Blank Screen with cursor blinking after fresh install of Windows 7 no

Hey i just did a fresh install of windows 7 , everything works perfect till the end. But when my computer restarts nothing shows up just a blank screen with cursor blinking on it :s. .. I reinstalled Windows 7 couple of times but its still the same.



When i connect this hard drive to my other desktop it works totally fine there. Windows start up & works like a charm but not on the other system.



Help would be much appreciated

Might be as simple as a video driver.

We could use your system specs

Can you boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 at bootup?

If it fails when trying to boot into Safe Mode, can you immediately press Shift F10 to open a Command Line, then type: compmgmt.msc

When Mgmt console opens, choose Device Manager, disable display driver then restart to see if it starts.

Can you use your install disk and select repair computer instead of install then go to the command prompt and try greg's suggestion to uninstall display driver?

@myzr7 and gregrocker am in command mode now via System Repair Tool by default its in X:Sources
when i go to Windows > Systemm32 to run compmgmt.msc it says Windows could not find program to run this file :/

like this format is unknown to windows


Thanks

Hi, try typing compmgmtlauncher and see if that helps. Also, try Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation
