Preferred Solution: Black Screen of Death with Mouse Cursor before Login Screen

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Black Screen of Death with Mouse Cursor

Zac;   You should be good if you got the task manager open.  You should see some tabs at the top of the page.  If not, look in the bottom left corner of task manager.  Click on more info,  and then click on the startup tab.  look at the programs that started.  you should be able to get into one that will help you restore to your last backup.  I found that ccleaner was working and allowed me to restore my system to an earlier date when my computer was running well.  You will likely have to reload programs that were loaded in after that restore point BUT you will not loose any personal data.

My window backround appeared after i started the explorer and so did all my icon.. Everything looked fine so i restarted the desktop.. Same problem occured again, black screen with a mouse cursor... so i started explorer again in the task manager.. the problem is that the computer won't let me do anything.. because there no task running... I tried to go to the control panel and do a system restore but it gave me an error when i clicked on the control panel saying "no such interface was found" i tried downloading a anti malware program but the download failed because it was blocked..

And to make things worse my dad doesn't have the window 7 CD to restore it through the CD. what can i do?


UPDATE: I tried running it under window safe mode with networking it didn't work. My desktop couldn't even show up, I tried checking the disk (chkdsk /f) but it said i didn't have enough admin power or somethng like that. I manage to find a window 7 CD.. Going to see if i can repair it through the CD.

Alt+ctrl+del doesn't work, trying to boot up safe mode ends the same, can't recover since windows can't see any recovery points.

I didn't install any new software before it happened except for windows installing some new updates.

Recently I had issues with windows updates causing shut downs and blue screens but nothing so serious I couldn't deal with it.

I've red couple of threads about similar problem and so far I found one that could fix the issue ( Windows 7 boots to black screen with cursor before login screen after - Microsoft Community)
the only priblem is when I try to set full power to all users i get this message: "No mapping between account names and Security ID's was done." and at this point I'm just stuck or I'm just mistaken thinking it might help.

If there is a way to fix it ( No mapping between account names and Security ID's was done.) with cmd (since it's basically the only tool I have access to), or if there is totally different way to deal with it, I would be very gratefull for any help.


Hi there!

Hi Ejoe -- You won't have to spend anything, we will get it going. Just hang with us. == Does it get to the Windows screen with the logo? Did you install anything new the night before the problem?

I have recently encountered a problem with explorer.exe. A black screen with only mouse cursor appears for long time after login to my ID, it takes approximately 7 to 10 mins before the desk top loading up.

Anyway every time I now logon I have to press 'Ctrl-Alt-Del' and then open Task Manager, and run a new task 'explorer.exe' and everything is loading quickly. I'm just wondering why it keeps doing this?

Thanks, all help is appreciated,
Val

Can you boot into safe mode? If you can try SFC. Also if safe mode works try a clean startup.

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.

A:Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank)

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).

Hello. Recently had a virus and have been going through the steps here on bleeping computer to help get rid of it. The last thing I was told to do was run the farbar scan tool and to copy and paste a code and hit fix. Upon doing so the computer prompted for a restart. It now won't get to the log in screen. I've tried booting in safe mode and I've also tried last known working configuration as suggested and nothing has worked unfortunately. I was told to come here. Hopefully something can be done. Thanks a ton.

A:Windows won't get to login screen, black screen and cursor

Tap F8 at boot and select Repair Computer from the Advanced Boot Options. Do a System Restore to a date just before the problem. 
 
You cannot do the above and if you have another Windows 7 computer create a System Repair Disk. Boot and try a System Restore to a date just before the problem.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.

As I brought my computer out of sleep mode the computer had crashed with the screen showing vertical, multicolored lines that vaguely resembled gray.

I had to hard restart my computer and after the splash screen, the login screen with all the users never appears, nor does my cursor.

Nothing is on my screen except a faint glow indicating that it's active.

Could anyone help me solve this problem? I've searched on Google but all the results have something to do with the cursor displaying.

