Windows 7: Black screen start up after system restore

Black screen start up after system restore

Recently I have system restored to a day earlier. When I started windows normally it goes past the starting windows screen then goes black with my mouse coursor hovering over a black screen. I can't login to my computer. I also had a BSOD today and I was able to get into safe mode. Now, after system restoring, I can't. Last time this happened the computer man said he found something on the internet to fix it and that the problem was a file became corrupt during the restore. This has happened before. I dont know how to fix it though. Help please!

I realize that this isn't much help, but there's literally thousands of possible causes for the black screen issue.
I would suggest using System Restore to restore to an earlier date (if possible).
If that doesn't work, then I'd suggest backing up your stuff and installing Win7 fresh.
