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

Hey everyone I did a bit of research and this seems to have been an issue for a while or has been in the past Was upgrading to windows I first had to restart my pc cause it was initially stuck on that preparing to install problem with the green bar being stuck around It then got through that and began the installation process with the big circle and rebooting process However around when I last looked at it it was just black screen this stayed this way for about - hours I then decided to reboot the pc and it has now booted to the login screen Is this a known (no screen just Black Screen to blank) but cursor of Doom Booted login bug or could there be a possible issue The problem seems a bit different Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) as some people I saw have had to fall back on PC restore points etc So not sure if it installed or what could be the problem Also side note I upgraded my pc when windows first publically released but rolled back because I had about min shutdown times So not sure what is Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) going on and any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks

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.)

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).

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?

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.

Apologies if this is in the wrong section I have a Dell Inspiron and the owner said that his son installed BearShare and it's been giving him complications He told me it sometimes freezes when he tries to start the computer and has to give it a hard shut down I hopefully removed BearShare with Malwarebytes and MSE yet I can't seem to find why it's not letting me boot up regularly It boots into safe mode fine and I can access everything from there but when I try to restart into regular mode it Black active screen, cursor before screen. login just hangs after 'Starting Windows' with a black screen and active mouse cursor I've tried various tutorials from searching quot black screen active cursor quot quot laptop frozen after starting windows quot etc but nothing that I try works After a few hours of research I keep seeing the reoccurring phrase 'shell' I believe it's not being loaded correctly or at all I've tried a fix by Prevx that said it would fix the black screen to no avail But here's the funny part Sometimes it boots to Windows fine and everything acts as it should There's been several times I was about to call the guy and tell him that the laptop is finished but I hesitated and restarted just to see if it was fully fixed Vid Dell - YouTube Let me know if I need to post further information -Dustin

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!

Hi werty,
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

I have read other threads regarding this issue and am unable to fix it. Task Manager does NOT display the RunOnce Wrapper and System Restore has failed to fix it. When I tried to refresh, I got the message that there is not enough space to facilitate it. It is suggested I free up some space. How do I do that if I cannot visually access the drive?

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.

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 new Yoga 2 13 (I7  Hybrid Disk, Windows 8.1) frequently reverts to a black screen with working curser after user password has been entered at startup.The machine is working in the background and CTRL/Alt/Delete will bring up the menu allowing access to Task Manager etc.Shutting down and restarting eventually fixes the issue until the next time. Bios and patches are up to date.There are many reports of this type of problem for Windows 8 for all types of machines, but no one appears to have a definitive fix.I noticed that the machine starts correctly (at least it has not failed yet) if I unplug the Logitech wireless mouse dongle.Has anyone else had this scenario or similar?

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

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.

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 !!!

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.

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.

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.

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: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.

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?

Hi. I was infected with Antivirus 2009 or something similar about a week ago. Ran malwarebytes (I think that's the correct name) and have had no problems since. I was scanning some photos when the program shut down and went to blue screen with message that windows had encountered a problem and shut down. I turned off my laptop and tried to reboot but have gotten nothing but a blank, black screen. No cursor, no login info, no options. Have tried F8. Have removed and reinserted RAM. Tried starting up with and without battery. Tried connecting to external monitor.

My laptop is an HP dv1660se running Windows XP Home with SP3.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Additional info: My antivirus software is eset NOD 32.

Malwarebytes removed these files: tcpservice2.exe; zserv.dll; wstart.dll

I originally posted on the virus forum and Mark suggested I post here.

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

Hello, members of TechSpot this is my first post rather a urgent first post. (I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section.)
- My dell Model : Inspiron Model P07F.

My Stated Problem : My computer was getting really slow so, I decided to restore my computer to it's factory state. As I did that I got too impatient and shut the computer off right at 30% while I regret it after I attempt to turn on the computer. I get the dell logo with F2 and F12 at the bottom of the screen (No Problem at all) but, at I get into further I only get a blinking underscore/cursor. And it seems like forever and I keep restarting and the same problems keep going on and on. Can someone please help me?
 

