Display turns on to blank black screen

Q: Display turns on to blank black screen

I started having issues yesterday, the day after I installed teamviewer a program that is on my iPad also to remotely control the laptop. At first the screen started freezing when I was in the middle of a Java game. So I restarted the laptop only to have it freeze at the main screen (after login).

The screen would freeze the display would change to a very low resolution (I think). So I kept restarting it only to repeat. Until eventually once past the windows logo the screen would turn black and blank. Sometimes the display would turn on black and blank and other times it would do that after the logo.

A few times I managed to get it to go into safe mode and I restored to a few days ago but it made no difference, I also tried many other things like changing some settings but nothing worked.

So after like 2 or 3 hours I Rolled back and disabled "nvidia quadro nvs 135m" (since I read it might be causing the issue and I should uninstall it which I couldn't), once I disabled it I restarted the computer and made it to the main screen without issues, and I could even load my game. I enabled it again And restarted the computer only to have the same issues so I disabled it again after finally getting into safe mode.

I don't know if it works fine now, I left it on at most for 5-10 minutes without any issues and I never actually logged into the game to see if it works.
Like I said I tried restoring to an earlier time but I think the issue is with that particular driver but I have no idea how to fix it.

A: Display turns on to blank black screen

Go here:

Check automatically for a video driver for the on-board "nvidia quadro nvs 135m" video card. Doing this may solve your problem

Hi guys,

Basically as the title suggests, when I turn on my PC it powers up, I hear fans spinning yet my screen will stay black. To add to this when it stays blank my keyboard also does not light up.

So far the only way for me to access my PC is to turn it off and on a few times, usually including completely disconnecting it from the power for a short while.

PC Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor
GeForce GTX 760
8.00 GB RAM
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V 610W Power Supply

Rocca ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard
Rocca XTD Gaming Mouse
(First time having a gaming mouse/keyboard so I was not sure if maybe they caused problems, sucked extra power etc..)

I'm not too experienced with the ins and outs of computers but all I can think is maybe my PSU is not giving enough power (though I get no warning beeps), my Keyboard might be the issue? I hope you guys can help. I've thought, maybe do I need to update the BIOS? If so how do I do that?
 

A:PC Turns on BUT my screen is still black/blank?

Is this a new build that will not post or has it been running then developed a problem?

Have you tried disconnecting ALL drives [both hd and optical] removing any usb device ie printer, scanner, hub, etc and then pw ON? See if the mb will reliably complete POST. If it does complete post a few times, then start connecting devices one at a time until you find the failed part. If it does not complete POST in the above config, then you will need to start swapping parts with known good units; start with the pw supply.

Next post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb installed, exact ram installed, etc. Note 8gig of ram does not really tell us much; 8gig of corsair 123xxx, tells us a lot more.

If you can get the system to post, enter the bios or uefi and post the following info; cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values.

So I ve encounterd this issue while im playing video games (mostly Tera), in the middle of the game the computer screen goes black (sometemies even other colors), but my computer is still running, although my Hard drive indicator isnt blinking.
I have a:
Intel core i5 3570k, Asus gtx 770, 8 gb of ram, 1TB HDD, 650W Psu,
I dont think its because of overheating, because when i look up the temperatures the max on my gpu is 75? on full load what is fine for the 770, and my cpu is on full load at about 54? max.
So could it be a software problem or my HDD is not working properly.
If anyone could reply i would be thankful.
Thank you!

Hi,
I'm having trouble with two of my desktops.
Desktop #1 Problem:
When all cords and such are plugged in, I press the power button. The desktop turns on for about 1-2 seconds and then restarts. The bios doesn't flash, the os doesn't boot. As far as I can tell the desktop restarts indefinitely. Any ideas what's going on here?
--Desktop Type: HP Pavilion a705W
I found someone with a similar problem here

Desktop #2 Problem:
I bought some 3M Dust Remover a few days ago. I disconnected power, along with everything else, from a desktop of mine. Pulled the cover off and started blowing the dust out of the case. I put everything back together, plugged it in, and the desktop doesn't work. It boots to a blank screen with the the power and hard drive led's stuck on, on the front of the desktop. The led on the back of the power supply turns on, I can hear the hard drive spin up, it detects the cd/dvd drives, floppy drive and then just hangs with the led's stuck on. Anyone have an idea what might be going on here?
--Desktop Type: Compaq Presario S4200NX

Thanks for the help, I'm hoping to get atleast one of these back online w/o buying a whole new desktop.

A:HELP! Desktop turns on and restarts repeatedly, other turns on to black screen

Hi….

Desktop 1:

Do you see anything on your screen at all while this is happening?

