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.

When opened fully (at right angle) the screen is blank. I can initially see a very dim Thinkpad logo on boot but nothing else, no BIOS, grub or luks screens. Also during this time the bluetooth LED on the inverter is on. The thinklight still works as does external display: If I move the screen down towards the keyboard the display comes on and I can see the screen as normal and other inverter lights come on such as the battery light.WHILE DISPLAY IS DOWN IN KEYBOARD   PLEASE ANY ONE SUGGENST ME WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Initially my system got crashed while running and when it was recovering in the blue screen, I instead of letting it complete the recovery , hard booted my system by pressing power button for few seconds. After which when I started my system, I am constantly getting Blank screen on my laptop, even tried to start my system in Bios but no help, tried pressing various function keys at startup of windows like F2, F9, F10, F11 and also tried Esc key. All the time getting blank screen only. Even tried to remove any external usb and remove power cord and then battery. After pressing power button for few seconds, putting battery  and power cord back, still no use. Even tried removing the RAM and putting back. Also tried connecting to external monitor to check if there is any issue with laptop screen, didn't worked. I understand its probably an hardware issue, but I want to try to fix the issue myself instead of taking to service shop. Would really appreciate any sort of help regarding my issue, I have already went through numerous blogs but no help.

Please see the picture below. This error happens randomly when I close my lid, and/or move my laptop fast from one place to the other. I get either the error screen below or a blank screen. Both the error screen below and blank screen require me to hold the power button down and reboot my W530.
 
Has anyone ever experienced this error? What is the cause of this issue? Does anyone know of a fix that won't void my warrantee?

Looks like a loose/damaged connection between the display and the laptop. no way to fix it without opening the laptop. Which warranty do you have? if you have the on-site, they send a tech or parts out to fix it.

I have here my Mother in Laws C670-14D and its developed an issue whereby when you power up the screen is blank. it does have backlight and you hear the windows startup sound that you get before you login as windows starts up.

I can see the screen if I start in safe mode, in fact I'm using the PC in safe mode as I type this.

I did hae a similar problem in the past with another Toshiba laptop and that was windows 8, the issue was connected with power save settings but I've tried all of those and no luck. Also tried the remove battery suggestions, nothing has worked.

I'm guessing windows has done an update that is causing this but I'm at a loss and google has turned up nothing.

Running Windows 10 Home edition 64 bit

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

I have an Acer AspireOne D150-1322. When the netbook is open less than 45 degrees I can view and work on the computer, but if I open it greater than that the screen starts flashing Grey, White, Red, Green, Blue, and other colors like it's during a screen test.

When I lower the screen to less than 45 degrees it is ok again. If I connect an external monitor to it, the display on the external monitor is fine if I open the netbook all the way, but still flashes different colors on the netbook.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks.
 

A:Netbook Screen Not Working When Fully Open

My initial thoughts would be a dodgy connection somewhere. How old is the machine, is it still under warranty at all?

If not, you could always take the screen casing off and check the connections to the screen / inverter board. They are normally just plug in type cables and may have become loose.

HP Pavilion G6 shows Black Screen on start up; have tried all the HP recommended work-arounds to no avail.

A:HP Pavilion g6 w/blank screen

Hook up the laptop to an external monitor. If that works then the LCD screen has failed, and needs to be replaced. If you get nothing with the monitor, but the computer sounds like it is booting up, then the video chip on the motherboard has failed and you will need to replace the motherboard.

Hi
was the screen replaced with the correct make and model...?

Did you change the inverter over from the old board or did it come with one, (inverter: a small board usually across the bottom of the screen)

when you fitted the board did you make sure you seated all the conenctions properly..

I unplugged the power cord while my laptop was still on. It continued to run. I left it for a few hours and forgot that it was unplugged. When I came back it would not boot up and the screen remains completely dark. It just beeps for a total of ten times in what sound like five groups of two closer beeps. The light on the caps lock button also flashed with the same pattern.So far I have done a hard reset, reseated the two RAM cards and pulled the RAM cards out one by one and trying to start it with one card out or swapping them. The symptoms remain the same.I found a page that said two blinks or beeps mean there's a problem with the BIOS.Any help or suggestions?! Thanks!

Anyways, bacl to the laptop, whenever i turn it on the screen does that little dim light where you can tell the screen has power, then shows the HP logo. once the HP logo is gone, it goes right back to that dim lit screen and stays like that.

ive tryed waiting it out but after about 4 hours it still did that screen problem. the solution of taking out the battery and holding the power button did not work for it eathier, i tryed it multiple times. also pressing f8 or f11 at start up does not show up with anything.

I do not care about any files or programs on this computer, i just want it to work normally, i am probably going to end up selling it anyway so dont worry about trying to save my files while fixing it

thanks to anyone who can help me, this is really annoying me.

Recently, when I start my computer, the Asrock splash screen appears, followed by the pulsating windows logo. Once this is done, it moves on to a black screen with only the cursor visible. The cursor is movable but no key commands seem to do anything. Eventually the desktop appears but it can take up to two minutes and seems to be getting longer every time. I was also looking at my event log and found this entry: "The Religious Religion service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified." I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject but "The Religious Religion service" sounds a lot like a virus. I'm not sure if these two things are connected, and an AV scan has turned up negative. Thanks for any help.

