Login screen not appearing?
Hi everyone, first time post here so bear with me
When I boot up my computer, it displays the animated windows7 logo as normal, but where it would normally display the login screen all I get is a blank screen with the mouse cursor. I've tried all keyboard shortcuts and random clicks to no avail - it stays on that screen for hours with occasional HDD activity.
I've tried booting in safe mode only to encounter exactly the same problem, and have no previous restore points (which I know is a big mistake).
Due to it not starting in safe mode either, I tried to replace the winlogon.exe file from another Windows 7 instillation to no avail - I still get the same problem.
I am able to boot into linux (off my removable HDD) and windows XP (from my secondary internal HDD), so I am led to believe it is a corrupted file or dodgy setting within Windows 7 rather than a hardware fault.
If anyone could shed some light on the situation or suggest what the problem could be, I would be immensely grateful.
Thanks in advance, Laurence
