Black Screen, computer and screen on, but won't boot.

I was running out of space on my C drive so I did a disk cleanup with Glary Utilities and deleted files. Afterwards it was very fast, recovered about 32G of space. Then I tried to access microsoft word and some other apps and I got a message that the file may have been moved or deleted and to reboot. So I shutdown and now my monitor screen is black and it keeps going into sleep mode. The computer is running, but nothing is happening. I've checked connections, unplugged everything still nothing. Can anybody help?

It appears the you and Glary Utilities have removed some things that should not of been removed.

If you can get into the system, a restore point dated before you used Glary Utilities could save the day.
If not you could use one of your backups dated before you use Glary Utilities.

Hang in there. The should be other with suggestions.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Jack.

It appears I just had the monitor cord plugged in the wrong video slot. Once that was corrected and the display started it we were able to do a systems repair. All is good now. Back doing my thing!


BTW, I love you name and the photo.

Very strange because of this in your #1 post.

Glad your back to working again.
It would be a good time to make backup/Clone.
