Windows 7: Computer Help !!

Computer Help !!

I'm not sure if this is the right section to post but I'll give it a try.

Anyways, I am fixing a computer for a friend and his computer wouldn't start up properly. It would start up with the Windows 7 Boot logo and then go to a black screen with the mouse hanging there. I could move the mouse but nothing else would work including ctrl+alt+delete.

I then used my Windows 7 usb pen backup install to install Windows 7 on the laptop and it would still hang at the black screen.

I then used a program called killdisk, put it onto the usb pen and made it bootable, and it formatted everything off the hard drive. I then went to start the computer and it was still starting with the Windows 7 logo but just stayed there.

I then used my Windows 7 off my usb pen and it didn't work. I also tried my Windows 7 disk and it didn't work.

I faced this problem on this laptop before but it had Windows Vista on it (which was about 8 months ago) and put Windows 7 on it (8 Months ago). Now the problem is back again and im not sure how to fix it. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Its either a configuration problem, a hardware error, or a driver



have you tried to boot into safe mode? does it still happen?

since you say you had the same problem under vista chances are it isnt a cnfig problem but more likely a hardware problem.

I don't think their is a point of safe mode because there is no os on there at the moment.

It might be a config problem but im not sure how to fix it.

This sounds like a hardware problem. Perhaps make a linux live cd and see if you can navigate around and use the linux OS?

The LiveCD List

You might also try to run Memtest86+ off a boot CD and see if that will run correctly

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
