    Netbook with black screen and white cursor no matter what

    I'm trying to fix a Samsung Netbook for a friend.

    Symptoms:

    See the loading screen then just get a black screen with a moveable white cursor

    Have tried:

    Restoring from recovery partition - I start this and I get the black screen again! I don't get anything past the loading files screen
    Install Windows 7 from a known working USB stick - Black screen again!
    Safe Mode
    VGA mode etc etc
    Reset BIOS to defaults

    All roads lead back to the black screen apart from a live Ubuntu install on a USB stick which does boot into a full desktop.



    Now installing Linux is not an option so any ideas, this should be a simple reinstall really
