It's a long shot but try this:

1) Restart your PC
2) Logon and wait for the black screen to appear
3) Make sure your PC should be able to connect to the internet (black screen does not appear to affect this)
4) Press the CTRL, ALT and DEL keys simultaneously
5) When prompted, Click Start Task Manager
6) In Task Manager Click on the Application Tab
7) Next Click New Task
8) Now enter the command:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?GRAB=BLACKSCREENFIX"
Note this command assumes that you are using internet explorer as your browser, if not substitute your browser path and file details for those of iexplore.exe or use the Browser option of Task manager to locate it.
9) Click OK and your browser should start up and begin the download process
10) When prompted for the download Click run, the black screen fix program will download and run to automatically fix the issue.
11) Now restart your PC and the black screen problem will hopefully be gone.

Good luck

What is the solution if there is a word ''you may be a victim of software counterfeiting'' which appear on the right bottom corner of my monitor?


There are two solutions.

Buy a genuine windows CD, or get a windows genuine validation patch.

Once you done either of the above, you will never be prompted for validation, and you can use many more utility and software's which are only for genuine window users.

I am a victim of software counterfeiting


The only way you will ever get to get rid of that annoying counterfeit message is to install a genuine windows software, i.e. you need to purchase a unique windows software/CD for that pc. If you purchase the windows software, then during installation, in which you much boot from CD/DVD drive, you must select repair. That way all your documents will be preserved intact for you. The counterfeit message really simply is saying to you that, “look, this copy of the windows is actually owned by someone else and has been registered as such on Microsoft server.” Microsoft requires that each PC have a unique CD/software.

Hi there.
Your copy of windows is not genuine or your system has been hacked and your product key stolen.
The only thing you can do now is purchase a copy of windows with a genuine product key.
Microsoft gives only 28 days for you to rectify it and buy a product key from them otherwise they will lock you out of the operating system so back up all your data before this happens.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

My windows xp software


If you find the message :

"You may have been a victim of software coounterfeiting.

This copy of Window did not pass genuine Windows validation.

Ask for genuine microsooft software."

That means that your system is counterfeit

If the system is counterfeit I cannot help you because of Fixya policies on piracy.

If it is not, I can tell you that you can get rid of the problem doing a system restore to a date before you started getting the message.
