Preferred Solution: Can't boot Windows XP (Standard or Safe Mode), Black Screen w/cursor then Blue 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.)

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?

I received the following error message when I attempted to restart my computer:

C0000218 Unknown Hard Error

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

I have tried to start the computer in safe mode with internet connection and after a few minutes the screen goes black. I've tried to start it using last known configuration and the screen goes black. Everything I try ~ the screen goes black.

Help!!!!
 

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!

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.  ...

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.

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

A:Black screen with cursor, safe mode works

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.

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

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?

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

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!

How did you go about doing this? Did you boot from the Win7 installation DVD disk to attempt them?

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.

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've had this problem before on a clients machine and the problem was with the "MBR" (master boot record)

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.

Hi

My PC blue screens with c000021a FATAL SYSTEM ERROR at boot. I boot any further than that.

I've tried booting with last known working config, same error occurs. My PC won't boot to safe mode, just get a list of files and nothing happens.

It was recomended to me to do a Windows XP repair but the screens described to me don't appear.

I can boot to the CD, then I can select enter to set up windows and get to the next page to accept the windows licence agreeement. But the next screen on I see is something to do with selecting a partition, rather than the screen I was told I would see.

Any ideas?

Cheers Neil

This can be a sign of a malware infection, is suggest making a bootable AV CD, boot from it and scan the entire hard drive.

After removing any malware you may have, see if it will boot, if no joy, you may have to do a repair installation of XP.

I believe the problem started when I let my lenovo boot optimizer, which I always skipped until now, run its full course.

Computer attempts to start windows but fails, gives blue screen of death and restarts automatically.

Safe mode gives the same error.

Tried all options next to safe mode to no avail.

tried Windows start up repair - can't fix the problem

tried Command prompt bootrec.exe - can't fix the problem. DISKPART says all partitions and volumes are healthy, and it seems like it is not a hardware problem.

I have a backup, but it's on Crashplan... I can't access it until I can login to crashplan. I'm about to install ubuntu, and see if I can retrieve to an old backup through Ubuntu. Any better ideas?

So, here is my story,
Yesterday I wanted to install graphics drivers form Dell website due to some problems that I had.
My laptop info: DELL_Intel Core i7-4500U CPU_RAM8GB_Windows 8.1 .
Graphics Dr.: Intel Graphics Family & AMD Radeon 8850M.
During the installation of a 'new' AMD Radeon 8867 - if I remember well - , my screen started to flash and then got black. My laptop was on with black screen and the cursor flashed. I turned it off, then back on , and it was the same story....nothing.. I pressed Shift+F8 and Nothing.
I can only access to BIOS (F2) or to BOOT MANAGER (F12)... Unfortunately no Safe Mode is an option. In fact, how is it possible to go to safe mode with a black screen on Windows 8??
I would appreciate any suggestions to fix the problem. 
Thank you!

A:Windows 7 splash screen, then black screen NO Safe Mode

sorry for bumping. it seems people get a lot of responses to their questions and i was hoping to get the same kind of response.

Bottom line is, my computer tries to load Windows (7) with the splash screen, then goes to a black screen with an arrow and stays there.

I am unable to boot to safe mode.

I am unable to do a recovery from booting from the Windows 7 Install CD

Hello all
First time poster with problem after peforming sys restore on win7 pro 64bit.
Was troubleshooting a problem w/taskbar not staying hidden, tried to restore back 24hrs to when a java update occured. Restore seemed to proceed normally, but upon restart, it boots normally to just before the login screen would appear, then the screen goes black and all that is visible is the cursor , which I can still move.
But that's as far as it gets. Trying to boot in safe mode, or repair mode ends exact same way - can't boot in to try anything
Any ideas??

A:Black screen at boot with safe mode, system restore, or repair mode

I am a computer novice and when I try and startup my computer, I get a Blue Screen which flashes briefly so I can read what it says. If I press F8 it allows me to get into safe mode with networking. The computer which is windows xp occasionally lets me reboot in regular mode but very seldom and it will usually go haywire for some reason in regular mode and shutdown when this happens. Where do I start to remedy this problem? Thanks for all responses in advance.

Hello, I had some problems with my computer that lead me to have to boot in safe mode F8 wasn't working so I changed the boot in system configuration to boot in safe mode minimal. Restarted went to boot in safe mode and it blue screened. Now I'm stuck with boot to safe mode blue screen loop. Is there anyway to change it back to boot windows normally?

Also there is no way I can see what the blue screen says as its gone in a blink of the eye.

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.

Working on this one for a friend.

Vista home sp2

It will boot into safe mode and work fine. reboot to normal and we get the login screen once clicked it will start loading into windows but goes to a black screen with the pointer showing and would give an error on loading nvcpl.dll, I have used safe mode to turn off the Nvidia control panel on startup but now just get a black screen and pointer. I can Cnt Alt Del and get to the Lock, switch user, task manager, screen.

