Graphic Cards :: Windows 8 Black Screen - No Signal To Display
Jun 2, 2013
For last couple days I've been going through a minor computer issue. I wasn't doing anything special, I just turned the computer off. And the next day the problem occured; After bios and Windows 8 loading screen ( the little dots going round, just below the windows 8 icon ) my screen goes black and there's no signal to the display. I've already tried formatting my hdd and installing windows 8, also tried doing Reset option, from the Windows 8 troubleshot system. I can't access my Safe Mode, because it tells that Windows can't finish the installation in safe mode ( After installing the new system I format all the data and it goes just fine until the windows icon and "Preparin your devices" sign. It goes 100% and gets black again.
I know how to select the second screen options, however, my Surface Pro and our Samsung Laptop both running Windows 8 cannot detect a second monitor/screen. We are connecting via the HDMI port, but it will not display no matter what option we choose nor whether we run it from the desktop or apps. This is what we use for work to display presentations for clients.
I just purchased a new windows 8 PC. I was attempting to hook the computer up to my tv through hdmi (the pc has no VGA input) and when I went through the normal paces to put the display on my tv (display desktop only on 2), the signal did not transfer and there is no display on either my tv or pc! how to revert the display back to my pc monitor without being able to see anything? Acer support was less than useful. It's an acer aspire z3-605 all-in-one pc.
I'm using Windows 8.1pro,also I use HDMI to sometime output video files on a TV screen,that works fine. HDMI cable is always plugged in,primary display is set to my computer monitor.I don't always use TV screen and because of existing cable connection my OS extends image to second screen and my mouse cursor alway disappear when it goes to borders,that is an annoying situation,is there a way to disable/eanble extend display on second screen without unplug the cable,just like I can set default output sound device (computer/hdmi sound) ?
I have a laptop where my LCD is broken on the left side, but the right side works fine. Is there a way I can change my display to only show on the right side? I've managed to make the display horizontally smaller, but I can't figure out how to change the center to the right side. This is annoying because I have to re-size every window every time I open it, and then I have to constantly scroll back and forth on web pages. I'd rather be able to maximize and have it only on the right side. See the attached picture to see what I'm talking about.
I installed an EVGA GT630 1GB but it doenst work properly with Windows 8 Pro x64. All I have is a black screen, but the computer isnt freezing, 'cos I can hear the logon and shutdown sounds. I've tested it on Server 2003 R2 x64 (XPDM) and it worked just fine.
My computer randomly shutdowns when I use it for a while maybe 2hrs or 3, reboots by itselfs and windows cannot boot back, getting a black screen and nothing happens, So i manually turn it off and turn it on again to make it work. Sometimes it doesn't even want to work, black screen after multiple reboots So i need to syster restore it, sometimes that also doesn't work and i need to reset it completely.
At first i thought it was the new drivers i installed for my nvidea geforce gt640, the 331 version. I heard it was making pcs crash like mine does, so i downgraded the driver to 306 and it works for longer but the crash happened once again after a while, and after a windows 8 reset (deleted everything and reinstalled by itself). So this is a fresh Windows 8 i believe but still does crash.
After the crash that happened tonight, i restarted my pc and realised one of my fan in my pc is going extremely fast at random times but not for long. I went closer to hear which one was doing that and it seems to be the fan on my video card, I also touched my card and its very HOTTTTTT close to burning my hand ".".
My pc has been cleaned yesterday by my step dad, had lots of dust, even in the video cards fan, but now is clean and still overheating. Using a 350W PS which i heard is not really good and that i should upgrade really soon. CPU Temp is fine, all fans are working properly, I believe my video card is broken or my PS not giving it enough power or something?
The auto reboots are annoying, making me have to restore every time and sometimes reset Windows 8. It seems to only happen when i do lots of stuff at once like mixing via audacity and having x2 perfect world clients up, plus radio streaming live.
PC Specs: System Information Time of this report: 12/23/2013, 04:58:47 Machine name: ESSENZEDNB Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_gdr.121023-1503) Language: French (Regional Setting: French) System Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
i installed windows 8 on my new pc who includes Shappire 7870 xt boost and monitor Samsung T220. whether i turned off the monitor manually or it turns off automatic by power saver, sometimes the monitor shows only black screen. The monitor does turns on, it's light turn on, but all i get is black screen.
i also have I5 4570 and Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H.after i installed windows, i installed the motherboard drivers, includes Intel HD Graphics 4600. Could it conflicts with the ATI's driver?
also, when i connect the monitor to the motherboard it works fine (so far at least). but games doesn't run smoothly.
