Laptop Wont boot black screen.

Theres a black screen. It starts the windows symbol and it has the white cursor but nothing else even when you try to start in safemode...

Laptop won't boot windows

Hopefully this is in the right area. I am having an issue with my Windows 7 64 bit laptop. I did an update and pressed the"restart now" to let the changes take effect, when it restarted it got to the"starting windows" screen but it stopped there for a while then flashed a blue screen quickly.

Then it restarted itself and goes to a menu that says"windows failed to start.

A recent hardware or software change might be the cause..." I have two options" Launch Startup repair (recommended)" or"start windows normally".

When I choose the Launch startup repair it says"windows is loading files" and then it shows a black screen with a mouse cursor, I can move the cursor but nothing loads.

Windows Scaling Problem

My laptop is set for a resolution of 1680 x 1050. I have a monitor which I connect to via a docking station, and it's a wider screen format than my widescreen laptop. The resolution on the monitor is 1920 x 1080.

The laptop seems to support that just fine with one exception. The Windows 7 snap-to feature that lets you move a window to the right or left edge of the screen and have it pop into a half-screen mode only works on the left edge of the screen.

My cursor doesn't stop at the right edge of the screen like it does on the left . it just drags the window all the way off the right edge of the monitor.

And some icons that I have placed near the right edge of the screen on the laptop seem to be missing . as though they've been placed somewhere off the right edgeof my visible screen on the external monitor.

Is there any way to correct this?

Win7 Black Screen of Death

I am trying to fix a laptop that has developed the Black Screen of death, so called because on bootin the machine it appears to load up as normal, two bars go across the screen saying windows is loading and I see the windos logo come and go, the a short pause and then the mouse pointer.

The pointer is movable around the screen but nothing can be done with the machine.

No keyboard entry makes any difference, not Ctrl Alt Del or anything. It had initially had screens to repair but on running them several times they disappeared.

F8 on boot does bring up the usual preboot list but none of them work. All safe mode variants give the same BlackSOD, all other options do not promote any change in the system. When I use a Win7 recovery cd, I get exactly th wsame results.

I cannot reinstall as this was an academic install for low income family and only has a tracking number, not a produck key.

I have tried nearly suggestions from google searches including replacing explorer.exe etc.

I would really like to help the family whose laptop this is.

touchpad Dell Vostro 1700

I'm having a small inconvenience issue with my touchpad on my laptop (model and manufacturer in subject line). I cannot scroll down any screen by running my finger down the right side of the touchpad. I was wondering if there was a fix for this because the drivers from Dell will not run in Windows 7. I also would like to be able to change the functionality of my touchpad buttons (i.e. clicking both buttons to open up a new tab in internet explorer, like I can do with my Vista install on this laptop.)

Solution for unsupported Touchpad on Dell Vostro 1700

I have installed Windows 7 32-bit on a Dell Vostro 1700 notebook, but I am having issues with a 'jumping cursor' (while typing, the cursor will suddenly move to another line in my text, usually the place where my mouse previously clicked).
I have read many discussions and I now know that it is to do with the mouse driver (both touchpad and USB) and that Dell does not do drivers for Windows 7 for the Vostro 1700.
I tried to just live with it for a while but I cannot work like this anymore, so I am wondering whether there is any solution, other than reverting back to Vista?
