Computer boots to black screen with just the cursor, pc stuck at black screen.

February 7, 2012

So you boot your computer and it gets past the loading windows screen and then sits at the black screen, sometimes with the cursor, sometimes without. It never gets past this point….sucks right? try this

1. Press f8 while pc is starting up (if it gets to loading windows, just shut it down and try again)

2. Select safe mode

3. If all is fine and dandy and it loads into windows, go to the start menu, and right click on computer, select properties.

4. Click device manager (on left) and go to display drivers.

5. Right click on the video driver under the drop down menu and then right click and select uninstall.

6. Do not delete the driver software, not a big deal.

7. Restart the pc and hopefully it should load right in now.

Hope this helps. It could be other things, but this is a good place to start, let me know if you have any issues, would be glad to help.
