I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Firstly, boot into the Linux operating system, and then create a backup of all important files and data.http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/300316-black-screen-movable-mouse-cursor-before-login-screen-appears.html
I have recently encountered a problem with explorer.exe. A black screen with only mouse cursor appears for long time after login to my ID, it takes approximately 7 to 10 mins before the desk top loading up.
Anyway every time I now logon I have to press 'Ctrl-Alt-Del' and then open Task Manager, and run a new task 'explorer.exe' and everything is loading quickly. I'm just wondering why it keeps doing this?
Thanks, all help is appreciated,
Can you boot into safe mode? If you can try SFC. Also if safe mode works try a clean startup.http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/292836-black-screen-only-mouse-cursor-appears-long-time-after-login-my-id.html
I have a 4 year old Windows 7 laptop which has suddenly started playing up. Last night, I received a runtime error, which when I clicked OK shut down Explorer and removed the start bar from my screen. I was unable to get it back or to make my laptop restart via ctrl+alt+delete. When I forced a restart by removing the battery, I ended up with a black screen with a movable mouse cursor. The same happened when I tried to boot into safe mode, but with the standard 'Safe Mode' text in each screen corner, and Microsoft ® Windows ® (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) at the top edge of the screen.
Can anyone provide any help to revive my ailing laptop?
An update on the situation as it's been a day.
I can't bring up standard desktop in safe mode, or by holding F8 and selecting the low resolution option. Weirdly, I can activate sticky keys, and can see the standard windows sticky keys dialogue box which pops up when you hit shift 5 times in a row.
There are plenty of 'try this' suggestions when I google the issue, but I'm holding off on trying anything at the moment, as I'm hoping the experts here will be awesome.

I think I saw this post aver at Toms but I also think you gave some additional info.
I think what may be going on it during the switch from the windows low res video driver to the driver used in normal mode.
Since you can get into safe mode try to go to device manager.
Start|right click computer|properties|device manager.
Look in the display adapter.
Is there a yellow exclamation mark there?
Or is it showing the video that you know should be there?
Please post the video that the machine uses and or the PB model.
The issue started a few hours ago when I was playing League of Legends specifically when the game has finished its loading and crashed to Desktop which is a common problem on my laptop As usual I would restart the game but before I could do that explorer exe Mouse Cursor Login before Screen Black of Death Screen with crashed my entire Desktop has turned to the familiar transparent whitish filter before the quot Explorer exe has crashed quot message popped out which was peculiar at the time because this is Black Screen of Death with Mouse Cursor before Login Screen the first time it had happened So I allowed the program to restart it didn't So I shut down via holding down the power button and rebooted the laptop It went into Startup Repair and did its automated repair so I let it repair while I did my stuff When I returned the repair had completed and it booted the laptop into the infamous Black Screen of Death with a movable mouse cursor This is right before I could log on to my user account and I decided to search for solutions initially on Google using an available PC Most of it didn't work for starters booting up to Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking and Last known Good Configuration brought me to the same movable mouse cursor with black screen combo Safe Mode with Command Prompt has the same problem and the Command Prompt does not appear After which I accessed the Repair menu with the F button right after the BIOS loads and tried every option First Repair Your Computer did not work as it couldn't find any problems after the first initial repair it did System Restore didn't not have any Restore Points which is strange because I do have several restore points prior to this issue happened I skipped the Memory option and used the Command Prompt to do a sfc exe scannow to detect any problems according to one solution I found but it gave the message telling me there is another repair job that requires my laptop to be restarted At first I did went back and did the sfc command no luck After all that I went to try the Ctrl Alt Del and starting explorer exe as a new process but the task manager does not appear Not in any bootable modes with the mouse cursor present At the moment I am out of ideas and solutions it really is starting to drive me against the wall because this laptop has a lot of information I need I do not have access to my backups or recovery disks as I'm currently overseas I hope I can hear from any users here about what to do My laptop Acer Aspire TimelineX TG Windows Home Edition x I do not have any USB devices connected to my laptop except for my mouse and that's about it I will try my best to add on more missing info if pointed out thank you very much

Same problem occured again, black screen with a mouse cursor... so i started explorer again in the task manager.. the problem is that the computer won't let me do anything.. because there no task running... I tried to go to the control panel and do a system restore but it gave me an error when i clicked on the control panel saying "no such interface was found" i tried downloading a anti malware program but the download failed because it was blocked.. I can't even go to the regedit.. nothing seems to be functioning..
And to make things worse my dad doesn't have the window 7 CD to restore it through the CD. what can i do?
UPDATE: I tried running it under window safe mode with networking it didn't work. My desktop couldn't even show up, I tried checking the disk (chkdsk /f) but it said i didn't have enough admin power or somethng like that. I manage to find a window 7 CD.. Going to see if i can repair it through the CD.

Alt+ctrl+del doesn't work, trying to boot up safe mode ends the same, can't recover since windows can't see any recovery points.
I didn't install any new software before it happened except for windows installing some new updates.
Recently I had issues with windows updates causing shut downs and blue screens but nothing so serious I couldn't deal with it.
I've red couple of threads about similar problem and so far I found one that could fix the issue ( Windows 7 boots to black screen with cursor before login screen after - Microsoft Community)
the only priblem is when I try to set full power to all users i get this message: "No mapping between account names and Security ID's was done." and at this point I'm just stuck or I'm just mistaken thinking it might help.
If there is a way to fix it ( No mapping between account names and Security ID's was done.) with cmd (since it's basically the only tool I have access to), or if there is totally different way to deal with it, I would be very gratefull for any help.
If you have a System Recovery Disk then try to do a System Restore from Windows Recovery Screen System Restore (Method 2) If that fails then try this Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times Also this one User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

Boot into Recovery Environment using Windows 7 DVD, run System Restore again -- choose a restore point farther back.
Also try "System Repair" option in Recovery.

