Hello i have a Dell Optiplex 745 it boots up and starts windows 7 normally then the the screen goes black does anyone know how to fix it?


Can you boot into Safe mode. It is usually done by pressing a specific key during the POST session. If you can, then boot into safe mode and delete the Video Driver. Reboot. TYou should have a VGA display, download and install the video driver again.

Dell latitude e6400 wont boot has black screen


Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
- Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
- Check for registry issues
If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Goes On ..Then Goes Black Screen I have 2 GX280s. One failed the other day after 2 years use. The BIOS screen appeared then it all went black. About every 10th attempt to get it going, it works and boots...


have you tried booting in safe mode? When it starts press F8 and select "Safe Mode" or "Last Known Good Configuration.". On that 10th try you do get it to come up make sure you install all updates for your computer. Then you can put int he Optiplex disk from Dell and run some diagnostics.
