Asus laptop won't turn on beyond windows start up screen

Powers up, Starting Windows screen displays, then goes to a black screen with the cursor. If I shut it down with the power key, then start it up again, I get the option to repair windows, but it says it can't fix the problem. Tried restoring to an earlier time, haven't tried restoring to factory default as I don't really want to lose everything.

SOURCE: Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

SOURCE: hp laptop keeps restarting

If the laptop is not popping up any windows before it shuts down it could be the built in heat protection, you can see if your fan has a lot of dust by turning off the laptop off and then blowing into the area where it pulls in air. If it is popping up a window before it shuts down disconnect it from the internet and see if it does the same thing, if it stays on while discod from the internet then run your antivirus if possibl.

The main drive (C) being too full is an indicator that's your problem. Windows reserves space on your drive called a 'swap' file. It effectively takes hard drive space and uses it in lieu of RAM if you don't have enough available RAM to run programs.

If the computer doesn't have enough hard drive space to create the swap file then it won't boot up, as it will interpret the lack of available space as a failure to install the file and then try to reboot.

Luckily it doesn't install one when you're in safe mode. Try going into safe mode and restoring some of your hard driver space, as well as performing a cleanup and defragmentation of your hard drive, and chances are it will boot up.

As an alternative you might think about getting an external hard drive and using that for any new programs/music/videos/etc.

Why a black screen on xps l701x w7 i7 1.73


Black screen - no flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - no picture at all, i.e. the initial Dell start-up screen doesn't show up either:
- LCD is dead or isn't getting a signal - not an easy fix; or
- the LCD isn't being sent a signal - holding down the function [Fn] key and press display Function key to toggle through its settings (LCD panel only, Rear VGA output only, both LCD and VGA output)

Black screen - flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - the screen goes black after the windows loading screens come up but before the windows login screen comes up - it is probably a windows video driver problem. Try starting in Windows Safe Mode with VGA. Press [F8] after the Dell startup screen disappears to access the windows startup menu

Asus eee pc turns on, screen goes blank


If you see the system screen and the cursor, the monitor is fine. You likely either have had your operating system corrupted (I dont know if your EEE PC has Windows 7 or a Linux distribution) or it's possible your hard drive died....but i would try the OS first.


NOTE....do you have a backup of the data??? because reinstalling your operating system will format and erase your data. So if you dont have a backup, you may want to take out the hard drive and plug it into another machine and see if you can make a backup copy of the data first

After that, you choose to boot from your Operating System Disk (Windows 7 disk) follow the prompts to format and reinstall your Windows.

Oresario laptop starts but goes to black screen with cursor


Windows is not starting. Try to start in safe mode and if you can, do a system restore back to when it was working.
If you can't do this, then you'll need to insert the system disk and boot from it and choose the option to repair your computer.
I suspect that you have corrupt Windows files or a corrupt registry. Repairing it with the system disk should solve the problem. Either that, or you will have to do a reinstallation.

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.

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.
