Computer Help / Re: Blank Screen after Booting to SafeMode
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:29:08 AM »
Did my own tecking! I don't believe in coincidence, which is why I didn't try this for 24 hours - This old Lenovo was probably a server or maybe a graphics system before I acquired it; 2 cpu's, 12 GB RAM and 2 graphics cards, set up to operate up to 4 monitors. The coincidence occurred when I rebooted into safe mode; the graphics card my monitor was hooked up to chose that moment to fail. I switched the connector across to the other card and everything is now hunky dory! Who needs 4 monitors anyway?

PROBLEM SOLVED. Thanks for all the help, guys.

Computer Help / Blank Screen after Booting to SafeMode
« on: November 21, 2017, 05:52:16 AM »
Using Windows repair to fx a slow Windows 7 machine; Lenovo Thnkstation C20,  booted into Safe Mode as per instructions. The PC made all of the signs of rebootng but the screen has stayed blank ever since.

This means I don't know if the reboot has worked, where to click to go to the next phase, or how to get out of Safe Mode. There s NOTHING on screen.

What do I do to recover from this?

(Sorry about mssing "I"s in post, using old laptop with sticky key)

Thanks - this works with Windows 10 (and probably 8) as well. You need to press Shift as you click Shutdown in order to access the Advanced menu.


Whatever happened to Windows 9 ???
