Let us first find out what is wrong. This can be due to many reasons.

1) If the Caps lock, Scroll lock & the Num lock lights are blinking when you switch on your laptop, then, the problem is with RAM. It is either dislocated from the slot due to impact or not functioning properly.
If so, you need to open the back cover over the RAM slot while your laptop is off and unplugged. Remove the battery, pull the RAM chip(s) out and then place them back properly.
Fix the cover and the battery back and restart. Check whether it boots.

2) If it doesn't, restart it in a dark room to see that does it try at all to start. Is there any blink on the screen. If YES then insert the Windows installation disc to see whether it boots from it. If it does, so for so good. These steps may be helpful:

>>Select the region and language.
>>Just when it says install now, select Repair your Computer (for Vista & Windows 7).

>>It will scan for windows installations.

>>Select next.

>>From the Repair menu that appears select startup repair.

If the problem still persists, it might be with the Master Boot Record.

>>Reach to the Repair menu any way.

>>Select to open a command prompt window.

>>Type C: and press enter.
Then type diskpart and press enter to open the windows disk partitioning utility.
Then type list volume and press enter to view the volumes.
Then see the volume of the system & boot partition (Generally 1).
If the boot volume is marked as active type exit and press enter.

>>Now you are at the command prompt.

>>Now, type bootrec.exe/rebuildbcd and press enter. Windows will write a new MBR on the partition.

>>Next, type bootrec.exe/fixboot and press enter. This will write a new boot sector on your hard disk.

>>Next, type bootrec.exe/fixmbr and press enter. This will fix the bootstrap loader to the new Master Boot Record.

Type exit and press enter to quit command prompt and restart your computer.

The problem must be fixed.

Let me know what happens.

SOURCE: my pc screen is black. it WAS starting up and

Hard to tell if your screen is bad or the video driver.

So, connect an external monitor and turn the system and see if you can "see" what is going on via the external monitor. If everything works well there, then I would suspect the LCD panel needs help (could be the LCD or the inverter).

If you can boot into safe mode, boot in and change the resolution to the video driver or uninstall the video driver and then in the reboot it should try and install the default driver.

Good luck

My window xp has no monitor

Is the screen black from the moment you turn your PC on? Or do you see the BIOS splash screen and Windows loading, but when Windows starts it goes black?

Black screen right after dell logo

start tapping f8 after you boot the machine, when given the boot menu, try to load safe mode, and see if it loads. if it does, then you need to do a system restore back to before you got the black screen. more than likely windows loaded an updated driver that disagrees with your system. try that and let me know what happens :)

Black screen nothing loading

One of your driver is acting up. start in safe mode, disable one of the drivers (DVD or whatever) then close and try to start normally. If the PC starts then reinstall the driver.

Black Screen after bios Load

There is nothing positive about this. You can try to load windows in "safe-mode" by holding the f8 key when you start windows. Then you can try to do a system "restore" to a date BEFORE this happened. If that doesn't work you will need to load a new operating system on your laptop. Good Luck

Black screen and windows won't load

It's possible that Windows got corrupted if you can enter the Setup page. Will you also try to boot up on Safe by pressing F8 during boot up. If Windows loads up on Safe mode, you may try System restore. If not, run a repair using the recovery disc of windows so you can recover all your files. If none of these resolved the issue, you have to do clean installation using the CD.

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.
