Oct 6, 2012

my dell computer xp windows 7 when i try to boot up it will just get to blue screen but does not bring up accounts or allow to boot up any further then blinks or flashes blue to black screen and back. I can boot in safe mode and i have scanned computer with mal-ware, mcafee, and eset scanner . have not found a virus. I did lose the ability to watch you-tube videos, and the last error i got was adobe crashed. i don't know what to do from here.

Flashing Splash Screen - Windows 7 Machine Won't Boot

Nov 19, 2012

When I get to the splash screen it just blinks. It won't boot. I've tried going into the safe mode by pressing F8 at the previous screen. I've tried booting from a start disk. It won't go into the advanced boot options, and booting from a disk made no difference. This has happened before but I was able to get in through safe mode. Once I get in I can do a system restore and it will work for a while. How can I get in to my machine?

Black Screen With Flashing Cursor On Boot Up?

Oct 5, 2011

First off I have a Dell Inspiron n7010 system running Windows 7 Home 64bit

OK the other night I shut down my system and all seemed fine until next day. I went to reboot and got the normal Dell splash screen with both the Set Up (F2) and Boot (F12) options. After the Dell screen finished it then went to load Windows, but instead I got a Black Screen with Flashing Cursor. Can't move cursor at all.

On the Dell screen I can access the Set Up (F2) bios pages. I can also access the Boot Options (F12) Page. What I can not gain access to is the Restore (F8) menus.

I did not know to make any sort of boot disk or boot repair disk so I do not have either of these and I do not know of anyone who is using windos 7 that could make me one to use. Also Dell puts the rstore on the hard drive so onlyhave a MS Works CD and a Drivers & Utilities CD l ran the diagnostics utility but forgot to plug in my computer so when it was almost done the battery must have died so will redo the test later as tired tonight as been up half the night with this issue. But for memory the first 6 of the 8 memories areas it was scanning tested fine. Will post an update later today when Iget chance to run the whole thing again!!

I know others have had this screen. Is there a solution as have spent the last day or so googling it and seems very mixed results depending on the user and their own case with this black screen w/cursor.Some have said bad hard drive (I HOPE NOT THE CASE FOR ME AT LEAST!!!) Some have said bad mother board. Some have said virus or malware Some have referenced a software update both Microsofts and also specific computer companies. So what can I do to get to my files at least to back them up that is providing the drive is OK! I do know from the boot menu my hard drive is showing in the boot menus. Does this mean that the drives OK but maybe a corrupted boot area or something?

Windows 7 Won't Boot,flashing "_" Black Screen?

Attempted to run chkdsk after Windows Update failed. When I restarted computer to run chkdsk, I got the black screen with the flashing "_". No pointer, if I push crtl, alt, delete, it just attempts to reboot. No other key does anything. I have removed the battery, unplugged the computer, but still get the same results. I am unable to get any boot options when pressing F8. Unable to boot from Repair disk, either. Ran diagnostics in F12, which showed all fine

Windows 7 Will Not Boot After Blue Screen?

Apr 18, 2012

I was playing a video game earlier today and received a blue screen. When the computer restarted it got stuck on the windows splash screen. I have tried just about everything I can think of to try to fix the computer. I changed out graphic card, ram, power supply for different ones but no luck. Also tried booting to last known working setup. Even restored factory image and still no luck. The computer will not boot to any form of safe mode. I also have ran start up repair numerous times but comes up empty handed.

Flashing Screen After Windows 7 Load Screen?

Sep 15, 2012

I don't know too much about computers and I just got a hand-me-down Dell Precision 320 PC from my dad just last weekend and it just crashed. I got a message saying something crashed and if this was the first time I saw it I just needed to reboot my computer. I proceeded to do so and then I got the mysterious black screen with movable cursor hanging scenario. I booted up the advanced boot menu and went to repair computer to "Last Known Good Configuration" and since then it boots up to passed the windows loading screen to a stock windows 7 screen and it flashes about every seven seconds with the cursor blinking to loading something back to idle. It hangs here until I turn it off. I am not sure if this has anything to do with the situation but there have been a couple of blackouts in my house due to heat that caused my computer to shut off a couple times.Safe mode gets the same resultsSFC found no errorsSystem:Windows 7 Ultimate 32bitIntel Core2 x6800 @ 2.93ghz8GB RamIf there's any other info I can provide without being able to boot my PC, I'd be happy to comply.

