Turn off the system. Remove the battery and AC adapter. Press the power button for 20 seconds.

Put the battery on and try to turn on. If still same problem persists. Put the AC adapter on and tun on the system.

Then try to tun on the system in safe mode by pressing F8.

If this does not help. Try checking for the diagnostic lights in the Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock LED's. This will indicate any kind of hardware issue.

Please do comment on the LED's if they are flashing in any pattern.

Try to reseat the Memory and hard drive if possible. This will resolve the issue.

Blank screen blinking underscore Toshiba laptop after startup


if you can get into the BIOS-setup, verify if your hard drive is recognised as a bootable device and set as first boot device. if the disk is not recognised, you might want to verify if the P-ATA/S-ATA controllers are enabled. if this is all the case, but the problem remains, then your hard disk is probably broken.

Need to restore to factory default but my lappy gives me a blank black screen with a blinking underscore on the top left of the screen.


There might be one step you could try to restore the system to factory specifications. When you turn the laptop on, and you see the Acer splash screen, press the Alt-F10 keys together at the same time, and this should hopefully bring the Acer eRecovery system up, provided that your computer has the built-in recovery partition. If it asks for a password, try using the default of "000000". If that doesn't work, then a password has been entered into the system, and there is no way to reset it, however there is a way to find out what the password is, however it does require the use of the Ubuntu Operating System (which is free to download, here)

BLANK SCREEN???


This new system I'm using has done something similar on a few occasions. I only had to disconnect/reconnect the plug from the back of my monitor and did the same with the Vdo card plug and everything was fine. That hasn't happened again since I put a different power cord on it.

When ready to hit enter the email address, in either edit or new entry mode, tap the top left button where it indicates "Abc". You will see a screen where choice five is "Symbols". On the first screen of "Symbols" the underscore does not appear. Right arrow your toggle button to the second screen of choices and then toggle down and over to the underscore, then tap, ok. - trevsmom

Blank screen nothing left


ok...do you have the install CD around? Slip that into the cd/dvd reader, and restart. The system should read that, and ask to reinstall your o/s. Hopefully, your data is still good on your hard drive.
