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


roop_gill,
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,

Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor


Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

Good Luck!

Need recovery **** for modle# w4885 it wont boot up , nothing but black screen and cursor flashes


When you go back to boot up, and you get to the Dell screen, can you please start tapping the F8 key, that should bring you to a start up menu, where start in Safe Mode is an option. If you can get there, please go to Start, Run, and type in sfc /scannow, exactly as shown, with a space between the c and the /, then hit Enter. If you have any missing or damaged system files this should repair them.

When this has completed, please go to Start, Run, and type in MSCONFIG, then hit Enter. On the General tab, click on Diagnostic Startup, then reboot the PC. If you can get to the log in screen, then one of your startup programs is causing the problem. If not we'll have to look for something else.

Is there any kind of error message other than getting to the black screen? Is the screen completely blank or is the cursor next to something, a letter, or symbol?
Hope this helps.

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.

Black screen with blinking cursor upon start up


You don't say what Windows are you using.
Anyways, it seems like you have a corrupted BOOT problem.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can insert your Windows installation CD, and choose the "Repair my pc" option.
Windows will do it automatically fro you, and you'll be up and running in a couple of minutes.

Dont forget to rate this answer if it helps.

Black Screen on Startup.


Did you try " Last known good configuration at start up. If after boot you press the F8 key where you said you went into safe mode, did you try to load the good known config. It sounds like you have a corrupted registry.

Turning on my gateway 510 x PC I get a black screen/white cursor


Did you make any changes recently (add memory, etc.)? Does it make any beeping noises on startup? I've had this problem occur when putting in the wrong type of memory. If you haven't added memory and there is beeping on startup, find the manufacturer of the MOBO and you should be able to find a beep startup code to tell you what the issue is.

Logon


Go into your BIOS
Set the 1st Boot device preference to CD
Insert your windows XP disk
Boot from CD
Run XP Repair

You do this at your own risk. I am in no way accountable for damage to your computer.
