    no I have not it will not allow me to do anything to it, it literally boots up, screen goes black, and then it reboots again over and over, so you think its the harddrive going out? This is on a computer that an 8 yr old is in charge of too...lol.....she downloads alot of games off the internet, thanx for your input.

    Have you run any hard drive diagnostics? When I have seen this happen in other machines, it's usually the sign of a hard drive going bad.

A little late, but I had the same problem. My solution was to restart the comp. and repeatedly press F8 to go to advanced options. Choose "repair my computer". I then skipped the "load drivers" page by pressing cancel and the next screen has an option to "repair a problem that is preventing windows fom starting". After that, the computer fixed itself and started up fine

Did this problem just happen out of the blue? Were you using it and suddenly the PC just up and went belly-up? If so, it sounds like you may have bigger problems than merely a Windows problem. If you don't even see the eMachines logo at bootup before the Windows logo, then something more serious, like a motherboard issue, is your problem. Post back with more specifics, but if you don't see anything at all at booting, like any text or logo or anything, then at the very least the integrated ATI video isn't working. The solution then is either get it fixed with a new motherboard or buy a new one. As this particular model is >1 year old, it won't be under warranty, hence more expensive than it's worth.

On the other hand, did you make any hardware changes that you didn't mention? If so, post back with details.

    No, it's not a hard drive thing, by the way. If it was, you would see a message about it on the screen because the video subsystem was okay, but you say it just goes black and reboots. I've seen plenty of eMachines PCs go down this way because the motherboards are low quality.

My dell laptop keeps going back and forth from the loading logo screen to black screen


You might like to Power it off completely by removing the Battery for a few seconds.
If that doesn't help, try booting from your Win7 Installation Disk.

I am using a lenovo all in one ideacentre computer. The screen goes black for a few seconds then comes back


The screen goes black then comes back. When it comes back are you able to use the computer without any problems? When does this happen? Most times during the boot process the screen will fade in and out.

If this is not happening when you boot the system it's possible that your lcd screen might be going bad so keep an eye on it.

My Imac crashes. 10.6.4, 2 GB ram, 2 GHz core duo. I've started with a clean install and disabled (one by one) all start up apps. Out of the clear blue, the screen will go black & I have to turn it...


When you say "screen goes black," does the computer power down, or is it still operating? Does the sleep light come on? Does it respond to the keyboard and mouse? (Example: press the power button momentarily, wait a few seconds for the "Do you really want to shut down" message to appear, even though you can't see it, then hit the return key to answer "OK," and see if it shuts down.) Does the screen go black or come out of black if you tap the computer?
While your computer is working, go to System Preferences / Desktop & Screen Saver, the Screen Saver tab, click Hot Corners, and set a corner of your screen to Put Display to Sleep. Then next time your screen goes black, mouse your way into that corner, pause a few seconds, then mouse back out and see if your screen returns.

After I start computer and click on user icon, it won't open and goes back to the user icon page again


Sounds like a bit of corruption - what operating system are you running?
If you recently downloaded some updates that could have caused the problem and assuming you are running Windows as the only operating system, a simple solution could be to restore to a previous system point which you can do as follows:-

1 Switch the PC off, wait for 10 seconds then switch back on again, keep rapidly pressing the F8 key until a screen opens headed "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Choose "Safe Mode" (the top option) and a new screen opens displaying your op system. Hit return and you will see lines of text as the PC goes through a loading process then eventually it will display the login screen within a black screen labelled "Safe Mode". Log in & a desktop information message appears, click "Yes".

2 Go to "Start" > "Help and Support" > "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" (under "Pick a task") and click "Next"

3 On the calendar that pops up select an earlier date you know it was working that is in bold and click on "Next" to start the restore. Once complete just exit everything and re-boot your PC as normal.

You now have a working PC but if not you may have to get your original operating system disk out and start the PC from that, then run the repair option through Windows setup but treat this as a last resort because you risk losing data.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 and when I turn it on, I see the Dell logo come up and it says resuming windows and then the screen just goes blank. when I press the Home button, the media center comes up...


Try starting the computer in safe mode

Press F5 every few seconds when you startup the computer.

That should take you into windows. Once you're in, just restart the computer and you should be able to get back in.

Let me know what happens.

Acer AL1914 black screen, green light


it sounds like a deleted driver? try getting the driver for the monitor, did you loose the Operating system at some point, if so try a system restore to a date when the computer was working properlly prior to the malfunction. It sounds like it restored you to a time before the driver for that monitor was installed.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105


1. Please press and hold on F8 key immediately after power on then select Safe Mode. If you are able to go to the desktop, please go to Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. Please select a date when your laptop was working properly. This will the software changes beyond that date but will not delete your personal data. Your laptop will restart and give the message that the restoration was completed. Please connect the ac adapter so that the process will not be interrupted. If this does not work like if you are not able to
2.Do the system recovery but with this option, you will lose everything and your computer will be restored to the out of the box state. For you to do this, you will need to use the recovery disk that came with your laptop. Please load the disk 1 then turn your laptop off. Please press on the power button to turn it back on then immediately press and hold on the F12 key. Select CD/DVD from the boot options. Windows will be loading files then select Recovery Wizard. Select the Default Software after that then select the Recover to the Out of the Box State. After the first disk, you will be prompted to load the second disk. Please connect the ac adapter since the entire process will take around an hour.
Hope this works. Thank you.

Faulty monitor


This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps.
