Hi I would really appreciate any advice i've been trying to fix for four hours without any luck.
I have an Acer aspire 5732Z. I turn my laptop on and it shows the starting windows screen then just goes to a black screen with a cursor. I tried to do systems restore but it said that i did not have a system restore point. I cannot start in any safe mode.
I have all my pictures, uni work etc and im terrified i've lost it all. I've only had the laptop a year.
Any suggestion would be amazing
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.)

Why is my screen black when I start Windows 7?
Background A start won't black up, before login screen Vista screen. week ago on vacation I opened my HP Pavilion dv - cl a laptop Vista won't start up, black screen before login screen. running Vista Home Premium SP and suddenly green and black lines began forming Vista won't start up, black screen before login screen. across its screen I was later told this was a pressure crack although that is not what I m posting about Freaked out that day I turned the computer off and on several times using only the power button once foolishly interrupting a quot Startup Repair quot process Problem When I got home I hooked up the laptop to my TV so I could see what was going on After attempting to turn it on many times I eventually got the BSOD with a STOP x c f error I couldn t access the Recovery Module even to backup or Safe Mode Going into personally uncharted territory I booted from a Linux System Rescue CD to delete the TxfLog file that was apparently the cause of the problem I no longer get the BSOD I get a black screen KSOD sometimes w mouse sometimes w o after the quot yellow bar quot loading screen I still can t get into Safe Mode but I was able to use a Vista repair CD I downloaded to finally backup onto an external hard drive What I ve Done So Far I ve run chkdsk checked the memory and hard disk from BIOS options and run Startup repair I did the kind of Windows backup where everything goes to one file I d prefer not to start from scratch if I can avoid it Thanks so much for any and all help guys I appreciate it a lot Charlie
I couldn't access the Recovery Module...Do you have a Recovery CD, Windows Vista CD, or Recovery Drive (partition)?What happened when you tried to access it?------------------------------------------------------------You said that you were able to backup onto an external harddrive, so important data is safe.The best option right now would probably be to re-format.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/413304/vista-wont-start-up-black-screen-before-login-screen/
Hey need some help yet again Yesterday I downloaded Mission Against Terror New MMOFPS and I downloaded it Upon updating with the patcher my laptop went haywire It started opening up random IE windows slow speed etc etc I did a whole memory scan and a malware adware spyware scan There were several viruses and whatnot but Login screen and BEFORE Screen 7 Windows Black logo/loading!

WIN XP on my other hard drive So I booted up into WIN XP where I'm posting this from and did a FULL NOT QUICK system scan to find the SAME Viruses YET AGAIN SVC exe and exe along with some other minor tracking cookies and what-not Win XP on second drive is also having a few problems like IE shutting down every second using firefox now Think this is a whole system prob But why Didn't the antivirus-es fix it I say quot es quot because I used SuperAntiSpyware Norton NOD Malware Bytes and AVG I've tried the system recovery thing F thing on boot screen NOT ON LOGIN SCREEN Remember I can't reach that but that doesn't work either So any suggestions Btw The windows PRO bit that's corrupted not starting is on C and Win XP is on D Attached is a log of my most recent scans Thanks in advance

Hello friends, I recently got the Gnome desktop environment on the Ubuntu Software Center, and I used the gdm and startx command as said by another forum site. Nothing wrong, they said to logout, tried to login again, goes to a black screen and sends me back to the Ubuntu login screen. Tried again, same result, panicked. Looked up video tutorial on how to fix it, they said to access the control panel via ctrl-alt-f1 or f2, went to a black screen, no text at all, computer runs fine, no crashing. Is there a special way to access the terminal in a System76 computer, I really don't know very confusing? Is there a way to login with the guest session? I use Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf on my laptop. What causes this, I read on Ubuntu forums it's driver issues with Ubuntu and Nvidia, but I have my suspections with the Gnome desktop environment.
So I've hit this issue where I am welcomed with a black screen which is supposed to be my login screen It boots up but what would look like the login screen is simply black When moving the mouse the cursor would emerge whilst changing from pointing to loading cursor animations The wifi icon from the lock screen seems to flicker sometimes but that's pretty much it nothing could be done from my end I've tried resetting restoring from the advanced boot options triggered by constantly interrupting the bootup process but it's telling me it cannot be login Black Windows to prior screen 8.1 screen done since the location of the OS is not quot unlocked quot Safe mode with networking command prompt gives me the same result Unfortunately I do not have a system restore point nor a system image to use The command Windows 8.1 Black screen prior to login screen prompt from within the repair does not let me use sfc scannow too Brief history of what happened beforehand I installed the Uxtheme patcher to enable third-party themes then before rebooting installed an application called StartIsBack After rebooting it seemed fine and I changed my mind and decided to uninstall StartIsBack It turns out the aforementioned program brings a cavalry of bloatware before you could uninstall it After I got rid of the extra software it came with I proceeded to delete each part of StartIsBack from its respective directories but it wouldn't let me delete its core StartIsBack dll because it is running in the background There is no sign of it as well within the task manager So I had to boot to Safe mode to manually delete it and finally getting rid of it After rebooting normally the explorer exe didn't open upon start-up Opening it manually by launching it from the Task Manager doesn't work either so I decided to try and use SFC scannow to try and fix the problem It reported that it wasn't not able to fix some of the errors found and changes will take place after the next reboot After rebooting I am greeted with the black screen issue tl dr is there a possible solution to this without having to format my os partition and or installing a new one If I really have to is it possible to just delete C and perhaps install Windows over it My media files are in D

