I have an acer computer with windows vista and when I restarted the computer I get a black screen with cursor. When I tried to use the recovery disk for the computer I got a black screen. Please Help!!
NEVER REMOVE the internal battery! That will drastically reduce your motherboards life-span! However, in your current situation I'd advise you to re-install windows vista. Clearly there is a problem with your formatting, whether its corrupt or not, just re-install vista :)