I've already tried doing a System Restore and Startup Repair.

Currently posting from Safe Mode w/ Networking.

Hi, I have recently installed windows updates and after restart the black screen occurred after I typed my password. About five days before that I have reinstalled my Mobile Intel 4 series driver and now in Device manager it shows 3 grayed out monitors which were installed when I have reinstalled the Video driver. The monitor driver that Is currently loaded was installed when I installed the OS itself. Is it safe to remove the grayed out drivers and will this fix my problem?

Thanks!

if you delete them after you press check for hardware changes will they reappear?
if so uninstall them hard then reboot your PC you might wanna create a restore point first in case some thing wrong happens, refer to this link if you dont know how:Create a restore point

So i was trying to extend my system partition using easeus partition manager and on restarting a black screen with movable cursor is there, no login screen. To clarify i can't access the task manager (no response) and same thing happens in safe mode.
I didn't have the windows 7 installation disc as i got this Windows pre-installed from laptop manufacturer so i used my win 10 installation disc to try and repair it. Startup repair couldn't fix anything chkdsk found nothing sfc scannow using offbootdir and offwindir did nothing. I don't have any restore points which i don't why happened because i just installed a win 7 update which created a restore point? Please suggest any solution short of repair install.

Ps i don't get last known good configuration option on boot menu only safe mode so don't suggest that

Hello, and Welome
 
If you have access to another Windows 7 computer, you can create a System Repair Disk and from that do a "Startup Repair" It may take up to three times before the repair is successful. Can  you retrieve the data from the hard drive using splashtop?

A:W7 64 bit black screen of death without cursor

So I figured the worst that would happen is that I would corrupt the data on the thumb drive which wouldnt be a big deal, but nope the screen immediately went completely blank and a reboot gave the same result.

Any ideas?

I had a black screen of death in win 7. That is where windows gets to the point I think where it tries to load the shell. I found a fix on the internet and when I rebooted it got to the same point so I left it alone and it finally came up a hour later, but everything was at a snails pace to open and somethings did not open. I ran the cmd line "sfc /scannow" and it said it fixed some issues, but nothing is better?
I also tried deleting the video card in safe mode and adding new video drivers.
Anyone know how to fix this without fresh install?
Thanks in advance!

I have done two things that may have led to this problem --- I scanned my system with Malwarebytes and it detected four things that were quarantined and deleted RiskWare Tool CK RiskWare Tool CK Hacktool Agent Hacktool KeySteal I have no knowledge on technical matters but I'm assuming maybe removing these things might have caused something --- with of cursor death white Black screen And I recently used chkdsk to scan for errors and remove bad sectors This is basically what was changed according to my chkdsk report Cleaning up unused index entries from index SII of file x Cleaning up unused index entries from index SDH of file x Cleaning up unused security descriptors --- Ever since I did both of these things I've been getting the black screen of death with a moving white cursor so I have reason to believe either one of Black screen of death with white cursor those two things might have caused the problem because before that everything was fine Basically it'll go to the black screen for like five minutes and then it'll boot up as normal Could someone please tell me the reason for this as well as a solution A fast reply would be greatly appreciated because right now I am panicking Thank you so much -A

Welcome
I doubt if the problem is caused by either, but lets test the hard drive. Download crystal software (make sure you use the correct download, the site is full of pay stuff). If the HD is bad it will show.
Either way report back and we shall look further if necessary

Hi colleagues! I'd like to get some tips on how to get around this problem of "getting a black screen with a cursor" after login. Yes, I'm suffering the same problem since a week with Vista ultimate x86 running on vaio notebook with NVIDIA graphic card. Now the problem is I see explorer running in task manager processes but even stopped it and rerunned it but nothing appeared on screen except the black dead screen. How can I figure out this problem, I tried all the solutions that I read on forums like updating video card, installing KB.. smthng windows update, deactivating themes in safe mode and then entering, but the problem persists. And I login SOMETIMES when I'm lucky without but very often get this problem. I'll appreciate it if somebody could help get around this most common vista problem these days????

