After Windows boots up, the screen displays
Checking the performance of the video card drivers
The video card driver should work correctly
Check the status of the video card drivers that may conflict with the system.
To do this, you need to start the operating system again in safe mode by activating the video mode support item with a low screen resolution in its menu.
After logging in. go to the control panel.
To do this, right-click on the “Start” menu and select “Device Manager” from the list that appears.
Select the installed video card in the “Video adapters” section and go to its properties window.
On the “Driver” tab, click on the Remove button.
Then restart your computer and install the factory drivers that come with the video card on it.
You can go to the website of its manufacturer and download their latest version there.
If you do not know what drivers to look for, open the “Run” tab using the WinR key combination.
and click on the “Ok” button.
In this case, the DirectX Diagnostic Tools window will appear, in which the name of the available video card will be displayed.
Using the information received, it is quite simple to download the necessary ones.
System recovery with third-party programs
You can debug explorer.exe not only manually, but also using a small utility AVZ.
It must first be downloaded and installed on your computer.
The main window of this anti-virus utility contains several menu items, including the following:
Select the item “File”, and from the list that appears. “System Restore”.
After that, the settings window for the restore function will open, in which you need to activate the 8th and 16th lines (restore the Explorer settings and restore the Explorer launch key).
By checking the boxes opposite them, it remains to click on the Execute the marked operations button and wait for the end of the process. Upon completion, be sure to restart your computer.
A black screen is sometimes the result of a conflict between the mother’s drivers and the system.
Repeat the previously described steps to uninstall and install a workable program in their place.
To protect yourself from this, set a checkpoint to which, if necessary, you can roll back the system.
In the event that after replacing the drivers, the black screen periodically continues to remind of itself. continue to search for the cause.
Try to remove all programs that can cause a system conflict, as well as test your computer for various malware.
Start the system again in safe mode and open the control panel by right-clicking on the “Start” icon.
From the list, select “Programs and Features” and click on it.
Remove them using standard Windows features or a third-party program.
One of the best currently available is CCleaner.
The program is clear and efficient enough to remove all accumulated file junk.
All that is required of you is to check the boxes in the “Cleaning” section opposite the necessary items.
After the analysis carried out by the program, press the “Cleanup” button and wait for its completion.
Going to the “Service” tab, you are free to select the programs to be removed.
Select the one you need and click on the “Uninstall” button.
Boot Windows in Safe Mode
Initially, you should try to make a secure boot of the system.
Disconnect external devices from the computer, as well as flash media, which could also be the cause of the conflict.
Shut down your computer to terminate all processes causing the black screen.
Then restart it, at the very beginning of which be sure to press the F8 button on the keyboard (Delete, Shift F8. depending on the installed operating system).
In the Advanced Boot Options window, select the option you want.
In this case. Safe Mode.
If the computer starts up in this mode without any problems, then we can assume that the settings of the system itself have failed.
This additionally includes the appearance of an error after the next update in the OS registry, and incorrect operation of the drivers.
Here, activating the operating system is the first step towards fixing the problem.
Many people use an unlicensed copy of the operating system, the next update of which sometimes ends up with a black screen.
This occurs due to the impossibility of passing the “pirated copy” of identification on the Microsoft website.
If so, after booting in safe mode, you will see a warning on the screen about the use of an unofficial version, which should be licensed.
To get rid of the problem. activate your copy of the operating system.
Checking the hard drive for operability and the presence of bad sectors
Worst case when black screen appears is hard drive failure.
Initially, this reason can be answered if the cursor is visible on the display, as this means that the device is functioning.
If you see a completely dark screen, most likely this provoked the fact that the drive simply does not work and, as a result, is not displayed in the system.
A simple rollback of the operating system to a restore point will often help solve the black screen problem.
Although quite often users disable this feature, considering it almost useless.
But with its help, it is sometimes quite possible to avoid reinstalling Windows, returning to the moment of the most stable work.
It is quite possible to do this operation after loading the safe mode.
How to Repair Windows 10 Bootloader Using Command Prompt. Method 2
This method will use the command line invoked from the recovery disc, bootable USB flash drive, or from the Windows installation DVD. On the computer, you need to boot from the boot disk, and then run the command line.
The Windows 10 boot file creation process will take place in three steps:
- using the DiskPart utility, we find out the number of the hidden volume (disk, partition) and the file system, format the disk, and then give a letter to the volume (disk);
- creating files on a hidden volume (disk) to boot the system;
- deleting a letter from a disk (volume) of a hidden partition.
