Hi,

This may or may not help, but, we have to start somewhere. Reboot, watch for the "enter setup option" (F? button). You in DOS environment now. Navigate to windows boot/startup options, choose safe mode, reboot. Once your os is up go immediately to -start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date option before problem existed and click next/OK. Sit back and wait for system to do its stuff. If by chance it boots up in safe mode after this exercise is completed you can go back into DOS and choose normal boot.

ACER not booting up, safe mode message, blank screen


possibly you can remove the hard drive and connect it to another computer and access it that way, just connect it and boot the computer as normal if the drive is not corrupted you should be able to access it and save files such as pictures and documents to the other computer if he's wanting to save installed programs he is out of luck unless he has downloaded and saved the installer file or .exe cause installed files and programs can not be saved.

Blank screen after boot splash screen


Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

I installed 2GB of Crucial memory on my Dell XPS 400 (In slots 3 and 4), but when I rebooted the computer, it booted up but then nothing - blank screen. I tried removing the new memory and again same thing...


Did you wear a anti-static wrist band when you replaced the memory? Or did you werag gloves?
Please note that you should never touch computer memory with your bare hands, because it can discharge the memory.
Thankfully the chance is very small.

Another thing could be that the memory is not placed right. It has to fit right in the slots.

If you boot up with the old memory do you also get a blank screen? If no, then probably the speed is different. (Please check if it is 533, 677, 800 mhz, or different

Power on emachine T6420 and moniter is blank. The moniter soon loses contact with the computer. The fan run and power is OK there is no beep code.


If you mean after the computer performs the self test the screen goes blank and stays blank, eventually turning off you are having a hard drive problem. When the computer boots you should see an E-Machines logo and/or a self test on the screen. That is done by the motherboard as part of every boot up. After that the motherboard passes control to your boot device and loads your operating system. If your computer stops booting at that point, your boot device is not working properly. That could be caused by many things - virus, hardware failure, power outage. If you really mean you see nothing at all on the screen when you press the power button your computer simply is not working at all. Open the case, blow all the dust out of it and reseat all components you can, then try again.
