Preferred Solution: Black screen w/cursor after Windows load screen - Nothing fixes it

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello saturnn and welcome to Seven Forums.

One of the Forum experts prepared this troubleshooting guide for Windows 7 failure to boot issues. Even though you've tried several of the suggested fixes I'd still go through the tutorial and try the steps in the order listed.

I have a HP a6683w running Windows Vista. When you turn the computer on it comes up with the HP screen but then goes to a black screen with a cursor blinking in the upper left corner. You can select F10 setup and get it to come up and also the ESC key works but the F11 (system recovery) will not do anything as well as F8 (safe mode) also will not do anything. Any ideas for a fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Windows won't load -- black screen with cursor

The C drive may be corrupted or going bad. Try running CHKDSK by going to Computer and right-click on the C drive. Select Properties, tools, check now. Put a check in both boxes to set a disk check on the next start up. Any errors mean trouble

Without prompting, black screen on boot-up appeared today, windows 7 system fix does not fix problem.
 
Apparently I had no restore points saved, or if I did, they are now gone.  I frankly don't remember if I had any.
 
I came across a topic here handled by Marius, which showed how to run FRST64 (I run windows 7 64 bit professional).
 
When I ran it, no fixlist was generated.  the text file for the run results showed everything whitelisted so far as I could tell, with no system restore points.
 
Any suggestions?  Will post text file from frst64, if thought helpful. 
 
Mod Edit:  Deleted FRST data, nof allowed/used in this forum, see No DDS, HijackThis, or ComboFix logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum-167/announcement-45-no-dds-hijackthis-or-combofix-logs-should-be-posted-in-this-forum/ - Hamluis.

A:black death screen, ineffectual arrow cursor, frst64 finds no fixes

This is the topic I had been following, with Marius.
 
Frankly, prior to finding this thread, I thought I might simply have video hardware issue, as I've been using the motherboard video architecture since I built the computer, and have never added a new card.

A:Black screen blinking cursor immediately on boot, no load screen...

sounds like you need the PCIe power connector to run your video card. Try removing the card and enabling the onboard video until you get a new PSU or adadpter.

Hello,

I bought a new computer in September, Dell N5050. The first problem occurred in November, I made prntScr: http://i49.tinypic.com/2gsjp5y.png
This problem is solved: I thought it's a virus, I downloaded Advanced SystemCare (I had McAfee) this scanned my computer and found a four Trojan.

Then came a new problem.
I turn on computer, starting windows, black screen with a cursor about 8-9 minutes, log on and welcome screen loading about 5 seconds.
OR
I turn on computer, starting windows, black screen with a cursor about 1-2 minutes, log on and welcome screen loading about 6-7 minutes.

I really don't know, what it depends on.
What is problem? How I can fix it?

PS: my native language isn't English. Sorry for mistakes.
PS: I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Thanks,
theHappie.

A:Welcome screen load time or black screen with a cursor

First thing I'd do is getting rid of Advanced System Care. It's a system optimizer, and Windows 7 does not like optimizers. I'd bet that it is responsible of the slow start.

Second, ASC isn't an antivirus, or if it is I never heard of it. Which isn't a good sign. Install a good antivirus and run a full scan, I like Avira (my favourite, which is free and nuked all evil things I threw at it), but other people like Microsoft Security Essentials (again free, but less powerful than Avira).

Hello, I recently started getting a black screen when trying to turn on my laptop, a Sony Vaio running Windows 10. I am unable to download the DM log collector tool since I cannot use my computer at all. It stays on the black screen even if I let it sit for hours. It's possible that I backed up a Windows 10 file when originally upgrading from WIN7 but I'm not sure and if so, it would be on an external hard drive. What can I do? Please help. Thank you so much.

