My dell e5500 i was trying to download a game my screen went black and bootmgr is missing popup i tried holding down ctrl-alt-del and nothing happen on top of the keyborad a lock with the number 9 pop

Ctrl and Alt are not repeat keys. While holding them down, press and release the Del key and you may get the required result.

But to get control again, you may have to hold the power button down for a few seconds till the computer actually shuts off, not just till it goes into sleep mode. Then a restart may give you some choices to proceed.

Gateway/vista black screen with no ctrl+alt+del but a nice cursor

Try this, before it boots up and just after in posts press F8, it should bring up a page where you can choose your boot option, choose "Safe Mode", if the computer does boot to safe mode there are a few steps you can do to remedy this.

First goto my computer, c:drive/windows and scroll down to a folder called prefetch open the folder, highlight everything in that folder by left clicking once on one of the icons and holding control(ctrl) then pressing A once everything is highlighted hold down the shift key and press delete, everything should now be gone, exit out of all the windows do a disk clean up, my computer right click on c:drive (your main drive) and click on disk cleanup tick all boxes and then click ok to start deleting the temp files. once finished reboot mechines and leave it to boot up. if you still are having problems or it wont boot up into safe mode post back. cheers.
