Preferred Solution: my computer screen WON'T turn on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: my computer screen WON'T turn on

Just about anything. Post your system model and/or specifications so we can try to figure it out.

so, when I was on my computer it just randomly shut down on me.
No warning nothing.

when i tried to start it up again my computer turns on and the fans go on.
but my computer screen stays black.
the on button for the screen is flashing green meaning its on. i tried unconnecting and connecting the screen back to the computer...still nothing.

also, my keyboard doesnt light up, and my mouse (which is connected THROUGH the keyboard) turns half on (the wheel lights up, but the image doesnt light up). so i know there is electricity running through my keyboard.

can anyone explain/help me with this scenario? i've been trying at it for a couple of days now.
any sort of advise would be great (if you need any other info ill be more than welcome to provide anything to help you help me)
 

Answer:I can't get my computer screen to turn on, please help

Sounds to me like some kind of hardware failure. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what, but I would be inclined to say some type of Motherboard problem. If the fans spin up & devices get partial power.

Are you handy and comfortable working inside a computer? If not you might see what a technician can do with it.

Here's the deal:My mom gave me her old computer when it was about 2 years old. it was working fine except that sometime the screen wouldn't come on when you started up the computer. the lights and fan would start running and then the fan would turn off and the computer screen would stay black. well usually you could just wait a few minutes and it would start on it's own, now it won't turn on at all! the start light around the start button will come on and then fan will start like normal but before the screen will come on the fan will turn off and the screen will stay completely black but the start light will still be on. i have left it on for an entire day and still nothing. i really can't wipe the whole computer out because i have important information on it. i desperately need help. I am not good with fixing things and need to get my computer running before finals. i can get additional info if needed.any help would be amazing. Thanks. 

Answer:My computer screen won't turn on!

I am wedded to the idea that your power supply is on the bonkers . There seems to be insufficient  power to the motherboard hence not enough to drive the display card. The lack of proper voltages result in the CPU resetting itself to off- mode hence stopping the fan and power supply. Much about the PC is diagnosis - sometimes right sometimes wrong - and swapping hardware that you know is good. Just borrow a good power supply and see what happens.While you're at it , take a peek at the capacitors on the motherboard...see if all the tops are flat...bulges will spell a headache !

I just got this HP pavilion 762n last year. Now whenever I turn the computer on it won't respond(Goes to a Blank Black Screen) and the only way I can make the computer respond is to go to safe mode and UN-install the Graphic Card, then restart the computer back again. Once I've done that the computer would work, but I can't watch Videos or play Video Games on the computer. There also would be these little blue lines on the computer screen (Sometimes their would be alot of the lines and sometimes the lines would be made by the trail of my mouse).

I've tried lots of ways to fix the computer. I've tried:

- Un-installing and re-installing my graphic card (Nvidia Geforce4 MX420 graphics card with TV-Out) that came with the computer.

- Rolling Back My Graphic Card.

- Updating My Drive from Windows Update.

- I've tried using a program that test my computer and tells me whats wrong with it. It said I got a problem with something like the VIDEO MEMORY CARD and I don't know what that is.

Is the Only way I can fix this is to buy another Graphic Card. I do not want to waste $200.00. Please Help Me!

Thank You.

Whenever I turn my computer on I get a black screen and it doesn't budge from there. My monitor just seems to go into sleep mode and I can't do anything. Also my dvd drive makes this horrible sound whenever I start up my computer so I swapped out the drive with another one I had around the house and it made the exact same noise. I even took out my hard drive to make sure that wasn't what was making the noise. I've never encountered such a strange problem before. I tested the optical drive in another computer and it doesn't make this noise. I just have no idea what could be causing it. Any suggestions?

P4 3.0 ghz
GeForce 6800XT 256mb PCI-E
2 gigs of RAM
Windows XP Media Center Edition
 

Answer:Blank screen when I turn my computer on.

Since no one else will try this one I will have a go.

First if you have no picture, why are you playing with the dvd drive?

Graunching noises suggest fan problems. Either a fan is clogged up with dirt or catching on an internal cable or just wearing out. Check all these including your graphics card.

At best this is your problem and restarting the fan will restart your picture.

Next best option is the power supply failing, not providing proper power to dvd drive and graphics card. Check by substitution.

If this does not work you have cooked something, this could be any or all of, memory, processor, graphics card. Depending on the specs of your other pc you may be able to check these out, one at a time, by substitution.

