Windows 7: Windows will not load into or beyond login

03 Jan 2012   #1

64 bit Win 7
Windows will not load into or beyond login

Hello all, yesterday I was surfing my usual forums and my screen which had been doing odd things for a couple of months now started shenanigans again. Unfortunately this time things didn't go back to normal. I was informed that the video card had failed and windows had recovered. The computer shut down by itself afterwards, which is something I had not seen when this happens. I can not get the computer to come back now, in normal start up or in any of the safe modes. When I start the computer now I get this:

POST beep
BIOS screen
Loading Operating system
Windows error recovery (with booting options)
The four little dots that come together to form the window with starting windows underneath it.
The screen then goes black I get my cursor arrow and it remains that way until I get pissed and shut it down.

Here is a link to what I see on the screen sometimes, fortunately it happened as I was tying this up, I recorded it with my phone.

Your video card is probably shot. This happened to me with my trusty old 8800 GTX and I had to replace it
