    count how many beeps there are and if they are long or short, then post back

    sounds like you might need to open up the case and clear the cmos. unplug first from wall. then open up side panel and remove the watch battery noticing the position and wait 5 minutes and then put it back in. there are jumper pins you can move around as well if you are familiar with your board to do the same thing. i just think it is easier for me to tell you to do it this way. now after you installed the battery again. plug in cord now hit the power button and keep hitting delete button or f8 whichever gets you into bios. choose an option that says setup defaults and then save and exit. see if this helps.

  • Did this problem just start ? Have you changed any parts in the computer ? When you turn it on does the computer just go to black screen ?

  • Chuck May 11, 2010

    do you see anything at all especially right after you hit the power button?

Hi again.
The beep codes you describe are memory issues or failure, take the system memory out, clean the contacts and the slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush. Re-seat the memory firmly and try boot the PC again.
please post back with the results

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

How do i fix the black screen of ***** on my windows vista?


The problem is not the fix, the problem is finding out which problem of many possibilities is causing the the black screen.
This requires some troubleshooting.
I assume you are using a PC.
The first step is to turn on the monitor first.
Make sure the power on indicator LED on the monitor comes on.
Then boot the PC. Make sure the CPU fan comes on inside the PC.
(If you are running a laptop and the screen is always black, it is usually the flexible cable joining the screen to the main body has broken. A hardware problem)
Does anything show up on the screen?

If no, check the CPU cooler inside the PC.
If it is plugged up with dust and lint, you may have a burned out CPU that will have to be replaced. (A lack of cooling air causes the CPU to overheat and fail when the safety does not work. A common problem.)

If yes, get a Linux boot CDROM/DVD, boot on the Linux CDROM/DVD, and follow the instructions to run CLAM antivirus under Linux.
When the screen goes black during boot, and stays black, the problem is usually a "Root Kit" virus.
You can not remove these viruses with a normal Windows antivirus program. They are too deeply embedded in the system.

This is the start of the troubleshooting procedure.
You really need somebody "on-site" to troubleshoot a problem that is this complex.

I am having trouble with the monitor showing a black screen. It will turn off in the middle of anything I am doing, quite randomly. Using windows XP Home edition. PC does not turn off, but disk light...


I would suggest to first determine that your monitor is OK. If you are using a notebook try connecting an external monitor as well and see if the same random (monitor switching off problem) happens with this monitor. If you have a desktop try connecting a different monitor.

If the same condition happens with a different monitor try updating the drivers for your video card.

Vista Black Screen after Startup.


Try booting into SAFE MODE, usually by pressing F5 or F8 just after turning the power on. This should give you a display. Once you can see your desktop right chick on a blank area of the desktop, select PERSONALISE, then DISPLAY SETTINGS to reduce the screen resolution. Then reboot and try again in NORMAL Startup

this is a no bot issue & check if any other device like any peripherals are connected with the computer like a printer or a camera or an external pen drive etc are not connected with the system at the time of booting up the computer,in case they are connected then try disconnecting them & also try doing the Flea power ie removing the main power cable and then pressing the power button on the cpu for about 20-25 mins & then turning on the computer.this will help you out.

Cpu problem.


Let's start troubleshooting. First your monitor has the power thats for sure. Tka your monitor and hook it up to another computer, just to see if the monitor is gonna work. If it doesn't it could be your monitor. If it does then it could be your video card. Don't forget to try a new cable as well, it might be it, too.

Nothing is working! I need help


Hello,

You haven't received a response from Whisperwolf because our email notification system is down right now.

When you start your system and before your Dell screen shows, Press either the F2 or F10 screen. This should get you a System Bios setup screen. In this screen, see if there is an entry for your Hard drive and CDROM drive.

If you can get that far comment back and I'll check back here until our email system is working again. The fact that your computer is not responding to your CDROM is not a very good sign and your computer may have been starting to fail with the first of errors you received and is now at complete risk.

Regards,
Worldvet
