My computer will turn on - the windows bar shows and then the screen turns black. How can I fix this problem. I had early erased some programs from my computer but I didn't think that this should cause any problems.

    When the bar comes on the screen, this means the kernal for Windows Operating is loading. If it completes and than hangs the problem is in the Ini files and/or registry. This could be caused by anything from a bad registry entry to a bad or inproper driver load. If you just updated a driver such as a video or sound driver. If you just added new software the problem can happen. If you removed a device and it's driver the problem can occur. A trogan Virus can do this. So, as you see it's hard to resolve this issue without more info. Try to Boot in Safe Mode using the F8 or F5 key just before the bar starts, a screen will ask you how to boot. Select safe mode. If the machine does boot to the desktop, your problem is now usually a driver problem. A Trogan could still be loading into memory before Windows boots and cause the issue though. This is all the help I can offer at this time without more exact info and history.

If you leave the computer it will eventually boot up, but something is causing the delay. Why not try booting in safe mode by pressing F8 as it boots and restore it to an earlier time when you know everything was working okay. Sometimes when programs are uninstalled they can take files that other programs rely on. Try restoring by pressing F8 on boot entering safe mode, go to start>programs>accessories>system tool>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was working okay with no problems.

I hope this helps

I'm trying to change the screen resolution while running windows 7 because I have no desktop showing on my monitor


Firstly, there appears to be many causes of the black screen issue. The symptoms are very distinctive and troublesome. After starting your Windows 7, Vista, XP, NT, W2K, W2K3 or W2K8 PC or server the system appears normal. However, after logging on there is no desktop, task bar, system tray or side bar. Instead you are left with a totally black screen and a single My Computer Explorer window. Even this window might be minimized making it hard to see.
If you have these symptoms you can safely try our free Black Screen Fix. It will fix the most common cause we have seen of this issue. Running the fix program is easy under normal circumstances, simply download with your browser using the link above and run the program. However, if you are trying to do this from the PC which has the black screen it is a bit more tricky. In these circumstances follow the procedure below: 1) Restart your PC 2) Logon and wait for the black screen to appear 3) Make sure your PC should be able to connect to the internet (black screen does not appear to affect this) 4) Press the CTRL, ALT and DEL keys simultaneously 5) When prompted, Click Start Task Manager 6) In Task Manager Click on the Application Tab 7) Next Click New Task 8) Now enter the command: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?GRAB=BLACKSCREENFIX" Note this command assumes that you are using internet explorer as your browser, if not substitute your browser path and file details for those of iexplore.exe or use the Browser option of Task manager to locate it. 9) Click OK and your browser should start up and begin the download process 10) When prompted for the download Click run, the black screen fix program will download and run to automatically fix the issue. 11) Now restart your PC and the black screen problem will hopefully be gone.
