Screen dies when booting up

I have an old HP Pavilion 8630 I have not used it for sometime but have some data I now want to access.
I recently tried to power up the computer only for the screen to go black/blank on me.
Can I do anything to get the screen to work?

    Hi,

    When you power up the computer does the power led stay on? Also does the busy light stop flashing after the screen goes blank?

System will not boot past the BIOS splash screen. It just sits there loccked up. The system is a HP Pavilion.


First of all, this is not a problem with your video card but rather your motherboard. You can try searching around with the information of your motherboard, eg brand, serial number, and bios version, or post that information here. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Werticle lines in pairs of four and long startup wait


your card is pulling too much power. check the wattage rating of the card and the wattage output of your power supply . good rule of thumb you want about 20% more that your card rating 450 watt card needs 650 watt power supply to run well. the extra is for your other stuff (dvd burner ,ect)

Black screen will not boot up


First make sure the screen is not burnt out..
When you turn it on, does it show the logo?
If not,either the processor could be fried,or the screen could be burnt, or the screen drivers are missing due to registry problems.

Stripy Boot Up


is it a new graphic card? Sometimes that happens when the graphic card gets overheated and fries up some chips. and sometimes those lines appear when the graphic card has fault in Direct Draw. Try setting your BIOS settings to default. if it doesn't work, i recommend you to take the graphic card to the nearest hardware tech ;)
