Hi,
the system is looking for a certain file or a command prompt.
1:) try re-installing your operating system, this will overwrite any corrupt or deleted files. ** backup important data first**
Although you should get the option to:- leave existing file system intact.
2:) if this is a recent problem, you could restore the computer ( windows XP ) to an earlier date. before the problem occured.
3:) enter the bios to ensure the computer is booting from HDD first.
Hope this helps.

Mike @ compurepair.

When I turn on my laptop pc every couple days a black screen will come up and the laptop stops processing. Why? How to fix it?


I would suspect a glitch in the MBR/software, a black screen with a white cursor in the top left, BUT, Try this , when you shut down always unplug, remove battery when you use at home connected to AC. At boot in BIOS, BOOT sequence, change to Boot from HDD first. Also remove DVD's, CD's from the DVD/CD rom drive, if the machine has boot from DVD/CD rom as a default, it will try to read the disk in the drive first, delaying a switch to second HDD boot. This is a general idea in the Boot sequence procedure: http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/change-boot-order-xp-vista/

Nothing comes up on the monitor


Hi there,
Please check if there is power to the system.
Is this a laptop or desktop?
If it's laptop see if any light turns on in the computer and or if you can connect it to an external monitor to check if the problem is the LCD display or the Video Graphics Adapter.
If it's a desktop see if there's power to the monitor and to the system.
Do you seea any message like no signal or output out of range or is the monitor totally blank?
If you can provide additional information like if it's a desktop or a laptop, when was the last time it worked if there are any indicator of power coming to the system.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi When I boot it up , the acer emblem comes up then the screen goes black with a small cursor flashing in the top left hand corner


If you are having just a blingking cursor on boot up you must check if there is a disc inside the disc tray, or kindly check as well if there is a USB flash drive plug in on your computer and if there is any please remove them while your computer boots up as your computer might boot from it and it may cause just blingking cursor.

If there is no disc or USB flash drive installed, what you can try is to boot your computer in safemode and perform a system restore. Atleast restore back your computer 2 to 3 days back before this problem happen.

To perform safemode:

- turn off computer
- press the power the botton and after 2 sec tap F8 repeteadly until you see all the safemode options
- select safemode with networking/safemode use the arrow keys to highlight it then press enter
- computer will automatically boot into safemode desktop.

To perform system restore:

- click start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore
- click next then select desired date then follow the on screen instructions
- once system restore is done it will automatically restart and boot your computer in normal mode.


Cheers . . .
