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

Why does my new Dell Inspiron show a black screen on startup?


If this boots up and works fine then it is just that your back ground is set to be black instead of blue. That can be adjusted in the settings on the monitor itself.

Loading Blackberry Desktop Manager in the System Tray


By default, setting up the Blackberry Desktop will cause the Desktop Manager to pre-load full screen each time the computer is started. To pre-load the manager application in the system tray instead, do the following:
  1. Open the desktop manager,
  2. Select the "Options" pull-down from the upper right hand corner.
  3. Check the option to "Hide when Minimized"
  4. Click "START > All Programs > Startup"
  5. Right click the Desktop Manager icon
  6. Select properties
  7. Under the Run option on the general tab pull down and select the word, "minimized"
The desktop manager will now load but only show when the Blackberry device is attached.

Come on then black screen


Hello,
if you hit the power button and it automatically goes to a black screen then either your hard drive has crashed or your operating system is not functioning. You should be able to chose startup repair from the screen that shows up before you get to your computer login/desktop.

try putting in the original install disk and do a repair or restore. The notebook should have also come with some diagnostic software. If not, contact Apple and have them hook you up. He can always use the computer at the library..... good luck!

When you boot up your computer, press the F8 key until you get some choices such as Safe Mode and Command Prompt. There will be an option for Last Known Good Configuration. Select this and hopefully it will restore your computer settings to the way it was before this happened.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
