Dell 1545 - Blacks Out, Uniquely Boots Back to Log In

October 19, 2012 at 17:55:17
Specs: Windows 7, 3GB
I've recently restored a Dell 1545, installing Windows 7 onto it. The installation went smoothly, so did accessing the BIOS, but as soon as the Windows 7 install completed, the PC will randomly, after a few minutes, go to a black screen and when I hit power again, it asks me to log in (so it doesn't seem hardware related).

Seems this model has a lot of problems blacking out, but I've never seen one account like this. I press power after blackout about 2-3 times, and it boots me back to the User Log In screen, everything still downloading/running.

What's going on? Just replaced a bad hard drive in the device, all other hardware tests under PC-Check & memtest pass. Help?

Why is my screen black when I start Windows 7?

I will try that out later and let you know if it works.

Thanks, and hopefully it works out!