In the command line interpreter window, enter the commands in turn (do not forget to press “Enter” after entering the appropriate command):
A computer with GPT UEFI has a hidden partition with the FAT32 file system, it is not labeled with a letter, ranging in size from 99 to 300 MB. On computers with BIOS MBR there is a hidden volume with NTFS file system, up to 500 MB.
We need the volume number (“Volume 0”, “Volume 1”, “Volume 2”, etc.) and its file system. Pay attention to the letter of the volume (drive) where Windows is installed.
Select a hidden volume, it does not have a “Name” (drive letter). In this case, this is “Volume 4”, your computer may have a different volume number.
Enter the command to format the volume to the FAT32 or NTFS file system, depending on the UEFI or MBR hard drive partition style, respectively. On my computer, the hidden partition has the FAT32 file system, so I chose the option with formatting to this file system.
Next, assign the drive letter “Z” (the last letter of the English alphabet, which will probably be free):
Now you need to run the command to create Windows boot files:
In this command, “C” is the letter of the partition where Windows is installed, and “Z” is the letter of the hidden drive.
Once the boot files have been successfully created, run the Diskpart utility again:
List the volumes on the computer on the command line:
Select the hidden volume that you previously assigned the letter “Z” to:
In this command, “X” is the hidden volume number on your computer. You already selected it on the command line when you assigned a name for this volume (partition).
Enter the command to remove the volume name (drive letter) and then exit the Diskpart utility:
Remove DVD disc or bootable USB drive from your computer, bootable media is no longer needed.
In the “Select action” window, click on the “Turn off” button.
Turn on the PC, which will boot the Windows 10 operating system again.
Repair Windows 10 bootloader with automatic fixes
Using my example, we will try to restore the UEFI bootloader in Windows 10. The article is suitable for users with computers that have an MBR bootloader in Windows 10.
After downloading on the computer, in the first window of the Windows setup program, click on the “Next” button.
In the next window, click on “System Restore”.
In the “Select Action” window, click on “Troubleshooting”.
First, I recommend choosing the Startup Repair method. The Windows operating system will fix problems that prevent the system from booting on its own. This is the simplest solution to the problem, I myself have used it more than once.
The operating system will automatically diagnose the cause of the crash and restore the system files required to boot Windows.
In case of a positive outcome, Windows 10 will start in normal mode on the computer.
If Startup Repair failed to restore your computer, you will need to use the command line.
Repairing the Windows 10 boot loader using the system
Restoring the Windows 10 boot loader must be performed if the operating system cannot be loaded on the computer. After starting the PC, an error message appears on the screen, indicating that the system cannot be booted for one reason or another.
System bootloader problems can be caused by hardware and software issues. In this article, we will look at ways to restore the operating system bootloader that is not related to computer hardware problems, for example, a malfunctioning hard drive or RAM.
Some possible causes of Windows bootloader problems:
- unknown system failure;
- exposure to malicious software;
- wrong actions of the user;
- shutting down the computer during the installation of updates;
- installing another operating system on a computer;
- the result of the work of programs for cleaning and tweakers of the system.
To restore the Windows bootloader, if the automatic repair does not work, the command line, launched from the Windows 10 recovery disc, from the installation disc or from the Windows 10 bootable USB drive, will help. Therefore, I recommend all users to have bootable discs that will come in handy in case of problems on the computer.
Simple failures are eliminated directly in the running system, and in case of serious failures, the OS may not boot. Booting to a PC from a bootable media (USB flash drive or disk) will allow you to invoke system recovery tools to solve the problem.
Directly using the system, you can create a Windows 10 Recovery Disc on a USB flash drive or CD / DVD. To restore the system, you can use a bootable Windows USB flash drive or an installation DVD with the operating system.
The user can download Windows 10 for free from the official website, and then immediately create a bootable USB flash drive in the Media Creation Tool. There are a large number of third-party programs for creating bootable USB drives.
The most reliable way to recover your system in case of serious problems is to create a backup of Windows 10, for example, using system tools, and then restore the system from a backup. To create a system backup image, you can use third-party software: AOMEI Backupper, Acronis True Image WD (freeware), etc.
In this article, we will look at several ways to repair the Windows 10 bootloader, without using third-party software. The instruction is suitable for operating systems Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7.
To start booting from a bootable disk (flash drive or DVD), you must enter the BIOS or UEFI boot menu, and then select the boot device. Another startup option: choosing the priority of booting from bootable media in the BIOS settings. Different keyboard keys are responsible for entering the BIOS on computers, so first find out what to press, focusing on your device model.