No signs of malware or virus.

Kind of stumped on this one.

First step would be to download and install the latest video driver from the nvidia website. If that doesn't work we'll try a clean boot using msconfig.

Hi there,
I am hoping someone can help me with the BSOD. Happened last night.

Computer is Dell 9100.

I cannot enter into safe mode, have run system diagnostics for problems with blue screen - all pass. Run system diagnostics for hard drive - all pass. Cannot boot from CD upon restart.

Changed boot sequence to CDrom first, Hard drive second. This will boot up the CD and allow me to do a system recovery/repair. When I hit "R" to repair, it says there is no hard drive. SO WEIRD!

I can get into Dell Recovery using CNTRL and F11, but that will wipe my hard drive.

Anyone have any ideas about what could be going on? I am trying to preserve the hard drive.

PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you very very much

---When I booted in safe mode I got a blue screen
---I (stupidly) changed the settings so that the computer automatically booted into safe mode thinking that would change something.

Now I can't boot into windows! The computer automatically boots to safe mode and I always get a blue screen (error: 0X0000007b, 0Xf7c7B524, 0XC0000034, lots of 0's)

Question: How do I change my settings to NOT automatically boot to safe mode without accessing windows! I can't get back to MSCONFIG and know no other way to turn off the automatic safe-mode boot option.

Ughhhhh, I wish I hadn't done that! Please help me!

If you have a Windows XP installation disk, and wish to use the Recovery Console, see the following link ... (near the bottom of the page)
Problems that can occur by forcing Safe Mode using the System Configuration Utility
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...force_safemode

Otherwise, use a LIVE CD ...
Download Puppy Linux (105MB)
http://www.puppylinux.org/

When you have Puppy Linux burned to a CD, boot from the CD.
Load Puppy Linux into memory and use as a LIVE CD operating system: Do not install.
Navigate to C:\Boot.ini
Open the file: It is simply a text file, so use a text editor within Puppy Linux to open the file.
Delete the following switch: /safeboot:minimal
Save the file and close it.
Exit Puppy Linux and remove the CD.

Start your Windows system normally.

(If in any doubt, copy the content of the boot.ini file and post it here.)

Hello,

I Need Help! My laptop won't boot up. In the middle of booting, a blue screen will flash (can't even read the message because it flashes so fast), then it will take me to a black and white screen with options to choose Safe Mode, Last Known Good Config and other options. Whichever I choose, windows will start booting but process will just be the same, blue screen flashes and will take me back to option screen. I was tempted to stick in my system restore disk but I'm afraid, will I lose all my data if I do that? Please help me. Maybe you have other idea to get my computer up and running without losing anything. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!

A:Blue Screen Error-won't boot in safe mode

HelloWe will have to create a small 'fix CD' to solve this problem.Please download RC.ISO and save it somewhere you can find it.Also download MagicISO and install it.Start MagicISO. You should see a window informing you about the full version of MagicISO.In the bottom right select Try It! and the program will open.Click on File and then on Open and navigate to the RC.ISO file you downloaded. Select it, and click Open.First, we'll need to add a clean version of userinit.exe to the current RC.ISOIn the upper right pane, double click on the i386 folder.Right click in the upper right pane and select Add Files...Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select userinit.exeThen click Open to add userinit.exe to the CD image.Click File and select Save As...Name the file RCplus and save it somewhere you can find it.Next, we'll need to burn the newly created image to a disk that we can use to fix the problem.Put a blank CD-R disk in your CD burner and close the tray. If an AutoPlay window opens, close it.Click on Tools and select Burn CD/DVD with ISO.... A window will appear.Click on the little folder to the right of CD/DVD Image File then navigate to the newly created RCplus.iso Image file and click Open.In the CD/DVD Writing Speed drop-down menu choose the 8X setting.Under Format make sure that Mode 1 is selected.And finally, click on the Burn it! button to burn RCplus.iso to disk.Once the disk is burned, put it in the machine you want to fix and restart it.Boot to the CD just as you would with a Windows XP disk.At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to enter the Recovery Console.Choose the installation to be repaired by number (usually 1) and press Enter.When you are asked for the Administrator password, enter the password or leave it blank (default) and press Enter.At the C:\Windows> prompt, type the following commands pressing Enter after each one. Note: Watch the spaces.D:cd i386copy userinit.exe c:\windows\system32exitAfter putting in the third command, you should receive the message 1 file copied which will indicate that the operation succeeded.Now take out the CD and reboot your computer to normal mode. Try to log in and it should let you back in.