A:Blank/black screen with blinking cursor/underscore!

The same thing happened to my laptop not too long ago.

Did you by any chance create a system repair disc? I would try that. If you do not have a repair disk, then you can use your Windows installation disc to restore your system. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you have either one of these.

If you do not have either, you can try creating a new account. But this should only be a last ditch effort, in my opinion. I still prefer repairing with the disk.

Shut down your laptop. Reboot until you get to the Dell logo where its says "Press F2..." Once there, press Ctrl + F11 simultaneously, and then release both at the same time. This should prompt a Restore Options screen. Follow the directions and wait for the loading bar to finish. You should be able to create a new account after that.

Please note that I'm not certain the second option will work, but a friend has told me it did for his Dell. Good luck.

Use your windows install cd and get back into the Recovery console, instead of chkdsk, run the FixMBR and Fixboot commands. In all instances that i've encountered the "blinking curser", it's been a corrupt or modified MBR record.

It's definitely a problem with the graphics card.

It started this morning. 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.

However the special effects and graphics are all disabled. What should I do?
The driver I have installed is the latest one.

The blank screen then came up with the blinking cursor on the top left corner . Is there any possible way I can fix this problem myself ?

A:Blank black screen with blinking cursor at top left corner

Norton Ghost is a Clone/Imaging software to clone your existing HDD to a different HDD. What exactly were you trying to do?

Boot off of the Windows Disc Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn Boot off of the CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. Disk Check Outside Windows (Windows XP) The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools, or DriveFitness in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and Advanced tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.

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,

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

Win7 Home Premium Toshiba, at login screen it has a black background with a cursor. This happened today after my computer froze and I had to restart it. I've tried starting it in safe mode but every time I hit F8 at startup, it makes a little beeping noise and does nothing. I've tried booting it from the HDD and it's still doing the same thing. Anything that you will helps me please post.

Hi Rebecca,

Welcome to the forum.

Have a look here and maybe follow some of the links;
System Recovery Options

The tutorials are well written and easy to follow.

Should this be of no help you also have the choice of having your PC repaired under warranty you just need to take it back to where you bought it.

I hope this helps

Hello friends, I recently got the Gnome desktop environment on the Ubuntu Software Center, and I used the gdm and startx command as said by another forum site. Nothing wrong, they said to logout, tried to login again, goes to a black screen and sends me back to the Ubuntu login screen. Tried again, same result, panicked. Looked up video tutorial on how to fix it, they said to access the control panel via ctrl-alt-f1 or f2, went to a black screen, no text at all, computer runs fine, no crashing. Is there a special way to access the terminal in a System76 computer, I really don't know very confusing? Is there a way to login with the guest session? I use Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf on my laptop. What causes this, I read on Ubuntu forums it's driver issues with Ubuntu and Nvidia, but I have my suspections with the Gnome desktop environment.

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.

I'll preface this with the fact that I'm an idiot and really need help.

My computer decided to just go to a black screen (no mouse present at all) and won't do anything after that.

In addition to that, the logon screen will disappear after maybe 10-15 seconds and then just go to a black screen. It'll say loading personalized settings, not ask for my password, and then going right to the black screen after a few seconds. I can boot from safe mode, but it'll do something similar with the logon screen. The logon screen will pop up, then go black for a few seconds...and then safe mode will finally boot.

Any ideas on what I could do to fix this? Wiping the drive would be an absolute last resort...My master's thesis is on the computer and I need it.

Hi all,

I have an HP G62 laptop with windows 7 x64 and got The Black Screen.
here are the symptoms:
-black screen,
-no cursor,
-no beeps,
-no sound, except fan, and hard disk
-The hard drive spins trying to boot then stops after a couple of minutes tries again.
-the fan runs constantly
-the caps lock led is on and off
-no CD in tray
-At power up I do not see the ( underscore on top left corner) , F8 does nothing it is totally black.

