My Toshiba Satellite laptop computer won't boot Windows Vista. At startup screen goes black with exception to the cursor arrow. My V6500 Presario Notebook will power on but screen is blank no cusor, just black screen. Right before this problem the touchpad would not operate the pointer. I shut down the notebook by holding down the power button. Of course not being able to let notebook go through a normal shutdwon process. No luck with the recovery disk, just black scrren. Any help would be appreciated. I already have Regcure and run it regulary before this problem.

I have a Toshiba laptop with a Windows 7 operating system AND A BLACK SCREEN WITH AN ARROW(curser) ON IT


Try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Hi,

When the TOSHIBA splash screen is displayed or when you first turn on your computer, a boot menu prompt may be displayed for a few seconds near the bottom of the screen, indicating that a key (F2 or F12, for example) can be pressed to display a menu of boot options. The time allowed for detecting the keypress is very brief, so you'll need to be both prepared and quick.

On some models this prompt reads Press F12 for boot menu. On others, it may say Press C to boot from CD-ROM. On still others, there may be a row of colored icons representing the various boot devices (HDD, FDD, CD, LAN, PCMCIA, etc.) Press "F12" or "C" while these icons are displayed, and then use the arrow keys to move the cursor from one to another. As new models are released, the wording of these prompts may change.

Now if above steps works for you then it will start booting up from CD and then we have a shot to fix the problem you have with a simple command.

Once the computer boots up fine, go to the screen which says "Install Now". On this screen, look at the bottom left corner, you will see "repair your computer". Select this option & Choose your keyboard & language on next screen.

It will take you to the screen which will have 5 options:

Startup Repair: This option can repair the booting up problems automatically.

System restore: It startup repair doesn't works, Try this option to restore your computer to the day it was working.

Memory Optimizer: This is used to diagnose any problems with memory.

Complete PC restore: With this option, we can restore our computer to the factory settings. Performing this will result in loose of all data and software installed but it will bring everything back which you got preinstalled with your device.

Command prompt: In this option you can try some advanced command line instructions to fix the errors.

First let's try the best option "Command Prompt" to fix your problem:

>>Select "Command Prompt".

Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER.

  • If the Bootrec.exe tool runs successfully, it presents you with an installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

Cannot start windows or launch startup repair. Loads windows icon then flashes blue screen then black screen with large cursor


It might be just a software related issue, i suggest you boot into safe mode(tap F8 repeatedly during POST), if you are able to access safe mode without any issue, you can perform a system restore. This will allow the computer go back in time when the issue is not yet present. Hope this helps.

If it won't let you go to safe mode,then there's something that the BIOS(setup) or Boot Manager needs before starting the operating system(Windows Vista). You should have a Toshiba Recovery Disk which will fix this . The disk will not touch any of your current files and data,so don't worry about that.

You need your Vista disk to re-install Vista.

Windows Vista Will not load correctly


sounds like you have some corrupted files in the boot sector. 2 options.
1. using a vista dvd: let it boot from dvd and when it is loaded select the repair my computer option. once you get up and running use malwarebytes and superantispyware to remove any nasty bugs that you may have caught.

2. using your recovery partition do a system recovery this option restores your pc back to when you bought it.

Computer won't boot Windows Vista. Screen goes black with cursor arrow.


In this case you have to do the PC restore . you can do that in dell machines by shutting down the machine and when it is coming back on just HOLD DOWN THE CTRL ket and the START HITTING f11 key in this case you will lose the data which you have the on the c drive but this issue will get resolved .

Else you can try to restart in the safe mode with networking and then go to the system restore and then select the bold dates in which you have idea you system was working fine . selct the date and then do the system restore . In this case you will not lose the data but you will lose the updates which you have done after that date .

in both the cases system will work .
