    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

Dell Inspiron mini 10. The system will not boot up, after the Dell logo screen and blue bar goes away, the screen is blank and the curser is flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. F11 isn't...


That cursor indicated that the BIOS can't find an Windows installed on the hdd. Since even the recovery partition appears to be inaccessible the only thing left is to reinstall it using the recovery cd that should have come with it when you bought it If you don't have it you can order it from Dell.

Hp pavilion 760n when turned on it makes clicking sound for a while and stops the monitor screen is blank with only a curser flashing in the top left corner.


The clicking is coming from the hard disk - it has died - so the BIOS is signalling that the OS is missing - cursor flashing in the top left corner.
Replace the hard disk and reinstall Windows.

Only getting blank screen on start up with blinking curser in top right hand corner


Windows can't boot, either because it was corrupted or the hard disk died. Reinstall and if the problem returns then replace the hard disk.

Curser stuck in upper left hand corner


If you want to use a mouse with your laptop, find the preference that ignores the trackpad when the mouse is present. Go to System Preferences in the Apple menu (upper left corner of screen). Click Keyboard and Mouse" or Trackpad (depending on what you see). Un-check the option that says something like "Ignore the trackpad when the mouse is present."

(I don't see it in anymore 10.6, which won't run on your PowerBook anyway.)

Good luck!

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.