My PC loads and after I log on, I go to a black screen with only my cursor. I am able to CTRL ALT DEL and reach the task manager however.

I've read about many people having similar problems to this with Vista.
Most people seem to be able to get around it by CTRL ALT DEL and File(run) explorer.exe, but this does not work for me, and the screen remains black.

I have also tried to run in safe mode, same thing, black screen.

Has anyone found another way to even reach the desktop? Any solutions aside from reformatting?

Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Vista black screen of death/moving cursor

Hi aftermathsample, welcome to the board.

Was there anything wrong before the updating? Were you updating the BIOS or chipset drivers? What exact drivers are you updating? Can you boot into safe mode? if you can, go ahead and backup your data before doing anything. Have you been mass around the inside of the case before this happened? May be you have to reinstall after all.

It is helpful for diagnostic if you post your spec of your computer.

Okay, so basically I get the black screen of death after "Start Windows" and before the login screen.

What I've tried and failed to work
- System Repair
- System Restore (no restore points apparently
- Memory Check (nothing)
- Ctr+Alt+Delete on black screen and Task Manager does not pop up.
- chkdsk - no problems

I seem to get the black screen in normal safe mode but in networking and command prompt I can actually log in. Is there anything I can do from here?

Note: I am having this problem with a laptop

A:Black Screen of death before login

Hi,

As you have already followed most of the Troubleshooting and as you are able to log in “Safe mode with Networking”, I would suggest you to try creating a New User account and then try to enter in this New User account in Normal Mode.

If the issue still persists, you can even try restoring system back to factory settings and then check the performance of the system. Ensure backing up your data before reinstalling Operating system or PC restore.

Please Help! I have a Black screen with cursor after login. Have attempted system repair/restore, safe mode and rebooting to last good Windows startup etc. Also I can't use CTRL ALT DLT. Only way to successfully get task manager is through CTRL SHIFT ESC. Please not I have the same issue even in safe mode.

When I get there I notice explorer.exe is not visible. When I try to run it it doesn't work. I get an error message saying "the application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect. please see the application event log or use the command -line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

Not very educated with these things so would appreciate step by step guidance. Thank you.

A:Black Screen with Cursor = Slow Login

The first thing to do when registering with our forum (especially if you have an issue you want assistance with) is to fill out your system specs. This allows our knowledgeable members to assist you better with your issue. It is very simple to do: please follow these steps below

First click on UserCP


Next click on Edit System Spec


Now you will see various fields for different types of hardware. Don't worry if you have no idea what kind of hardware it is asking for or the brand you have as I will explain how to get Windows to list it for you. For now keep that window open

Now click on start and type msinfo32.exe in the search field and press enter

Now you should have a window resembling mine below


With this information in hand lets start to fill out the specs

System Manufacture/Model Number
As you see in my screen shot I have no listing due to my laptop being a custom build (I made it myself). For most people out there usually this will list a name brand like Dell and a model like 1525.



OS
OS or Operating System for short is the main program that drive's your computer...notable example here being the Windows Operating System developed by Microsoft Corporation. Notice that I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64



CPU
CPU or Central Processing Unit (Processor) is the brain of the computer. Notice that I have an Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5GHz



Motherboard
The motherboard is where all the hardware parts of the computer are connected to. Mine is a custom build JFT02

Memory
Memory is what allows applications to run on your computer. The more memory you have the faster an application start. I have 4GB of Memory



Graphics Card(s)
A graphics card/cards allow the computer to display an image to a monitor and allow you to play games. Notice I have a NVIDIA 8600M GT 512MB



Sound Card(s)
A sound card/cards allow the computer to play sound. Notice I have an HD Audio Device



Screen Resolution
This is the output measurement of the image being displayed by your monitor. Mine is 1680*1050



Hard Drives
Hard Drives are the primary storage of the computer (think of how this relates to a stomach on a human being). This is where your documents/music/photos/videos are located. Notice mine is a Seagate 7200RPM 120GB

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 !!!

