Preferred Solution: computer restarts after or while loading desktop black screen

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.)

Hi, I've had this problem for quite a long time now but thought I could let it slide off as an nvidia driver related problem and after some tests yesterday it seems it's something else.

Symptoms include either restarting immediately as the desktop taskbar items start to load or freezing after almost everything loaded and the hard drive light remains on.

The pattern I've noticed consists of a guaranteed reboot at the desktop if the computer is started after a shutdown, or after a BIOS save and exit or after a hard manual restart. Otherwise a normal restart shows no problems. Sometimes this problem at the desktop startup would happen after maybe 4 normal restarts, and the freezing may happen 1 in 8 restarts.

In safe mode this problem doesn't appear to happen. Got rid of any unnecessary startup items. I also don't get any error logs, no BSOD, tried turning Automatic Restart off, that didn't help either. Just continues to restart upon loading the desktop at the given times I've mentioned. This doesn't seem to be the same as most people's problems as I don't even have an error log to work with. Any help or info will be appreciated, thanks

Hi all, I have 2 hard disks, 80 Gb and 500 gb which are both compatible with the rest of the computer.

The OS was initially installed in the 80GB drive and was working fine till I got a message on startup saying it had failed the S.M.A.R.T test and crash was imminent. So I loaded XP onto the the 500GB disk and removed the 80GB disk. Everything was working fine except on start up I was given two OS to boot from, the second one now obsolete since the disk was removed.

So I entered the System Configuration Utility and using the "Check All Boot Paths", (made a system restore point before this) deleted the option that no longer was in use and rebooted the system. Except that upon loading desktop it rebooted within a minute.
I tried restoring using system restore but the same problem continued. So I tried repairing my installation using the Windows XP CD. After it did a repair, and upon boot and installing in place of the 'Welcome' screen, the screen turns black. However I have control over the mouse pointer. But Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Ctrl-Esc or right click, nothing of this sort works. Even booting in safe mode leads to the same result, except the black screen has 'Safe Mode' written in the corners.
Kindly advise.
 

A:Windows XP welcome screen black, not loading desktop.

First pull out the 80 gig hard drive, and see if it boots with just the 500gb drive by itself, If not, Insert the windows CD, reboot press a button to boot from CD. Skip the first repair option the next time it talks about repair do that one. You should see two partitions, a big one and a smaller one, select the larger of them to repair. The computer will fix the os and then reboot this time do not press the any key and just let it boot. I think what you may have happened is you had an backup windows on the 500gig, and pointed the boot to boot that os. Also if you have a damaged Hard drive, and even if you are not booting from it, having the corrupt or laggy hd will lead to boot issues,

A:Windows XP welcome screen black, not loading desktop.

It sounds like your system is already set to boot from CD. Perhaps you should try reinstalling Windows on the new drive. That way your MSCONFIG issues would be settled, the OS would now recognize your new configuration, and it sounds like you might have a video issue although it could just be a corrupt install. I'd suggest trying a reinstall of XP.

Good day.

Hi

Suddenly having serious problems with my computer.

Has been working fine for months but when I turned it on yesterday I started having problems.

The problem is that the computer starts to boot up fine, but when it reaches the Windows Loading screen it restarts the whole process of booting up again. This loop continues and does not stop.

Have tried starting the PC in safe more and all the other different modes but it doesnt make a difference.

Have also tried changing the boot order of the drives, no difference.

Unfortunatly I do not own a CD to re-boot or re-install the OS as the computer was passed onto my from a relative. They dont have the CD either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have alot of photos and documents on the PC that I would like to get back!

Help!

It started up like normal... then it went into the windows "has not shutdown properly" screen. So i chose "Start Windows normally" I get to the Windows loading screen. After that it restarts. Is this hardware conflict or just a plain virus? Any way to fix this? It does the same thing with every other option on that screen. And it will never get past the Windows Loading screen...

Hi everyone. Okay, as the title says, I cannot get my computer past the Windows loading screen.I tried in safe mode, taking out one stick of RAM, switching the sticks around, anything I thought would work and nothing.I had recently gotten rid completely of AntivirusPro 2009 and could finally download AVG.After downloading it, I did a full scan and it found roughly 6 viruses.The one virus that I thought was odd was winlogon.exe, obviously you can't delete that and I'm pretty sure AVG has no access to delete that either.But anyways, after all that happened, I had to restart my computer as AVG instructed, thus starting the endless cycle of restarting after the windows loading screen.If you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know.

A:after windows xp loading screen computer restarts!!

This is what we refer to as the blue screen of death unfortuinately that usually means something bad. First off try booting to the xp cd and doing repair and when you log into the windows it asks for usually number one iwth a blank admin password at the command prompt type chkdsk /r and run that until it says no errors and then try to boot again. If that doesnt work let me know and we can try other things.

