I still can work on my laptop (HP Pavilion) because I had a window open and I can access all my docs this way, but the background screen is black, there is no 'Start' button, no desktop and the 'right click' does nothing. Totally emptiness, but I still see the pointer on the black screen. If this open window is closed, I won't be able to open anything or work on the computer. Anyone there with a solution?

Hey, I'm new to the forums but fairly experienced when it comes to computers. I've got a Dell Dimension 8400 and a 2001FP monitor. When i boot the computer up, the video card's fan is spinning and the computer seems to power on fine... except for the fact that there is no image on the monitor. The monitor itself acts as though it is connected to the computer while the computer is off. The light on the monitor normally remains yellow while the DVI cable is connected to the computer but the monitor is not powered on; because the yellow …

Hello guys, Recently I reinstalled my Windows XP SP3, now suddenly whenever I start my system it shows a black/blank screen after the Windows XP load screen. I installed the latest video drivers too (ATI Radeon) but it's of no help. I can go into safe mode without any issues and after that if I select restart the windows loads normally to my system and I can use my system, however if I wish to start my system after shutting it down and then starting it I face the blank screen problem. I searched for the issue in detail, am …

Can you tell me if you think Link Exchanges have any marketing or SEO benefit? Or does free Link Exchange risk being swatted by Google for Link manipulation? I've received a few invitations to exchange links with websites with higher rank than me, but have turned them down because it feels like link manipulation to me. Am I wrong? What is Google's view on this practice? When I go to these sites to check them out, they often have long lists of 'Websites We Like' (or similar title) in their sidebars. How can doing this possibly benefit anything or anyone? …

Another question here. I installed Ubuntu (12.04 I thing, the ones with the LT support?), was previously using Windows 7. Now when I boot, I get the option to use Windows 7 or Ubuntu, but when I select Ubuntu nothing happens - just a black screen. I then have to power off by holding down the power switch and select Win 7? Any ideas?

Hi, I have an HP Envy 4 Notebook PC with model 4-1080ee It was working fine last night but when I woke and turned it on this morning, suddenly it's showing a very dim screen. It's still working okay in the background and if I look closely, I can still see everything and I was still able to print the DxDiag. I already tried adjusting screen brightness and contrast but it doesn't work. I tried turning it off then on again, but it still gives me a dim screen. Can anyone help me on this please? Thank you so much …

(Yes, I have already checked other forums for this ...) Hi, I just got a new laptop a few weeks ago, and everything was working fine until now. I was going to login to my laptop (windows 8 inspiron) but it said 'new users can't log in because of low resources'. So there was this little back button and when I clicked it my laptop's screen turned black, none of the buttons work except for the Fn button, and the mouse shows up too. Other than that, none of the other buttons work not even the right click, Can anyone …

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

Hi Daniweb! I'm going nuts here, this is my first IT problem I as a softwaredeveloper hasn't been able to solve myself...

You can read it first and decide if you are unable to help, as you don't have to read the rest then and use time on my post that is potentially thrown away for you, as it became quite long.* **Synopsis:** My computer has started about a …

I have a Toshiba Sattelite Pro 660, when I switch it on I had a black screen with only the Toshiba on screen. I couldn't start the Recovery Mode it frooze too. After checking in on the Boot Menue to change to boot from CD it came up with this error: Operating System not found. I've tried a well established Boot disc, but even that freezes before the Repair tool comes on. Any ideas?

I have a Lacie Electron 22BlueIV monitor (CRT). Last night while I was watching a TV show on it, the screen went to black but the audio continued. I jiggled the mouse and pushed a few keys but the picture wouldn't come back. I shut the computer down and rebooted. The picture finally came back but for only a few minutes. This happened several times before I finally shut it down for the night. I did notice that the monitor was getting very hot, but I've had this device for a few years. Today it seems to be working fine, …

I'm having problems with a Toshiba Satellite A305-S. The AC converter that is 19v/3.95A doesn't even bring the charging light on. I have tried a Toshiba 19v/3.42A converter. It brings on the charging light, momentarily tries to bring the hard drive on and runs the fan. The monitor stays black the whole time. Is it possible that this second converter doesn't have enough juice to bring the monitor on? I'm trying to decide whether to buy a replacement converter and battery for this computer or that's a waste of money. I've checked the hard drive by pulling it and attaching …

Hello DaniWeb members, I know I'm not the only one who has tried to talk with non-hackers and used the term 'Crackers', to their total confusion. The problem is that the media has always refered to the Black Hat Hackers as just 'hackers', and that has given the **REAL** (White and maybe Grey Hat) Hackers a bad name. At the same time the term 'Cracker' has a slang meaning that many more people know about. So, this day I offer you a challenge! Let's see what all of our wit and creativity can come up with! What are your ideas …

Hi, I have recently been having a few issues with my Toshiba laptop. It is about 5yrs old and rund on Vista, and recently is won't turn on, and all I see is a black screen with a white cursor. I have tried running sc /scannow from the task manager, but this only brings up a box, which just flashes and then disappears. Internet explorer was also doing the same thing, flashing up and then disappearing, even from the task manager. The system error scan that it offers when restarting does nothing, and it ususally takes about four attempts to …

Hello! I am very new to Java and programming theory and desperately trying to improve my knowledge. This is the first program I've made without help and really would appreciate some feedback. I know there must be 1,000,000 better ways to do what I did. Notes: - I want to move away from public static void main(String[] args) { } programming. How could I achieve this program using methods and OOP? - I am aware that the Ace should not just be = 11 and give the user the chance to dictate it's value but implementing that would not of …

Hello. I received great help from this community a while back with a problem, and now I'm desperately in need of help again. I've done several google searches, and I've found my problem listed, but none of the solutions have worked. I hope this in the right forum, as I'm not sure what the problem is-hardware or software. Here's what's happening: I was online, and all of a sudden, my computer began the shutdown sequence to my great surprise. When I tried to start it up again, it would flash the "Dell" logo, give me the options of F2 and …
