Q: Solved: Freezing screen, now black..after start up

Firstly, I am a bit of a computerphobe, and will be lost on any major technical terms, so please bear with me...

I have a samsung R700 laptop, which decided this morning to die.

I had downloaded some films last night (which I have done many times with no problems previously), switched off the laptop (which rarely do - prefering instead to hibernate.)

When I switched it back on this morning, windows was carrying out about a million updates.

After around 10 minutes, the screen came on, and everything looked normal. I tried to open a document, but the laptop screen froze, and although the curser was there and moving, I was unable to close or open any other pages/applications.

After restarting a few times and having the same thing happen, I started in safemode, restored it back to last month, and tried again. In safemode I can scan (have used 3 virus scanners which have been reccomended) but all results are clear. I can access the internet and all of my documents.

Restarted the machine after an hour switched off, and when booting up in normal mode, the home screen is just black. There is a white cursor which moves, but no taskbar or icons etc. Safe mode is still functional.

Any advice would be greatly received
Thanks in advance

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.)

So whenever I start up my hp pavilion g6 the screen stays black and I get the blink code on the caps lock key, I have researched this and found out that it was either a board system failure or a cpu not functional.  I have reseated my memory modules to see if that would work, it didnt. I have tried starting up from bios menu and running the memory and hard drive test,  but everytime this happens my computer freezes and I have to restart because it never unfreezes. This happens every single time I try to launch in safe mode or repair mode and I cant do anything about it. I have attempted to system restore off of repair mode but everytime I get close to it an error pops up asking to disable drivers and how it has been canceled to prevent damage to my computer. I cannot do anything about fixing the first problem because the freezing problem doesnt allow me. I have also tried running the diagnostics off of the bios but again the freezing thing stops it. Someone please help

I'm using an HP ENVY TS 17-J130US NB PC on Windows 10 and have been experiencing this issue for the last several weeks.

I believe this occurred after one of the windows updates and the computer didn't shut down correctly. The next time I booted up the system, it basically froze. I've tried updating my graphics driver but am still experiencing these issues.

From time to time the system will freeze although I've been able to use it. But recently when it's about to freeze, my google chrome pages start to not load and my task bar reacts very slowly (opening task manager requires a lot of patience).

I'm not really sure where to start (originally, I thought it was an application like Skype because everytime I opened skype, it would freeze. I've uninstalled skype but still experience these issues).

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I put new memory into a friends computer. She has an HP Pavilion 511w. It came with 128 MB and can hold up to 512. I got the right memory because even the company I bought it from says it is right oemworld. I put in 2 sticks of 256. No problems putting it in and the computer recognizes it because it shows 512 now. Here is the problem.

When I started the computer back up everything was fine then an error message came up saying I needed to update the video driver I assumed because of more memory and as far as I no she had never updated it and it is at least 4 years old. I first went to the HP Site and looked under her computer the 511w and it had a driver update there for a Intel Extreme Graphics Driver update 02/2005 version 6.14.10.3943 6.36MB, the one in her computer matched that except for the extreme part so I downloaded it and thought that was it. It worked ok for a while then started freezing up and the monitor would go to a black screen. I got looking and hers was an 810E (I think I remember that?s what it was) anyway I went to the Intel site and found the driver that should have been put in it was for the 810E chip set. I have an extra computer here at home that is also the 511w so I downloaded that driver into mine and everything works fine. Anyway I went to her place and was going to roll back the extreme driver I had put in and then put the one in from Intel. I went into device driver and open the adapter and double clicked on it and went to the driver and clicked ... Read more

I found a virus on my pen drive, so I started the task manager and started looking for the suspicious processes. I thought it was lsass.exe. So I tried to end this process. But it didn't end. I searched the net and found that it is a trojan and it is present in system32 of the windows folder.
I rebooted and now I started windows7 and I went on to look for the lsass.exe in the windows xp drive and deleted it. Later on I scanned the windows xp drive and deleted all the viruses.
On further research I found that the lsass.exe is an essential process and it is virus only if it is present in any other place than system32. Now when I start windows xp I get a black screen after the windows xp logo.
I tried to work out the solution by copying the lsass.exe from Windows Vista to Windows xp but it didn't work. Please tell me where can I find the lsass.exe for the windows xp ,do I need to repair or format?

My old computer that I used until last year has been stowed away since then, but yesterday I hauled it out and tried to start it up.

