How to get a computerto boot when it only has a black screen

Hello there everybody
Have you ever turned on your computer and hear that it was booting but all you got is a black screen and nothing else?
Well here is a simple tip that i have used on literally hundreds of support calls
(1) First when this happens power down the computer.
(2) unplug the computer from the wall and remove the power cord from the computer.
(3). open up the case of the computer.
(4). find the wires from the power supply going to the mother board
and remove it from the mother board.
(5) now press in on the button that u use to turn on the computer for
20 seconds this allows for the ESD to be released , if you have a
reset button do the same for this button too.
(6). replace the power supply cord onto the motherboard and plug in
the power cord back into the computer
(7) plug in the computer and start up the computer .


Now you should be good to go the reason that this
Happens is that Esd builds up in the system and overtime it will
prevent the monitor from displaying. but once the esd has been
discharged the (PROPER) WAY then it is taken care of ok

I hope this tip helps you all out
Best regards Michael

The screen boots up with the commands and then it


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after booting, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.
