Gradually escalating failure leads to screen not operating.

Q: Gradually escalating failure leads to screen not operating.

My dual installation of Windows 10 and 7 has worked well enough for three years, but has now calamitously failed to work, to the extent that the monitor is not working.
1. The only fault up until now is that when using Win 7 it has spontaneously restarted very rarely.
2. Last night I put it into sleep as usual.
3. This morning I started it up but noticed that the screen was frozen, a new feature not seen before.
4. After 10 or so seconds it spontaneously restarted.
5. It started to boot but but when it got to " Boot from DVD" it went back to the start of booting again, and kept going round in this manner for 10 minutes.
6. I switched the power off, but when I switched it back on, the computer did not even start the screen up.

Originally I thought it was a software fault, but this seems more like hardware. The power supply is only a year old , and I am thinking motherboard failure. Does anyone have an opinion? Where should I start in diagnosing this problem?

If anyone needs it I can supply a list of the component makers etc, but in order to keep the post short I have omitted to do so.

Thanks in advance for any help, insights given.

Preferred Solution: Gradually escalating failure leads to screen not operating.

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

A: Gradually escalating failure leads to screen not operating.

From what you are saying, you cannot even get to the screen where you choose whether to boot Win 7 or Win 10, is that correct ?

I suspect it is either a boot sector problem on the hard drive, or it is a hard drive mechanical failure. In both cases, it will fail to boot up.

The only solution I could think of is to do a upgrade install of both Win 7 and Win 10 again. Since installing only 1 OS will obliterate the boot sector. Maybe it will detect the existence of the other OS, but maybe not.

If you want to rescue the data first, you can burn a Ubuntu LiveCD. Boot with it, don't install, use it Live, and you can see the contents of the hard drive. Then you can copy off the data to a USB thumb drive.

When I try to download from firefox or from my download managers letmeatit and freemake, the ram usage increases to 90%+ over a period of mere 2-3 hours.. This has been bugging me since some months and I tried searching the internet but to no avail.. My System is protected by Avast and there are NO viruses OR MALWARES OR SPYWARES as I have Malwarebytes installed as well and the reports come out as CLEAN.. I also installed Super Antispyware just to be sure and the results are clean in it as well...

WISE MEMORY OPTIMISER DOES the TRICK FOR ME for a short amount of time but still the problem persists...

As in yesterday when I was downloading a PPV worth 8 GB from the WWE Network through letmeatit, the Ram usage started to fill up and reached 70%, I then downloaded wise memory optimiser in fear and to my surprise after optimising the usage dropped to 56% and the downloading was on without interruption.. So whenever the ram usage increased in 2 hours or so, I ran the optimiser and why wouldn't I as without the optimiser my download wouldnt have even completed and the computer would have froze..and I noticed the KERNEL NON PAGED MEMORY WAS in 1000's in about 13+ hours.. My computer was downloading continuously for 17 hours but I had to run the optimiser every 2 hours to prevent freezing...

Is it anything about the virtual memory :scratchhead: ??? I checked the task manager and resource monitor every hour and the processes and all were normal to my understanding.. :lol:

Here is a video of what happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_W-BM3Vmkk

Whenever I try to game longer than 10 minutes on this rig I JUST built, my PSU starts flickering like a strobe light and then my computer freezes. Sometimes it will display a random color though out the whole screen, or just go black. I have checked all my temperatures when this occurs and they are all well below average. I have ALL the latest drivers/windows updates.

In this case like many others, my screen goes black for a few seconds but then recoveres, only to have terrible FPS (I usually get 80+).

From my research I have found that your power supply has 4 12v+rail at 20 amps each and your video card requires as min. a 24 amp 12v+ rail.

Hey everyone,

About an hour ago I was using my main PC, writing a paper and scrolling through random sites looking for information. I suddenly get a pop-up that says something about Java script, and I see a loading bar. I try not to click on it cause I realize it's something else, but then I get what appears to be a Windows Security pop-up that listed the name of a trojan. The computer proceeded to process very slowly, and then I'm hit with a BSOD. I didn't quite get to see what the error was, but I think it ended in (0x00...)7e or something.

Now it refuses to boot up after multiple restarts. It goes past the ASUS welcome screen, and goes straight to that black screen with the blinking gray bar at the top left. I've waited 20 minutes at the longest and it just stays there.

I'm not much of a computer person, so I'd really appreciate it if any help was simplified somewhat!

