    Team,

    Suddenly my Dell Inspiron 5110 laptop won't boot, after dell screen, just a cursor blinking in the top left. I tried restart several times but no use.

    I had run the diagnostic tests, test results are passed. Also i did Thorough test mode on Hard disk, results are passed.

    Just want to add, i am running windows 10 in this laptop from 2015 (no issues till now). And yesterday i have uninstalled the Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller -0.96, because its not working and i reinstalled it, still that slot didn't work. So, after that i shut down the system. Next day this thing happens, won't boot after dell screen. Is this problem related to this ?


    Can any one help me on this issue ?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the laptop forums site

    You will need to try to restore your system, it looks like windows has
    failed at the boot section.

    The flashing icon is a good sign it indicates that it's waiting to receive hard drive
    system instructions.

    You need to acquire a recovery disc or installation disk.

    This is a link to obtaining one if you don't own one:

    Hi,

    The best way to find out if the issue is related to your Operating system is to try and boot it using a potable OS such as Linux.. If it boots then you know the problem is with your OS if it does not boot you have hardware issues.
