Summary: Daily news about the deeds of proprietary software giants
There are growing complaints in the semiconductor industry that Apple, the “smart” phone maker extraordinaire and major chip buyer, is manipulating NAND flash memory prices through its “questionable” purchasing strategies, industry sources said Sunday.
According to the UK security firm Prevx, if after starting your Windows 7, Vista, XP, NT, W2K, W2K3 or W2K8 PC or server your system appears normal, but, after logging on, the screen goes totally black, except for possibly a single My Computer Explorer window, which might be minimized, chances are Prevx’s fix might help.
Prevx says its Windows Black Screen fix, which is an executable file, will change your Windows registry so that several of the many problems behind the Black Screen is fixed. The company makes no claims that their download will fix all the possible reasons you’re seeing a Black Screen, but, as they say, “Our advice is try our tool first. If it works, great. If it doesn’t you are no worse off.”
