Is the arrow the curser and can you move it with the touch pad?

    O.k. This is going to be a failed hard drive. What's happening is that one or more of the many sectors in the hard drive, that the operating system is written to, is corrupt or unreadable, so, the system reads to that point and past that point but can't put the two together, therefore it won't boot or run properly. It's kind of like reading a three hundred page book that has hundred or so pages ripped out of the middle, you need all of them to put the story together. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the hard drive.

    Possibly, if it's working but running very slowly, it could still be a bad sector that it's having a hard time reading through, or it could also be a bad memory chip. Try removing the memory and starting with one chip in, then change them. If you see an improvement in the start up or it gets worse, then one of the chips has failed or is failing and will need replaced. If you find a failed chip, don't put it back n the machine. If the memory checks good, then it's still in the hard drive. It may run for a while, but eventually it will go out completely. I suggest backing up any data to disc that you want to save while it's up and running.

How to remove black screen from my laptop


If you have a repair disk, boot from it and run a "Start up Repair". On a Dell machine I think it's "F10" during the boot process to get to the BIOS settings, change the setting to boot from CD to run the repair. After running the repair, reboot and enter the BIOS again, change the setting back to boot from the Hard Drive, save and exit. Hopefully this will solve the issue.

I have a Toshiba laptop with a Windows 7 operating system AND A BLACK SCREEN WITH AN ARROW(curser) ON IT


Try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Restart the computer couple of times, you will get an option to run startup repair. Use your keyboard up / down arrows and highlight the startup repair option and hit enter. This will run startup repair and should solve the issue.

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

select repair which then takes you you a dos platform (black screen c:/promt
type in chkdsk (exactly as is)

To repair system:-boot up with os disk
in choices install or repair select install
after diagnose system stsate os already exist install or repair ...
select repair..if you want to reinstall fresh copy choose install instead of repair.
repair does as it says and leaves previosly installed software intact..
install wipes all data and installs new copy which has to be registered again within 30 days.
