Windows 7: Black Screen, Mouse Pointer in Center on Bootup

Black Screen, Mouse Pointer in Center on Bootup

Forgive me if this has been answered, please point me toward the thread with the solution if so.

When I boot my computer, I see "Starting Windows". The screen then goes black and the mouse pointer shows up in the middle. The mouse does not move.

I inserted my Windows 7 disc and went into repair. I tried a restore and a repair. Nothing happened. I should note that also my mouse pointer was not functioning at this time, either. That is, the pointer was in the center and the mouse was not moving.

I hear the fan going on, eventually it stops making noise, not to be confused with the computer shutting off. I guess you call that more of an "idle sound".

I checked the connections. Unplugged and replugged in the mouse. No luck.

Thanks.
