Windows 7 Black Screen Of Death

I turned my computer on monday to find that, after the Windows loading screen, everything is black. The cursor is there and will move around, but right clicking does nothing, Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing, safe mode does nothing, everything that i have tried failed and i still can see the login screen. Monday morning i turned it on to check something and then i turned it off before going to school when i returned back thats when it started. Does anyone have a solution please don't tell me that its hopeless =(
cause my laptop is my life.

Thanks in Advance!

Unfortunate that you lost everything. Mention to your friend that the system could have been backed up through the recovery options: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Damn it! Does that mean that there is no way to get it back?

There are recovery programs out there:

Rescue Kit Free Edition - CNET Download.com

PhotoRec - CGSecurity

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download


The first one will restore the old partition, so you would lose your current setup. Probably not recommended.

The second will restore your files, but not within the structure they were originally in. You will have to sort through them and determine which files you want to keep, which is a very lengthy process.

I am not sure about Recuva as I've never used it myself, but the screenshots seem to show a directory layout and recovered files.

That's alright, that probably is not the best way to go, anyway. Recuva seems to be your best option at this time.

PhotoRec - CGSecurity can recover more files, but it will take some time and you will have to sort through the files yourself.

There are still other recovery methods, but they cost money. You should try the free trials to see if they can even access the data. Also, make sure not to install any Windows updates or any software, don't load any data into your user files, etc. as the more changes you make to the system, the more you will overwrite your old data.

File and data recovery software to unformat, undelete files. Recover deleted files and recover formatted disk or corrupt drives - EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

Recover files from formatted partition, deleted partition, unreadable drive, camera card, memory sticks |iCare Data Recovery