My mom has a BIG problem with her compture.
My brother was trying to update the PDF reader from adobe and it got to 98% and froze. He tried to hit the cancel and he rebooted into a black screen with a cursor that moves.
He tried to boot into safe mode, but every option leads back to the black screen with the cursor.
He tried to find a restore point, but he states that there were no restore points created.
The computer is Vista premium I believe and it is an HP desktop...about one year old.

If you had an install disk, you could run the DISM commands, you may still be able to do it, if you can get Task Manager to pop open, try CTRL ALT DEL while that black screen is up, if you can get Task Manager open, we can open a command prompt. Most likely you will need an Admin Command Prompt, you can check the box that says "Run this as Administrator" while CMD is in the Run Box- In the Task Manager under "File>Run New Task"
DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8
Try to get into Safe Mode, Admin account. You'll have to run the DISM from there.
I've seen this Black Screen of Deth on systems where they used a KMS activator for Windows 8, the fix was to run an In Place Install and buy a new Key (and of course remove the KMS activator). I've had 2 systems like that, but no Valid systems. I know on the cracked systems, the crack caused it. On a valid licenced system I don't know the cause.
If you can get into Safe Mode or a Command Prompt from task Manager, try SLMGR.vbs /dlv and see if your system is still activated, if not, you can try the /a switch and reactivate it.
Hey there, I have a Dell 15r and it is currently running Windows 8.1. This morning it working just fine. I was on YouTube and a video wouldn't load, so I simply restarted my laptop. Thats when the trouble began. I wm now only able to log in, and once that happens, my screen is just black with a movable cursor. I've taken the battery out and that didn't work. I am however still able to CTRL ALT DEL and enter task manager, log out, lock, and switch user. How do I go about remedying this problem. Also, f8 and f11 dont take me to the Launch Last Healthy session or whatever and I'm extremely frustrated.
Hi Everyone,I hope this will help you fix this specific issue you have on your Dell system.On your Desktop Screen Press "Ctrl + Shift + Escape" to bring up "Task Manager".Go to "File" choose "Run New Task" then "Create New Task" window will pop-up, Type in "msconfig" and put a Check Mark on Administrative Privileges in "Create New Task" window then hit "Okay"."System Configuration" window will pop-up, go to the "Boot" tab. Under Boot Options put a Check Mark on "Safe Boot" hit "Apply" "Okay" and "Restart". Your computer will restart and after you log-in you will notice that you are now in SAFE MODE.On SAFE MODE, go to Control Panel > Programs & Features > View Installed Updates.Look for the "Update for Microsoft Windows" & "Security Update for Microsoft Windows" that has the install date of August 2014 then Uninstall them ONE-BY-ONE. (Make sure to uninstall only the said update file name and addition, every time you uninstall one file it will prompt you to restart the computer. Just choose "Restart Later").After Uninstalling all those Updates from your computer, go back to the "Task Manager", refer to the instructions above but this time remove the Check Mark on Safe Boot, then hit Apply, Okay and Restart Later. Now, go back to "Control Panel", then open "Recovery" and choose Open System Restore.On System Restore window hit Next, choose a Restore Point (choose the date which has the last known good configuration) and hit Next. then FINISH.Heads Up!! The system restore process will take a while and after the System Restore process your computer will restart.... .. . Log-in and it's back to normal. hope this steps will help you fix the issue.Cheers!!http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/software-os/f/4677/t/19597498

I have a computer that operates on windows vista.
I turn it on and it takes about 30 seconds for the monitor to come out of sleep, another 30 seconds for the mouse to appear and then that's it. Nothing else.
If i press ctrl-alt-del the blue circle (the timer?) comes up, flashes on and off then goes off again. Same with esc and f8.
I can move the cursor about but that's all I can do.
I've put my windows vista home premium disk in to see if I can just re install or repair but i get nothing. The blue circle appears for a moment, flashes then stops.
I've tried the disk in both drives but nothing happens with either. Any ideas?
It hasn't been working for a long time and I miss my beautiful pc with all my photos on it.

The only time I ever used that recovery option on a Vaio, it performed a destructive return to factory settings with no further warning so I recommend leaving that one alone for the time being. Tap F8 to bring the Safe Mode menu up and try the option for VGA settings, which might just let your graphics card show with reduced functions. If you can get in that way, try updating the drivers for the graphics in Device Manager.
As for getting the files out, you could Google for Hirens BootCD and download that, burn it to a disk and use MiniXP to gain access to your files and move them to memory sticks of an external hard drive. Using MiniXP would also tell you if the graphics are working but that your own system lacks some files or settings somewhere.

