Windows 7: Windows cannot boot and I cannot login into Safe Mode

22 Sep 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Windows cannot boot and I cannot login into Safe Mode

The problem happened yesterday in my Lenovo laptop.
When Windows boot I get to the black screen with the Windows logo. Afterwards I get a black screen with only the cursor and nothing else. If I move the cursor a bit the screen dims, I still see the cursor (like the brightness goes full down).

I try to get to Safe Mode and it seems that it would work because I get to the blue login screen, but there I have another issue as neither the keyboard, nor the touchpad seem to work. So I can't login.
I connected a physical mouse to the USB port but again it doesnt seem to work in Safe Mode so I can login.
In BIOS the keyboard works just fine.

I tried F8 and then a repair but Windows did not find any problems and the problem persists. I believe that if I could somehow type and get in Safe Mode I could probably find what's wrong.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...
