The desktop is blackscreen


When you say your desktop has a black screen does that mean after your computer boots up its black or even right when you turn it on you do not even see the the Bios screen.

I know you wrote desktop but are you just using that as a term for a a computer so Is is a laptop or desktop?

There are three possibilities,
1) Your screen died
2) Your graphics card died ( if its a desktop it usually an easy fix, if its a laptop most times its unfix-able )
3) if its a laptop can you see a very faint image? if so there is something called an inverter that can be replaced to fix that issue

It should run nicely on Win7-64.
Download drivers from Dell.com otherwise NVIDIA won't run and give you a blue screen.
Hope that helps.

Hello, When I start my laptop after about 3 min. it freezes. If I let it load to just the login page and let it sit there it still freezes (the blinking cursor will just stop blinking). If I hurry and...


hi there,
thanks for providing the OS type.
The issue may be with any hardware or software you recently installed /uninstalled.,

It may also be due to the reason that some Hardware has stopped its function alltogather or has got a wrong update.

We may diagnose the issue by;
1. restart in Safe mode. Resolved? No
2. Restart F8: VGA mode

Still not fixed?

3. restart in safemode again,
Go Start>Run> Msconfig
startup tab;
uncheck not necessary items .(You need to be most decisive in this step)
4. ok.
5. shtdown.
6. reboot in safe mode

Worked?

Last resort:
Reinsall OS:

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

Will not go beyond windows xp screen


1.When you first power on the system (before windows loads) press f8.

2. then select "start windows in safe mode"

3. Id system loads windows in safe mode try running a antivirus to see if you have any infections that may be causing the issue (free ones include avg and malrware bytes)

4. If you do have infections you will want to back up any crucial data and then reinstall windows using your recovery discs.

try these steps first then depending on results we may have to dig deeper.

Bootsafe error on hp compaq notebook notebook pc while booting


Boot from the XP disc and press R at the first screen. This takes you into Recovery Console. Run these commands:

fixboot c:
fixmbr
exit

The computer will restart and hopefully it will load Windows.

If not, is your computer making clicking sounds?

Assist with an Operating System start issue? PC is a Gateway GT5228


the following will re-install windows without destroying your stuff but you must follow it exactly !!!!!!!
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. To Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" height="21" alt="To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER." src="http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/note.gif" width="15" border="0" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
  7. good luck beergut707
