Could it be the Boot Virus? I had the same issues. My co-worker was able to find the virus, which Norton could not. My PC is now running normal.

how long have you let it try to boot when you get the _ flashing. also if you have your computer to set up from a usb drive make sure you have disconnected all usb drives and other peripherals just to be certain it's not trying to boot from an external source.

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

Screen is black and only shows cursor blinking in upper left hand corner. Keyboard not responding. Changed the keyboard 3 times.


Start the computer up and repeadetly keep pressing DELETE to access BIOS menu, Once BIOS menu is aquired make sure that BIOS can see your main harddrive, If that checks out then you may need to set your booting device order to boot the harddrive that contains your Operating System. If that still does not work then you may have a bad motherboard.

Black screen, blinking cursor in top left hand corner


Could be a number of issues, incl unseated processor or a faulty hard drive. First off I would remove mains & battery, remove covers from underneath and reseat any memory or processors you can find - by reseat I mean just take out and put back.If this fails, I would look to price up a new hard drive before condemning the machine.

Computer displays black screen with blinking cursor


Its seems its not booting correctly. Just Insert Windows CD and fix the windows. Another solution is to press (I think) F1 or F11 or F12 (depending on the model) when booting the machine. It will take you to recovery mode. Use it to restore the boot section ONLY.
