Blank screen blinking curser at top left

There are times I power up, I get my first screen which is the Acer logo and set up options for bios then screen goes black like it's going to boot but screen stays black with the curser blinking at top left.It stays like that then it just shuts down fully charged or on ac power.I did finally get into bios set up,which at first it would shut off before I could do anything,then reset laptop to factory settings.Everything was going fine but then it shut off in the middle of of set up.I finally got everything set up like brand new, but it did the same thing.I did'nt reset to factory settings,I figured it was starting to be a problem and was about to throw it away out of anger but left it.Next day said what the heck I powered it up went to blank screen then what do you know it worked.Is my laptop still good?, I mean its running now but I dont know if it's on it's out or what. Please help if you can,p.s.My laptop is only 3 months old.

I would have it serviced. the biggest problem people face is waiting to fix something and the warranty is out. i would keep testing to see if it does it again. when it does, send it in and get whatever is causing it fixed. or just work your heart away and risk it crashing when you least expect it. better to be safe then sorry, the error you are telling me about seems like a motherboard or hard drive related issue

Good Luck!

Make sure you have no disc in the dvd draw and no USB attached then try again. If it still does it, go to the BIOS and set the boot order to boot from hdd first.

How can i fix a acer netbook aoa150 that appers to be d.o.a(dead on activation)


Check the dvd drive is empty as the usb sockets. Make sure the bios is set to boot from internal hdd. It won't be driver issues as long as the drivers came from acer.com.

When i turn on laptop, i get blank screen with blinking curser and can not do anything


This indicates a hard drive issue or windows files have been corrupted, try a full recovery of windows, if you have the backup disc all the better, if not power the computer, wait for acer logo press ALT key and tap F10 until it goes into recovery, if nothing happens have your hardware tested.

When you hit F2 it takes you to the BIOS menu, and that's where you should go and while in there go to Boot, and using arrow keys select the one that says IDE WDC and move it with F6 to position 1. Then press F10 and select Yes. Restart and it should work. Post back if still having trouble.

Try starting from the windows cd. Basically you want to make sure you haven't lost the Video totally. Boot the machine but go into BIOS setup before windows loads. If you can see you BIOS settings make sure the machine meets the requirements of Windows 7 as each time windows updates the system requirements increase. If it does meet these try loading Windows 7 again but choose a lower video setting or use the generic video driver.

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner


Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

Does boot up


If you are getting the underscore in the upper left corner of the screen the laptop is not froze, however it cannot find an OS (Operating system- aka windows) This leaves us with 2 possible options:
1. Your system (Bios) has changed boot priority
  • Depending on your computer you may get a prompt to press a key to change the boot order, if this is the case make sure your C: drive is selected, or Hard disk drive as it is a laptop you should only have one.
  • If you do not get a prompt for a boot priority screen you will have to enter the BIOS or system setup, this is ussaly done by pressing "Delete" or "F2" when you first boot up you will see the screen and it will tell you what key to press. Go into the bios and look for the boot priority settings and make sure your hard drive is at the top of your list
2. Your computer's hard drive has been corrupted and you may have to reinstall the OS.