Post the results and good luck

Every time I turn on my computer a blue screen appears saying all these error stuff! which gave an error code of wording of USB BUGCODE

What can I do get rid of it? Cause I need to use that computer as there are some files on it I need to access. But I cannot even do anything with the pc because every time I turn it on a blue screen appears.
Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
 

Answer:help Keep getting blue screen when I turn computer on

ok, first that error code should have a bunch of numbers. Those numbers are important for looking up the actual cause of the error. USB BUGCODE seems, and I'm not sure of this, seems to indicate a possible error with a usb port or device. Do you have any usb devices plugged in when you try to boot up? You might try unplugging any one at a time for each boot up. Without the numbers I can only guess that a usb port has a problem. Hope this helps.

I recently put in an upgrade to my ram from 512 mb to 768 total Ram. I went to turn it on and I saw a spark where the P1 is at, and now the screen will not turn on, but my hard drive still turns on or runs? Did I short circuit my motherboard? could it be my video graphics card? any help on getting it back to working condition? thanks
 

Answer:My computer starts up but my screen will not turn on

Make sure you unplug mains lead after you shutdown. Remove the upgrade ram and try starting again. when you say "where the P1 is at" do you mean the power connector to the Mainboard?.

Could be a few things but i suspect you have blown a ram module or the PSU.

I turn on my computer, it begans to start up, and then the moniter just goes black and won't show the desktop or anything. It has done this every day for the past week or more and it's getting harder and harder to get onto the computer. What I do is turn the moniter on/off until it shows me a glimpse of the desktop, and then I mess with the screen saver power options (while it continues to keep going black and I have to turn the moniter on and off to get glimpes of what i'm doing), and eventually it just stops going black and works for the whole rest of the day until the next morning. I checked the FAQs and I heard people with the same situation mention video cards, but I'm not that great with computers and frankly I don't even know what that is. Help?

My computer that i own isn't working properly. Firstly, its about 4-5 years old the power button gets stuck. I've been fiddling with it from the outside to come out all the way since if it goes in all the way and doesnt come out, it keeps restarting. When i wiggle it out, it starts and goes.

Now onto my problem now. When i start up my computer, a screen pops up allowing me to press F1 for setup. if i don't click F1, my computer goes to a black screen with a _ blinking in the top right. I can't do anything from that point and when i press keys too many times, it starts beeping after i hit any key again.

Anyways if you guys could help me, I would be very thankful!
 

Answer:Turn on my computer, black screen

sounds like it may be time for an upgrade

have you made any hardware changes or installed new device drivers?

from what you describe it seems like the system is having some issues booting the operating system from the hard drive, or there could be another hardware fault causing the hangup... like the memory or motherboard itself. if you are able to view the POST screen upon startup (which displays all of the system information and keys to access BIOS etc...) then you may be able to boot from a CD-ROM to run repairs or possibly boot into safe mode by repeatedly striking the F8 key after the POST screen appears.

When I turn on my computer it shows nothing but a blank screen. Doesn't even go into bios 19 out of 20 times. Every now and then it boots into BIOS and begins loading Windows, but freezes at the loading screen. What could the problem be? A couple months earlier the computer would randomly shut down while I was using it. I'm assuming the problem might be the probably the power supply. It's an emachine t3624: http://emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T Series&model=T3624#

And yes, I know I really need to upgrade to a new computer... but I have absolutely no money I can put towards buying one at the moment. It would take me at least a couple months to be able to afford even a cheap one....

I tried changing the psu, cleaning the heatsink, and reseating everything. and removed the battery and put it back in to reset the bios. Nothing has worked so far.

So I got a hp pavilion tx510us entertainment notebook (runs Vista) and it seems to turn on (like all the lights are on and it makes noises) but the screen is black/blank or whatever. And its not just a blank screen because then I would have been able to put my pass in and then hear the turn on music and stuff. The thing is this happened before when it was still under warranty so I sent it in for free and they sent it back and it turned on and it still had on all my stuff so it must have been an easy enough solution, but when I chatted with them again I guess they don't keep track of what they did to it and they want me to send it in again and that would cost a large sum of money because its no longer under warranty. I did a hard reset a few times and took out the memory module and put it back in agian but still nothing. So, anyone have any ideas?

