Black Screen Crash

Hi
I have recently upgraded to windows 7 on my netbook and since this I have been having problem with it randomly crashing the screen goes black and I can't do anything with it. Sometimes it restarts on its own and gives me an option to check out solutions but to no avail, I have also noticed that when windows is starting up, intially I have a black screen which eventually does rectify itself to the desktop... but its not right. Any ideas how I can put this right? I have minidump details if you need it...

Could you zip the minidump and upload it for debugging?

You might also want to upgrade your video driver

And run a system file check to verify and repair

to run type cmd in search>rightclick and run as admin>SFC /SCANNOW

let us know the results

You need to right click the file and go to the Properties > security tab and make sure the account youre using has full access to the file.

Are you logged in as administrator or another username?

As a suggestion, don't modify system directory permissions. Here's one way to attach minidumps:
