Vista boots into blue screen w/ cursor (black screen in safe mode)

Q: Vista boots into blue screen w/ cursor (black screen in safe mode)

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?

Preferred Solution: Vista boots into blue screen w/ cursor (black screen in safe mode)

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.)

Having an issue with a laptop that has Vista installed.  I am getting the dredded black screen with movable white cursor.  There are no system restores available and I cannot start in Safe Mode.  I can start from a recovery disk to access the command prompt
 
I have seen many people running FRST in this forum for the same issue.  I was wondering if anyone would be able to try and assist me and, if they recommend me attempting to use the FRST program, I can post the results.

When I restarted after the blue screen it went into a check disk but would not finish the scan.

A:Blue screen & now won't start in safe mode, screen goes black

I'm writing from my husband's laptop because my desktop is completely dead.

We were out of town for several days and when we returned my desktop was running very slow so I attempted to restart it. It locked up, I pressed/held the power button and when it restarted it attempted to run a disk check. The disk check locked up and I had to press/hold the power button again. When it restarted I got a blue screen ~ stop: C0000218 unknown hard error.

Sometimes when I attempt to restart it I get: checking file system on C:
file system = NTFS

When I attempt to restart it in safe mode, safe mode with networking or starting in last known good configuration I get . . .

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\appPatch\drvmain.sdb
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers\ . . . (various items)

Now it won't start, not even in safe mode. Everything I try ~ I just get a black screen.

** I just tried to restart AGAIN and it ran disk scan, said it had completed disk scan and would restart, the screen went black when it attempted to restart and the screen is still black and it won't restart.

What can I do to get my computer back?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I decided to start a different topic because an earlier issue became something else. Earlier I was experiencing problems with thumbnails being mixed up and a system restore was suggested.
Before the system restore I also followed a guide which detailed specific Windows updates to uninstall (something to do with tracking software).
It's worth mentioning that I've been able to restart normally after uninstalling certain tracking-related things.
After attempting a system restore I got stuck on a black screen with an active cursor. I can't get into safe mode and nothing in the repair options seems to be helping. I don't have a Windows 7 CD.

Hi TechGuys and Gals,

Everything was as normal with my Win7 PC yesterday. Late in the afternoon I walked away from it, screen saver came on, and when I returned, the screen was black. I did a system shut down with the power button for the night.

This morning, I turned it back on. I can get to the logon page, login, and then it goes black with NO cursor. I try to get to Task Manager but no go. I F8'd so I could open in safe mode, but that went to black just the same.

The only thing I did 2 days ago was run a short .exe that was a fix for a bug in the Neat company software I use. I can only think that the screensaver caused this.

Anyhow, does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thank you!

Sunny

Last week my laptop had trouble starting up, it had a problem with atidvag.dll if I recall. I wasn't sure what to do but I got lucky and after a few attempts in managed to boot. Now however it doesn't even get to the point where it could tell me what is wrong, no Windows logo. Just straight in black screen with a cursor in the top left. F2 will take me to BIOS (if I am quick), but no other keys work. Booted onto installation media to try startup repair, no joy, rollback also no joy, tried using command line following the instructions here to force a boot into safe mode but no joy.

I am out of ideas, so any assistance would be appreciated.

A:Black Screen and Cursor. No safe mode access.

I hope you can get it going...when you do here are some options to get to safe mode

I think because of the change in bios or the way it boots up you cannot hit F8 fast enough to get safe mode.
Here is an option for a dual boot...safe mode and normal.
Safe Mode - Add to Windows Boot Manager in Windows 8

Also if you are already in windows get to msconfig then select boot and check safe mode startup.

Just a couple of ideas that might be of some use at some point.

Here is the CBS log I mentioned in the OP. Not sure which information is relevant, but I had to trim most of the document and left just the most recent stuff from the very bottom.

Another note is that upon starting in safe mode, I received a message saying that System Restore did not work, and that an unexpected error occurred while the computer was attempting the restore.

Hi,
 
I seem to be having the very common problem of a black screen with just a moving cursor. I have tried Safe Mode, Last Good Configuration, and every other option in the F8 menu, but always just the black screen.
 