Hola... Well, A Vista issue..

A perfectly working Vista machine, on startup after login we go to a black screen with a cursor in normal or safe mode, thought it might be busy, but ran all night and never completely booted up, if ctl-alt-del, you can log off normal, and shut down or restart.

Unfortunately I was a MS dummie and never made a sys restore point, but beyond that this should not happen, and I am probally not the only one.

Any others with this issue and any resolve other than re-installing windows.

Thank you in advance.

It started a morning a few days ago. When I login on any user, nothing shows up, not even a cursor. It's just black.
So I got into safe mode and disabled my graphics card (intel 965 integrated) and everything worked. So now I have my graphics card disabled, but I can't have the Aero effects or the screen resolution.

The driver installed is the latest one, and I have tried the Prevx fix and everything.
Also ctrl alt delete in the blank screen works (the blue menu shows up full screen)
but when I click Task Manager, it goes back to the black screen.

What should I do?

When i try to turn on my computer it boots up regularly, but after the "starting windows" logo is done the screen goes black with just a visible active cursor in the middle. The computer will not start in safe mode either, encountering the same problem.

This is leaving me with little options to explore the problem, but so far I've tried to repair the windows installation with no success, but i have created a temporary windows 7 OS on another partition.

Anyone know what to do in these situations?

After booting the computer and logging in I am at a black screen with a cursor, I can use ctrl+alt+dlt to open task manager. I am not able to open explorer.exe

I had problems with the Blue screen of death multiple times and ended up doing a complete factory restore on my computer. After the factory restore is when I encountered this current problem with the black screen.

I've seen numerous posts on this topic, but none have lead me in the correct direction since many of the solutions required being able to open explorer.exe

The black screen with cursor also happens in safe mode. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated and I will need it somewhat dumbed down for the instructions. Thanks.

Hello and welcome Andrew as you are willing to reinstall then I suggest you do this
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 make sure you pick the right version from the list of ISO's as the wrong one will show up as invalid width the activation code on your machine sticker.
To pick the right version see pic and as an advantage this will get rid of all the factory bloatware

You will of course need access to another machine to download that ISO - I use a disk but a stick will do I just prefer the disk myself.

A:Black login screen, only a cursor Windows 7 x64

I'm having the same problem on my 32bit system.

try this

1. When you see the black screen and white cursor press CTRL+ALT+DEL
2. Select Task Manager
3. File > New Task (Run...)
4. Type explorer.exe

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

Good luck.

I have an HP dv9500t Intel T7300 C2D w/ 2 GB memory and Vista Premium. This has just started in the last couple of days after installing Trend Micro Internet Security. After boot up and entering my password on the login screen, the login begins with the colored Vista screen and the spinning circle (hour glass) and then will fade to black with nothing but the cursor visible. It will stay this way from anywhere between 1-3 minutes and finally will finish the login and the main screen will come up. It's very frustrating.

I have even uninstalled Trend Micro and it is still doing the same thing. Any known fixes for this problem? Are there any Vista updates for this problem. If anyone has had this problem and has a solution, it would be greatly appreicated. This laptop is only a month old!!!