So a few weeks ago we had to have some viruses removed from our computer, and it seemed like it was working again. Today, when we went to turn it on, the screen would only turn on for about 30 seconds, and then it would go blank. You could still hear the computer running though. Then when we shut it down and tried to start it in safe mode, we weren't able to. It said something like "No support", but when we tried starting it how we usually do, it worked. Now it's working really slow, and the screen keeps on freezing.

Answer:Computer runs but the screen doesn't turn on

Hi -

Is it a laptop or desktop?

If laptop, try connecting an external monitor. A laptop here loses monitor a few seconds after boot due to a known hardware issue.

If desktop, try another cable +/or monitor.

ram- 4g ddr3 1600

System - windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks!!

Answer:computer can't hibernate or sleep, screen will turn off but cpu is on

It's likely a device or driver will be stopping the sleep state so what works for me is open "power options" from the control panel and set as balanced then go to change plan settings set turn off screen to never then sleep to something like 2 mins .........

now go to "change advanced power settings" and try wireless adapter in "medium power saving mode" then for sleep set hybrid sleep and hibernate to off, for USB settings "USB selective suspend" as enabled, power buttons and lid as your choice , PCI express as "moderate power settings"

It is also possible that a USB device such as bluetooth can be stopping sleep state so experiment with turning the device on or off or even unplugging while you test and make sure they are using the latest drivers ?

try that and see if if your PC will sleep, and for further debugging from an elevated cmd prompt run : powercfg -energy and note path output to system32 folder , view energy-report.html copy out of your system32 folder into an easy access folder or desktop then view in your browser for a detailed report ?

If you do get it to sleep you can go back to advanced and set hibernation on, using the hybrid sleep setting, and you can adjust your time and turn off display to your liking

let us know how it goes

Hi,
I have a problem that started about a week ago. Every time I turn my computer on in the morning, when I turn it on a strange screen comes up. It's usually something that's trying to get me to download drivers or update adobe or something like that. The screen that showed up this morning was this: hxxp://static.thehumanallegiance.com

This is the info from the TSG SysInfo:

when I try to load my computer, the computer loads but the monitor does not. I end up having to do a hard shut down and reload the computer then it usually works fine. I have tried a new cable and monitor but it does not fix the problem. I have checked the graphics card and it says it is working properly. I have run windows troubleshooter to check for errors but none are found. What could be causing this. I am running windows 10 but it was a windows 7 originally, the problem has been happening for a couple months now and i upgraded when windows 10 first came out so I don't think the upgrade is the problem either.

I was playing a game on my PC while it was storming out and the power surged. Before I could unplug my pc the power came back on and my computer started back up. After starting back up it said installing update do not turn off the computer. I waited until it was done then it brought me to a black screen with a Windows logo and a circular loading bar. I waited somewhere between 5-10minutes before holding down the power button until it turned off. Upon turning the computer back on all the fans would work and everything it would show the blue screen that says to press esc then brings me to a black screen where it would have a _ mark in the top left and beep non stop. It isnt a long beep or anything its just multiple beeps non stop until I turn it off. I have tried taking out the ram and putting it back in but it just keeps beeping. I did a mem test and it showed that nothin was wrong with the ram. The beeps are high pitched and very fast. I have a video showing what happens if there is a way to post it.

Answer:black screen after i turn my tower to my other computer on.r

If you do not see the message "No Signal" on the monitor screen, very likely it's the monitor itself which is faulty or "dead".To check if it is indeed the monitor which needs replacing, connect it to your laptop if possible (there should be a VGA port on one side of your laptop so you can connect the monitor using the same VGA cable that connects monitor to your PC). If the monitor does not work on your laptop either, you need a new monitor.However, if your tower is not starting up it won't be a faulty monitor. There is something wrong inside the tower. Get someone to check it over, maybe needs a new PSU (Power Supply Unit) which fits inside the tower.Do not rush out to buy a new monitor if the tower is not starting up as the problem will be inside the tower.message edited by phil22

Hi

My desktop keeps showing blue screens. Yesterday I was able to start it up and tried to restore to a previous point, but it wouldn't complete and gave a blue screen. Now I can't turn the computer on without a blue screen displaying. I've pulled out the old laptop to post this. So far I've copied down the info for three of them. They are as follows:

The first one I saw:
REGISTRY_ERROR
TECHNICAL INFO:
0x000000051 (0x0000000D, 0x00000001, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
Another blue screen displayed:
0x000000024 (0x00190203, 0x864401A8, 0x00000102, 0x00000000)
And the last one I saw:
0x000000024 (0x00190203, 0x86D79168, 0x00000102, 0x00000000)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Answer:Blue screen everytime I turn on computer

Your STOP 24 error...indicates a problem with either a key system file, your partition/file structure, or your hard drive.

