Specs: Windows Vista
Everytime i try and turn on my laptop it goes straight to a black screen and flashing "_" in the top left hand corner.
I am able to click F2 and F12, nothing else. Also i cannot access the task bar manager.

I have a dell Inspirion 1545

Also i cannot find the disk that came with it.....is there a downloadable one???

PLEASE HELP!

Did you recently install (or automatically install) a Windows Update? There are a LOT of google hits regarding "black screen of death" & appears to have been caused by an update.
