SOURCE: I have an ASUS Eee PC 900. It was working fine

One more thing you could try is taking the battery out for a minute or two, because the Eee uses the atom it has a fairly complex onboard power controller that can overclock / underclock the cpu. Sometimes this gets malfunctions and locks the PC up, the quickest way to fix it is to simply pull the battery for a short while and stick it back in. You may well have already tried this, but it'll be the first port of call.

Hp pavilion 760n when turned on it makes clicking sound for a while and stops the monitor screen is blank with only a curser flashing in the top left corner.


The clicking is coming from the hard disk - it has died - so the BIOS is signalling that the OS is missing - cursor flashing in the top left corner.
Replace the hard disk and reinstall Windows.

When I turn my Toshiba A45-S151 laptop on, I first get the screen that shows the Toshiba logo and has the four icons under the logo. Usually the next screen is black, has a cursor in the top left corner,...


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is not loading because its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

Just installed windows 7 with an external cd/dvd and now it will only boot with the cd/dvd attached. otherwise a black screen appears with the cursor in the top left corner.


when it boots to a flashing cursor in the top left corner and everything else it working, this means that it is NOT finding the operating system on the hard drive, many times due to boot sector issues.
Make sure you set your hard drive to main or first startup device.

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.
