If you can get to the screen that gives you an option to boot from safe mode, select it and uninstall the virus software; If you cannot get to any other screen this software you used may have corrupted your file system and entered invalid registry keys rendering your system inoperable. Try reinstalling your OS, its a shame that you may have to lose your info, but the best thing sometimes is to give the machine a fresh start. Reformat and Partition your hard drive and reload your OS, if you can't do this, then it may be your hard drive is gone.

How do I unlock my cursor? I can not move it.


Try holding the power switch for 15 seconds, or until it turns off your computer and then restart it again and see if that helps. Also check if an external USB mouse (from a desktop computer or from a friend) works. Plug it into your laptop and wait for it to install(up to several minutes) and see if it moves the cursor.

My laptop has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Blinking Cursor b> Laptops, especially models with a touchpad, occasionally experience issues with a skipping cursor. The cursor on the screen may skip or jump when you are using it or even when you are just typing and not actually using the cursor. This can be especially annoying when playing games or typing. Adjusting the sensitivity of your touchpad may remedy the problem.

Close all application windows and restart the laptop. This will shut down any background processes that might be affecting your cursor. Rebooting often remedies cursor skipping problems. Run antivirus software to confirm that your misbehaving cursor is not caused by malware. If the cursor has changed to an unfamiliar shape without you initiating the change, your system could be infected by a virus or you might have installed unstable software. Run an antivirus scan and remove suspicious files and programs from your laptop. Adjust your touchpad's settings. In Windows, open "Control Panel," click on "Mouse" and then click "Tapping." On a Mac, access "Trackpad" and "System Preferences." Lower the tracking speed or sensitivity so that if you are accidentally touching the touchpad while typing, you are less likely to cause the cursor to skip. Save your new settings.

I have a acer extensa 5235, running windows 7 pro.the problem started when i was playing an game of golf on it. a box come up and it said the next course could not be found. then the screen went black...


Hello,

Your computer's operating system just crashes down. What you can do is to do a start up repair. You need the operating system discs which came with your computer during the time when you bought it. It says windows 7 installation/operating system.

Here's what you need to do.

1. Insert the windows 7 operating system disc in the dvd drive.
2. Restart the computer. It will bring you to a page which will ask you to press any key. Just press any key to boot to the installation cd.
3. A blue screen will appear and it will bring you to the page which has the option to install or to repair. Select repair.
4. Then follow the on-screen instructions and finish the process until it restarts.
5. If it does not fix the problem, you have to do a complete/clean reinstallation.

I am providing you a full tutorial on how to do it. Click on the link below so that you will be directed to the link.

My Toshiba Satellite Notebook is only showing a blue screen with the cursor in upper left hand corner blinking.


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

Black screen w/blinking cursor


So.. you can select safe mode? Or you turn it on and it is resuming into the blank screen?

If the latter. Unplug the power, pull the battery out for 20 seconds or so. Then put it all back together and try booting up.

I have a inspiron B130 and it wont boot i just disk rom installed.... now i try to boot from disk rom and it doesnt allow me to do anything it just restarted comes to a blue screen and restart


when computer comes up just after the dell screen hit the f12 key along the top. It will give you the option of booting from cd or hard drive. Pick the cd and if your cd is bootable it should boot from it.If it still gives you blue screen you probably have bad memory.
