Black screen after windows xp startup screen

I have a Dell GX240 1.93ghz Intel celeron running XP sp2 with a ati radon 9200 128mg video card 60 gig HD. It was running reasonably well.... Until a week ago. It now boots past the windows startup then hangs with a black screen and mouse pointer. I have tried to repair the windows installation; I have removed and replaced various components(ie video card for on board, wireless adapter, ethernet adapter, none boot HD etc) to no avail. I have even did a manual system restore(as outlined by MS knowledge base) from the Recovery Console and it will not recover. Any Ideas?

Thanks

    Techgem,



    I tried your Bios process however the system still stops after safe mode spash screen comes up(where you have OS ver info at the top and safe mode on bottom corners). But only the mouse shows and I can not do any other interaction. When I went into the Bios there is no default it is only the Dell standard info.

Hi Topdarr,

How are you?

I have read your posted problem and would like to give you few suggestions.

1. Start your PC and start pressing F2, F10, DELETE or the The Key assigned for your PC BIOS, you can find that on your PC Screen.

2. Once you enter in the BIOS press F9 to make your BIOS to it's default settings.

Alternatively you can navigate to Exit menu and move UP and Down With Arrow keys and select load default settings.

3. Now press F10 key to save your settings or select Save Settings & Exit .

Your PC will reboot after exit.

4. Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:

To go into safe mode -- Press F8 key as soon as the pc restarts.

(You will have do it again if pc starts in normal mode.)

On the black screen >>> LAST GOOD KNOWN CONFIGURATION.

Press enter Key Twice to boot your PC.

Please let me know the result.

Install Win XP SP 2


Yes you can, Do I recomend it, no, Why?

Windows easily uses up to 756MB of RAM to run the O/S alone but can run at a minimum of 512MB.

I have personally seen it run on as low as a 900Mhz processor, 256MB of RAM and on a 10 gig hard drive.

If you decide to install windows XP on the specs you describe above please note the following.

1. System will be very slow and have lengthy start up times.

2. Applications may crash or take a long time to open.

3. With all the updates for WinXP you will easily use 8 gigs for installing XP and its updates. Not to mention whatever software you will use/install.

4. On a system with those low specs, you probably have a low end video card whcih may result in: A. chooppy windows, screen freezing, system crashes and lock ups, low video graphics all around.


I would probably go with windows 2000 instead. If your bent on having XP, at least upgrade the RAM to as much as possible. Then install windows and only install the programs you really need, remove any other junk.

Hope this is of some help to you, good luck

Viewsonic vp912b lcd display will not work.no DVI


Yes you can but there should be an option in the monitor settings for DVI... Maybe if you go into safe mode and attempt adjusting settings for the ati for the dvi output, from what I hear that monitor is nice with the DVI option would be aa shame to lose that.

Hi have tried everything!! my windows media player 10 will not recognise my intel celeron d inside driver for windows xp, what do i do??? im not that experienced, but have tried everything!


The Intel Celeron D Inside Driver? Windows XP is designed for the Intel Celeron Processor and does not require a driver. Window Media Player 10 however requires a valid copy of Windows XP with SP2... If you go to the Windows Update website it should upgrade your PC and the version of Media Player for you.

ATI Radeon X1650 PIC-E


My guess is you don't have enough power to get the best performance out of the card. Obviously you have enough power to get a display but under load it is having a bit of trouble.

Upgrade your PSU to 500W or more, should solve your problem.

Hi there What driver did you use? It seems to be a driver issue. Try using the generic driver of Windows and start a restore point from there. then use your CD Driver provided from the Card's Manufacturer. ============================== Hope this helps. Let me know OK?