Hi Skordy18 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As same issue when even on safe mode most likely indicate corrupted start up files.
You can use a recovery disc ( if you manage to create one before it happened ) or any similar versions of Windows to lauch repair . If all options of advance repair have been exhausted and the repair would not work , consider backing up your files (either removing the harddrive and placed on an external harddrive enclosure to be backed up on another pc or loading a rescue media to boot from).
One key recovery would always be the last option as it would delete everything and reimage the machine back considering if this is a software issue with Windows.
Running hardware diagnostics can also help.
Update us how things go.
Laptop Acer Aspire with Vista Home Premium Before it all happened - Removed MB memory sticks and inserted a GB memory stick Did a restart It worked perfectly The specs showed that my laptop now has GB of RAM - Decided to clean up the hard drive a bit by uninstalling some programs applications that I no longer used media players toolbars etc I was using quot Total Uninstall quot to do this During the process I deleted some registry keys associated with a media player First sign of trouble - None of my shortcuts were working I went to start menu to open my disk defrag and disk cleaner as a finishing touch to cleaning my hard drive space but received errors stating that the shortcuts did not link to the programs Then I found out none of my shortcuts whether they were in the start menu start toolbar or on my desktop linked properly Decided to do a restart Problem - Restarted It gets pass the BIOS screen information and the windows loading screen However before it reaches the Welcome screen with the accounts files? Black save cursor, screen, movable the screen is just black I see the white cursor in the middle and I am able to move it Nothing else appears - I cannot open the task manager What I have tried so far - Pressed F and selected 'Repair Your Computer' Did the quot Startup Repair quot quot Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool quot Both detected no problems - Pressed F and tried quot Safe Mode quot quot Enable low-resolution video quot quot Last known good configuration quot None of Black screen, movable cursor, save files? these worked and led me to the same black screen with white cursor At this point what other options are available to me I don't believe I ever made Black screen, movable cursor, save files? a recovery disk I don't mind wiping the hard drive clean and reinstalling another OS However I would like to find some way to at least retrieve some pictures stored in the hard drive
There are 4 basic causes of black screen events in Windows:
- dead/dying hard drive (doesn't usually have a cursor)
- bad video drivers.
- registry errors
- driver issues (beyond the video drivers)
Since you're not able to get into Safe Mode, it's probably either one of the boot/system start services or the registry entries associated with that (and I'd tend to rule out the video drivers since they'd be isolated out by the Safe Mode boot).
The most likely fix here is to use System Restore (from the Startup Repair menu) to restore your system to a date just prior to your "cleanup".
Beyond that, it's gonna be difficult to fix otherwise, as you'll have to replace registry keys and drivers while outside of Windows.
I haven't used Total Uninstall in a long time, but doesn't it have a save/restore function? Maybe that will contain necessary restore points if the System Restore doesn't work.
You can retrieve your files by slaving the hard drive to another system using a tool like this ($32 US): http://www.cooldrives.com/saandidehadr1.html

Hi whapster,You should refrain from asking for help from others, while you are being instructed by another Malware removal team.It is a waste of both forums time and resources.Perhaps you should present your original helpers with your problem, because BC doesn't know what steps have been taken up to this point.I see you have a HJT log posted in the Misplaced HijackThis Logs forum.If you wish to have your HJT log analyzed, follow the instructions in the reply to your Misplaced HJT log Here.At this point, our HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.This topic will now be closed, since you have an open log posted.

Hello I've been running Windows for a year now with no problems but a few days ago my laptop froze and the only way to turn it off with cursor extremely slowly/Black running movable Windows 7 screen was to hold down the power button When I turned it back on it began to run extremely slowly The Windows logo appears as normal but hangs around for a long time before it cuts to a black screen with nothing but the cursor Then if I wait about half an hour Windows 7 running extremely slowly/Black screen with movable cursor the login screen appears but again it takes a long time for the computer to process me typing in my password and pressing enter The screen then goes black for a second time again with the movable cursor for another half hour or so before arriving at my desktop Everything seems to be there Microsoft Office etc but it takes minutes for the laptop to process anything I do or open anything I click on The only notable difference to the desktop is the outdated looking Start button I understand this may be a hardware Windows 7 running extremely slowly/Black screen with movable cursor problem but the one thing that makes me think it is something to do with Windows is when it gets to the desktop a message appears in the bottom-right corner saying 'failed to connect to a Windows service' I have started it in safe mode and Windows 7 running extremely slowly/Black screen with movable cursor that made no difference I've had a look on the internet for solutions but can't find anything that is exactly the same problem as mine And as you can probably tell I am not very computer savvy and don't know what to do next If anybody knows what the problem might be then any help would be appreciated If you need any other details then just ask Thanks in advance JBwell

Computer is a HTPC:
MSI E-350 APU/Mobo
120 GB Kingston SSD
The computer hangs for a few minutes after the black "Starting Windows" screen and before the Logon screen appears. The mouse cursor is display and you can move it around all you want.
Last night, I was able to track down that it was the power service causing this issue, but i can't leave it permanatly disabled as the audio service depends on it.
Oh yea, it's happened after 2 completely fresh re-installs, after windows updates.
Any ideas? What can I do to further narrow this down? Thanks!

Hi, haven't been able to log in to my main PC since October. Keep getting a black logon screen after the Windows loading screen. I've Googled for solutions, posted on the Japanese Microsoft help forum, posted on bleepingcomputer.com, but no solutions have worked so far.
I've tried Safe Mode, Windows Restore, sfc /scannow, but nothing has worked. Not sure if anyone here has any other solutions, but thought I'd ask before I try paying Microsoft Japan for Premier Support.
Please see the bleepingcomputer.com thread for the circumstances for my problem and the specific solutions I've tried.