It turns on and I just get a black screen, and 2 short beeps intermittently.

based on the fact that my motherboard uses a AMI BIOS (Intel D845HV), apparently this beep code indicates a memory parity failure.

I tried testing the computer with each individual ram stick which didn't change anything.

I don't know what to do now but I'm pretty sure it's a hardware issue.

Any ideas or anyone experienced this before?
 

A:Solved: Black screen on start up

Sometimes the CMOS configuration memory gets corrupted if a PC is not used for a long time. Or the CMOS battery may be dead if the PC is very old (4-5 years).

You can try resetting the configuration memory using the CMOS reset jumper. The jumper is usually near the battery on the motherboard (the battery is about the size of a US 5 cent coin). There are usually three pins with a jumper between two of them. Moving the jumper to the other side resets the CMOS. You want to do this with the computer turned off, then return the jumper to the original position.

If that isn't it, and the PC is 4-5 years old or older, consider replacing the battery.

Hi,

Just recently I've been encountering an issue when trying to start up my computer. The computer would seem to run normally up until the Windows XP loading screen. After that, the computer screen would just stay black (no matter how long I leave my computer on for) with no cursor. Occasionally I would get a blue screen flicker and it would lead to the computer trying to reboot, but failing (The blue screen however flickers for less than 1 sec).

So pretty much I am unable to boot up my computer normally. I am able to boot up in Safe mode with or without network. Whenever I boot up in these modes, my resolution is messed and am unable to change it. I have scanned my computer with Trend Micro and Malwarebytes for possible infections and have removed all infections that were present (I recall seeing "rootkit"?). The computer seems to be clean of any infections now, but I am still having trouble booting up my computer normally.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

Hi,

I have a AMD Athlon XP Processor.

After noticing that the speed wasnt preforming right - i.e. 1.25 GHZ instead of 2.25GHZ i went into the Bios on a MSI motherboad and went to CPU Speed and it was set as 100MHZ but i put it it up 200 thinking it was that or it could of been the CPU Frequency as 100MHZ and i put that up to 200MHZ.

After doing that it rebooted with a black screen nothing comming up.

I inserted a floppy disc to see if it was booting up as i would be able to tell to see if it accesses it - but no.

What has happened - is there anyway of doing anything, as the keyboard doesnt work either as i would of been able to change it in the Bios.

Problem:
Black screen. No BIOS read-outs. Not possible to enter the BIOS menu. CPU fan, hard drive and other indicator lights up and works normally.
 
Synopsis:
PC starts normally at about every 30 attempts. In this case, the BIOS (F2) or Windows 7 starts normally. Observations suggest that PC will only start when it is completely cold, ie when it has been off for at least 2 hours between 2 start-up attempts. This time can be reduced to about 15 min, if cooling elements are placed on both sides of the motherboard (below the PC, and on top of the keyboard).
 
What has been studied / tried?
Power supply and connectors - ok.
Battery ok (though worn and should be replaced because it will no longer charge for max capacity).
CMOS battery holds 3V (although volt drops at loads > 5 mA).
Ram, HDD and CPU is tested / changed and found ok.
Motherboards (incl. Graphics chip) has been tested and found ok using various test programs from the official Lenovo Support.
Visual inspection of the motherboard: Nothing to report.
Heating the graphics chip using heat gun (in order to eliminate any cold solder joints) did not solve the problem.
Attempt installation of the latest original BIOS executable file from the Lenovo Support (only possible under Windows) fails:

I first want to say thank you for such an informative, detailed write-up.  Everything in the procedure worked for me, with no issues, until the (optional) step of "Download and install the latest original BIOS Lenovo Support." I downloaded the Z580 BIOS updater from Link A, released 8/13/2014. Upon attempting the installation of the first file, Public.exe, it appears to be successful, the computer reboots, and then is stuck gets stuck in an infinite boot loop asking to select the boot device. This has been detailed by other users, Link B. If you decide to attempt the Lenovo BIOS update and get stuck in this boot loop, try the following:When the boot device screen comes up, press tab to select Bios OptionsUnder Bios Options, scroll to the rightmost menu and change the boot type from UEFI to Legacy (Link B). This allows the PC to boot, but under a slow legacy debugging mode - things are NOT fixed at this point. Insert your bootable USB key, containing Flash.bat and then restart the computerWhen the computer boots, keep pressing F12 to choose the boot device, and move the USB key to the top of the listThe portable Windows 98 OS will then start from the USB key, and you can reinstall the BIOS from the "Flash.bat" file. Note, I did not have to reactivate Windows after this procedure.  System Specifications:Lenovo Z580, model 2151, manufactured 2012/05/24Core i5-3210M processor2x4 GB RAMIntel HD3000 graphicsWindows 7 home premium 64...