Blue Screen Of Death Followed By Missing SSD Boot Drive

Apr 17, 2012

I recently purchased an Asus U36SD laptop and replaced the hard drive with a Samsung 830 SSD. I built recovery DVDs and installed Windows 7 on the SSD using these discs. Everything had been working fine for almost two weeks, but last night I got a blue screen of death after sleeping my computer for the weekend. I have seen the BSOD after booting from sleep before on another laptop so this wasn't too alarming to me especially after ~72 hrs of sleeping. However, this morning when I woke my laptop from sleep, I got the blue screen and my computer hung on restart until it entered the BIOS settings after some period of time. In the BIOS my SSD was missing. I turned off my computer and took out the battery for a minute, and retried and was able to boot into Windows. Within a minute I got another BSOD and my SSD disappeared again.

whether this is likely an SSD issue or some other hardware issue? This laptop is a PAIN to swap the SSD in and out because you have to unplug fragile keyboard and touchpad cables to access it, so I am weary of opening up the laptop if I don't have to, but I do suspect it could be an SSD issue.

Windows 7 Screen Flashing

Oct 6, 2009

I've been using Windows 7 build 7100 happily for the past 6 months. But recently it develops a weird problem: The application window (like IE, firefox, outlook, explorer) flash quickly. I can see "Not responding" displayed in the title in between the each flash. I have Quad proc + 6GB memory, so the system slowness should not be a problem. The flash happens quite often, when I scroll down the screen, or typing, or have some user interaction with the application. I've disabled Aero interface, no help. I did Windows update, no help. Someone recommends removing nVidia driver, I did not try, as I have been using the same driver for the past 6 months without problem. I've installed Windows Security Essentials recently. But disabling it does not work either. Why do the flash start to happen recently?

Windows Screen Flashing After Update?

Feb 23, 2011

This morning one of our computers started acting strangely. Any window screens we have open, whether an Internet Explorer window, My Computer screen, etc, the top bars are flashing in and out. It is similar to the flashing like when it is trying to alert you of an error message / box you have to click through to do something else. The home screen is fine, and shows no signs of flashing or flickering, it only shows on any window screens you have open. It will interrupt you when you are trying to open drop down menus etc as well. I have gone into screen resolution, but as soon as I open a drop down box, it will close as soon as the screen flashes again. However I was able to change the resolution to a lower setting, but it still flashed. I also tried to change the screen refresh rate, but there was only one option to choose, 60 hertz. The computer is an Acer Laptop, running Windows 7 and AVG Antivirus, but I dont have any other exact specs on it right now as im working from a different computer. My mother said it had updated last night with a possible new Windows update? Again the back / desktop screen appears fine, it just seems to affect any windows you have open.

Windows Login Screen Flashing Showing No Users?

Jul 3, 2012

I have an odd problem I've not been able to fix. I have a laptop from a friend of a friend, so I don't know much of the history of it.Essentially, when started normally the laptop hits the windows 7 welcome screen, but instead of displaying a list of users, it flashes again and again. The cursor shows the busy circle next to it for a split second, then the screen goes black, then the screen comes back with the busy cursor.The system starts normally in safe mode.I've tried to disable all of the services and startup items with MSConfig, but that's made no difference. I've also run sfc /scannow which on it's first pass detected and fixed an item, but on subsequent passes sees no problems.After that was a bust I decided to try to revert to a system restore point. There are several the choose from, but once selected the restore doesn't actually take place. The system simply shuts down after preparing to restore, and when restarted in safe mode states that it was unable to start the shadow copy service (which to the best of my understanding can't be started in safe mode)

Screen Flashing

Oct 15, 2009

I'm currently running a GeForce 7900 GT/GTO card that I've never had problems with. I updated the drivers for Windows 7 from NVIDIA's site.