Hey everyone I did a bit of research and this seems to have been an issue for a while or has been in the past Was upgrading to windows I first had to restart my pc cause it was initially stuck on that preparing to install problem with the green bar being stuck around It then got through that and began the installation process with the big circle and rebooting process However around when I last looked at it it was just black screen this stayed this way for about - hours I then decided to reboot the pc and it has now booted to the login screen Is this a known (no screen just Black Screen to blank) but cursor of Doom Booted login bug or could there be a possible issue The problem seems a bit different Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) as some people I saw have had to fall back on PC restore points etc So not sure if it installed or what could be the problem Also side note I upgraded my pc when windows first publically released but rolled back because I had about min shutdown times So not sure what is Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank) going on and any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks
I never had a problem upgrading like you've experienced but I experiencing Windows 10 upgrading process is the longest time taken ever compared to previous versions. It took me 1 hour+ to finished.
Play around a little bit to get used to it then did a clean install. No problem arise, seems working fine.
The point is, problems always happen after upgrading, to solve it just perform installation from scratch (clean install).
Apologies if this is in the wrong section I have a Dell Inspiron and the owner said that his son installed BearShare and it's been giving him complications He told me it sometimes freezes when he tries to start the computer and has to give it a hard shut down I hopefully removed BearShare with Malwarebytes and MSE yet I can't seem to find why it's not letting me boot up regularly It boots into safe mode fine and I can access everything from there but when I try to restart into regular mode it Black active screen, cursor before screen. login just hangs after 'Starting Windows' with a black screen and active mouse cursor I've tried various tutorials from searching quot black screen active cursor quot quot laptop frozen after starting windows quot etc but nothing that I try works After a few hours of research I keep seeing the reoccurring phrase 'shell' I believe it's not being loaded correctly or at all I've tried a fix by Prevx that said it would fix the black screen to no avail But here's the funny part Sometimes it boots to Windows fine and everything acts as it should There's been several times I was about to call the guy and tell him that the laptop is finished but I hesitated and restarted just to see if it was fully fixed Vid Dell - YouTube Let me know if I need to post further information -Dustin
I would try some more scans to be sure
Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

run some hardware tests

and when you can get it to boot
a system file check

and have a look through these handy tutorials

Hello. Recently had a virus and have been going through the steps here on bleeping computer to help get rid of it. The last thing I was told to do was run the farbar scan tool and to copy and paste a code and hit fix. Upon doing so the computer prompted for a restart. It now won't get to the log in screen. I've tried booting in safe mode and I've also tried last known working configuration as suggested and nothing has worked unfortunately. I was told to come here. Hopefully something can be done. Thanks a ton.
Tap F8 at boot and select Repair Computer from the Advanced Boot Options. Do a System Restore to a date just before the problem.
You cannot do the above and if you have another Windows 7 computer create a System Repair Disk. Boot and try a System Restore to a date just before the problem.
I'm using Vista Home Premium. Last night I just got rid of a virus (Antivirus 2009) and installed a new antivirus program (avast). I restarted a couple times, then went into safe mode, then shut off the computer. This morning I couldn't get it to boot, not even in safe mode. Everytime, it would make it past the loading bars, and then the screen would turn black, and there would just be the cursor there, with the little loading circle flashing.
Can someone tell me what is wrong? Or at least, can someone tell me how to get around this and boot up my computer at least once so that I can try system restore?
At this point the only thing I would suggest is resetting your BIOS by clearing your CMOS jumper on the motherboard.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/vista-wont-boot-black-screen-with-cursor-appears-before-log-in-321970.html

Hi, I have recently installed windows updates and after restart the black screen occurred after I typed my password. About five days before that I have reinstalled my Mobile Intel 4 series driver and now in Device manager it shows 3 grayed out monitors which were installed when I have reinstalled the Video driver. The monitor driver that Is currently loaded was installed when I installed the OS itself. Is it safe to remove the grayed out drivers and will this fix my problem?
if you delete them after you press check for hardware changes will they reappear?
if so uninstall them hard then reboot your PC you might wanna create a restore point first in case some thing wrong happens, refer to this link if you dont know how:Create a restore point

As I brought my computer out of sleep mode the computer had crashed with the screen showing vertical, multicolored lines that vaguely resembled gray.
I had to hard restart my computer and after the splash screen, the login screen with all the users never appears, nor does my cursor.
Nothing is on my screen except a faint glow indicating that it's active.
Could anyone help me solve this problem? I've searched on Google but all the results have something to do with the cursor displaying.
I've already tried doing a System Restore and Startup Repair.

I have tried booting it in safe mode, safe mode with netwrork support, and safe mode with a command propmt all resulted in the same thing... black screen with a cursor, and after 15 minutes the screen saver comes on...............???????????????
Sometimes my monitor goes black for a second, sometimes 3-4 times, and then it locks the screen.
What could cause this?
Can this be related to security?
I have a turn monitor off shortcut, created with nircmd. Can it be related to that?
(No, it doesn?t happen when I use the shortcut, it is on the desktop. It happens, when I turn the mouse wheel sometimes).
What do you mean by "locks the screen?"
Does the lock screen come on or does the machine freeze (or just become unusable) and you need to hard reboot it?
Sounds like it could be a TDR issue, but we'll see about your response.

