Z50 - 70 - black screen start (démarrage écran noir)

Q: Z50 - 70 - black screen start (démarrage écran noir)

Hello,

I have a problem with my LENOVO Z50-70 processor I7.

State before the problem:
There was a system update just before this problem, if I recall correctly,
I used much less my PC than before (unloading the battery often thoroughly ...)

Symptoms during ignition:
- The LEDs mains and batteries are green on the front edge of the PC,
- The SHIFT keys do not light up,
- the screen remains black,
- there is no beep whatever emitted by the PC,
- the screen remains black,
- Hard Disk seems to be turning,
- the fan of the Graphics Card and the Processor turns a little at startup,

I tried :
- Ignition with or without battery,
- The ignition with or without mains connection (connection and disconnection that emit a powerful beep that I did not have before)
- Once the battery is removed, press the start button momentarily, nothing happens,
- Press the NOVO button momentarily, nothing happens,
- Once the battery is removed, press NOVO, nothing happens,
- interchange RAM cards,

I have not tried yet:
- hard drive-free boot and hard drive testing in an external case,

I heard :
- Replacing the motherboard battery?
- Replacing the motherboard?

What might be the other solutions to my problem? I am currently out of warranty.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Bonjour,

Je rencontre un problme avec mon LENOVO Z50-70 processeur I7.

Etat avant le problme :
Il y a eu une mise jour systme juste avant ce problme, si je me souviens bien,
J'utilisait beaucoup moins mon PC qu'avant (dchargement de la batterie souvent fond...)

Symptomes l'allumage :
- Les leds secteur et batteries sont vertes sur la tranche avant du PC,
- Les touches MAJ NUM ne s'allument pas,
- l'cran reste noir,
- il n'y a aucun bip quelquonque emis par le PC,
- l'cran reste noir,
- le Disque Dur semble tourner,
- le ventilateur de la Carte Graphique et du Processeur tourne un peu au dmarrage,

J'ai essay :
- L'allumage avec ou sans batterie,
- L'allumage avec ou hors branchement secteur (branchement et dbranchement qui emettent d'ailleurs un BIP puissant que je n'avais pas avant)
- Une fois la batterie retire, d'appuyer lomgtemps sur le bouton dmarrer, rien ne se passe,
- D'appuyer lomgtemps sur le bouton NOVO, rien ne se passe,
- Une fois la batterie retire, d'appuyer NOVO, rien ne se passe,
- d'interchanger les cartes de RAM,

Je n'ai pas encore essay :
- le dmarrage sans Disque Dur et essai du disque dur dans un boitier externe,

J'ai entendu parler de :
- Remplacement de la pile de la carte mre ?
- Remplacement de la carte mre ?

Quelles pourraient tre les autres solutions mon problme ? Je suis actuellement hors garantie.

Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Aridro

Hi,

Can someone please help me? I'm a first-time forum user

I've got an Acer Aspire laptop here that has decided to stop loading/starting up.

When I turn the power button on:
- I can see the Acer logo screen (and also get into setup if I press F2)
- The cursor (_) blinks once or twice
- Then the screen just goes black/blank and stays that way

Twice (when I have left power on at the black screen), I have eventually seen this Windows Boot Manager message (maybe after 5 minutes each time):

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
Unfortunately, I do not have the Windows installation disk.

I have tried using a System Repair Disk (on DVD, burnt from another laptop with same OS)....but got stuck when the broken laptop didn't detect or couldn't read the disk.

I also tried the Alt+F10 system recovery, but after 20 minutes on the "Please wait a moment..." screen, I gave up and turned the power off.

Please help. Thanks.

A:Acer won't start, Black screen / Windows failed to start

Hello noob and welcome to Seven Forums.

Can you get into Safe Mode via the Advanced Boot Options menu? If yes, you can check for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two in the SFC tutorial.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

Safe Mode

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Another possibility from Safe Mode is to try rolling back your computer to a date/time prior to this problem occuring using a system restore point.

A:Blue screen & now won't start in safe mode, screen goes black

I'm writing from my husband's laptop because my desktop is completely dead.

We were out of town for several days and when we returned my desktop was running very slow so I attempted to restart it. It locked up, I pressed/held the power button and when it restarted it attempted to run a disk check. The disk check locked up and I had to press/hold the power button again. When it restarted I got a blue screen ~ stop: C0000218 unknown hard error.

