Pavilion dm4 1041tx: black screen after the windows logo

My laptop screen has frozen while watching a video then after restarting it displays black screen but I can connect to windows using the laptop and fingerprint reader can be closed by windows by pressing and then alt + f4, then alt + f4, then enter. Works in safe mode. Disable the ati graphics card did not work. Same execution of recovery did not work.
Hard drive test results:
Smart check: past
DST short: PAST
Help, please...

Hi @vikash4309 ,

At this point I agree with the tech that look at the computer I think it's a problem with the hard drive or even the system board. They may give falsely on the test results. I would recommend that you take it back to this HP's Service Center.

If you do not replace the hard drive recovery CDs should work as long as replace you it with another hard drive and not an SSD because they are different and the recovery CD will know how to properly partition the drive.

    You say you have "defective" material and you want a software solution?

    Any material support - including the drivers and other software that may be necessary to enable a hardware component to operate fully in a given operating system - is the manufacturer of the equipment.  So if you have a problem with your nVidia GT220 video card - your first stop should be nVidia.

  • Black screen after the Windows Logo screen

    All of a sudden just put off the computer. I keep trying to start it up, but just then it gets to a black screen and does nothing.

  • Black screen after the windows login

    Hi, I have a HP Pavilion DV7 notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. A problem I've noticed is that, once I connect to windows during a boot, the screen is black for about 1-2 minutes. After awhile, explorer.exe would with desktop, taskbar and icons. I am concerned about this 1 to 2 minutes of black screen after the boot as it did not exist previously. I know I have options such as restoring the computer laptop back to the default state, or by using the system restore. However, I don't want to lose all my stuff, and with respect to the restoration of the system, I'm not sure when the problem happening, as it was some time ago. I have read a Microsoft article, ( and tried all the steps with the graphics card and the regestry, but nothing seems to work.

    -Task Manager is able to open when the screen is black (shows explorer.exe running)

    -J' have the drivers on the HP support site

    -laptop is HP Pavilion DV7 3024ca

    You will need to login using the method of trial and error. Please uncheck all of the MSCONFIG Startup tab and restart the system. If the black screen issue is resolved, then check out an application every time and restart the system. This will help you to identify the program interfere.

  • iPhone ran out of battery, now wont start black screen after the apple logo

    Hey not last night, but the night before, I forgot to plug my phone so it died while I was sleeping. When I woke up, I plugged and went a little. When I came back I noticed that the phones screen was on, but black. I tried to restart with the buttons and everything that I do not understand what could be wrong. The battery is not cause fried, it continues to display the apple logo then a black screen. I would prefer not to have my phone back and to lose everything, and I can't really afford to pay someone more than 200 to tell my my phone is broken, please help.

    Have you tried that?

    Try a forced reboot. No data is lost during this procedure. Hold on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

  • Pavilion 15-243cl after automatic update of windows 8.1 I get a black screen after the home page.

    recently installed an automatic update of windows 8.1. Now, I get a black screen after the home page. I can load the Task Manager and access the internet. tried to go to the SafeMode to start with f8, but several attempts failed. I updated my graphics driver from AMD today and same black screen. I've also restored sytem to an earlier date using the HP utility with results screen - black even after the home page.


    Try the following.

    Boot the computer normally and log.

    Black screen, old the ctrl and alt keys and press delete.

    Select Task Manager.

    Click on file and select the new task.

    Type rstrui - also enter a tick in the box for "create this task with administrative privileges" - and click on Ok.

    When the system restore interface is loaded, choose a restore point at least 48 hours before the opening of session question (IE before the last batch of Windows updates have been applied) occurred initially and then proceed to the system restore.

  • HP M9000: Black screen after the "Starting Windows" logo and the windows on the screen

    I just gave me a m9040n HP Pavilion Elite with a Q6600 CPU, graphics card ge force and two 500 GB HARD drives in.

    When I starts it up it seems to be ok the HP blue screen will lights up at the start of the BONE and displays "starting Windows" on the screen with the windows logo. and then it goes to black with just the cursor on the screen. (Vista) So I know WHAT BIOS is ok, the graphics are windows allowed from.

    I went to the HP system F11 recovery and he seems to think that all is well... Very confused ideas?

    It looks like one or more of the boot loader files has been corrupted.

    You need access to a PC for this phase of work in order to create the necessary support to fix your PC boot loader.

    You will need to create something called a CD-ROM of repair of Win7. This will repair the boot loader files, and if that is the problem, your PC will start OK after that.  Yes, it's for Win7, but Vista uses the same bootstrapper, so you can use Win7 to repair the Vista bootloader files.

    The file you need can be obtained (with supplement) from this link:

    When you download this file, it will be an ISO file.

    To make a CD bootable it, you will need to download and install ImgBurn:

    Once you have installed, run, select the option "Save image to disk file" and select the downloaded ISO file and that it points to a blank CD.

    To make a USB bootable of it, you will need to download and install RUFUS:

    Once you have that, it is executed in the input of the unit, use the drop down menu to select the USB stick.  Near the bottom right, where is written 'Create a bootdisk to aid', select the ISO file downloaded.

    Boot from the media that you have created and follow the instructions in this link:

    You will probably need to run Startup Repair three times for him to fix all the boot loader.

    Once completed, your PC should start OK.

    If it isn't, then some files of the operating system has also been corrupted and the only way to fix it would be to perform a system recovery - which if F11 does not work, but a recovery from the PC to its original using recovery media state.

    Problem there is that HP no longer wears a recovery media for the Vista PC, so you should check to see if these sites still have it: and

    Good luck

  • G62 screen remains black after the windows logo


    I have a HP G62-b05SD. I noticed that many people have the problem of simmular.

    I know what makes, but don't know how to fix it.

    So here it is.

    Sometimes when I boot / reboot system screen turns black after the windows logo, but if I wait a while, I do not hear the star tune up windows, but the screen remains black.

    I noticed that this happens when I shut down or restart the system with a usb port (be it a mouse or a stick is not serious)

    If I all out en usb port restart or turn on the machine for the first time this day here, everything starts well.

    So there must be some driver problems I think with usb ports and the screen or something.

    Help, please!

  • Satellite M70 - black screen after the installation of recovery

    So far, what I did is put in the Recovery DVD - ROM product. Then when my computer restarts I was invited to restore my computer failing and said. After that he went through this process, that he told me to remove the disc that I did. Now he only get a black screen after the Toshiba screen that gives me options f2 for Setup and f12 for options.

    I don't know what to do now to make my laptop works again. Help, please.

    Hi Zach_1,

    Have you tried to launch the installation of recovery again? Maybe that something was wrong during the first installation, it might have arrived
    Then retry the recovery facility and see what happens.

    If it doesn't work you should try a normal Microsoft disk so determine if the problem is related to hardware or recovery disk.

  • Start window manager: sometimes when I started my PC I have a black screen with the Windows boot manager at the top.

    Sometimes when I start my PC I have a black screen with the Windows boot manager at the top.  Although there are several options available, that nothing happens no matter what keys I hit and the only option is to shut down the computer and restart completely.  Sometimes the Boot Manager page turns and my office sometimes opens fine.  I've updated with everything Microsoft has Windows Vista and I still get this screen.  Anyone has any ideas.

    Do a startup repair and see if that fixes it:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.
