How to Troubleshoot and Fix a Black Screen after Windows Boots Up

Quote:
Often, the video card or video card drivers are responsible for a blank screen after Windows boots.
Learn how to fix this common graphics problem and make Windows 7 boot up the way it should.
Video card problems are common in Windows causing any of several symptoms including blank or black screens at startup.
The steps in troubleshooting and fixing are quite simple and require only basic knowledge of computers.
Several components, hardware and software, work together to display the graphics on your computerís monitor.
The main components include the motherboard, operating system, video card drivers, and the video card itself.
Of course, the monitor is involved somewhere in there, too, but very few video problems are the fault of the monitor.
This is especially true when the monitor functions normally throughout the Windows startup process and only goes blank after the boot up is complete.