I will try to post a dump file the next chance I have in getting into safe mode. I have an Asus CM6870-CA010S with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 card. It has been running like a dream since I got it in April, then I performed the 8.1 update, and innocently updated the drivers. Bad plan. For the past week I've fallen into the labyrinth of uninstalling the card, subsequent iterations of the drivers, clearing registries, performed the "Refresh," all after reading the forums here, on Nvidia's boards, anywhere I can get logical info.
I finally found what I thought was the perfect recipe, uninstalling totally in safe mode, deleting the folders orphaned from uninstalls, cleaning the registry, disabling Window's automatic downloads for drivers and hardware... etc. I had solid uptime for an hour, and I'm not a gamer, and hadn't yet tested my main objectives- Photoshop and Premiere. But HD video was great, and I finally thought I had it licked. Then, black screen. I have no BSODs. The system seems to shut down so fast that it doesn't have time to make dump files, and WhoCrashed.exe keeps pointing to nvlddmkm.sys as the culprit when a dump is made, with either pagefile or IRQL not less or equal errors. I'm so done.
After trying virtually every solid recommendation I can find, I'm about to throw in the towel and either get a whole other brand of graphics card, or take it to the super expensive judgmental hipster repair shop. This post is my last hope, and I'll try to get a dump file the next chance it gives me enough uptime to collect one- and getting into Safe Mode with F8 is seemingly very random.
I wonder with this problems that has just started today. I have an Acer Aspire V5 which has just been updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. This laptop is used for training and is usually connected to a training monitor for students to follow along with the trainer.
This has worked perfectly until I updated to Windows 8.1. When I connect to the training monitor I get a message saying 'Input Signal Out of Range, reset to 1280 x 1080 60ghz. There isn't a setting for the above resolution. Everything works fine until I connect to the secondary monitor. Annoyingy the message remains on that screen - I can't remove it.
My problem is that I can't change resolution on my laptop's display with win 8. It's quite an old, Toshiba Satellite M70. I installed win 8 directly from XP. Everything is working fine except this. I tried to install the old drivers in compatibility mode, but says the system requirement is not enough. Do I have any chance to make it work?
When I try to change my video adapter the only option I get is Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
I have a Nvidia Geforce Go 7400
Operating System: Windows 8 Pro 32-bit System Manufacturer: Dell Inc. System Model: Latitude D820 BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A10 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7400 @ 2.16GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
Here's what I've done - besides googleing for the past 5 hours...: Updated intel chipset Tried the guide here: How to Fix NVIDIA Driver Update Installer Error - YouTube ---- this got me a little further but as soon as it tries to access my tv the installation dies (the time of a gfx installation where the screen flickers) Removed the windows driver. Uninstalled old nvidia drivers.
I have a Lenovo Flex 14 - win 8.1 (64 bit).I have restored my pc and after the recovery the option to adjust the display brightness has "disappeared". The option is no longer in place in the charms bar or in Power Option and the adjustment keys (F11 and F12) are not working either.
I just upgraded to 8.1 and now a game that I play called theHunter wont launch. When I run the launcher it comes up with an error saying 'No Appropriate Display Modes'. It was working fine on Windows 8. The support at the Hunter hasn't been very useful and despite trying a number of different things I can't seem to solve this issue.
I'm having a terrible time after reformatting my 8.1 machine (desktop).Every time I try to adjust a display setting, such as gamma, some other process overrides it in real-time. Meaning I can't calibrate my display in windows color calibration, or even in my nvidia control panel, it instantly resets it while you're adjusting the slider. I don't know what this could possibly be, but I've uninstalled the Dell display manager, so I assume it's not the monitor overriding it. I also have nvidia control panel set to 'use other applications' for display configuration.
I use Windows 8 on a rMBP, but frequently use an external monitor that's 1080p. Since it scales 200% for the HiDPI of the rMBP, it's way too big on the external. Is there a way I can have it scale only the internal monitor, and leave the external one at 100%?
