I don't know anything about this system trying to charge you. I am just an exp computer technician who is offering my advice for free. I don't have anything to do with removing your name and information from this system. Good luck.

Dell dimension 9200 can log on then just black screen can see cursor

Try the steps mentioned below. Run it in normal mode, when you see the cursor press CTRL + ALT + DEL if the task manager pops up, go into the application tab, click on new task, type explorer.exe and hit enter. If this does not work then in safe mode update your video driver.

Thank You,

When I turn my comp on, I get the Dell screen, then a black screen with a flashin cursor. When pressing f8 for safe-mode, nothing happens. Just a black screen with flashing cursor. Please help

Unplug all external USB devices to your computer and power it back up again.

If you can start the computer, then you probably have a faulty USB device connected to your computer.

I have Dell PC Dimension 8300. Yesterday I have turned off computer and now I cannot reboot it back. It starts and then it stop and on screen is: strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility and cursor....

go to F2 and check the time and date if this is wrong you may need to change the COSMOS battery take off the side panel you will see a large watch type battery it is sprung loaded just replace it.
or insert your operating system disks follow the on screen prompts.

It is most likely a piece of software or your hard drive that is causing the issue. Any easy way to tell would be to go into "safe mode" and see if you still have the same issue: reboot the PC and when it starts/beeps start pushing/tapping F8 until you get a menu with an option for safe mode. Once that comes up see if you can get it to freeze again. If it does not freeze the likely culprit is a piece of software, if still freezes the likely cause is hardware related and I would look at either a good hard drive utility to try and repair the issue or simply replacing your hard drive.

PC locking up and or black screen

This problem sounds like a HDD failure. If you have access to another computer you could try and slave her drive on that computer and run a check disk on her drive.
Whne you slave the drive make sure the jumpers are set you will see a diagram of the setting on the front of the drive on the sticker.
To run a check disk go to:-
Click on run ---> cmd ----> chkdsk
if there is a problem you could try chkdsk/f
Hope this helps.
