You may have a RAM problem. Try reseating the RAM modules, if this does not fix your problem, remove the RAM modules and take then to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
start your computer keep pushin f2 now youll see first use arrow keys go to were it says change reboot to f12 then restart your computer then it be set on a f12 press f12 then it will ask to run your windows go to that one.
Tap the F8 at the time of startup and get to advanced boot options. Select safemode with the arrow keys on keyboard and tap enter. Try to login. If yes, try a system restore. If no, try last known good configuration. If that also is not helping, then try an OS reinstallation.
Power drain the computer by removing the battery and power adapter and press the power button for 1 minute. then insert back in the battery also the adapter to your computer and start the computer.
If the solution won't work
, try using flash light on the monitor,if you can see anything on your screen, possible backlight is the problem, however to isolate also the issue you may use an external monitor to check if you can have a video using other monitor and if not? you may contact the tech support of your system for possible mechanical failure.
Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
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.
