Windows 7: WIndows boot error black screen

WIndows boot error black screen

I cant get my computer to boot into safe mode by pressing f8 on startup so I changed the setting in msconfig. The computer turns on but I get a black screen. The monitor was working fine until I tried this.

I have tried windows cd but cannot see any thing on the screen to select repair. Is there a way to remotely change msconfig back? I can access the network through another computer but do not see any options there. I was trying to remove a malware program in safe mode when all this happened.

any help is appreciated.

Can you boot into BIOS?

Cause if you can, just put in your install DVD and run Setup from that, then see if you can do a system restore or if msconfig runs from cmd (by typing in start msconfig)

Can't see anything on screen. Hear computer booting up but no picture. Tried pressing all kinds of buttons in hopes that something would happen but nothing. Really frustrating.

Thanks though.

Derp! I have no idea how I missed you mentioning you already tried running the setup disk... My bad.

Making changes in msconfig will have no effect on seeing POST screen or entering bios, this is all done before windows attempts to load

If you cannot see POST or enter bios then your problem lies with either the hardware in your machine or your monitor, I would check all leads/cables to monitor between the two and if you still have no picture try plugging your monitor into another pc or laptop to double check it is working ok

tried all the connections, work fine. It must be the malware attacking my bios as it worked great until i tried to put in safe mode.'