A:Windows won't boot after format / Black screen of death (with cursor)

It sounds like you are not setting the machine to boot from disc first

Sorry i dont know your computer experience but are you sure you have entered bios and double checked the boot order ?
DVD first them HDD second
Also are you sure you have created your media correctly ie bootable
Be aware a recovery disc created on a 32 bit machine will only work if your machine is 32 bit and same for 64 bit
You could also try putting your downloaded iso onto a usb flash drive and boot from that if you are having optical drive issues

Tutorial here for reinstalling and the first part gives instructions for download and burn to usb if it helps

A:Win7 Black screen of death with cursor on all boot modes

Please post exact sfc command you did. (I think it was correct btw). It took many minutes to complete? did it report "no integrity errors found" ?
It doesn't create a logfile because you ran it in recovery environment. To create a logfile:

Code:
set WINDOWS_TRACING_LOGFILE=C:\CBS.log
after that run the SFC command. When it has finished you have a file C:\CBS.LOG

Pull out the hard drive and put it aside for now. Get a new drive and install it. Load Windows fresh. Apply all the drivers and Windows updates. Install the old drive as a second drive and recover your important files that way

A:Black screen of death during login; tried basically everything

 You can download Mint or Ubuntu Linux and burn it to a DVD, then boot from it and access your files.  Both these versions of Linux have Windows like user interfaces so there's very little to learn in order to use them.  Mint is closer than Ubuntu, but either one would serve you well.  Just go to mintlinux.com or ubuntu.com and download an ISO image, burn it to a DVD, and boot from it.  You'll be up and running in 3 min.  You don't have to install anything, just click TRY when you boot from the disc.
 
Good luck.

I ve been handed a Vista Home Premium laptop to mend and whilst I ve got it going I m posting this to share my discoveries for what seems to be a not uncommon problem I must say that having read lots of other posts on this subject my solution solved & Vista black cursor - login gives screen may not be the one relevant to anyone else I m not explaining all the details as I would Vista login gives black screen & cursor - solved do normally because if you need them explaining then perhaps this post is not for you The problem was that on boot up all looks well but having logged on the user is presented with a black screen and a cursor which can be moved There is also disk activity but it never gets any further Ctrl Alt Del won t even bring up its menu Booting into safe mode and logging in gives the safe mode screen safe more in the corners and a cursor but nothing else - no task bar etc This time Ctrl Alt Del will bring up a menu but selecting Task Manager apparently does nothing Having used Linux tools to make sure all was backed up I ran a chkdsk on the drive removed it and ran it on another computer but nothing showed up I then booted into safe mode with command prompt which worked - at least in part I was given a command prompt window so was able to try and run things rstrui and explorer appeared to do nothing though trying rstrui again gave the message that it was already running I was able to access a memory stick and also able to run Process Explorer which showed that rstrui and explorer were indeed running so I killed them I noticed that one instance of svchost exe was using CPU so I killed it and tried starting explorer from the command prompt and I got up the safe mode help screen and the task bar I was also able to run rstrui again but found there were no restore points I think the owner might have killed any that were there by her own initial attempts - it s certainly set to make them Occasionally the svchost exe started again but I m not sure exactly what was happening there While svchost was running I was able to get into event viewer and could get at most windows logs but it never completed finding system events so maybe there s a corruption there I set the Windows Event Log service to disabled and rebooted and the machine booted up OK and logged in I then changed svchost service to manual and started the service without any apparent problems although the event viewer just says quot Expand in progress quot and then shows Event Viewer local with a no entry sign Rebooting with the service set to manual gave the same original problem so back to safe mode command prompt to kill the svchost item Having killed the svchost process I restarted the windows event log service and was able to view the system log this time I took the opportunity to clear all windows logs and then try rebooting again and this time it started OK I had noticed that the system event log had entries in it and the application log wasn t too far behind It all seems to be working again now and my feeling is that it probably had something to do with the log event files maybe corrupt or too big nbsp

I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I was using chkdisk and now it will not boot anymore. It only goes so far as to have a black screen and a mouse cursor. If I leave it like that it will eventually reboot and then comes back to the black screen with the mouse cursor. I was wondering if it is possible to repair my system without reinstalling the entire operating system. I don't have a CD or DVD, just a recovery partition.

Hello! You should have let Windows shut down the pc on it's own. Pressing the power button to shut it down might have caused issues.

Reboot then as soon as you see your Computer Name system post logo, HP, Dell etc...

