Windows 7: [HELP] Can't boot in Safe mode(Stucks, displayed black)

[HELP] Can't boot in Safe mode(Stucks, displayed black)

Hi all,

I am turning on my computer, pressing F8, the boot menu appears (Safe mode window), I choose "Safe mode" and click enter.
The display shows that it is "Loading windows files", then it stucks on a black screen.

I tried it many times but it's the same. I was waiting even 30 minutes but nothing helped.

Anyone knows what could be the problem?
Is the System recovery. startup repair Tool could help me in this case?

Have you checked the hard-drive light to make sure that nothing is happening?

You think that somehow could be 2 options:
1. A process is running but no action is taking.
2. Process ends and black screen stucks.

That's what you mean?
I dont think I have a problem with my hard drive.
By the way, when pressing F8 and then "Repair my computer", it takes you to the "Sysytem recovery" with no problems.
