Idk what happened but my computer was working fine after I was watching a movie on it and the next day I wake up this random issue occurs where windows would start up completely normal but right before it brings you to the screen you login it gives a black screen with only a movable cursor..I usually fix the computers in the house and I tried everything


Update: okay I did some memory diagnostics, but after restart the pc doesn't even boot up anymore, after the dell logo screen loads up the pc just stays on a black screen with a little blinking bar on the top left and no I can't access anything other then bios menu or the computer starts making this loud beeping sound if I click anything else..I'm using a latitude D830 windows 7 32 bit I believe, this is one of my old laptops I was using to try to help my better one cuZ it broke too and it has that 0x00000xe9 unexpected I/O error has occurred and I haven't found a solution :(

Doing a serch on the net for beep codes might help some.

How many beeps are you getting?

 

Please post the type of beeps you are hearing.  Ex: 1 beep followed by 2 beeps...

 

Below are the beep codes.

It's not exactly on how many beeps, you know wen your computer crashes and you just randomly click on the keyboard and you hear that beep sound ?
It only happens when I spam on the keyboard but idk what to do to fix my pc and I don't have a recovery disk

You try booting it off a live boot disk ?

Kind of smelling like a dead HDD or Os install, btw you might have to change bios settings to boot off a dvd/cd.

Please download SeaTool for DOS to your desktop.  This will make it easy to find the ISO file.
 
When the SeaTools for DOS website opens click on I Accept, then click on the Download button.
 
This download is a ISO image which you will need to burn to a CD or DVD in order to create a bootable disc which can be used to run the diagnostic tests.
 
To burn this ISO file to a CD or DVD use the instructions below.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.
 
burndiskimage2_zps17a9d6ff.png
 
6.  After the image has completed being burned click on Close
 
 
Once the disc is created load it in the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer.
 
If the disc is recognized you should receive a message instructing you to press any key to continue to boot from the disc.
 
Please note:  You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
Please run the short test and include the results in your next post in this topic.