I have a Sony VGC VA1 running Windows XP Pro Media. When I switch on I get the blue screen saying a problem has been detected. Various error codes beginning 0x000, but these seem to change. Unable to start in safe mode and unable to recover from recovery discs. System tries and recognises the recovery disc, but ends up back at the blue screen. Please has anyone any ideas what I can try next. If so would be eternally grateful, but please bear in mind I am a complete beginner. Many thanks in advance

Problem: when restarting a Compaq Presario CQ61-411WM, the first thing you see after red Compaq logo screen is:
Windows Error Recovery:
and options of

Launch startup repair (recommended)
Start Windows normally

After choosing either option, here is what happens:
Starting Windows
Windows is loading files
the blue windows logo background screen begins to load with arrow and active circle,
another window tries to pop up then goes away (about 1/2 the size of the screen),
then the screen stays on the windows logo background screen with the cursor arrow actively moving when moving the mouse.

We have tried multiple forums on fix options, using either options of F8 to try to enter into safe mode, or resolve, or restart as last safe (or similar verbiage) results the same.
 

A:Start up blue screen with arrow, can't boot safe mode

hi,if you have windows 7 install disc or you created a repair disc then set BIOS to boot from the DVD rom drive,pop in your disc exit BIOS saving settings.when the pc starts watch for the "press any key to boot from dvd" loading files will appear on screen.select language/keyboard settings on next screen,on the following screen click on the "repair your computer" line which will take you to the System recovery options,DO NOT CLICK ON INSTALL NOW. next screen System rcovery options will search your hard drive and insllation,next select the windows 7 installation to perform the startup repair on and click on next.on this screen click on the Startup Repair line.
The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems with files that are important to the proper functioning of Windows 7.

If Startup Repair finds a problem with an important operating system file, the tool may suggest a solution of some kind that you have to confirm or may solve the problem automatically.

Whatever happens, follow the prompts as necessary and accept any changes suggested by Startup Repair.

Important Note:

If you want the Startup Repair to work properly, you must remove any flash drives or other USB storage devices, like external hard drives, from your computer before running the tool. Due to the way some computers report the storage space on USB connected drives, the Windows 7 Startup Repair may incorrectly report that it found no problems when in fact there may actually be an issue.

I powered down the PC and restarted but a black screen with a flashing cursor appeared before disappearing with the numbers lock light illuminating.
Restarted the PC and F8 into safe mode but system stalls at: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\Mup.sys

I've been having a problem for a while now when restarting my desktop
computer. When restarting, I am getting a blue screen, "a problem has been detected and winudows has been shut down to prevent damage"
Technical Information:
Stop: 0x0000007b (0xF890D528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I've been getting that message for a while now and every now and then it I wouldn't get that message and the computer boots fine. But now, I'm getting that every time.

Previously, when getting this message, I have been able to boot into safe mode. Now, I can't even get through safe mode as it hangs when trying to load Agp440.sys.

So, I'm stuck with this problem unable to figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions would be great. thanks.

FWIW: Using a malware topic of someone else...as a guide to solving issues...is probably not the way to go.

If you have malware issues, I suggest that you initiate a proper topic at the appropriate malware forum.

Greetings,
 
I have a Dell Latitude running Windows 7 x64 Enterprise that is suffering from the Black Screen of Death.  I cannot boot into SAFE MODE (or any other mode) whatsoever.  I have the drive hooked up via a SATA to USB converter and have noticed the following 3 files at the root of the C: drive:
 
bootsqm.dat
KBSERVICE.SHUTDOWN
ntuser.dat
 
I have run Combofix and Malwarebytes on the machine that the bad drive is attached to, but neither program found anything.  The KBSERVICE.SHUTDOWN file has a modified date very similar to the time that the computer first had the problem.
 
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
 
Thanks,
Andrew

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

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

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

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


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


Hi DomMartinelli,

Welcome to Seven forums.

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

http://dell.to/18xQpRy

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

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

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

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

A:Windows 7 black screen with cursor on boot up

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

My windows xp screen would turn black when i boot. It happens right before the blue welcome screen.
safe mode and safe mode with command prompt works. when i try safe mode with networking, it loads the system files but after that, there would be weird symbols and colors blinking.
i also replaced the hal.dll with the one on the windows xp cd when i got hal.dll is missing/corrupt message before. Maybe that could be the problem?
 

A:Windows XP black screen and safe mode error

Mine did this when the desktop resolution was higher than what my monitor would support. My LCD would go blank (black) and I would see nothing. The computer seemed to be running in the background however. Have you tried adjusting your video settings via Safe Mode and starting with something like 1024x768?

It may help if you let us know what type of Video Card you have, what type of monitor etc.. I notice you haven't filled out your system information in your profile.. this may be a good opportunity, as it would give a bit more information to use while we try to think of things to try.

Thanks,
