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.

The hard drive may be going bad. Try booting into Safe Mode to see if it boots into Windows. Then I highly recommend backing up all documents onto a flash drive or portable hard drive.

Dell Inspiron 6000 turns on but does nothing else.


From the description the hard drive has failed or windows has corrupt files. Unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, press and hold power for 2 minutes to remove residual voltage. when finished install battery and power supply now power up.

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.

It sounds like the Hard disk has failed. You might be able to replace it if you can get one from a computer swap meet. but you are likely up for a new PC.

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)

I have an acer aspire laptop and everytime i turn it on it comes up with a black screen and a flashing white underscore in the top left hand corner is there a way to fix this?


White underscores rock. They let you enter your BIOS password and stuff. Your system has achieved Zen and you're unhappy with that? You better clear up what you wish it would do for you.

Is your HDD LED flashing? -Try pressing F8 on startup to show the boot menu option of your OS if it is Windows. If it does appear use Safe Mode first. If not successful try re-installing your OS.
