Hello

 

I have a problem with an ASUS Eee PC notebook. It is running Win 7 starter. When i start the system it goes through the normal setup until it gets to the windows startup screen it then goes to a Black screen with a mouse curser. I have no access to the system then. This also happens in safemode. Any help with this issue would be appreciated.

 

Regards Demonseed

All I can think of right now is to make a system restore using the Windows 7 Disc, if you have one.

 

You can follow this method in the link below.

If I'm not mistaken this notebook came with Linux installed?

 

This laptop is listed as not having a optical drive, did you install the Windows 7 Starter via a flash drive?

 

Since this goes through the POST and BIOS setup we can pretty much rule out this being a problem with the motherboard.  Is your hdd recognized in the BIOS?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for all your replies I have been able to to do a restore to factory settings using F9 on startup.

The system did come with windows 7 Starter installed.
