    I have the black screen of death and its not fixing.

    Hi, i have had problems with my pc concerning a blank screen with a cursor (B.S.O.D). I have tried to follow youtube tutorials but none of them have worked. The P.C is a couple years old but still works fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Your OP is a little confusing. The title says you get a Black Screen with a cursor. Then you say it is a BSOD, which would be totally different. Then you top it off by saying the computer is a few years old but still works fine.
    You may be mixing up your terms here. A BSOD would be a Blue Screen of Death, which is not a Black Screen. A BSOD is a screen that appears that shows an error message and then usually restarts. There are many reasons for BSOD and it depends on the message.
    A Black Screen of Death is also not what you describe. a Black Screen of Death is total black, no cursor.
    A Black Screen with a cursor means that the computer cannot find the Boot file, either the Windows drive is too low in the boot order, or the boot file is corrupted, or, usually the HDD has failed and needs to be replaced.
    If we are talking about the Dual Booting computer with Windows and Linux, do you get the GRUB Boot loader? Can you boot into Linux? Have you tried to repair GRUB?
