Hi all you need to do is insert the windows CD and whilst booting up it will give you an option to recover windows files only if the cd recognizes a damaged OS, If not then you will have to go through the console which is a more technical method.

Dell latitue D610 stuck on black screen with a blinking cursore.. help?


First, try and boot into safe mode by powering off your computer then powering it back on and tapping the f8 key, after that you should see safe mode and other options below it, click the first option which is safe mode, then go into your start menu and go to your system restore which in Windows 7 and Vista is located in accessories and then system tools, then choose a restore point earlier than the date you are on. This is a temporary fix and you will need to get a virus removal done asap. Hope this helps.

My hp g61 will only display a blank/black screen with the cursor after it has finish booting


That cursor is the way in which the BIOS of the laptop is telling you that Windows is completely corrupted and unbootable. You will need to reinstall it so use the recovery cd that came with the laptop.

You have errors in the boot section, not allowing any of the GUI's to run.
When the system starts press F8 and when you get the menu select Recovery.
That will fix it.

Computer displays black screen with blinking cursor


Its seems its not booting correctly. Just Insert Windows CD and fix the windows. Another solution is to press (I think) F1 or F11 or F12 (depending on the model) when booting the machine. It will take you to recovery mode. Use it to restore the boot section ONLY.

Black screen


Sounds like display problems if you are getting past the Windows splash screen. Try booting into VGA mode by pressing F8 when the computer is booting just after the POST screen. If it works you need to update your graphics drivers.
