Windows 7: Black screen appears towards the end of reformatting Windows 7

Black screen appears towards the end of reformatting Windows 7

Hi all,

This morning when I tried to log-in to my computer as per usual, I was faced with a black screen and could only move my cursor.

I then tried to reformat my desktop with a USB, and it was going on well until the end where the black screen and cursor appeared once again.

I have seen some responses here/online and I have tried a variety of measures but to no avail.

I appreciate any advice. Thanks!