Hi everyone

I just helped my boyfriend update his Windows Service Pack 1 (he's using Vista Business 32bit). Along with this update, I also downloaded the latest AVG Internet Security program (paid subscription).

After the updates, everything seemed to work fine, except for the Fujitsu Shock Sensor Utility, which said that there were compatibility issues. According to the Fujitsu FAQ (Support & Downloads - FUJITSU Singapore), I could download a patch to solve this issue.

After downloading the patch, everything was fine and dandy.

But now when I try to start up the laptop, it says Windows Fails to Boot and it goes to a black screen. I tried to do a system restore but it all the restore points are gone. It can't repair automatically and I can't even boot Windows into safe mode (using the F8 button at start-up).

Please help! Even if I have to reinstall everything, is there any way to recover all the files in the hard disk before we do a complete restoration?

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

First of all thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it. I have a really weird issue with my laptop screen. So the screen gradually blackens (please check the attached video). If I apply pressure on some points on the screen it gets normal but then again starts to blacken. There's no specific point as such which brings it back to normal. I just keep pressing it from different points and sometimes it gets back to normal easily sometimes takes a lot of time. Also, once it is back to normal I have to keep some object behind the screen like a book or something so it keeps pressure applied at the back of the laptop screen or else it again starts to blacken. I have literally no idea why this is happening. I would just appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. I want to know what is really causing this issue so I can get it fixed instead of replacing the whole screen because the screen does work fine if not in the blackened state. Any help is really appreciated. Thank you.

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.

Eventually this black screen ca give way to Diagnosing your PC loading screen that loops endlessly

Okay this started after I downloaded the anniversary edition for Windows 10, the first time i booted up the computer i had faced the AVG Watchdog initialization bug which prevented from accessing the laptop for the few weeks as tried looking for solutions forcing me to eventually uninstall AVG through Safe mode (the only way i managed to was through turning it off and on 3 times as every other way including holding F8 had not worked). After booting up the first time without issue after removing AVG and getting some things done, I turned it off without issue then i faced this new problem which is still plaguing me. I've looked up in forums for a solution but the closest i found was just reinstalling windows and losing everything, does anyone have a solution where i can still keep my data?

A:Can't access startup screen, boot up leads to black screen

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 not sure if this is the appropriate forum, if not which one?

The system:
Dell precision M65 2 GB RAM Duo 2327Mhz
Windows xP 5.1.2600 SP3
Symantec firewall and antivirus all updates run when available (windows and virus)

History of the system - no problems.
During a trip, I loaded Ulead software that came with a polaroid camera - it has been loaded successfully on another pc.
Upon returning home the M65 went to the blue screen that said something like "trying to use unexecutable memory.... reboot" during the boot process.
After some trials I found that it would boot in safe mode with command prompt.
Further tests lead me to find it would boot normally when not on the docking port AND not attached to any USB device.
In fact if a USB device was plugged in after the boot sequence it went to the blue screen.
Thinking the Ulead software was the problem I unloaded it (before noting which version) - no change.

? What now? I'd like to backup my data which is what I most often use USB for.

Basically, this is my problem:

A couple weeks ago, I was fooling around with Ubuntu 10.04 and I was trying to install it on my USB Iomega eGo External HD using my Dell Dimension E520 desktop. I told the Ubuntu Installer to not touch my internal C drive on the Dell, but apparently it didn't listen and the C drive is now screwed up.

[Side Note]: Up until now, after the BIOS loaded, I would see a list of options to boot up from, and Windows would be there. All of a sudden last night (I had not manipulated anything), that list no longer appears.

So now, when I boot up it says the following (I put it in a Code box to distinguish between errors and regular text):

Man, I'm going nuts!

I'm trying to install W7x64 onto a custom rig. Parts are a few years old but they're still good, however I'm running into a host of problems. I need some advice as to how to proceed.

Here are the relevant specs of my system....
-MoBo: Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H (also has onboard ATI X1200, which doesn't officially support W7)
-CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6000+
-Video: GeForce 7200GS (PCIe)
-RAM: DDR2 800 2gb x 3chips (total of 6gb)

Here are the problems I'm running into

1) With all of the above hardware installed, W7x64 runs into a BSOD right before it loads. If I remove the GeForce card, Windows will load semi-properly. See item #2
2) With using the MoBo's onboard VC, Windows will load properly, up until the logon screen. At which point the screen is completely white, but I do have control of the mouse. Can't tell if keyboard works.
3) If I boot with the onboard VC and ONLY 1 stick of RAM (2gb, slot doesn't matter, nor does the specific chip), W7 will actually load correctly.