Repairing the Windows bootloader via the command line. 1 way
After unsuccessful automatic recovery, in the “Startup Repair” window, click on the “Advanced options”.
Alternatively, you can reboot from the bootable media (USB flash drive or DVD), and then go to the “Advanced Options” window.
In the “Advanced Options” window, click on the “Command Prompt” button.
We will perform a Windows boot loader repair via the command line. The bootloader recovery process will take place in two stages:
- using the Diskpart utility, we find out the name of the system disk on which Windows is installed;
- then we will create operating system boot files.
In the command line interpreter window, enter the command to run the Diskpart utility (after entering each command, press the “Enter” key):
In the list of disks (volumes) on your computer, you need to find the system partition on which the Windows operating system is installed. We need to find out the “Name” (drive letter), when searching for a volume, be guided by the size of the disk with the installed system. The operating system can be installed drive “C”, “D”, “E”, etc.
In my case, the system is installed on drive “C”.
To exit the Diskpart utility, enter the command:
Now you need to enter the command to create the operating system boot files using the bcdboot utility.
In the Command Prompt window, enter the command:
In this command, “X” is the letter of the volume (drive) on which the system is installed, on my computer drive “C”, so I entered this drive letter.
After executing the command, you will see a message stating that the download files have been successfully created.
In the “Select Action” window, click on the “Continue” button to exit System Restore and continue using Windows 10.
Repairing the Windows 10 boot loader in Bootrec
Use the Bootrec.exe utility to troubleshoot system startup problems on computers with MBR (Master Boot Record).
- FixMbr. Windows compatible master boot partition (MBR) record, existing partition table is not overwritten.
- FixBoot. writing a new boot sector compatible with Windows to the system partition.
- ScanOS. search all disks of installed systems compatible with Windows, displaying entries that are not in the system configuration store.
- RebuildBcd. search all disks of installed systems compatible with Windows, select systems that need to be added to the configuration repository.
In most cases, it is sufficient to write a master boot partition or a new boot sector that is compatible with the current operating system.
After booting into Windows Recovery Environment. In the Command Prompt window, enter one of the commands:
If the problem is not solved by the suggested methods, you can fix the problem by using a “clean” installation of Windows 10, instead of the system installed on the computer.
Conclusions of the article
In case of problems loading the operating system, the user needs to restore the Windows 10 boot loader. To get the job done, you will need to boot to the computer from a bootable USB flash drive or from an installation DVD. Recovery is performed from the recovery environment automatically by means of the system, or manually by the user after entering the appropriate commands in the command line.
Let’s move from words to deeds
The first situation. The operating system boots successfully, but no further login occurs, instead a black screen appears. Only the mouse cursor moves on the screen, with which you can inconsolably search for shortcuts in order to click on them. The problem is related to the system file “explorer.exe”. which could not boot in the usual mode (or did not start at all). Perhaps the problem lies in the registry entries and does not affect the hardware (which is most preferable).
Situation two. At the stage of loading (starting) Windows 7, an error message appears. the inscription “NTLDR is missing” in white letters on a black screen. The case is also quite common. The reason for this is a corrupted Windows 7 bootloader. Repair. recover corrupted files.
I want to note right away that we do not need third-party software to solve problems, we will perform all manipulations using standard Windows tools.
If there is no image on the computer screen after starting Windows 7
Today’s article is devoted to solving a rather popular problem in which the usual start of a computer with the installed Windows 7 operating system is impossible. The disease is as follows:
the user presses the power button of the computer, after which the equipment begins to load the operating system. This process takes place without any problems and nothing happens: there is no usual screen for selecting users (if it was turned on and several people are registered in the system), the desktop that should have been loaded does not start, there are no inscriptions on the computer screen and hints indicating a solution to the problem. only a black screen.
Usually, when the Windows 7 system boots successfully, the message “Welcome” appears. but in this case, nothing happens. I agree that the situation looks terrible, but do not rush to call the wizard or reinstall Windows, because the solution to this problem is not as difficult as it seems at first glance.
Let’s analyze the first situation
- The Windows 7 operating system booted successfully, but there is no familiar user interface. On the screen there is only a moving mouse cursor on a black screen. Try pressing the key combination “CtlAltDel” or “CtrlShiftEsc” and launch the “Task Manager”. In the “Processes” tab, look for “explorer.exe”. If this process is present, try “End Process”. If this process is not in the list at all, then proceed to the next steps.
