Restarts with black screen/white cursor (non-blinking), SAFEmode works
I have a Dell Inspiron, not always but sometimes on start up it restarts to a black screen with a white cursor. Safe mode does work. I don't know why it sometimes does this or what makes it stop. I have tried just letting it try to load up for as long as an hour with no change, sometimes restarting has fixed it but sometimes (like now, it has done nothing no matter how many times I've tried).
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

I am a new member of the forum.
We had a similiar problem with Server 2008 Foundation in last week.
We could not even get into safe mode. The shared files on the network was accessable its just that we couldn't see anything to log in and make changes.
We end up running commands after commands and still no success.
To my understanding this is common in Windows Vista and Server 2008 which runs on the same kernal as Windows 7.
We used a docking station to copy the data of the drive and even tried cloning the drive with Clonezilla.
Later we had no choice but to reload the machine with Server 2008 R2 Std and restored the data.
So if you are able to log into the machine I suggest you copy what's important to you and reload.
We have even tried check disc and made some small changes in the registry.
This issue is called black screen of death.
Hope this info helps.
