Clean install of Win7: blank screen with cursor after starting windows

Hi Guys and Gals,

My old HDD was fried so I decided to use my External HDD to boot off. After reformatting the drive I have installed it into my laptop and have attempted to install Windows 7 64bit and its all going great until after the starting windows screen and then it just turns black with the cursor.

What I have tried so far....

- I have reset the BIOS to defalt
-Cleared the CMOS
- Checked the RAM (even left 1 2gig stick in and tried that?)

Im honestly stumped by this and I dont know what else it could possibly be?

Any suggestions? Anything at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Where did you get the installer? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Start with the latest official ISO burned to DVD or written to stick with the tool in Steps 1/2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. You'll want to also follow those steps in tutorial to get a perfect install.

If fresh installer fails try wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command from installer Command Line acccessing DISKPART At PC Startup . Then close Command Box, click Install now, follow these steps to Clean Install Windows 7 . Report back any error message and at what step it fails.