So.... I realize I pretty much have to invest in SOME new hardware. I just want to buy the minimum amount of components so I can run W7x64. Ultimately if I bought a new MB/CPU/VC/RAM I'd be in good shape, but my wallet would be a few hundred $$$ less.

Is my MOBO decent enough so I could just buy a new video card and be done with it (same RAM/MB/CPU)? The system's plenty fast enough (when I was running XP), it's just the headaches with W7 that's causing me to consider new parts... Read more

After this I decided to update the ATI Radion HD 4300 driver.  I asked it to search the internet and went for a coffee.

Hi Everyone,

About a week ago I had trouble with my computer not loading and I posted a topic about it. Nothing was working so I ended up formatting my hard drive and starting over.

It's been working fine for about a week, but then yesterday afternoon after I finished with it and left for class, I can back to start it up only to see that it won't start.

The fading/flashing windows logo shows but then as the bottom progress bar is still loading, the screen turns black.

After a few minutes I get a black screen and my cursor on it.

I've unplugged my external monitor, any USB attachments, but they don't work.

I've also tried running repairs, booting from CD with my Win7 Disk I burned after my fixing my computer last week, but the screen still turns black when it says windows is loading.

I can't even activate safe mode because I still get the black screen with the cursor.
Does anyone have any ideas and can help me? I got this computer a year and a half ago and I've already had trouble starting it up twice this week.

Shaking the mouse, or just waiting for the long time does not work and the computer is stuck between being on and being asleep (I cannot go back to the desktop).

Do you have any idea of how to fix this?

Thank you!

A:Sleep mode leads to being stuck on black screen

Seen a problem like this before what you can do is try this. open services by going to - start - services.msc (in the search bar) - when this opens look for a service called "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" and if it is on disable it and try that.

Hello all
I am running :
XP SP3 Home Version 2002
Dell Dimension 4300
Intel Pentium 4 1.60 GHz
1 GB RAM
I am encountering a BSOD after login , during the loading of desktop. It appears to happen just as the system tray loads. I can supply screen shots of the BSOD, info gleaned from BlueScreenViewer, and Event ID info, also a ComboFix log.
The unusual thing is, I can login using other accounts on the machine, and all the functionality remains. I can make most Administrative changes, and boot in safe made, but the files relating to the "bad" account remain locked. I have tried so many fixes, even going so far as to install another hard drive, and try to access the files from there, but no dice. Can you help?
Patrick

A:Blue screen leads to account and file lockout

Exactly...what happens when you try to access the hard drive when it is a secondary drive?

Please do not post any logs of any type...unless they are requested. Particularly, no malware logs, as malware is not the focus of this particular forum. If you suspect malware, you need to provided more details about why, circumstances that promote such, etc.

Please post the BlueScreen View log/data.

Hi guys, I think this MAY have something to do with me overclocking my CPU a while back, as I initially used a tweaking program, which I soon learned just messes with your CPU so I did it myself in BIOS. Prior to me doing it myself My computer stopped resetting as it should do eaither by hitting the reset button or doing it through XP/Vista. I use both OS so I know this is a hardware issue, ovbiously. If anyone has a fix it for this it would be greatly appreciated. When I do reset it though, everything is still running, hdd is still on, monitor stays on so thats a good indication that nothing has powered off or is resetting.

Basically all I can tell yas.

Thanks

Hi,

I haven?t seen anyone with this specific problem, but apologies if I have missed this.

I believe my laptop has been infected with the ?Virus Remover 2008? virus. I?ve read allot over the last few hours about running anti-virus software, Malwarebyte or manually deleting files, but what I cannot find is my specific problem amongst all the forum?s.

Every time I start the laptop up, I login, get to the desktop, the icons load on screen, they load in the bottom right bar. This is when I get a blue screen, then white lines (looks like barcodes), then the laptop restarts again. There is no time to run any anti-virus software or enter any of the menus (it happens about 10 secs after the last icon is loaded). I?m going round in circles with this one.

Can anyone help with this problem? Much appreciated if you can.

Laptop: Dell Inspirion 1501 with Vista.

Cheers

Hi everyone. Hoping you could help me out.

