Hi, 
I think the problem is with your display resolution. Your monitor can not display the display resolution, it may be too high. I might also be the display refresh rate frequency too high.
To fix, re-boot your system into safe mode. Set display setting to the lowest and apply, then restart to normal mode. You should be able to get into normal mode, but using lowest resolution setting.

If you have your windows program on cd-rom try putting it in before starting your computer. Then run a virus scan.

You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

My screen goes black after startup


Try a different monitor, I am sure this sounds overly simplistic to you but, I have seen in my customers have just that, a bad monitor.

If another monitor does the same thing, then you should try another video card. If the video in on the motherboard, there should be a AGP, PCI-e, or an empty PCI slot to put a video card in.

My PC will only start and stay on in safe mode. When I start windows normally, it stays on for 5-10 mins then goes to a Black screen....WHY????


It may be going into sleep mode. When the screen goes black, try pressing the space bar on the keyboard to wake it up. If the computer wakes back up again, then you may need to adjust your power settings. Try it and let me know what happens.
