I went on vacation and turned off my computer.  When I got home, I stupidly plugged in my blackberry storm, while the system was starting the system.  Now all I get is the black screen with the white pointer stupid.  I tried the solution of Task Manager and a few others who were listed in the similar questions to no prevail.  At one point I did a boot repair tool and he returned with it could not repair the iso standards, ico or something like that.  I did a system restore to an earlier date to before I left and that did not help.  Please help me.  Thank you.



You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If yes you can try Control Panel - device
Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click on UPDATE driver - then right click
on devices and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure)
CTRL + ALT + DELETE and on the tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - then
on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is reached
by tapping F8 as you start several times.

First check this thread in case it is simple and if not to come back to this thread.

Black screen problems are extremely difficult to repair and all patch is usually on a base hit or miss.
That there is no information on a black screen as it is on a blue screen just adds to the
Difficulty. Often using a restore point or Startup Repair will have no effect. You can try a
Google to see the proposed repairs, whom some have worked however these cover a wide
field efforts.

Here's a video of one of them.

Here's another fix

You have a Vista disk? You can try restoring the system to it. If you don't have the disks your
system manufacturer will sell them at low prices. Or try in safe mode if you can get there.

How to make a Vista system restore

You can create a recovery disc or use someone even version (making the system restore it)
must be bootable).

How to create a Vista recovery disk


These require the correct Vista discs since you can not start safe mode.

Try the Startup Repair tool-

Here are a few Google searches where many have found different solutions:

If necessary and you can access all ordinary Windows.

You can try an In-Place Upgrade (hopefully save programs and data) or a repair installation
(if all goes well, the data records and need to reinstall programs). Be sure to do a good backup or three.

You can use another DVD that aren't copy protected but you you need to own
Product key.

On-site upgrade

If nothing works, you can make a repair facility that must save the data but you will need to
Reinstall the programs. This also requires correct Vista disks especially for OEM versions. You will be
need to know your product Code.

Another method that works sometimes: at the command prompt, type of Vista startup disk:
(a line type or copy and paste one line at a time and hit enter - enter a bracket)
or "BOLD")



CD c:\Windows\System32\winevt (there is a space between cd and C :)

Ren LogsOLD Logs (there are spaces between ren and newspapers and Logsold)


I hope this helps.

  • Latitude E7440 display goes black / white after "starting Windows."

    I suspect that he is an out-of-the-box issue (like the power button lights, either), but maybe I'm missing something... This particular unit fired upward, as planned and took our standard image. Somewhere along the way (probably during one of its reboots), I noticed that the screen is out. Turn down and the back didn't solve it, or don't have reset the BIOS. Dell diags run without problem and I can start Windows in Mode safe... but whenever I start Windows normally, it removes after "Starting Windows" flashes by.

    AARRGGHH! I'm kicking myself. It was something I discovered some time ago and since then I forgot... I had stacked them! I have closed an E7440, placed another on top of it and proceeded to the image of this second unit. At some point, I must have changed it so slightly... put it right above all that the devil is in the cover of the display of the unit of the first! (A magnetic field, is my guess). And "in white" is the second display unit... hit the light of the power button, and as a bonus. It worked as planned, when I moved this unit to another place, in order to tap into a flat HDMI. And it is blanked, as soon as I put back it on top of the first E7440. Mystery solved.

  • Screen is colored for about 3-4 seconds when I run vista and then past black and white after UPDATE 2/10

    I had automatic updates and at 03:00 it will download new updates whenever they come. I guess that 2/10 have been installed the updates that came out and when it automatically restarted my computer, everything was normal on the login screen, but once Windows started, 3-4 seconds and it went black and white. It is not my monitor or my video card, I tried 3 OTHER monitors on this and I own two myself. I need to restore both before the update was installed for my screen to return to the color... Anyone else having the same problem or knows what is happening or how to fix? Would appreciate the help. Thank you!

    Hey, Kelso,.

    There are a few things to try, that might turn back to normal settings.

    In display settings, try to change the option of colors up to medium (16 bit) and see if that makes a difference. Change to when. You can also change the resolution settngs. Sometimes just by changing the settings can fix the little quirks.

    Have you tried to update video card driver? If this isn't the case, that give a try. You can use the automatic update via the Device Manager, or just go on display card manufacturer's website and download the latest version of the driver.

    Hope that helps!

"computer is a dell desktop computer and is about six years old, but I regularly updated and try to"keep a tidy ship.
    I hope someone can help
    or if I've lost games can I download a version of freecell, who has an option to restart game
    Thank you

    The system restore solved my problem and after that I had to do it AGAIN today, I went to Windows Update and changed the settings so that the updates would not automatically download and install on my computer.  It is certainly a problem with one of the Microsoft updates.  I just hope that they recognize that one and let us know as soon as POSSIBLE!  I'll be very selective on what updates, I am hosting in the future!

  • Screen black with visible only mouse - SafeMode or normal won't start.

    When I turn on my computer, all I get after the dell screen is a black screen with only the mouse visible. The mouse moves. I ran the diagnostic test Fn/F8 and everything comes back normal. I have the data I prefer not to lose. I tried normal and safe mode and all I get is the black screen.


    Hi Arborne,

    Are a. When you facing this problem?

    B. recent changes made on your computer?

    C. do you receive any error when starting?

    I recommend these steps.