Hi there,

My wife has Lenovo G560 laptop (16 months old), and just recently it's started doing a few things it shouldn't.

When powering up she'll press the 'power' button, and it'll come up with either a totally black screen, or the opening 'Lenovo' splash screen (where it's loading stuff, I guess) before either staying there locked up or going black. Restarting is the only way to get things up and running - and then it always takes at least 1 re-boot every time - often 2 or 3 reboots.

It's steadliy become more frequent, to the stage it's at now where it happens every time.

I had suspicions that a recent install of Photoshop might've been the culprit, but uninstalling it has made no difference. A Malwarebytes scan resulted in some viruses, which have been removed by the program, and scans now come up clean. Seems System Restore was turned off (It's on now)

Any suggestions much appreciated,

HI,
I was being helped by Quads on the norton community. I know he helps out here too. Quads was helping me but I screwed up, thought I was helping to save time(yes, I know I saved you alot of time now) but I did not follow complete instructions.



This is what was done so far

OTL scan was run

adwcleaner was run

had adwcleaner delete all and reboot

ran combofix

when computer was rebooting it got stuck on the black screen for about an hour

Had to restart it again and when it did it restored to a previous date

This is where I screwed up

Since it was a previous date it seemed like nothing had taken place, no downloads on the desktop.

Ran the otl scan again

adwcleaner again, log looked the same as first time so I deleted all again

Ran combofix and rebooted and it gave me a log

That is where I am stuck, I dont know whether to leave these downloads on the computer, delete them

I dont think that Quads is going to help me anymore since I messed up, so I was wondering if anyone else could help. I just really want to finish what was started. The computer was stuck on the black screen this morning and finally got it restarted after about 5 times. But I do think there is some kind of virus. Still have adwcleaner and combofix downloaded on the computer. Dont know if I should delete them or what.

This can be caused by a number of things.
The first thing to do is to find out if it is hardware or software related.
The best way to do this is to boot into the bios and leave it there for a bit.

Hello, over the last week to week and a half my computer has been getting worse and worse. I think its triggered by right clicking objects although I dont think thats entirely whats causing the problem. The screen will freeze and then the monitor will turn black and the computer will have to be restarted. The problem can occur as frequently as 3 times in 10 minutes currently. From the last day upon restarting some images have traces of minor pixelation errors, especially the windows icon as the PC is restarting and certain other random/minor images like above my back/forward, refresh and stop bottons in IE appear pixelated. As I'm posting this the problem occured and the screen went to a blue screen and mentioned something of proceeding with a physical memory dump and i restarted right away. I have avast running with script blocker(although turned it off for the DDS) so I dont know what may have pentrated the PC to cause this if it malicious. I'm running a Dell 4600 with windows xp.

Hi all, I got a Aspire S7-392 and keeps getting black screen on reboot or reboots with Acer logo or repair screen freezing.  When it freezes its all quiet and i dont hear anything from the laptop, however, when it goes to black screen the fans are running.  I got the laptop from somebody to fix it with tons of viruses and maleware.  I installed Windows 10 on it and it worked ok, but on one of the reboots the above problems started happening. I tried to do fresh reinstall of Windows 10 from the usb drive but i can't get the bios settings to save when i change the boot priority or make other changes.  Any help please?  Thank you

Before this happened, I could put my computer on sleep without any problems. Now, when I put it on sleep, I turn it on, the screen freezes. I shut it down, start it again, and then the Loading Windows freezes. Another problem is a small one I felt like adding, is that the Windows 7 screen where it is loading up your computer, doesn't show for me. This is not a problem where other users could not log on. All mine does is have a black screen, then loads to my desktop. So it works fine, just that the screen doesn't show. Please help.

Can you boot into safe mode (F8)"
Do you have the win 7 dvd to do a repair install?

Do you have a backup, by chance?

