    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    Ah - I don't believe that Windows natively supports burning of images. If you don't have Nero or something similar may I suggest CDBurnerXP? It's free and definitely supports burning ISO files.

    Make sure that in the bios boot order, CDROM is at the top of the list.

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    i have just recovered from a very simlilar problem, although i have ati graphics..

    mine paused on that mup thing for hours, tried boot cd's, swapping hard drives to a different copy of windows (still paused at mup.sys), unplugging power from wall, then i thought about it a bit and had a sudden memory flash, i had just installed catalyst which requires something to run on the next bootup, but i had done some defragging and such before restarting, so this might have knackered it a bit, my wierd thought was that something might be bouncing around in the ram ready for boot up and therefore stalling the computer. So i unplugged both ram sticks, swaped them round and voila worked next time, 50 restarts later, no probs...

    might not work on yours, but the simplest things work sometimes.

    and i know that unplugging the power would clear the ram, due to the nature of how ram works, but my computer is a little wierd and these things seem to help it along now and again, the mobo battery might power the ram who knows?.

    Ah, just responded to your PM...


    Essentially it's saying that your monitor isn't capable of displaying the feed that is being sent to it, or similar.

    Is your monitor using a D-SUB or DVI type connector?

    Hmm - is your video card a dual head card? If so can you try the other output?

    Did you change anything on your PC before this happened? I'm seriously starting to think that your graphics card may be throwing a wobbler (if you can't get a display even on a bootcd)

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    When you get to the Knoppix boot screen, there are a number of options you can enter - including setting the monitor specs. You will need to look at the options and monitor specs to set those. However the fact that you are aseeing something would indicate that your graphics card is working correctly.

    The aim of this exercise is to recover your data before you get down to fixing the Windows problem (which may well be a re-install). You may need to go back to the Knoppix web site to get full details of the options you need.

    Cheat Codes - Knoppix Documentation Wiki

    For example - at the boot prompt try entering

    knoppix screen=800x600

    which will give you low res (if that works try screen-1024x768) - remember we are only doing this to get your data backed up.

    welcome back peterb, ok i have a look at the Knoppix boot screen, the details for what ? what the resoutions should be set at ?

    ive got into menu and hit F3 to give me all the options

    one option is as follows

    Set XFREE resloution and colour depth

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    there should be a pause during the boot process where you normally just ppress return. Enter the commands I mentioned in the previous post to set the screen resolution.
