Can't boot up or repair - goes to black screen with white cursor

Hello. I am having a similar problem, too. I have an L555D-S7005 running Win7 x64. I've had it 2years and in the past few months having trouble with booting up. I've created a system image and have always been able to recover - had to once a week - until now. I've tried repair disk, F8-repair, heck I've even tried to re-install Win7 (retail Home premium) but only get to a black screen with a white cursor (which I can move). I've tried resetting my BIOS by removing battery an unplugging a/c and holding power button for 30 secs and still only get this black screen with white cursor. I can enter my BIOS but only can get to black screen. Very frustrated - Ive never NOT been able to fix before now. Please help.

Re: Can't boot up or repair - goes to black screen with white cursor

I have the same problem on my L505D.  It won't boot up normally, in repair mode, or in safe mode.  It won't boot from a USB boot volume, or a CD-ROM.  It will advance to where a windows logo should be appearing, then stop booting.

 

Before this happened, the computer was getting slower and slower to respond to any commands.

 

Any help?

Greeting!

I have a similar model "L455-S5008".  Motherboard # "K000093580".

I have a post about it on the video section. Please look at the pic I uploaded & tell me what it is.

My client's system does the same thing except it has no cursor just a black screen & all power to the laptop board. Along with  dvd/rw, wireless,HDD & power indicators illuminated. It just powers on & off own its own with no response when I press the esc or F10 buttons like some models do & cause it to stay running. This is a pic of the small chip.

I called Toshiba Tech service and was informed this is a hard drive failure. Went to

Best Buy and bought a new drive ... must be SATA for $65.00 and I replaced it (very simple). Had to

re-install Win7, but laptop id running fine again!
