Check your time setting on Bios page.
Try to run F8 to safemode, scan your computer or defragmented
You may have spyware or virus is keeping you away from booting.
Check your memory size, you may need to maximize your memory.

    Fix my laptop


    Do you see the cursor blinking in the black screen?
    Try booting to safe mode. Restart your computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and hit enter. Once you are inside safe mode, install RadarSync and scan your computer with it then update the outdated drivers.

    I have a Toshiba laptop with a Windows 7 operating system AND A BLACK SCREEN WITH AN ARROW(curser) ON IT


    Try running the check disk utility.

    To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
    Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

    If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

    In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

    In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

    Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor


    Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

    1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

    2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

    3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

    4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

    Good Luck!

    When i turn on my laptop i goes through the regular start up and everything then after the welcome screen it just turns black and i can't see anythign except the cursor. even turning on the laptop in safe...


    If the system will not boot into safe mode, you will most likely have to reinstall Windows. You can also try the "Last known good configuration" boot option from the F8 boot menu, I find this doesn't work most of the time, but worth a shot. Be sure to back up your data before you reinstall your operating system.

    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 .