Have you tried to press the setup key to see if the BIOS will come up and make changes?

Do you have any USB devices (other than keyboard or mouse) hooked up? If so, try disconnecting them and see if it will at least POST or attempt to go into the OS.

WARNING: Before checking the capacitors, disconnect the power cord on your system and press & hold the POWER button to allow the power to discharge! Also, you should always ground yourself before touching computer components to prevent static discharge!

Just FYI, some of the motherboards in this series of HP’s have issues with the capacitors.

You should take a look at the capacitors to see if the tops of them are raised or discolored. Also, if you put your finger on the top of the capacitors, they should feel as if they are INDENTED and not flush or raised. Raising or discoloration (up to and including a black tar looking substance on the tops indicate a leaking capacitor).

Desktop 2:

Any POST sounds (beeps) produced at all?

Have you tried the monitor from Desktop 1 on this one?

Anything at all displayed on the monitor, to include CHECK CABLE message?

Recommendation: Open the case again and ensure that all the cards, memory, drive cables and so forth are all connect properly and not loose or dislodged.

Do you know how to RESET your BIOS to default using the onboard jumpers?

Here is a detailed link on troubles... Read more

Hi,
I have a problem with my pc.
my computer screen turns red in colour or goes blank sometimes. I cannot say when it happens.
my computer configurations are windows 7, 1gb ram,intel pentium 4 processor.
I unplugged all the wires fixed them again,cleaned my ram,then its works normally.
sometimes it takes more than a few times to get this right. I gave it for repair,by the technician said its working perfectly. but after a few days,I am facing the same problem.
 

A:Display goes off(either blank or turns red)

System specs... ?
Is this a laptop, or a desktop?.
If a desktop, swap out the monitor and see if the problem persists.
.
It sounds to me that the backlight of the monitor screen is failing.
(after seeing the pictures, I am changing my mind!)
On a desktop, just throw it away and get a new monitor.
On a laptop... it is possible to do a repair.
I did on a Dell, a number of years back,
usually less expensive than a new laptop...
but... may be more headache than it is worth.
This may mean replacing the tube,
or the circuit board that drives it
or both.

I was going to re-download the Operating system through a microsoft download with my school. It said I had to finish installing AVG antivirus when I was downloading the secure download manager through my school. So I just uninstalled it along with the virus vault and all data, and when I rebooted the machine, the gateway logo shows up the the microsoft vista with the bar that goes back and forth showing that it is loading and then the display goes black and does not come back. I even tried to use my VGA cable to see if I could veiw it on my TV and it wouldn't display anything. I don't know if I released a virus that was in the vault or what happened, but does anyone have a clue what I can do to get the display back, or can I install a new disc with the operating system when I have no display? I won't be able to see the screen to know what to push.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. So, these are my problems described in the title. I cannot change desktop from black, only can set a picture as a background.

When I am in pictures folder for example, I see blank or black thumbnails.
When I right click and go to personalize, I can see black themes instead of actual pictures.

I tried almost everything.
- reinstalling video driver
- clearing thumbnail from disk cleanup
- resetting dwm.exe
- going into safemode and then restaring into normal windows
- I tried fixing shell by using "fixshell"
- clearing & repairing registry errors
- ran an error checker
- ran a file checker

I have Microsoft Office 2010 - I heard that it could be the issue, but maybe I am not right, anyway...

I attached a print screen photo.

And, I am hopeless, any help please? Thanks

Office 2010 should not be a factor here. Public pics folder is empty - it should have sample pics in it.

My configuration is Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, X1950XTX Radeon, 2gb ram, 250HD, 500w powersupply.
So one day I'm using my computer, which had been working wonders for 3 months, and it just shuts down. Then it wouldn't turn back on, at all, no power anywhere. So, I replaced the power supply. I made no other changes other than the power supply. Now it powers up, all the fans turn on (including from the video card), LED light turns on, even the CD rom driver works but I get nothing at all on the screen. And since i get a blank screen with both of my monitors I can't see how it's a monitor problem. I also get no beeps when I turn the computer on, and although I am not sure, I think the hard drive disk spins.

I can't see how it would be the video card since it was previously working and nothing changed on that. The only thing that makes sense to me is that when the old power supply broke the motherboard or, i hope not, the CPU got damaged. Has anyone seem or heard of someone having a similar problem? What Should I try? How can I find out if its the mother board or the CPU malfunctioning? Thank you for the help.
 

A:Computer Turns on but Screen is Blank! Tried Everything, Please Help!

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

First things first, when you installed the new PSU, did you connect the power cord to your graphics card? Did you connect two power connections to your motherboard? Both the 24 pin and the ATX12v connectors?

