Was doing homework when the screen suddenly turned black. I tried powering down and unplugging everything and waiting ten minutes thenreplugging and restarting again and still a black screen. Except this time I get a black screen with another screen displaying. Administrator: cm.exe. c:\windows\system32>

I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if it helps.

Method 1:

Boot to safe mode and then place the computer in clean boot state to determine which driver or program is causing this issue.


Step 2: How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7:

Note: Once you are done with the troubleshooting, try the steps provided in Step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual.



Method 2:

Perform System Restore to a point when the computer was working fine and check if the issue persists.