I have brought it to a computer shop, where they told me to re-install everything. This is not an option now. I want to make sure that I have tried everything to get my data back, before even thinking about re-installing. 
 
I read about FRST64 and wondered how to continue, because obviously I do not understand anything about logs, and I don't know if this FRST64 can fix it on it's own, or just scans for problems. And if it just scans, then what do I do with that?
 
Some guidance would be very much appreciated.
 
Thanks.
 
Suzanne

A:Black screen - moving cursor - no safe mode

If you can't boot into Windows you can't run FRST64, so that is not an option. This problem is pretty common, unfortunately it could be caused by one of several reasons, hardware (ex. RAM), software (windows or driver/s), or an infection. Just to set your mind at ease, you can use a program like Ubuntu to recover your data.  To do this use the instructions below. Please download Ubuntu, you will need to burn this to a CD in order to make a bootable disc.   To burn a ISO file to a CD or DVD please downlaod ImgBurn and install it. Insert blank CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.  Click on the Browse for a file icon:  Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button. Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable CD.  Please note:  In order to boot from this disc you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS to make the CD/DVD-ROM the first device in the boot order, and the hdd the second device. At HowToGeek there is a good tutorial for using Ubuntu to recover data from a hdd. What is the Make and model of this computer? One thing which we can do is to do a repair installation of Windows 7.  ***Edit:  Please excuse the duplicated instructions for burning a disc.  Both set of instructions contain this information.*** Instructions for a Windows 7 Repair installation. A Windows 7 Repair Installation will require a installation disc. If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a free legal ISO image of Windows 7 SP1 at  Windows 7 Forums.  This image is hosted by the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  This is a genuine untouched image which is safe to download.   Attention:  If you do have a Windows installation disc skip Part A and go to Part B, Step 1b.  Part A, Steps 1a - 6a The ISO image will need to be burned to a DVD in order to create a bootable installation disc. 1a)  To burn a ISO file to a DVD please download ImgBurn and install it. 2a)  Insert a blank DVD into your CD/DVD drive tray, and then close the tray. 3a)  Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.  4a)  Click on the Browse for a file icon:  5a)  Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button. 6a)  Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable DVD.   Please note:  In order to boot from this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.  Part B, Steps 1b - 10b 1b)  Place the installation disc in the tray of the CD/DVD drive, close the tray and restart the computer. 2b)  You will be prompted to press any key to start the installation, I find the space bar handy. At this point the setup process will load files, this will take several minutes. 3b)  You will now need to choose the  Language, Time, currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use. After this is done click on Next.  4b)  Click on the Repair your computer link at the bottom-left of the Install Windows window. This link will begin the Windows 7 System Recovery Options.  5b)  System Recovery Options will now search your hard drive(s) for any Windows 7 installations.  This will take several minutes. No participation is required on your part at this time, wait till it has finished and the next window opens.  6b)  Choose the Windows 7 installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on, then click on Next  7b)  Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.  ...

Hi Guys

I have looked at the forums for any previous probs like this but maybe i can't see the woods for ther trees??

I have a laptop, which was working fine. It now wont boot. I get the options to Boot to last Know configuration - this desn't work, just brings me back to same page.
Boot into Safe MOde With Networking or Safe mode - these two get a little further. A list of drivers being installed appears, but then it sticks and does nothing!!

System restore does not work

Sometimes a blue screen pops up With a *** STOP error message and then it sticks on that.

ANy suggestions about where to start with this......i have a hammer and a blowtorch if that will help

Thanks for any help
Neil
 

A:Laptop Boots to a blue screen OR sticks before Safe Mode

Be sure to let it stay on the driver screen when loading in Safe Mode for a couple of minutes at least, before giving up.

When you get the Blue Screen, note the Stop message parameters, and especially the driver file if mentioned.

Do you have an XP CD that can be used for a reinstall?