Tapping F8 go to Advanced Options or Repair Computer select the language then select "Repair Your Computer" Windows will look for errors if any weather or not it does go to other options go to command prompt type in
CHKDSK C: /R
This will attempt to fix any file system errors and repair any corrupted system files.
This check Disk will take some time be patient have a cup of coffee or a whole pot.

When the scan is complete reboot.

I've seen a lot of posts on the internet about a black screen after a reboot. My problem is similar but it happens after I lock windows (Win->L). I get a black screen and can see/move the mouse cursor around but cannot ever get the login screen again. Crtl-Alt-Delete does nothing. I end up having to do a hard reboot. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 on an ASUS p6t board. I've checked the event logs and there is nothing before the hard reboot. Any ideas?

This will happen if your partition table got corrupted. U would try these methods.

Boot from your vista cd and select repair my computer>startup repair. If still unsolved, Boot from your vista dvd repair my computer>select command prompt and type these commands,

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /RebuildBcd

Let me know the result....

I've got a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop I'm helping a friend try and fix.
I believe it has Windows 8 Pro.
After powering up past the bios screen and the "starting windows" screen, it is just a black screen showing the mouse cursor, which moves around without issue. It does the exact same thing in safe mode.
I've tried loading last good configuration, the dell diagnostics, the Kaspersky rescue disc, and reseating the ram.
Not sure where to go from here.

Working on a Dell XPS 410 running Windows Vista. First booted into normal mode...after Vista loads the desktop comes to a screen that is completely blacked out, except for the mouse cursor that does move around. The system does boot into safe mode...even safe mode w/ networking. So I installed Malwarebytes and updated to latest version and performed a full scan. About 40 infections were found and successfully quarantined and deleted. When I was promted to reboot the system, I did so and let it boot into normal mode. But to no avail did the removal of found infections seem to fix whatever problems is causing this solid black desktop with no icons, taskbar, or anything except a movable mouse cursor. Does anybody have any ideas I can try before I decide to just re-install Vista anew. Thanks for any and all help.

I used dejco's Logon Studio many times, but this last time (after an update reset my login screen) made my computer crap out. After the logon was applied, I had to shut the computer down. Windows Explorer wouldn't respond, so I did a hard shutdown. On reboot, I got the Black Screen with a visible and controllable cursor. I've disabled driver signature enforcement for development reasons. I've read across the net that it could be bad display adapter drivers conflictiong with the shell. I've tried System Restore, and I've tried restoring a backup. I also ran checkdisk as well as sfc /scannow in WinRE. CCleaner and a select few other apps from my HDD run, but the majority give me the typical subsystem-not-present error. I'm using an ubuntu live CD right now. I'd rather avoid a reinstall, as I have almost a terabyte of stuff I can't lose. How the heck do i fix this?

Hello ToonArmy,

You might be able to do a factory recovery of Vista. If your not sure of how to do a factory recovery, then post back with what brand is your laptop and I'll be happy to see if I can wrangle up some instructions from your laptop manufacturer's website for you.

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

You should read this topic (Chigers): black screen - flash bios V5-571
You have the same setup bios utility (V5-531 or V5-571): Phoenix SecureCore Tiano BIOS
 
To summarize:
1- Download the bios file on the acer support website
2- If it's necessary (Windows version), extract the self-extratible file (*.exe) contained in the zip
    file with 7-zip
3- Format an USB flash drive to FAT or FAT32
4- Copy all files on this one (contained in the Dos or Windows(#2) folder)
5- Follow the instructions of Chigers to recorver the bios

A:Black Screen At Boot But Have A Mouse Cursor

I think you can bring up the task manager (ctrl+alt+del).

