Is that before or after your bios posts

if after, it could be a bad hard drive (sitting waiting to boot from it, but unable to or taking forever)

if before, well, enjoy your new laptop you get to replace this one

When I start up computer all I get is black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left hand corner...how do I fix this so it will load properly


how long have you let it try to boot when you get the _ flashing. also if you have your computer to set up from a usb drive make sure you have disconnected all usb drives and other peripherals just to be certain it's not trying to boot from an external source.

My PC will not boot up i have a black screen with a flashing cursor in top left hand corner


That cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that no OS was detected = Windows has been completely corrupted and the only thing left for you to do is to reinstall it using the Recovery disk

Just installed windows 7 with an external cd/dvd and now it will only boot with the cd/dvd attached. otherwise a black screen appears with the cursor in the top left corner.


when it boots to a flashing cursor in the top left corner and everything else it working, this means that it is NOT finding the operating system on the hard drive, many times due to boot sector issues.
Make sure you set your hard drive to main or first startup device.

Loaded mozilla and screen did not appear fully.


Right click on the bar along the bottem of the screen, and a menu should pop up, near the top of menu click cascade windows, the mozilla window should go to the top left corner of your screen. with the mouse cursor go to the bottom right hand corner of the window and an arrow should appear keep the right click button held down and drag the window diagnally towards the bottom cornner of the screen and you should then have full screen window.

Blank Screen


First thing to do is make sure you don't have any disks in the drive. It could be trying to boot from a non-bootable disk.
