When you said your cursor freeze, does the computer still respond or the whole computer froze. If the computer froze, then it could be anything from, memory, hard drive, cpu, or mainboard. Does the keyboard works, if just the cursor freeze, try using a usb mouse.

Windows 7 is freezing upon boot (post is ok) after antivirus installation/windows updates. What could be the cause? I figure a hardware conflict, or maybe a boot sector virus. Any thoughts please?


Hello,Try booting in safe mode or try "last known good configuration". To do this press F8 before windows starts its boot process. You will have a menu with options and you then choose. Before you install and windows updates, Windows creates a restore point, therefore you can roll back the updates by booting "last known good config". From there you can see what went wrong.

Hi, sounds to me that you are having a software problem. When you boot the laptop choose the Last know good configuration option to see if that will correct the problem.

Unit wont start, gray screen then goes to a screen with options on how to start unit and then goes blank


Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

Turn on and nothing happed just freezs


Turns on boots on acer page to 75% then goes to windows XP then a blue page with some writing that's so fast I cant' read it then back to Acer page again and so the cycle continues. Tried F2 got nowhere, tried F8 last known good configuration and safe mode but neither helped. Safe mode didn't boot. Any suggestions, if I need to update BIOS how do I do that - was suggested on another site.
