Black screen When switched on the screen is black. The computer is used by my son and I don't think he has been fiddling with the BIOS set up or any thing. Suggestions anyone?

Turns on but black screen


Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.

If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.

Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.

If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

Benq monitor black bar


you monitor has an Auto Config button, push it. Or go into the screen menu (buttons on monitor) and find the auto setting there. If that doesn't work, check your display properties and make sure you desktop is set to the same size as you computer screen.

My 5640 will not boot no signal to moniter or key board canot use recovery disc hard drive still running it was running then I got the black screen


Well, sounds like bad luck for you. No, seriously, could you have gotten a virus? We can get you out of this, but it will take a little fiddling inside your computer.
Take the skin off the system. Look for where your Hard Drive is mounted, usually above or below the Floppy drive ( if you have one ). Pull out the 4 pin DC connector going into your hard drive - it has red, Yellow, black and orange for SATA drives and red black black yellow for IDE drives. Fire up your computer and boot from CD or DVD. Go through your BIOS setup if you must.
From boot, do not say you want to reformat or anything nasty, just try to look around your bios screen for anything weird. You can plug in your SATA drive hot if you want, to see if it will spin up and show data on C: Write me back when you have done these steps.

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

There may wrong setting of refresh rate. Most monitors work at 60 to 70 Hz refresh rate. Above that they tunned blank screen or out 0f range message displayed. Also check the output video signal. Please confirm technical specifications from the documentatation of the monitor.
