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.

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.

Computer won't boot Windows Vista. Screen goes black with cursor arrow.


In this case you have to do the PC restore . you can do that in dell machines by shutting down the machine and when it is coming back on just HOLD DOWN THE CTRL ket and the START HITTING f11 key in this case you will lose the data which you have the on the c drive but this issue will get resolved .

Else you can try to restart in the safe mode with networking and then go to the system restore and then select the bold dates in which you have idea you system was working fine . selct the date and then do the system restore . In this case you will not lose the data but you will lose the updates which you have done after that date .

in both the cases system will work .

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.
