Many of the threads I have found on here regarding being stuck on the starting windows screen did not cover my issue. My computer was running very slow yesterday while I was playing a game, and my internet browsing was also slow. I started to shut it down for a quick restart and nothing really wanted to shut down, so I forced it down manually. Ever since then, the computer does not want to move past the starting windows screen.
It prompts me to either run the system repair or start normally. System repair takes me to a black screen, no cursor, and just sits there. Starting normally makes me stay stuck on the starting windows screen. No amount of time makes it move forward. I cannot get into my system to run an OS repair from the disk, I can't access Safe Mode, I can't log in to get administrator rights, I can't do ANYTHING. No amount of time letting it sit unused will make it "cool down" - I thought maybe my fans running a little hot and loud was a problem.
Can someone help?
Wanted to add as well - being as how I'm not very computer savvy when it comes to these things, I can't give you a good idea of what I'm running in the system. I built it through iBuyPower a few years back, and since I can't access anything on my system, I can't do any sort of diagnostic or system analysis to post that kind of information.
