Black screen with cursor on dell laptop - windows recovery
Command prompt usable but I can't use sfc /scannow when I use cmd from system recovery option
I have no recovery cd and anyway my cd driver no work
What's wrong... Please write below.
I'm having black screen with cursor only on my laptop! I just restarted my computer because there was a message prompt from my antivirus (AVG) to restart to finish the update. When it restarted all I got was a black screen with cursor only.
Same thing happens when I boot to safe mode. Start up repair and system restore cannot fix it automatically. I even tried the crtl+alt+delete. doesn't work either. I'm using dell n4010, windows 7.
I've had my acer aspire 5732z for about 4 years and it was working fine until today. I have already installed norton antivirus so it couldn't be a virus. I was using it this morning and then shut it down, after around half an hour I went to turn it back on and I was greeted with the recovery screen, I tried to start it normally but it wouldn't work and just went back to the recovery screen.
I then tried to access my laptop through recovery mode but it will not load all I get is a black screen and after a few minutes the blue windows screen comes up with an oversized cursor but no icons or anything clickable.
I have a password on my laptop also if that's any key information. I really don't want to reset it to factory settings as I have extremely important documents on it.
My computer boots up to a black screen with a mouse. The problem is, when I boot from anything or into any option I get this. Safe Mode gets me black screen, so does booting from a Windows 7 Recovery disk, everything puts me in a black screen with cursor.
At first it will show Windows logo on the screen, with loading bar, then cuts out, and cursor pops up. That's it.
Also, when I try to boot normally, it hangs at Windows logo, then flashes a quick blue screen then reboots.
Dell 560.windows 7 home premium.CPU worked absolutely perfect until yesterday.I was not using any antivirus and decided to download a free version of norton through comcast cable.at the last step it told me to restart my computer.when I did after 3-4 minutes all I got was a black screen with an oversized white cursor.not blinking.
I have tried everything I know along with trying all suggestions I have read online.disc does run but it always ends up on the black screen with the cursor.CPU is only 3 years old.maybe I should have said the hell with the antivirus.again, it always ends up on the black screen w/ cursor.
I have an Acer Aspire 7540 and just recently I went to start up my computer and it went to a black screen with a blinking cursor. I can't get into safe mode or anything my keyboard on the laptop don't work.
I go into bios it shows the hard drive. I try using the installation disks to do a full recovery but then when I restart the computer afterwards it goes right to the black screen and cursor again.
A few days ago I turned off my dell laptop and everything seemed fine, the very next morning I turned it on and and everything seem ok, until it went passed the welcome screen the screen turned black and just the mouse cursor appeared and it just doesn't go passed that it stays in the black screen with the cursor.
I'm able to get in in safe mode and I sis a complete virus scan and malware but everything was clear, I tried system restores but I don't have the disks for it and it says that it is required, I tried restore point but I forgot to create them I was wondering if there can be any other way to fix this.
Black Screen with cursor? (Emachines Laptop) When I switch my laptop on it comes up with a black screen with just the cursor in the top left, this happens before I get to any login screens etc, It's like its wanting to boot a CD but there;s no CD/DVD in the rom!
Even when I have put one in, it still hasn't worked I've looked on lots of forums but none have helped. The only thing that works is F2 that takes me to InsydeH20 Setup Utility & F12 Boot menu But they don't help!
I've tried the usual F8 for safe mode but no such luck, nothing happens, still the same black screen with cursor!
Dell N5030: Windows 7 wont start. Dell logo > black screen. How to restore? My friend has asked me to help with her Dell N5030 Inspiron laptop. She has had it for about just over a year now. Dual-core Pentium, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 64bit.
She is not computer savvy and I don't know how shes managed to do this but heres the problem:
1. You press the power button
2. The Dell logo appears along with the F2 & F12 options for Setup & Boot Options
3. This is followed by a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left. that's it.
All this happens in the space of 6 seconds (power-up to black screen). Nothing else happens, no Windows logo screen, no Microsoft logo, nothing. Screen stays black with the cursor and the laptop instantly turns off when I press the power button.
My friend was desperate because she had over 740 family photos and some important documents she didn't want to lose. I was able to recover all of those using a Linux Mint live CD so at least shes all smiles for that Using Mint made me realize that the hardware was working perfectly.
No mem faults and of course the optical drive was fine. So its something with Windows 7. Also while using Mint I could clearly see the Dell Recovery Partition.
The problem is I don't know how to get the Inspiron to fire it up - because I cannot even get into Safe Mode where the "Repair your computer" option is.
When I pressed F12 all that comes up is an option to tweak the boot order and a diagnostics option. I ran the latter and it found no hardware faults at all. I wasn't surprised. I tried the usual tricks for trying to get it to begin the factory reset.
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CR120E. Right now, when I start the laptop, after loading, I can only see a black screen with a cursor. I remember vaguely that there was a virus infection (antivirus av) that I was trying to get rid of but when I restarted, I have the black screen.
I have backup of files so any solution that would involve memory loss is ok. I also have the sony vaio recovery media kit which comes in 3 cds. I have no budget for a new computer or laptop.
My Windows 7 laptop is starting up and then going to a black screen with movable cursor. When I hard reboot it, I am brought to a screen recommending that I restore it. This happens every time I switch on and sometimes when the laptop goes to idle.
