SOURCE: LAPTOP WONT BOOT/START
To go through the recovery program I think you tap the F11 button as you start up. Press the power button and keep tapping F11 until the recovery program starts. I have restored my easynote L4 back to factory settings twice with this utility.
However, I get the impression you have already done this and you are experiencing what's known as the Blue Screen Of Death BSOD. Don't let this term frighten you, it doesn't mean the laptop is fried. My laptop only came with 250mb of ram, so I upgraded and installed another stick in the spare port. Had you installed any more ram yourself? As postmanfw says...need to know what was happening before you tried to restore back to factory settings.

If the diagnostics displays on the LCD screen but you get no display when Windows starts to load, it sounds like you have a video software driver problem. Try tapping the F8 key when you power on your laptop and boot in Safe mode. If it works in safe mode then you need to check you driver. You can also try connecting the laptop to an eternal monitor and see what happens.

Just had the same thing happen, and I thought it was the motherboard. Then a tech friend removed the battery and held the power button down. Then he replaced the battery, and it booted up fine! Good luck...

SOURCE: Windows XP will not boot
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 and an external cd unit.
