Black screen or standby screen at startup. If you have this problem, don't worry. It is surely nonsense and you have not noticed. It is likely that everything will work correctly but you simply have a wrong cable connected. Therefore, we are going to tell you what may be happening and what you can do.


What to do if the black screen or standby screen is on startup

If your PC seems to function normally ( HDD power on, noise, etc.), this is probably one of the following problems: cable that turns on the monitor and the central unit are poorly connected or damaged. Check the connections.

Su screen it is faulty or turned off. Try it on another pc. If the problem persists, consider replacing it with another one.

The PC beeps multiple times

If your PC makes noises, then we tell you that this is a hardware problem. You can search our website for entries that discuss this topic. Surely you find the source of these beeps and you can fix it.

The PC does not beep

This is a major hardware problem! The motherboard or processor (CPU) is broken. Test the processor on another motherboard to determine the problem (with an expert). However, in some rare cases, it may be that the PC is faulty, in which case you may notice disk activity.

The screen turns black when starting Windows

This is probably a problem of the Graphic card.

You better start in safe mode pressing the key touch F8 during startup (before the Windows logo appears). After loading Safe Mode, remove the graphics card driver and reinstall the latest driver (or previously used version).

It may be that the driver cannot be installed in safe mode. In this case, simply reboot the PC which will load a generic VGA driver. Therefore, the graphics card driver can be installed. If that doesn't work, consider uninstalling the newly installed items before the issue.

If the screen goes black while an application is running

If the screen goes black while an application is running, for example, a video game has to do the following checks.

First, check the minimum settings recommended by the game. Try closing the applications useless that work in the background.

Make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date and that the installed version of DirectX is at least the same as recommended by the game.

If possible, decrease the game display settings (resolution, number of colors).

Make sure, as a last resort, that there is no patch for the game to fix the problem (on the publisher's website).

Finally, the problem may be due to the use of a pirated version of the game; In this case, the best solution is to go to the nearest store and buy another game!