Assuming you did, I'd strip down to the basics to help with the troubleshooting. Remove your motherboard from the case, and set it on a box beside your case. Intall ONLY the cpu/heatsink, one stick of ram and your graphics card (unless you have onboard graphics as well, in which case do not install your graphics card).

Connect the case's speakers to the motherboard.

Connect your monitor to the graphics, and then use a screwdriver to quickly "short" the two pins normally connected to the case's power on switch.

Tell us exactly what happens at this point. What lights are on, what fans are spinning, and what beeps you are getting. Good luck!

Also, please give us your motherboard make/model number, as well as your PSU maker name.

A while ago, my Asus netbook decided to stop working, and it wasn't something that happened while I was using it. Last time I had used it, it worked fine, I turned it off, and when I turned it on again a few hours later, it would turn on but the screen would remain blank. I tried turning it on and off several times, but nothing. Eventually, I got frustrated and decided to open it up. I took it apart as much as I could, and once it was opened up, I decided to turn it on, and just like that, it worked. All I did was open it up, I did not remove any internal hardware or replace anything. I closed it back up, and since then, it's been working fine. I still have no idea how I "fixed" it.

So, that's that. Not too long ago, I bought a Sony Vaio netbook, and just like the Asus one, I am now having the same trouble with this. It was working fine for a while, and then one day, I turn it on and the screen remains blank. I tried opening this one, but it was a bit more difficult to open, and when I opened the Asus, I messed up the keyboard cover, so the keyboard sort of feels like it's indented in. So, I didn't wanna risk doing the same thing to the Sony one.

When I turn it on, the first thing that comes up is a black screen that reads VAIO in the center, and then after that, it's a black screen with a short horizontal blinking white line on the top left corner. The same short line you see when you open cmd.exe. However, if I try to type anythin... Read more

Usually the amber color indicates a power problem... as if your power adapter or cable to the power adapter is broken, or the power socket is damaged.

It may be blanking out like its changing resolutions because it is in fact doing just that. Are you using a DVI to analog converter on the back of your video card? because thats just what it does.

Hello,
 
I am encountering an issue of when the Dell optiplex 755 boots up, it boots through the Windows XP logo just fine, once it tries to transition between the logo and loading the system up, it just shows a black screen and nothing else happens. I tried using a bootable Windows XP flash drive to repair the system files and it loads the Windows XP setup ok but when it runs through all of the commands on the bottom of the screen and the last one says "Starting Windows" , it takes me to a blue screen (screenshot below). I have HIRENS and have done a lot of the chkdsk commands to fix the files and everything comes back ok. I tried to clone the hard drive with the same exact hard drive and still the same issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.

Our Gateway MS2285 was working just fine this morning. I turned it off normal, by using shut down. I got home from work, hit the power button, did some stuff, came back to the laptop and thought the screen had timed out so I hit the space key to get the screen to come back on. Nothing!

I held the power button down to shut it down, thinking it started wrong. After a 15 second wait, I restarted it. Again nothing. I can faintly hear the fan running but nothing else. The 2 lights showing it's on and the battery is charged light up. I hit the volume buttons and they light up als the P and the one next to it will flash if I hit them ( I don't use them so I don't know if that's normal.)
I looked online for possible solutions and found that people had unplugged it, taken the battery out, held the power key for 20 seconds and restarted...or before restarting it f1, f2, f3, f4 and enter...or hit the fn + f6 keys at the same time. None of these worked at all.

HELP PLEASE!!! My poor old desktop, I'm on now, is slow as molasses We use the laptop a lot.

You are all always so very helpful I hope you can help me resolve this issue very inexpensively.

Thanks for any help.

Heys, nice to meet everyone.
Well my first problem is that ever since i got my pc (6 yrs ago) it frequently restarted. So i turned off automatically restart & frequently got bsods. The first was DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL & the second one was PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. I searched on google the problems and it said something about my NIC & Sound Driver. So i decided to open up my computer and try to swap my NIC whilst in the process just check out my graphics card and my ram to see if it was faulty, After that i turned on my computer and at first it beeped, then made this screechy sound for a split second and i smelt something weird. After that i turned it off re-inserted the RAM, NIC, GC & when i turn it on i get a blank screen. Both my cd drives keep resetting or blinking and wont open up, All my fans work & the red light and green light under my power button just stays there.

Specs of my computer:
- Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
- NVIDIA Geforce4 MX440SE 64mb
- PC333 512mb RAM x 2 (1024mb)
- 80GB HD + 120GB HD
- GIGABYTE Motherboard (MODEL: GA-8SG800)

--

The BSODs are caused when i play games like; Counter-Strike & Warcraft III. Also while i listen to music using WMP10. It can sometimes just be caused from sitting there.