A:Laptop wont load past windows page, stuck with black screen and cursor

Since AVG 'cleaned' a virus - all bets r off as the problem could be a leftover from the virus. apparently, a (some) system files r damaged. Going forward, u might not want to run normally as an admin user. That helps keep malware from invisibly installing if the AV does not catch it. 1. have u tried booting to safe mode? If u can get there try this clk Start - type CMD -- rt clk cmd.exe and select Run as Admin when the dos window opens type 'sfc /scannow' let it run retry boot when done. 2. If u can't get there or that doesn't work put ur windows CD in and boot to that. Run the repair install - or it might be called upgrade. Just do NOT do a CLEAN install. That will not erase any of your data. 3. If that does not work If u get a Hiren's boot disk, or something similar. U can boot to that and most likely copy ur data from the drive prior to doing a clean install. This assumes the drive isn't corrupt which appears to be true since it gets to the Windows screen. 4. If not u will have to remove the drive and connect it to another computer as an external HDD to copy the data. 5. If none of the above works - u have come to the complete understanding of the word BACKUP................ good luck

HP G62-455DX Notebook

My daughter have a laptop that she was trying to connect her son Leapfrog to it. She it connected overnight. The next day the laptop wouldn't load up but just shows a black screen with blinking cursor. Someone told her that it might be a virus. When I turn laptop on I can hit the [ESC] and it will take me to the black screen "Startup Menu." It won't let me do anything else but go to the black screen with the cursor. I tried to reformat the laptop but can't seem to get pass the black screen.
 

A:Can't get laptop to load (black screen with cursor)

Hello sir,
Could you give us some more details such as the OS, the exact process/incident after which the problem arose, and all the activities on the laptop since the Leapfrog connection?

For one, it could be plain hardware failure.
Assuming you have Windows 7 installed, have you tried performing a Startup Repair using the Windows 7 disk?
Once you power on the laptop, keep pressing 'F8' till you reach the "Advanced Boot Menu". Select Safe Mode, and see if you can boot into Windows. If you can get to the desktop, perform a malware scan.

If it doesn't help, contact your vendor's or HP's customer support/technical assistance.

Hope this helps.
Regards, Marnomancer.

So, basically the problem with my computer is that when i start windows normally it gives me a black screen with cursor. I searched in this forum and other forums for help but nothing helped. i tried loading in safe mode but it hangs in classpnp.sys, tried restoring, tried recovery options still doesn't work. Also, tried re-installing windows, but when pressing install it would give message on the screen "Setup is starting..." and it just loads, and nothing happens, i gave it an hour or two before i gave up. I am sure the CD is fine because it worked on the same pc before. It is windows ultimate 32 and 64 bit and computer supports both.
I have a Dell computer and it is not old, I bought it like 6months ago. If anyone could help, i would really appreciate it. Thanks

A:Black screen with movable cursor or KSOD (Black Screen Of Death) Vista

I think I saw this post aver at Toms but I also think you gave some additional info.
I think what may be going on it during the switch from the windows low res video driver to the driver used in normal mode.

Since you can get into safe mode try to go to device manager.
Start|right click computer|properties|device manager.
Look in the display adapter.
Is there a yellow exclamation mark there?
Or is it showing the video that you know should be there?
Please post the video that the machine uses and or the PB model.

Hello,

I have been having this problem since a week or so. Broni has helped me in malware forum to rule out malware as responsible. My machine is clean and I was refered here for further help.

Here is my problem:

At boot-time, I see windows XP load screen with the progress bar, the progress bar advances to the end and then, the screen turns pitch black and all is see is an arrow cursor I can move around. I thought until yesterday that this was a permanent freeze-up, but if I wait, say, 6 minutes, the black screen disappears and windows then starts normally.

Last week, problem was intermittent, it now happens all the time.

Windows boot-up was fine before.

Please help me.
 

A:Windows load screen at boot, looong black screen, then normal startup

I had this tons of times with my old XP PC. It is normal if you have a lot of files on the HDD and you have little RAM. How much RAM do you have? What is the capacity of the HDD? And do you have the Windows XP disc? Would you be willing to upgrade the RAM and/or the OS if we must resort to that? Or would you rather just buy a new PC?

Doesn`t sound too good mate.

The only thing I can suggest, is to try another video card. If that works ok, then you know your video card has failed.

I have new idea about this black screen error.
I remember that before I reboot my PC i'm going to Uninstall the software i don't need , Call "drivethelife 2012" which is using for update PC drive. But i think it was useless so I decided to Uninstall it. But it cant be uninstall and said it was using. So i want to open Task Manger to Close the "drivethelife 2012" but its not working.
The crash is starting with this moment.
Maybe this "drivethelife 2012" has the VIRUS to take down my computer?
I have go to "System Recovery Options " and used " System Image Recovery" to enter my files.
I Deleted "drivethelife 2012" from my documents and reboot . But it still going Black Screen.
The "Bit" also didn't find any VIRUS.