    Step 1

    Startup Repair is a Windows Vista recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as system files missing or damaged that may prevent Windows from starting correctly. When you run the Startup Repair, it scans your computer for the problem and then tries to fix it so that your computer can start correctly.

    1 boot from theDVD
    2. Select the language
    3. click on "repair your computer" on the install now screen
    4. click Next in the System Recovery Options screen
    5. click on Startup Repair
    6 follow the instructions on the screen.

    Restart the computer and see if you manage to boo on the desktop. If the problem persists, try Method 2.

    See this link for more information.
    Startup Repair

    If this step does not help then try step 2.

    Step 2

    Perform a system restore on your computer offline.

    1 boot from the DVD
    2. Select the language
    3. click on "Repair your computer" on the install now screen
    4. click Next in the System Recovery Options screen
    5. click on system restore.
    6. choose the date that you want to restore

  • Screen on Satellite C series is black with white writing


    I need help, I've only had the phone for a few weeks so still to get used to it. (first computer).
    It was working fine but now I have a black screen and all the writing is white and yellow.

    Either I or my children have touched something we shouldn't have, it still works very well that the screen is annoying
    and not all icons appear.

    Also need help with a printer to use with this laptop, which is best to use.

    Thanks for any help you can give me Jo.

    > It was working fine but now I have a black screen and all the writing is white and yellow.

    Please don t be angry with me, but your description isn't very useful.
    First you don t say anything on your laptop model and the system you are using.

    Secondly you said something about white and yellow writing on the black screen, where did you see that?
    It is not by using special software such as Microsoft Office Word?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Blackberry 9900 Bold startup screen 75% and white after.

    Hello forum!

    I have a problem with my Blackberry 9900 Bold. I have looked everywhere on the internet and found what my problem is: JVM errors. The only problem is that none of these solutions worked, solutions that have been published 4 to 2 years ago.

    Whenever I put in the battery and the phone turns on it loads up to about 75%, then apears white screen and stays like that for days. I tried to do an OS 7.0 to 7.1 upgrade, but after erasing data from the application loader when you try to start the JAVA virtual machine, it does not. I tried to connect to BBSAK, JL_CMDER and BBMCP, the only problem is that it is not connected, only for the application loader. Yes, I deleted Vendor.XML common files > Research In Motion. Every step that I found on the internet that it has been tested. My only question now is to obtain the identified BB JL_CMDER, BBSAK or BBMCP so that I can finally do a full erase.

    So please, dear forum users, if you have new information since 2013 I'm more than willing to test it and it works thankfully we.


    Correction problem of the white screen: use 9900_7_0Fast_Installers nuke the phone, then wipe it off. After that use your Application Loader after you delete the two files from the seller (there are thousands of threads on the files of the Application Loader and the seller).

    Here are the steps, if you have any other questions which answers are not yet available on the internet, feel free to reply to this message.

    See you soon!

  • HP Pavilion dv4 screen black 1428dx / refuses to start up

    I have problems with my laptop (HP Pavilion dv4 1428dx) the last thing I did was paused, then cameback and tried to wake him up but it would not start up. All the lights are on, but the screen is black and the only thing that I hear the fan moving. The caps lock and num lock keys have a light flashing, not really sure what it means. The power light, battery light comes on, but the hard drive LED is not on. This computer is nearly 3 years old and I've never had a major problem like this until recently. If anyone has a solution that I'd be happy to appreciate them.

    Thank you for your time,


    The blink codes State caps lock/caps lock Num because it might be just the caps, just the number lock lock, or both.  If both blink, then it counts as a blink every time.

    If it flashes once and a break of 3 or 4 seconds, then tells the CPU POST test failed.  A processor failure usually requires a new processor, but some have been able to open Notepad for reinstall process and apply new thermal paste to get the problem resolved.

    If it is under warranty, I would advise you contact HP for service.

    If it is out of warranty, then I would contact HP to get a quote and compare that to the cost of a local PC shop to weigh your options.

    Hi osterjo,

    1. When did you start to question?

    2. you remember to make changes to the computer before this problem?

    I suggest to start the computer in safe mode and check if it works very well.

    To boot to the desktop in safe mode keep tapping key F8 during restart. Once you see the option to start in safe mode select and press to enter.

  • Satellite C850D-10W - upgrade screen, black Win10, bios not start

    Hi all

    I have a Toshiba two years C850D-10W, which came with Win7 Premium. After several months of flashing notice suggesting to upgrade to Win10, I decided to give it a go. I was stupid enough to not not to check if my phone would support these updates, and I have not discovered too late that it would not be on the official website.

    This subject happened is that during the installation process, to halfway through (maybe 43%) I got a message saying that the system should reboot several times. The problem is, it never exceeded the stadium to restart, and the system is now in a loop by which underscore fixed unblinking appears in the upper left corner and stays there for about five seconds. Then the system restarts and underscore appears again, and so on for ever, no logo Toshiba, no chance to select Safe Mode, nothing. I can enter the BIOS menu and I tried to boot the system from the backup DVD I did when I bought the computer so I could go back to Windows 7 but it does not work, the system just does not recognize. The HARD drive is fine, I got out and opened it on another computer as if it were an external hard drive and all the files are still there, but I can't do anything else.

    Any help would be much apprectiated, thanks a lot