Hi there,
For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

MSI Z87 - G43 Gaming Motherboard with latest BIOS
Sapphire TriX R9 290 OC
Samsung 250GB 840 EVO

I'm having a rather odd problem that is driving me nuts trying to figure it out, my best guess is it's something to do with the display drivers or some other driver that is loading during start-up. Here's the issue, I wake up in the morning and turn my PC on, the splash screen comes up for my motherboard, windows boots up just fine, next the welcome screen..all is good up until that point. As soon as I get to the desktop I get these weird horizontal static lines...it's hard to describe, the lines don't go all the way across the screen, they just sort of appear randomly, but they mainly are to the right of the screen ( when viewing it ).

While this is going on I sometimes get a random black screen that last for a second or two, then when the desktop is done loading everything all is fine again, no static, no black screens.

Go to ATI and look up drivers for your graphics card. download and install then reboot. If you still have the same issues. Take out the card and clean it with a can of compressed air then reseat the card. Also check your cable DVI, VGA, cable make sure it is seated correctly and there is no bent pins.

Welcome to TSF....

Give this a try:

If you have a Full Operating System on CD then you can try this:

1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER (if none was set, leave it blank and press ENTER).
7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:

I have been googling this issue all day but I do not know what to do.

Originally I presumed my power supply might be at fault since it seemed to be making lots of noises the past 4 months.
I have read that faulty RAM could also be the issue, I am currently running memtest86.
I have heard of people reformatting and the problem persisted.

To start: My computer is a Lenovo 520s, with Win8.1 (updated from Win8) installed.  I have two accounts: a local account (called TestMe - which has no login password), and an administrative account (Bri - which does have a login password). 
 
Also, I don't think I can run any of the software you recommend: I technically have no desktop anymore...but I there IS a way I can reach the Command Prompt and possibly boot into Safe Mode (but I'd have to run the Command Prompt as an administrator, which means using my password...and I'm worried that could cause more problems.)

Yesterday I was logged onto my Bri account and I left my PC on (I only had OneDrive open, in my Chrome browser, to upload a PDF document).  I got an error message at work that the PDF I uploaded was somehow corrupt.  When I got home I tried to reupload it with Chrome...but every time I clicked on Chrome, it wouldn't launch (which didn't phase me; Chrome acts weird from time to time).  But then the same thing happened with Firefox.

I tried going into safe mode, but when I hit the logon screen, my comp would automatically restart after a few seconds. The seconds are random. Normal mode/startup worked fine. So I thought I could try using msconfig and had windows do safeboot with minimal .... That was a bad idea, since now my computer tries to always go into safe mode, and it always restarts at logon. I've managed to type in my password fast enough but it says it's incorrect, and then restarts a split second after. And I've also tried leaving it blank, but that was incorrect.

I've tried pushing f8 during boot up choosing "repair your computer". I tried automatic fix, but that didn't work. I didn't have any restore points or images, so I couldn't do either of those. I tried the memory diagnostic and nothing was wrong. I tried using the command prompt and tried finding and running msconfig.exe in system32, but it wasn't there.

After pushing f8, I've also tried selecting safe mode with command prompt, but it goes to the same logon screen, and then restarts. I've tried "last good configuration" and "disable automatic restart on system failure" or something like those, without any luck. I've also selected normal mode but since I've selected safeboot, that just goes into the safe mode logon and restarts.

So after doing some searching, I thought I should try editing the boot.ini. I found out that windows 7 doesn't use boot.ini, but uses the boot loader program. I figured out that I had to use the command "bcdedit" in the command prompt. I found the word "safeboot" for one of the parameters in the list bcdedit provides. Then I took some time and learned how to change that. I learned I had to use the command "/deletevalue" and from there, I got my comp to go back to booting normally.

I recently bought some new hardware with which to build a computer:
Asus A8N-SLI Motherboard
1 GB Geil DDR400 (PC3200) RAM
Asus (Nvidia) Geforce 7600GS-Silent (video card)
320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 HDD SATA
Xion II (black CASE/blue LED) Case
Apevia Aspire 520W ATX12V PSU

Put it all together, took me about 5 hours because I didn't read the A8N manual and couldn't figure out where the Power Switch, Power LED, Reset Switch, and HDD LED cords went on the panel.

After I got it working and attached a monitor, I installed Windows XP somewhat seamlessly. Then, at the end, after partitioning and NTFS-formatting all 320 GB (in one partition), and copying all the files, Windows asked to restart the computer.
So, it did, and then the computer cut off.