Well it started awhile back when my PSU died so I got a new better one, but the computer would still turn on but stay at a blank screen. I tested my parts and came to the conclusion that it was either my mobo or CPU or both, so I went to the store and got a new Asus mobo and a sempron chip and installed them. The computer still has the same problem and I don't know why and what to do. Sorry for my english and any help is much appreciated.

Please use descriptive thread titles from now on.Thanks.
 

A:Computer turns on, but I get a blank screen after replacing bad psu.

So how did you test your parts?

Start with a minimal system - nothing but mobo, PSU, video, CPU and a single RAM module. Preferrably not in the computer case but on a nonconductive surface like a wooden desk.

If it doesn't work, replace the video (if external) and RAM.

Look over your habits. Did you take anti-static precautions when putting the thing together? (Something as basic as touching the computer case or the PSU before touching any other components.) Did you happen to work on the thing while it was plugged on and you dropped a screw on the motherboard?

I have a Dell Inspiron and it seems that they are the worst that have the problems. It is a vista and a year and a half old. Before it died/crashed it would turn black. In the light i could still see the programs running and it just faded the screen. I tried setting the hibernation to never and turning off screen to never but it still fades to that same blackness. I cant even see properly through it and i cant do anything to turn it back to it was before.

I rebooted it to the factory edition but it still does the same thing. Please help!

I know this might sound silly, but were you running off the battery and now maybe the battery is running low, if this is the case the screen will become black after the battery gets too low.

Hello, I really need help with a problem I've been having at random. This has happened 5 times (and counting) and they were all at times I was of course away from my computer. The screen goes black and my keyboard and mouse doesn't light up anymore. My computer is still on but I can hear my CPU fan racing every time this happens.
 
I don't know exactly why this happens other than a possible graphic driver error but I am updated to the latest. I check my event log and this is the only error that I see happening each time this happens:

I read online sxs.dll belongs to Microsoft for something called Fusion? Do I need this on my computer or is the problem something more than this. If someone can please help me with this I would be happy and If you need any logs I will try to post them ASAP. Thanks

Alright, today I hibernated my computer (I usually hibernate) left it for an hour and attempted to turn it back on, now it loads fine but once it gets to the point where it should display the vista logo and then the log in screen the screen goes blank. The hard disk light is blinking fast so fast it's almost just staying on and the wireless does its blinking patterns as if it's redying the wireless connection but the screen remains black. I've tried safe mode, same result. Two screens, same result. I booted Ubuntu and it was fine so I'm using that now.

First of all, any insight into how I should go about fixing this?
If not, I have extremely important files on the hard drive is there any way you could recommend getting them back?

Thanks for any help, I'd hate to have to take it in and risk the guys at the store deciding it's easier just to wipe the hard drive or something.

A:Screen turns black before reaching the login screen

Are you using a Ubuntu Live CD, or are you dual booting?
If you're dual booting, you can access your ntfs partition from Ubuntu using steps listed on many many web sites: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...earch&aq=f&oq=
Some are easier than others.

As for fixing your Vista. I have reservations because in some of my steps Vista has this nasty habit of overwriting the master boot record with its own without warning you (making you unable to boot into ubuntu if you dual boot), so research some more, and proceed with caution. If you boot into the Vista DVD, I think you can click repair, and you have a bunch of options and it looks like this:
http://neosmart.net/wiki/download/at...eryOptions.png
I haven't tried them in a while so I can't really recall what each does.
You can try going back using a restore point. Be VERY cautious with "Startup Repair". I think that's the one that rewrites the master boot record. (if you really need to try it, research how you can backup the master boot record in ubuntu, then restore it if needed - usually a flash drive, a floppy, or a bootable CD may be needed - you most likely would be able to do it from the live cd if you know the steps though).
And if all else fails, do a repair install. Can't recall how it's done, but there are many sites dedicated to that topic. You can also ask around the forum about it.

Hello. I've come to hopefully find a solution to a boot up problem I'm having with my computer. There are several factors that I'm honestly not sure will play a role or not, mainly because I'm not very understanding when it comes to computers.

The problem is that when I push the power button of my computer, it sends no signal to my screen. I can't tell if it loads anything or not either. I can think of a few things that might have some effect on this, but I'm not sure.