I just bought a refurbished Asus Q LA from Amazon I set it up and it was all working fine Once I got Login Black Goes (No Screen Cursor) After to the login screen and pushed past there if I try to adjust the laptop screen angle the screen goes black The only way to bring it back is to put the laptop to sleep and log back in which usually makes it immediately turn off after getting past the login screen The other way to fix it is to plug in the HDMI cable going to my TV It only does this once inside the desktop Every other time I can move the screen as much as I want no problem This is really confusing and I can't figure out what it is I have opened up a RMA with Asus to try to return it but ya If Screen Goes Black After Login (No Cursor) anyone has any suggestions I am willing to try As far as I could tell it had the latest BIOS version I believe was on it Any help will be appreciated Thankshttp://www.eightforums.com/drivers-hardware/52791-screen-goes-black-after-login-no-cursor.html

boot with UBCD, use the registry restore wizard to restore your registry back a week or two,
if that does not work, you can perform an entire system restore from the command prompt
My computer is unusable when I log in because it just has a black screen with a movable cursor. I run in safe mode and it works. We tried system restore and it just keeps saying initializing and never does anything. It boots just fine, the black screen only happens when I log in. Please help. Thank you
Restart the PC and press F8 during boot.
Once at the Advanced Options choose "Repair your Computer" if available.
Try running the start-up repair.
My PC loads and after I log on, I go to a black screen with only my cursor. I am able to CTRL ALT DEL and reach the task manager however.
I've read about many people having similar problems to this with Vista.
Most people seem to be able to get around it by CTRL ALT DEL and File(run) explorer.exe, but this does not work for me, and the screen remains black.
I have also tried to run in safe mode, same thing, black screen.
Has anyone found another way to even reach the desktop? Any solutions aside from reformatting?
Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi colleagues! I'd like to get some tips on how to get around this problem of "getting a black screen with a cursor" after login. Yes, I'm suffering the same problem since a week with Vista ultimate x86 running on vaio notebook with NVIDIA graphic card. Now the problem is I see explorer running in task manager processes but even stopped it and rerunned it but nothing appeared on screen except the black dead screen. How can I figure out this problem, I tried all the solutions that I read on forums like updating video card, installing KB.. smthng windows update, deactivating themes in safe mode and then entering, but the problem persists. And I login SOMETIMES when I'm lucky without but very often get this problem. I'll appreciate it if somebody could help get around this most common vista problem these days????
hmmm...first disconnect all your external things...network..try the new forceware for the drivers...in safe mode maybe?
well first give us some specs
Having issues getting login screen to appear after windows starting.
After loading windows, it goes to a black screen with just the curser, moving the curser or pressing anything on the keyboard fades the screen a bit...
things i did:
safe mode: dose the same thing, cant get to login screen.
repair: did nothing..
had movie on at night, woke up, computer turned off, booted up, this happened....
the windows cd loads up all good.
only option i c is formatting, but i cant loss what i have....
really need assistance
windows 7 home primium 64bit
posted on a 3DS..........
Update: I did what I really didn't want to do and just installed windows with out formatting.
Made everything messy as fk but its all fixed...
I've searched all over for solutions to this. Upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro from 8 through the Windows Store. Everything seemed to go smoothly. Updated graphics card drivers prior to install of 8.1. Now whenever I start up, I can log in, but then it goes to a black screen with a cursor. Ctrl-Alt-Del will bring up the task manager and from there I can access programs and get on the internet. So after maybe 5 minutes or so after opening a program (usually firefox) the Metro screen randomly loads. None of the store apps worked, though I was able to find a fix for that. Some of them still don't work right though. Am I better off just reinstalling 8 and waiting for them to fix it? Or is there a better way to upgrade from 8 other than through the store?
I have the same Video card as yours. You might want to re-install the Video driver from NVIDIA website but use the Custom Install instead. On the next screen. put a check mark on "Perform Clean Install".
In addition, make sure you have the latest BIOS installed from your MB manufacturer.
Good luck !!!

Hi Today my Sony Vaio VPCEB C for after login Black cursor with minutes screen 10-15 E laptop with Windows Home Premium started showing a black screen for up to - minutes every time I log in This happens Black screen with cursor for 10-15 minutes after login in safe mode too The boot up until the login screen is fine - takes about seconds as I'm using a new SSD I find that I can open the task manager Sometimes explorer won't close in the Task Manager no matter what I do but after minutes everything works fine Other times I can kill the explorer process and re-open it with run and then things are back to normal Whatever happens once my taskbar eventually loads everything else seems to be running fine When I last rebooted my laptop a few days ago the laptop rebooted fine The only thing which I recall changing in the last few days is sharing a couple of folders on my home network and a Razer mouse driver updates I've been doing quite a lot of googling around the issue and trying out various solutions Things I've tried so far Malwarebytes scan Panda and avast antivirus scans Performing a clean boot disabling everything except microsoft services using msconfig sfc scannow chkdsk c f chkdsk c r Removing all network drives I had a look in Event Manager to see if I could see anything obvious and it said that the Panda Antivirus Protection service was taking a very long time to start so I uninstalled Panda and replaced it with Avast This had no effect I also just did a system restore to a point several days before the issue emerged The problem is still there None of these have made any difference to the issue At this point with the system restore not working I'm wondering if it could be hardware related I just had another look in the Event Viewer and noticed Event The Server service hung on starting and The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error After starting the service hung in a start-pending state These seem to happen on every boot at the time when it's a black screen If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears Thanks

