Why is the screen black on windows 8 cannot start computer


There can be several reasons why your laptop screen is going black after logging into Windows. To start with the troubleshooting, you can see if you are able to use Safe Mode to boot into your Windows 8. To know how to boot in Safe Mode, you can refer to the following Microsoft link:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2809468

If you are able to boot in Safe Mode, you can use "msconfig" to detect the issues that may be preventing your system from performing normally. To get a better understanding about what is msconfig and how to use it, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/using-system-configuration#1TC=windows-8

If following the steps in the above mentioned link does not help, you can refer to the following HP support page for some more troubleshooting options:

Hope this will help you.

Toshiba stuck on start-up screen.


The windows files have been corrupted, I was hoping you might get into safe mode to try a system restore but your system will not allow it. If you can find your recovery disc a clean install is the best way to go. Try www.toshiba.com contact customer support about a replacement recovery disc.

Just got a proview monitor 780 with an advent tower ,we turned it on was working fine. We tried to adjust the screen resolution by desktop and it says mode not supported and we do not know how to fix it,...


You'll need to start Windows in VGA mode and adjust the display settings to a resolution supported by your monitor (preferrably it's native resolution, which can be found in the manual).

To start in VGA mode press the F8 key repeatedly, say every second, when the computer starts - eventually a boot menu will appear with an option to start in VGA mode. If VGA mode is not available, your second choice is Safe Mode.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

There is a problem with the start up files of windows. Try going into the "Start-up Repair" option of the windows, either by inserting the Windows installation CD and then rebooting the notebook or by pressing F1, F8 or F11 (depends on the manufacturer).
Please take a look at the following link from the Dell's website for further details: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_316068&isLegacy=true

To start your computer normally you must choose either of that options but the only thing you must choose is the start windows normally so that all the settings from the previous working settings will be applied in your windows start up.

I adjusted screen resolution on my HP mini notebook now when I turn on I get to Window XP then screen goes blank after that.


You selected a device-resolution that your LCD screen does not support.
Restart your computer, and immediately press the 'F8' key until you see the Windows "start-up" menu (white text over a black background). Select "Start in VGA mode" or "Start in Safe Mode".
Reset the device-resolution to a "low" value, e.g. 800-by-600, that is supported. Later, you can "tune" the resolution to the "best" value.

Windows will not start - Vista Support ad crashing it


You have installed "scareware" -- malicious software that claims to have discovered non-existent computer-viruses.

Restart in Safe Mode, and then use "System Restore" to restore your computer to an earlier date/time, i.e., _before_ you installed that "scareware". Or, in Safe Mode, try to "uninstall" the scareware.

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco


Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.


Good Luck!

SCREEN MESSAGE - MODE NOT SUPPORTED


You have set a resolution that is too high or incompatible with your monitor. I assume you are using Windows. Turn the computer on and immediately keep pressing F8 on the keyboard until the 'Windows Advanced Options Menu' appears. Use the Up and Down keys to select 'Enable VGA Mode' Press enter and your screen will work again when windows starts. Now go to the display properties and click 'Advanced' then click the 'Monitor' tab and tick 'Hide modes that this monitor cannot display' OK everthing and now you should be able to adjust the resolution without getting a blank screen again! Good luck and come back to comment soon. Regards