Sometimes when I attempt to restart it I get: checking file system on C:
file system = NTFS

When I attempt to restart it in safe mode, safe mode with networking or starting in last known good configuration I get . . .

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\appPatch\drvmain.sdb
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers\ . . . (various items)

Now it won't start, not even in safe mode. Everything I try ~ I just get a black screen.

** I just tried to restart AGAIN and it ran disk scan, said it had completed disk scan and would restart, the screen went black when it attempted to restart and the screen is still black and it won't restart.

What can I do to get my computer back?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

A friend of mine asked me to look at his old XP machine because it simply will not fully startup. It does make it through the initial boot routine and the "Windows XP" splash screen appears but, shortly after that, the screen goes black. All you can see is a black screen with a white cursor in the middle of it. The system does not respond to mouse or keyboard input.

I used a Hiren's Boot CD boot disk to look around his system. He has about 40% free space left on the hard drive which seems to function correctly. I am presently running a virus scan (via the Hiren's Boot CD).

I've never seen an XP machine do this so I'm not sure what is going on. I believe he is running SP3 but I'm not certain of this because I can get it fully loaded to check.

Any help would be appreciated.

Background: A week ago on vacation, I opened my HP Pavilion dv7-2173cl (a laptop running Vista Home Premium SP2) and suddenly, green and black lines began forming across its screen. I was later told this was a pressure crack, although that is not what I'm posting about. Freaked out, that day I turned the computer off and on several times using only the power button, once foolishly interrupting a "Startup Repair" process.

Problem: When I got home I hooked up the laptop to my TV so I could see what was going on. After attempting to turn it on many times, I eventually got the BSOD with a STOP:0x0000c1f5 error. I couldn't access the Recovery Module (even to backup) or Safe Mode. Going into personally uncharted territory, I booted from a Linux System Rescue CD to delete the $TxfLog file that was apparently the cause of the problem. I no longer get the BSOD, I get a black screen (KSOD?) (sometimes w/mouse, sometimes w/o) after the "yellow bar" loading screen. I still can't get into Safe Mode but I was able to use a Vista repair CD I downloaded to (finally) backup onto an external hard drive.

What I've Done So Far: I've run chkdsk, checked the memory and hard disk from BIOS options, and run Startup repair. I did the kind of Windows backup where everything goes to one file.

I'd prefer not to start from scratch if I can avoid it. Thanks so much for any and all help guys, I appreciate it a lot.

Charlie

A:Vista won't start up, black screen before login screen.

I couldn't access the Recovery Module...Do you have a Recovery CD, Windows Vista CD, or Recovery Drive (partition)?What happened when you tried to access it?------------------------------------------------------------You said that you were able to backup onto an external harddrive, so important data is safe.The best option right now would probably be to re-format.

I have an HP laptop with XP Home. The laptop is not booting into Windows. When I try to start it, it goes past the BIOS to a black screen with the safe mode and other start options. It allows me to make choices, but freezes after a choice is made. The laptop is out of warranty, so I would like to try to track down the problem without resorting to their tech support. My first impression is that the hard drive may be the problem as I know several other people with similar HP models who have experienced HD failures within the first year. The laptops of this model seem to run very hot as they have Celeron processors that are not of the M variety. Any suggestions as to where I can start to look for the solution?

IF it locks up no matter what choice you make [like even safe mode, last known good config etc] there's a few things you can do.

1. remove recently added hardware, reboot. fix? if no go to step 2.
2. get your copy of win xp [the cd] out and put it into the cd drive. turn off the computer. turn it back on, and boot to the cd [*****see note below]. while its booting to cd it could take a few mins. once at the setup screen chose R for repair, then on the next screen you hit the 1 for the os choice, then enter, then enter for the password, then you'll have a prompt.. just type chkdsk /r and hit enter. this'll take 45mins to run. when done turn computer off, turn back on.. let boot up if fix great if no then step 3.

