Apple :: Bootcamp - 60 Seconds Pause On Boot - Black Screen White Cursor

Aug 14, 2009

Just installed Visa 64 , everything went fine , but every time i boot into Vista i get a black screen with a white cursor in the top left have corner flashing very fast and it does this for almost 60 seconds and then Vista boots normally.

I have tried unplugging everything from my Mac , but i still get the same problem.

It looks like Vista is wating for something then it gives up, I have not installed any software only the bootcamp driver.

Anybody know what is wrong, I had Xp on previously and did not have this problem on fat32 , Vista only works on NTFC if that makes a difference.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Laptop Black Screen With White Cursor

Feb 12, 2013

I have a Dell 1525 laptop which will not boot beyond the Dell logo, I get a black screen with a white cursor.  I tried to use the last known good configuration and it started out fine but I got the black screen again. I can't go into the safe mode, it only goes as far as loading the files. I tried booting from the cd to do a repair but that options says there are no problems. I attached an external monitor and I get the same black screen with the white cursor. I am running Vista Home as my operating system.

Apple :: Why No Black & White 2 On GMA

Mar 10, 2009

wanted to play this on my macbook (on os x, I am not gonna install windows just for the 1 game)

Quote:

Black & White 2 for Mac has the following system requirements (minimum): 1.8GHz Intel Mac only, 512MB RAM, 128MB graphics card, DVD drive, 5.1 GB of hard disk space, and Mac OS X v10.4.8 or later . Intel GMA processors are not supported. Apples latest GeForce 9400 M-enabled Macbooks are a go!

It meets the requirements, why won't Feral port it?

HP Pavilion G6 Lockups :: Black Screen With Cursor At Startup

Sep 29, 2013

I have a HP pavilion G6 which worked fine for like half a year. Today i wanted to startup my laptop, but it seems to be stuck on a black screen (with my cursor appeared) after the HP loading screen. Sometimes at the startup it says "preparing automatic restore", but results after loading at the same black screen.I tried to solve this problem with the following things:

1. Hard reset (turn off everything, hold power button 30 seconds, turn on everything and startup etc.)
2. Replacing RAM. Someone at the forum said this worked, but it didn't.
3. Tried taking off all USB devices such as mouse, DC adapter etc. and started up but didn't work.

A month ago i tried doing a factory reset, but my laptop seemed to be stuck on the same black screen.

Dell Inspiron M5030 :: Black Screen Blinking Cursor?

Feb 27, 2013

I have a dell M5030.  When I power it up I see the dell logo with F2/F12 options. I can get into both of those, after that screen disappears it goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner.  I have tried various "fixes" that i can find online, from powering it down hitting f12 to try and boot from hard drive, nothing seems to work.  I have ran the diagnostics fully and no errors come up, but I can not seem to get it to do anything.  F8 does not work for me to try to go to safe mode.

Lenovo Z50-75 P/Y/Z Series :: Black Screen After Windows 8.1 Updates - No Cursor

Nov 27, 2014

I have a new Lenovo Z50-75 with FreeDOS - I made a Windows 8.1 installation, and all went fine.
 
After installing the around 70 updates - at one point it reboots and I get a black screen, right after shortly seeing the Lenovo Logo ( entering BIOS works ).
 
It is not booting Windows at all - I can not enter Safe Mode therefore, and I do not get any cursor.
  
The behaviour is reproduceable, done this 2 times. Also when it hangs in the black screen, the van get reall busy, lound and the notebook gets hot.

Acer :: Win7 Won't Install On Vista Laptop 5630 Black Screen With Cursor

Dec 1, 2009

our laptop keeps throwing a flakey when trying to install Win7 Ultimate over the current crappy Vista OS.

Laptop passed the compatibility checker no probs & has all the updates installed, but every time we try, we get either

1. windows 7 install failure message then black screen with cursor

or

2. straight to black screen with cursor.

This is even after changing to the low res setting that is mentioned so often when googling the issue.

I've looked on the Acer site, but it says if I got it from pc world I should take it up with them?

