Question about MSI RS482M4-ILD Motherboard

1 Answer

Random black screens, during bios config, boot, windows.

My gf computer has been causing problems recently. For about 2 weeks, at what appears to be random times, the computer will just halt, stop working, I don't know what to call it. The screen goes black, but the monitor doesn't say, 'check connection'. The computer is still running, keyboard lights are on, and its making sounds, but no response from anything. I thought it could be software related (virus, malware), but this happens while running dos utilites, bios config. It's looking like some hardware problem, but I can't track it down. I've ran memtest-86, it doesn't finish, but it doesn't reset at the same point each time. I've removed 1 of the sticks of ram, then swaped for the other, still no difference. The computer has integrated ATI X200 express video, amd k8 athlon 64 proc, 1G ram, XP sp2 with newest ati drivers. I'm ran out of tests, can someone please help? ~Jerry

It is a very good chance that it is a video card issue as you said that you can still hear the sound, i mean the sound of windows starting if that is the case then need to get a video card and installif the motheboard doesn't have a AGP slot then get a pci video card, try that

What you can do is use a friends laptop or computer and create a recovery disc on there computer then put that disc into your laptop or you can borrow there windows disc.
Boot Manager:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

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

Well, my computer sometimes starts up normally but sometimes when im in the middle of what im doing it turns to a black backround and a blue box shows in the center of the screen it says something about...


This is Probably the BSOD i.e. Blue screen of death error...
1. Uninstall any programs that you had installed recently. Sometimes, there is a conflict in drivers installed on your computer that causes the blue screen error to pop up. In most cases, this does not happen, but if it does, Windows provides you a roll back feature where you can bring your PC's operating system back to its original functioning state.
2. Random Access Memory is faulty. When the Random Access Memory is faulty, the PC stops functioning everytime that area of the RAM is accessed by the CPU. This causes your PC to halt almost at Random. A simple process of elminination is just to remove 1 stick of RAM and see if the problem goes away. If it does, your PC is fixed!
3. Registry Errors Over time, the registry of your windows gets cluttered with tons of information. If you experience slow down in your PC during boot up times, opening up of new folders, surfing windows, its likely your registry has a ton of information it needs to wade through. That being the case, its a good idea to get a good registry cleaner and improve the performance speed of your PC. Errors fixed in your registry can also prevent Blue screen error crashes.

Iam using windows xp sp-2 ,


Faster way: Re install your Microsoft Windows.

Slower way: Try to work around by pressing F8 during booting process and choose "Boot in Safe Mode". Locate the problem that could be caused by hardware driver such as VGA etc.

Another possibilities:

It might be not your windows, but your hardware. Could be the hard Disk or the computer it self.

To define it you should provide us some more information, such as:

  1. Did the power supply turn up?
  2. Did the PRE BOOT (BIOS initialization) appeared in the first place before "the blank screen" appeared
  3. etc
Looking forward to hearing again from you...
