I have a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop and when I start up it shows the Compaq screen and then goes to a black screen with a flashing underscore in the top left corner. Nothing happens after that. The only thing that works is pressing ctrl + alt+ delete restarts it. It shuts off on its own if it is left on for a while. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have the same problem and my F11 key is also not functioning for some reason. If I remove, erase, reformat, reload OS, and reinstall the HDD, will it solve my problem? If so, must I reload Vista or can I put Windows 7 in its place?
