Windows Vista black screen after startup


I have a pc HP G60 with Windows Vista. After the updated pc, I couldn't use Google Chrome (it crashed and said 'Whoa Google Chrome has stopped working') after reading a few posts, I decided to restore the pc. So once I did this it worked fine. The next day Chrome stopped working again and not so my Mozilla Firefox (it says THAT XPCOM is not found) and I think it was because as I closed the previous night there are more updates running on the computer. So I restored around 4 or 5 times and the last time I have done that and restarted the computer, that he was really a lot of time with a black with just the mouse screen shows so I shut it down by pressing the power down button (bad I know). Now, whenever I turn it on, you can see the Windows loading screen with the small bars at the bottom and then there is a black screen with white text, requesting that the operating mode (safe mode, normal mode, etc.) and then after I decided to use it says loading files or something like that in the white text then just a bunch of names to run it on the screen. However, after that then it goes to a black screen with only the mouse showing. Someone knows how to fix this? I tried pressing the f8 key and I tried pressing the power button for 30 seconds without energy sources and put into market as Sigma_08 says in this post:


and the CTRL ALT DEL, but it still does not work. Is there something I can do? D:

* I tried all modes (normal, security) on the start screen (it opens with this screen every time since I closed it the wrong way.

Hello! Thanks for the help! I have not tried, but because it turned out that I was pressing f8 at the wrong time, then tried again before the windows logo showed on the screen and was able to use the Repair Options and then system restore and this time he solved the problem! Thank you again for taking time to answer and the link!

  • Help with Windows Vista black screen

    I have a Windows Vista SP1 64 bit with 8 GB of RAM and 2 3850's Radeon ATi CrossFireX. in any case, I have a program called mechanical system, you've all probably heard before, this is an excellent program to clean your hard disk and defragment your memory. However, I ran last night and said the program automatically restarts the computer when it ended, after that he finished and I rebooted was greeted with the atrocious Black Screen of Death with a cursor, if it is not blinking and I can move it freely, but there is nothing I can do with it given the background task bar is non-existent and the entire screen is black.

    I tried some of the solutions, I can not even the CTRL + ALT + DELETE to get into task manager and manually start explorer.exe; Help me please. The only type of response I can get from the system is to obtain the keys to stick to pop up when I hit the SHIFT key five times. I am very confused. I don't have external hard drives hooked up to it and there is no thumb-drive connected via USB either. I'm completely puzzled here. Please help me.


    System Mechanic, by Iolo is one of the best of this type of program, he's trying to at least
    be legitimate, however it is still a Registry Cleaner and system optimizer that leaves a
    much to be desired in terms of compatibility. These programs are more likely to ask questions
    While fixing anything. Most are like snake oil. So my advice would be to uninstall. If you insist
    use make sure you have done a current Restore Point before using it and keep current backups
    on the primary drive.


    No saving necessary data and re-installing Windows Vista might be the best option, but here
    are a few others.

    You can save your files by putting the drive in another computer as a 2nd disk (best) or external
    Drive USB enclosure and then backup to removable media such as CD, DVD or other USB drives.
    Of course a real store of the computer or the manufacturer of your system can help to recover the files.

    Or you can use a boot Ubuntu CD to back up data.

    Use Ubuntu Live CD to backup files from your Windows computer dead


    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.

    A method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure) is CTRL +.
    ALT + DELETE - Manager tasks and tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - and then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is available by
    repeatedly tapping F8 as you start. CTRL + SHIFT + ESC also begins the Task Manager.

    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.

  • Corrupt BIOS V5 531 Acer black screen after startup, f2 and f12 also. Repairable?


    Yesterday I tried to install Win 7 if I could play D & D Neverwinter on Arc after using * nix systems study (looking to start a career as an administrator). I had plugged into a power strip that was, unbeknownst to me, turned off and I went to make coffee and watch some news. When I came back to check the progress of my laptop was powered off and since then I havn't been avle start without being blocked at a black screen after the start page of the bios. The f2 and f12 also leads to a black screen, I can not change the boot device or enter the bios Setup.

    Is - fixable at all? For example, is the a key-combo, I can use it to restore from a backup bios? Or, do I have to bring in a technician who can install a new chip bios or flash this old some how? Or did I brick pemanently my device?

    V1.22 is what you want to be part of a unit of Windows 7.

    The problem is if it crashed during the upgrade process, it will take some special tools clearly on the chip on the MB and recharge it with a new BIOS. I would contact your local support team to see what options are available.

  • Windows 8 black screen after Login or the wake from sleep / hibernate and flickering screen


    I have something of a nightmare with my desktop computer running Windows 8 x 64.

    I did a bit of cleaning, unplug all cables, etc. and then reconnected everything later.

    Since then, I've known the following questions: -.

    After starting and going through the connection, I am faced with a black screen.  The monitor turns on, but there is no pointer.  However, if I clicked at random, it would open a Windows App out of the splash screen, which would then become visible.  If I moved the mouse to the bottom left, to get the splash screen, he would immediately go black screen on me.  He seemed to be refusing to display the splash screen.

    With "display" black screen, I found I could get the Task Manager (Ctrl, Alt, Del) upward and there could access the desktop.  It would then execute as usual, but if I let it go into hibernation or even just having the power of the screen down, it would be black screen again, and I have to use the 'trick' Task Manager to retrieve the desktop computer.

