Sounds like a hard drive or OS failure. If you can run diags on the hard drive, if unavailable or pass, try reinstalling Linux

Cursor stuck


Something might be corrupted, like OS or application. There are too many variables, but try booting into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot and using System Restore. There you can choose a date to roll back prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Plus you can uninstall any programs that may have caused the problem.

Screen is blank, but the mouse cursor moving


Please let me know if this happens while the system boots or at initial stage of booting.. (Before login Screen appears). If that is the case, then you may have to repair your OS or check for any new hardware added to the system. It wouldnt be a VGA issue as it shows the cursor movin, VGA is working fine. If this is happening after login session, It could be due to explorer.exe being corrupt or some backend process capturing the screen. Try it.. Good luck.

Blank screen appears on the startup with only cursor on it


The Acer Recovery CDs do not set the Boot flag on the hard drive. I had to manually set the boot flag to on using GPARTED Live. After restarting using the GPARTED CD, you can manage the flags under the partition drop down and click on the Boot flag. After exiting GPARTED, I rebooted the laptop and no more black screen....fixed!!
I hope this helps others.

Screen goes blank at start up


Its failing to go through the full boot process. Try pressing F8 on boot until the boot option screen comes up and then select safe mode. Follow this though until you are given the option of using system restore instead of safe mode. take that option by clicking on the NO button. Restore the machine to a date some time a few days previous to the fault developing.

If that fails then put in any OS disc and boot from it. select R at the first options screen, follow it through and then select the C drive option. Just hit enter when asked for admin password.

now type chkdsk /r (copy and paste this to be sure). let it run and then reboot and see what happens