I have so far tried to
-power then F8 before normal boot
-plugged external monitor (in case of display failure)
-changed the Ram sticks (in case of display failure)
-hard or forced reset : Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series | HP? Support

nothing seems to work
any suggestions? other than obvious toss?
Cheers

A:Black screen of doom windows 7

Unplug A/C and battery, hold power button to release residual power, plug back in A/C to see what happens. Then plug in battery to see if it can power PC after reset.

Next take the RAM sticks out to see if you get beep codes indicating life in the mobo.

If so replace them one at a time to see if you can get any display.

If not remove hard drive to see if it is blocking boot, although you should get some image on your external monitor if there is still a display adapter or mobo life.

If by slim chance the HD is blocking boot, try booting into a disk to see if it comes alive. You'd then need to slave the HD to another PC to rescue files, wipe it and replace to reinstall.

Report back results on these and one of the hardware guys will probably recognize the condition.

Sometimes the wire harness on the laptop monitor needs reconnecting, for which there may be a video for you model if you google it.

A:The Black screen of doom is back!

Hi there, You said you were trying to install Windows 7 but which version are you trying to install. As you mentioned XP install fine, is it possible to access safe mode when this black screen is displayed, restart your machine and keep pressing f8, then from the menu choose safe mode. This way we can rule the graphics card as the culprit.

The other thing I can thing of is that the driver your installing on XP, needs to be XP driver and I am sure you have probably done this already but it is good to check. You could try also installing an older version if provided on the graphics card manufcaturer.

I would personall run a test on the hard drive, I would start with a check disk which can be done using safemode + cmd , the recover console or a live CD. This way we can test the Hard Drive for errors. The live cd I would recommend is http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ which provides many Hard drive testing.

I know the memory you have is new so I cannot say that you need to test it, however try the install with lesser RAM. I can't technically explain how in any way this will do anything, however when your troubleshooting you have to do many things.

Test the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic software. You will need to use the DOS version which runs from a bootable CD in order to test the system hard drive, since you should not attempt to test a system drive using the OS that's on it. The links are here:

The only time it comes on properly is if i press F8 on start up and choose "last best known configuration". and then it starts right up. What can i do to stop this malfunction.

any help is appreciated, thanks.

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?

Hello,

My laptop will not boot. I end up with an empty black screen or a blue screen with no icons, just a cursor. I get choices for 'normal startup' or ' repair' but not safe mode. Any help appreciated.

When I turn on my computer all I get is a black screen with the flashing cursor up in the left corner of the screen. Any ideas as to how to correct this? I have a Dell from he'll computer-- inspiron E1505 about 8 years old and just had windows 7 home edition installed on it

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?

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.

I'm not sure what it's talking about and what to re install and I can't reinstall whatever it is because I can't get to the start menu.

After the Starting Windows screen a blank black screen with a cursor that I can move pops up that lasts a minute (shouldn't happen with SSD, used to be ~10 second boot). Afterwards the login screen will appear as normal and everything works as normal. This doesn't happen when I boot into safe mode.

I attached a list of start up services, installs, and scheduled tasks, along with my latest boot log.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to Seven Forums Tienjt.

You can run this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and post back with results.
Below my sig is a link to MalwareBytes, download the free version, update it, and run a full scan.

Have you installed anything new, hardware or software? Sometimes OEM's don't/won't have driver updates.

Hi,

I cant get into my desktop. When i start my pc XP loads, and it starts the last known good configuration. I then seen the xp loading screen.

Next i should be able to see the login screen, however this is a blank black screen, the mouse is visible and i can move it around the screen, but i cant see anything to log into the desktop.

I dont know why this has happened, it was working last night. The only thing i can think of was my brother switched the power off as it was shutting down. The shut down had automatic updates running (i think) at the time the power switches were turned off.

How do i solve this so i can see the login screen and get into my pc?

Hope someone can help, cheers.

Paul

Hello Paul

Boot into Safe Mode Options Screen (the one with Last Known Good Configuration on it) by pressing F8 at bootup and choose
'Safe mode with command prompt'

At the command prompt type
C:\Windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Hopefully this will open System Restore, so restore to before the problem started

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.

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).
