    My screen does the same thing, but no clicking sound. Does this mean the computer is about to die?

I need a little bit more info.

Do you have a floppy disk in the floppy drive? Remove it. Do you have a CD in the CD drive? Remove it and restart your notebook.

Put your ear on the left side of the track pad. Do you hear any clicking sounds? Do the same for the right side. Do you hear any clicking sounds? If you hear any clicking sounds, and it seems to be constant, you may have a failed hard disk drive.

Try these thing and let me know what happens. Binary Bob

Blank screen curser in uper left hand corner


Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Check if it will load to windows, if not, there could be a problem with windows. Try startup repair on advanced boot options. Hope this helps.

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.
