Hi

it may be worth trying this

press power key and the F8 key at the same time
and this may hopefully take you into repair options
if you are lucky enough to get into the repair options
then go down to and try the last known good configurations
then windows will restart and try to go back to when it was ok

if not do the same again and try the restore option
and choose a date when you think it was running ok


good luck

Black screen with blinking cursor


Sounds like software is not fulling loading. Reboot the computer into safe mode by turning off, and then back on while pressing the F8 key. The computer should boot into the safe mode and hopefully provide you a means to further troubleshoot.

Hi,

It appears that the Windows is corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.
NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

If the above steps are not working then I am sorry to say that it is going for repair as the Hard disk might have corrupted.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

One minute it was working fine, the next it was a black screen with the cursor blinking in the upper left corner. I tried re-booting it, but it just goes back to the black screen with blinking cursor. Any...


Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

Won't complete the boot up


As far as the rebooting is concerned id check the bios boot order make sure it can see the HDD. You normally recieve that blinking cursor when it cant find the HDD or boot device.
Also have you tried using hte restore cd's It's a bit of a last resort effort but my guess is your HDD is dead if you attempt to run the Restore CD's and they fail it pretty much means its the HDD.
The cracking noises will be from the speaker wires either loose or touching something else causing a static type effect. Fix is to adjust wires possibly replace them. Not easy to do by yourself. Unlikely that the speakers are affecting the reboot though.
Other possibility is a faulty mainboard capacitors that will definatley rebooting to occur.
Let me know how you go with the bios and restore discs or if you need further help.

A hard disk problem is preventing windows from starting.


The black screen with flashing cursor can be caused by the files needed to boot being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.

You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F See if that fixes the file structure and allows the system to boot. If that fails, you can try a repair installation of Windows. If that fails, the most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