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

Firstly I'm on Win Over the last few weeks I've works on Screen with Cursor startup, mode Safe Black noticed that after starting up my laptop and logging in just fine the Black Screen with Cursor on startup, Safe mode works screen would go black for a couple of seconds-- my cursor would appear and I could move it around but the screen would be black After seconds or so the Win GUI would load just fine and there I would be I restarted my PC at AM this morning and it did the same All I did at that point was send an e-mail via Gmail and shut it down again At PM I went to startup my PC and everything went as usual except the PC never left that black screen with the responsive cursor I searched here and found that problem many times but with one difference-- my PC starts fine in Safe Mode I used Advanced System Care to fix some registry errors and am currently running a Malwarebytes full scan It might be worth noting that I recently installed Batman Arkham Asylum and as it was frequently crashing followed some advice to enable everything at startup which I did fixing my game problem That was around the time the black screen first started showing up and I assumed it was a result of more things taking place during Windows startup Thanks in advance

Cursor. Black With safe Screen Flashing Cannot access ALT DEL function in which my computer rebooted Showed the HP screen and immediately showed the black screen with a flashing cursor Again no mouse cursor was available I performed a diagnostics check in which the CPU HDD etc checked out restored BIOS to factory settings even placing the HDD as priority I inserted the Windows recovery disk and attempted a start up repair and a restore point with no favorable results Through the recovery disks command prompt I accessed all my music and documents so Black Screen With Flashing Cursor. Cannot access safe mode. I assume the hard drive is still functioning I'm thinking as a last resort of performing a repartitioning of my hard drive and performing a clean install of Windows Any ideas on what I can do to solve this problem Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you Anthony

I have been going crazy with these types of issues. Windows 7 boots to a black screen with a mouse cursor that I can move.  However I cannot boot into windows normally or in safe mode .  Things I have tried that have been unsuccessful are.
 

Sytem repair from OS disk
System restore (no restore points)
ChkDsk
Virus scans from Hirems boot disk
Fix Boot Fix MBR
Last known Good Configuration
Command prompt from os disk and checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon  Shell value = Explorer.exe  and userinit value = C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe
Mawarebytes PE bootdisk 
I'm sure I'm missing other things I have tried.   The only time I have been able to resolve these without reimaging is when there was a restore point.  I really need to figure out what I'm not doing before I end up losing it haha.  
 
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello,
 
My Father was watching a video and since then the only thing on his laptop is a black screen with a white cursor. Pressing control alt delete brings you to the usual screen where you have options to start task manager, restart/shut down the computer. Starting the task manager simply brings you back to the black screen with the white cursor. Selecting to restart or shut down the computer will briefly show the desktop while it's either shutting down or restarting. Which leads me to believe that the black screen is something running, possibly related to the video that he was watching, that won't release 'focus' for lack of a better word.
 
I've tried starting the laptop in safe mode and it successfully starts in safe mode with or without networking, but immediately shuts itself down. I haven't tried safe mode with command prompt.
 
Help!!!

A:black screen with white cursor safe mode not an option

A white blinking cursor on a black screen usually means the computer is looking for an operating system to boot from, and can't find one. You say your father was watching a video on the computer. Was it a DVD? Many times, computers are set to boot from the CD/DVD player first, and if a movie or music disc is left in the CD/DVD tray, the computer will try to boot from it. And of course, it can't. Check there first.
 
If that's not the case, and he was streaming a video over the Internet, you will have to run some diagnostics on your hard drive to determine what the problem is. It could be a bad cable connecting the hard drive to the mother board, it could be corrupt/damaged system or boot files, or the hard drive may just be dead. What kind of hard drive is it? What make/model of computer? What operating system?

I have an HP desktop e9200z with Windows 7 Home Premium. I was on the internet, when my computer rebooted itself and took me to a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upperhand lefthand corner. It occurs before the welcome to windows screen. I can get into BIOS and the recovery manager, but I cannot get into safemode. I set the BIOS to the default settings by hitting f5. I also ran a repair, but it says it cannot successfully repair the system. Not sure if this matters, but I noticed this in the log

Problem Signature 07: NoOSInstalled

I tried doing a restore, but I keep getting the black screen with cursor. Is there anything I can do other than reinstalling to factory settings? I read that it could be a master boot record issue, but where in the recovery manager can i fix that? thanks!

You can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
Download and run Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3
Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
Select your USB flash drive
Click Create

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

Use Windows DVD or HDD recovery partition and boot into Recovery. Select "Windows System Restore" - choose restore point prior to commencement of cleanup.

