reinstall of win7 causes black screen and not genuine warning

Q: reinstall of win7 causes black screen and not genuine warning

Recently my PC has begun to work painfully slowly (40+mins to get to the desktop from sleep mode). I think it started happening after the power had gone out so i assumed there was some corrupt windows files. Did a sfc scan and it returned no problems. Tried to run startup repair and still no problems so I tried rolling back to a system restore point but then explorer.exe stopped running automatically and i couldnt bring up task manager or anything along those lines. I opened it in safe mode and checked that the shell part had only the value explorer.exe and it was all fine. Gave up and did a fresh reinstall of windows but now it gets just past the Starting Windows screen only to be confronted by a blank black screen with only the mouse. I left it for a couple hours to see if maybe it was still installing but all that happened was a Windows is not genuine tag in the bottom right corner (my copy is genuine). Tried booting in safe mode but i get an error that says that Windows is in the middle of installing and cant be completed in safe mode and that I should restart my computer and allow install to finish. Any suggestions? Could this be a hardware problem? Could the power out have fried something on the inside?

Preferred Solution: reinstall of win7 causes black screen and not genuine warning

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.)

My son's laptop 'died' earlier this week. Screen just went blank. In the end, I decided to rebuild the drive.
After much difficulty, I managed to reinstall the OS (Windows 10) and all seemed well.
Oh, except the reinstall does not provide even WiFi drivers at a minumum - so after figuring that out I had to dig that up too on another computer and transfer/install. Problems over... I thought.
As the XPS went on its way to update drivers - the screen suddenly went blank (hello! haven't we met before?)... made some melodious beeps and chirps as though trying to communicate (it wasn't morse code) and now the computer continues to hum away (the fans?) with that.... black screen.
Before I wipe everything and re-install, again, and perhaps let the machine run with old drivers at the risk of malicious attacks etc (small price to pay for a 'working' computer I suppose), might anyone know of solutions to this problem?
With thanks in advance.
Signed,
Frustrated but Hopeful

A:Dell XPS 13 Black Screen - cause for OS reinstall - happened again after reinstall during driver updates

Hi ASHAROM,
What is the exact system model?
Is there any damage / liquid spillage on the system?
For the beeps, first we need to check if the HW is functional:
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
Drivers: If you are using a retail image of Win 10 OS, it will contain only the OS installation files, since the OS is generic. The hardware on each system would differ and hence, the drivers need to be reinstalled. If you are using a recovery image for your system, then it would contain the required drivers with the OS image.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Black screen saying Windows 7 is not genuine. But it is! I paid for it.
HELP!
 

A:Windows 7 is not genuine black screen

Your comments are too vague.

What's the brand name and model name and model number of your computer, and what Windows version came pre-installed in it?

How and where did you buy Windows 7? Just because you paid for it doesn't mean it's a genuine copy.

If you ONLY get a black screen, and nothing else, then it's not a WGA problem alone - with a simple non-genuine problem hte background goes balck, you get a notification, etc, but you still have full access to your desktop.

You need to repost this question in a more appropriate section (or perhaps one of the moderators would be kind enough to move it?)

Hi addy88, welcome to the forums

Where did you purchase your copy of Windows 7? The behaviour/message you're seeing appears if there has been tampering/changing of the Activation files used to identify Windows. This is commonplace if downloaded from various Torrent sources.

Please read This article describing an update from Windows Update which resolves tampered activation files.






Quote:
There is an update available to the activation and validation components in Windows Activation Technologies for Windows 7.

Windows Activation Technologies helps you confirm that the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer is genuine. Additionally, Windows Activation Technologies helps protect against the risks of counterfeit software. Windows Activation Technologies in Windows 7 consists of activation and validation components that contain anti-piracy features.

Activation is an anti-piracy technology that verifies the product key for the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer. The product key is a 25-character code that is located on the Certificate of Authenticity label or on the proof of license label. These labels are included with each genuine copy of Windows. A genuine product key can only be used on the number of computers that are specified in a software license.

Validation is an online process that enables you to verify that the copy of Windows 7 that is running on your computer is activated correctly and is genuine.

