Screen stays black when the computer is turned on.
I was on the computer and once I was done with my email I open an existing game, once the game was opened the screen went completely blank. I tried turning it off for a while and then comeing back to it but it is still just a black screen. However when I turned the computer back on it did go back and forth from being brighter and darker I cannot figure it out. It has had a problem before but it would at least show that it was trying to load now nothing. PLEASE HELP.

Keep tapping F8 once u press teh power button to turn on your computer.
No select safemode with networking.
Once you get the desktop, save your paper which u were working on to a flash drive or to your email.
Since you didnt specify the OS, i wont be able to give u a details info on doing system restore.
Anyways the next step is system restore to a date on which the computer was working fine.
If that doesnt help, try tapping Alt+F10 instead of the F8 key to start system recovery to reset the computer back to the factory settings, however u will lose all your datas which u put in.
If u can tell me the OS, i can tell u how to start system restore.
This sounds like there is something such as a USB device trying to be read on startup. Once you have disconnected the USB Device from your PC, try reloading your PC again, if this doesn't work there is a problem with one of the devices, i.e. video card, network card (wireless).

It could be many problems, but it most likely your operating system. Run a virus scan on your computer with whatever anti-virus that you're running to see what it turns up. Also run a 'disk cleanup' by right clicking your storage drive in 'My computer' and selecting 'properties' Once you've done that, from the same properties window that opens up, click the 'tools' tab and check your drive for errors. Also make sure that your have all the appropriate updates for your operating system.
LMAO it sounds like it is going into power-saving mode because there is (or it -thinks- there is) no signal. Has it always done this? Try punching up the controls when you turn it on and changing its behavior through those menus. Doublecheck the monitor's connection to the computer. Alternately, if it is connected and a display is coming up for those 10 seconds; perhaps just going into sleep mode, with the power LED changing appropriately; you can look up the exact model, and find schematics and previously solved instances of your case.
Even if you can't find those, you could read through some introductory electronic circuit books (and the internals of the monitor...unplug and read the books' safety bits first) and determine what went bad and how to replace that component.
