Question about Computers & Internet

Home screen blank

My computer starts up when I turn it on. It goes through all of the bios and then goes blank. It doesn't take me to the Vista screen - it just sits there with nothing on it as though it's dozing off. I don't know what part is affected so I will click on graphics card as a subcategory.

    I installed my Kodak z812 camera but I think it was at the time I built the computer. It was working and suddenly stopped after running the bios information. Vista windows never shows up like it did before. The monitor is an LG - the rest of the computer is various brands - I started from scratch!

    I have two computers connected to this monitor (thank goodness, now). My old computer, which has all of my business activity on it so thankfully, I kept it otherwise, it would all be gone. It is on the analog connection. The new computer is on the digital connection so I just switch back and forth with the "source" button on the monitor. Is this a problem?

  • Kathy1226 Sep 04, 2008

    I have tried disconnecting the monitor and it still isn't functioning. Like I said before, on my LG monitor, I have my old (Gateway) connected as an analog and my newly built computer connected as digital. From the monitor, I can press the source button and switch between the two computers. The old one works okay - just real slow, but when I turn on the new one it runs the bios, then the Microsoft loading bar comes up at the bottom, then the monitor just fades to nothing. There is communication between the keyboard, monitor and computer but the Vista screen never appears. This has been going on since April. What am I doing wrong?

    I can't get the "home" screen to come up. I tried loading the CD for the monitor in the drive but it does nothing. After running the bios, the screen goes blank.

Have you recently installed any new hardware? If so what did you install and did this problem start after the installation?

Blank Computer Screen


First I will suggest you to Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including Black screen
After that restart your computer in safe mode by press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode
Inn safe mode Update your graphic drivers from your system manufacturer site
If this is helpless then simply get Reginout that cleans your computer of temp files, history and cookies. Its also used to fix any registry errors.
Hopefully it will help you

To disable all unwanted start up items in vista, please follow the mentioned steps-

1. Click on the Vista start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.
windows_start_logo.gif 2. Type MSCONFIG in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the MSCONFIG program that appears in the search results.

Or, if you're already logged into Vista as an administrator, you may see a box asking you if you would like to continue.
admin_user_account_control.gif
4. Once you have successfully passed through Microsoft's User Account Control roadblock, Vista will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.
vista_msconfig.gif
4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary, others are simply a waste of RAM.

Please uncheck the ones that you don't want.

2- To change home page in Internet Explorer, please follow below mentioned steps-

1. Click on the Vista start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.
