Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook
I turn my computer on and it goes to the Acer screen. Then it turns black with the little underscore thing at the top left. It blinks for a long time but it's supposed to go away but it doesn't. Then it shows the thing that says solve problems or start windows but it dont work. Then i do the check on the computer and it says a hard disk problem is preventing windows from starting please contact your administrator or somthing like that. It is Acer Aspire 5520-5912.
The black screen with flashing cursor can be caused by the files needed to boot being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.
You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F See if that fixes the file structure and allows the system to boot. If that fails, you can try a repair installation of Windows. If that fails, the most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.