Hola... Well, A Vista issue..
A perfectly working Vista machine, on startup after login we go to a black screen with a cursor in normal or safe mode, thought it might be busy, but ran all night and never completely booted up, if ctl-alt-del, you can log off normal, and shut down or restart.
Unfortunately I was a MS dummie and never made a sys restore point, but beyond that this should not happen, and I am probally not the only one.
Any others with this issue and any resolve other than re-installing windows.
Thank you in advance.
Call the OEM of this machine and see what they have to say.
Different OEM's are having different issues with their hardware.
Please Help! I have a Black screen with cursor after login. Have attempted system repair/restore, safe mode and rebooting to last good Windows startup etc. Also I can't use CTRL ALT DLT. Only way to successfully get task manager is through CTRL SHIFT ESC. Please not I have the same issue even in safe mode.
When I get there I notice explorer.exe is not visible. When I try to run it it doesn't work. I get an error message saying "the application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect. please see the application event log or use the command -line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
Not very educated with these things so would appreciate step by step guidance. Thank you.
After booting the computer and logging in I am at a black screen with a cursor, I can use ctrl+alt+dlt to open task manager. I am not able to open explorer.exe
I had problems with the Blue screen of death multiple times and ended up doing a complete factory restore on my computer. After the factory restore is when I encountered this current problem with the black screen.
I've seen numerous posts on this topic, but none have lead me in the correct direction since many of the solutions required being able to open explorer.exe
The black screen with cursor also happens in safe mode. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated and I will need it somewhat dumbed down for the instructions. Thanks.

Hello and welcome Andrew as you are willing to reinstall then I suggest you do this
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 make sure you pick the right version from the list of ISO's as the wrong one will show up as invalid width the activation code on your machine sticker.
To pick the right version see pic and as an advantage this will get rid of all the factory bloatware
You will of course need access to another machine to download that ISO - I use a disk but a stick will do I just prefer the disk myself.
It started a morning a few days ago. When I login on any user, nothing shows up, not even a cursor. It's just black.
So I got into safe mode and disabled my graphics card (intel 965 integrated) and everything worked. So now I have my graphics card disabled, but I can't have the Aero effects or the screen resolution.
The driver installed is the latest one, and I have tried the Prevx fix and everything.
Also ctrl alt delete in the blank screen works (the blue menu shows up full screen)
but when I click Task Manager, it goes back to the black screen.
What should I do?
hi i have a toshiba satellite laptop
and when i turn on the computer it starts
normal but when its about to get to the login
screen it turns black and only the cursor is present
and i tried to turn it off numerous times but no luck
and when its in safe mode it just says safe mode on the corners and in
the top center it says microsoft (r) windows (r) (build 6001: service pack 1)
please somebody help me! and its windows vista
When i try to turn on my computer it boots up regularly, but after the "starting windows" logo is done the screen goes black with just a visible active cursor in the middle. The computer will not start in safe mode either, encountering the same problem.
This is leaving me with little options to explore the problem, but so far I've tried to repair the windows installation with no success, but i have created a temporary windows 7 OS on another partition.
Anyone know what to do in these situations?

Hello all I had some memory issues with my login 7 cursor a only screen, x64 Windows Black computer recently had to adjust the timings and now that they work ran memtest for hours w o an error Windows can't seem to boot Alright so the login screen is black only with a cursor the at ease panel windows Black login screen, only a cursor Windows 7 x64 pro logo center bottom and shutdown red button in it's normal position Although the at ease button and shutdown button don't display anything when clicked but they do work example I can shutdown using the shutdown button The same thing happens for safe-mode OK here's the strange thing when my external hard drive is unplugged it goes straight to the above screen But when the external hard drive is on while the boot starts I just get a complete black screen When I turn it off during the complete black screen phase it'll go right to the regular one Black login screen, only a cursor Windows 7 x64 above with the logo cursor only I've also entered repair and tried to restore to a previous point but it's pulling the from the E drive which isn't the drive I installed windows on If you couldn't guess the E drive was the label for the external hard drive Please help and I appreciate any feedback I'll be at work soon and will be able to respond quickly all day but I won't be able to adjust my computer Thanks
I'm having the same problem on my 32bit system.
1. When you see the black screen and white cursor press CTRL+ALT+DEL
2. Select Task Manager
3. File > New Task (Run...)
4. Type explorer.exe
It's a temp fix but you'll have to repeat the steps when you machine starts up again.
I have an HP dv9500t Intel T7300 C2D w/ 2 GB memory and Vista Premium. This has just started in the last couple of days after installing Trend Micro Internet Security. After boot up and entering my password on the login screen, the login begins with the colored Vista screen and the spinning circle (hour glass) and then will fade to black with nothing but the cursor visible. It will stay this way from anywhere between 1-3 minutes and finally will finish the login and the main screen will come up. It's very frustrating.
I have even uninstalled Trend Micro and it is still doing the same thing. Any known fixes for this problem? Are there any Vista updates for this problem. If anyone has had this problem and has a solution, it would be greatly appreicated. This laptop is only a month old!!!

My new Yoga 2 13 (I7 Hybrid Disk, Windows 8.1) frequently reverts to a black screen with working curser after user password has been entered at startup.The machine is working in the background and CTRL/Alt/Delete will bring up the menu allowing access to Task Manager etc.Shutting down and restarting eventually fixes the issue until the next time. Bios and patches are up to date.There are many reports of this type of problem for Windows 8 for all types of machines, but no one appears to have a definitive fix.I noticed that the machine starts correctly (at least it has not failed yet) if I unplug the Logitech wireless mouse dongle.Has anyone else had this scenario or similar?

