URGENT: Screen Goes Black After Windows Starts Up  Topic is solved

Postby Gra » Wed Aug 08, 2007 8:58 pm

Hi Guys

All of a sudden today my 2010 starts up with the Fujitsu-Simens screen as normal, followed by the the Windows XP (Home edition) start up screen but when it should show the desktop icons it goes black. It is not dead as there is light in the black screen, it's just black.

Has anyone any ideas what I can do to fix it? As with all these things I need it to travel and work on over the weekend.
Thanks and regards.

Does safe mode work? (press F8 before Windows loads)
Maybe it's only a configuration problem, you could then reset the graphics settings.

Did you already try the Fn-key shortcut to switch displays?

Many thanks Aaron

The FN key didn't work but I got in via safe-mode and ran a system restore and all is well again (phew). Anyone any ideas what could have cause it?
Thanks and regards.

Hmm, no...
Well, we can hope it was "only" a weird Windows or driver problem ;-)
