Black screen on Windows® 7 using Apple® Boot Camp
Why does the black screen error occur on Windows 7 when Apple's Boot Camp software is used?
You will get the full performance out of your operating system by installing Windows 7 using Apple Boot Camp. The function of the Apple Boot Camp is to partition your hard drive and allow use of two operating systems. Thus you can use Mac OS X and Windows 7 on the same system. You can simply boot directly to the Windows instead of Mac OS X. Your system may face some problems after the installation of Windows 7 using Apple Boot Camp. You may get disk errors when you install Windows 7. The improper installation of CD or DVD may result in disk error. Sometimes, the system also becomes slow due to the installation activity done by Apple Boot Camp.
Following points may give an idea about the reason for the black screen error due to installation of Windows 7 using Apple Boot Camp:
- Unformatted hard drive
- Fragmented hard drive
- Faulty registry entries
Unformatted hard drive
The hard drive of your system may contain some errors due to viruses or unexpected power failure. This may result in the black screen error during the installation of Windows 7 OS using Apple Boot Camp. The upgrading and updating of the OS may also result in some corruption in the hard drive. The process of formatting may eliminate some of the viruses and unwanted programs that occupy more space. The formatting makes the hard drive eligible to be used on your system and storage space in the hard drive increases by this process.
Fragmented hard drive
The black screen after the installation of the Windows 7 using Apple Boot Camp may also occur due to a fragmented hard drive. The scattering of the files in the hard drive of the system may result in a slow PC and it also causes the black screen error. Thus you need to perform defragmentation of the hard drive with the help of a built-in tool of Windows 7. For the defragmentation of the hard drive you need to open the computer and then go to properties by performing a right-click on C drive. Then you need to select the option “Defragment now” from the 'Tools' tab and follow the step by step instruction.
Registries are the master control centre of your Windows 7 operating system. A faulty entry in the registry may result in the black screen error. The installation of an operating system or malicious programs may cause faulty registry entries. Thus it is better to use registry cleaner software on your system to solve the issue.
