    when i boot it up it goes to the windows xp screen after that right before the starting up screen (blue screen) it goes to a blank black screen with the mouse cursor. i can move the mouse cursor around, and at one point i let it sit there for 20 minutes to see if it would go past this point. it did not, so i turned it off and after several more tries it works. although this is pretty scary!

OS is, manuf is????check the power supply and ensure fan works, check then to see if the hard drive is functional-hear any click noises?is the video cable from monitor plugged in< check please? Is this a plug in direct to motherboard or is it a separate video card? Might want to take PC and hook to another monitor to see if same error occurs. Error is consistent, open CPU and check if connections for a video card. see what strives you can accomplish, repost more data.

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.

Turn the computer off all of the way by holding in the power button until it shuts off.

Turn it back on and immediately start tapping the F8 key. It should bring you to a menu that has an option for going to "Last Known Good Configuration". Choose that option and see if it boots up.

If pressing F8 doesn't bring you to the menu - you may need to run diagnostics on the computer. To get to the diagnostics, attempt to boot to the Boot Menu by pressing F11 or F12 at the boot screen and see if it gives you the option to run diagnostics.

My hp g61 will only display a blank/black screen with the cursor after it has finish booting


That cursor is the way in which the BIOS of the laptop is telling you that Windows is completely corrupted and unbootable. You will need to reinstall it so use the recovery cd that came with the laptop.

Most probably the intergrated Graphic on the mainboard of your Laptop is faulty. Too bad, you have to replace it from ACER or any authorised Vendors.
If the cost is too expensive to repair, get a new Laptop/notebook.

Computer displays black screen


Hi all you need to do is insert the windows CD and whilst booting up it will give you an option to recover windows files only if the cd recognizes a damaged OS, If not then you will have to go through the console which is a more technical method.

Black screen


Sounds like display problems if you are getting past the Windows splash screen. Try booting into VGA mode by pressing F8 when the computer is booting just after the POST screen. If it works you need to update your graphics drivers.