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.
this is my very first forum post here, few people have recommended this site as a best W7 community on the internet.
I have problem with black screen(lag) between windows starting message and login screen, lag is about 10 seconds and its very annoying, here is the video so you can see the problem:
maybe this is normal? i have this install almost two years, i dont have to much programs, and i disabled almost all useless startup programs. I tried also disabling bootscan in my NOD32 antivirus but nothing changed.
Is there any solution for this? and can i post to you some logs or something?
It is Dell's factory install? Usually it is bloated up with some services and programs those are not needed. So you need to clean them up. Follow this guide:

I'm having a weird problem. My laptop will show a black screen when booting. It seems no matter how long I wait, nothing happens. When I attach an external LCD to the laptop, it shows the Windows load or Windows resume graphics on the external monitor, but not on my laptop screen. As soon as the Desktop Screen with the Windows Login appears, it then appears on my laptop as well.
I also can't seem to get to safe mode. I push f8 and it never comes up I haven't installed any new software or hardware to cause this.

GTX 550 looks like the card works right but there is a problem with the quot welcome quot and login screen It's weird and frustrating and i would appreciate any help
The BIOS on your system dates from 2007. I'd have to wonder if this system is compatible with Windows 8
Many of your storage controller drivers date from 2008 and earlier - I'd have to wonder about those that are involved in any crashes, but there are no memory dump files to examine.
Lot's of errors about services not starting and Windows Updates not installing - but I don't speak Spanish so I can't be sure about the details. I must ask if this is a legal copy of Windows - as illegal copies have many of these same symptoms - and fixing them isn't something that we can do here.

How did you try to repair the MBR? Did you us the installation CD to use the Recovery Console?Regarding Combofix.

Hello everybody,My PC doesn't start anymore since this morning. This is a 9 year old PC that I use almost everyday as a multimedia center. 2 years ago, I switched to Linux Mint 17 64 bits and I put a SSD 256Go. The PC worked very well, very fast since then.Now, when I start the PC, I hear some noises from the CD drive, and 2 short beeps repeatedly.I tried with an other screen. I vacuum the dust under the keyboard, and in the fan. I also tried to remove 1 of the RAM, and start. Then the other RAM and start. But nothing changed.I cannot access the BIOS. I hope I provided enough details.Thank you in advance for your support.Benoithttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/PC-doesn-t-start-anymore-black-screen/td-p/5780546

I got this trojan today too, and it took me all evening to fix.
First I tried Avast but I got part way into its scan twice and my computer shut down. For a while it wouldn't let me do anything, not even open Chrome to go online, but after another shut down and restart, it allowed me to open Chrome. This time I did not touch or try to shut the fake warning pop up.
I went to Microsoft.com and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials (free) and scanned my computer. It took a long time but it found the trojan and then deleted it. After restarting, everything seems back to normal, I just had to delete the HDD Control desktop icon.
Maybe if you keep rebooting it will eventually restart so that you can do something. Otherwise, I'd take it to a repair place and see if they can get it to restart for you and then use Microsoft Security Essentials.

A friend of mine asked me to look at his old XP machine because it simply will not fully startup. It does make it through the initial boot routine and the "Windows XP" splash screen appears but, shortly after that, the screen goes black. All you can see is a black screen with a white cursor in the middle of it. The system does not respond to mouse or keyboard input.
I used a Hiren's Boot CD boot disk to look around his system. He has about 40% free space left on the hard drive which seems to function correctly. I am presently running a virus scan (via the Hiren's Boot CD).
I've never seen an XP machine do this so I'm not sure what is going on. I believe he is running SP3 but I'm not certain of this because I can get it fully loaded to check.
Any help would be appreciated.
Can you boot into SAFE mode? If you can, try updating the video driver for starters.
Hi Everyone As the title says about i have a Dell Vostro and im running Windows with a bit It is only years only It started about a month ago I was on my laptop viewing and Black screen. Vostro login screen Dell reach Wont 1520. deleting some unwanted photos i had A few minutes later Dell Vostro 1520. Black screen. Wont reach login screen i realized that i deleted a photo that i wanted So i went to the recycling bin and restored that photo When i went back to my photos and went into the album it said something like i do no have permission to access this folder Please press continue to get full permission I clicked continue and i got the access i should have Now i tried many more random folders and the same Dell Vostro 1520.