Then, the magic happened, I turned it back on, and the monitor refused to wake from standby. It wouldn't recognize my USB wireless keyboard and mouse (I thought it was because it was missing drivers or something), so I attached a PS/2 Keyboard and tried to tap it out of standby. No response.

I am mystified as to what is wrong.
I made sure the video card was seated right, as well as all the power cords and stuff. Nothing!

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation and are sti... Read more

Until yesterday my Windows Vista Fujitsu Siemens laptop was working fine.

Today I went to turn it on, and while the 1st load up screen appears (the one that says Fujitsu Siemens, and to press F2 or F12 to enter diagnostics or bios screen) the screen then just turns black; the Windows loading screen doesn't even show.
Pressing F2 or F12 on the first screen have the same effect

If you leave the laptop to try load up for a couple of mins, and then press the power button to enter standby mode; when resuming from standby mode the log on screen appears for a second, but then promptly returns back to the black screen of death.

Also the fan doesn't seem to working - could this be connected?

The only thing I can think of that's happened recently is Microsoft did install updates two days ago.

Anybody any ideas?

Quick update:

I have connected laptop to tv and that works fine when working in safe mode. However if you try and start windows normally nothing appears on either screen.

Also the fan is working intermittently.

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&#8230;.

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&#8217;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?

hi, im a new member and ive had a really bad computer problem this year. When i open my computer, it loads normally up until the black windows loading screen pops up. It stays on it for ages and doesn't load, after about 2-3 minutes it automatically restarts and the problem starts all over again. I've tried all the booting options (e.g. safe mode) and i have also formatted my computer 3 times in 6 months. As you can probably work out, it has happened this year on about once every 2 months this year. I've had this problem once before but it has never repeated since now. I have also tried system restore, but it does not seem to work. I have also checked if my computer is overheating, and it doesn't seem to be the case as there is no dust in my fans or anywhere else inside the computer. Can anyone offer me some help please?

Thank you very much.

Hi all, I?d like your help with a problem. Every morning I turn my laptop on, log on to our family account on the blue screen, then it takes 2 minutes to load. Here is the problem: once the loading is over after logging on, sometimes it freezes on a black screen with a moveable cursor. Otherwise my desktop does appear with the wallpaper but it all freezes during the loading of the bottom right-hand side icons with a moveable cursor. I can wait for a maximum of 15 minutes, then my patience runs out. In either case I?m able to press Ctrl + Alt + Del which leads to a typical blue Vista screen with five options + Cancel. When I select Start Task Manager on that screen, it all goes black and the Task Manager never appears. In either situation, the only choice I have is to retype Ctrl + Alt + Del to bring up the blue screen and click the red power logo in the lower right-hand side and select Restart. If that gives me nothing after 15 minutes, I press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and it shuts down.

Here is the interesting part, when I repeat the process and log on the second or third time, then finally I?m able to have a fully working computer and I can carry on but these days the service is slow. Please don?t tell me that my computer finally works and to learn to live with that. The reason I am asking for help is that in case in the future the problem gets worse, and Microsoft and all Vista forums stop supporting Vista owners, I?ll be left helpless. So I wanna avoid tha...

A:Lazy startup, black screen after log on or lazy desktop icons loading

I suggest you uninstall the cracked Avast. Don't know if that is part of the problem, but it might be. There is enough freeware that I don't understand why anyone would want to do that. And if you can undo the speed up the pc thing, that is probably no good either, I don't know. However, some things to try,

If you boot up in safe mode, does this problem go away? If so, then you can disable startup services other than MS services and enable one at a time to see what is causing the problem. So check to see if the problem is not there when you boot in safe mode.

If you have a XP CD put that in and boot off of it. You may need to boot into Setup (Bios) go to Boot Priority and move CD rom drive to First Boot Device. You may also be able to change the boot order once by pressing F12.

Hello there,

So as the title says, I'm having some problems with my computer. I bought it about 4 weeks ago, and no issues with it other than when I try to play an MMO that would make the graphics card work. The graphics card that is installed in the computer was separately bought and installed, so I'm thinking it might be conflict issues with the card, but I don't know.

The way it happens is, I run the games, I can play for anything from a minute, to 15mins and then my screen says it has disconnected from the image, goes black, and I can hear my computer restart, but my screen stays black. I have to manually power off and back on for my screen to start showing images again. Once restarted i get the "Problem Event Name: Bluescreen" thing.

It's really annoying since I just bought GW2 and I can't play properly any help would be appreciated.

Also, in the Action Center it's said that my Nvidia Graphics Card has stopped working or crashed, multiple times, naming the exact times my computer crashed.. which is why I believe it has to do with my card.

