My computer comes on just fine, but then while loading the screen goes black. You can hear the computer still working. Sometimes the screen will pop back on but it will be faint and flicker then goes black and stays black.

Regarding the blank screen, your monitor is most likely faulty - I'm assuming an LCD screen, in which case the backlight is failing, possibly the tubes or the the inverters.

Regarding the fans, you may have pulled the fan leads out of their connectors on the motherboard. Check to see if the CPU fan spins while the computer is switched on.

SOURCE: Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)

I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

Chinese android T04-6 tablet screen goes blank


I'm having exactly the same problem. At first I thought it might be the battery, but if I unplug it, I can still hear facebook alerts, email alerts, etc and if I play around with it (turn it from side to side and press the lockout button repetitively) it will flash the lock screen for an instant - sometimes for a few enticing seconds - and then black. If I plug the charger in while it's powered off I can see the battery icon just fine. The screen WORKS - I just can't see the "desktop". I can't figure out how to do a hardcore reset other than the little pinhole button in the back, but it seems like that just powers it off. I can't see the screen if it gives any options, so I dunno. PLEASE help if you know anything.

This is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back into place, sometimes this will work and run fine. But it is more than likely your hard drive will need to be replaced.

My computer monitor goes blank after microsoft windows loads just before the logon screen pops up i can hear the desktop and startup music but cant see it help?


Try this.. reboot your computer and when you see the first logo come up hit f8, this will take you into a black screen and give you a few different options. You will see one that says restore computer to last known good configuration. Select this and hit enter. It will give a list of dates on the next screen, choose the one when you know your computer was working correctly, hit enter and let it complete the process. This will not remove or alter any of your files, it is just "setting your computer back to a previous date. Hope this works for you, which it should. let me know if you have any further issues.
If you find this helpful, pls leave feedback, thx :)

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.


same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Screen is Black/Not on from start.


Try going into your BIOS by starting the notebook and tapping F10, when the screen comes up then tap once on F9, and choose to save default settings, and tap F10 again and exit. One other thing you can try is to connect your notebook to another screen or another PC so that you can see it is your video card or your screen. If you are having problems with your video card it will not show up on an external screen either, but if its your screen then you should be able to get video on another screen. If you do not get a screen in the BIOS screen then I would go to Radio Shack and have your video card tested.

Does Not Turn On


First thing you're gonna want to try is reseating the memory.

Second, see if you can get into the bios by pressing F2, F10, DEL key it depends see if you see something on the screen, sometimes pressing ESC does it. It all depends.

Try that first and let me know what happens.
