That cursor means that nothing is loaded - Vista is completely corrupted. You will have to reinstall it from the start.

On start up screen just bright white,,,restart and again screen just white


Try holding down alt+f4 (upon launch) and launching in safe mode. If that fails turn your computer off again and hold down alt+f4 on launch again but this time do a system restore to an older restore point. If you keep getting the white screen then I would take it in to get looked at.

Get your original windows cd and put it into cd drive and boot up and it will reinstall the operating system. Youll be able to find all your old files on the c; drive afterwards in a folder callled old windows. If its vista or later you'll have to keep hitting F8 until you get into boot menu and select system restore and restore to factory settings. You will lose all files this way.

Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Please press the f8 key on restarting the system on the gateway logo and see if you are able to reach the windows advanced menu screen that shows the safe mode option.
if yes please selct safe mode and then please restore the system to the earliest back date maybe 2-3 days back.

How do I restore my dell inspiron 2650 to factory defaults?


If your system is PC Restore Equipped, it will show show a black page with a blue bar across the top after the Dell Splash Screen. the bar will have www.dell.com in White letters. If you see this page for about a second during the boot process, the system is PC Restore Equipped. At the page with the blue bar, press CTRL+F11 and that will initiate the restore process. Providing the image is not damaged, then restore process takes about 20 to 30 minutes and will return the system to out of box configuration. If there are any errors or if the PC Restore page is not available, then you'll have to do a clean install of Windows using the Dell Windows XP CD that came with the system, then load drivers and applications.

Gateway laptop mx3414-black screen cannot load windows


Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.
