Windows 7: Computer won't boot to GUI

Computer won't boot to GUI

Right, when I start my computer it boots into 7, makes it all the way to where the login screen would appear and just comes up as a black screen with a movable cursor, no sounds, no interaction, nothing.

This isn't the first time this has happened, usually when this happens I'm able to boot into safe mode and restore the computer (the restore point is always the same, critical update installed the last time I used the computer) this time it didn't work and now I can't even get into safe mode.

Specs that I know of

Intel Pentium 2.93GHz
2GB DDR3 RAM
1GB Video RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Dastari, If you would be so kind and tell us the make/model of your PC we may be able to tell you how to get to the manufacturers hidden recovery partition
