Get black screen with no response

My laptop freezes up with a black screen and when I restert it, i get the three options of a normal start up, safe mode, or safe mode networking. I have picked each of the three options and I am returned to the options screen with no change. I reload Windows XP and the computer operates fine. A few days later, the black screen re-appears and I repeat the reloading of the operating system and again the computer operates fine. Does this sound like a hard drive failure or something else.

Thanks,
keith k

So my laptop froze yesterday and I turned it off to restart it. When I restarted it it everything was normal but after the starting windows goes away it usually goes to the login page well now all it does...


Try starting it in safe mode.
When the computer is starting just after the beep or when the bios info goes away press f8 repeatedly and you will get an option to open in regular or safe mode.
Alternativly you can also hold down teh ctrl key and it should do the same.
Did you install or update and drivers recently?

Window 7 every 20 minutes hang


Many things could be causing this, the first thing I would do is boot into safe mode and see if the issue continues.
Safe Mode

Just before the Windows 7 splash screen (black with windows logo) appears, press the F8 key to enterAdvanced Boot Options.

You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen. If not, you may have missed the short window of opportunity to press F8 in the previous step and Windows 7 is probably now continuing to boot normally assuming it's able to. If this is the case, just restart your computer and try pressing F8 again.

Here you are presented with three variations of Windows 7 Safe Mode you may enter:

  • Safe Mode - This is the default option and is usually the best choice. This mode will load only the absolute minimum processes necessary to start Windows 7.

My laptop screen is blue with horizantal lines. After I installed a graphics card driver everything went fine, but the next day the laptop's display started acting weird. So I turned off the laptop and...


The OS-loading screen is a stong indicator that thee is nothing wrog with your hardware, but it is a driver issue. You need to press F8 as your computer starts up and enter SAFE-MODE.
Windows 7
Using the F8 Method:
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen as shown in the image below.

  3. Using the arrow keys, select the Safe Mode option you want.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Windows 7 will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.
In safe-mode remove & delete the drivers you installed. If you can, revert to your old driver set.

Philips mt1800 displays problems with startup


You can't fix that anymore, your windows copy is now "corrupted or impotent".
If it won;t work on safe mode, probably your system files are at a bad condition.
Recovery disc might get you to startup again, but if ever there is a virus it will just happen again.
I advise you to reformat if you don't have anymore files to save.
If ever there is, well... maybe get a linux live CD so you can browse through your hard disk again.
Hope I helped, cheers.

Try rebooting it with the cd you ejected back in, to see if the installation finishes. If this does not work, take the disk back out and try booting with the option Last Good Configuration.

Computer will not load.


use safe mode..do a disc clean, defrag..and then reboot...sounds like the operating system headers went unhappy when you moved it(which I highly recommend you NOT do again)..
