Windows Vista - white screen

Original title: David

I have windows vista installed on my pc and after the latest updates to microsoft my monitor stuck on a white screen on startup upward.

As the screen is blank I can't access settings,

At a loss, what to do, thanks in advance to anyone who can help.


Hi #aakkam , since you were the only one to answer my question, I thought it's only fair to let you know what was the fault!   (It was the monitor) I swapped it for the wife monitor and hay presto my pc was perfect without any abandonment of the black screen, I ordered a new monitor today, so thank you once again for your help.

  • 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!

  • Window remains white screen after starting windows screen. the system hangs after Mup.sys on safe mode

    The title pretty much everything said.

    The problem occurred on a fault that Dell Vostro 2510 with the additional option should only do the downgrade of Win Xp (from Vista).  As noted, on normal startup, the system will remain in a blank screen after the Windows Xp "loading" screen.  And on safe mode, it will join Mup.sys and then hang there.

    The closest thing that I got from a web search was a thread in forum saying that the official info from Microsoft was that it was a question of Win Xp/motherboard ( halfway to a post by Bobb Fwed).  The poster provided no link, so I don't know how official his info was really.

    Thank you

    Contact the Dell Support under conditions of your warranty or Service contract. I suspect that you look at a clean install of Windows here. Good luck! ~ Robear Dyer (PA Bear) ~ MS MVP (that is to say, mail, security, Windows & Update Services) since 2002 ~ WARNING: MS MVPs represent or work for Microsoft

    Please run this test to find out which driver is causing the problem.

  • Windows Vista blue screen RANDOM (-_-)

    I was working at an individual (who will remain nameless) with their computer. Suddenly, unexpectedly, the screen went away and came back with a blue screen! You know where it says 'PAGED_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA '? Nothing has been shown here, and no file name is specified. He did a memory dump, and I still have to study. It is an old system used for web browsing only...

  • Is it possible to display a dialog box with the fields/custom controls for the Windows Vista login screen to the top.


    In Windows XP (prior to Windows Vista), a Service could be interactive and display a window/dialog on the login screen.

    Of course services are no longer allowed to be interactive, and certainly, I agree that it is an improvement in security.

    However, say if I wanted to do one of the following values, which is possible (and how to implement). I don't mind what language I have to set in.

    (1) add a button in the login screen that says "Reset Password" which will then invite a form with questions of security.

    (2) run an application within the login window

    Really appreciate any help on this matter,

Before my computer became like this, I had no virus on my computer and was not installed and drivers.

  • After restoring my system to Windows Vista, my screen resolution is incorrect.

    Screwed up resolution :(

    I had to restore my computer to Windows vista after putting 7 window on it... now my screen resolution is turned off, it is the top of the screen to the bottom, but has 2 black bars on the sides... Ive already tried to settle the reso to max, but this isn't the problem. Help

    Apparently, that's what to do, another great problem, I can't get my internet to work at all, it says there is no network, I can't spend all the discovery network on or anything, and I have NO idea where the original disc is provided with the computer :( Hating technology now

    You have a computer that works (obviously).  You probably have a USB stick/thumb drive/CD or DVD, you can use and a way to write, huh?  Something like that?

    Get what you need to the manufacturer of the computer support and the web page of the driver of your make & model of computer (that you try to fix) while on this computer to work and put these files on the mentioned media.  That put media into the computer you try to set and use the programs installation either him or copy them to the desktop of the computer in question and install from there.

  • Windows Vista blue screen

    Hi, I hope someone can help me! I have a Dell XPS (410, I believe) running under Windows Vista and commissioning, I get this message on a blue screen:

    A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is installed correctly. If it is a new installation, ask your hardware manufacturer or software, the Windows updates, you might need.

    If this problem persists, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable the BIOS memory options such as implementing caching or shading. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe mode.

    Technical information:
    STOP: 0X0000C1F5 (0X00000000, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

    First of all, I have not installed new hardware or software. The only thing I can think is that maybe Windows has installed an update and it broke.  I tried to reboot in safe mode and get the same error message, so I can't really do anything. I also tried startup repair and which does nothing.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


    Its average you have to reinstall the windows or your system restore factory.

    You can install parallel to windows vista.

    Note: In a parallel installation, you won't lose your data, but in the factory restore, you lose.

  • 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.

    Here's a video of one of them.

    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