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend's laptop has been having issues for the past week or so. Everytime it starts up, it goes to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen with the options "Launch Startup Repair" and "Start Windows Normally". However, neither of these options work, and it won't boot Windows 7 but instead goes to a black screen with a movable cursor. From this screen, I can't activate anything, ctrl-alt-delete does nothing. I've read through forums and have tried many solutions, but haven't had any luck and can't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas or solutions?
Here's what I've tried so far: booting from windows 7 install disk, booting from a system repair disk, booting from AVG recovery disk, booting from USB windows 7 install, safe mode, etc. The laptop is an ASUS U56E, is only a few months old, and has Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installed. The processor is an Intel i5.

Thanks!
Rachel

If you were able to get into Safe Mode run CHKDSK with auto fix on or /f . If you get into windows and all is OK, still run Sfc /scannow.

Hey all To jump to the point my computer XP is booting to a black screen No cursor nothing It goes through boot and post screens shows windows loading and then nothing I ve tried safe mode w and w o networking and it does the same thing Keeps hanging up I m fairly certain my hard drive failed but I m not sure Hoping someone can verify this The drive is about or years old probably not In light of this I tried loading windows from disc and it went through the loading scene and then it went to a colorful backdrop and hung again I m not No black XP - to screen cursor boots sure how booting from disc works if it was loading it to the drive or what if it was then it seems simple that the drive failed and I need a new one correct If thats NOT how it works ie strictly booting up from disc then that would indicate a hardware issue Possibly power Of note not sure if this is XP boots to black screen - No cursor related but a different drive has been randomly disappearing It just stops being recognized and all the files programs go quot missing quot cannot locate source E Would this indicate that maybe it is a power issue Thanks for any and all help Let me know if you need any additional information and i ll try to provide what I can nbsp

A:XP boots to black screen - No cursor

Do you have a desktop computer, or a laptop computer?

What's the make and model# of your PC?

Sounds like the drive could be failing, but more information is needed to determine if that's the case.

I have an inspiron 1525 laptop with 2 gig ram and intel core 2 duo processor. It came with Vista 32 bit but I upgraded in January to Win 7 64 bit. Over the summer I had a fatal error that had me wipe the hard drive and reinstall windows.

It was working fine, but now it will only boot to a black screen with cursor in the middle that I can move. I can't get into any desktop options. Booting to safe mode will only go to same black screen. If I try to get to boot options it asks to boot to Windows Normally or Windows Repair...both options go to a blank screen with cursor.

I tried to boot using a boot disk, but it goes to black screen/cursor. Tried using the Win 7 install disck...black screen/cursor.

Any options?
Thanks!

system worked fine untill son decided the case needed a new fan, added fan using power from motherboard (mobo is ASUS P5wd2-E premium) when re-booted computer it would post then drop to black screen with curser. What I found was he also plugged power into the ez-connector, I'm not sure this would have any effect but it wasn't used as the power supply had the AT connector. I tried all the tests I knew but couldn't boot to F8, to try to do system restore, was able to boot to bios and select boot drive (cd) and tried to do a windows repair, (boot ini repair) the system sees drives, drives act as if it's cycling drive light blinks on case,did the repair but will not boot. anyone have any ideas

I'm trying to fix a friend's Toshiba Satellite laptop (Vista). Since it's not my computer I'm not sure how the problem started but when booting normally it goes as far as the initial options screen (press f2 for settings, f10 for boot options) and then goes black. It won't boot into safe mode, from a restore CD or from the recovery discs (they were burned from a recovery partition right after install, I guess it's possible that they weren't set up properly). When booting from the cd it gets past loading files to the blue loading bar, and then goes black. Any suggestions? I'm guessing it might be hardware but is there any way to troubleshoot it before taking the whole laptop in? I'm assuming it's not the HDD because it won't even boot from the CD.
 

