Windows 7: Booting Black Screen!

Booting Black Screen!

Hello everyone!

This is what happen...

Yesterday I tried to Boot in Safe Mode using the "F8" key and nothing happens, my PC just boots as normal, so I did try again restarting and F8 for Safe Mode, and again, it booted normal. I though it was a f8 key malfunction.
So I had run "msconfig.exe", under "Boot - Boot Options" I check "Safe Boot - Minimal", Apply, then OK and the PC restart to a Black Screen. I did a hard restart 2 times after and it goes to the same black screen.

My question is; is there any way to access the system to roll back the booting config. to the normal boot?

I don't have any install CD from vendor (Dell). My PC has windows 7 ultimate x64.

Any help will be much appreciated.