The problem is that your explorer.exe is corrupted or does not get loaded. If you don't see explorer.exe in task manager, run it from File->new task->then type explorer.exe
But you have to make sure that explorer.exe loads every time. To do it,
copy the I386 folder from windows setup cd to you HDD.

while windows is booting, press F8 key and ADVANCED start up option will appear.
select SAFE MODE WITH COMMAND PROMPT.

navigate to your windows directory.
then rename explorer.exe to explorer.bak or something.
Now go to the i386 directory.

use this command :

expand Explorer.ex_ x:\windows
// where 'x' is your drive letter where windows is installed.

now restart your PC and check the result.



But if you already see explorer.exe running. right click and 'end task' it. and then run the process afresh. This should be a temporary soln. After that do this,
From task manager,

click file then run and type MSCONFIG

On ther general tab

click Selecticve start up

uncheck the following: process system
process win
load startup items

then click on the services tab,

click on the HIDE all mircosoft services)located on the bottom. then uncheck all the boxes that remain.

restart your computer. everything should be ok, but 1 last step.

insert your xp disk and do a clean boot. clcik install , when it goes to install make sure it says UPDATE(recomended) or you will lose all your files. it should be there already . if it is do the update it will tkae about 1hour, and all your files will be there adn the problems fixed. You might have reinstall some of your programs. but all should be well.

even if your screen doesn't come up after loading explorer.exe again, you can perform the second soln. with a black screen.

First problem is, I get a very slow download speed but a fast upload speed.
(I haven't downloaded my drivers yet but if it happens after driver installation, I'll post a new thread I guess)


The major problem that I have is the "black screen" after windows updates.

I had to restore my computer.

Now, I want to avoid the updates that cause black screen.

Can anyone tell me which one I should not install from my screenshots?

Hi,

Are you installing all of those at the same time? I have seen suggestions to install the .NET ones separately from the others, although I'm unsure if that is the absolute fix for your issue. I think its worth a try.

It boots up, but just goes to an all black screen with a mouse cursor. I can move the mouse, but ctrl + alt + del doesn't do anything. There is nothing else on the screen other than the mouse cursor.

I have tried the startup repair, no help.

I tried system restore, says no restore points found.

I don't think that Powermax disk will really help you because I think all that does is tell you if the drive is bad. Have you tried doing a system restore yet? Start the computer and press F8, choose Restore Windows to a previous working state and hopefully the Spyware didn't screw up you restore points.

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop w/ Windows XP Home Edition. After I turn on the PC I see and hear it POST, then the Windows XP splash screen, then it hangs at a black screen with mouse pointer cursor. The cursor moves with the mouse movement. It will stay like this and not progress.
This is what I have tried:
1. Tried another known good video card.
2. Re-seated RAM
3. CHKDSK /R
4 Booted off XP Home CD, Repair Install (Not R to Recovery Console)
After files were removed and files copied the PC rebooted, Windows XP splash, then the black screen again.
5. FIXBOOT
6. FIXMBR


I think my next step would be to slave the disk and copy all important data off of it. Then remove the partition, create a new partition, format and install XP fresh.

Unless there is another way to fix this? What would cause this?

I start up my PC and after the Windows logo load I receive a black screen with the mouse cursor still visible. I have tried restarting my PC, still no luck. I restarted again but this time went onto safe mode (which works perfectly). I ran spyware and virus checks (Spybot and AVG Free Edt) and found a few spyware but no viruses, so I deleted the spyware then restarted Windows normally. Still doesn't work.

This first occured whilst I was playing Oblivion. The game just crashed unexpectadely, and the screen just went black with the cursor still visible. I then just shut down my computer by the power switch because I was unable to gain access to the desktop. after this I turned on my PC and receive a black screen with the mouse cursor still visible after the Windows loadup. (where it shows the Windows logo)

Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks!
 

A:Black screen with visible mouse cursor

Uninstall your video drivers from Add/Remove programs in Safe Mode (assuming you have an add-on card) and then see if you can boot normally into Windows.

If you can, the vid drivers were at fault.

If not, then some other drivers are.