Both primary and secondary displays are 1080p, native. Windows says both are running at 1920x1080, but I can visually see the secondary display is running a lower resolution. The GPU is GeForce GTX 560M, with the latest drivers. I didn't have this issue with Windows 7.
i bought new computer few days ago.i have sapphire HD 7750 2gb ddr3 - and im installed the driver for that by the CD but after i want to play some games . i get this massage Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.
I am on a laptop with a gtx 765m. I am trying to connect a thunderbolt port to a display port monitor. My understanding is that thunderbolt is backwards compatible with display port. But, for the life of me I can not get it to work.
I am using a minidisplay port -> display port cord.
I have ended up hooking the monitor up with an hdmi cord for now. FYI the monitor is a 2560x1440 monitor if that matters.
I amm using windows 8.1 64 bit and everytime I open Photoshop cs6 for the time after a boot I get this message 'Display driver has stopped working but has recovered', my system can handle photoshop so I know thats not the problem. My graphics card is a AMD Radeon HD 8330.
In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.
Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.
So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?
When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.
So I'm running 2xR9 290X (crossfire) with 3xQnix Qx2710 monitors. One of the qnix monitors was purchased with HDMI/DisplayPort connectors along with the usual DVI connector (normally these monitors only come with the D-DVI input)
I had a 2 monitor (with just the two DVI-only monitors) setup for a while that was working fine.
Since installing the third monitor I'm experiencing several weird things:
- On boot, until the Windows login screen comes up (Windows 8.1), there is nothing on the non-primary DVI monitor (so my setup is my primary monitor is one of the two DVI monitors, and then the left and right monitors is another DVI-only and the DP monitor).
- If the monitors go to sleep, or I put the computer to sleep and wake it up, any windows that were on the non-primary DVI monitor are moved over to the primary DVI monitor. Windows on the DP monitor do not move in this configuration.
- Within CCC, after sleep / monitors off, I have to restart CCC's control of the color settings for the non-primary DVI monitor. (I'm forgetting what the actual button says, but it's the button under the Display color controls settings where you can manipulate the R/G/B channels - I have to use the GPU for color matching since the monitors don't have any inherent ways to change R/G/B levels
If I only connect the two DVI monitors this is not an issue.
If I connect one DVI and the DP monitor, after sleep/wake any windows that were on the DP monitor are moved over to the primary monitor (again, note that this didn't happen when all 3 monitors were connected).
I have tried the newest version of CCC, as well as the current beta version - same behavior in both.
I have tried using HDMI instead of DP - same behavior
Aspects of this sound similar to the issues discussed in this post : [URL] ......
What I don't understand is why the second DVI monitor is acting so oddly when all 3 monitors are connected. Why would there be no picture when the computer boots?
I'm not sure if this problem is with the GPU, but I think it might be a good place to start.
Up until recently, I was running Windows 8.1 on a custom build with the following: Athlon II X4 610E processor, Silverstone NT01-E cooler, MSI 890-GX MoBo, 4GB OCZ DDR3/1333 RAM, Zotac GeForce GT 240 GPU, AuzenTech X-Fi Home Theater Sound Card, Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green, Corsair GT 120 SSD, Samsung SH-B083 ODD, and Silverstone NightJar ST40F PSU.
With this build I noticed that there was a certain tendency for the screen to "flicker" when the video changed (ie, starting a Netflix video, a Hulu video, movie on WMC, etc). It generally occurs at the start of a video and it's conclusion, being most annoying on Hulu because it does this at the start of a segment, just before the commercial break, and during the commercials.
Since I'm transitioning to gaming on my PC, I replaced several components, upgrading to a EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked GPU, Intel Core i5-4570 processor (stock cooler), CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) RAM, ASUS Q87M-E LGA 1150 MoBo, and CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W PSU. I also reinstalled Windows 8.1.
I had hoped that this would clear up my issue as a side benefit, but that is not the case. In fact, in some instances it's frequency has increased, mostly only occurring at the times I've come to expect, but I was watching a Hulu video just a few minutes ago and the number of times the screen flickered was nearly unbearable.
i have a Leonovo H520 current gpu is "Radeon 5750" i recently upgraded my psu to 600w which 450 is enough for the card. but everytime im in a game my screen goes black and my game crashes and i have that error it is really annoying [URL]
