Remove all other connected devices beside the keyboard and mouse and remove any disc in the dvd drive then try and boot. If the system boots connect the devices back to the computer one by one till the problem duplicates, then you will know what's faulty. If the problem is still there after removing all devices besides keyboard and mouse disconnect those as well. Just an FYI these HP desktops were notorious for failing motherboards. You might give the motherboard a visual inspection for bulging or leaky capacitors.

the last 1/2 of this article will run down a list of files you need to delte to get rid of this nasty little bugger. You can also download various tools to remove it, but it is dependent on your comfort level. if you are comfortable searching for files and changing a couple of registry keys, then by all means, manually is the way to go.

Why a black screen on xps l701x w7 i7 1.73


Black screen - no flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - no picture at all, i.e. the initial Dell start-up screen doesn't show up either:
- LCD is dead or isn't getting a signal - not an easy fix; or
- the LCD isn't being sent a signal - holding down the function [Fn] key and press display Function key to toggle through its settings (LCD panel only, Rear VGA output only, both LCD and VGA output)

Black screen - flashing white cursor in the upper left corner - the screen goes black after the windows loading screens come up but before the windows login screen comes up - it is probably a windows video driver problem. Try starting in Windows Safe Mode with VGA. Press [F8] after the Dell startup screen disappears to access the windows startup menu

When I push the power button, the main dell start up screen comes on followed by a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. It uses Windows 7


Remove any CD's or USB drives 1st.


Sound like its trying to load and can't find hard drive, CD, or USB device. You need to go into BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key to press during boot. Make internal hard drive first. Save and restart. Reseat hard drive if it does not show up in BIOS.

Acer desktop with black screen and line blinking


I'm thinking from what you describe that you are just looking at the cursor blinking in the upper left corner of the screen.
You haven't said what you did or what you are trying to do, but I suggest you turn the computer off (just push the power button in for about 7 seconds) and then restart it after about 15 seconds. If it doesn't start, go through the process again but this time, after you turn it on, tap on the F8 key. Like tap---tap---tap and keep doing that until you get a black screen with a white menu on it. Use your arrow keys to select "repair your computer" that you will see if you are using windows 7.

This should repair you startup problem.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

Black screen with blinking cursor upon start up


You don't say what Windows are you using.
Anyways, it seems like you have a corrupted BOOT problem.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can insert your Windows installation CD, and choose the "Repair my pc" option.
Windows will do it automatically fro you, and you'll be up and running in a couple of minutes.

My monitor has a black screen with a cursor blinking in the upper left hand corner; what is the issue?


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.
