BSOD and then black screen every time i turn laptop on. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Please if someone could help me , this is my problem.
    I have recently plugged my laptop into a hdm cable through a tv monitor to watch a tv show , and right after that, when i restarted the laptop , i had a blue screen , saying something about graphic driver failure ...
    From that point , every time i turn on the laptop , i have a black screen , not showing absolutely anything. I can hear the laptop working , but i dont think its doing anything really. Since num lock isnt on , nor caps lock could be turned anyhow. 
    After like 100-150 turning on and off , i get 1 sucessfull normal screen where i could enter windows , and do whatever i want. 
    I am no longer getting any blue screens , but i am getting a blank monitor.  Its not black as in that its working and having a black color , its just not turned on.
    I tried reinstalling amd control center and all the drivers , but it didnt work.  I dont know how to reinstall windows cause if i restart it this time , it will take me 150 tries to enter the boot mode , and then another 150 to start the cd (last try wasnt sucessful , since my primary boot is dvd , and both windows cd's didnt work for some reason, it just turns on and nothing else)

    Today i have gotten this message when i got in

  • Hi,

    When you encounter a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) in Windows the computer will save information regarding the error message in a log file. This log file or minidump file is saved in the Minidump subdirectory under Windows (C:\Windows\MiniDump). Generally the information saved in this minidump file can help pinpoint the cause of the blue screen error message and help you in resolving the problem.

    Please upload this dump file to your OneDrive and post the download link here.

  • Here it is
    Also , id like to place an update on this. After like 1250 tries to turn on my computer where only 5 of them  have worked , it seems to be working fine now.
    The minidump i had has cleared away , and i cant get it anymore , but luckily had it transfered to desktop so i can share it with you guys again.

  • Another update... the issue is back .. now the laptop actually turns on , before was just a black screen with fans spinning. Now the actual numb lock turns on , and i can hear windows sound from the log on screen. 
    Still cant turn on the laptop with screen at once , and i have been trying for the last 40 mins :(

    Although your ATI Display driver is flagged as the culprit in this crash, there is a module, a78vk969.SYS that is loading, and try as may, I can't get ay hits when i do a Google, search. To me, that raises the malware "red flag" 
    I suggest that you download, update, and run a complete scan with  Malwarebytes, free version.If you get a hit, remove it, reboot and repeat the scan untill it runs clean.
    When you are done scanning, check the image path below to see if this driver is still present and if it is, Download autoruns and run it.Locate the driver, right click on it and disable it. See usage video below.
    Image path: \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\a78vk969.SYS
    When autoruns has finished scanning, click options at the top of the page....
    See more...
    How to use Autoruns.
    Download autoruns
    Also,Please uninstall sptd.sys
    sptd.sys: http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=sptd.sys 
    If you continue to crash, uninstall the current version of ATI Display driver and install a version that is a little bit older.(from you computer maker)

  • Hi , thanks for your reply , anyways
    I have ran malwarebytes after the crash , and it found nothing , i have also uninstalled video card drivers , and re installed them , and it didn't work then aswell.
    Now its impossible to try anything ,cause the monitor wont turn on no matter how hard i try.
    I had put this into the hands of a computer repair guy in my building...i guess ill keep you up with updates..
    thanks again

  • Hi Arsa92.

    Good thing you gave laptop to the repair guys. They might be able to find the cause for this strange behavior.

    I assume this is a hardware failure, and with turning it on and off constantly, you unfortunately might damaged a component like HDD (I hope that everything is fine tho).

  • I have thought the same , so i just gave up on trying ...
    I have heard memory stick might have to be replaced or something... ill tell him im even up for a fresh w7 reinstall , but i dont know how would he be able to do that since theres no picture :/
    Will keep u guys updated
    Saturday, January 3, 2015 12:08 PM
  • Well, if it would be a faulty RAM stick, then you would not have any issues with display.

    Not sure what could have happened, but since you told us that this problem started to show after you plugged hdmi cable into laptop.

    So in my opinion, it would be either a graphic card, display, or hdmi jack. But I could be wrong.

    Lets wait what the guys will say.

  • Please identify your Toshiba Model number using the information in this link:

    Please download and run Driver View and upload a copy of the report it produces to your OneDrive. To get a report on all drivers select Edit, Select All followed by File, Save Selected Items.

    Please provide a copy of your System Information file. Type System Information in the Search Box above the start Button and press the ENTER key (alternative is Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information). Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Do not place the cursor within the body of the report before exporting the file. The system creates a new System Information file each time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two for the file to be fully populated before exporting a copy. Please upload to your OneDrive, share with everyone and post a link here. Please say if the report has been obtained in safe mode. The request for a copy of this file is additional to answering the question about make and model.

    Hope this helps, Gerry

  • the repair guy i took the laptop to , told me that he isnt sure what the problem is , cause he tried replacing the ram sticks , and he said , and i quote 'it wont turn on, i don't know what to do'  
    He said that he might be able to fix it by replacing motherboard or something , that it might be burned out or something..but he also is not sure , and that it would be a long process. 
    I think ill send it to the official repair service i bought the laptop from , but i could do it in like 5 days , since its a 4 hour ride to there :/
    It still shows lights when turned on , num lock , and caps lock can be turned on aswell while its on. But screen blank(no power on it what so ever) :(

  • okay , went to official care center ...they are charging me 90 euros for repairing the main board (and they didnt tell me what was the exact problem) and thats it.
    Friday, January 16, 2015 4:18 PM
  • Arsa, if it is a display issue there is really nothing you can do outside of replacing the motherboard (considering it's a laptop and the video card is integrated) If you ever run into an issue with a laptop that you think reinstalling Windows would help, you can try to boot from the recovery drive.

    Most (if not all) laptops come with a hidden recovery partition. You can boot from this by pressing one of the F keys on bootup (for my laptop it's F4) This will boot straight into the recovery partition and give you the option to repair or completely reinstall Windows. Good luck with the motherboard repair.

  • quick update , my laptop was serviced , they 'fixed' the motherboard , and it worked for 3 more days before it failed to turn on the screen again , so now its useless as they say and cannot be fixed. I got 50 euros for the parts in a private service store for it. Laptop was worth 700 eurs.  2 years ...eh...
