Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner

While working on my Acer Laptop I got the blue crash screen for all of 2 seconds and then it shut down. When it restarted, on its own. I hit f2 for set up, f8 was not an available choice. I go to set up and hit restore default settings and save changes. All i get is a black screen with the curser in the top left corner blinking. What can I do?

Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

Hello,

You should take it to a qualified pc repair shop. It is possible that the MBR (master boot record) is corrupt and needs to be re-written. There are software tools that can do this. If this is beyond your comfort level, then better to take it to a shop. Your data should be fine.

Hope this helps!

Its very likely that the bad shutdown has just caused a windows file to become corrupted.
Boot to the windows CD and select "repair windows".
This should fix the problem.

My Imac crashes. 10.6.4, 2 GB ram, 2 GHz core duo. I've started with a clean install and disabled (one by one) all start up apps. Out of the clear blue, the screen will go black & I have to turn it...


When you say "screen goes black," does the computer power down, or is it still operating? Does the sleep light come on? Does it respond to the keyboard and mouse? (Example: press the power button momentarily, wait a few seconds for the "Do you really want to shut down" message to appear, even though you can't see it, then hit the return key to answer "OK," and see if it shuts down.) Does the screen go black or come out of black if you tap the computer?
While your computer is working, go to System Preferences / Desktop & Screen Saver, the Screen Saver tab, click Hot Corners, and set a corner of your screen to Put Display to Sleep. Then next time your screen goes black, mouse your way into that corner, pause a few seconds, then mouse back out and see if your screen returns.

Blank screen blinking curser at top left


i would have it serviced. the biggest problem people face is waiting to fix something and the warranty is out. i would keep testing to see if it does it again. when it does, send it in and get whatever is causing it fixed. or just work your heart away and risk it crashing when you least expect it. better to be safe then sorry, the error you are telling me about seems like a motherboard or hard drive related issue

Good Luck!