- Click the “File” menu in the task manager, then select the “New task (Run)” item or press the “WinR” key combination. Enter the word “explorer.exe” in the field and press “OK” or the “Enter” key. If after that the desktop and the lower Windows taskbar appeared, then there is a problem with starting this process. Apparently, something was messed up in the system registry and the process responsible for displaying the desktop (and other visual elements) could not be found by the system.
- Open the “Run” command (keys “WinR” or through the “Task Manager”) and enter the command “Regedit.exe”. click “OK”. Go to the “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” section. open the branch “SOFTWARE / Microsoft / WindowsNT / CurrenTVersion / Winlogon”. looking for “Shell” (shown in the screenshot). If this key is not in the registry or it is there, but its value does not correspond to “explorer.exe”. then we change the value to the required one (explorer.exe) or create a new registry key if it is missing.
Right-click on the “Winlogon” section. then select the item “Create”. in the opened sub-item of the menu, select “String parameter”. Enter the name “Shell”. We make a double click on the newly created “Shell” parameter (or press the right mouse button and select the “Change” item), enter the word “explorer.exe” in the “Value” field. Click “OK” and reboot the system. If the problem is resolved after restarting and Windows 7 started successfully, then everything was done correctly.
- Open the registry branch “HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrenTVersion \ Winlogon” and look for the “Shell” parameter. If not, great. But if this parameter exists, then we will have to delete it.
- It happens that after starting Windows 7 a black screen appears and the “Task Manager” does not open. In this case, we need to start the Windows system in safe mode (Safe mode) and do steps 1-3 again, but already in safe mode. Repeatedly press the “F8” key when turning on the computer to get into the OS boot menu. If there is no Safe Mode option, but only Additional Boot Options. then select it and select the “Safe Mode” item in the list that appears. Press the “Enter” key when turning on the computer to get to the OS boot menu.
- If, after starting in safe mode, the problem with the resulting blank (black) screen is not resolved, then we proceed with the step in safe mode with command line support. In the command line, enter “explorer.exe” and press Enter.
- You can try to load (run) the last working configuration of the system. Again, repeatedly press the “F8” key. select the section “Additional boot options” and the item “Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced)”. We are waiting for the completion of the boot process and, if the problem with the black screen is resolved, we continue to work with this configuration. Attention! When loading the last successful configuration, some installed applications and other data may be lost.
- Do not forget about the Windows recovery system, which solves most of the operating system problems that arise and does not require certain knowledge and training. During the boot process of the operating system, if a failure occurs and the boot is interrupted, Windows 7 displays a list of possible actions. Among the other options should be “System Restore”. select and press the “Enter” key.
The data in the system registry could not change on their own, unless an outside influence was made. This means that you need to analyze the system for the presence of malware (viruses and other infection created to annoy users) with an antivirus.
Rolling back video card drivers
Boot your computer in Safe Mode and go to Device Manager. Expand the item “Video adapters” and right-click on the device you are using, select “Properties”.
Go to the “Driver” tab and select “Roll back”, confirming your action.
Unplug the device and reactivate it.
Windows 10 black screen on startup: 15 ways to fix the problem
Windows users of different versions, from XP to 10, sometimes face a strange problem. Immediately after loading the operating system, the disappearance of its logo, or after logging into the account, a blank black screen appears instead of the desktop. There may be a mouse cursor on it, but nothing else happens. Why it can happen and how to fix it.
Black screen appears when booting Windows 10
There can be several reasons for a black screen instead of the Windows desktop. This happens if the wrong default monitor is selected, drivers or Windows updates are installed incorrectly, a poorly configured antivirus may prevent loading, the explorer.exe file may be damaged, or it may not autostart correctly. Conflicting programs can also cause the problem.
Depending on the symptoms, you can choose one or another solution.
If a black screen appears immediately when you turn on the computer and there is no BIOS or Windows splash screen on the screen, then the problem is not in the operating system. It is worth checking the startup of the computer itself and the performance of its main components.
If a black screen appears after the BIOS window, but before Windows boots (the underscore cursor may blink), then the problem lies in the system bootloader or in the disk drive.
If a menu with options appears on a black background, then you should try to select the normal boot of Windows or the last good configuration.
If a message with an error code appears on a black (blue) background, then you need to search the Internet for what exactly is causing this specific problem.
In this article, we will take a closer look at the situation when the system booted, but instead of the desktop, a blank black screen appeared without any inscriptions or icons. In this case, the cursor pointer may be present. Please note that in most such cases it is possible to access the system menu by loading it in Safe Mode or by calling the “Task Manager” and using it to enter certain commands.
