Black screen of death

Post  aboh on Tue Dec 15, 2009 7:51 pm

One day you install a windows security update from ms and shut down your pc after the updates. The next time you turn on, you are welcome by black screen with just a mouse pointer and nothing else seems to work except for CTRL ALT DELETE to call up your task manager. Congrats this is known as black screen of death. If you have install a security update recently from ms.. some of the update screw up the registry files making windows unable to load your explorer.exe If you google black screen of death you may find many causes.. To torubleshoot yours try to recall if you did any installation of ms updates recently. If not it may lead to other causes wihich unlikey to involve any hardware issue. It happen at my work place and I have to do a system restore to roll back to the date before the update and it work fine. So far MS said not all pc are affected after the update and they are still investigating..

It affects windows 7, vista and xp. The blackscreen has only a mouse pointer and u can still log off or call up your task manager by CTRL ALT DEL.

If you have multiple user accounts on the pc, logging in to all the accounts will still reflect the same result, but for my case only one account is still working.

Deleting the affected account and creating a new one does not fix the issue Ive tried it.

Some reports say it is cause by a malware infection.

Like I mentioned it may cause by many reasons but unlikey involving any hardware issue especially if you have done some security update from ms

Those interested may want to read the following article. If it doesnt help, your case may be similiar to mine where I jst did a system restore.

For you I dunno lah, but for me, I move with the time, even I maybe "older" then you but in terms of technology and IT savvy-ness, I think I'm light years ahead of you Laughing no offense bro, knowledge is not age bound but it boils down to your mentality, interest and your thirst for it. So do not be in "that" mindset where you put age as a barrier or an excuse not to further improve oneself.
