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!

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.

After windows screen it goes blank, i know the lcd works because i can choose F2 or F12 and read and choose anything there however when i command it it just goes blank, no cursor, just blue / black ..blank


If the system will not complete boot, try the F8 boot menu and select safe mode and see if the system will boot to windows.
If the system boots to windows, you could have software issues or a startup item causing the system to hang at boot, try turning off the startup group items in MSCONFIG (Start, run, MSCONFIG) and see if the system will boot in normal mode.
If that is not help, hold the Fn Key while pressing the power buttong this should start PSA diagnostics on the system, see if any hardware fails

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.

My VAIO VGN-FS920 laptop freezes after booting to the windows operating system. I see my desktop but cannot work because the cursor freezes.


Hello.

Either you have an operating system problem or memory issue.

First, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Remove the battery. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test). Replace the cover and battery and boot.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, it boots to the windows logo, then black screen with cursor. I have tried to boot in safe mode to no avail same problem. Can you assit me please. Thank you...


instead of Safe Mode, have you tried Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

If that doesn't work you may have corrupted windows system files.
You can rule out the hardware by downloading and burning a CD with a Linux Live system on it. That will boot into a Linux desktop without installing anything on your hard disk or overwriting your files. If that boots OK then you know that your windows system files are damaged and you may need to reload windows.

It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.

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.
