hi guys sorry i’ve not been on for quite some time but i’ve had bad health problems . anyway the pc problem it’s running vista it starts ok in safe mode with networking but in normal mode we can get to signing on then the screen goes black and nothing else happens any ideas please ???
Also I would try this method posted first: (I tried this method years ago)
I know it has been over two years since this was posted, but I see one solution that was not posted. Try the following:
Type “msconfig” into the command box in safe mode. Your “System Configuration Utility” program should open on your screen. Click on the “General” tab on the utility program. Select the “Normal Startup” option. Click “Apply” and “Ok” to confirm the change back to normal mode. Follow the on-screen prompts to restart the computer. Your computer should reboot normally. Run the configuration utility again if the computer restarts in safe mode. Click on the “Boot” tab and ensure the “Safe boot” option is unchecked. Repeat your steps for the “General” tab described earlier and reboot.
Sounds like time to make a backup Brucie, before it “falls down the stairs” and has to be replaced.
Being an owner of dubious hardware I would also be trying another monitor just in case yours says Samsung on it anywhere, my now retired Samsung started playing all sorts of games with declaring the refresh rate being out of range and eventually just not powering up and staying on preferring the same Henry Ford approach “Any colour you want - as long as its Black”
hahaha funny enough as it happens it is a samsung monitor new one at that lol yeah would be nice to make some sort of gaming rig but the wife would use it more than me it’s hers thats going wonky not mine lol