See 24 in left column at http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm .

The Stop 51 error is somewhat ambiguous, but...since part of the error message indicates a registry problem, I would believe that.

System mamufacturer and model?

hp s5623 windows 7
I turn the computer on and the fans start there are no beeps and the dvd opens and closes fine. I cannot enter bios at all.
The hp blue splash screen is on the monitor with three options F10 (setup) Esc (boot menu) and F11 (system recovery). When I shut it off and restart; while pressing the F10 the screen comes up saying it is entering setup, but never happens. Same with the Esc. F11 doesn't even pretend to work.
I do hope the team of Tim and friends can help. :banghead
 

Answer:i turn the computer on, but there is no beeps and i cannot get past the hp screen.

Re: i turn the computer on, but there is no beeps and i cannot get past the hp screen

First: Remove any media from the floppy drives, CD/DVD drives, USB ports, and memory card reader slots, and disconnect all non-essential devices (printers, scanners, external hard drives, and similar). Leave only the keyboard, mouse, and monitor connected to the computer.
Next press F10 repeatedly, even before the HP screen appears and see if you can get into the BIOS.

Startup problems are outlined here at HP

HI,
My problem started back when i tried to install windows 7 on another disk, but it would not. Now i did this while my primary windows 7 hard drive was already istalled. after i gave up on trying to get windows to install onto this secondary hard drive, i rebooted the computer to find that my primary ssd would not load windows, and simple came to a black screen that said:

Remove disks or other media.
Press any key to restart

then i would press a key and it would say:

Reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.

I have no recovery disk and most definitely do not understand what remove disks or other media means because I removed the windows installer dis and tried again but nothing happened. Please help, i am so confused, thankyou.

My wifes laptop has developed a problem. On booting it starts with the "Windows starting " logo and then goes to a black screen and goes no further. It looks like the hard drive is still flashing away giving the impression that underneath it is still working but no picture. We want to use the repair disc that came with the laptop but because we cant see anything to shut the computer down via windows we are having to use the power button and therefore it prompts to start up again in safe mode because it was shut down unusually. We want to close it down completely and let the repair disc do its work on boot up from fresh start. Because we cant see anything on the screen to initiate shut down via windows is there another way of shutting down completely for the above reasons.
Also do I need to press f2 and tell the system boot from the cd (repair disc) or can I leave settings as is and it will do it automatically. Answers appreciated asap. Many thanks

Answer:How else do I turn off windows when computer has black screen.

On many laptops pressing and releasing the on/off button acts as a re-set but if you hold the power button down for 5 to 10 seconds the machine will turn off completely.

Hi,
I have a problem that started about a week ago. Every time I turn my computer on in the morning, when I turn it on a strange screen comes up. It's usually something that's trying to get me to download drivers or update adobe or something like that. The screen that showed up this morning was this: hxxp://static.thehumanallegiance.com

What is this? It seems like they always start with the word static in the address. Is it a virus and how do I get rid of it or get it to stop?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello, this is a long story and ill include as much detail so itll be a thorough diagnosis of what is going on with my laptop. So, the problem started early this summer, my computer was doing fine until one day it crashed. The first crashes were green and purple screens, I needed to turn the power off and on to restart it. The weird thing is that it just came out of the blue, there were no weird things going on before that. So after that day the crashes started to come more often. First it was 1 a day apart, then it was 2 days and the more often. It came to the point that every time I played a video game it crashed, but it was fine in the desktop. But then, after some days it started crashing in the desktop. So finally, I sent it off to repairs. It came back and there was only 1 check in the paper that stated what they repaired. It was "Windows Operating System reinstall". When I saw that I was pretty sure the problem was going to come back fairly soon. So, to my surprise, the computer worked fine for 4 days. And then the crashes started coming again. Frustrated (this is my 2nd alienware with problems and the 4 time Ive sent one to repair), I just put the laptop aside into the desktop, it wasnt connected to the power the entire time. So finally, today, I try to see how its doing. I connect the power and I try to turn it on, and its not turning on. Ive tried draining the remaining power by removing the battery and pressing the button. Ive tried turning it on without ... Read more

Answer:First white screen crash and now my computer doesnt turn on

Ordonuk mate hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but I had an individual earlier this week with very similar issues as you but the only difference was it was a new desktop that I had set up for him about six months ago.
The upshot was it would not boot even into safe mode and it was ending up with just a black screen or not turning one whatever I advised him to try and eventually he had to return it to Lenovo and the motherboard was bricked from what we don't know = power surge etc ? Maybe this has happened to your wayward machine?
Having said that I suppose you are getting power at the adaptor??

