You should try starting in safe mode. Shut down the computer completely - switch of - wait a minute and then switch on...

To get into the Windows XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the Windows Advanced Options Menu . Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Once you are in safe mode you shold be able to investigate the problem.

Let me know how you get on.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Screen is blank, but the mouse cursor moving


Please let me know if this happens while the system boots or at initial stage of booting.. (Before login Screen appears). If that is the case, then you may have to repair your OS or check for any new hardware added to the system. It wouldnt be a VGA issue as it shows the cursor movin, VGA is working fine. If this is happening after login session, It could be due to explorer.exe being corrupt or some backend process capturing the screen. Try it.. Good luck.

Installed ubuntu 9.10 now can't boot XP. Black


Now that you have installed ubuntu which is linux did you make your pc able to do dual boot. It is possible you have overwriten some important files like master boot record while doing ubuntu installation. Most times blinking cursor means no hard drive or operating system. you can try poping in XP cd and try to do recovery if you have it. Also easiest would be if you could boot into safe mode and try to fix the issue by replacing missing or corrupt files.

Black screen and in the upper left corner there is a cursor theat is blinking ... and teat is all


It sounds like a problem loading the operating system. Try booting from an installation CD to see if anything comes up... if it loads from the CD, there could be a problem with your hard drive.
When it turns on, try entering the BIOS by pressing the correct key (usually DEL, F10, F12, or F2) Make sure that the boot device is set to your hard drive. If you do this and it loads with an error saying 'insert boot media' or 'boot device failed' you'll have to either try fixing your boot sector (which can get tricky, but I'll walk you through it if you really want to attempt it) or a much easier fix, reinstall the operating system.

EMachine T1840 Will Not Boot


Well the first thing is first. Usually depends on the Operating system. If it is a later version of XP or even Vista. Try to boot it from the restore cd. They will usually tell you if your going to lose important information and ask you if you would like to back up the information. Based upon that you can move forward or not move forward.

Mouse Cursor Frozen


Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting down the computer. Turn the computer back on. At beginning of the boot process press and hold the f8 button and select safe mode from the menu.

When the safe mode is done booting up, try moving the mouse around. If it works, restart the the computer under normal Windows startup procedures.