About three months back after cleaning my neglected tower of dust and such, it started to shut off rapidly after boot up. To inspect the problem, I had a friend look at the computer. He removed the cooling unit on the Processor revealing that my 8year old computer had next to no thermal compound. So after putting of ordering some for about three months, we had applied some about 2 days ago. The computer then booted up fine, but seemed to have an excess amount of lag. So I wiped the computer and reinstalled XP tonight. When it was booted up, it worked fine, so I went into IE to download firefox as it's my preference, then started reinstalling my drivers. First I installed my Videocard, then kept my computer booted up for my sound drivers which I got from the Compaq homesite. After doing this, I rebooted my computer. Not I wanted to get simple things such as AIM and and Java. So when i go to boot up Firefox from it's default homepage, my computer shuts down. when I go to reboot it, it doesn't start and I'm ...

Hey Tech Support Guy's users,

Yesterday, I got back to my house, and went on the computer for a short while, then while looking on the internet, my Inspiron 1525's screen died on me. Not only my main screen, but also my other monitors as well, saying there was no signal. I was assuming that it is a dying Video Card, but I wanted to have more insight regarding my question. Is my fear correct, or it is the drivers? I haven't updated my drivers since 4 months ago, so I doubt it is my drivers.

Any who, if you need more information from me, please ask away and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Try taking out your graphics card, if your xp disc is SP1 try SP2.

Try another card/onboard and clean the agp slot with compressed air.

Hello all,

This is my first post here, so please excuse me if I have created this thread in the wrong place. For quite some time (perhaps about two-three months) my screen has been flickering and turning black at random times. Sometimes my screen will be fine for a few days in a row, and then it might flicker for a few minutes and eventually just turn black. Usually what I do is turn it off and on a few times and eventually it returns normal. The thing is, I know it is still turned on because my music player will still operate, and it is a lighter shade of black, meaning I can still faintly see what was on my screen. Further, I initially thought it was an issue related to my charger being wrecked, but I have since replaced this and the problem persists. My guess is that it is some sort of virus, which I am basing on my quick reading of some other websites where others have reported similar problems. I'm really not a tech whiz, so does anyone have any suggestions?

Any input will be highly appreciated.

I'm not very well versed in this area, but it does sound like a case of a faulty monitor since your programs run as per normal during those flickers.. You might wish to post more details on your specs and age of your hardware.

I am using Windows 8 on my laptop. If I connect my laptop to a video projector and left it idle for about 4 minutes, the screen turns black. So I am trying to avoid this. Here is what I did so far.

Next I looked for the screen saver and found that I have not activated it at all. Also the (Fig. 2)

Next I tried to Change the power setting by going to Control panel -> Change power setting -> Change when to turn off the display and set all of the as Never (Fig. 3)

I still got the black screen after doing these. Finally I noticed that after I left my laptop idle for about 4 minutes, it says "maintenance is in progress" in the "Action center". After searching through web, I found that an easy way to stop this maintenance during my presentation. I disconnected from the wireless internet temporary when giving a presentation. I tested this and after disconnecting from internet there will be no "maintenance is in progress".

However, the screen still turns black during presentation, even after disconnecting from the internet. Any help will be appreciated.

Anyway, we were experimenting with it for whatever reason (i guess malware removal had us feeling brave) and we unhooked her monitor, and plugged her desktop computer via the monitor cord into my laptop. i know that you can plug a monitor into a laptop and use that instead of the laptop screen, so we wanted to see if it would work with the desktop instead of the monitor.

My laptop from time to time will just shut down the screen to a black screen, I can still hear things running in the background, example a game will be playing but nothing on screen. I have to push the button to shut the whole computer down and restart, could it be the screen going, or is there a fix for this, Thank you so much,

A:laptop screen randomly turns black? wtf help

It's more than likely a loose video card. The card sits almost directly under the keypad on a laptop and after use can come loose just enough to be an on again off again problem. Jazz

My operating system is VistaStarter SP1, I am using a built in graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 with max. memory of 313MB. This problem occurs when I play a game called "Special Force Online" and when I maximize spider solitaire... how mysterious. It also shows in the Nvidia Control Panel.

I've checked to see that the hard drive is spinning and it is. the hdd access light flashes.i have not checked the ram yes since it's a laptop and difficult to get to. but i'm pretty sure that's not the issue. since from what i've listened to it sounds like it goes through post then sits the fro about thirty seconds probly asking if i want to start windows in safe mode normal. when i just sit there after about that much time has past the cpu fans start going again a little faster and i can here that it's accessing the hard drive but since i can' see anything it's hard to tell if that's true. i'm thinking that it's a bad graphics card but i'm not sure.

ok so the problem is that sometimes you can see the picture and sometimes you can't see it. i don't know what causes that but that's what happens. i got it working again. but after it went to sleep the screen never came back on. would that mean that there is something wrong with one of the windows files? i know one of them is the one used to bring the computer back from sleep mode. it's running windows vista. maybe this isn't a hardware issue?

