Install RadarSync and scan your computer with it. It seems that the driver for the video went bad. Updating it would fix the issue. There are also some other drivers which might have affected your computer. By using RadarSync, all drivers will be taken care off.

Camera opens normally, only takes black pictures

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

My screen goes black after startup

Try a different monitor, I am sure this sounds overly simplistic to you but, I have seen in my customers have just that, a bad monitor.

If another monitor does the same thing, then you should try another video card. If the video in on the motherboard, there should be a AGP, PCI-e, or an empty PCI slot to put a video card in.

My window vista is not working having a hard time getting start it wont let me reboot and the computer screen is black. the computer seem like its stall, I tried my system restore cd and that did not help...

This is a new problem I have seen with vista. It is similar to the blue screen of death only it is black.

You can try reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling vista. If that does not work you will need to replace your hard drive.

It's not working!

It seems to be a software failure. Try using your recovery CD to sort it out. If it continuous then i would recommend a clean install if there's nothing that important on your laptop.

Yes, it could be stuck in hybernation

Or.. Check to See if the Lid Switch is Stuck Down... Some laptops have alittle Movable plastic pin that depresses when the lid is closed to turn the screen off... this can sometimes get stuck down to the board button.. causing the symptoms youre experiencing
