Blank screen after boot splash screen


Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

Hp freezes after it sits for long time


which operating system ?

Normally your computer will turn on a screen saver or enter sleep mode after a certain period of idle time, to protect your monitor from suffering a "burn in" of an image that appears on the screen for extended periods of time. This also helps to save electricity during periods of inactivity. Vista owners report via Internet tech help forums a seemingly rampant "bug" that causes the machine to freeze after being left idle for long periods. No single factor seems to cause this, and instead requires troubleshooting and trial and error to find a fix that works.

Screen Saver Failure
When your computer freezes after a long idle period, it could be due to a malfunctioning screen saver. Turn your screen saver off, by clicking "Start" and then "Control Panel." Under "Appearance and Personalization," click "Personalization" and select "Screen Saver." Select "None" under the screensaver drop-down list and hit OK. Pay attention next time your computer goes idle for reappearance of the problem. b> Power Saving Options b> Windows Vista provides users a way to select how their computers behave after sitting idle for a certain amount of time. In many cases, the hard drive and monitor are instructed to enter sleep mode or even shut down after they've been idle for a specified time frame. To check or alter your settings, click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Under the System and Maintenance icon, click "Power Options." Under this tab you can change the amount of time before your system goes to sleep, and the actions it takes after reaching the idle time. Malware b> When mysterious things begin happening to your computer for no apparent reason, there's a good chance a malware program is behind it. Malware are nasty, hidden programs that download themselves onto your computer to cause havoc and even steal your personal information. These invaders monopolize your CPU, clog your RAM, and generally make using your computer unpleasantly slow and frustrating. Their presence can affect everything from program operation to operating system functionality. Always update and run malware protection software regularly to keep these pests out of your computer. b> Update Windows and BIOS b> Your computer's operating system and BIOS files are responsible for proper operation and functionality. Over time, these files can become outdated, requiring patches, fixes and other updates to correct compatibility and security problems in your computer. Microsoft provides regular updates for its Vista operating system to correct reported problems. The BIOS in your computer is programmed into the motherboard, so the board's manufacturer may have an update available for your version. In many cases, the brand that sells the computer may offer a link to the BIOS update, so check with Microsoft for any updates available. b> Too Many Processes b> Your computer will register as "idle" if you haven't used it, even if you have programs open on the screen. After a certain amount of time, the system will send the data you were working on to the RAM as the system settles into sleep mode. When trying to wake the system after this idle period, it may have a hard time resuming the programs that are open, causing a freeze. Close down any program you are not actively working in to save the CPU from unnecessary work, and lessen the load placed on the RAM when it's left idle. right mouse click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications if you see something running that should not be running select end now you might even uninstall that specific program if its no longer needed also in the processes tab see whats ticking over in the background might be a virus or malware. Download and install at least one of these all free depending on your operating system http://download.cnet.com/avg-antivirus-free-2013/3000-2239_4-10320142.html avg free 2013 http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Security_Essentials_for_Windows_d6242.html microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4281&file=1&evp=dbb3b0aebe6a6a4ff18089a6489a5e62 anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials/product-information malware protection http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=615 windows xp microsoft security essentials http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=614 windows 7 microsoft security essentials Hope this helps.

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.

Windows loads then screen goes blank


Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete then when task manager comes up, look under processes, if "explorer.exe" is running end the task.

Next, go to File>run and run "explorer.exe". This should bring up your desktop and icons.