I did a clean boot on my computer a few weeks ago to diagnose a problem (or so I thought) and when I rebooted it, the desktop went black with a message saying that my copy of Windows didn't pass genuine validation. I bought the computer new from a computer store in June 2008, but never received a Windows XP disk with it. (I never thought to ask for one at the time.) I have the 25 digit product key, but Microsoft is asking for $199 to validate my XP copy. I'm sick of seeing this black screen on the desktop. I paid good money for this computer and I thought I was a legal user of XP, since it came installed on my computer when I bought it, but now I'm pissed. When I e-mailed the company's tech support, they told me it wasn't their problem and to contact Microsoft. Ant suggestions to get my computer back to normal? Thanks.

A:Clean Boot - Black Screen - Genuine Validation

If Microsoft is telling you that the key is invalid...and that's the key which came with the system...it seems that you need to work it out with them.

Validation is their business, not ours. You have a license key, they say it's not valid...seems that some discussion should ensue.

In such instances, it might be helpful if you have the details of your expenditure for the system.

My wife was surfing the web using IE, she had two documents open in Word. I had BTD5 [flash game] running in a Opera window for about 8-9 hours, and the game does put a bit of a load on a single core.

After [having the game open] about 5 hours, I changed my power options to Full Power, and it's been customized to be the same as my normal Power Saver, but it will not sleep.

While waiting for a page to load, the screen went black [monitor went into standby] and that was it. Fans were running full tilt. I checked the batteries of the mouse & kb, and they were good, but the computer would not respond. I had to hold the power button to reboot.

I DL'd and am currently running MemTest86+ to see if it's a stick gone bad, but no clue as to the cause. I haven't had a BSOD since I last played with overclocking. NO BSODs otherwise.

When the machine runs for a week, it seems to get more and more unstable, programs crash and such, but not the entire system.

Advice?

A:Black screen. No warning. No BSOD.

About a month ago, my desktop started suddenly shutting down. I can be in the middle of typing, and the display will shut off. Sometimes it is like it is going to sleep, and will resume if I wait until all fans and everything stop before pressing another key. Other times the screen will go black and the fans still run, but the only way to recover it to do a hard reset.

Sometimes it will do it several times in a day, then I can go several days without issues. I can be doing anything - web browsing with IE11 or Chrome, using Office 2013 (usually Word or Excel), or gaming. About the only consistent thing I have noticed is I have to be doing something; it does not do it on its own when no one is at the keyboard. That makes me suspect possibly a hardware issue, especially RAM or GPU. I ran the Windows memory test on reboot, and no issues were reported.

I have checked and rechecked power settings. I don't use a screensaver, the monitor is set to shut off after 20 minutes of inactivity, and the hard drives are to never shut off.

A:Black screen/shutdown without warning

What I'd do in that situation is just troubleshoot the hardware I think might be faulty. Remove one of the RAM sticks and test the pc one stick at a time. Remove the GPU and use your mobo's graphics processor. You checked your HDDs for SMART issues?
When your screen goes black, does the pc reboot or just hang? and if it hangs, does the audio keep playing?

Sounds like a GPU problem to me, but I might be wrong. Probably not a software issue, and I usually trust MBAM when it says there are no issues.

My little brother's computer is apparently overrun now with Spyware of some sort that is beyond my expertise.

His desktop background has changed to a black screen that reads:

"Warning! Spyware Threat has been detected on your PC

Your computer has several fatal errors due to spyware activity
Your IP is _________ and via this address an unauthorized access was gained by another computer. It is strongly recommended to install an antispyware software to close all security vulnerabilities"

I had a post up here a while back that never got addressed. I figure it got over looked or it did not seem to be what I thought it was. I am posting this problem here now because of that prior incident which had somethign to do with IE and how the machine was jumpy and runniong funny even after the MS fix for IE.
The computer crashed with no warning to a black screen. It was still running as best I could tell. After it did nothing with ctr/a;t/delete I tried to shut it down by holding the power button. No effect. I hooked up a regular monitor, no luck. I use it with battery in and the cord hooked up so I removed the battery (IDK Why that occurred to me) When I opened the lid there was the desktop but it was all large like it was safe mode but it wasn't safe mode. I put that battery back in and the screen was gone. ???? I tried again to force it to shut down by taking the battery out and unplugging it. I got nothing after I plugged it back in and put the battery back in. I left it alone for a couple of hours with the monitor plugged into it. I just came back to it and it started up my desktop is on the monitor not the Laptop and I am in safe mode with networking.

