Most newer computer have energy saving features that turn off the monitor, hard drives and various other components after a designated period of time.

Open the panel where you change the screensaver. At the bottom of that should be a box that says "Change power settings". In that box click the power settings link and that will open the power control panel. You can then use the contols in there to adjust the settings to how you like them. you can set it to power down after 5 minutes or never depending on what you feel is apropriate.

Hope this helps

My Acer z5600 just shuts off while I'm doing something without any notice.I gets very hot at the top of the screen and then shuts off without warning.The screen just goes black and I can not turn


Your processor is overheating. Or the fan for the CPU is dead or the way to eject the warm air is blocked. Try to work with your laptop on a table, if the problem persists, is the fan other way you have to work everytime on the table.

HP touchsmart 310 Screen goes blank after turning on and stay's that way.


You best bet is to pull the hard drive and attach it to another computer. This will allow you to copy the infomation you are worried about to another sorce. Most computer retailers that offer services will have a back up service and can do this for you. The average cost in my area for a back is $100.

Once you have the computer repaired, make sure you back things up. If you are worried about loosing something back it up twice. External hard drives are reasonably priced, and most computer have some kind of optical burner.

Hope this helps

Shut down with ''ckdsk scan to run on next reboot''. Now it runs the black screen and the windows screen pops up and shuts down right away. It goes back to the black start up screnn and repeats forever.


Your HD's probably bought it, but you can always try to read from it later after you reinstall to a new hard drive or drive array (striped SATA is fast!)

Startup logo appears then it goes to a black screen and blinks


You should try booting into safe mode. Press the F8 key before the windows logo and choose safe mode without network support. If windows loads run a checkdisk by right clicking on the c drive, left click on properties and then select the tools tab. From there you can run a disk test to check for errors. If you get that far then reboot and see if it starts normally. If not try F8 again and try selecting restore the last known working condition. This will restore your settings from the last time it worked. If you can’t get to the F8 screen get back with me and I will try a few more drastic solutions. Good Luck

Try to work through the steps in this article. or this article.
If that doesn't help, here's a workaround that seems to help in some cases:
"Yea I have the blank screen too for my averatec 3200, but there's an easy work around
for some reason it default goes to the monitor port instead of the screen
all you do is press function screen( Fn F5) twice and you can see again. Whenever you see the blank screen pop up just change."
\
You might also google 'blank screen at logon' and check for other options, such as here.
If you get windows up, try this:
Run chkdsk c: /f or /r according to these instrucitons & these. (you can also run this from the recovery console or cd).
This could be the result of a driver conflict or issue. Run windows update and check for graphics updates, or follow these instructions to update your graphics/video drivers.
There's also the possibility that the problem is malware related, in which case try to follow these instructions.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Screen goes black but computer is on


I would turn the computer off at night, but try to restart the computer. the computer can get stuck in a suspended state of "hibernation" and due to a program error or a corrupt file it can get stalled this way ( just like when your computer freezes)

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode


You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.