The first thing to do when registering with our forum (especially if you have an issue you want assistance with) is to fill out your system specs. This allows our knowledgeable members to assist you better with your issue. It is very simple to do: please follow these steps below
First click on UserCP
Next click on Edit System Spec
Now you will see various fields for different types of hardware. Don't worry if you have no idea what kind of hardware it is asking for or the brand you have as I will explain how to get Windows to list it for you. For now keep that window open
Now click on start and type msinfo32.exe in the search field and press enter
Now you should have a window resembling mine below
With this information in hand lets start to fill out the specs
System Manufacture/Model Number
As you see in my screen shot I have no listing due to my laptop being a custom build (I made it myself). For most people out there usually this will list a name brand like Dell and a model like 1525.
OS or Operating System for short is the main program that drive's your computer...notable example here being the Windows Operating System developed by Microsoft Corporation. Notice that I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU or Central Processing Unit (Processor) is the brain of the computer. Notice that I have an Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5GHz
The motherboard is where all the hardware parts of the computer are connected to. Mine is a custom build JFT02
Memory is what allows applications to run on your computer. The more memory you have the faster an application start. I have 4GB of Memory
A graphics card/cards allow the computer to display an image to a monitor and allow you to play games. Notice I have a NVIDIA 8600M GT 512MB
A sound card/cards allow the computer to play sound. Notice I have an HD Audio Device
This is the output measurement of the image being displayed by your monitor. Mine is 1680*1050
Hard Drives are the primary storage of the computer (think of how this relates to a stomach on a human being). This is where your documents/music/photos/videos are located. Notice mine is a Seagate 7200RPM 120GB
I ve been handed a Vista Home Premium laptop to mend and whilst I ve got it going I m posting this to share my discoveries for what seems to be a not uncommon problem I must say that having read lots of other posts on this subject my solution solved & Vista black cursor - login gives screen may not be the one relevant to anyone else I m not explaining all the details as I would Vista login gives black screen & cursor - solved do normally because if you need them explaining then perhaps this post is not for you The problem was that on boot up all looks well but having logged on the user is presented with a black screen and a cursor which can be moved There is also disk activity but it never gets any further Ctrl Alt Del won t even bring up its menu Booting into safe mode and logging in gives the safe mode screen safe more in the corners and a cursor but nothing else - no task bar etc This time Ctrl Alt Del will bring up a menu but selecting Task Manager apparently does nothing Having used Linux tools to make sure all was backed up I ran a chkdsk on the drive removed it and ran it on another computer but nothing showed up I then booted into safe mode with command prompt which worked - at least in part I was given a command prompt window so was able to try and run things rstrui and explorer appeared to do nothing though trying rstrui again gave the message that it was already running I was able to access a memory stick and also able to run Process Explorer which showed that rstrui and explorer were indeed running so I killed them I noticed that one instance of svchost exe was using CPU so I killed it and tried starting explorer from the command prompt and I got up the safe mode help screen and the task bar I was also able to run rstrui again but found there were no restore points I think the owner might have killed any that were there by her own initial attempts - it s certainly set to make them Occasionally the svchost exe started again but I m not sure exactly what was happening there While svchost was running I was able to get into event viewer and could get at most windows logs but it never completed finding system events so maybe there s a corruption there I set the Windows Event Log service to disabled and rebooted and the machine booted up OK and logged in I then changed svchost service to manual and started the service without any apparent problems although the event viewer just says quot Expand in progress quot and then shows Event Viewer local with a no entry sign Rebooting with the service set to manual gave the same original problem so back to safe mode command prompt to kill the svchost item Having killed the svchost process I restarted the windows event log service and was able to view the system log this time I took the opportunity to clear all windows logs and then try rebooting again and this time it started OK I had noticed that the system event log had entries in it and the application log wasn t too far behind It all seems to be working again now and my feeling is that it probably had something to do with the log event files maybe corrupt or too big nbsphttps://forums.techguy.org/threads/vista-login-gives-black-screen-cursor-solved.1001701/

I've seen a lot of posts on the internet about a black screen after a reboot. My problem is similar but it happens after I lock windows (Win->L). I get a black screen and can see/move the mouse cursor around but cannot ever get the login screen again. Crtl-Alt-Delete does nothing. I end up having to do a hard reboot. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 on an ASUS p6t board. I've checked the event logs and there is nothing before the hard reboot. Any ideas?

This will happen if your partition table got corrupted. U would try these methods.
Boot from your vista cd and select repair my computer>startup repair. If still unsolved, Boot from your vista dvd repair my computer>select command prompt and type these commands,
Let me know the result....
Last night i turned off my desktop from Start>shut down but i realized it didn't really turn off. I turned on the monitor and all i saw was a black screen with a mouse cursor. I shut it off from the tower and went to sleep.
When i woke up and turned the desktop on and i get past the windows start up(windows 7 logo) but all i get is a black screen with a mouse cursor where you are suppose to log in from. Any help would be appreciated.
Hello! You should have let Windows shut down the pc on it's own. Pressing the power button to shut it down might have caused issues.
Reboot then as soon as you see your Computer Name system post logo, HP, Dell etc...
Tapping F8 go to Advanced Options or Repair Computer select the language then select "Repair Your Computer" Windows will look for errors if any weather or not it does go to other options go to command prompt type in
CHKDSK C: /R
This will attempt to fix any file system errors and repair any corrupted system files.
This check Disk will take some time be patient have a cup of coffee or a whole pot.
When the scan is complete reboot.