What happens if you launch "explorer.exe" (without the quotes) from Task Manager?
 
Please post over in the Am I Infected forum:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Follow their instructions before you follow mine.
 
If they can't help, then I'd suggest trying the various repair options available in 8.1:
- DISM/SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
- Startup/Automatic Repair
- System Restore (to a point before the problem started happening)
- Refresh the system
- Reset the system (you will lose all your data if you use this option)
 
Here's the instructions for DISM/SFC.EXE - they are run from the Command Prompt (run cmd.exe (elevated) from Task Manager)

 
Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealthDism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealthDism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.
From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx
You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.

Hey there, I'm not sure what's quite happening because I never experienced this problem. But, I would suggest repairing your computer to a earlier point of time, or completely renewing it by using the "System Repair" tool. How long have you had your computer, and was it used before you, or mom, etc. Brought it?

if you have run the sfc scan several times and it does not find any violations have you run a virus/mailware scan? check for updates for your drivers graphics card etc. also a bios update check. also could you fill your specs out please so the forum readers can assist you better

Hi,
 
I recently was directed to a site that I am pretty sure contained a virus, as after I restarted my computer, what normally would be my desktop is now a black screen with a cursor.
 
I have looked up what I am normally supposed to do when this problem occurs, so I installed FRST (64-bit), and ran a scan, the results of which I attached below. This was run in safe-mode with networking.

A:HELP ME! Windows 10 black screen no cursor

I am also a newcomer and had a similar problem when I went from Win 8 to 8.1. Banging away at the keyboard on created more problems [long story]. The problem was with graphics drivers.

I later upgraded the motherboard for other reasons. Next time it happened was again during an update, another BSD. More out of curiosity than anything else, I switched my TV over to input HDMI 2 which is the Desktop input. There was Mr. Microsoft happily upgrading, yet my LCD monitor was still black. I left it alone.

Yep sometime in the next hour my monitor was restored [I had left the room].

It has happened twice since, always with major Windows 10 updates. I don't think we call them updates anymore, they're re-installs. For some reason, the monitor drivers are axed, then a BSD until the new drivers are re-installed.

Of course that might not be your case, but it is one possible explanation.

Hi,

I recently got the malicious Antimalware Doctor virus, and after trying to delete it, my laptop is now stuck in an endless loop and is stuck on the screen just before login, with a black screen and a cursor.

This may have been said before, but my laptop is a HP 530 and my laptop DID NOT come with a recovery disc, therefore I have no backup.

I was wondering if this is possible to fix without a backup disc. NOTE: The files on my laptop are not important, therefore I don't care if my data is erased.

Try tapping F11 while booting up, there should be a recovery option there.

Hi guys, I pretty much can't solve this issue so am seeking for some help :D
So basically after the windows logo it just goes on a black screen with my cursor.
I tried some various solutions on the web:
 
1. **ctrl+alt+del** is not working
2. **ctrl+shift+esc** is not working
3. **Sticky keys [shift x5]** does not show the ease of use link
4. **ctrl+u** only shows 6 check boxes
5. Used Windows Recovery disk and tried repair as well as command prompt [FRST] to get log and replace services.exe
6. Used [Anvi Rescue disk] to scan and repair
 
But so far none of these have worked.
Here is the log I received from FRST.
 
Hoping you guys can enlighten me.

Windows appears to load normally until reaching the logon screen at which point 2 quick cmd windows flash on the screen and i'm left with a cursor and a plain blue screen.

No access to task manager through ctrl+alt+del.

I was thinking it's a video card problem until i plugged in an external monitor and saw a windows error box pop up saying that the program running requires that you not be on battery power.

Pulled the drive and scanned with avast and malwarebytes which found nothing.

Inserted Vista DVD but the repair function is only able to find the HP Restore partition and is unable to locate any backups.

The system runs "mini XP" from Hirens Boot without a problem, but no diagnostics that i ran have been able to find any issues...

Ideas?

