I bought a new 23 inch Dell model #ST2310 HD monitor, and for awhile it worked fine, but now when I startup the screen goes black after my desktop loads. I know the desktop is back there b/c all the pop ups show,the cursor shows and even the screen saver shows after a bit. I can get in and see everything in safe mode with networking where I have downloaded the latest VGA driver from the gateway site. Is it possible I need a new graphics card for this hard drive b/c its not compatible with the monitor? I am stumped.

I appreciate any help someone could provide me.
 

A:New Monitor-Black screen after splash

Welcome to TSG, Christy. If you can see your cursor and screen saver, just not your desktop, then the issue is probably not with the monitor or your video drivers.

If you can see everything in safemode, go to the device manager and uninstall your video card, then reboot and let it load to windows normally. Windows will automaticly reinstall the driver and reset the Resolution and refresh rate. If you are still unable to see the desktop, then try bringing up the task manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then click File > New task and type Explorer.exe.

Earlier today my computer froze and when I restarted it, it loaded the XP splash screen but then went black. The computer was still running, but the screen was black and I couldn't do anything. I tried to reboot in safe mode, but it hangs on the "loading-processes screen". I've also tried repairing the region with my windows XP disc, but it didn't resolve anything. I've tried two different video cards and different RAM configurations, but the same problem persists every time. I have also done nothing new to my software, or changed any hardware arrangements in my computer over the past few months. Any suggestions? Your help would be much appreciated!!!
