Hello,

a Few weeks ago my cousin used a CD with windows 7 on my laptop (windows vista)
now I can't see anything on my screen, when I turn it on it shows me a blackscreen.
It worked for like 5min, after I started Internet Explorer it turned into black.
I restarted my laptop many times but I still see a black screen.
Anyone can help me solve this problem?

thanks.

At this point, I would attempt to plug to an external monitor, we may be facing a graphic card problem or a monitor problem.

No thanks to your friend for having severely damaged your system! With friends like this, you don't need enemies!

Questions:

1. Can you boot in safe mode?

2. Do you have command prompt?

3. Can you boot with F12

4. Can you boot on your Vista cd ?
I can't do anything, it just starts up with a black screen.
I can hear the sound to log in. :/

Greetings ChineseBoy

So you can hear the login sound! That new data for me. It could be hardware problem.

If after you boot and hear the sound, if you flash a light, let's say on the far right side of your screen, try to look from the opposite side at a sharp angle. Can you see a glimps of your desktop? (Move around a little, the light also)

Let me know
All I can hear is the login sound, but that's all.
I can't see anything on my screen ;x
I don't hear my login sound anymore o-0
Does it works if I use my backup disk?
Uh 1 problem, Don't I have to setup my laptop first to connect to a monitor?
-Display Settings- Screen 2?
I don't know any other way to connect to a monitor
I tried to use a tv and my pc monitor on my laptop,Nothing happens.
Then I tried it with the laptop of my dad, works =/

Hello friend

If it works on your dad's laptop we have a monitor problem which only a qualified technician can repair.

Do you see your desktop?
I can see the desktop of a working laptop,but not from my own one.
My monitor says ; No Signal.
I don't really want to take it to a store, it costs alot even for the stupiest thing.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) Remove the RAM from the slot, clean it and place it back properly or try another

slot.

2) Try once again by connecting your laptop to the external monitor.

Connect your laptop to the external monitor and then Switch ON your laptop.

If you failed to get the display in external monitor, then use the proper

combination keys(like Fn+F5/ the function key that's having the monitor symbol

on it) to toggle between your laptop screen and the external monitor.

Good Luck
