    Black screen of death - Common solutions fail


    I'm recieving a black screen with cursor after login. A common enough problem, but so far none of the common solutions have changed anything.I can access the Ctrl+Alt+Delete screen but the task manager won't launch. Clicking that option takes me back to my black screen with a brief loading ring next to my cursor. Nothing happens after that. As a result the solutions that use the task manager to forcibly launch explorer.exe are not available to me. Solutions involving safe mode are also unavailable. The problem persists in an identical manner, though at lower resolution, to a normal boot.I have

    Black Screen Of Death

    The Black Screen of Death is caused by a Display driver issue.
     
  3. Almost Black Screen of Death?


    Okay, so my sister was trying to watch a Blu Ray DVD in my computer last night, but of course it didn't work. She ended up watching a normal DVD and it was fine. After she finished, I turned off my computer normally. This morning, however, I tried turning on my computer and it gave me the normal code screen thing with quite text and a black background. This time, instead of booting normally it said "Press [Esc] to boot... (instert countdown here)" I waited and didn't press anything and it just came to a screen that was almost black and almost blue. The cursor didn't pop up and when I pressed Crl, Alt, and Delete it went back to the white text code screen. I attempted pressing Esc like it said, but it all led back to the almost black screen of death.
    I called my one of my family members for help because they are a tech guru, and they suggested unplugging everything (which I had done and proved unsuccessful), taking out the RAM and putting it back it, and still nothing. They then suggested pressing F8 when I boot up my computer, and it comes to the pop up window with two things to select. One that's called Sata and the other that's called CD or something. I tried selecting both of them, but yet again, the almost black screen of death.
    After my several attempts, my family member told me to try to safe reboot using the CD we have saved for my computer as a backup. There was no DVD in my computer during all these attempts.
    Was this caused by the Blu Ray, and any ideas on what to do? Thanks!

    Black Screen of Death

    If when you power on your computer, you get no Splash Screen Logo (Dell, HP, etc.) and all you ever see is black, that normally indicates a hardware problem.

    I suggest that you get it tested by a Computer Tech.

    Cheers.
