Why computer screen stays black how do i solve it

Repair your Windows installation:

  • Use the Windows XP CD-ROM to start your computer. On the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to set up Windows XP.
  • Press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
  • Use the ARROW keys to select the Windows XP installation that you want to repair, and then press R.
  • Windows XP Setup repairs the installation files, Windows XP automatically restarts, and then the Setup program finishes the repair of your Windows XP installation.
Follow the remaining steps to set up Windows.

Note You must have your 25-character product key to complete these steps.
As soon as this issue is resolved, make sure that the firewall is enabled, and then visit the following Microsoft Web site to reinstall the latest updates:

  • Run a virus scan on the computer because problems with corrupted elements can be attributed to viruses.
  • Use a sytem utility tool like ReginOut to fix corrupt registry and windows files.
Hope this method works for you.

Hi there!

After trying to load to you windows XP does it give you any error message? If not, have you tried to remove unnecessary things that is plugged in to your computer for example printer, mp3 something like that just leave the monitor, keyboard and mouse plugged in then try to start the computer. If it's still not working and you have tried to access safe mode already then you'll need to back all the files in your computer because there's a high chance that you might need to reformat it.

Hope this helps!

You will require a start up/recovery/system disc as the boot sector has been damaged.
If you can get it to boot with a start up disc, run Scandisk to try and recover the sectors. If that doesn't work, reinstall Windows, bearing in mind most XP drivers are now obsolete.

HI yellowlizard

these things always happen when you turn off your computer the wrong way (turn off the power directly from suiz or short circuit occurs) or damage to the operating system in general.
What you need to do is to repair your operating system using the operating system CD, do the chkdsk / r and fixboot.

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

Gateway laptop mx3414-black screen cannot load windows

Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G

When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.