A:Vista Black Screen (no safe mode or boot from disc)

Have you tried using the screen toggle? Most laptops are able to toggle the screen to an external monitor. Normally hold down the Fn key and hit F5 or F8 or something like that. When it boots it may be trying to switch it to an external monitor.

hi try this
Restore the PC to its original condition with the HP Recovery Manager if Windows Vista is not accessible
If the PC cannot launch into Windows, it may still be possible to use the HP Recovery Manager on the hard drive to restore the computer to its original operating condition by first pressing the Power button to start the PC, and then pressing the F11 key to start the HP Recovery Manager. NOTE: Depending on the BIOS version, your computer may display multiple prompts during startup including F11 to start System Recovery. Pressing the F11 key on a computer with an HP factory image will start System Recovery even if the prompt is not displayed

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!

You can also view this Sticky from TSF forum on using Factory Media for Recovery at: Tech Support Forum - Announcements in Forum : Microsoft Support

Finally, allow plenty of time to perform these procedures; typically it is several days to go through any or all of these. Even for me it will ta... Read more

Alright so, a few days ago my brother used my computer and clicked on one of those msn viruses. I downloaded the msn virus removal program and ran it, and my computer seemed to be back to its good old ways. However, recently vista has just started breaking down. First of all the computer would'nt boot into normal mode and i would get an error message saying 'an UNsuported change has been made to windows' or something of the sort. I ran vista in safe mode and ran multiple virus scanners. I removed a large amount of trojans and then when i tried restarting vista, as it got into the log in screen the computer blue screens. So here i am, back in safe mode (network enabled). Completely dumbfouded.

Would appreciate help!
thanks

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.

Yeah just registered with Ten Forums and all that good stuff and so commonly to a Windows with cursor? boots black 10 no screen here's my first of Windows 10 commonly boots to a black screen with no cursor? possibly many issues I shall bring to you xD I upgraded my preview Windows 10 commonly boots to a black screen with no cursor? build of Windows to the pro final version because the preview wasn't able to find additional builds and kept crapping out on standard updates All went smoothly but the first thing I noticed is that the next time I booted cold Windows would get past the quot starting windows quot screen and play the startup sound However the logon interface never appeared or the cursor All that was displayed was a solid black screen I hard reset by holding down the power button and tried it again which gave me the same thing Again hard reset This still commonly happens along with my CMOS date time settings apparently being wiped after such reset Sometimes the cursor appears but mostly it doesn't Usually after trying enough times it'll pull through or by starting it after selecting a recovery option from F quot Enable low resolution video quot I know worked before but it didn't give me low res display Not that I'm complaining It could likely be because I installed over the preview and in-place installations typically have issues I'm also running a program to provide titlebars with aero styled glass transparency and my graphics driver is up to date Any thoughts

Hello. Is 64 bit home version. No restore points available. Boots this way in every mode. Last known good does same thing.
 
System was brought to me like this. I ran a test on the HD (A WD) it failed their test and said it needed replaced. I bought new one, did a drive copy (it completed copy with a few errors) and I am getting the same thing with the new HD in.
 
Ctrl-alt-del does nothing, nor does hitting shift to get onscreen keyboard (the cursor changes for a second, then back to arrow)
 
Any advice?
 
Thanks!

Ctrl-alt-del does nothing, nor does hitting shift to get onscreen keyboard

 
Is this a tablet, a laptop or a desktop ?
 
In general, the black screen with the blinking cursor suggests that the system cannot find a bootable drive. In general, pressing 'F8' at the BIOS screen if a computer is doing this will bring up a drive selection screen, select the hard drive that has Windows on it, press 'Enter' and, again generally, it will go and boot.
 
If the black screen is occurring later in the process, say after the 'Starting Windows' screen appears, this isn't the cure.

Boot off of the XP CD Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Drive Fitness Test in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn and boot off of the newly created CD and run the short and extended tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.

Even in safe mode I have some problems. Internet explorer restarts or windows explorer.

I have already cleaned out the inside of my computer and the fan .

I have already formatted the C drive and re-installed Vista. What can the problem be?

Also it doesn't allow me to install Updates, it usually gets an error message saying something like Internet Module or Host was closed. When I start Windows normally I usually hear the computer loading a lot, especially if I try to install a program or watch a video. And it crashes when I'm doing too much activity or sometimes just when im not doing anything

My computer is 3 years old. I have 3 Primary drives , from what I saw , the C D and E. And I have 1 external hard drive which I have turned off.

runtaylor,

wonderful start to the day!

all is not lost.

in all that info about your system, I missed whether it is a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Win7 and the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Why is that important?

