You have a hard drive failure. i suggest you take the drive out. if you can. attach it to a usb to sata if possible and run a diskchk and before you do that you can backup docs to the machine you got it attached to. If you are not getting a windows option in anyway shape or form you have a hard drive failure which is why it does not give you any options.

Good Luck!

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.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.
If it doesn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

Startup screen wont show on external display


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Windows Advanced Options Menu

Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice

you could select the safe mode option and see if you can get the extended desktop again but first you will have to find out why it crashed

if you select last known good configuration that worked it might give you an idea

hope it helps

I lost my initial log in password, how do I bypass/change it.


Hi tamuscott...

1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

My Lenovo laptop starts up and shows Microsoft Windows starting to load but a few seconds later the screen goes black. The computer is on but it shows a black screen.


Try running in Safe mode.
Start the computer and hit the F8 key many times till you get Windows Advanced Option menu - Choose safe mode with or with out networking.

Does your computer seem to be working now? (safe mode is a limited use mode)
Chances are that your computer is infected and preventing normal use..

Restoring the computer would be the easiest way to fully clean out all infections and needed software corruptions. A full restore DELETES all DATA from the hard drive - Make sure you have all your data backed up. You can back up your DATA in side safe mode.

The information given relates to CORRUPTIBLE software like a virus....
Other issues may factor in to this but, not believed to be so.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

Black screen nothing loading


One of your driver is acting up. start in safe mode, disable one of the drivers (DVD or whatever) then close and try to start normally. If the PC starts then reinstall the driver.
