Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Dell with Windows XP desktop will get a black screen after it's up and running and when I go to a new program or to switch users, the screen goes black and there is no getting it to come back, short of powering it down. If I leave it go for hours, the screen will come back but as soon as I move the mouse, it will go black again. Very unpredicatable.

Drivers may not fix the issue but try the latest ones from the site below. You can't find them on the Nvidia site because Acer don't like sharing:

Q: Does NVIDIA support notebooks with UDA (downloadable drivers)?
Yes, NVIDIA has always been able to support notebooks with the unified driver on nvidia.com/nzone.com, however, our Tier 1 OEM partners have always required that we direct customers to their Web sites and disable support for their notebooks in our unified driver. NVIDIA does support OEMs/SBs who request that their notebooks be enabled in our unified driver. For example, most of our launch partners are enabled on our Web unified drivers (Sager, Falcon NW, Voodoo PC, ProStar, and others).

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

For some reason they don't list the 5633, but the 5630 has the same GPU.

Hope this helps,

erch.

PC boots up then screen goes blank


You are asking for trouble by placing programs that Windows uses on the other drive. You are better off using the 1 TB drive as a system drive. Sounds like your OS is corrupted.

Is the game listed as "for Windows XP" or "for Windows Vista" or "for Windows 7" ?

Is your new Dell desktop running Windows 7?

Are you using the "Program Compatibility Wizard" to install an XP/Vista application
into your Windows 7 system?

Dell dimension 3000. Just Black Screen no Windows XP.


From your description, you were able to boot the machine properly in Safe Mode. While in Safe Mode, change the video resolution to the lowest possible (color depth does not matter at this point). You should also check that you are configured for single monitor operation if your video card supports multiple monitors. Reboot the machine normally. If all goes well, you can readjust your video settings for a higher resolution again.