First time posting, and not very educated when it comes to computers so bear with me. My screen cracked today on my T430. It still had image on the screen but very distorted. I have a working backup T430. I pulled the screen out of the back up and put in my main comp. My main will boot up (you can even hear the windows jingle but the screen had no power. I then tested both the good screen and cracked screen on the backup T430 and both lit up fine. But neither screen will work on the main T430. i then switched the cable that goes from the motherboard to screen but still same situation, works fine on the back up but not main. I hooked it up to my TV through the HDMI cable and I get the display/homescreen on the TV, and I can use the laptop like that. One thing I did notice is that when I boot the laptop up or shut it down there is a very very very slight change in the screen darkeness. I only notice this because the sun was behind me and shining on the screen. When I noticed this it had the craked screen installed. I tried to adjust the screen brightness with the laptop running but it didnt change anything Do you guys/gurls have any input or solutions? Thanks in advanced

The computer then booted it as it would do when i turn it on but now the screen stays black?

Anyone have any suggestions what to do? as its just black and I can't see anything to get into the bios or such?

Has this problem just started? Were there any hardware changes made recently that may have caused this? For example, did you just add the other GPU in and then bridge them with the SLI?

I'm wondering if this may be a PSU problem. The PSU may not be powerful enough when the system is loaded up.

While using the notebook, I realized there was no more sound so I went to a support site for troubleshooting. I changed the settings and restarted, but there was still no audio coming out. Suddenly the screen went dark and the LEDs on the keyboard dock became illuminated. Then they turned off and the computer has not turned on again. The charging port LED on the keyboard docking station still lights up when plugged in, but not the tablet, even when plugged in directly. No vibration, sound, or any lights when pressing the power button to boot up the tablet. What happened?

Hello, Im new to forums so please bare with me.
My problem started when i dropped my cellphone on my Envy m6 1160la. The screen froze and i started hearing a feint beeping sound. I left it like that for a while, since i could turn the leds on and off. After it failed to work again i turned it off only to turn it back on and be greeted with the same feint beeping sound and no hp logo or loading. After a while the phrase "Checking media" "fail" would come up twice and then a blue box that would say something and then turn off my computer. I changed the HDD and the beeping stopped but the same thing happened. I turned off secure mode but then it said i needed to install an OS and something about 3fo hardrive. I then tested both hardrives and the one that gives me a beeping sound approves the memory test but fails the dst short and long and the smart (dont know what this is), and the one without the beeping approves all. Now after all this I came ro the conclusion that me HDD was bad and that i had to install a new OS on another one (dont know if i was right) but since the HDD that wasnt beeping ran on win 7, I thought if i changed to legacy i would be able to boot up my computer. After i changed it it restarted and i could hear the HDD spinning and the fan and leds would turn on but the screen wouldnt and wont. Any help on my current and previous problem would be much appreciated.

Answer:turn on the computer and power light goes on but screen remains black

If this is a notebook PC, try connecting an external monitor to the VGA port. If the display comes up on the external monitor, it points to an issue with the screen.

If there is no display on an external monitor connected to a notebook PC, it points to an issue with the motherboard and will require a professional diagnosis.

Hope this helps.

Hi. My HP 15 touch smart notebook crashed a few weeks ago and I just had the computer for less than 6 months and I still have at least 6 more months of warranty on it. But I had accidentally took the battery pack out while putting the computer on charge and I put it back in and tried to turn my computer on, and so far for the last several weeks I couldn't do my school work bc it won't turn on. There is no noise, the fan won't turn, the screen won't display. The only that works is the charging light (orange when its dead and is charging; white when its half charged and is charging). I have tried all methods to get it to turn back on and none have helped me so far. Is the only thing I can do is send it off to be repaired? Or do I need to just buy replacement parts?

