Windows 7: Black screen during log in

Black screen during log in

I'm stuck with a problem of getting a black screen with no cursor instead of the usual log in screen and it just happened today.

I can go on safe mode with networking without any problems though. I'm using a Nvidia GTX 560 Ti with the latest driver for it (not beta) and I have not installed anything in particular in the days before.

How can I get it to work properly again?

Thanks.

Well, in the past hour, I've re-installed my graphics card driver and that did not work out then I restored my system to how it was yesterday and did not work too.

I still can't find what the problem is.

When you say that you "restored my system" then precisely how did you accomplish the restore?

I restored my system using Window's system restore and I'm on safe mode with networking.

You don't have a problem when you start in Safe Mode, but you do have the problem starting in Normal Mode, correct?

If so, following the instructions in this tutorial may help find what is causing the Normal start-up issue.

You have done something to your system.

Genereally, when this happens the poster knoww what they did. When they tell us,then we have a chance of helping them.

Without were sort of shooting in the dark.

An drastic approach that works is simply a 100% clean install.

If you had made a system image backup, then you would be able to restore the image.

Removing the graphics driver in safe mode might work for you. Just remove it via Device manager.