Windows 7 used to work just fine on my HP Pavilion zd8000 laptop, until a few weeks ago suddenly it decided to go into black screen mode whenever I start up. The "windows is starting" icon shows, then it goes black... i hear the little jingle, but the screen is still dead. I have tried all the fixes, including setting it back to a previous date, etc. Finally I gave up on all that and reinstalled everything. It worked okay until it finished all the updates, and then the same thing happened again. This sucks. Now its back to Ubuntu for me on my trustee little Toshiba. Windows, I give up!

I have been trying to fix my cousin's netbook for the past couple days. When I first got it they told me that it had a virus so I was thinking I could just run Malwarebytes and maybe a couple other things to fix the problem but when I got it it turned out to be something different.

First off its an Asus eee 1005HAB, from what I have found out it seems to be a recurring problem that eee computers have.

When I hit the power button sometimes they asus logo pops up(but most of the time it doesn't) like its going to start but it goes directly to a black screen with a blinking underscore in the top left corner. I can get to the BIOS but nothing else works. I don't have a back up cd (not that it would work no cd drive on a netbook).

Is there anyway I can fix this problem?
 

A:Black screen at start up.

If there is a Recovery Option then try to recover your lappy. For procedure of how to recover it read its instruction manual or Google it on web by visiting to ASUS site entering the model number. If this doesn't solve your problem and as you said u do not have the backup DVD with yourself....then at last I think you have to reinstall the OS........

A:Black-Screen start-up

Do you hear anything on startup? Any beeps? Does the hard drive spin?

It sounds like it can't find the boot loader for Vista. Do you have the installation CD? If so, you might be able to boot to it. Put it in your CD drive, and open your BIOS (press F2 at startup). Find the option that says something about boot sequence. Set your CD/DVD drive to be the first boot device. Save the settings and restart the computer. It should boot into the installation cd.

Look for an option that says "Repair an installation". You'll want to select that, and open a command prompt. Once in the command prompt, type fixmbr. Let it do it's thing, and restart the system. You'll have to re-enter BIOS and change the boot order again, this time set the first boot device to be the hard drive.

It should boot after that. If it doesn't, do all of the above again, except when in the command prompt, type fixboot and proceed as before.

Hello,I have a Thinkpad P50 running windows 10 pro. I have had my laptop for over a year and suddenly, every time I try to turn on my laptop, I only see a black screen. The only way I can turn it on is if I do a full shutdown and then boot up afterwards. I have looked at many forums and have run the lenovo diagnostics and cannot find a solution. My windows is up to date as well. When I am at the black screen I can close my laptop and open it up again and then the lock screen appears for about 2 seconds or so. I have also tried booting with no battery with only the charger. No luck so far...Thanks for any help in advance

I was using the computer and an update was taking place. I cancelled the update and now when I start up the computer, it goes through the start up process, but when it is done all I get is a black screen nothing comes up. I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Windows Vista and it is extremely important to get this back up and running. It is my husband's business computer. Anyone that can provide any help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank-you
 

A:After Start up all I get is a Black Screen Please Help!

Try a Startup repair as described in this article
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html

If the system stops responding in a similar way during the startup repair, it is a very serious problem, read these articles very carefully

So I wanted to disconnect my Microsoft account from my PC because I didn't that account on that PC and under the 3rd tab on the account preferences page in PC settings there was an account that went by the name of AHS-101[2] (that isn't the exact name of it just as close as I could remember) and i deleted it thinking it was the Microsoft account. I later found the Microsoft account and disconnected it from the PC. I then put the PC in sleep mode. When i attempted to turn it back on it would not display anything. I then proceeded to unplug the the PC entirely. When i tried to reboot the system there was nothing except a but a black screen with a flashing white underscore. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this without loosing any of the files? Thanks for the help for anyone who replies!

I am running XP and for some reason whenever i reset my computer it continously shows a black screen with nothing but "Enter password" on it. I know the password and once I enter it everything works fine but i was curious how might i get rid of it if its possible.

That is probably a BIOS password you have set. Go into BIOS and see if you have set something up by mistake.

Please can someone help me? I am NOT technically minded and so find it hard to sort out problems or even understand the answers (not a good start).

My PC has been running well - until today! I switched on, the PC worked, it booted up normally and got to the 'windows loading' green bar at the bottom. The screen went blank - the monitor did not go 'off' and neither did the PC.