Hello,

I tried searching this and found people with similar problems, but no clear solution. My netbook screen stopped working over the weekend. I'm actually writing this right now on the netbook connected to an external monitor. It came with Windows XP but I upgraded to Windows 7 a few months ago (whenever the RC trial version ran out.)

I don't think I did any Windows Updates or software installs prior to this problem (possibly microsoft security essentials update.) The screen appears to be lighting, but completely black. I checked in the device manager and it claims the generic plug and play monitor that represents the built in screen is operating just fine. I've used the function keys to try to disable and enable the screen, and while connected to the external monitor I've changed resolutions, as well as the behavior between the screens (duplicate, extend, etc) all to no avail. I'm pretty stumped here as to how this happened or what can be done.

I have no idea what is wrong with my computer......

Here is the problem:

I am using Windows XP

Last night i used Norton Antivirus and did a full system scan it came up with no viruses. This morning i turned on my computer used AIM (AOL Instant Messanger) and talked to no one. Next I started to play Battlefield 1942 offline. As I am playing the game freezes and simultaniously makes a noise (this noise was not a beep it was like internal parts or something). I waited and the game started to work again about 10 seconds later the same thing happened (it freezing and making the noise) but this time it did not start working again it stayed frozen. So I hit the restart button on the outside of my computer and as its restarting it brings me to a screen that asks me how i would like to start the computer safe mode, last good known configuration, start windows normally, etc. After I have selected my choice the windows xp loading window comes up for about enough time for the loading bar to scroll across twice. For a split second a BLUE SCREEN then comes up and goes away. No matter what options I choose (safe mode, last best known configuration, or start windows normally, etc.) it will always try to load, go to blue screen, and start all over again.

If anything needs to be clarified plese let me know and i will clarify it.

**Please can someone help me it would be greatly appriciated**

Hello,

My hubby was surfing the internet when it suddenly restarted itself and went to a blue screen of death, then it went to the black screen that gave options to boot up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration, and start windows normally. No matter which you select it goes to windows icon and restarts again going to the blue screen:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or back up utilities. Check your hard drive configuration. and check for updated drivers. Run CHKDS /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:

*** Stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203. 0x86FC7E10. 0xc0000102. 0x00000000)

The only other thing I can do is go to the First Bios set up utility
I went to tools and checked the Hard drive, it passed all three tests. So I know this much its not my hard drive. Other then that I can do nothing else with the computer, I even tried changing the order of booting but its stuck on hard drive it won't let me choose the other options. So I have a feeling that even if I find my Hard reboot cd's it won't work.

I am operating on Windows XP and my AVG free antivirus is saying that a trojan is infecting the following: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\agp440.sys I have scanned this file with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and the scan says there is no virus present in that file. Lately my computer has been going to a blue screen with white writing for no reason lately saying that there is either a problem with some newly installed software ( i haven't installed any new software i dont think) or a driver or something.

Hello Folks,

I'm not sure if my issue is with hardware (possibly MB?) or graphics card, so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong section. The first problem I was having was random blue screens of death that displayed graphic card driver issues. I was able to remedy that by updating my graphic drivers and have not had an issue since.

However, ever since then I have been running into another hardware or graphics-related issue that is random and completely stumping me. What is happening is, I will be on my computer, leave and turn my monitor off, and (randomly) when I come back to use my computer again, when I turn on the monitor there is no signal and a black screen (e.g. when I turn my monitor on my desktop will pop up and the light on my monitor will turn blue, when it doesn't turn on there will be a black screen and the light on the monitor stays yellow as if it is idle). I have tried swapping out the monitor to see if that was the issue and the same problem persists, so it does not appear to be my monitor or VGA cables.

The only way I can temporarily fix this issue is to reboot/restart my computer and viola! The monitor works again and I can see everything. This issue is very random. Sometimes I can go weeks without an incident, other times this is happening a couple times a week. I honestly don't know if it's my motherboard or video card or what. My PC isn't overheating, I'm not overclocking, and all of my drivers are updated.

That's usually the first thing to try. Let it get some juice in it and then try turning it on. If that doesn't work, you may need to download the WDRT program on your computer and plug your phone in there to reset it.