Yesterday evening I was updating the full version of my antivirus software when I received a blue-screen error message about three-quarters of the way through installation. (This only took up the center of the screen and didn't appear to be the "blue screen o' death" that is often spoken of among the Windows community). I didn't think anything of it until the computer halted my Internet connection and then froze up.

"No problem," I thought. "I'll just do a hard-restart; things like this happen all the time." I flicked off the power switch, then turned it back on and tried to reinstall the updated software again. Same problem.

"That's odd." I brought up the "Windows 7 Action Center" and saw the "System Restore" button located at the bottom, so I tried to restore it to the day before yesterday, when everything was running normally. The restore went through its normal procedure, but then when the computer had rebooted I got this message:

"System Restore did not complete successfully, Your computer's files and settings were not changed.

System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporally disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore.

Greetings.

That copy is installed for about 7 months.
In the past several months it would sometimes get stuck in the win7 screen (first screen after bios) or took several minutes to load. Mostly it loaded fine.
Then recently a new problem emerged - sometimes everything gets stuck for a while then comes back to life (or sometimes doesn`t). Whether in game (wic) or not. Whether the cpu is 100% or not. The sound usually gets stuck with it on an intense noise.
From time to time it got me a blue screen with an error and started scan disk. It also started scan disk sometimes after pressing the `reset` button (when completely stuck).
Today windows didn`t load at all and gave me that screen :

Iv`e tryed to follow the steps but to no avail.
I have a suspect - my WD1000GB HD or connections or the `artificial` SATA drive I have installed it with. This is beacause when stuck I touched the SATA wire and it seemed to help unfreeze. Also it would sometime not detect the HD from BIOS or ask for a proper boot device but usually solved just by restarting.

It`s a Pentium4 3.0, Asus P5RD1-VM, 1024MB DDR2. Windows Ultimate N.

Great thanks for any help,
ZKR

By the way, I run XP on the old HD on the PC and it`s quite fine.
Any suggestions please?

A:Escalating problems until...

I just formatted and installed afresh but - it recognized only 3 of 5 disk drive (all of same HDD).
Before that I resized two of the drives with `EASEUS Partition Master 8.0.1 Home Edition` but I did so for the drives he actually recognized. (I accessed those drives through another OS which is installed on another HDD).
It would see them in disc management but it can`t assign drive letter, it says : Disk Management Console view is not up-to-date
even the program can`t assign letter ot mess with the size.

I am at wit's end. I bought a Lenovo Y50-70 a while back. I'm not going to lie it has been frustrating as the unit was faulty out of the box.After a long fight, the issue is finally resolved. Partserve (They do ALL Lenovo repairs in South Africa) swapped out the Motherboard and replaced the faulty parts. This is where the current issue starts. About two months ago I realized my i7 processor is now an i5. (It was an i7 before sending it in a year ago) I can't get hold of Lenovo South Africa, as they just refer me back to Partserve. Partserve won't assist since I didn't immediately discover the discrepancy. I have been emailing and communicating with Serena from Partserve for almost 2 months now, every second day asking for updates and trying to find a resolution. I understand their concern that I didn't realize the issue immediately, however, the laptop has not been opened once since returning from Partserve so the warranty tamper-proof seals are still in place. This alone should be proof enough that the CPU swop happened at their repair centre.Alternatively, the CPU S/N should be on record and able to verify that it did, in fact, come from their repair centre? If anyone knows how to get the issue escalated please assist. I'm frustrated and don't know where to get help.

You can check your system temperatures with SpeedFan, which should give you an indication of whether your system is running too hot.Also, I would recommend that you open your computer case and make sure all the fans are spinning okay and that there isn't an excessive amount of dust in there that would impede air flow.

Gentlemen/Ladies,

The trouble I'm having is in creating a commission model for an escalating variable plan. I've reviewed the previous examples, and all over the web and can't seem to find something quite like this.

Our company pays commissions throughout the year, at a percentage that increases with your attainment towards your goal.

% of goal, payout
0-80, 2%
80-100, 3%
100-107, 5%
107-115, 8%
115+, 10%

This means that someone who has achieved 110% of their goal would have to be paid out as follows:

Total compensation = the first 80% at 2% (80%*2%)+ the next 20% at 3%, the next 7% at 5%, the remaining 3% at 8%

Please let me know if you can shed any light on this formula for me, I'm in serious need here.

Best,

Dan