Below we provide various solutions to solve the black screen problem in Windows.
The system periodically creates checkpoints, which allows you to return to its previous, stable state. In case of any problems, you can use this tool. System rollback can be started from Safe Mode or in Recovery Mode, which can be launched under Windows Settings → Update and Security → Recovery.
Checking the system for viruses
To check the system for viruses, you can use one-time utilities that are placed or installed on a flash drive. It can be Dr.Web, CureIt, or other applications. Boot either from a flash drive with installed software, or in safe mode to later run the utility from the media.
How to boot a Windows computer in Safe Mode
To solve problems in the work of Windows, including fixing the error with a black screen at startup, it is sometimes necessary to use the system boot in safe mode.
Booting Windows in Safe Mode means starting the system with a limited set of system files and drivers.
If the current problem no longer manifests itself when Windows boots in Safe Mode, then the default settings and the base set of drivers can be excluded from the list of possible causes. This helps to reduce the number of possible sources of the problem and helps in troubleshooting computer problems.
There are two versions of Safe Mode: Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Network Driver Loading. Safe Mode with Network Driver Download also loads network drivers and services required to access the Internet and other computers on the local network.
To boot Windows in Safe Mode:
Press the Win R keyboard shortcut (Win is the Windows logo key) to bring up the Run window.
Enter msconfig in the box and click OK.
Open the Boot tab and in the Boot Options section, check the box next to Safe Mode.
Note: There are several types of safe boot mode for Windows: minimal. starts safe mode, with a minimal set of drivers; another shell is safe mode with command line support; network. launch with Internet support.
Restart your computer to start Windows in Safe Mode.
To exit safe mode, just restart your computer.
Disable Fast Startup or Hibernation
The quick start function helps to save the system state during shutdown. In turn, this allows faster downloads. Sometimes the presence of such a regime causes certain problems. Try turning off fast startup (hibernation). These settings are made on the command line.
To disable hibernation, run the command:
and restart your computer. If the download goes well, then hibernation can be turned on again with the command:
If disabling the mode did not help, then you should try disabling Fast Startup. Windows 8 and early versions of Windows 10 allow this to be done in the power settings. But in the latest assemblies, shutdown is possible only through the registry. Here’s how to do it:
Run Command Prompt and enter the command:
reg add “HKLM \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Session Manager \ Power” / v HiberbootEnabled / t REG_DWORD / d 0 / f
This command will set the HiberbootEnabled parameter to zero in the fast system startup branch. Reboot your computer.
Step # 1.2: Reinstall video card drivers
Often a black screen is displayed in Windows versions XP, 7, 8 after booting up the computer and when, for some reason, the video card drivers are damaged or simply flew off. In this case, the only correct solution is to download and install them on your computer. You can download drivers from the manufacturers’ official website, and it’s completely free.
However, it should be borne in mind that to eliminate the black screen during Windows startup, you will need only those video card drivers that are completely suitable for your PC. Note that they differ by manufacturer (NVidia and AMD), OS type (32- or 64-bit), release (Mac, Linux, Windows) and version (for example, Windows XP, 8, Vista, 7).
If you do not know what drivers you need, but Windows XP, 7 still managed to load (for example, in safe mode), you can press R on the keyboard at the same time and set the dxdiag parameter for the Run utility:
After that, in the window that opens, select the “Screen” tab and read the information about the video card drivers. Using this data, we download the necessary updates, install and configure them on our PC. If the problem was in them, after a new boot of the OS, the black screen will no longer appear.
Step number 1.4: Restoring the system using the AVZ program
You can also configure the work of explorer.exe and, accordingly, get rid of the black screen, which appeared as a result of a system failure, when booting Windows 7 (XP, 8), you can also use the AVZ utility. If the browser does not open on its own and there is nowhere else to download it, we use this output: we call the R combination and the Run program, enter the iexplore.exe task for it and press Enter (OK):
You can also perform this task through the task manager, if it is running. In this case, press Shift, Esc and Ctrl simultaneously on the keyboard, select “File” in the window that appears, and in it the item “New task”. Next, in the Create Task utility, enter the iexplore.exe command and click OK:
After Internet Explorer opens, type in http://z-oleg.com/avz4.zip into the search box. and then download and install the AVZ utility on the PC. In it, open the “File” menu and select “System Restore”:
In the new window, mark item 8 and item 16 and click the “Run” button:
After the program completes the tasks assigned to it, we send the computer to restart. As a result, when you reboot Windows, no matter what version 7, XP, Vista or 8 it is, the black screen should no longer appear.