However, whenever I go to switch display settings, open a video, open a picture, or just about anything else graphically intense (including start-up) my screen freaks out. The screen will go a solid color (of whatever the background is), get lines through it, and then start flashing. Then after 10-20 seconds (or whenever the program I was trying to run is finished) it will revert back to normal.

I can run Aero just fine. I can run normal programs such as the internet browser, control panel, etc. fine as well. It's just whenever I try changing my display settings or running a video, opening a picture, etc.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be the problem? I've run GPU-Z and my card isn't overheating either I don't believe.

Flashing BIOS Firmware Update Has Lost Windows 7 Boot Record?

Nov 30, 2012

I wanted to install more RAM, but Supermicro support told me I needed to update BIOS (flash it) to enable it to accept higher RAM.After I did this, the BIOS seems to have lost the record that boots my Windows 7 installation. After going through the checks, it just comes up with "Operating System not found."So I thought that, since I have two SATA drives, I could try installing Windows on my redundant disk to see if that might generate a dual boot menu.I was able to successfully install a fresh copy of Windows on the 2nd disk, but it will only boot into that one. It seems my system has completely forgotten about my other, working, installation.Is there a process for recovering the boot information and setting it up such that I can go back to using my other installation?

Screen Flashing And Freezing

Aug 23, 2012

i recently had to reinstall 7, because the computer kept crashing in the middle of the simplest things. say, i'd be reading a wikipedia article, or watching a Internet video, or playing a game, and the screen would all of the sudden start flashing for a few seconds, then it would just go black (70% of the time.) on occasion, it wouldn't go black, but instead becomes the color of the most prevalent color on the screen. ex: i was playing a game, and took a look at the map, which was mostly yellow. at that moment the screen would become yellow and freeze, not letting me move my mouse or ctrl+alt+del. sometimes a blue crash screen would appear, sometimes it would just restart on its own.so, anyway, i realize reinstalling windows has little to do with the above problem, but i was hoping it would fix it, and also i needed a new start, since my organizational skills were pretty bad before. once reinstalled, i had updated almost everything possible, via windows update, or manually.at first, i thought my wishes were fulfilled, because my pc was running faster and more smoothly than ever before. (i did have a little hiccup with sound card, but that's behind me now.) but, no. the black screen happened again today. that was such a low blow i wanted to jump off the balcony... i decided that the only thing i haven't updated was the bios, and, true, it was last updated in august 2010, 3 months before i got this pc. that hasn't helped one bit - screen's still flashing and freezing.

also, i've just noticed that after a few flashes the computer doesn't freeze at first, but the mouse pointer either disappears altogether or becomes thin vertical dotted line. but it still freezes after a few minutes. that's something new, but not an improvement. hopefully that helps you.[code] a quick flash or two, mouse pointer becomes a dotted line, and screen goes white (doesn't happen a lot, but has before) after 1-2 minutes. i was running 16-bit true color this time, but apparently that makes no difference.

Flashing Underscore On Boot?

Jul 15, 2012

Recently I got this problem on my Acer Aspire 5742G where my laptop gets stuck on black screen with a flashing underscore at the top left corner right after the Acer splash screen. I can get into Bios but I can't get into safe mode (normally I could press F8 to get into Advanced Boot Options but this no longer works).

The problem started when I decided to try out Windows 8 Preview a few days ago. I managed to set up dual boot windows 7 home premium/windows 8 preview and it worked fine. But I only gave 20GB to the windows 8 partition and I decided I needed more. I thought it's a simple matter to transfer space by shrinking the volume of the win7 partition, format the new unallocated space and extend the volume of the win8 partition. But after I did this, all the partitions apart from the recovery one became "simple partitions" instead of "primary partitions". I don't know the difference between the two terms and I didn't think it was a problem so I just turned off the laptop once I finished with it. The next time I turned it on the problem started. Could this have caused problems with the hard drive? It's the only thing I can think of that caused the problem.