A:Black screen with flashing cursor in upper left corner of screen

Hey I just went through something very similar. I found that my SATA cable connecting the hard drive to the motherboard had failed. I replaced it with a new SATA cable, and it booted right up. Try the cable first if you have one lying around, plus its a cheap solution. If you replace the cable and it still won't boot up, it might be your hard drive. Seeing as how your machine is that old, it could fail at any time.

Do you get anything on the screen when you turn it on?

I never had a problem upgrading like you've experienced but I experiencing Windows 10 upgrading process is the longest time taken ever compared to previous versions. It took me 1 hour+ to finished.

Play around a little bit to get used to it then did a clean install. No problem arise, seems working fine.

The point is, problems always happen after upgrading, to solve it just perform installation from scratch (clean install).

SAMLIB.dll is a security account manager dynamic linked lib. A repair install from the dvd should fix the problem unless you are infected with malware, or have a modified system

You haven't opened the case in over six months? Don't know if it will help or not, but you might need to clean some dust of there. Its not had to get a ton of dust inside the case, which can clog a fan or cover the heat sink, causing over heating. Heat + electronics = bad.

Do you have another user account you can try logging in with?

If you don't log in as administrator normally, at the log in screen type administrator and your admin password. If you have the login screen that shows icons, press cntrl+alt+del twice and the standard log in window will appear.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate
Yesterday my iolo System Mechanic software said it had quarantined a file, a I ran a scan using it's SystemShield and it found nothing. I ended up turning off my system and now no boot. I'm sure this is virus/malware related, I'm just too much of an ameture to get it fixed alone.
I have tired booting in safe mode and I get the same result, black screen, and a moblie cursor. I do have my Windows 7 disk, so I could get to a command promt I just don't know what commands are needed to be typed.
Any help is awesome. Thank you.

Hi, I have a desktop computer with windows 7 (Inspiron 545).

When I turn it on the logo of windows loading appears normally but after it I only get a black desktop with a big white cursor (low resolution?) but there is nothing else there, no icons, no task bar, etc. just emptiness. I wish I could give out more details but there is nothing more I can do. I tried with F8 to load recovery and do a factory re-install but the option is not there, even though I know the hard drive has a partition for it, the only thing that it's there is check for errors (or fix errors) but that didn't help. I would do a full format and re-install the operative system but I don't have the original dvd.

Thanks!

Okay so I recently started up my computer and for some odd reason after the "welcome" screen I get the mouse cursor but no desktop. Even after waiting around for a few minutes, nothing came up. So I shut it down and started it in safe mode and it booted fine. Anybody know whats going on inside there? I really don't have the money to have a pro look at it even though that's the last line for me. Any help on this is GREATLY appreciated

A:Windows 7 gets a black screen with cursor, no desktop

Can you install and run a full scan with Malwarebytes, in Safe Mode if necesary?

If so and it cleans up infection but Win7 still won't start, try SFC /SCANNOW Command or if necessary from the Win7 disk or Repair CD use SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail then everything else that can be done is in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

Hey guys!
So like a lot of you, I wanted to upgrade my laptop to Windows 10. But when the laptop was in the middle of installing Windows 10 and had restarted a few times, as it does during the installation, it suddenly went black screen with NO cursor or anything. It has been like this for 2 days now, and I don't know what to do.
I can clearly see that the laptop is still on and "working", so it has not just shut down.
I'm afraid to force the laptop to turn off, because it's in the middle of a system upgrade. So I'm wondering if there are any alternative solutions or is my only option to force the laptop to shut down and then restart it and hope for the best?

Hi, Use the enclosed link and at that page, read the information about how to get this screen to come up on your computer....
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/a/open-advanced-startup-options-windows-8.htm

Then, first try Using Last Known Good Configuration

You may first have to take the computer out of safe mode by undoing the msconfig work- I think you know how but here is some reference information on UN-doing the safe mode boot

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/termss/p/safe-mode.htm

Let us know if setting the Last Known Good works for you to boot normally.

Usually, a couple of restarts will get you going.... to Normal Mode

A:OS Will not Boot -- Black Screen with Cursor Windows 7

  
Quote: Originally Posted by DomMartinelli

Eventually my battery became ruined due to this, but I bought a new one. However, my computer kept shutting off due to the lack of power. So it would completely shut off. This may have done some hard drive damage I suspect, since I cannot boot into OS anymore. I have tried another HDD and it seemed to work.

