Blank screen after boot splash screen

I have an emachine all in one EZ1711. At boot you see splash screen and with the 'Del for setup' and 'F12 for boot options', then the screen goes blank. If you press del quickly enough it says 'please wait' and then goes blank. I think it actually boots, but you can't see anything. I've tried a Windows 7 disk to try and repair, but although you can hear the drive working, the screen is still blank. Any ideas appreciated.

    Update: It's like what happens if you have a laptop set for an external display, but has no external display connected so can't see the output. In this case, this machine is an all in one and has no output for an alternative display and hence to way on the keyboard to change the display. Anyone with any ideas?

Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

this will set the boot order
hope this helps

if this fails you might try some of these



Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

Restart your computer do you see prees f2 or something else
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Hope this helps
Also you might try
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)

Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.


Hi.

Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.


Good luck.

My daughter forgot her password on emachine E725 and can not boot. How can we reboot the computer? Thank you.


Assuming that you mean the Windows log in password, try using blank (none) as password (otherwise at the log on screen hit "enter"). If this doesn't work log on at the administrator's account. To do this if you can see the administrator's icon click on it and use blank (none) for password again. If you can't see the administrator's icon, hit ctrl+atl+del TWICE and type as user "administrator", blank (none) for password and hit enter. After you log on as administrator change your user's account as you wish and you are ready to go.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Laptop won't boot. No splash screen. Crash


Take out any USB device from the PC when rebooting: some BIOSes will incorrectly try to boot off them.

If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS Setup (F2 or Del key at boot) and find the Boot Devices menu, confirm that the highest-priority one is "Internal HDD" (or the name of your internal hard disk).
