Black screen & blinking line

I got the black screen & blinking cursor/line...whatever you want to call it.

nothing else will come up.....I have even tried a recovery disk from my other A55 S106....nothing will work, I just keep getting some kind of Ghost error.

Is the hard drive gone...this PC was gave to me saying that it was not fixable, all i done was run the recovery disk from the S106 & everything worked fine for 2 weeks then i had to replace a keyboard & it worked after that for a day then while it was idle, it just froze up, so i had to cut off by main power switch & ever since then alli get is the black screen.

Screen is black


If you're getting just a flashing cursor on a black screen it's probably a motherboard/video card/hard disk problem (probably motherboard).

If there's not even a flashing cursor - just a black screen - you can add a failed power unit to your list of problems.

The easiest way to check is to borrow a power unit and video card from a friend's computer. There's no need to remove your existing power unit. Simply disconnect the power cables from the motherboard and connect the spare power unit in its place.

If your computer powers up it is obviously a faulty power unit to blame. IIf there's still nothing on the screen, power down the computer and replace the video card with the spare one. If there's still nothing on the screen when you power it up then in all probability your motherboard is history