Hey,

My laptop (Asus A52F) starting acting up about a week ago. It seems to be seizing and then black-screening if I have it do anything more than one small task. For example it often freezes up during scans, when I plug in a hard drive or if I try to download absolutely anything and then I have to force shut down by holding the power button.
I've tried running a few different virus/malware scans (Super Anti Spyware, Ad-aware and Malware Bytes) and they found a couple little things but the compuet has still been acting up.
I've tried keeping an eye on the task manager while trying anything that usually freezes the computer and I'm seeing any jumps in the CPU. I've attempted to do a system restore as well but there is no restore point to use.
If anyone has any ideas I'd be very thankful.
Cheers.

Hello all - just joined the forum and added some system info to my profile.

Story so far:

All seemed well until trying to render video projects using Pinnacle Studio 11.1, when I would get random freezes or black screens with the pc being unresponsive, requiring power down (5 seconds holding the button) or reset.

After some time on Studio related forums I bought more RAM recommended from Crucial. No difference. I bought a new video card. No difference.

I defragged, updated drivers, updated bios. no difference.

I then started experimenting with Prime95 torture test, Memtest86+, PassMark's Burn-In Test and Windows Memory Diagnostic with the following results:

Memtest86+ completed one pass ok. Have not yet left it running for longer.

Prime95 runs overnight with no errors when testing large FFT's so far. It produces the black screen crash overnight on small FFT testing but was running ok for over 2 hours to start with.

PassMark Burn-In shareware only runs for 15mins before stopping. Occasionally this crashes or freezes.

WMD always fails on the Stride6 test. If I vary the RAM (original 512MB, new 1GB, or total 1.5GB) it will fail at diffent points during Stride6. Only once did it complete Stride6 (when running with 512MB RAM) but then failed on the 2nd pass. Reading other forums on Stride6 failures makes me think it could be a PSU, CPU or mobo issue.

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.

System Restore

If the above desn't help, one of the Forum experts prepared a troubleshooting guide for failure to start issues.

Hi guys,

I have just installed Windows 7 and I'm having some major trouble with my graphics card. I had Vista installed, and just got my laptop from back from Dell after some repairs for faulty motherboard/GPU. I have wiped my hard drive and started fresh by installing Windows 7 Build 7100. All seemed good when I first opened it up, everything was nice but I noticed I only had Vista Basic color scheme. I had a look in device manager and under display adaptor it had Standard VGA adaptor listed.

I then installed my nVidia driver number 185.85 and upon restart I got a black screen after welcome screen. I then rebooted and all seemed fine. After around 15-20 seconds of use windows would lock up for a minute or so, then flash a BSOD and then reboot. I figured it was a driver issue, so I jumped on and downloaded the latest driver for my graphics card (GeForce 8400M GS) which was 186.03. This had the exact same result. Random shutdowns and failing to boot, alot of freezing when I could boot.

I have found if I go into device manager and disable it, I can run windows 7 fine but can't use screen savers or basically anything that needs graphics. Any help would be great as I woul love to keep using Windows 7. Cheers guys.

Hi there. Recently my computer has been crashing an awful lot. I am just doing a task and, usually if it does, it will cut to black. The computer doesn't make any noise and I have to restart it. Sometimes it will freeze on the screen, once it actually cut to a completely white screen.

I always thought this was because I was using Google Chrome, it always seemed to be whilst that was loaded. However now its happening without that. Also, Firefox has become completely disabled, I click on the icon and nothing happens.

So, I have no idea why this is happening! It's very worrying as I am starting a new year at college next week. I have run several anti-virus checks, SpyBot checks, that sort of thing.

A:Windows 7 keeps crashing, freezing, black screen?

RELEVANCY SCORE 54

Hello.

Recently my hp pavilion dm4 with switchable radeon 5000 series gpu has started acting funny.

It started months ago with poor performance in streaming videos online when the radeon was activated (dubbed "hi performance" in the OS.) This problem seemed to get better after reinstalling Windows back in March or April and using canned air to clean the innards of dust.

However, about a week ago while playing a game, the screen froze up and the computer rebooted. Upon restart, I got a message saying the video driver had crashed and was incompatible with the catalyst control center (not exactly sure what that is, but I installed several different driver versions to no avail.)
The computer continues crashing in this way, and often will show bars or a checker pattern on the screen before freezing. To make matters worse, a good percentage of the time, the screen will remain black upon startup. I've tried reinstalling the OS, and thankfully was able to boot in safe mode and back up all of the files I needed. I'm tempted to rule out malware as a cause due to the fact that the problem persists after reinstalling Windows.

I have used canned air to blow out all the fans, and have kept up with that habit pretty well since I started experiencing the slowness in video playback. I have not noticed any extreme overheating since I amended the initial problem earlier this year.

