Thread: Blank Screen at startup after installation

    Ausrufezeichen Blank Screen at startup after installation

    Hi there,

    I recently installed Daemontools 4.35.5 under windows 7 x64.
    The installation didn't completed as it gave me the error about windows 2000 and the kernel. Each time that I tried to reboot for the installation svchost would not let me restart and would crash(and then I could restart my computer). Suddenly, I started my computer and.... nothing. blank screen. Everything seems to be ok on the hardware ( I have an ASUS crosshair so there is a little screen that tells what is booting) but I can't see a thing, not even the BIOS! I though it could be STCP.sys related but I don't have a clue since I can't see anything on my display(which is dual-screen and I don't see anything on both of them).

    Here are my specs if it proves useful :

    ASUS crosshair motherboard
    6gb 800mhz OCZ memory
    AMD 6000+ processor
    eVGA Nvidia 8800GTX
    650watts power supply
    G-15 keyboard
    G-5 Mouse
    Logitech Z-5500 speakers

    Oh, my mouse seems to be O.K. though. I think I can go into windows but I don't see a thing... and the lights on my G15 seems alright also but the backlighting doesn't show up at startup.

    Thank you for taking time to look into this.

    Regarding your mouse only means it gets power, nothing more.

    You do hear a beep code?
    Elcos on mainboard are ok?

    Elcos are on mainboard mostly next to PCIe slot.

    You actually tried another monitor and/or Safe Mode?

    Well I can't go into safe mode and I did try more monitors... can't see a thing. Everything seems to be in working order

    If you don't see a thing, then how do you know you logged into Windows?

    I guess you know pressing F8 every time and again before you hear the sound, will open a menu to select Safe Mode or not.

    If you can't see that menu, something is wrong with your computer.

    The LED on your monitor, is it green, orange or nothing?

    The LED on my monitor is orange. In fact, my monitor is in sleep mode. I'll try again for the safe mode tonight. I guess the sound comes from the mobo?

    Normally only a single beep during startup comes from mainboard.

    If you disabled your speakers, then the sound comes from the mainboard or do you have built-in speakers into your pc case/monitor?
