ON boot up the screen goes blank ater half a second


if the screen goes blank when the windows boots up ...than it is a driver issue and you should boot in safe mode (press F9 or F12 for boot menu ) ..and while in safe mode you have to reinstall the video card driver cause it is corrupted..You should do that just in case it is getting blank in the moment windows should kick in ..
If it is right from the start than it is a computer issue ..and it is either the Ram memory to blame ..and it is booting up in a loop ..and in this case try to remove it ..and boot with on ram memory at the time and see if one of them is faulty ..or if ti is just one ..remove place back ..and also remove the cmos battery to clear settings and boot again and see what s going on ..It may work and in this case problem solved ..or not and you should try new memory ..
Or the worse case..this can be a CPU failing ..and you will have to change it ..

Sony vaio ns. my desktop is blank, im unable to use my laptop as i cannot see or open anything.


On the Windows Operating System you can boot up to safe mode by pressing f8 continuesly while booting until you get a menu that lets you go into safe mode. Go into Safe mode then it will give you the option to do a SYSTEM RESTORE. It will bring up a calendar and let you pick a earlier restore point where you didn't have that problem. It will not delete any programs so don't worry about that.

I hope this helps,

Sony VGC-LS35E BLANK SCREEN


Do you mean after windows has booted you have a blank screen?
Boot into windows in safe mode (by pressing F8) during the boot up process.
When booted go into device manager and remove any video drivers under display adapters, if it asks to delete the files as well answer yes.
Reboot into normal mode and let windows find the driver for you.

I have a Dell GX60 and I changed the display resolution and


So, with The computer, completely turned off, Turn it on, Can't you see the BIOS screen? , or a Dell LOGO?

It is when you see this BIOS or Dell logo Screen that you Need to:
  • PRESS F8
  • Press F8
  • Press F8, again, and again right when your computer turns on.
Then You should be brought to the Window that allows you to boot into SAFE MODE, DO NoT PICK SAFE MODE.

Pick: ------------ENABLE VGA (basically safe mode) Only!.

Once booted, log in and change the resolution to let's say 800x600,
then restart your computer normally.

You should then be able run windows normally, (Without F8 Key) where you can then change the resolution to what you want.

IMPORTANT! Remember this, if you set your display to a resolution that it Does Not

support, and the screen goes blank. DO Not Turn off your computer: ALL YOU DO IS PRESS

the (Esc) ESCAPE Key within 15 Seconds and your monitor's resolution will be set to it's

previous state again.

I Hope This Helps.

Safe mode boots okay but not in normal boot - no error either


Do you have the original recovery disk? I recommend inserting the recover disk, restart the computer while continually pressing F12. Select boot from CD, press any key when asked, and you would want to do a "repair". That should fix your problem.

Boots but to a blank screen just the pointer remains


Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.

If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.

Good luck :)

Its on but just has a blank screen ??


First see if it will boot in the Safe Mode, pressing F8 when the computer starts up. Choose Safe Mode in the boot option. If it will boot in the safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8 again and select Start in the last known configuration. Hopefully
this will fix the problem. If not and you are running XP Pro, boot in the safe mode and do a restore. you get there by clicking Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, choose a date that the computer was working and click Restore.

Try "Safe Mode " by pressing F5 or F8 while booting, if you dont have hardware problem on hard disk or somewhere safe mode with take you to system without loading many drivers and startup programs.
