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.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Hello,

Your computer's operating system just crashes down. What you can do is to do a start up repair. You need the operating system discs which came with your computer during the time when you bought it. It says windows 7 installation/operating system.

Here's what you need to do.

1. Insert the windows 7 operating system disc in the dvd drive.
2. Restart the computer. It will bring you to a page which will ask you to press any key. Just press any key to boot to the installation cd.
3. A blue screen will appear and it will bring you to the page which has the option to install or to repair. Select repair.
4. Then follow the on-screen instructions and finish the process until it restarts.
5. If it does not fix the problem, you have to do a complete/clean reinstallation.

I am providing you a full tutorial on how to do it. Click on the link below so that you will be directed to the link.

Windows XP will not boot up. After Asus start-up screen, screen goes black with blinking cursor.


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk and an external cd unit.

System will not boot after installing lite on dvd burner


If you have an external drive connected to your computer, check in CMOS or BIOS settings. Your hard drive should always be at the first list of bootable devices.

If you still receive the same boot up problem, try to boot with your Windows installation CD. Go to Recovery Console and in the command prompt, type:

fixboot (then press enter)
fixmbr (then press enter)
bootcfg /rebuild (then press enter)

Problem in booting then only mouse pointer display on the screen


Sounds like you messed it up well!

Suggest you cut your losses and just reinstall the system afresh
but first try booting from the install DVD and going through the process until you reach the options to install or repair
Select Repair and let the DVD try and fix it

With Acer I think you press F11 or F12 when booting to get the one time boot choice.
When you have it just select the DVD player the disc is in and let it do its thing
