What is your system brand and model?

Laptop or desktop?

What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

He has already worked or if it never worked?

If it's still 30 minutes, I would check the Power Options that control the behavior of your system after a period of inactivity and how to wake him when he goes to a configurable idle state (move the mouse, click the mouse, press a button, etc.).

  • Try to install Windows Vista. When the system starts, I get a black screen with no message and no prompt.

    before starting up the plant, black screen

    A friend gave me the laptop since they bought a new.  I tried to do a clean install of Windows Vista on a laptop Gateway P6831 FX.  After changing the boot order in the bios settings, the dvd starts to spin.  The only thing that appears on the screen is a screen black/Bank.  I'm never invited with the message 'Press any key to start the installation' to start copying the files for vista.

    The Bios recognizes the hard drive (Sata).  I don't know what to do at this point.  Help, please.

    I fixed it.  I looked at a few other responses in this forum and used the SATA drivers during the installation of Windows XP.  After that, I've upgraded to Vista.

  • You can save a broken computer? My computer does NOT start after the blue hp screen.

    In the past months, my computer has been the object of a freezing randomly, and Ctrl + Alt + Delete does not work. I stopped him via the power button. Sometimes, when I start it again, the computer moniter shows nothing but a black screen and the computer sounds different when it starts normally. When this happens, I turn it off again hit the left side of the desktop and turn on again. Whenever I do this, the computer starts normally, and I go on the computer use.

    Yesterday morning, after a break of 2 days, acess my computer and it is random freezing thing once again. I force close down as one normally do, and the computer does not start and displays the same black screen and the same fan/air weird sound. I stopped him and I hit the side RIGHT this time, I think and when I turn on the computer, the usual blue HP screen appears with the establishment, boot, diagnostics and system recovery things. HOWEVER, after this screen, a black screen will appear with this weird blue symbol on the upper left corner, I have never seen this and it looks like a circle with a triangle and a Pentagon below and it remains essentially on this screen forever. When I try to hit the establishment, boot, diagnostics and the shortcuts to system recovery, on the lower left side of the screen, it says "Menu boot loading...". ' or whatever the shortcut of loading represents, but nothing ever happens. When I press the other keys, this tapping noise comes from the computer at each tap of the keyboard.

    I have no idea what to do, and at this point, my first priority is to save important files on the computer. Does anyone know what is the problem? I want her more than a problem of system rather than a virus problem because refusing the boot black screen thing lasts for years. My computer is 3-4 years. I enclose a sketch of what looks like the weird symbol.

    MY COMPUTER WORKS NOW!

    With the flash drive, I was able to access the BIOS, which before, I couldn't.

    Eventually my computer was in some strange sort of lockdown setting, I switched it back to activate and now its work! I remember save important things in the future. Thank you very much for your help!

  • Windows Vista starts with only a black screen with the mouse pointer.

    Saturday, 02/27/10, I left my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1405 E) because I used Studio to produce a couple of videos.  When I got up in the morning, he himself had closed.  I tried to put on normally, and he said: recovery error windows, then on lists: Launch Startup Repair tool and start windows normally.  I tried to do a repair, but it just comes back to the same screen.  When I try to boot normally, it shows the progress on the background as usual bar, but then he comes up to a black screen with a mouse pointer.  When I run one of the many diagnostic tests, it is said that the BIOS cannot find the operating system loader.  I'm pretty adept at computers, but nothing I've tried before reinstalling Vista works.  I have files that I need to keep it on the computer, and only a few of them are saved.  Please help me soon, as I need for my school musical production on Thursday.

    Hello

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

    Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure)
    is CTRL + ALT + DEL and the processes tab find EXPLORER.exe and END PROCESS on it.
    then on the tab Applications - lower right - new task - the type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is
    accessible 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 hotfix is usually a hit or miss
    base. That there is no information on a black screen as there is just a blue screen
    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 of efforts.

  • My Mac mini end of 2012 does not start: stuck at the total black screen

    Thus,.

    I tried to install Windows 8 with bootcamp using a USB key. It did not work ("" can not do a new partition on this disk or some * like that "") but this, I'm sure that has not affected my install OS X, I've never been format the Bootcamp partition.

