Win 8.1 - Stuck On Black Screen Forever

Apr 28, 2014

Black screen on windows 8.1 . Here's the situation:

- I have windows 8.1 for some weeks. every thing works fine
- today after going to sleep mode I can not start windows. it goes to a black screen after windows logo and restarts won't work.
- Tried the 'fixmbr' thing on command prompt from windows startup repair.
- Windows startup repair obviously finds nothing
- tried refreshing pc from startup repair but after a few minutes it said that it has failed refreshing
- Tried forcing windows to go to "safe mode" by using command prompt but the same thing

Any solution except formatting and reinstalling windows? My laptop is a custom CLEVO p150hm1.

PC Suddenly Takes Forever To Boot Up - A Black Screen Hangs?

Aug 2, 2013

Recently my pc has taken forever to boot up. A black screen hangs there for about 5-9 minutes before opening up in Windows 8.

I thought a virus was there so did a full scan using Kaspersky Internet Security 2013, nothing found.

I haven't d/l'd any new software recently.

I have tried to upload music to my micro SD card from my iphone, but the icon in My Computer is not showing, not in Device manager either.

Don't know if they are related but the problem started just after the above incident.

Windows 8 Stuck On Black Screen?

Apr 3, 2013

I was casually using my pc and it suddenly shutdown. I tried to restart it, but it's stuck on black screen. Here's the thing there was no windows logo or no bios or no nothing appeared on the screen. It just goes black even if I restart it a hundred times. I am sure the cables of the monitor are fine and I am also sure that there are signals coming from the pc.

P. S. I even ASSUMED that the pc must have switched on and typed password to login and waited enough to get it to sleep mode and then recover from there. But still no luck.

Windows 8 Stuck At Black Screen (with Mouse Cursor) After Deleting Linux Partition

Aug 15, 2014

I have a problem in my dual boot machine. I decided to remove Linux mint 17 from my dual boot with windows 8.
I used easeus partition manager to delete the partitions associated (root, home and swap). Then I got unallocated space just before my windows partition. So I moved my windows partition to the extreme left possible. Then I merged this unallocated space with my second storage partition.

These steps required reboot (specifically the moving of windows partition). When I rebooted my PC I got an error that grub was not found. I realized that I had forgot to fix MBR and load windows boot loader. So I used windows 7 recovery disk (yes windows 7 as I don't have windows8 recovery or installation disk). I got a windows 7 style boot loader instead of windows 8's graphical one which has advanced recovery options built in. But I proceeded. Then eases did its job with the partitions. After a reboot now I am stuck at a black screen after entering my password with a movable mose cursor. I can only press Ctrl+alt+del. Selecting task manager from it does nothing.

Since I don't have windows 8 disks and windows 8 boot loader I am not able to refresh or reset my PC. Neither can I shift restart my PC to get advanced boot options. One more thing to note, that while entering password, I noticed that the lock screen and account pictures have changed to defaults of a freshly installed windows.

Windows 8 Pro / Screen Goes Black And Back To Lock Screen

Nov 10, 2012

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. Everytime or almost everytime I click on an app or go to the desktop and try to get on IE 10 (desktop version), my screen flashes and goes black for a few seconds then returns me to the screen with the space needle, then I click on it and it signs me back in. When I try to use Google Chrome, the websites freeze up on me. I don't want to have to reinstall/reformat as I paid $40 for this for one, and secondly, I don't want to have to repurchase Office 2010 as my licenses ran out. I ran every update that comes up and restart, but this doesn't change this issue. . why it does this and any way to fix it without reformatting?

Getting Black Screen Right After BIOS Screen?

Jul 25, 2013

I have the Thinkpad X230t and normally run Windows 8 x64 with touch just fine. I installed the preview version of Windows 8.1 x64 today. The installation completed quite OK.

At the end of the installation, the installer tries to "set up my account" but then says that it cannot do it at this time, and that I can do it later. I said OK, then log on with my usual Microsoft username and password. Once I'm in the desktop, a message popped up saying Windows cannot find my profile in c:windowssystem32 ... a place like that. This message repeats when I tried to open Desktop, Downloads, or Documents.

I then tried to do a few things in Windows 8.1, but responses were super slow. I then restarted the computer but it froze in the blue restart screen. I then forced a manual restart.

Now I get a black screen right after Bios screen ("Press Enter to interrupt Normal startup"). No flashing cursor, just a plain black screen. None of the keys are responsive, except Ctrl-Alt-Del which will restart the computer, and the same thing happens.

Since I don't have a DVD drive, I cannot boost using the Windows DVD.

Computer Restarts And Stuck At Restart Screen

Jan 24, 2013

When my computer restarts, it seems to never end. I once waited 20 minutes for it to restart but it was still at the same screen. Now whenever it goes into restart, I just hold my power button until it shuts down. I don't think it's good for my laptop so I want to figure out a way to have a fast restart. I got this laptop 3 weeks ago and it always had this problem. My old laptop restarts in under 2 minutes.