I would like for you to go to a Win 7 system which works and which also has a 32 bit verion installed, if you have the 32 bit version installed--or to go to a 64 bit system if that is what is installed.

Now you will make a System Repair Disc on that system and here is how:
CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button
=========================================
=========================================

If you have a Win 7 DVD, then you can skip that step.

What you are going to do is:
Boot up from one or the other.
Get to the System Repair options
Run a System Restore NOT!!! a System Repair.

We've got tutorials for both cases, but let me see if I can find a write-up which may get you there easier:

here's one of the two:
SYSTEM RECOVERY / REPAIR OPTIONS
USING YOUR SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

Insert Win 7 SYSTEM REPAIR DISC into the optical reader.

Shutdown your computer.
Power up your computer.

A dialog window will appear:
Select your Language Preference | NEXT button

Select desired operating system if more than 1 shown |
Use recovery tools... Radio button | NEXT button

Select the desired repair option
Startup Repair
System Restore
System Image Recovery
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Command Prompt

===============================
===============================
For Startup Repair
1) Click on System Repair and run system repair
2) Reboot
3) Repeat this sequence 3 times



===============================
===============================
For System Restore
Choose a different restore point radio button | NEXT
Show more restore points checkbox (lower left) |
Highlight the desired restore point |
Scan for affected programs (lower right) |
When you find a usable restore point, then CLOSE | NEXT |
YES | Your computer will restart to finish the restore |
After the computer has restarted, FINISH
===============================
===============================
To restore your computer using an image you created using Win 7 Backup
Click on System Image Recovery

===============================
===============================
NOTE:
You may need to tell your computer to boot from the optical drive.
Power Up your computer.
Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn?t offer this capability, try tapping the F2 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.
===============================
===============================

and here is the other

USING SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS USING A WIN 7 DVD

1) Insert Win 7 DVD into optical reader.
2) Shutdown computer.
3) Boot up computer from the Win 7 DVD
If your computer doesn?t boot from the optical drive, then
Immediately after pushing your Power ON button,
Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn?t offer this capability, then try tapping F2 key instead of the F12 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.

Go ahead and boot it with the ultimate cd disk. Then remove the disk and reboot, tapping the F8 key while booting to open the safe mode. If that opens correctly,
use the arrow keys to move up to last known good configuration. click enter then let the computer do its thing.

Hi all,
 
Just joined the forum. I have a friends acer laptop with win7 on it and it only boots to a black screen with a movable cursor in both normal and safe mode. I've tried restoring to either of two available restore points from the last 3 days and after restoring it does the same thing. I've tried choosing an earlier restore point from 2 weeks ago but it craps out with an error about google toolbar. I've scanned the hard drive in an external docking station with MSE and Malwarebytes and nothing is found. There have been 2 windows updates in the past week, one being yesterday and the other on Apr 30th. Wondering if one of those might have caused a problem and if so how do I go about uninstalling them? Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated as I've googled myself into a tizzy trying to fix it.
 
Thanks...

@ ichito: WELCOME TO Tech Support Forums
Please start your own (new) thread and provide the details there. It becomes too complicated to help two people in the one thread. Someone will assist you there.

@ Skurten:
You said: "Everything i've tried so far i've just managed to google and follow step by step instructions"
You have done very well, but why did you revert the registry back to 2003? Why did you not revert to the last (most recent) restore point? I am guessing that is what you want/need to do now.

It may help if you provide details of exactly what you did to "roll back my windows registry to 2003". That will provide a bit of background info.

Do you know where to find the system restore points and their contained registry backups?
Can you then "roll back" or do an "off-line system restore" using the UBCD?

Please clarify/confirm that you are using UBCD (Current release: 4.1.1) and not UBCD4Win (Ultimate Boot CD for Windows Version 3.50 Released: 4/21/09) ... ? Please provide details of exactly what you are using.

A:Windows boots into black screen with cursor after installing ubuntu

Your Windows 7 partition can be having inconsistencies go back to the startup repair as you did before.

