Windows 7 login problem

Hey everyone, today I turned on my laptop to find that the login screen does not apear. The computer will load the first boot screen but when the login screen should show up, a black screen with my cursor apears. I cannot login normaly or through safe mode. Ive tried all the advanced boot option with no avail. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    • For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
Let either run to completion undisturbed.

To find your USB drive letter type in

Diskpart then press [Enter]

Then type in

List volume [ENTER]

Look for something that says Removable

Take note of the drive letter then type in Exit press [enter] you should see a message say leaving Diskpart ...

Then type in the drive letter with FRST.exe or FRST64.exe

X:\frst64.exe

Or

X:\frst.exe

Change the x with your actual letter of the USB drive .