whenever i play a game, approximately, 40 mins-1hr later, both horizontal and vertical purple lines show up on my screen. the game is still visible though. after about 5 mins of the purple lines, which get worse every minute, the screen flickers and turns black continuously. after approximately 2 mins of this, the screen turns black altogether. when i try alt+tab the screen stays black but i know it's worked because i hear the sound that the messages my friends have left me on msn

this has been happening for the past few days. one game does work, oblivion, and my friend gave me this on a disk. some other games which have the above problem are frozen throne, fable- the lost chapters and soldier front. frozen throne and warcraft 3 are iso files and i thought that that might've been the problem but soldier front is a free online game and it also has the problem.

could it be a problem with my graphics card? NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT. (Resolution 1024 by 768 by 32.)

any help will be really appreciated. THANKS in advance!!!!
 

A:Screen Flickers Then Turns Black(When Gaming)

Possibly a heat issue. Have you cleaned out the inside of your system recently?
Try installing something like Speedfan (free download, easy to find via Google) and have that running. Then you can monitor your CPU, GPU etc temperatures.

Also, ensure all your drivers are up to date.

No guarantees this is the problem but anything that is fairly quick, free and easy is worth a shot first of all.

Ok, so...I just got over my BSOD problem by disabling crossfire on my system. It was working fine for a few days (And it still technically is), but I'm having a strange issue now. The computer turns on and loads windows fine, but the screen is black until Windows actually loads. Basically, I don't see a splash screen for the motherboard and there's no way for me to get into the BIOS.

Has anyone experienced this problem before? Any ideas?

System Specs:
Processor: Intel i7 3960x
Motherboard: ASRock Extreme 9 X79 chipset
16 GB of RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz
Graphics: 2 x Radeon 7970's (Both cards are connected, despite Crossfire being disabled)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 Bit

A:Screen goes black UNTIL windows turns on: Can't get into BIOS

Does the motherboard have a built in video port? You could try hooking your monitor to that to get into the BIOS. Then from there.. not sure, maybe the internal video port was enabled by a BIOS reset or something, try turning it off and maybe it'll then use your normal card(s) during POST?

Hey guys!

I recently bought a new computer (all separate components which my brother assembled for me) and everything works fine.

Sounds like your video card is not installed and setup properly. I'd recommend going through the whole installation & setup from the start. If the problem continues then you need to test the vide card.

Hello,

A friend came to me for help, and I am leary of doing anything without conferring with the experts. Here is the history:

Originally the PC had a periodic BSOD - 0x0000007B. I was able to boot to the "last known good configuration", and run MalwareBytes (cleaning up a number of Adware problems), and I ran the ESET online scanner (which found nothing). I made a restore point just in case.

After one or two more boots, I once again received the BSOD 0x0000007B. Attempted to reboot using last known configuration to no avail. Now all I get is a black screen after the initial boot messages (no windows splash screen).

I have looked at your guides about running CHKDSK, FIXMBR, FIXBOOT. I'm just a little leary that I may lose data on his hard disk (he says that there is a tremendous amount of music on there). I have a few questions:

1. What will be the impact of CHKDSK on his local files (deletion, damage)?
2. I did type in FIXMBR, and it stated the following:

"This computer appears to have a non-standard or invalid master boot record. FIXMBR may damage your partition tables if you proceed. This could cause all the partitions on the current hard disk to become inaccessible. If you are not having problems accessing your drive, do not continue. Are you sure you want to write a new MBR?"

Can I still run this without damage ?

I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing before continuing. I'm assuming this is an XP proble... Read more

Hello all

Just got myself this (old) new computer, that I was going to use for a media center. But it randomly crashes, and i can't seem to figure out why. I formated it yesterday, so I doubt it would be a virus.

Sometimes it goes black, and picture returns within a few seconds, but other times it freezes up completely. When I restart it (with the power button) I cant get pasted the BIOS screen, but if I unplug the power supply, and hit the power button a few times and then plug in the power, it starts up like normal. (does that make it a RAM issue?)

Freezes have happened doing the following: Using XBMC (both in menus and while watching a video), while Internet Download Manager was running. While file transfer was running, and a few times while i wasnt at the computer.

Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
ATI Radeon HD 5670
Intel Core i3 CPU

my desktop screen goes black/blank all of a sudden like it's in sleep mode ( the power doesn't actually turn off at any point and there's nothing i can do to turn it back on except use the power button on the tower). if there is sound at the moment of the crash then it just loops rapidly again and again to infinity.

i first dusted the tower and thought that was it since there was a huge amount of dust inside and after doing it worked fine for almost 2 days when it started doing the same thing again. the fastest it crashes is when i tried to play WoW (only a few minutes) and play youtube videos (10+ min). my graphics card is a geforce 210 512mb and i've had it for about a year, worked fine all this time. when i took it out last time it was really hot, i'm not sure how hot it's supposed to be but it burned my fingers more or less.

i have the same system and components, i play the same games and run the same apps as i did before when it was working well ( i am not sure if i had any crashes of this sort in the past but i believe it did happen once or twice over at least a year). i don't play and high end graph games or anything that needs a better card.

i use vista 64 on a intel quad [email protected] with 6gb.

do you think it's the graphics card or something else? what can i do to find out? Thanks for help!

Hello,
I am not sure if this is the right place to ask my question, but I have a HP Pavilion dv9610us Notebook, running Windows vista 32bit.
I was working in 3ds max 2011 yesterday, and then my screen began to flicker and go semi-black with horizontal/vertical white lines, and it kept going back and forth until the screen went black altogether.
I restarted it a few times, and most recently the screen appeared for a few seconds, and then it flickered again and kept going black, so I turned it off.
I am not very familiar with PC computers, so I am not sure what is the problem, but I am hoping that someone can understand my issue and give a solution to it! I have read around on various sites that say it may have to do with a backlight bulb issue or something along those lines, but I have no idea if that's what it is.
Also, I connected it to my tv, and the screen shows up on there... so I don't what that means, but hopefully it's not too complicated to fix.
Now, I am thinking it's the screen/display inverter, but I could be wrong. Is the problem that I need a new screen/display inverter, or is it something else?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello everyone, I'm new here, and I want to start by saying I have minimal experience with my computer (I just built it yesterday using a YouTube video to guide me) so when replying with an answer, don't hesitate to ask obvious questions.

I built my gaming computer yesterday, and it turned on, I installed Windows 10, and everything was working fine. However just a while ago, I took out one of the smaller cables that goes into the CD drive (not the one that supplies power, but the other one) and connected it to my hard drive, because I only had two of those cables and one was going into my SSD. I wanted my computer to detect both hard drives, so I went into the BIOS, and I saw that it acknowledged both hard drives, and then I clicked save and reset. Unfortunately, the new problem is, my monitor won't display anything. It was working 100% fine, and all I did was change the smaller cable from the CD drive to the hard drive, and now my monitor won't display. The cables going into the SSD and the HDD are both connected into the SATA ports on my motherboard, and they both are also connected to my power supply. I have checked to see if it was the monitor by some unlucky chance, and it is working fine (I plugged it into another computer, using the same power outlets, so it's not the outlets either). My computer turns on, and I hear no beeps or anything, and my screen does not display "no input" or anything like that, it simply has a black screen, the monitor is on, and c... Read more

Moved wires around put different psu in nothing, put it back to normal it started right up powered screen up I got into windows but it had a lot of lag so I went to restart it so I could do a fresh install and screen shut off... note when it wasn't working before this point the cpu fan ran at full rpm when turned on but slowed down when it worked this first time. I turned it on and off cple times nothing unplugged psuand back in it worked enough to reinstall windows and went to restart nothing. When plugged my speakers in to see if it beeps it started up!

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.

Hi all,

My faithful desktop of 2 years has started pushing up daisies:
I was playing GTA5 when the monitor lost connection to the computer and I had to restart. When I started back up, the message that appears after a bluescreen popped up. This started happening more and more frequently, whenever I started any game, then sometimes when I'd just have Firefox open, then about half the time I tried to start up the computer it'd happen at the login screen.

I did a Malwarebytes scan a few days before this started happening and it turned up clean, and I haven't changed the hardware in 2 years. I tried updating my video card drivers, to no avail.

The weird thing is how inconistent it is--I was able to play GTA for several hours last night, then it happened again. Sometimes it automatically restarts, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the power light flashes. Sometimes it makes me go through Startup Repair (which never finds anything).

I have no idea what could be causing this. BlueScreenView says it's a graphics driver about half the time, but not all the time. Memtest86 said the RAM was fine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I can post SysInfo results and the minidump files if they'd help; I'm on my laptop right now because the system in question is really unreliable.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Hey guys,

So I have an LCD monitor that's decently old (4+ years, but only 2.5 years of use). Whenever I turn it on, it works for a decent amount of time, sometimes up to 45 minutes to an hour. However, after that time, the screen will just turn black. My computer will still be running normally, I just can't see anything on my monitor. The LED on the monitor is still green.

If I turn off my monitor and turn it back on, it will work for X amount of time. X depends solely on how long I leave the monitor off for. If I turn it off for 10 seconds and turn it back on, the monitor will work for about 2 seconds. If I turn it off for a whole night, it'll work for about 45 minutes again.

