You can try booting into "Safe Mode" by tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting. If you can get in this way it is probably your video drivers.

Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. But, this will delete all of the data/files. http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-4VFUDU

My HP Pavilion G6 laptop screen turns on and then goes blank (black)


When the screen turns on does it show anything or does it turn on and go to black?

If it goes to straight black it could be two things typically.
1. The LCD screen is having an issue. Connection cable / LCD screen itself.
2. The Graphics Card has gone out.

Your laptop is probably outputting the video signal to the wrong monitor. When the screen goes black, try pressing the function key to switch the video back to the laptop screen. Refer to your laptop's manual on what key to press. Usually it is the Fn key and F4 at the same time for HP laptops.

Hi

It seems that you need to use the latest driver for the graphic card.

You can do that through visiting the manufacture's website, choose your laptop model, OS, look for video (vga) driver, and download it.

My HP Pavilion a 1600n wont let me long on goes to a black page tells me to press "r" for recovery i have no HP Pavilion a 1600n installation disc


k when the computer first boots up hit f8 or shift f8 to get to advance options . move arrows to last known good configuration. if that fails to get you on desk top you will most likely need to call hp and get replacement disks to reinstall the missing or currupted drivers. your NTloader is not reading from your master boot record that is why your getting this.

Okay, first off I wanted to confirm that this only happens with new games, or do the lines occur all the time? Did this start after you attempted to load a game? If so it could be that your monitor is over clocking meaning that it is trying to refresh the screen so much faster than it can handle it is producing those lines. But I need the answers to the above questions in order to continue to diagnose the problem.