If I turn the monitor off and on, the screen display is all there - windows has started and there's my desktop. Before I can do much with it though everything goes black again. I tried this a few times and the same thing happened. I booted up with my finger on F8 - booting in safe mode is no different - the PC responds as it should but the screen still goes black. By switching the monitor on and off repeatedly I limp forward to the point where I can do a 'windows repair'. This appears to work and I am now using my PC (obviously).

I have no idea if this will happen again - I wondered if some automatic update has clashed with graphics drivers but I don't know what I'm talking about nor what to do with the thought :-)

Please could someone give me a best guess solution in easy speak - I stress - I'm not in the least bit techie - any help most gratefully received - I'm scared to switch off now in case I can't get back here! Thank you.

Cheers
Karen

Hi there,

I am running windows 7 on a Toshiba Equium P300, and am experiencing problems on start up. What I am getting is a black screen without a cursor, just after the Toshiba screen disappears, which then allows me to do nothing. I am able to get to the F2 & F12 screens but struggling from there. I have tried changing the boot priority, but nothing works, just the black screen. F8 does not work, it just bleeps at me when I press it.
Help me please, because I am starting to believe there is nothing I can do.

Started up the PCand it booted to a black screen. I didn't change the configuration in any way, it just happened suddenly.
What it does:
The PC turns on like normal. I get the bios screen. I get the Windows logo screen. Then I get a black screen with a mouse cursor in the middle.
I can move the mouse, but the buttons don't do anything--left or right click. No keys on the keyboard change the screen. Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing. Windows key does nothing. Esc does nothing, etc. At this point the only option is to hold down the power button and turn it off.

I heard its the driver problem but i couldn't find a proper update link to solve this problem.

Does anyone here has any good solution ?

Thank you.

Unsure of computer specs; I know that is a an HP computer.

This is my dad's computer, and he said that while he was watching "videos", the desktop PC popped up a BSOD of the Page_Fault_in_non_paged_area error type. After waiting several minutes to re-power the PC, the computer does not load anything, and the desktop emits out a loud and non-stop "whirring" noise. I decided to check the Ram one by one, and they all (individually and collectively) load up past the screen with F11,etc command options, but go no further when the screen becomes black (with a blinking underscore in the top left and an off-centered orange block). I've attached a picture of this.

My problem is: -I press the power button on my tower; it lights up and the ?hp? logo briefly flashes on the monitor. The monitor goes then blank/black.I press and hold the power button on the tower. The power light goes out, and the monitor THEN indicates ?no signal?, as it should.I repress the power button on the tower, and everything boots up, as it should ? most of the time.Also, I cannot get my tower to wake up from sleep ? I have to force a shutdown, by pressing down and holding the power button on the tower.I am hoping someone out there has a SIMPLE solution. Please note, this is new computer with windows 10 pre installed.

Hello,

I have a Gateway laptop with Vista. Before today it never really caused me any problems and there was no critical warning signs.

My problem is upon starting my computer the screen is black and nothing happens. I can hear the fan running but at a lower volume then usual. The keyboard does not respond at all so pressing F8 or any other commands is useless. The CDrom does respond if I press eject on the side.
There are two things that I did today that I normally never do. First, I ran a disk clean up and I also had a USB "F Drive" SanDisk inserted into my computer because ironically I was seeing if I could use it to back up all my work and notes but I had no success.

After turning off my computer, this problem occurred maybe 20 mins later after I turned it back on. Also, there is no cursor on the screen it just a blacks screen with nothing else on it so it doesnt even look like that my monitor is on. I tried plugging my laptop into another monitor to see if that was the issue but it wasn't.

If I find a recovery disk to use will I be able to recover my work? Any ideas?

Go with starting up with the recovery disk.

Hi, I hope some of you can be of assistance to me.

This morning when I started my laptop I got the always pleasant black screen treatment...

It is an Asus F7SE, about two years old.

The computer starts, fans are running, lights for power and "on" working, the initial sound/beeps and the "ASUS" letters at the very beginning. Then black screen. I get no BIOS Post (info at the start) and Vista is not starting.

Have anyone experienced something similar or have any idea what I can do?

I have looked around on the net but not found anything helpful so far. I am not what you would call a computer expert but have some knowledge at a beginner/intermediate level.

Any helpful answers are much appreciated.