Unfortunately I can't find my recovery disc either.

Black Screen Flashing While Using Aero

Jan 20, 2010

when my windows 7 ultimate computer starts up, the screen flashes black, just for a second which is ok. But if i enable aero and use the aero effects then the computer screen flashes black for a second again, everytime i use any aero effect! e.g minimize, thumbnails, show desktop, open files.

I upgraded from windows vista.

my cousins also have windows 7 ultimate and they use the aero effects without any problems.
their computer has A NVIDA G-Force, but not sure about the model, although it will be quite new because they bought their computer a week ago.

is it because of my graphics card? i checked the windows 7 upgrade advisor and it said my graphics card is compatible.

my graphics card is :

VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM, and i have a Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 @ 1.8Ghz(i've been meaning to overclock but my mobo's rubbish :$)

ASUS X83v Flashing At Bottom Of Screen?

Oct 10, 2010

I recently just installed Windows 7 on my wife's laptop. It previously had Vista 64 bit and now of course has the 7 64 bit version.Everything has gone pretty smooth. There were a handful of drivers that needed installed but otherwise smooth. The only thing that remains finicky is sometimes I get flashing at the bottom of the screen only, like only taskbar width. I had it stopped after installing the newest driver from Nvidia but then when I ran the benchmark test from Windows for its rating system purely out of curiosity it started again. Initially once every 2 seconds now about every ten, and sometimes longer pauses inbetween. Which leads me to believe that it may be to taxing of the video card and it just glitches out when taxed. Although it seems it is probably a setting on the card/resolution/refresh rate/driver that probably needs adjusted to get it out of this little spat since it never had a single issue when I used Vista.

Computer Won't Start And Stuck At Flashing _ Cursor Screen

Dec 23, 2011

My computer was working fine a couple days ago and all of a sudden got a terrible Trojan that would spam me with random IE ads. So I ran ad-aware and it got rid of the problem. I went to bed relieved but woke up to my computer in a black screen with just a single cursor "_" flashing. I figured it was a fluke and restarted. same problem.

So I decided to open up the computer and check the SATA drive connections. Everything looked fine but the problem still persisted. I decided that it could just be slot number 1 and moved it to slot 3. The computer would start up and go to desktop but all of my icons disappeared and the computer would just hang if I tried to open any file or go on the internet or any program.

Obviously, it was because the SATA drive was now in a new slot?? I'm not sure. But I put it back into slot 1 and went into the BIOS setup and sure enough, it was a "not detected" for slot 1. The main HDslot.

I tried to reset the BIOS using the jumper method and it still just hangs on black screen with cursor "_" flashing...

Specs:
- windows 7 ultimate edition
- Intel duel core @ 3.2ghz
- 4gb RAM
- Asus P5Q-PRO motherboard
- geforce 8800 GTX graphics card

Turn Off The Visual Feedback (flashing) On Screen Keyboard?

Jun 30, 2011

I have started using an ASUS slate and find the Windows on-screen keyboard almost impossible to use because of the way the keys flash after you touch them (or even hover over them) - the fade delay is way too long resulting in a mass of flashing keys when typing with any sort of speed. I would have expected this to be a setting under the keyboard options or general personalization but no amount of digging or Google searching has turned anything up for me. Does anyone know how I can turn this off or at least reduce the fade delay time?

Laptop Hanging On Black Screen (flashing Cursor Top Left)?

