xboxhaxorz, are you able to move the mouse once Windows starts with the cursor and black screen?

williamsage please start your own thread as I am not sure your problem is related at this time. You are welcome to continue following this thread as well, but you should try to get dedicated help from the experts on here.

I am wondering if you have a virus. Try scanning for viruses with the
BitDefender rescue CD
and
Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta | Microsoft Connect
which do not require Windows to run. You will have to put them on either a CD/DVD or USB and run them by making sure your CD/DVD drive or USB drive is set to boot first through the BIOS.
