Black Screen of Death, the dreaded computing experience, associated with the Windows version of operating system originates when there are some drastic changes in the registry settings and Access Control List. However, ready-to-use software patches are available on the Internet to fix computer black screen error in a quick and easy manner.
Did you ever imagine rivalry in terms of computer issues? If not, here is something to read. Blue-screen-of-death (BSOD) is no more the only issue that thwarted a user for long. A clone has evolved in the era of computing with the name “Black Screen of Death” that is sucking the computing blood; no matter whether you have done any change in hardware configuration or installed any new piece of software, it can come anytime with any Windows operating system. It was first noticed in December 2009, and flashed after updating the Windows 7 with a Microsoft security patch. Initially it was confined only with the then latest operating system but later it was discovered that the error did no prejudice with Windows XP and Windows Vista. The error garnered the attention of the millions; especially the players in the security domain came with their own theories and postulation. Prevx, a noted security solution provider of UK blamed the Microsoft update released in November that has caused severe changes in the registry settings. Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant with Sophos, says “Certainly PrevX’s original blog post does seem to have been unfortunate. The claim that the problem could affect “millions” of Windows users was clearly far wide of the mark. Indeed, when journalists rang me up asking about the [issue] all I could do is scratch my head and say that we hadn’t had any reports of difficulties from our customers.”
Possible breakthrough, which a layman can do to fix computer black-screen error, is to try with the Safe Mode and disable the display adapter. Remember to boot up normally and perform System Restore, first going back a few days and then as far as a month. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Graphics Card Driver can put you in comfortable situation. Reliable vendors have also launched their own Blue-screen fix module, which can be burn on a CD/DVD and executed on the infected machine. You can also launch the software patch directly, and introduce to your machine through the Windows Task Manager under the Application tab along with “New Task”. However, if the issue is an implication of any hardware malfunctioning then it won’t work, and for that you have to possibly look for any PC repair service that can provide on-site support for repair and maintenance.
Otherwise, go with online computer technical support and let technicians resolve it. They can repair the corrupted Windows and edit the registry settings to leave your machine in a working condition. Selection of the service provider is totally on your discretion; go through their services, and terms and condition before you ask for support.
However, the blank screen caused after Windows 7 logon, where the desk-top, task bar, system tray and sidebar get lost completely should not be confused with the other BSOD. The real problem comes from patches for Windows7, Vista, and XP that make changes to the Access Control List, which in turn affect applications and stop the OS from running. The ACL is a set of permissions for a logged-on user and the permissions interact with registry keys, creating visible desktop features such as a gadget. So don’t disable your Windows Update. It is literally important to keep your system software in a healthy condition to let you experience computing in an error-free and secure state.