I'm trying to resolve the problem with my hard drive though. I plugged it into my other computer via usb and it seems fine. I am able to grab any files I need from it. NOW as for my laptop, the PC turns on like normal. I get the bios screen. I get the Windows logo screen. Then I get a black screen with a mouse cursor in the middle.
I can move the mouse, but the buttons don't do anything--left or right click. No keys on the keyboard change the screen. Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing. Windows key does nothing. Esc does nothing, etc. At this point the only option is to hold down the power button and turn it off.
What I've tried:
I tried to start it in safe mode, but the same thing happens. It shows the system files that are loading. The last file it shows loading is Windows/system32/DRIVERS/amdkmpfd.sys then it goes to a black screen with a mouse cursor again; only this time it is in safe mode resolution so the mouse cursor is larger and not as sharp. Also, no keyboard strokes have any affect just as with normal mode.
It is a Dell Inspiron, so it came with an onboard repair utility. I used the Startup Repair tool, but it found no problems. The diagnostics tools found no issues with the hard drive or any of the other major system components.

It passes all other tests the onboard diagnostic utility has including, memory tests, fan tests, hard drive tests, etc.
I have not, however, tried a full system restore yet. From what I've read in several forums, many have tried this in similar situations and still had the same problem. Since there are several files I'd rather not lose, I wanted to explore all other avenues.

Sorry if this is a repeat question in the forum. Most of the other situations seemed similar, but there was always something they could do that I could not, like press Ctrl+Alt+Del or boot into safe mode or whatever.
Here is as much of the system info that I can gather without having the PC on (not mine, I'm doing this for a friend):
-Dell Inspiron ( 7520)
-OS: Windows 7 Home


I hope I've been thorough enough to allow you to help me without wasting any of your time, and I thank you in advance


Hi DomMartinelli,

Welcome to Seven forums.

First of all run a diagnostic on the harddrive to ensure that it is not gone corrupt. Check this video for performing the same:

http://dell.to/18xQpRy

And, check this tutorial which outlines all the possible steps for recovering your operating system and avoiding data loss until and unless necessary:

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

If you have made a system backup image using dell datasafe then you can put the system to factory settings as a last resort:

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

My windows starts in a black screen with cursor after the logo shows.

Then I've tried System Restore in safe mode but it says that you need to run CHKDSK.

But when I run CHKDSK when reboot it says " CHKDSK cannot due to recently installed software".
If I run CHKDSK in CMD with this command "chkdsk /f /r", it says "CHKDSK cannot run because the volume is in use by another process". and I've tried "chkdsk /x" but still can't run.
I've also tried running CHKDSK in "My Computer->Local Disk (C->Properties->Tools->Error-checking" but its says "file system corrupted".

I've also tried to repair using Windows Installer Disc, But can't find "Repair" in Boot Menu.


Please Help. Thanks!

Note: My Windows still works in Safe Mode and with Networking.

With two large graphics cards, the size of the power supply is very important....what is the model number?

What configuration are you running the dual monitors in. Are they both running from one video card, and which ports?

I installed windows 10 on my HP laptop and it seemed to work okay for a few hours with a few shortcuts on the main screen missing. After I closed the lid, it went into sleep mode and has never recovered. I can power down by holding the power button, but
when I power up again, all I get is a black screen, with no mouse pointer. How can I get to safe mode, or get any screen function back so I can get rid of Windows 10 forever?

I've searched all over for solutions to this. Upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro from 8 through the Windows Store. Everything seemed to go smoothly. Updated graphics card drivers prior to install of 8.1. Now whenever I start up, I can log in, but then it goes to a black screen with a cursor. Ctrl-Alt-Del will bring up the task manager and from there I can access programs and get on the internet. So after maybe 5 minutes or so after opening a program (usually firefox) the Metro screen randomly loads. None of the store apps worked, though I was able to find a fix for that. Some of them still don't work right though. Am I better off just reinstalling 8 and waiting for them to fix it? Or is there a better way to upgrade from 8 other than through the store?

