My daughter has an HP Pavilion Slimline desktop...OS Vista..today on startup all she got was a black screen..she has tried windows repair & system restore.. no joy.
Any help anyone ??
Maybe graphics driver needing updating.Try device manager to see if it finds any faults.
if graphics card fitted try a remove aand refit as may have worked loose in slot
also try cable connections
is power reaching monitor?
tried another monitor or TV?
Yes.. monitor ok....will look at device manager when I give her a visit tomorrow.
Am a bit puzzled how you are able to try the solutions (apart from Fruit Bat /\0/\'s) if all you have is black screen...?
Scrub that - I should have read the title better - works in Safe Mode
Ok didn't read correctly myself either.
If its OK in safe mode and no go in normal then its the graphics driver that is at fault.
Drivers are here
download to another PC and put on memory stick
In safe mode uninstall the driver for the graphics
reboot into normal mode
windows should find new hardware and reinstall the driver
if screen again goes blank the rebbot to safemode uninstall
reboot this time do not let windows install the driver directly but point it toward the driver on the memory stick and install from there.
It,s Working..You're a genius.
Many Many Thanks
It's gone again..
think you may need to boot to safe mode and run the disk checking tool from disk management.
then reinstall the driver.
