Hello,

My other computer recently had the same issues as many others but the difference is that f8 doesn't work. I've repeatedly tapped in at the startup and the advanced configuration/settings will not open.
Thanks

Thank you
Try the following:

STEPS:
  • 1. Boot up as normal, and wait until you see the cursor on the black screen
  • 2. When you're booted, press Ctrl+Alt+Del
  • 3. In the Processes tab of the Task Manager, find explorer.exe
  • 4. If you find one, right-click it and select End Process
  • 5. Select File ? Run
  • 6. Enter explorer and press Enter - the desktop should show up
  • 7. After it has finished loading, reboot
  • 8. This time, your desktop will show up without the black screen



If it doesn't work :
  • Go to BIOS
  • Load default settings
  • Make sure that your hard drive is detected in the BIOS
  • Set the first boot device as "Hard disk"
  • Save the settings and exit from the BIOS.

Thank you, xpcman 46

I'm very thankful to ur steps....I can't get my files Back ...Thank You so much
Thanq dude
Thanks I got my desktop,but after reboot again, black screen with cursor
for me just like Ninza. But the problem is not to get this failure solved. The real problem is to understand why explorer goes corrupted ! If we don't find it, the failure will again occur.

Hello,

Try this 1

Go to BIOS --> Load default settings --> Make sure that your hard drive is

detected in the BIOS --> Set the first boot device as "Hard disk" --> Save the

settings and exit from the BIOS.

Good Luck

I've pressed f2 (BIOS?), Loaded the default settings and made that the Hard drive was detected, but I wasn't entirely sure how to set it as the first boot device. I've attempted to do so but it still ended up not working.
Thanks though
worked for me ----> CD-ROM went bad
I think this means that the hdd is corrupted or the mbr (master boot record) is missing. Try using recovery disks or your Windows disk to fix this problem