Anyone here have any advice to get it to work, or should we just smash the laptop off a wall?

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Recovery :: Black Screen - Numlock And Capslock Lights Blinking Twice Every Couple Of Seconds

Jul 22, 2014

I have a problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61-325ED. It won't boot. What I see is a black/blank screen, with the numlock and capslock lights blinking twice every couple of seconds.
 
According to the blink codes, it seems the BIOS has been corrupted [URL] ....  Sadly, no adequate solution is given on that page.Win + B  or Fn + B at startup does nothing, pressing all the arrow keys gives me a continuous blinking pattern (edit: I can't seem to replicate this anymore...). I have also tried creating a bootable USB-stick with a BIOS update, but I don't think I have done it correctly, for it never gets activated (the light on the USB never turns on).

Also, removing/resetting the RAMs or just one of the RAMs does not work. Neither does removing/resetting the CMOS battery. How to successfully create a bootable USB-stick with BIOS update for CQ61-325ED?

Dell Inspiron 6000 :: Won't Go Pass Black Screen With Blinking White Line

Mar 25, 2013

I recent;y installed a version of windows on my Dell Laptop, Inspiron 6000. I worked for a week or two then when I turned it on a couple days ago, it won't go pass the black screen with the blinking white line. A user some where on this site on an other post that had similar problems said that  it to re-install and delete the existing partition and create another one with 120GB. I did but when creating another partition, I tried to type in the 122880 MB (122880MB = 120GB), and upon pressing ENTER, the numbers 122880 goes back to the number of MB of the partition disk space I had previously. I hope this all make sense. I do not have the money to buy another laptop. I have a Windows XP CD, but not the original. The laptop worked fine before with this version.

To fix the blinking line on the start-up black screen, all I need to do is to re-install windows XP and change the partition to 120GB. But every time I try to change the number of MB, it doesn't work but reverts back to the original number. Is there another way to fix the blinking-white-line-on-the-start-up-screen?

Also, I tried to use the repair control...doesn't work.

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: ThinkPad X230 Login Screen Not Appearing - Black Display With Cursor

Jun 21, 2013

I have a ThinkPad X230 Tablet. I tried system restore and safe mode, but none of it works.
 
After windows loads with the glowing animation, the login screen does not appear. I cannot open a task manager. I don't know if it's a problem with explorer.exe or what.
 
The explorer.exe crashed when I tried to connect to an external hard drive, and I tried to get task manager to open, but it wouldn't open.
 
That's when I tried to restart computer, and login screen would not appear. All I have is a black screen with cursor.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Windows 8.1 Update - S440 Black Screen With Flickering Cursor

Oct 20, 2013

I have an S440. I've had it for one week. Two days ago I downloaded the Windows 8.1 update from the store. Since then, when I start up the computer, it doesn't even taken me to the 'sign in' screen. There's just a black screen. When I move the cursor, it briefly appears, flickers, then disappears again.

I understand this is an issue with the graphics drivers. So I ran Windows in safemode and disabled Intel R HD Graphics family and AMD Radeon HD  8600 series graphics drivers.

This, unfortunately, hasn't fixed the problem. It still boots to a black screen with an occasionally flickering cursor. I'm currently running in safemode.

Dell xps 15z ... I have an issue that the cursor disappears every few seconds whilst typing

To clarify it is the cursor and not the mouse pointer. When you click the mouse the cursor reappears in the right location so its not being moved by trackpad etc.

It appears that the tab/window open become de-active and the cursor disappears.

My friend just gave me her White Macbook pre 2007 i beleive to fix because i fix all her computers but this is the first time im trying to fix a mac . Upon pressing the power button im greeted by the BONG tone and a white screen. Then i start hearing the HD making some very messed up noises witch to me are the fimiliar sound of a hd failure and so i beleive this is the problem. After a minute or two i get a flashing folder with a ? on it witch means it can't find the system files it needs to boot. So i tryed booting from the Tiger discs but it will not boot. Now this is leading me to beleive that it is the logic board. Right now im waiting till morning to buy a torx t8 so i can replace the HD.
