Aspire 5475 freezes on startup


It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

Pro-book 4520 won't boot. I switched on this morning. The windows (7) logo appeared, then blue/black screen and cursor only. Would not boot up. Ran diagnostics which said all OK. Still won'


The windows files are corrupted or the hard drive has issues, load cd installation disc if available, if that fails have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

I need to reset the bios as it gets to the black screen and the flashin cursor in top left but then just freezes after that and doesn't do anything. Please help


You need to run the Check Disk Utility. You've got a missing or corrupt boot or system file.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. 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 when the options appear.

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

GX620 Dell, will not boot, 3 green steady lights and power lite, usb light....when i power on, it looks at the hard drive, then stops. monitor has blinking cursor...no bios comes up, and cannot access...


Does anything ever post to the lcd screen when you press the power button to boot it? Does it every show you things like which key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup?

I think you have a corrupt or missing boot file or system file. The blinking cursor is indicative of that. Try running the Check Disk Utility from your XP CD.

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

Possible that the memory is faulty or the hard disc has errors. You will need to take Help from DELL support before any action is taken specially for estimate.

Cursor is frozen in microsoft windows 2007 , i can't type


First of all provide detail when does the cursor freezes after booting to the desktop or before and if after are you able to use it after booting to the desktop?
Try to boot in safe mode and check if it works fine then problem is either with your hardware or one of the third party applications or start up items assuming Microsoft and Computer first and second party

Will boot to desktop and go no further. cursor does not freeze up, but once I click on anything the hourglass does not go away and nothing happens. Have one stick of 512MB pc400 ram in it.


The problem is with a new harware or software that you installe. Try booting your system in safe mode, then use system restore to go back.

Curser freezes


When you said your cursor freeze, does the computer still respond or the whole computer froze. If the computer froze, then it could be anything from, memory, hard drive, cpu, or mainboard. Does the keyboard works, if just the cursor freeze, try using a usb mouse.