    Sometimes, using the Manager tasks does not always, because he'll sweep between the black screen and the desktop, alternating every 5-6 seconds.  I found through the process from the Task Manager, it stops doing this.

    Now, I did a Windows 8 regenerate, without any change in the problems.  I made sure the AMD drivers have been completely updated (they were) and also physically checked all cables and cables are properly connected and the GPU / RAM etc are properly placed.

    There is no error message displayed at any time. I have also disabled Fast Boot, nothing helps.

    I examined a faulty monitor, but it worked fine for an hour or two at a time, until I got let go sleep or put into hibernation, and I'm at square one.  It would of course be a faulty GPU, or even a PSU failure, but I'm not convinced the symptoms are pointing to them.

    For me, the fact it does not display the Windows 8 start screen after that Login or Wake Up is important.  It makes me think that Windows may interfere with the display in some way?

    I can, if necessary, provide DXDIAG etc, and I "m hoping someone will have an idea of what goes wrong.  I have spent ages going through Google and others, but cannot find a solution to my problem.

    Thanks for any help or suggestion you may have.


    It solved!  Traded my monitor cable and all problems solved.  Guess he had a break or something in one of the lines.

    Thanks anyway.
  • Black screen after startup for 30 sec as if my network is enabled.

    So my problem is that I mentioned above. If I disable my router with its button to completely close and bad to start the computer, my PC starts in 5-7 seconds.

  • Computer now put in hibernation, Vista will not boot. Computer stuck on black screen after startup. Help?

    I put my computer on 'Hibernate' when I went to bed. When I woke up, I started the computer learned to manufacturer (HP) computer screen introduction as usual, but windows doesn't not load afterwards, as he usually does: I just get a black screen. Lights supply and all the rest are on. Just nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Can I use the firmware from HP (I guess that's what it is) to confirm that my memory and hard drive are very good. I tried Googling the problem, and some signs indicate a problem with the powercfg parameter. I can't get in cmd.exe to reset because I can't get into windows (although through HP firmware, I can enter in "Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe - cmd", which seems the same, but the orders that I see offered on websites do not seem to work - help?). Ditto with Safe Mode. I don't have Vista installation disc.

  • Vista black screen after the loading bar

    I have the problem that I am assuming that almost all users of Windows Vista have probably experiences - the black screen with the white cursor lonely after the loading bar 'Microsoft Corporation'. Here are the steps that I tried to solve the problem, but have not yet worked:

    • With the help of "last known good configuration" brings back me to the screen and the white slider
    • Go into safe mode which brings back me to the screen and the cursor
    • Activate the video mode low resolution which brings back me to the black screen and a cursor
    • Using Ctrl + SHIFT + ESC to appear during the black screen Task Manager
    • CTRL + Alt + Delete does not work on the black screen
    • I do not have access to the installation CD, as it was preinstalled on the computer

    Yes, as usual, what happened after a windows update - I really should stop waiting for something good to these updates.

    I'm under the original version of Vista Home Premium without service pack - these caused a similar problem, but at least I was able to return the system restore.

    Thank you in advance, I know how useful these forums can be.

    Yes, a new installation of Windows 7 was the way for me. Lucky he composed a back all my documents, however. Thanks for the help all. Unfortunately I have no where near more closely to solve the problem, then when I started.

  • Home Premium Vista black screen at startup

    original title: reboot of Vista Ultimate

    Bought a HP pavilion dv4 (notebook) last year.  "Problem is that when I opened (tension), appears first the hp, second black screen logo, then a message" Windows is loading files "which appeared twice then go to the black screen & then to the logo of hp again.

    Hard drive test passed as well as the other test (memory, etc.).  Any suggestions how to solve this problem? Thank you

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    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:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

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

  • Windows 7 black screen at startup

    When I turn on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx) all that I get is a black screen. No runner, not pointer, no logo nothing. It's my first fight of firearms with the black screen and the time is that ask for help of media. To resolve this problem started with some basic research. Wow! What is a problem, a big mess and how it out! Well, that's another question, on the point. In the reading of the issues it covers that starts the computer and load the operating system as usual then goes black after log in. These people have two advantages, they can re-boot, tap the c, rap out F - 8, choose Safe mode, where so hope lies in the support at an earlier date or direct resources to solve the problem or change the boot order allowing them to use the restoration, repair or driver updates. a very good start. The answer should be somewhere in there. What I've tried is to unplug the power cord, remove the battery and then pressing the button power for 30 to 60 seconds. Remove and replace the ram. At this stage, I tried the following: leave the battery, plug in the power cord and press the power button / stop of the laptop. Another tested method was. Given the power drained, reinstall the battery, insert the power cord and press the power button. I also tried out of respect for the power switch in the lid of the laptop by lifting up a few degrees, 10%, 30% and so on. I bore you with these details, we have so go beyond and actually solve this problem. Can you help me?

    Moved from Vista Performance and Maintenance Forum.


    "When I turn on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx) all that I get is a black screen. "No runner, no pointer, No logo nothing"

    If when you start there is no splash screen (HP Logo), etc., you have a hardware problem.

    If under warranty, contact HP support.

    If it is not under warranty, contact a local computer and reputable repair shop.