Step # 1: Start the system in safe mode
The very first thing to start with in the event of a black screen after booting Windows is to try starting it in Safe Mode. To do this, depending on the version of the OS, you can use different methods. The easiest way, of course, is to turn off the PC and use hotkeys (for example, F8, Del or Shift F8) when Windows starts up, and then select one of the options to load Safe Mode:
This method is perfect for XP and Windows 7, but for 8 you may need other methods (read about them). If, after booting, the computer starts normally in safe mode, it is most likely that the matter is in a system settings failure (registry, drivers, updates, etc.). In this case, you can solve the problem by reading the information described in step no. 1.1 1.7.
However, if none of the methods succeeded in starting Windows in safe mode, you can try to put the computer to sleep (step # 2) or use special boot disks.
Step # 1.1: Activating the operating system
In 50% of cases, the reason for the failure of Windows due to the unexpected appearance of a black screen when starting the computer is the use of an unlicensed copy of the operating system, or rather, its recent update. This happens because, having updated, the system did not pass authentication and, in fact, gave you headlong into the Windows developers.
It’s easy to verify this: just boot the OS in safe mode. If the problem is related to this, a black screen will be displayed on the desktop instead of the usual background image, and at the bottom a corresponding message about using a non-genuine version of Windows will be displayed. On XP it will look like this:
How to get rid of the problem? Activate your beloved Windows, no matter what. 7, XP or 8. How to do it? Purchase an activation key or, in extreme cases, crack it with a special program (for example, RemoveWAT21). The last option, however, will save you from the black screen for a short time: with the next system update, it is likely that the problem will reoccur. Well, maybe you’re lucky, who knows?
If a black screen appears after Windows boots precisely because of a failure in updating an unlicensed version, activating it, you can sleep peacefully.
Step # 1.3: Debug Using Registry Editor Tweaks
At the time of loading Windows 7 and XP, a black screen often appears in case of corruption of data in the registry by viruses. It is clear that the solution to such a problem must be sought in the restoration of its full-fledged work. How to do it? First, start the task manager with the Ctrl, Esc and Shift keys. After that, open the “Application” tab in it and click the “New task” button at the bottom of the window:
As a result, Windows will offer to create a new task. Enter regedit in the free field and click on the OK button:
As a result, the “Registry Editor” window will appear on the screen. You need to find the same branch and file in it:
After that, double-click on the Shell file, delete all entries in the window that opens, type in the explorer.exe parameter into the empty field and save the settings:
The final touch is PC reboot. If all the actions were performed correctly and the reason for the black screen after booting the computer with Windows 7 (XP) was the corruption of the registry data, as a result of their debugging the problem will be solved. If this does not happen, it is very likely that the cause of the problem was not correctly identified, and therefore a different solution is required.
Step # 1.5: Eliminate the conflict with the antivirus
A black screen at the very beginning of the Windows 7 / XP / 8 boot may also appear if the system conflicts with antivirus, primarily Avast. In this case, to cope with such rudeness of the antivirus program, which partially blocked the system files, you can delete the processes associated with the work of the antivirus in the task manager. Open it by simultaneously pressing Ctrl, Alt and Esc:
Note that this is a temporary solution. To finally get rid of the appearance of a black screen at the same time as loading Windows 7 (8, XP), open the antivirus and enter the exceptions for it from item 6. For the example of Avast, it will look like this:
- open the program and select the “Settings” tab in it;
- find and click on the item “Active protection”;
- click on the “File System Screen” tab;
- click “Settings”;
- on the left we find and open the “Exceptions” section:
- click the “Add” button and enter in the empty field one by one C: \ Windows \ explorer.exe. C: \ Windows \ ImmersiveControlPanel \ SystemSettings.exe:
- save the settings by clicking OK.
Then, to start the explorer.exe process, open the Task Manager and enter this task from the Application tab using the New Task button:
After restarting Windows XP / 8/7, black screen issues should be gone.
What to do if a black screen appears after loading OS Windows XP / 7/8?
I made myself some tea, turned on the computer, set up to work effectively, but it didn’t work: after a few seconds of loading Windows, a black screen appeared out of nowhere. Just like in a children’s horror story. But it’s hardly a laughing matter, something needs to be done with it, it’s not in vain that the tea has been brewing for so long! Well said. done, because the solution to the problem lies on the surface. Don’t believe me? Let’s check!
