Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

When I start my computer it goes to a black screen that tells me my computer did not start successfully and that that I can pick to start my computer in safe mode, safe mode with networking , safe mode with comand prompt, last known good configuration, or start normally, and I tried all of those options and the same screen continues to pop up. I am leaving for Hawaii in the morning and I need my computer to do my homework and email my professors, I also do not have any of the disks to use. What can I do???

Try Safe Mode with networking, if your computer cannot start in normal mode. Safe mode with networking would allow you to use minimal drivers etc. while still allowing you to go on the internet. ISafe mode w/ command prompt will probably not be much use to you and if Safe Mode w/ networking does not work Safe mode will likely not work too. Last known good configuration is a good failsafe and may undo anything that may have caused your computer to go screwy. Going into safe mode w/ networking is only a temp fix if it works, as you have reduced functionality (as you will see) but if you only need to access files, it will work great. Any more questions, come back to this thread

Hope I was able to help

You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

That arrow is the way in which the BIOS is telling you tat it can't load any files - your Windows has been completely corrupted. The only thing left for you to do is to reinstall it using the recovery disk that came with it when you bought it.

Monitor turned black when i change the resolution to 32bit


press f8 when the computer starts up before windows boots and select start in vga mode or low resolution mode. after you get into windows change the video settings again but if the screen goes black, dont touch anything...it will revert back to what it was before. most likely, the resolution you picked isnt supported by the monitor. you also want to make sure that oyu have the video drivers installed properly aswell.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check

You should opt Safe Mode:
  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.
