Blank Black Screen and Auto Rebooting

Okay Im trying to fix this for a friend. She doesn't have the System Restore CDs so I can't use those. But, pretty much her screen won't show anything but when I connect a monitor to it everything loads up fine. But, then nothing won't load past the Windows XP screen everytime it gets to that point it restarts again. And as stated earlier I don't have the system restore CD's and starting over from scratch is an option so can anyone help me out here?

    Theres two problems the remote monitor works fine its the laptop screen that is messed up. The laptop screen has the Background light come on and all I can see are lines yet when I use the remote monitor everything shows up. But the major problem is when booting it up. Ill get to the Window XP logo screen where it acts as if its loading then just restarts back to the beginning with the Toshiba screen and then asking me if I want to boot in safe mode and what not which that doesn't work either. After it brings up the different things its loading it restarts again.

    Hello,
    I am having a problem with my toshiba. When my laptop is booting up it gets to the toshiba screen and then it goes to a black blank screen. After a few minutes the screen goes to a black screen saying that your system has crashed and you could attempt to put the repair cd in and press "r". But the big problem is that I don't have the repair cd with me.

    Thanks In advance!!!

    Need more. Do you mean that after everything is installed and you reboot it stops even with the remote monitor or only on laptop screen?

Try rebooting your system in to safe mode and try using system restore in order to restore your laptop to an earlier time when it worked.

E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

Clean acer 5742 restore to factory setting


Try my hint on how to restore a laptop to factory settings. http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10606238-restore_computer_factory_default
If your laptop doesn't have a restore partition, you should have received CDs with the computer that will restore the system. If you don't have either, try to find a friend who has the CDs. Acer will charge you a fortune for CDs.

While trying to fix a friend's acer aspire one, i ran a defrag check. after rebooting once the check was complete, the computer will not boot up and sits on a black screen. all F8 screen options freeze...


The windows has to be reinstalled ( Formatting the Hard Disk with DATA LOSS ) Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.
To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the netbook.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
  5. Select ' completely restore to factory defaults
If this is not working, then get the Factory Recovery CD's to reinstall windows.

Black screen


Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

E-Machines T3120 Keeps Rebooting


Try rebooting in Safe Mode (generally by pressing F8 as it comes up from a cold reboot). This will let you reset the PC to a date previous to when your cousin changed settings. You won't lose any documents or photos, it just puts system settings back to that point in time. Safe mode will look a little different than you're used to but that will be okay when done. After it comes up, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Pick a calendar date that is in bold as this will have restore points for you to choose from. Make sure the radio button is picked that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click okay and let the system do its thing. This will take a few minutes. Let me know if this works for you or if you have any other questions.

Blank screen appears on the startup with only cursor on it


The Acer Recovery CDs do not set the Boot flag on the hard drive. I had to manually set the boot flag to on using GPARTED Live. After restarting using the GPARTED CD, you can manage the flags under the partition drop down and click on the Boot flag. After exiting GPARTED, I rebooted the laptop and no more black screen....fixed!!
I hope this helps others.
