I have a laptop that I never turn off because it usually will not load windows when I switch it back on. Instead it goes straight to the black screen with blinking cursor in top left hand corner. There is no opportunity to get into BIOS.
When I first became aware of the problem I read that removing and then re-inserting the hard drive might fix the problem. Usually this does the trick, however not always. It also seems that removing the and re-inserting the ram helps.
To try and fix this fault for good I bought a solid state hard drive and did a reinstall of windows 7. The problem persisted. I therefore bought new RAM but this has not fixed the problem.
So, it seems my operating system, hard drive and RAM are all good ...what else could be causing this issue?
