  • Satellite L300D starts in a white screen with the mouse cursor


    Asked by my friends to help them solve their L300D. Their son had him and they are not sure of what he did, but now when it loads in VIsta, all they get is a black screen with a cursor of mouse in the middle. The slider looks as if it was a less than normal display resolution.

    I thought that this would be easily fixed by running a restore, but it did the same thing when I load restore (via the holding company 0 at startup) and even the copy of Windows 7, I tried to install as well.

    I think it might be a hardware problem, but before bringing them to contact Toshiba Service for warranty repair, I thought I could post it here and see if anyone has suggestions on what it could be.


    Hey good buddy, if the same question is displayed if you load the function of food and also with Windows 7 I think that it s a hardware problem.
    You can try to load the BIOS default settings maybe it works.

    To be honest, I think the best way is, you contact the nearest authorized service provider. Technicians can check the mobile and Exchange material, if there is a hardware problem.

Tried to boot with my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit installation disk so and entered commissioning repair - no problem. Tried system restore and it went successfully, however after clicking restart is again the same thing!

  • WIN8 - no desktop, black screen with the mouse pointer. Manager tasks and the login screen work.

    As usual I left my computer and after a few minutes, he fell asleep. Next morning, I had moved to the mouse, computer wakes, but I got a black screen with the mouse pointer. I hit CTRL + Alt + Delete and screen with Task Manager option appeared. I stop computer and rebooted. Welcome screen and logon is displayed. After you enter the password and click on submit that the screen becomes black with only the pointer visible mouse. I don't have not installed anything recently. Can you help me find my office?

    OK, I had the same problem. I thought that if you have a pointer and can launch Manager tasks and all programs through its file > new task, then the hull works correctly. No office and no taskbar mean that something is wrong with explorer.exe. Now, he has corrupted not necessarily, may not properly launched.

    Here's what I did:

    1. I opened the Task Manager, the Details tab

    2. I killed all explorer.exe on the list

    3. just to be safe, I also tried to kill dwm.exe but it will be may not be necessary (it never goes away)

    4. I started the new instance of explorer.exe via file > run

    And voila, I had the desktop and the taskbar.

  • Pavilion beatsaudio 11-n012na: white screen with the AC adapter is plugged in.

    laptop worked fine with W8.1, but after installing windows, 10 screen is blank with power supply is plugged in. Laptop starts up OK, but with a white screen, pulling the adapter allows image appear, no other problems. Battery charge OK but cannot be used while charging. This didn't happen with windows 8.1


    I had the same problem.

    If you go into the power settings (right click on the battery icon), select additional power settings and change the power plan that you use.  The brightness slider is the wrong way autour if you selected it to its maximum intensity is in fact completely black.  Move the cursor to the other end and save the settings (nothing will happen as long as you save the settings).  The reason it's ok on battery is that the cursor is somewhere in the middle.

    I hope this helps.

  • CHKDSK replaced the security id not valid with default security id & showed a black screen with the mouse cursor

    Hi you

    After running CHKDSK, it said replacement of the security id invalid with the default security id in windows 7 64 bit

    After that it's over, he just showed a black screen with the mobile mouse cursor!

    I searched but did not find the answers on Microsoft

    Please help me


    Thanks for posting your question on the Microsoft community.

    We need more information about the issue so that we can help you better.

    Check the drive run at Windows startup?

    Thank you for details on the issue.

    This message is displayed because the specified file has an invalid security ID. Each file on a NTFS or FAT volume has security what ID assigned. The ID assigned to the data file does not match the ID assigned to the security data stream file ($SDS). There is a mismatch of Ids. CHKDSK replaced the invalid security ID.

    Black screen with cursor may appear due to corrupted display driver.

    I suggest you try using the steps described in this article and check.
    Why my screen is black when I start Windows 7?

    Important notes:
    Serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    Running chkdsk on the drive if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data can be lost.

    When you use system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    I hope this information helps.
