Question : Why Did Installing VLC Media Player Kill my Friends Laptop? My friend was installing VLC media Player on his laptop, which is a few years old. While installing, it froze and his screen looked really pixely and colorful, does anybody have any ideas what the problem could be?
Nothing will be shown on the screen, now the screen is just black when powered up
There are a number of options. Firstly you need to start your computer in “Safe Mode” and this will normally load only the minimal drivers on your computer. Once this is loaded you need to uninstall VLC and then reboot the computer in normal mode. Most times this will solve the problem. Many times there may be conflict with software and uninstalling the software is the first step.
If that does not work then you will need to “reset” the computer and you would need a technician for that as it needs to be done from the motherboard. They might just as well check your hardware and see if one of the components are too old and might need replacing.
