Black Screen with Cursor on startup, Safe mode works
Firstly I'm on Windows 7 64. Over the last few weeks I've noticed that after starting up my laptop, and logging in just fine, the screen would go black for a couple of seconds-- my cursor would appear and I could move it around, but the screen would be black. After 10 seconds or so, the Windows 7 GUI would load just fine and there I would be.
I restarted my PC at 5AM this morning and it did the same. All I did at that point was send an e-mail via Gmail and shut it down again. At 2PM I went to startup my PC and everything went as usual except the PC never left that black screen with the responsive cursor.
I searched here and found that problem many times, but with one difference-- my PC starts fine in Safe Mode.
I used Advanced System Care to fix some registry errors and am currently running a Malwarebytes full scan.
It might be worth noting that I recently installed Batman: Arkham Asylum and as it was frequently crashing, followed some advice to enable everything at startup, which I did, fixing my game problem. That was around the time the black screen first started showing up, and I assumed it was a result of more things taking place during Windows startup.
Thanks in advance.