Reboot or turn on the machine. As soon as you see your machine's name logo splash screen keep tapping F8. Go to "Advanced Options" or "Repair Computer" Select your language then "Repair Your Computer" An installation of Windows should be detected after that select "Next"

If that does not fix the issue. Do the same as before go to Next again go to command prompt type in

Code:

CHKDSK C: /R

Also you do not need Wine to access Windows files Ubuntu can access all Windows partitions and files via the Ubuntu GUI alone. Wine is used to install and run some Windows programs mainly games written for Windows but experimental at best.

Start up repair says there is no issue.

I checked this in command prompt btw.This mite be helpful how my hard drive is set up acer hds come like this the patrition is split on 2 hds I feel this is the issue.

Hello. I have been researching this issue, and found a topic that began on this site, but was unresolved due to lack of responses. I have been having an issue where my laptop fails to fully boot after logging in. It shows a black screen, and the cursor is active, and I can bring up the task manager, but that's about it. I have tried once to do a system restore to a previous point, but it did not fix the issue. I have a lot of files that I still need on the computer, so that is an issue.

A:Black Screen During WIN 7 POST , Black Screen Even In Safe Mode

What other graphics adapter choices are available in BIOS setup? If you choose Switchable is there software on the Lenovo site for your model that's needed? Are you using the Display adapter software from there?

Have you tested your HD with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by a full Disk Check on a single disk partition you create?

Then work through the steps for Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums including trying an alternate install method (disk><flash stick) with new media. These steps overcome almost all install failures, so you'll be reasonably sure the problem is hardware or BIOS settings if nothing works. But don't skip any steps.

Try Clean Install Windows 10 Technical Preview to see if there's any difference with a more modern OS install. It's already a very polished OS and worth testing this.

Blue Screen - Hangs On Xp Logo Screen - No Safe Mode

Hello There, I Would Really Appreciate Any Help.

As Above, I Am Pretty Sure This Has Happened To Other People.

I Installed A New Programme Which Was Downloaded From Bit Torrent(i Am Thinking Now That It Must've Contained A Virus).

Blue Screen - Memory Dump
Rebooted And Now It Just Hangs On Windows Xp Logo Screen.

Tried To Boot Using Safe Mode But No Joy.

Also Tried To Use The Restore Disks And The Xp Disk Itself But It Would Not Boot From Those.

What Do I Do Now? I Dont Want To Format The Drive And Loose All My Files.
 

A:Blue Screen - Hangs On Xp Logo Screen - No Safe Mode

If it was unable to boot from the restore disk or XP disk, that indicates that the BIOS Boot Optios are not set to allow it to boot from the CD before the Hard Drive.

Enter the Bios at boot-up time and correct this.

A:Computer Boots to Safe Mode Screen Everytime

Without a working cd drive or a bootable external cd drive I don't know of any way this can be repaired. Do you have access to another cd drive that would fit into the laptop temporarily (borrow)? Is the BIOS set to boot from CD first in the Boot Order?

A:Solved: xp safe in safe mode fine...mormal mode blue screen

Start in Safe Mode and look in C:\Windows\Minidump for crash log files with a dmp extension, like Mini071008-01.dmp. Zip 4-5 of the latest ones and post here as a ZIP or RAR attachment. The log file contains information useful to determine what caused the error, most likely hardware.

I think this is where I should be posting this. I'm booting fine in safe mode, and it will be ok booting normal until I get to the desktop. Once I get there, I can see my desktop but it has lines across it and I'm not sure what's happening.

Okay, this is all using a computer that is property of my grandparents... My brothers sometime come here to play a game that requires a higher resolution on the monitor, so I suspect that may somehow tie into this problem.

When I restart Windows and try to run normal mode, it gets to the step right before user account selection and idles at a black screen. I also noticed that, on my monitor, the green light under the first icon (which I suppose represents an active display) goes off, opposed to how it is now (in safe mode with networking) where it's on.

I don't know why this is happening. Can anyone please help?
 

A:Solved: I'm getting a black screen after Windows (normal mode) boots!

If it's a resolution problem, does anyone know how I can change my NORMAL mode's resolution in safe mode? Maybe through the registry? I have no idea where the registry key would be at, though.