A:Black screen and cursor after login. Windows 8.1

I have the same Video card as yours. You might want to re-install the Video driver from NVIDIA website but use the Custom Install instead. On the next screen. put a check mark on "Perform Clean Install".

In addition, make sure you have the latest BIOS installed from your MB manufacturer.

Good luck !!!

My mom was on it playing a game on the internet and stepped away to wash dishes when she came back it was on the black screen with the blinking cursor in the top left corner. I tried system repair disc, the recovery disc that it had me make when I first got the laptop and windows defeender offline nothing worked. I tried F8 and it goes to the black screen with acer and where I can press F2 or F12 and then back to screen with blinking cursor. I tried restoring default settings in the F2 menu also.

I was wondering if there was something someone knew that maybe I overlooked any help will be really appreciated thanks..

Unplug all USB devices from your laptop. Restart and see whether the blank screen problem remains.

It is possible that Windows refuses to boot with a USB device such as an external hard drive or a flash drive connected to your computer.

It's a temp fix but you'll have to repeat the steps when you machine starts up again.

Hi,

I've been running Vista for a few months now without much complaint until recently. After booting, the green loading bar is followed by the windows logo before the screen flickers several dark colors and then produces a black screen with a movable cursor. The hard drive light remains unlit after the black screen. Running in safe mode gives the same result. I do not have a repair disk and I would rather not wipe the hard drive with a factory default disk as I have important data on my hard disk.

I am running Toshiba Satellite with an Intel Core™2 Duo Processor T5550, 2 GB RAM and an ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3470 - 256 MB

I've been trying to restore my pc for a few days now with no luck. HELP!

I`m no Vista PRO, but the first thing i would do is:

Run Vista Startup Repair, that can be found in the tutorials.
(It is quite easy, just boot from the CD, and Repair it.)

If this doesn`t work, try to boot in safe mode and then Backup your things.
(To run in Safe Mode, i use the method, turn on wait until the vista logo comes, then turn off by the button, so next time you boot, you can choose to Safe Mode)

Backup the computer by a External Drive. ( Don`t use DVDs, its a waste)

for some reason I can't even get into windows 7, after I get pass the screen that says "asus" , my laptop brand, It goes into a black screen with a blinking cursor in the left hand corner like this:

I'm unable to do anything at that point, it just blinks. I can't even boot into safe mode now, the only think I'm able to get into is the Bios Setup Utility menus and Asus' express gate, which is just a media/internet/gaming/skype thing that doesn't allow .exe files to run...

This came factory installed so I don't have a windows 7 disc to help run fixes or anything. please, someone, help.

Hello grive and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried booting into Advanced Boot Options? As soon as you start your machine click the F8 key (top row of keyboard) and keep clicking until you see the Advanced Boot Options screen. This tutorial has a bit more info.

Advanced Boot Options

From here you should be able to choose from several different options including Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, etc.

Depending on your specific computer you may also have a hidden recovery partition that can return your machine to factory specs (just like the day it was when you got it home.) On some laptops you can press F9 at start up and that should open the recovery process. I believe you get four different options:

1. If none of the following recovery options is selected, the computer will just be rebooted to load Windows (if Recovery is started from the hard drive) or run the bootable disc in the optical drive.

2. The first partition is deleted (the others remain intact) and a new system partition C: will be created.

3. This option removes all the partitions from the hard drive and creates a new system partition C:.

4.This option removes all the partitions from the hard drive and creates two new partitions C: (60% of the drive’s storage capacity) and D: (40%).

You might want to check your owners manual or quick start guide to see if it gives more info.

Hi there,

I'm having troubles with my netbook that has never happened before. Lately it's been acting up. The netbook sometimes seems to go to a black screen with my cursor showing but cannot get out of the black screen at all. This happened a couple times now, and I'm forced to shutdown the netbook with the power button and restart it. This usually happens when I leave it idle while opened. Could this be a virus? I've had a couple viruses but I took them out. I did a full scan with Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. And an updated version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. The netbook was clean. I'll try to do a rescan and see what pops up. But is there any other tips as to how I should trouble shoot this issue? Thanks for the help!

A:Windows Stuck on Black Screen with Cursor....

If you had viruses, and cleaned them out, but are still having problems with the system........

