Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

How can I get my notebook back up and running. I have a black screen with a flashing cursor. What can I do about it? I have a Acer Aspire7741Z-4643 Notebook. I was in safe mode working with network. I was working in Safe Mode because it was the only mode that I could work in. And I had virus proctection on my notebook. It just shut down and would not come back up. When I try to turn it back on, It will go as far as the logo. And I get a Blank screen with a flashing cursor on the left hand side. I try to use my recovery disk. No help from that. I try using Guru no help. I have been all over the internet trying to get help with this problem. Some site you have to pay. I do not have any money right now. If I did I would pay. I can sometime go to f2. And It is seeing my hard drive. So I know that it is not my hard drive. I have done just about everything I have seem on the internet and nothing is working for me. And I saw on the internet with Acer that they do have an ongoing lawsuit. I do not care about losing my files on the hard drive, just want my laptop to work. Children need it to help with their school projects. Thank in advance.

    No I can not get it to go to safe mode at all. It was in safe mode when it went complete out. It will only go to the logo and to the black screen with the blinking cursor. I can so to the setup utility, and that is all it do. I can use my ac cord and my battery, and I still get the samething. Yeah I know that it is broke. But how can I fix it?

SOURCE: Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

SOURCE: acer 7720 will not boot

Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.

Boot into the one that says, "Safe Mode with Command Prompt"

Once it's done it will ask for an admin password (sometimes) if it does just press the enter key, unless you set the Administrator password to something else.

Once your past that.

Type:

chkdsk /r

a message will pop up (sometimes) saying something about the disk being locked, blah, blah, blah.

Just press the Y key, then enter.

Restart the computer.

Let it do it's thing ( disk check will appear)

Let me know if this solves your problem.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

Acer 5315 goes to black screen with cursor


If it's only 5 months old, then it's still under warranty. Right now, I'd advise taking it back to have it fixed instead of taking it apart to replace hardware and possibly voiding a warranty.