I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I was using chkdisk and now it will not boot anymore. It only goes so far as to have a black screen and a mouse cursor. If I leave it like that it will eventually reboot and then comes back to the black screen with the mouse cursor. I was wondering if it is possible to repair my system without reinstalling the entire operating system. I don't have a CD or DVD, just a recovery partition.
It sounds like you may have a hard drive problem. Can you boot in safe mode?
Hi guys. I hope you can help. I have windows xp sp3. When my pc boots it only shows a black screen with a mouse cursor that I can move. ctrl alt delete doesnt work. Neither did system restore. I can boot into windows safe mode. Ive run super malware removal, it found 8 files but didnt fix the issue. The files they found were definitely not infected but thats another story.

Working on a Dell XPS 410 running Windows Vista. First booted into normal mode...after Vista loads the desktop comes to a screen that is completely blacked out, except for the mouse cursor that does move around. The system does boot into safe mode...even safe mode w/ networking. So I installed Malwarebytes and updated to latest version and performed a full scan. About 40 infections were found and successfully quarantined and deleted. When I was promted to reboot the system, I did so and let it boot into normal mode. But to no avail did the removal of found infections seem to fix whatever problems is causing this solid black desktop with no icons, taskbar, or anything except a movable mouse cursor. Does anybody have any ideas I can try before I decide to just re-install Vista anew. Thanks for any and all help.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/black-screen-w-mouse-cursor-458229.html
I've got a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop I'm helping a friend try and fix.
I believe it has Windows 8 Pro.
After powering up past the bios screen and the "starting windows" screen, it is just a black screen showing the mouse cursor, which moves around without issue. It does the exact same thing in safe mode.
I've tried loading last good configuration, the dell diagnostics, the Kaspersky rescue disc, and reseating the ram.
Not sure where to go from here.

Hi all I've caused a problem which is proving to be difficult for me to fix My laptop experienced a BSOD which resulted in me being able to log in only to with restarting movable after cursor screen Blank be met with a blank screen with a movable cursor which I resolved using a System Restore Following this I tried to identify the cause for another issue caused by the BSOD which was the replacement of icons on the log in screen by square-shaped outlines I ended up opening Device Manager and then Display Adapters where I disabled one of the graphics processors GT M I restarted the laptop after doing this and since Blank screen with movable cursor after restarting then it has been able to progress past the teal Windows logo and spinning circle but not to Blank screen with movable cursor after restarting the log in screen as a blank screen with a cursor appears instead I've tried using refreshing System Restore Startup Repair and enabling Safe Mode but none of these have been able to work or in the case of Safe Mode the blank screen still appearshttp://www.eightforums.com/general-support/51389-blank-screen-movable-cursor-after-restarting.html
I have an HP notebook bought with Win but not used for a year Now being used Installed Win no problem Anti-virus and a few other programs no problem Yesterday Classic Shell the popular 'bring back the Start menu' rd party item again no problem But today after normal power off power on produced only an IMMEDIATE black screen with just a lonely flashing cursor So not really a boot up Yet the mouse could move the cursor normally And weirdly no keys worked -- except of the function keys No powering off powering on then using F or F had any effect Nor did CTRL-ALT-DEL So I don't see any diagnosis path as I am clearly kind of in Windows but kind of not hence I am typing this on my previous machine The only faint clue I can think of is that the last thing I recall doing before this was to briefly on but screen blank gives cursor power movable with connect an external hard disk But one that was working normally just before on my other machine And anyway I have now disconnected it Or power on gives blank screen but with movable cursor could Classic Shell be the culprit I wonder Any ideas please
Last time that happened to me, it was because of wrong GPU drivers.http://www.eightforums.com/performance-maintenance/60716-power-gives-blank-screen-but-movable-cursor.html

I don't think that Powermax disk will really help you because I think all that does is tell you if the drive is bad. Have you tried doing a system restore yet? Start the computer and press F8, choose Restore Windows to a previous working state and hopefully the Spyware didn't screw up you restore points.
I had a client who is triple booting 7, vista and xp. Installed each OS on separate HD. He boot on each OS by swapping HD using a HD drive bay.
Before this problem occur, he changed a keyboard and after that the PC restart and it will boot. I already tried repairing the windows 7 first using the startup repair. It was successful. But I noticed that all the HD was corrupted. Check disk runs on every HD. NTFS on each HD was corrupted. I tried to fixed each HD.
Now I am able to boot in windows 7, but I get only a black screen and only a mouse cursor. How to repair this problem w/o reformatting and reinstalling? And also I how to repair install windows 7?

Why would you install Windows 7 without SP-1?
Where did you get your copy of Windows 7 Ultimate?
With SP-1 installed you will still have over 200 more updates.

Tried to open C:\Windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log but get an access denied error (?)
Performed system recovery again but same results. Got an error at the end of the recovery -
ecovery failed - Error code 1392 (The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.) Restore unsuccessful.
I can open apps from the task manager "run" and also browse the internet via wireless. Can open Control panel, network and sharing center but can't run Explorer from the task manager. Can open windows such as C:\, etc.
Cannot run regedit, notepad but can run wordpad (?)
Any ideas as I simply cannot do or see anything. thanks, allan
