Bad hard drive 90 percent of all computers is HARD DRIVE related. Virus ate the boot sector, partition is damaged or scatched, to many files and the pagefile is on manual, hard drive failure due to age period, 90 percent of all computer failures is Hard Drive related.

SOURCE: 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 .

Hi,
you should try to boot your notebook from a windows CD and use the automatic repair to fix the problem. In case that doesn't work, you might need to format and reinstall windwos. In case you need to recover any data, you can use a linux-based live distro (you can find one here http://www.livecdlist.com/) to backup them on an external drive.
Hope it helped,
Franz

Hi yancart,

I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your machine and that you are getting black screen and a blinking cursor.

The issue you are experiencing can be a Hard Drive issue not being detected on the machine or possible something else is wrong with the system to be able findo ut we try doind some steps to check the machine.

>First turn the Machine OFF.

>Turn the Machine ON again then Keep on tapping F12 on your system to boot into the Boot Menu, or if it shows on the screen Press F11 Boot Menu then you should press F11 if your system uses F11 but in regular machine F12 is the Boot Menu.

>Once you have the Boot Menu Screen it should give you options from your Hard Drive to the DVD drive on your machine.

> Select you Hard Drive it should be the first on the list highlighted in Blue then press Enter on it to boot into your Hard Drive.

>Check if this will boot into your Hard Drive if it does not then, possible your Hard Drive is nto detected.

>If you can try to reseat your Hard Drvie from the machine just to see if it went loose, then try restarting the system again and see if it will boot into windows.

>If still the system will still not boot into windows then try setting the BIOS to defaults then restart the machine agian if still the issue is the same then most probably your Hard drive may need replacing.

Lenovo SL 500 not booting after startup only black screen with cursor is seen


Dude,

Most of the time, the machine booting with the blinking cursor indicates a problem with the HDD itself.

You can do the following:

1) Reseat the HDD
2) Check BIOS boot order and see if the HDD is still recognized at BIOS level
3) Load the BIOS defaults (F1 at boot, then F9, F10)
4) If the HDD is detected at BIOS, try to access Rescue and Recovery on the HDD (F11 key at boot) and try to reload Windows.
5) If problems persist, I'd highly recommend replacing the HDD!!

Startup Problem with Lenovo 3000 N200 with Vista


You would need to reinstall Vista together with the device drivers and programs to get a laptop functioning again.
You need to backup your data before you reinstall Vista but since you cannot boot up and get into Windows, you need to remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer should see this hard drive as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is OK). You can now see the various folders and files, copy your data files to a USB memory stick or burn them to a CD.
Insert the hard drive back into your laptop and then install Vista.
