Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Lost cursor I have a friend staying with me who is a complete novice with computers. He is using Vista and managed to not only cause himself (and me) a lot of problems, but also to make his cursor completely disappear. I am not a Vista user but have managed to find out how to put right his problems but am unable to do so as he has no cursor. Can you help. Audrey.

You can always contact Acer as they are very nice about helping you retrieve the recovery/repair discs if they did not come with the laptop just by providing them with you model and serial number off the unit. I recently worked on another Acer that had this same problem and the hard drive was bad. Acer sent a replacement hard drive and it was very easy to swap out as they provide detail instructions on how to put the new one in.

Black screen on boot up on acer 7540


If this happens when the computer should be loading Windows 7 or Vista and you are able to see/move the mouse cursor, wait awhile and try hitting ctrl-alt-delete > Task Manager > File > New Task > type in "explorer" without the quotations and then should hopefully load your desktop.
If this does not work, you will need to run the Windows Recovery Console. You can do this by putting in the recovery/install disc that was hopefully given to you when you bought the computer and using one of the Repair options.
If your laptop didn't come with this disc or it was lost, you can create your own: For Vista
For Windows 7

It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.

Hi,
If he did an upgrade on the system then your files should be there and intact, if he did a complete instalation the your file are all gone as a new(complete) instalation wil format the harddrive and will delete everything on the HDD.
He could have the option to save your file first befor the new instalation.

If you have the original Vista DVD that came with your computer, try running startup repair on your computer using the instructions here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html
If startup repair doesn't work, make sure you have not modified system files such as authui.dll. I happened to have the same problem once on my computer :)
Try running this command in command prompt using the Vista DVD... sfc /scannow

Black screen + mouse cursor, no access to explorer.


Windows needs to be reinstalled or repaired. Obtain a XP or Vista repair or installation disk (possibly borrow from a friend?) and run a repair installation. If you have another computer running windows you can make an installation disk from that computer.

Cursor (pointer) Locks Up


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mouse and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad listing and select uninstall, and then restart the pc.

In Vista start control panel>classic view, then device manager

The touchpad will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
