Windows 7: Black screen after logon....

Black screen after logon....


I am recently trying to use a theme for my laptop. but here's what happened. after all that i did, black screen appears after i logon at the start up.

This is my second time to use a theme other than the factory default. At first it was successful. but i wanted to do more (too much editing happened). So i tried to change the logon screen and then it worked. the next thing i did was to install a new program (photoshop). then when i restarted my laptop, it started to hang.

At first it was repaired by windows, but upon repair, my theme went back into a classic theme. all default themes work but not those which i installed. if i use the theme i installed it reverts into a classic theme.

So attempting to change that, i downloaded a theme installer (an easier way to change explorer.exe and other files needed editing for the theme to work). I pressed reset to original files. then my taskbar just disappeared. and i cant access my computer, or even run a command promt.

I restarted my laptop and after i logon in the startup, it just goes black with a mouse on the screen.

Startup Repair

This is only option, I can think of on the top of head, when you can't fully access your computer and you don't want to do a complete reinstall of your system.

Hope this helps,

I cannot get to my desktop as this black screen is preventing me to do so. It doesn't even give me enough time to log in! It happened once before but it magically started to work the other time. This never happened when I was still using the stock 640GB HDD that the laptop came with. So...
