How do i fix the black screen of ***** on my windows vista?

The problem is not the fix, the problem is finding out which problem of many possibilities is causing the the black screen.
This requires some troubleshooting.
I assume you are using a PC.
The first step is to turn on the monitor first.
Make sure the power on indicator LED on the monitor comes on.
Then boot the PC. Make sure the CPU fan comes on inside the PC.
(If you are running a laptop and the screen is always black, it is usually the flexible cable joining the screen to the main body has broken. A hardware problem)
Does anything show up on the screen?

If no, check the CPU cooler inside the PC.
If it is plugged up with dust and lint, you may have a burned out CPU that will have to be replaced. (A lack of cooling air causes the CPU to overheat and fail when the safety does not work. A common problem.)

If yes, get a Linux boot CDROM/DVD, boot on the Linux CDROM/DVD, and follow the instructions to run CLAM antivirus under Linux.
When the screen goes black during boot, and stays black, the problem is usually a "Root Kit" virus.
You can not remove these viruses with a normal Windows antivirus program. They are too deeply embedded in the system.

This is the start of the troubleshooting procedure.
You really need somebody "on-site" to troubleshoot a problem that is this complex.

Black screen

Have you zapped the p-ram? Hold Apple, Option, P and R keys when you hear the chime. Wait for four more chimes and release.
Try "detect displays" from display preferences. In system preferences, displays, be sure brightness control is turned up.

My Gateway zx4800 booted this morning to a black screen with one window stating, "Personalizing Windows Media Player". It stayed that way for an hour. Ctl Alt Del finally let me select Task...

Good Day,
As I see it, the OS which is Windows 7 has automatic updates turned on, thus Windows Media Player has also been updated. If you have quitted or stopped the installation or "personalizing Windows" it may have this effect of slowing your system down.
To fix this you may restore the system at least a day before it bogged down.(boot into safe mode first) after which see the results, and let it re-update, and let it finish shall it show that screen again. Depending on your system configuration, Windows Media Player setup may take a while.Just be patient.
Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya.

No screen

MOST likely the monitor is bad if you don't hear any beeps when booting up.

If you unplug the monitor the screen should say NO SIGNAL
