Need help - black screen on Samsung 700A3D


Looks like the boot manager file could be damaged or a driver is missing. Use your windows disk to boot from and choose the repair option.

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in startup....it just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast


Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

The windows files are corrupted or the hard drive has issues, load cd installation disc if available, if that fails have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

My monitor does't display anything excepy the windows logo but after the windows appear it turns black and keeps on blinking


The common problem indicated by this is, a corrupt operating system and very occaisionally it is the Hard drive. but if it is the hard drive you would be unlikely to see the windows logo. Try and do a restore by using the facilities available under the F8 button on boot up. You can do a system repair or a system restore- I would try the system Repair first. Good luck.

I have a Toshiba G15 laptop that crashed during system recovey ghosting. Now it will do nothing but black screen and flashing hyphen. Any clues on how to get this up and running So I can do system...


Hello, go into your BIOS, make sure the hard drive is selected to boot from. Then, look for a setting for factory reset, make sure it is also enabled. Then shut the computer off for 2 minutes. Now hold the zero button down and press Start, windows should load and then you should see the factory restore/reset window warning you that all data will be lost. Click YES, select Recovery of Factory Default, then follow the prompts to get windows installed. Hope this helps.

Second solution:

Restart windows if the Factory reset does not work. Before you see the BIOS or windows logo, press several times on F8 till you see a black screen with a few lines of information. Click Last Known Good Config and then Enter.

Last Solution:

Restart Windows, press F8 several times before you see any writing or logos, once you see the black screen with a few white lines of information, press Repair my windows. If you get the windows could not fix this problem, select try another method, it should take you to another screen, select US, then user name, put in password if you have one, then select Restore.

Good luck

While you are trying to boot up, before the Windows logo comes up, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Then try to use the option "Last known good configuration". If that one does not work, try to go to the safe mode option

Startup logo appears then it goes to a black screen and blinks


You should try booting into safe mode. Press the F8 key before the windows logo and choose safe mode without network support. If windows loads run a checkdisk by right clicking on the c drive, left click on properties and then select the tools tab. From there you can run a disk test to check for errors. If you get that far then reboot and see if it starts normally. If not try F8 again and try selecting restore the last known working condition. This will restore your settings from the last time it worked. If you can’t get to the F8 screen get back with me and I will try a few more drastic solutions. 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.

Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot


Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

Laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes


basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor
