Windows 7: Booting into a never ending black screen.

Booting into a never ending black screen.

Well I've installed Windows 7 over my previous Windows XP.
The installation went smooth and without a hitch.

I've completed out the user accounts setup etc, but the problem is booting into Windows 7.

Basically, I turn my laptop on, it goes though it's boot diagnostics etc, then to the Windows 7 boot logo with the 4 atom things :b

It eventually finishes loading and then it takes me to a black screen where nothing happens. I can't see my cursor or anything. Then I hard restart.

However, I avoid this by booting into Safe Mode, or specifically Safe Mode with Networking (I'm typing this currently in Safe Mode).

I've checked my dxdiag and theres currently no data for my Intel GMA965 graphics chip.

I honestly have no idea, and a mate of mine who has the exact same laptop has Windows 7 installed and functioning perfectly.

Also, is it possible to force the application Windows Update to run when in Safe Mode?

Any help is greatly appreciated (:

Cheers,
Tony.

(Attached is a copy of my DxDiag, for those who can make use out of it.)

Okay, disregard basically all of my 1st post.

I've managed to get Windows 7 booting in non safe mode by sheer luck.

Now the problem is, I'm getting a weird permissions error everytime I try to open anything.

The attached screenshots should explain.

Hi Eridani, welcome to the forums.

I would download build 7100 from Microsoft HERE

It is about 120% more stable than 7000 & has a much larger driver database. Plus, 7000 is only usable for another 2 months.
