That is typically an internal power supply issue. Power surges (Lightning) cause this type of behavior and a new motherboard is the only remedy. There are companies that specialize in repairing laptop motherboards. For the cost of repair you can probably buy a new one.

My aspireone notebook wont start up


do you have a flash drive connected to your notebook when you start it up. With notebooks this will stop it from continuing to the windows screen as it's trying to boot to the flash drive. Take any usb ports out and this should help. Good luck.

My toshiba laptop will now only turn on to a black screen and a white flashing cursor. I cannot put it in safemode. I cannot put it in boot menu. It goes straight to black screen with white cursor.


it sounds as though its not seeing the hard drive. Power up and press delete to get into the bios. The hard drive should be seen in the first or second screen. If its not there then you will need a new one and a new installation of windows.

Acer aspire 5920-6864 wont boot up


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try:
  • "Press F2 to Enter System Configuration Utility";
  • determine if the hard disk could be detected by the CMOS/BIOS;
  • if yes, possibly corrupt partition would need re-partition/re-format and re-installation of Vista;
  • if no, possible faulty hard drive and would require replacement.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