A week ago my wife used an external drive from my sons preschool to load some educational program and the screen wacked out with weird colors and then went black and the words "input not supported" came on the screen. since then the computer screen just goes black when it begins to start up. Started in safe mode and tried to revert to a old configuration a few days b4 with no luck. I tried to remove the installed software in safemode but couldn't software installer was not accessible I guess. I tried to reinstall xp and it spends a few minutes on the installing page and then the screen goes black but comp is still on. Any ideas? Sorry for my incorrect terminology usage! And thanks ahead of time.

A:not able to reinstall xp black screen

Normally a message like that on your monitor indicates that the program was trying to force either an unsupported resolution or an unsupported refresh rate on the monitor.

You need to go back into safe mode, go to your display properties and make sure a resolution is selected that you know normally works. Then you need to go to your advanced button from that menu, head over to monitor and make sure a refresh rate is selected that you know your monitor supports. Check the "hide modes not supported" so you can't mess that up.

If that doesn't work, then you need to tell us what program you installed, make and model of the monitor and post a DxDiag in your next post, which you can easily google to find out how to do. (It's simple) With that information we can give you more possibilities.

Hi Everyone,
 
So I have been trying to fix a friends Toshiba laptop.  It was loading windows then bringing up a screen that said check media fail.. no bootable device.  Toshiba sent a USB drive to re-install windows (I believe it was 8) and I have it set to boot from the usb, etc and it loads the windows screen then just goes to a dark gray/black screen.  I have tried a couple different things in the BIOS setup, but no luck.  Any suggestions?

A:Windows black screen during reinstall

Have you tried resetting the UEFI/BIOS to default values?
Have you tried loading it from another USB port (one on the other side of the computer).  I had problems with a Toshiba laptop at work and the "fix" was to try it on the other side.
Have you tested the hard drive?

A:Black screen after reinstall, no cursor, need help please.

The hard drive may be faulty -- all hard drives will fail sooner or later.
You can test the hard drive with the drive manufacturer's own diagnostic software which doesn't need Windows. You download the DOS version on a working PC & make a bootable CD from it. Then boot the faulty PC from that CD and run the test.

The links for each drive manufacturer's testing software are here;
Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

If you don't know what make the hard drive is, you can use Seagate SeaTools for DOS which can be used to test any make of hard drive.
Get it from here: | Seagate
Make sure you download the DOS version, not the Windows version.

Hi,
I wonder if any can help. My girlfriend has had Vista 32-bit SP2 on her HP Pavilion DV6000 for many years and a couple of weeks ago it crashed after an AVG Update or HP Sound Driver Update. From then on a black screen with cursor would come up after the Windows Logo Flash.
Over the course of the last weeks I have tried many solutions and done lots of research with nothing solving the problem. I have tried memory scans, chkdsk, automatic repair, trying to find a system restore point and reconfiguring the bootloader to name just a few.
In the end I have obtained a Vista CD and resorted to an installing a fresh version on the hardrive which has retained the Windows.old folder with all the files within it. This version now works and I using the laptop to type this.
My question is whether it is possible to copy the files from the windows.old folder to the new installation of windows so as to maintain the old structure i.e. desktop icons, browsers with bookmarks etc? Also, is it possible to reverse the installation process so as to maybe fix the initial problem?
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks.

Hi
Today I did a repair/reinstall of Windows XP - had been having all sorts of little glitches etc - all good except for playing mpeg files on Cyberlink Power DVD. All my collected clips used to play properly before the repair - all were set to play using power DVD in properties. Now they start up, flicker the image and then the window turns black - audio is fine. I suppose it's a codec related issue - but which one is now missing that I had before? Last time I had a codec issue I downloaded and installed K-Lite but that was a disaster - nearly nothing played until I removed K-Lite. I have DivX installed and Xvid, I have Adobe Premiere Elelments which comes with a swag of codecs.
I have just upgraded Windows Media Player to version 11 (after it reverted to 10 after reinstall) but did not make it the default for mpegs.

Windows Media Player plays the clips properly btw

Any ideas folks?

Hi,
 
My fairly new computer has been acting up lately.
 
It doesn't have great anti virus or malware protection (only running a McAfee LiveSafe subscription).  Startup and general running has always been somewhat slow.
 
Today a few issues started that I cannot solve on my own.  This laptop is running Windows 10.
 
