    Do you have any CDs or DVDs in your notebook? Do you have memory cards, external drives or MP3 players plugged into your notebook while your computer is booting?

Hi,

Often, this indicates that the laptop could not find its default boot device which would be your hard drive. Pls enter the BIOS/CMOS setup and determine if your laptop can auto detect the hard disk. If detectable, save and exit, if not the drive may require replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dell latitue D610 stuck on black screen with a blinking cursore.. help?


First, try and boot into safe mode by powering off your computer then powering it back on and tapping the f8 key, after that you should see safe mode and other options below it, click the first option which is safe mode, then go into your start menu and go to your system restore which in Windows 7 and Vista is located in accessories and then system tools, then choose a restore point earlier than the date you are on. This is a temporary fix and you will need to get a virus removal done asap. Hope this helps.

how long have you let it try to boot when you get the _ flashing. also if you have your computer to set up from a usb drive make sure you have disconnected all usb drives and other peripherals just to be certain it's not trying to boot from an external source.

Black screen, blinking cursor in top left hand corner


Could be a number of issues, incl unseated processor or a faulty hard drive. First off I would remove mains & battery, remove covers from underneath and reseat any memory or processors you can find - by reseat I mean just take out and put back.If this fails, I would look to price up a new hard drive before condemning the machine.

Computer displays black screen with blinking cursor


Its seems its not booting correctly. Just Insert Windows CD and fix the windows. Another solution is to press (I think) F1 or F11 or F12 (depending on the model) when booting the machine. It will take you to recovery mode. Use it to restore the boot section ONLY.

Wont boot up


Could it be the Boot Virus? I had the same issues. My co-worker was able to find the virus, which Norton could not. My PC is now running normal.
