Windows 7 Boots to black screen w/ cursor (also does disc check and te

Basically I woke up this morning to my computer sitting at a black screen with the cursor visible
I'm able to move the cursor but do nothing else
I rebooted my computer my manually shutting it off and then it started up as it would normally but did this disc check:

from there it moves back to the black screen with the cursor

I again restarted and booted in safe mode this time
I was then able to reach windows and tried to do a system restore to an earlier point
When i did this i was greeted with this error

runtaylor,

wonderful start to the day!

all is not lost.

in all that info about your system, I missed whether it is a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7 and the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Why is that important?

I would like for you to go to a Win 7 system which works and which also has a 32 bit verion installed, if you have the 32 bit version installed--or to go to a 64 bit system if that is what is installed.

Now you will make a System Repair Disc on that system and here is how:
CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button

=========================================
=========================================

If you have a Win 7 DVD, then you can skip that step.

What you are going to do is:
Boot up from one or the other.
Get to the System Repair options
Run a System Restore NOT!!! a System Repair.

We've got tutorials for both cases, but let me see if I can find a write-up which may get you there easier:

here's one of the two:
SYSTEM RECOVERY / REPAIR OPTIONS

USING YOUR SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

Insert Win 7 SYSTEM REPAIR DISC into the optical reader.

Shutdown your computer.
Power up your computer.

A dialog window will appear:
Select your Language Preference | NEXT button

Select desired operating system if more than 1 shown |
Use recovery tools... Radio
button | NEXT button


Select the desired repair option
Startup Repair
System Restore
System Image Recovery
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Command Prompt


===============================
===============================
For Startup Repair
1) Click on System Repair and run system repair
2) Reboot
3) Repeat this sequence 3 times



===============================
===============================
For System Restore
Choose a different restore point radio button | NEXT
Show more restore points
checkbox (lower left) |
Highlight the desired restore point |
Scan for affected programs
(lower right) |
When you find a usable restore point, then CLOSE | NEXT |
YES
| Your computer will restart to finish the restore |
After the computer has restarted, FINISH


===============================

===============================
To restore your computer using an image you created using Win 7 Backup
Click on System Image Recovery


===============================
===============================
NOTE:
You may need to tell your computer to boot from the optical drive.
Power Up your computer.

Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn’t offer this capability, try tapping the F2 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.

===============================
===============================

and here is the other



USING SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS USING A WIN 7 DVD

1) Insert Win 7 DVD into optical reader.
2) Shutdown computer.
3) Boot up computer from the Win 7 DVD
If your computer doesn’t boot from the optical drive, then
Immediately after pushing your Power ON button,
Immediately start hitting the F12 key
Choose CD/DVD from the menu

If your computer doesn’t offer this capability, then try tapping F2 key instead of the F12 key to get to the BIOS to change the boot order.
4) Select your Language Preference, NEXT button
5) Click on Repair your Computer
6) Select your operating system, click on NEXT
7) Select the desired repair option
  • Startup Repair
  • System Restore
  • System Image Recovery
  • Windows Memory Diagnostic
  • Command Prompt
For Startup Repair
1) Click on System Repair and run system repair
2) Reboot
3) Repeat this sequence 3 times

For System Restore

To restore your computer using an image you created using Win 7 Backup