Stuck With Only 4 Rows On Start Screen For 1920x1200

Feb 5, 2013

My problem is that no matter how hard I try I can't get more than 4 rows on my start page

I have installed Windows 8 on a PC with the following hardware:
nVidia graphics card and latest drivers.
A Dell 27" monitor running at 1920x1200
A secondary DVI to HDMI cable to a 54" Samsung TV (1920x1080) - used for Media Center

I have googled the web in vain and tried many solutions which involve changing registry keys or specifying the MonitorSize. I have also tried the Decor8 app but it limits me to 4 rows.

I have tried unplugging the TV and rebooted but this didn't work.

About the only interesting thing I can find is that if in my display settings I switch to 1080p I only get 3 rows, and if at 1200p I switch to portrait mode I then get more rows - but obviously this isn't particularly useful since my monitor can't pivot.

By comparison I have a VM at work running Windows 8 at 1920x1080 and it happily displays 6 rows - go figure.

Jul 31, 2013

I have a Toshiba laptop, it's less then a year old and came with Windows 8 pre-installed, so i don't have a disc. Last night i was watching a movie on it when it froze up, i had no choice but to force reboot as it was unresponsive but when it rebooted it when straight to diagnosing and attempting repairs! I left it over night to allow it to repair but it never made it past that screen.

Black Screen On Startup

Jan 20, 2014

I installed Windows 8 over the weekend. I didn't want to but my parents have it and they keep harassing me to "fix" their computer so that it acts like Windows Vista, so I needed to know more about Windows 8. When Windows 8 was installed I updated to 8.1 and installed Office 2010. Office asked for a reboot so I rebooted and haven't been able to get into Windows since.

The computer boots to a black screen that flickers once in a while. I can see my mouse pointer on the screen when I move the mouse. I'm having trouble accessing Safe Mode. I did get a diagnostic tool to come up before Windows booted and I ran a full diagnostics on my computer. When the diagnostics were completed it dumped me into the boot options menu. I tried to let Windows refresh itself which did not work. I also did a System Restore which did not work.

I have unplugged all usb and serial cables from the computer to make sure that it wasn't an external hard drive or printer causing my problem.

I downloaded Windows 8 so I don't have a CD to boot from. My computer doesn't have a CD drive. My plan is to keep trying to boot into Safe Mode but once I am back in I don't know what I am going to do. I already did a system restore. I could try to uninstall Office but it is more likely that the 8.1 update is my biggest problem. I'm sure that there is a way to undo the 8.1 update.

I was just wondering if there is any new information out there. It would be nice if Microsoft had a fix for this problem but I can't find it on their website.

Getting Black Screen With Taskbar?

Jan 23, 2014

Recently my laptop is giving me a problem. I was cleaning it up by uninstalling unused programs and deleting documents and files no longer needed. After doing all this and running CCleaner, I restarted by laptop. I noticed that it took an unusually long time to start up and log in. When it finally logged in, I was a at a blank purple screen... my Start screen. I was able to open the task manager and get to the desktop where my background is just black, but i have the taskbar. The taskbar only has the start button, which I cannot press, and the battery, internet, sound icons on the lower right.

I am unable to click any of these icons though. I cannot access the charms bar or anything Windows 8 Start menu related. No icons or programs are there for me to click, so the only way to access anything is by beginning a new task from the task manager. I tried to restore my laptop, but it did not fix the problem. So then I decided to do a factory reset (I saved all important files to a flash stick), but Windows 8 requires a media or installation disc, which I do not have because I downloaded the Windows 8 update. I do not think accidentally deleted any important files originally, because I was mainly just deleting from My Documents. How can I reset the laptop without the installation disc, or how can I obtain an installation disc without having to rebuy Windows 8?

Black Screen During Boot?

Dec 15, 2013

I run Windows 8.1 and I have a problem that surfaced recently. When booting it shows the blue windows logo, showing that it's booting obviously, but after a few seconds it goes to a completely black screen that lasts for anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes before it goes to the lock screen. My system specs are pretty humble I admit, you can look at my specs, but it was never an issue as Windows 8 and 8.1 used to boot completely within 30 seconds max. I suspect it might be a problem with disk space as I have only a 250 GB hard drive with 4 GB free space.

I used to have two hard drives; a 1 TB and a 500 GB. Due to too many power failures in this pathetic country called South Africa, both of my hard drives died completely from too many write and read errors and corrupted partitions. I salvaged the 250 GB hard drive from an old PC of my aunt's as I could not and can still not afford a new hard drive. Having to wait 5 - 10 minutes to use my computer is just plain frustrating to say the least. I have already cleaned all of the junk and useless files on the hard drive, what's left on it is all stuff I can't afford to lose or delete.
