Try starting up in Safe Mode.

Once in safe mode, use antispyware/antivirus software to check for problems.

E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

I updated windows automatic updates and it kept telling me to restart the computer so i postponed it for 4 hours. i then left the computer not shutting it down correctly. now windows will not start...


Turn on PC or restart it if it is running and keep pressing F8 during restart.

On screen that will appear choose to start it in "Safe Mode"

When it starts go to Start - Accessories - System tools - System restore - Restore my computer to an earlier time - choose restore point before the date and time when update was done.

Restoring can take a lot of time so be patient even if you think that progress bar is stuck it is still working. Make sure you choose the restore point older than update time.