You are better off backing up your data to external drive

A:Windows 7 black screen with cursor on boot up

When this happens, it could mean that one of your updates was installing and became corrupted, our was incompatible to begin with. When your computer its booting up, you should try to access the boot menu to see if the option to boot from last successful configuration is available. If not, can you enter the system recovery menu (F9), and try to recover the computer by resetting it to an earlier configuration? Do you have the install cd for windows?

A friend asked me to see if I could get his computer running again, but I'm about ready to pull what's left of my hair out. Its an eMachines mini desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Windows will not boot to the desktop screen, only to a black screen and mouse cursor. Hitting F8 only gets you safe mode options, all of which stall the same way. There's no "Last Known Good Configuration" option either. Using a Windows 7 64-bit rescue disk doesn't help, because it doesn't find anything wrong when running the diagnostics, and there aren't any restore points to revert back to. I've already tried the bootrec.exe /fixmbr and /fixboot remedy, no change. The computer is used by their kids quite a bit so I'm wondering if it might be virus/malware/Trojan related? Thanks for your help.

A:Windows 7 boots to black screen w/cursor

Hi There:
Sorry to hear you are having problems with your friend's eMachines pc. They are fine computers.

Before you try any of my sugestions, IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU BACKUP ALL OF YOUR FRIEND'S CRITICAL DATA! You should backup to an External Hard Drive, Flash Drive, or CD/DVD discs first!

With that said; here are the things you can try in this order:

1) Try to boot into the eMachines hidden Partition Recovery using F5, F7, F10, or F12 keys on power-up boot. You can download the eMachines User Manual from their website at: eMachines Support - Welcome to eMachines Support.

Once in that Recovery Menu, it will ask you what repair you want to try, and you want to restore the PC to Factory Condition, which is a DESTRUCTIVE operation and will destroy all of your friend's data and reinstall Win7 and all programs and settings that came with the computer when it was new out of the box right after your friend purchased it. This is why I had you backup your data first before you do this. **also, if you have never done this before, I suggest you take to a local computer expert or Certified Technician at your local computer store**.
THIS IS AN IRREVERSIBLE STEP!

After doing this, and you get the same Black Screen result, most likely your hard drive is damaged and possibly the Motherboard (Main Board) could also be damaged as well. Take to a local Certified Computer Expert at this point.

2.) Ask your friend for the Recovery Discs that came in the box when he/she purchased the computer. Many people lose them, or don't have the complete set. They are available from the Manufacturer, which is now Gateway, as Gateway purchased eMachines the company a few years ago. I will provide that link to purchase discs here: Contact Us

If your friend provides you with the Recovery Discs, there will most likely be from 2-6 dvd discs, possible more. Insert Disc1 of the Factory Recovery Disc set and restart the computer, it will give you a menu and choose the "Restore to Factory Condition" option or equivalent. After 3 hrs. or more (possibly 6 hrs.) it will restore your Win7 on that pc to original condition Win7 with all programs originally installed on that computer at the Factory as I mention in Step #1 above. **Once again, if you've never performed a full Factory Recovery, it is High Risk and I don't recommend it, that's best left to the Computer Experts like me.**

If Win7 boots to the Windows desktop you have fixed your friend's problem and after you test it on the Internet you can copy back all his backed up data onto it for him and return a working pc to him!

If however, Win7 still gives you the same Black Screen or a Black Screen with a white-lettered Error Message such as "ntbootldr.exe not available or not present"; you most likely have a faulty hard drive or Motherboard and it would need to be replaced.

3.) If you wish to try the simplest method to test your hardware, you can also borrow or buy a replacement hard drive or the correct type and capacity and swap the hard drive with the one in the pc now. **THIS STEP REQUIRES EXPERIENCE OPENING UP COMPUTERS; IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE THIS BEFORE AND DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT DOING, IT DON'T--TAKE TO A CERTIFIED COMPUTER EXPERT!!!!!****
If you can then install Win7 using Method #1 or Method #2 above on the hard drive and Win7 now boots; you have identified the culprit as a faulty hard drive and should replace it. If you know how to do that, you can reload his Win7 and then send his faulty hard drive out for Data Recovery to a local Computer Expert to get his data back so you can copy back onto his newly installed Win7 with-new-hard-drive setup and he'll be good to go!
