Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition for PC

1 Answer

Laptop only works in safe mode, Black screen no task bar or Icon

Hi

I really hope someone can help. My computer has been working fine until yesterday when it suggested I run a disk check. I scheduled the disk check as requested and restarted. The disk check seemed to get stuck at stage 4 of 5 so I left it for ages when I came back there was a black screen with a white mouse cursor and noting else. I restarted and it looked like it was going through the normal logon but it just left me with a black screen again.

I restarted in safe mode and everything seems to be working fine. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this. I would be so grateful if anyone can help as I have recently been made redundant so I desperately need my laptop to look for work and I really can't afford to shell out for repairs or a replacement.

My os is Window Vista Business. Please let me know if you need any other information.

Thanks in advance
Helen

Laptop boots to a black screen Dell Inspiron 10 min to boot up


Do the following tasks:
Reinstall your video driver


Check for registry issues
Start the computer in safe mode and run System Restore
Also Removing the graphics driver in safe mode might work for you. Just remove it via Device manager.

If black screen still appears then use a system utility software like ReginOut.
Hope it works for you.

Black Screen Dell 600 Laptop


Hi,
The display drivers maybe corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell support website.

If it still won't display in normal mode please post back.

Good luck.

Okay my sony laptop windows vista crashed . it turns on but then it goes to a blue screen , i can get it to safe mode & i tryed disabling stuff but it like wont restart either , it goes from a blue screen...


Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key on startup, once you're in safe mode, run the system restore tool (usually in start -> program files -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore) to a few days earlier and restore. After that, install an Anti-virus application, such as AVG Anti-Virus, and scan your computer to remove the problems.

Hope this help!