Overclocking -
I recommend if you are overclocking any hardware, that you reset these values within the BIOS to their default values in order to increase the stability of your system.

Please run the following tests for your graphics card and RAM:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

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

A:PC restarts after windows loading screen

Hi knoddy


What is the make/model of your PC?

I'll assume you know that when working on a PC, you know how to take anti-static precautions, and to have the power off & the cord unplugged.

Try:
1) Remove the add-on graphics card.
2) As the computer is powering on, immediately start tapping the key/key combo mentioned in your bios banner or bios splash screen "Press F1 (or F2, F10, DEL, etc.) to Enter Setup".
3) In the Bios, make sure the date/time settings haven't moved backwards a year or two. If the time/date have moved backwards, it's time to replace the CMOS battery (see your system manual or your vendor's support webpages for full details on how to do that).
4) Look for an item in the Bios that allows you to "Save Defaults & Exit", and choose that.
5) As the system is restarting, begin tapping the F8 key, and see if you can enter Safe Mode.
6) If you can enter Safe Mode OK, visit Device Manager in the Control Panel (Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager) and remove all the devices listed in "Display Adapters".
7) Visit Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove any video/graphics drivers that might be listed there.
8) On reboot, Windows should redetect the onboard graphics, and install drivers (you might have to allow it to visit Widows Update to get the most recent driver).

If that helps things display OK, next see if you can return your video card for a refund (if it's under warra... Read more

Everytime my laptop reaches somewhen between loading screen to welcome screen, it unexpectedly restarts with no blue screen or any message. The restart it does cuts the power, turning it off and back on then boots normally. Making a restart loop.

This also happen to any Windows Installer. I tried booting it with Windows 7 and 8 installer but the problem still occurs.

The weird thing is when I run the Acer eRecovery Management or Windows System Repair and Recovery I created before upon boot, it runs fine and I be able to restore my laptop to its factory defaults. But when I tried to boot it again, the problem still occur.

THE PROBLEM ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I BOOT WINDOWS. But when I go to BIOS settings, booted USBDOS, flashing BIOS, it works fine...

What's the matter with my laptop? This is the weirdest problem that I'm facing when fixing computers...

These are the things that I had done but the problem still persists:

1. Flashed the BIOS from 1.07 to 1.10 using USBDOS.
2. Restored the BIOS to factory defaults.
3. Restarted the CMOS and changed the CMOS battery.
4. Removed the hard drive and booted using the Windows disc
5. Removed external devices and battery
6. Reseated the CPU and RAM
7. Diagnosed the RAM using memtestx86+ (no errors)
8. Check the power (no faults)

A:Windows xp restarts after loading screen

Hi sensrule and welcome to TSF !

To make it sure : you did a clean reinstall (formatting the drive, reinstalling windows from the start) and still got the same problems ?

What are the motherboard, PSU and RAM brands and models ? What are the PSU specifications (should be written on a sticker on the side of the power supply) ?

Could you download and install everest, or install whatever monitor program that came with your motherboard driver CD, and report here with the temperatures, fan speeds and voltages ? We don't need the whole everest report, only the informations under "sensor". We need to double-check those values with the ones from the BIOS, so enter the BIOS (repeatedly press del at computer startup), find the screen that monitors those voltages, fans speeds and temperatures and give us also the values reported there.

Could be faulty ram : download and burn Memtest86+ bootable ISO. Boot the computer on the CD : you'll have to enter the bios and change the boot device priority to CD-rom first. Let memtest run three full passes on your ram (it can take some time, you can let it run overnight). If it finds errors, you'll have to redo the tests on one ram stick at a time to identify the failing one(s) : open the case and leave only one ram stick on the motherboard (remove the power cable and touch a metal part of the case before you touch any internal components) then reboot on memtest CD. It's recommendend that you also run Windiag to double check ... Read more

Hello,

Tricky one this.

Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop - Was working fine, I restarted the machine then the the laptop would get to "Windows XP loading" (just before the login screen) and restart itself after the login screen.

I then disabled the harddrive after it happened a fair few times. I then booted a USB stick with ubuntu on, and it loaded but if the hard drive was connected it would show lines down the screen just a few RED GREEN BLUE ones.

So this morning I placed a Latitude D630 hard drive in the laptop. It would do the same but this time with vista.

What could the problem be?

I'm wondering possibly could it be the bios? How can I over come this. There was an error with the Windows XP when I stopped the machine from restarting but rather it turning straight off it came up with a blue screen about how i have installed new software or hard ware. The only thing was before it turned off it had some form of virus on it, which disabled the microsoft essential security.

I tried installing AVG but it didn't work as Windows Installer now wasn't working. The virus seemed to had only affected the internet when I done searches a page unrelated to the search would display.
