    It sounds to me like you have not installed the correct driver for this video adapter. Go into Device Manager (right click on My Computer, select properties, select the Hardware tab, and then click on Device Manager) and then expand the Display Adapters section and see what it says.

Far cry 2 keeps crashing to blackscreen


When does this crashing or black screen happen? During the boot up process or while you have windows booted all the way up?

If the computer is booting up all the way except the screen is black try the steps below.

Either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without any problems then your video card is good, but your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not display then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer is not booting up all the way then try the steps below.

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Unable to install on screen display after windows 7 installation


What do you mean unable to install on screen display? Are you saying your screen is blank?

Maybe you need to reinstall the video drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "IBM Support" or "Lenovo Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.



If you are saying that the system boots up and everything seems to be running except the screen is blank then try the steps below.




Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

When you turned it on does it seem like the laptop booted up all the way except the screen is black? Do you hear the fan running, the hard drive spinning and everything seems to be ok except the screen is black?

My Medion MIM 2300 Notebook PC MD 96648 is


Your best bet is to hope it goes up in flames then you can claim off your insurance, the problem can't be fixed.
I have the same machine but with mine it got hot and the graphics processor has burnt out, it seems to be common with this model.
I can't even connect to an external monitor as everything to do with the VGA is fried and Medion support are useless.
I'll never buy a Medion again even though my previous two going back 8 years still work if somewhat slow.
