I can only see a black screen after i changed my monitor's color settings.What should i do?
The BIOS must be loading after you change the color settings of your computer. BIOS means Basic Input/Output Operating System. It is a type of system software that runs your computer. If your monitor goes blank after changing settings, then there are two basic ways you can do so you can get back to its original settings.
1. start your computer in a safe mode by pressing F8. You’ll see a set of options as shown below:
2. connect your computer to a monitor with a higher resolution and change the displays settings back to its original settings. Right click the desktop, then cliick on PROPERTIES. At the SETTINGS tab, change the color settings back to its original settings and then click OK.
A lot of people experience this too, they try to change their display setting and then computer shows a black screen and here are some simple steps to fix this.
If your computer uses MAC OS 9, when starting up just hold the Shift key and all the Extentions will be turned off and this will help you avoid any display issues.
For Mac OS X users fortunately does not need to worry for this type of problem because the Display System Preference of MAC OS X only allows user to choose supported color settings and resolutions.
If you are a Windows user, try rebooting your machine on Safe Mode. In this mode, there are a limited number of colors options and this will allow you to see the display correctly. You can go to Safe Mode by pressing F8 key while the computer is booting up. From the boot options list, seleect Safe Mode. After successfully booting into Safe Mode and applying your desired color setting, you should be able to restart your computer like you ussually do.
I hope that these steps will help you resolve the problem that you are having.
Thank you for providing me solutions. The screen did not turn black again when I ran my computer in safe mode and changed the setting. If it weren't for techyv, I wouldn't have gotten your answers.
