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.

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.

Windows automatically installed 19 updates, when i switched computer back on, it is just a blank screen with cursor flashing in the top left-hand corner. Any ideas, Please?


One of your updates might have gone bad. Perform a system restore to get back. Later try downloading the updates individually to spot the bad one. Please do comment if you need more info.