Aug 11, 2011

Have my Dad's Fujitsu Esprimo laptop to uninstall Searchqu, Bandoo etc for him which were causing problems. That went fine, computer shut down and tried to install Windows updates. Now won't restart.Hangs on Fujitsu screen with options for "<ESC>: Diagnostic Screen, <F2>:BIOS Setup, <F12>: Boot Menu" and Blue progress bar. Progress reaches about 75% complete VERY slowly (hour) but then hangs on black screen with white cursor in top left corner. Been like that for 2 hours now.Have tried solutions from Google - click F2 then re-setting boot order in Bios to "default order", click F12 and choose different options, tried F8 for safe mode, but F8 doesn't do anything.I don't know if it's related to Searchqu, to the updates or if it's just a creepy coincidence and the computer itself is actually broken. He doesn't have a Windows7 installation cd.

Black Screen With Flashing Cursor Cannot Access Safe Mode?

Oct 10, 2012

Earlier this week my HP desktop forced shutdown while browsing the Internet using IE9. Upon reboot the HP screen loaded, afterwards a black screen with a flashing cursor appeared. I had used CTRL+ALT+DEL function in which my computer rebooted.Showed the HP screen and immediately showed the black screen with a flashing cursor. Again no mouse cursor was available. I performed a diagnostics check in which the CPU, HDD, etc. checked out, restored BIOS to factory settings, even placing the HDD as priority 1. I inserted the Windows recovery disk and attempted a start up repair, and a restore point with no favorable results. Through the recovery disks command prompt I accessed all my music and documents, so I assume the hard drive is still functioning. I'm thinking as a last resort of performing a repartitioning of my hard drive and performing a clean install of Windows 7.

Computer Stuck At Black Screen With Flashing White Underscore?

Oct 21, 2012

Today I started up my pc and after the BIOS screen (the place where you can press f8-f11 for various options) it went to a black screen with a blinking underscore in the upper left corner and stayed there indefinitely. It did this even after reboot.

I tried using the diagnostic tool and everything it tested passed (including HDD). I did this test twice and the same results were produced.

I also googled for similar problems (one topic mentioned that the op disassembling his computer and physically tapping a chip on the motherboard caused it to work) but I have no experience with taking apart my computer and i do not want to break it accidentally. I did however chance upon a topic advising him to do a CMOS reset which apparently helped that op, so i looked through the various options on the BIOS page. There was one option (f10 I think) mentioning CMOS on its fourth sub-window, so i pressed the reset option but I'm mot entirely sure if I used the right function.

I uninstalled kaspersky pure and replaced kaspersky pure for kaspersky anti-virus yesterday, dont know if this was the cause. I am using windows 7 64 bit.

Dec 19, 2011

one day it suddenly crashed while i was watching a movie. it displayed random patterns on screen. kinda like part of the image from the video is on the screen then a black strip and random colors. I restarted the unit to safe mode and left it on and browsed the net and downloaded some big files for how many hours and nothing happened.. there are also times when windows is still loading with the windows logo on screen, it crashes. there are also times when the login screen is displayed and it crashes. it just crashes randomly! so i tried to reformat it. i deleted the partitions and created a new one, formatted it then fresh installed windows 7 ( my previous OS is windows 7 by the way) and started installing the basic drivers and after a few hours, it crashed again...thinking that the driver installed might not be compatible, i tried another fresh install of windows (same execution, delete partition, create, install OS) and this time, without installing the drivers, it crashed again after a few hours... sometimes it crashes immediately after turning it on from cold start!

Changing The Windows 7 Boot Screen Back To Vista's Boot Screen?

Nov 18, 2011

I find that the Windows 7 boot screen slows down the boot process on my machine. Is there a way to restore the old Vista scrolling loading bar? I know it's there as my netbook uses it.

How To Repair Blue Screen And Freezing Error On Screen?

May 3, 2012

Blue screen and freezing. This is happening frequently but never has any regularity to it. Sometimes happens after a couple of days and sometimes after a couple of minutes. Also sometimes with only one browser window open and sometimes with 15 or more. Happens with both chrome and firefox. Has not happened with other programs as this lapy only gets used for surfing/email/forums etc. Sometimes happens while the computer is sitting idle right after boot. Very strange.
