Dec 20, 2017 · It keeps going in and out in hibernation or sleep mode [I guess], every 20 to 30 seconds. It shows a black screen–with no cursor, i.e. nothing. The screen has frozen before and I would just turn it off and turn it back on. And it would work. This time it doesn’t. It’s just a black screen, and turning off and on every 20-30 seconds.
I have had this problem and have been one of the lucky few to get round it, however I believe I may know the cause or part of the cause for this, and a way to get round it hopefully. I got this issue after an unfortunate power cut, the system started up but then shut down again unexpectedly, after that I got this ‘black screen of death’, I then went on to many forums to find out the best options for solving this, I knew there was a definate way to fix the problem with a full destructive recovery with the recovery partition you get with vista, however I didn’t want to lose all my data so when the computer starts up tap f8 until you get several menu options. the top option should be ‘repair my computer’, you should now have a very basic log in window which has your username, (if you have no password just press enter). now you should have several options of recovering or repairing your PC. the most successful so far is a normal windows restore which takes the computer back a few days, I would recommend a week to 2 weeks if available. once completed this should get rid of the ‘black screen of death’. once logged on run command prompt with administrative properties then type in ‘sfc /scannow’ this will hoefully find anything else which is currupt. I have found the main reason for this is actually vista’s own way of performing better on most people with this problem I spoke to had an option enabled on the hard drive by default : ‘Enable write caching on the disk’ : ‘this setting improves disk performance, but a power outage or equipment failure might result in data loss or curruption’ this option can be found by going into device manager – find your primary hard drive, right click, properties, policies. this is the closest ive found to a cause of this ‘black screen of death’
Liam10100Best answer · 117Last Monday, I was in Microsoft Word when the screen froze. The mouse pad wouldn’t work or anything. So I mistakenly hit a few buttons on the keyboard before finally turning it off. [Esc, ctrl+alt+delete, etc] Then I discovered that it wouldn’t go off, not really. It keeps going in and out in hibernation or sleep mode [I guess], every 20 to 30 seconds. It shows a black screen–with no cursor, i.e. nothing. The screen has frozen before and I would just turn it off and turn it back on. And it would work. This time it doesn’t. It’s just a black screen, and turning off and on every 20-30 seconds. I turned it off completely once or twice and removed the battery and turned it back on. Still the same problem! Someone suggested I turn the PC off and then on and hit f10 or f11 repeatedly. I tried that but it didn’t work. Nothing happens. Also, it doesn’t make a noise when I pop out the CD-rom drive. Otherwise it does, and the fan works. And when I push ctrl-alt-delete it doesn’t turn on/off. It just sits there. I can’t get anything to happen. I can’t get f8 to work either!

can any one help!!!!!37Hi I have a similar problem at the moment sorry im new not sure how to start a new topic or if I need to? when I start up my computer it stops at a black screen with white writing that gives me the opportunity to start up in safe mode, normal mode, last known working mode & another one with networkingI have tried all of these & everytime the computer switches itself off then straight back on again & I am faced with the same problem all over again. The computer has turned itself off & restarted itself in the past but i’ve always been able to get past this stage & have had it up & running. The only difference is that this time before it started not letting me on there seemed to be a virus on it as whenever you went onto the internet & tried to get onto ebay/facebook or any website a red screen came up & was warning me they were all unsafe basically it was trying to get me to buy some sort of virus software stuff from america (was in $) basically my partner has obviously clicked on something he shouldnt & given it a virus that wont let me look at anything but the search page on the internet..Is my computer broken if so is it fixable what should I do? sorry if I sound a bit thick but I’m not great on the workings of computers x30Hi
you should press f8 and continually tap as soon as it starts up, if this still doesn’t work, please write your make, spec, and operating system, and I will try my best to help.27hi guys, im having the same problem. laptop was working fine yesterday. got back earlier today, turned it on, and the part where its supposed to ask for my password, a blank screen appears and I can only see my mouse cursor. any ideas what’s wrong with it?

I pressed on “ctrl+alt+del” a few times until the task manager opened up.
FILE -> New Task -> typed -> EXPLORER.EXE
It booted up finally. One downside is that I tried restarting the computer again to see if it worked it has turned out that I have to manually run the explorer.exe each time for it to boot.
If anyone knows how to fix the manually booting up explorer.exe, please help. Thank you.11
