"I installed a new interal bluetooth module on a Dell Inspiron 1720. Before doing so, last night, decided to condition the battery by letting it drain down in Windows Vista. I don't know if this caused the Vista boot-up problem, but this morning I just cannot boot it up, with my laptop displaying black screen and flashing cursor."

Besides the situation above, we can also know that Vista is having boot-up problems when:

  • You've got a computer black screen on startup and the power switch light will be green and then turns to orange or amber.
  • You can't see anything on the screen, not even a flashing cursor. Your black screen in Windows has occurred before the Windows logo screen.
  • Your computer does not boot up and there is strange sound from your computer.