I'm ready to spend a small amount on fixing this, but I'm also pretty ready to upgrade... Read more

A:Bad GPU? Freezing, black screen, and graphic artifacts.

Since you have done a (clean?) install of W7, that eliminates a lot of common problems. You can certainly stop thinking about viruses.

I have a couple of questions:
Where did you get the video driver(s) for the laptop when you did the reinstall? From the HP website only, or did you use the driver package from ATI? In the early days of dual graphics, the driver package was for both graphics chips and available only from the laptop manufacturer. Using the package from ATI would cause problems.
What happens if you disable the Hi-Performance graphics (in Device Manager)? Yes, your video performance will drop, but does that make the artifacts and freezing stop? This test is to try and isolate the problem graphics chip.
Does this behavior happen only on battery, or when the battery and power supply are both connected? What happens if you run on the power supply only and remove the battery completely?

My PC: ASUS P4 2.67G with 1G RAM. nVidia FX5200 AGP graphics card. Compro TV Tuner Card. XP Pro SP2.

Background:

Last Wednesday i installed a new TV Tuner Card. System was fine til about 3 days ago.

The problem:

The other day i was working on my PC and started smelling a mild electrical burning smell. The smell faded before i could figure out what it is, but came back again about 10 minutes later, followed closely by my system freezing and my monitor going black. I had to pull the power cord out the back of the system to turn it off.

After a few minutes i turned it back on again, and it appeared to boot fine. About 5 minutes after using it, the same thing happened again and the screen went black.

At this point, i figured the problem was most probably my AGP Card, so i got the case apart and took it out. After changing my monitor back to the on-board graphics (SiS chipset) the system appeared to boot fine again.

I used it for probably 10hrs of use after this and was thinking the problem was solved until this morning when i smelt that burning smell again, followed by the entire system freezing up. This time though, the screen did NOT go black, so i assume the onboard graphics are ok still.

At this point today i removed the TV Tuner card, rebooted and it loaded fine. I've not used it much this this happened.

I'm not sure what actually caused these problems, or if they are more serious than they appear.

I have looked at the AGP card & the TV Tu... Read more

On my 2nd X1 extreme, the first was bricked. Everytime I boot into Windows, I experience a freeze and afterwards a black screen after some time (a minute or so). The laptop became unusable in windows. I have all the windows and vantage updates. I disabled all remote management stuff in the bios, disabled all secure boot settings, set some keyboard preferences (swap ctrl-fn etc.) and changed my graphics adapter to discrete only. I tried windows restore and after experiencing some blue screens, that helps a bit: still freezing, but not always. When I reapply all windows and vantage updates the laptop goes back to the same behaviour: boot into windows and after a minute or so a total freeze, followed by a black screen some 5 seconds later and still later fans spinning up to full speed. The updates include the latest graphics drivers, and I think the issue maybe has something to do with these graphic updates, but not sure.Some more observations:- The laptop never froze when Windows was applying updates. This takes longer then the usual time to have it freeze.- During updating the laptop, when I logged into windows, I sometimes got a windows notification saying the gfx driver failed to start and windows is reverting to a generic driver. I can't remember exactly, but I think the laptop never froze when using the generic one. I run the machine in dual boot and on linux the behaviour is absent.

Let me start at the beginning of my current saga.

1. I received a blue screen of death about 4 months ago, the first time I had ever received one before. I restarted my computer and everything has been fine since then.

2. More often than not, I close my laptop at the end of the night and let it hibernate, only shutting it down every once in a while or restarting for windows update. Last night, I opened my laptop and had a few Chrome tabs open, as per usual, and everything was fine. Then for some reason everything froze. A freeze that locked everything up. I want to attribute this to windows update reminding me to restart after my previous update. I proceeded to force shut down and restart, then the black screen of death hit me. Just the mouse on the pitch black screen. Prior to the initial black screen of death, a popup occurred wanting me to end the process of "Windows Operating System" if memory serves. Since the computer is frozen, rarely can I click cancel on this. (Note: this popup will continue to happen later on)

3. I did a system restore to the first previous date at the F8 screen upon startup. It was successful but same result. I attempted further system restore points to the 3 other restore points but they all failed.

4. Several attempts to boot into Safe Mode were unsuccessful. Further attempts to boot into the regular startup resulted in being stuck at the Black Screen of Death.
