Blank screen I bought my emachine in june of 2006. My problem is that when I turn on the computer the screen is black and msg is "on safe mode hit any key to continue" I do this and nothing happens. I have no more warranty so I can't get any tech support. Question? is my computer worth trying to get it fixed or just toss it?

    well you shouldent play about with the windows files and .dll files.



    and dont download untrusted files and avoid viruses and install a good antivirus such as



    Mcafee

    Kaspersky

    Panda antivirus



    dont go for the free antivirus



    they tend to have viruses

My emachine computer has a black message screen,it will not bring up my windows for any reason what can I do to fix the problem and get online


If it's a black screen with no messages just hold down the power button on your PC, wait for it to turn off and let go. Wait a bit and turn it back on and hit the F8 key and select to start up Windows using SAFE MODE. It should work than.

try rebooting the computer and as soon as it turns on tap on the "F8" key until a new boot menu appears, choose "safe mode" if the computer starts successfully in safe mode. restart it and allow to boot normally. If this fails comment back as to whether it started in safe mode or not and I will attempt to help you further,

@i bought in 2007 the e macines windows vista home premium, and i get an error code that claims i have a registry error, how can i fix this


You didn't give us much information, but I would start the computer in safe mode, if possible (hit F8 when the computer is starting up--keep tapping on it until you get the screen that lets you choose safe mode.)
Once the computer is running, do a system restore back a few days or so to when it was running OK.
Other suggestion, rather than safe mode on startup--choose "repair my computer."

INSPIRON 640M WILL NOT GO INTO SAFE MODE , IT GIVES OPTIONS BUT NONE OF THEM WORK , THEN IT GOES TO THE BLANK SCREEN.


Try going to safe mode manually. The steps mentioned below will help you accessing the safe mode

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Safe Mode/Safe mode with networking".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

When you are on the blank screen try to press CTRL+ALT+DEL on your keyboard at the same time. it should bring up the task manager window. now, click on FILE > New Task Run > Type in EXPLORER.EXE and press Ok. it should show you your Taskbar, desktop wallpaper, desktop icons

Forgotten password



Go to Safe mode using the F8 key.

( Shut down the computer --> Now turn on the system and keep tapping the F8 key on the system.--> you will receive the windows Advance option--> choose the Safe mode option and hit enter--> choose the your operating system and hit enter..)

In safe mode if the computer prompts to enter the Administrator account --> Do not put any thing and hit enter --> that means use Blank Password and hit enter. If it works perfect follow the further steps. If it does not choose another account if exist.

In safe mode :-

steps 1:-

click on start--> run-->control userspasswords2 hit enter. Now the window which opens up--> uncheck the option which says :- Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer.
after unchecking it hit apply button at the botton and hit ok.

Now when you restart the computer will not ask you the Password and will take you directly to the Account.

once you are in you can remove the Password through the user accounts in control panel.

Try this and let me know if it works...!

The system restore probably undid something really essential for the computer to work properly. Try hitting F8 when the computer is booting up, boot into safe mode, log in as admin and try to undo the last restore you did.

Computer won't load. blank screen.


- Press F8 during the boot,
- go to Safe Mode,
- After Desktop is displayed,
- restart the system in Standard Mode
If the problem is still there, you need to reload the Windows with Recovery CDs.
