Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen Turned on the computer, got nothing but a blanking cursor and blank screen. Sounds like the hard drive doesn't want to boot it. Yet, was able to put Xp professional on it, now can't find my wireless modem or anything else on the laptop.

Toshiba blank screen


Sounds like a corrupted OS install. Could be caused by a number of things like: virus, failing Hard Drive, system lost power while doing an update, etc. Very hard to diagnose such a problem without being in front of it.

Will not boot...only blank screen with blinking cursor. how do I fix it


You have hard drive issues or windows files are corrupted, remove hardware and reseat it back in place, sometimes this will get the hard drive working, if this fails! set the boot order to DVD CD and try and run the recovery disc, if no change! it means the hard drive has issues and may have to be replaced.

My Acer Aspire 7730ZG had Windows Vista on it and it was fine yesterday, but when I turned on my laptop today there's nothing. Just a blank page. I have the installation disks for Windows Vista


Could you describe what exactly you are seeing when you try to turn your computer on? (blank screen, curser blinking in upper rt corner.....)
My first instinct would be to insert windows disk (while the computer is on of course) then restart and keep pressing f12 until you get a boot menu. Choose to boot from your optical drive and choose "repair"
If this doesn't help, please post a comment letting me know what happened and I will be happy to offer further advise.
Cheers...

Windows wont start up when computer is turned on, at the bottom of the screen, it just says press f for set up or tab for bios memo, then the screen will be blank with just a cursor blinking


If you are interested in solving the problem more easily and quickly. I think you can try this computer boot up suite, a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all.

System does not boot Possible Hard drive issue


Hiya. Why replace the hard drive? When you say your computer failed to boot - are you sure it wasn't booting? Maybe it did boot but your screen remained blank. It sounds more like a screen problem, quite likely the ribbon connection is loose or it could be damaged. Its a very common problem and tilting the screen moves the ribbon a fraction and it then makes the connection. Try switching on and if the screen is totally blank, no message at all, no flashing cursor then its the screen. If you wanted to be 110% sure, easiest way is to connect laptop to an external screen and test it that way. Hope this is helpful.