    So, I leave the Windows installation program, reboot and remove the USB key. Now, I get the black screen that OSX shows when it has no OS, giving me the impression that he wiped / corrupted installation.

    Very well...

    But there is a twist. I can not hold option to join the boot device selector, nor can I press CMD + R or retrieve internet. Metal target does not work. I have reset the NVRAM successfully a few times, but it start always black.

    I am using a wired keyboard and mouse. I tried to use external SuperDrive with a CD player. As well as USB. I'm lost and I'm an experienced technician, and I admit that I am an iSheep. Then Yes.

    Thank you.

    (And I didn't get any update of third party other than an SSD, which worked well for centuries)

    EDIT: and I reset the SMC EDIT 2: I know also that this probably isn't a hardware problem, I am positive my OS X install and the OS X recovery partition are corrupt. I don't understand why I can't hold option, and I don't understand why the recovery of the internet does not work when you have no recovery partition. I would be grateful if I could start anything, without having to open my Mac.

    are a few others.

    You can save your files by putting the drive in another computer as a 2nd disk (best) or external

    Of course a real store of the computer or the manufacturer of your system can help to recover the files.

  • G10 - 133 started booting with a black screen

    Hello

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a problem I have.
    About 3 months ago my G10 starts with a black screen startup. I can hear the sound and all qosmio logo. Just impossible to see anything. So, I pushed FN + F5 and it would show the windows xp loading screen. But when it is started in windows. It would be a very low resolution display. So I have to change or push the tv out button twice and it would auto resets.
    I was in the bios and changed the beginning of the analogue lcd + rgb display and which will show that during the boot process, but continues to be carried out in low resolution windows.
    And if I plug in an external monitor, the two, they just empty.
    I tried to re-complete installs, qosmio Player re - install. NVIDIA driver, hotkey utility, display change. But still nowt.

    Someone at - it had similar problems? And if yes, could you remedy this?

    Yes, I had this earlier on my G10 and this was the beginning of more serious problems. The machine has started to behave more strangely, and it has gotten worse over time, insofar as it would lock up when you watch DVDs and qosmioplayer software has stopped working completely.

    I don't know if you have the same problem, but I took for Toshiba technicians and machine ended up going back to them for an overhaul of the system board. = problem solved.

    Oddly enough, one of my friends has had exactly the same problem and went through the same process to return the machine; I don't know if it is a problem that affects all G10s!

  • Re: Satellite A300D-13 has: problems starting - starts not or only black screen

    Hello, I have a Satellite A300D-13 has and the problem is, when I try to start the laptop for most, he tries to boot from the hard drive or the DVD drive but then he just stops and starts again immediately to do the same. In this case 4 or 5 times. Once it seems that it starts well, but the only thing I see is a black screen. And the keyboard does not work either.

    If I try several time with closing by pressing the power button (you know who I mean), I managed it starts normally (but such a situation is always annoying). Moreover, it seems that this happens only when I did use the laptop for a while. So maybe it has something to do with the temperature. But more or less 20 ° C in my room.

    In the Bios I have change the boot order of the sources (I can't change it much more)

    I am grateful for any kind of help.
    Thank you for your cooments in advance

    Hello

    The issue could be related to software, but also for the hardware problem.
    But first, we have to check if it s a software problem.

    You are using the original operating system preinstalled by Toshiba. Is this good?
    AFAIK the most recent series of laptop is equipped with HARD drive recovery option.
    In this case, the Toshiba Recovery DVD has not been delivered with the laptop but there is an option to create a.
    HARD drive recovery option can be used to reinstall and update the operating system.
    I would recommend to repair the operating system and reinstall it again by pressing the F8 key. The Advanced Startup menu should appear and then you must choose to repair your computer.

    This option will start the recovery procedure and the BONES to relocate again.
    Please check if a new facility will improve the situation with Notepad.
    In addition, it would be desirable to update the BIOS, if a newer version of the BIOS is available on the European driver Toshibas page.

    If this suggestion won't help you then whole notebooks material must be check by a local ASP.