Other monitors have worked with my video card, albeit they were DVI and not VGA (which is what my current monitor is).

So what is the problem? Is it because my monitor is too old? Is it fixable? Thanks.

Jeremy

Hello! I recently dropped my desktop (I'm soo clumsy) on the floor. It's a dell vostro 400 with 4gb ram, intel 2 duo core, and nvidia 8600GT. I know it's not a power issue. The first time i turned it on after the accident, it beeped continously. Everytime i turned it on, all of the fans start up, my monitor recieves a signal from my graphic card but goes to power save mode, and it doesn't load the bios or the start up screen... what ever it's called. Any way of fixxing this or is it dead? I think it's the motherboard that's as far as i can tell.

EDIT: the graphics card works properly. It fell while it was on; I had to hold the power button to turn it off since it froze.

You moved and dropped the computer while it was on??? Not good. Open the case WITH THE COMPUTER UNPLUGGED and reseat the memory, and the graphics card. Check the CPU heatsink/ fan to make sure it is still tight and positioned properly. Also, check for any loose cables

Hello out there.

I recently bought a brand new computer as well as a new Monitor (Asus VN247H)

Yesterday while playing CS:GO, my screen suddenly turned gray for 2 seconds, then blue for about 5 seconds, then it turned black/looked like the screen was turned off for about 5 seconds as well. After the 5 seconds the screen worked again and I could continue playing. This happened two times to me last night.

Today when I turned on my computer, it did not boot, the screen turned blue (like yesterday,but this time it was only blue, not gray or black) and it was stuck with the blue screen. No cursor, nothing but the blue. I could not do anything, so I turned off my computer by holding down the power button. After 10 seconds i turned on my computer. This time it turned on almost properly, this time it went black with blue figures for like 2 seconds, but afterwards it booted as it should. This time i opened World Of Warcraft. After 15 minutes of gaming, the screen suddenly turned blue again for 5 seconds, then black for 5-10 seconds, and after that it worked again, although some of my "spells" were missing? Similar to what happened while I played CS:GO yesterday.

I put my computer into power save mode and then it locked up, so I forced shut down. Now, when i turn it on, everything seems to be working fine, but the screen stays black and two lights flash in sync - one by the capslock key, and the other up by the end/sys rq and pg up/pause buttons. What do I do to get it out of this??? - HP g61 laptop- Windows 7 home prem

I'm stumped! About a month ago my windows file manager (both Xplorer2 and Windows Explorer which both worked perfectly for years) started malfunctioning when I right-click my mouse on a displayed executable (.exe) program icon.

The rotating 'Busy' icon appears for a few seconds and then the screen turns black. A few seconds later all the desktop icons begin reappearing but I appear to have exited the file manager.

So far I've tried:

1. Anti-Virus scans. (AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes, MS Security Essentials, etc.)
2. Replacing IE9 with IE8. (Windows Explorer and IExplorer both use the same source program.)
3. Downloaded and ran HijackThis. (I don't know what to do with the results log.)

None of the above steps helped. Does anybody have any thought on what I should try next? Thanks!

A:Windows Explorer turns screen black and exits

What is HijackThis? I wouldn't trust third-party software unless it was recommended by a expert.

Are you able to upload the results log onto the forums, maybe it will contain some useful information related to the problem.

Thanks,

Harry

Hi all, this is my first time posting into the forum and I would like to apologise if i have made some mistakes  anywhere so please bear with me.The laptop screen turns black after moments of usage and after a few days of using it the problem slowly disappears on its own.After two weeks, I reset my laptop and the problems came back. The screen turns black and all the  activity going on behind stopped instantly. I searched for solutions anywhere and I can't find one, the only thing i can do is holding the power button on and off again. Setting the display to never sleep and turning on screensavers won't solve the problem either. This problem frustrates me very much. Does anyone else have this kind of problem? If so, anyone has any solution regarding this problem? I would appreciate it greatly if there's any solution

A:Lenovo ideapad 700 screen turns black/ hang after ...

I am having this problem with the Edge 2-1580 when running on battery power.  Screen shuts off after 15 - 45 minutes of use and I need to hard reset by holding power button.  Seems like a lot of people with different models are having this problem, but no solutions.  I've tried updating BIOS, drivers, factory resetting, adjusting power settings, all to no avail.  I tried chatting with live support last night and "Chris" had me download the Lenovo Solution Center program and do a hardware scan but of course the scan came back with no problems.  I can't believe with so many people having this problem that Lenovo hasn't come out with a solution.  Sorry I can't help more, but I hope you find an answer!
