Hi MITZ,this black screen issue is killing me. If I turn off the computer for a while (say overnight), the next morning I try to boot it up again,:Boot 1: there will be no display whatsoever, -> I press the restart buttonBoot 2: Display on monitor past windows 7 loading screen then stuck at a black screen without cursor or anything. -> I press the restart buttonBoot 3: Just have to select boot normally and everything goes fine.This trend is so consistent its crazy. Greatly appreciate your help.*I am booting on a usb-wireless keyboard with a new pci-e graphics card that wasnt giving me such a problem until one fine day. I am not sure if it could be due to the windows updates like i read somewhere. Thanks.June 10, 2011 at 2:04 am #33293
btw, I tried unistalling my graphics drivers (GTS 250) drivers on safemode and let it install automatically on the successful boot, or even install the latest graphics drivers from guru3d. Nothing works. Thanks.June 20, 2011 at 12:40 am #33294
What about trying system restore then? If it was working fine go back to that point and see what happens. Also I see you have Windows Seven..Did you let Windows seven install your drivers automatically for nay of your devices or did you put the right drivers that came with the device in.June 20, 2011 at 4:40 am #33295
Thanks for your reply, yes it makes sense. I tried system restore some time back, it didnt work.I lost the drivers that came with the device, so I let windows 7 install the drivers automatically. I also tried a couple of versions available for download on http://downloads.guru3d.com/Videocards---NVIDIA-GeForce--Vista-%7C-7_c32.htmlDidnt work too =(I also noticed this issue about the same time I realized that the DVI port for my old samsung monitor failed (couldnt even boot in safemode) afterwhich I have been using a vga - dvi cable to link to my graphics card instead. Now I purchased a new monitor and went back to DVI-DVI but the problem persists. Is there any way good to log the boot process to see which is the hardware/drivers giving me the boot freeze? thanks mitz!
