Windows 7: Black screen after login, won't system restore

Black screen after login, won't system restore

I have Windows 7. Earlier, my computer was acting funny after trying to open some videos from my camera that I had connected. I retarted hoping it would act normal. I got the opposite. Every time I try to start up, it goes to a black screen after I put in my password. I will not let me open task manager or anything. I see a cursor that I can move around, but just a black screen. I've tried to google the problem (I am currently in safe mode) and tons of people said to do a system restore. Problem is, it says I haven't created any restore points and to open up system protection.

Here lies ANOTHER problem in my awesome string of luck. When I click on it, the system protection tab is not there. It's completely missing. I tried going to start, right clicking computer and going to properties. Guess what? It's not there either like it should be.

Does anyone know how to fix the black screen problem, OR figure out how to set system restore up??

Thanks in advance
