Windows 7: Black screen after the logon screen

Black screen after the logon screen

Hi everyone! I was installing a new theme from custopack tools and suddenly my dell x64 laptop (Build 7601 windows 7 sp1 installed) crashed on me. Most probably due to the loose power adapter wire. Now i cant get it back to work. It goes fine till the logon screen but then the screen turns black. I can see the mouse pointer. Same thing happens when i login with safemode settings. Anyone familiar with this!

You know we could run a lot of complicated procedures, but I think a repair install is your quickest direct route to just looking at your desktop again.

Just curious what other options i have here! I tried logging in thru minixp from hiren's boot cd. There i tried to run custopack to install the theme properly. Thought it might just patch the defected/ missing files. But the software wont install anything cs it treats the os as xp not 7.

I'm telling you a repair install will preserve your files and get you booting normally again.
The only other thing I can think of to fix the kind of file damage I would expect from the scenario you described with the power chord is a sfc command.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

but it doesn't sound like you can make use of that in your currrent situation.

I cannot get to my desktop as this black screen is preventing me to do so. It doesn't even give me enough time to log in! It happened once before but it magically started to work the other time. This never happened when I was still using the stock 640GB HDD that the laptop came with. So...