I have a bit of a strange issue with my computer. Forgive me if I'm a little too descriptive, but I'm not sure which details are relevant and which are not for such a problem. First, the specs:

Model: eMachines T2984
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel Celeron D Processor 340, 2.93 GHZ, 256K L2 Cache, 533 MHZ FSB
Power Supply Unit: Bestec Model: ATX-250-12E REV: P7
Motherboard: I can't tell, but it appears to be an Intel motherboard by the number of Intel labels on it
RAM: 512 MB DDR SD originally, added 1 GB a couple of months ago
Let me know if you need anything else...

Yesterday, I got home from shopping around 1PM, and I tried to start the computer. I pushed the power button, and nothing happened. I checked all of the cords, and they were all plugged in. Not knowing what else to do, I opened up the case to see if there was something obviously wrong. The only thing that I noticed (other than a bunch of dust) was that the power supply unit was still hot. I shut the computer down about 5 hours earlier after about 20 minutes of use, so it seemed strange that the power supply was still hot. I unplugged the computer just in case there was some sort of fire hazard.

At this point, I called a friend who suggested that the problem might be with the motherboard or the power supply unit.

A few hours later, I plugged it back in to try to get it to work. As soon as I plugged it in, the entire unit suddenly started "running" by itsel... Read more

Answer:Computer Doesn't Turn on, Fans and Some Lights Turn on Automatically

I would suspect that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is going south. If you have a spare one laying around, install it and see if the problem goes away.
You can buy a new,better PSU from Newegg for about $40.00. I have used a Thermaltake 430 watt in one of my machines for some time now and it works well.
You will have to check the size of your PSU to be sure a new one will fit into the eMachine.
Here's the page with that PSU on it. It's the last one on the list.

All the fans are working even the fan on the power supply, the motherboards lights are on. My graphic card in on the motherboard. I think it might be my power supply because when I first put it together I didn't plug in the smaller power connection to the motherboard and the same thing is happening, black screen. It's like my computer isn't giving my monitor any feed. I will have more info when I get home. I can't get in to bios or safe mode.

One of the non-profit's I support purchased eight Dell Vistro 1000 laptops, and the one I am using has a neat Hibernate button on the "Turn off computer" screen. And this is NOT one that appears because I held down the shift key and clicked "Standby" ... instead, it is just to the left of the "Standby" button.

I hibernate my desktop machine a lot, and would like to have that little feature on it (or, better yet, an icon on my decktop that I could click and the hibernation fun would begin without intervention).

Any ideas???

Oh, for those who don't know what the Vistro line is from Dell, this is a bare-bones laptop for $399 that runs XP:

http://tinyurl.com/3gpx3h

The one I am using has a Mobile AMD Sempron Processor (3600+), 1/2 GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, XP/Home, and is noticably slower than my desktop rig, but for $400, it ain't bad. With a little imagination you can use Dell's configurator to add $500 to that, but then that defeats the purpose of a stripped-down XP machine.

But I don't want to hijack my own thread! Any ideas on the hibernate button?

Hello everyone, I have an HP Envy j100t which I purchased in 2014. ever since yesterday it's been starting but the screen remains pitch black, no display at all. It won't get to start up page, just remains a blank dark screen even though the power light is on and there's no battery issue because it was on charge all night and the AC adopter is still in.   I keep on having to get to get to the BIOS recovery screen, letting that update, and then it proceeds to restart. However when it restarts, it never gets to start up and there is the same dark screen- no display.  I have to always update BIOS, take out the battery and AC adapter, put them back in, and then it will start. Or sometimes even that whole process might not restart it.  Please help!

Within this network there are only two computers, the one I use (as client) in my house and the other one is the host computer as I mentioned earlier.

How do I know that the host computer is being turned on or off?

The purpose is to know so that I can use all the bandwidth from the modem when the host computer is not turn on. Because there are no restrictions on bandwidth from the host computer, and I just wanted to use all the available bandwidth only when the host computer is not turned on.

Both computers use Windows 7.

I use my laptop for school and, by keeping it on power saving mode, usually get through two school days without charging my laptop. Ever since I've downloaded Windows 10, (1) my computer doesn't shut off all the way when I close it, which drains the battery, and (2) every time I charge it, it turns off the power saving mode, which is really annoying. This is especially annoying when I don't notice it isn't on and my battery drains even faster. Is there any reason it won't turn off? Is there a setting I can use to keep the power saving mode on at all times?

Answer:Why won't my computer turn off all the way and why can't my computer stay on power saving mode?