1)  Start menu icon wouldn't open
2)  Wifi connection was connected, but I couldn't toggle between different connections (click the icon, nothing happens).
3)  Google Chrome stopped working, displaying a black screen for all websites
4)  I uninstalled Chrome and now it won't reinstall - I'm getting an error code 0xa0430721
 
Probably a good time to run some logs to see if there is anything malicious on this system.
 
Thanks for your help!  You guys helped me clean up a laptop with a nasty virus a few years back.  Hope it's not as serious this time.

Hello,   I am somewhat ignorant when it comes to anything beyond computer basics.
 
I have a Lenovo H420 Desktop, with Windows 7 home version - 64 bit, 1 Tb HD, 8 GB Ram.
 
Last week I found out from my ISP that my e-mail account had been hacked and was being used to send out spam e-mails.  I ran my AVG security program and it found nothing.  I restarted my computer and now all I get is a blank black screen with an active curser.  The numlock and caplock keys still work, I have left the computer on overnight in case it was a slow start up but that did nothing.
 
I have tried using my recover disks that came with my computer ...they run through the recovery but it changes nothing.  I tried running malwarebytes from the dvd drive...it found nothing. 
 
I have all my important data backed up to an external storage drive so at this point I think I want to re-format the HD and reinstall Windows 7.
 
I have no idea how to do that.  Windows 7 came installed on my computer and I cannot find a product key anywhere on the tower or with the paperwork that came with the computer.
 
What would be my best avenue to format and re-install windows under these circumstances?   Or is there a chance that I could fix the problem with out formatting?
 
I am able to bring up the command prompt in safe mode.
 
Thank you very much to anyone who has the time and expertise to help...it would be greatly appreciated... Read more

I'm having a problem with my Dell desktop computer locking up and the monitor displaying rows of 99's across the screen. I have to "CTRL + Alt + Del" to reboot. Sometimes it will reboot normally, other times it will go back to the 99's screen. I have gone into CMOS after this happens and CMOS doesn't recognize my C drive hard drive, making me believe my C drive hard drive is failing. If I leave the computer off for several minutes, I can boot normally. Any thoughts, ideas????

You have a stuck key on your keyboard. Turn the keyboard over, and shake it, then blow it out with a can of compressed air to remove any food particles and or dust.
Try a different Keyboard.
Boot into Setup by pressing F2 (CMOS)
Under System Information, it should list your HDD. If not, then shut down, open the case and make sure the Data and the Power Plug are plugged in firmly to the back of the HDD. Make sure the Data cable is plugged in firmly to the Motherboard. Take note of which SATA port by the markings on the board,that the Data cable is plugged into. Boot back into Setup (Bios) and make sure that the SATA port on the motherboard is Enabled. Save and Exit.
If you still have problems, try replacing the Data cable, try a different power plug from the PSU, try a different SATA port on the Motherboard.
You can also restart the computer and press F12 at bootup and run the Dell Diagnostics.

Ok so i read all the threads on here about this problem. When i start up my pc, It just goes to a black screen with the moues and sit's there. Or it will start to load my desktop but then just freeze or sit there and look like its loading..

Now i did the F8 method and did the repair computer.. It wiped out everything and installed it back to factory defaults. I then started to re-install some programs i.e firefox and anti-virus malwares byes. But when i went to restart the computer it started doing it again... Is this a bad virus attack? I don't know what to do anymore. Is the Mobo Dieing out on me? Its a fairly new laptop no less than 2-3 months ago. Bought it brand new.

Hi Folks
I reformatted my hd (after malware problems) reinstalled a new copy of xp a couple of weeks ago and everything went ok...all drivers, firefox, firewall (Comodo) and antivirus up and running. The generic windows graphics driver works but slows the system down incredibly.

I have nvivia 9600gt agp graphics card but have been unable to install a driver which will allow the system to boot. It worked fine before the xp reinstall. At one point I got a Tweakforce (175 series I think) to install but this crashed after a few days and will not reinstall. I have tried the latest drivers from nvidea and get the blue screen or black screen. Same with installing older drivers. I keep having to go back to system restore, which takes an hour or so to try and fail again with a different driver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Video card black or blues screen of death after xp reinstall

You may need to install a BIOS upgrade for your graphic card so it is insynch with the newest drivers.

Good luck.
