Program/process running flashing a black screen on my desk.

As I am workng on my computer get a black screen that flashes... .it just recently started happening... very annoying. Someone at - he never experienced HRT? I don't see how ths screen is that it disappears.


Please try to place your computer in a boot minimum scenerio.  It seems that there is a 3rd party application or process running which is the filler on your screen.

Once you find an app that runs on your computer that is the filler, please remove the startup item or delete/remove the program.  I hope that this information is beneficial.

Thank you

  • Premiere Pro CC - program monitor displays only a black screen

    Hi all

    I hope there, can someone help me (and I'm sure many others) with this problem.

    I used the first Pro CS6 and was at Midway through a project when I upgraded to first Pro CC. It was very good and I finished the project, however shortly after this when I re-entered Premiere Pro CC to make some final adjustments and settings, the program monitor seems to be black. I see nothing but black on the monitor of the program window. When I play the project, the sound works fine, but I don't see anything in the program monitor.

    Please see the discussion linked here ( for more information on this issue. I'm hoping to turn the heat on it and get answers for everyone having this problem. She made my first Pro useless right now. I can't yet start new projects because it has the same problem.

    NOTE: I tried to roll back the CS6, but it does not work and I discovered this forum that roll back versions has never been possible. I also tried to reinstall CC PP but that does not solve the problem.

    I hope someone can help here.

    Thank you!

    I hope never auto-updates for nothing! I went to and found a driver for your 5200M last month, try this -

  • Flashing blue/black screen on installing the VM - Windows Server 2012 RC tools


    I have a problem with the installation of the tools from the virtual machine to a new server RC VM Workstation v8.0.2 2012 both 8.0.3: when the graphics driver is installed the machine virtual display flashes blue and black and can not be recovered.

    Reboot safe mode allows the virtual machine to start with a working screen, where to find VM tools apparently not installed. I then had success removing the VM graphics card and from the virtual machine as usual. VM tools then displays correctly installed in the virtual machine, but there is no VM card in Device Manager.

    I tried the suggestion here ( nothing works.

    Someone at - he managed a successful VM Server 2012 RC tools installation?

    See you soon,.


    I had this same problem when installing Server 2012 RC x 64 on my new machine simply active and virtual 3D graphics acceleration in the preferences of the VM.  This solved my problem.

  • To monitor a program/process running using launchd


    I wrote a simple bash script to check if a program (supplied as single argument) is running and send an email to an address defined in the script, if it isn't. The script works if run on the command line, but I can't for the life of me operate under launchd as user agent (~/Library/LaunchAgents) when I try to set it to run every minute. The latest incarnation of the relevant .plist file (monitors Dropbox):

    <? XML version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8" standalone = "yes"? >

    <! DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0 / / IN" "" > ""

    < plist version = "1.0" >

    Yes - the bash script is executable, and no there is no entry in the Console indicating problems with the .plist file. I tried to / bin/bash program, but this does not seem to make any difference and reading execvp (3) seems to hint that he would not. I also tried to have everything under < ProgramArguments > without a bit of luck as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated because it seems pretty basic to me, and it's very frustrating that I can't make it work!

    I always use this syntax:

    < key > ProgramArguments < / key > < table >

    < string >/bin/bash < / string >

    < string >-c < / string >

    < string >. Bash as; you want < / string >

    I have 2 PC which have made in the last 7 days, last update Microsoft OneCare was killied accounts Admin,.

    To fix, you need to uninstall Onecare through the tool of uninstalling the program.

    Heres how

    (1) start the computer Safe Mode (press f8 just before the first window of the screen with the time bar) and log on to the Admin account

    (2) execute MSCONFIG as editable (type search box of the start menu, right click and run as administrator)

    (3) select Diagnostic startup and click ok, then restart

    (4) log on as administrator, and then start /panneau Panel programs and features select Windows Live OneCare in the list and uninstall. This may fail with an error (it did on both the PC I corrected.)

    (5) run MSCONFIG as administrator again select normal startup, OK and restart and it solved the problem

    (6) install the new Microsoft Security Essentials that OneCare will anyway

  • Re: Satellite A100-011 does not start, a black screen at the beginning

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-011, which is almost 5-6 years. It suddenly started to behave abnormal.

    First of all, I started to get a 1-2 sec black screen when he was running. The screen was on and off occasionally.

    After a few days, I could not started upward from my windows xp sp3 operating system. I tried to start in safe mode with networking to see if I had a few spy, virus or something. I ran avast, hijact, ad-aware and some more, but not found anything.

    Later, I tried to format my laptop with a xp professional, but this time I can't see any reflection that passes more fun running and a black screen. I just got a black screen at the beginning and it does not start.

    I plugged on a television screen, and here I have started. I have re-installed all the drivers and formatted, but all I get is a black screen on my laptop at the beginning.

    What should I do now? Do you think I have a problem with my screen of HW or a driver problem with nvidia geforce go 7600? Maybe I'm missing something?

    Thanks in advance for all replies.

  • The Windows Setup program does not open. Stuck with black screen.

    Hi all

    I'm trying to install windows 7 from an iso file using Bootcamp assistant, Version 6.0.1 but unfortunately just windows installer does not open so I'm stuck with this black screen. I left my sit MacBookPro autour with this black screen during more than half an hour and after awhile, it gets really hot so I interrupted the "process."

    I have reset the NVRAM (command + alt + p + r) which did nothing.

    I followed the instructions of bootcamp. I downloaded the correct drivers for my model of mac pro book, I created a bootable and partitioned my drive.

    The forum has a lot of "black screen problems" but none of their solutions worked for me.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    1. leave BCA creates the installer from USB, but not to partition your drive.

    2. download the correct drivers to install Windows 7 and previous versions on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support and replace $WinPEDriver$, AutoUnattend.xml, and the entire folder on the drive flash USB2 Bootcamp.

    3. run BCA, connect the USB cable and click only the Windows Installer and test if the Setup program starts.
