My Laptop won't fully start/blacks out/won't recover


You are lucky that this issue is operating system based from what it seems, try to work the recovery option, let it be that way for hours. It will move at some point.

Did you have a AV installed? If not it is crucial to have an anti-virus software installed on PC.

If all the efforts appear fruitless, contact Samsung; it could be a hardware issue as well... although they are less frequently observed.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-s6055 laptop. I can start it up but it won't load Windows. It just goes to the Windows load screen, then to a black screen with my cursor. Also, I can't start...


The hard drive could be slightly faulty. Try this first.
To repair missing or corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

Windows 7 won't bootup, has error recovery. it loads files then nothing. screen is black.


Had that problem a few times myself.
Only way I could fix was to restore back to factory condition.
As you boot, watch bottom of screen closely.
depending on system, Should need to press F2, F10, possibly F12, might even be Del.
Most likely you didn't get restore disk, or have made one.
If you do, insert disk before boot up. System should boot to DvD.
Don't forget once restored to update.
Hope this helps

When i start my laptop it shows the dell loading screen then goes to a black screen where you can start windows normaly or go into safe mode. when you click on start windows normaly it goes to the windows...


You may need to reload windows on the hard drive. However try this first: reboot the system. Tap F8 to get to the system menu. Go to Safe mode and see if windows will load from there. If it does- try System restore to a point before the looping issue started. If it still loops, tap F12 at the Dell screen, and select the image to restore the system (reload to factory default). If you do not have that option, you will need the install media that came with your Laptop to reinstall the operating system entirely. If you do not have the drivers disk for your system- you will need to go to Support.Dell.com, enter in the service tag of your system, and download the drivers for your system.

Good luck! Also, as a reminder: Use your burner or an external hard-drive to backup your college work. Nothing makes you hate life more than having to retype a 20page paper from your edited rough draft and outline due to a system crash or virus! (personal experience. History paper.)

Press F8 continuously while starting the computer. When black screen appears eventually (right before Windows loads), choose Last Known Good Configuration.