Hardware Dell AMD desktop, 3 GB ram, pre-loaded from dell with Vista, SP 2 is installed.

Initial problem: Windows screen went black, Icons still show and was able to open IE. It was not full function, lost fav and it did not remember me when I went to know sites that use to have my data. Also in the lower right hand corner of the black screen it said I was not running a genuin copy of windows vista.

It would not allow me to do a restore in normal mode. Booted in safe mode and was able to restore to a previous date.

When I booted back up in normal mode all looked fine, went to start IE and it comes up with a white screen for about 3 seconds then just closes back down. Can start IE from safe mode but it still has limited function.

MCafee anti-virus is current
Installed Malwarebytes while in safe mode, ran it and it found 3 problems, deleted the files but the problem still exists. Can not tell you which MB fixed, I did not write them down.

Should I try downloading IE 8 while in safe mode, install it and then re-boot in normal mode?

Any help wouldbe appreciated.

When pressing the power button it makes a quiet start up sound and the only indication that it is working is the tiny flashing light on the "Caps Lock" button on the left hand side of the keyboard. The system does not load and the screen is blank.The laptop arrived new only a couple of days ago, and worked fine for over 24 hours.To help me get used to using a laptop I used a wireless mouse via a small USB which went into the port on the right hand side.What appears to have happened is the AA battery in the mouse expired which caused the screen to freeze. I then removed the USB and attempted to carry on by using the touchpad, but nothing seemed to work. I replaced the mouse battery but this did not rectify the situation.With no other option I switched the power off by holding down the power button, but since then I have not been able to start up......I can hear the laptop by putting my ear very close......but the screen is blank.Do I need to send this product back...Can anyone help..?Alan

I'm having a problem with my computer. It's a dell laptop running Windows XP. This problem just started very recently, the only thing I can think of that might have done it is either installing my new printer or installing Lord of the rings online, those are the only things I've installed around the time I noticed this problem started.

Anyway, the problem is, when I start up my computer, it shows the windows Welcome screen, then just shows the mouse cursor against a blank background. No taskbar, no nothing. I've figured out a way to get around this somehow, by opening the task manager and ending explorer.exe, then logging off my user and logging back on when I get to the login screen. After all that, everything seems fine, but I just can't figure out why it's doing that in the first place or how to fix it.

I would greatly appreciate any help or insight into solving the problem, thanks.

I have had this computer for the past 10 months and i upgraded it to Windows 10 shortly after I purchased it. Now, there's been some problems which are not so big, like the headphone jack not working anymore, but I can kinda live with that. Las night, my computer crashed and wouldnt turn on. When I switched it on, the power button and wifi were the only lights on and the screen was blank. I forced shut down and turned on a couple of times before leaving it on for about an hour. An hour later, I forced it shut down and turned it on and then it worked! I was happy and decided to shut it down and turn it on again tomorrow to use. Today, I can' t turn it on at all. The same lights are on and the fan is running but the screen is blank. I've tried removing battery, AC adaptor, hard reset but it all doesn't work.I'm not living in the area I purchased it from so I wont be able to send it for warranty until a month from now when I go back. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

This did not qualify as a BSoD but I managed to lose all of my tiles from the Start Screen, and since my background was blue, well, it was like a time warp.

Anyway, after installing Google Chrome and making it my default browser, I looked on the Start Screen and could not find a Chrome tile. The All Apps screen did have one and when I right clicked it, it indicated that it was on the Start Screen as it had the "Unpin from Start" icon. After trying various methods of getting it to show up, I did unpin it, which also removed it from the All Apps screen of course, then did a search for Chrome, started Chrome and then closed Chrome. When I then tried to go back to the Start Screen to see if there was a Chrome tile, I was greeted by a totally empty screen. I rebooted Win 8 and everything came back normal (I hope) but now with a Chrome tile.

Anyone have insight on what might have occurred?

Microsoft windows XP version 2002 service pack 3
Browser 8, virus protection-Bitdefender.

I have been able to get the page up after hitting Control,Alt, Delete and this shows zero action on the CPU.
After about 30 mins the system gets going and starts up.I have at this point had a message to say that the firewall protection is switched off. Does this sound like some kind of contention between programs I am running or,perhaps a virus lurking somewhere.
At present the system is running normally and next time I switch on it may be fine.If it is a hardware prob I will probably junk the machine as it is getting a bit past it now.
many thanks
Sandybay

it all started when someone gave me a virus on msn since then my computer has seemed to gone from bad to worse. Its got to the point when i turn on my computer it loads up but when it comes to the bright blue log on screen, instead it goes blank and freezes, sometimes it even says no input signal. Then i have no choice but to turn my computer off by the mains and then start it back up where i get the option to go on safe mode and then it works. However this isnt right there must be something wrong with my normal mode. Has anyone got any ideas how to fix this problem ? i cannot get onto the normal mode at all!

When I start my computer, it will start to load, the windows logo appears, and then it screen goes black.  I'm able to move the cursor but can't do anything else.  I am able to start in safe mode just fine.  I updated the graphic driver but didn't seem to help.  Any other suggestions to get windows to start?
