This new system I'm using has done something similar on a few occasions. I only had to disconnect/reconnect the plug from the back of my monitor and did the same with the Vdo card plug and everything was fine. That hasn't happened again since I put a different power cord on it.

When starting up laptop all i get is the vaio logo then a blank screen with a blinking underscore in the top left corner


Try rebooting and pressing F8 when it starts until after the Vaio logo - this should allow you to attempt to boot into safe mode (without networking for now).

When in safe mode - open a command prompt by pressing the windows key on your keyboard and R.
Now type - cmd - (not the - )

A black box comes up so type - chkdsk /f - then answer Y - press enter and close the window.

Restart the system and see if it boots into Windows.

Hope this helps - good luck.

My Dell Dimension begins to boot then sits there as if asleep


It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.

How old is the computer?

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

I have an acer aspire laptop and everytime i turn it on it comes up with a black screen and a flashing white underscore in the top left hand corner is there a way to fix this?


White underscores rock. They let you enter your BIOS password and stuff. Your system has achieved Zen and you're unhappy with that? You better clear up what you wish it would do for you.

Some USB devices seem to cause this problem. I've had it myself. USB devices when hooked up cause the computer to freeze as it hard for USB drivers to be loaded outside of windows. Try updating you windows thru windows update though even updated I still run into the problem sometimes. If updating dosen't work you need to keep the drive unhooked while booting then hook up in windows.

Screen goes blank


Does it flicker or just go black with the light flashing? Does it go back on again by itself? As of now, I suspect the video card is at fault without further details about the problem. Let me know

Is your HDD LED flashing? -Try pressing F8 on startup to show the boot menu option of your OS if it is Windows. If it does appear use Safe Mode first. If not successful try re-installing your OS.