Wont reach login screen out of the folders the folders had a big pad lock sign on the front of it After that i shut down the laptop and went to turn it back on The laptop will power on like normal I can press f for the boot options which i have already tried many times I also tried it in safe mode and what-not but still nothing I can hear the fan and stuff spinning up like normal I have also put and CD into the CD ROM and that spins up fine So after the Dell logo on the screen it goes black and stays that way with the cursor You can move the cursor around no problem I should also add that the battery light is and has been flashing for a good wile Its flashing orange and blue I m wondering if this has anything to do with the battery Because my laptop will not charge with the AC adapter in it for many months now It will only stay powered on with the AC adapter plugged in One more thing The LED lights over the buttons None of the are flashing besides one on the far left And i cant find out anywhere what this LED light stands for It looks like a battery to me Any advice would be so great The way it is now i don t care about the laptop I really want to hope i can save my pictures and videos i have on there nbsp
Since its a laptop the harddrive is easy to pull out and remove.If you have or can get a usb sata/ide connector hook the drive to that and then to another computer if you have one so you can save all of your important data like pix, music, etc.The laptop battery is going to have to be replaced since its no longer charging properly.It sounds like there might be a short somewhere or a power supply problem along with a bad battery.Or possibly something might be wrong with the screen or video or graphics card.

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).

How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
Upon booting my laptop and logging in, I am taken to a black screen with my cursor. After looking up solutions, I discovered that Windows 10 thinks I have multiple monitors, which I cannot have with a laptop. I have no idea what to do and need help.
New Install of OS , Only Drivers and windows updates has been installed and nothing else but i have 3 different account enabled in it but when i log off and log back in i get black Screen and stay at that
The Hard drive is SSD updated with new Firmware and Bios of Motherboard been updated to the new Firmware before OS Install
+ i made sure Video Drivers are up to date so i am not sure what is causing the black screen issue
Last time i seen this issue was on Dell Intel system but the fix was to upgrade the bios from A5 to Bios A10 or higher so i am not sure what to do on my AMD system that has up to date Bios and Video Drivers
can someone please advise on this
This is a real shot in the dark, but if you have a second video port, plug your monitor into it and try restarting again.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/310036-windows-7-black-screen-after-login.html
For some reason after I sign into my user on my desktop, A blank screen appears and nothing loads. I tried the avast configuration since I'm using avast but it didnt work. I tried scanning the system in command promp and it says one corrupt ile was repaired... What is wrong with my computer? And how will I be able to fix it since I cant even login right.
When did this start (eg, right after I did what)? How is Avast tied to this issue (Avast configuration)? Uninstall Avast and retest.http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/28078-windows-8-black-screen-after-login.html
Ok, so my computer will boot up fine, but then it gets to the login screen, where it's completely black except for the cursor, the Restart/Shutdown button, and the Ease of Access button.
This is the same in Safe mode.
Startup repair could only be run as a standard user because for some reason, my only admin account (that I dubbed "Superuser") is missing. I only see my standard account (dubbed "Goku") and "HomeGroupUser$".
Startup repair didn't detect any problems.
What are my options?

I got the Windows 7 RTM quite a while ago and had no problems with it.
A couple days ago, though, I recieve a black screen with movable cursor after login. I am dual-booting with Windows XP, and XP is working fine.
Task manager will open, but is 'hidden' under the black screen. Same with everything else but the cursor.
I suspect this has something to do with VMware server, as this was the last program I installed (about a week ago) and it was also affecting my network adapters.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi people, i've just registered to this forum to ask you about this, Since i've made a registry defrag with TuneUp Utilities (which probably has gone wrong), when i reset the computer, and I logon to my user, it shows a black screen, then back at the logon screen. If I do it again, the user doesn't show up anymore!
It happened three times already, i had to make new users, and i'm sick of it. Any ideas of what could it be?
Yet another case of registry defraggers causing harm. In the future, you know now to stay far away from them.
I suggest a system restore to get to a point before TuneUp utilities. If that doesn't work, it will be time for a repair install.
I updated my ATI HD 5770 drivers today, and rebooted. Afterwards, the login screen sound played, but nothing was visible.

Hi, If you have just upgraded to windows 10 and are sitting at a black screen for way too long here's the problem and how to fix it.If you have an on board Intel graphics controller as well as an add on graphics card, windows thinks you have one more monitor connected than you actually have. so when windows loads its outputting the video signal to a bogus monitor.How to fix thisfirstly wait long enough so the mouse cursor to appear when you move the mouse.(blank screen with a white mouse cursor)Then press the space-bar and enter your login password or pin (yes your doing this blind)You should now be logged into windows if the desktop dose not appear after 30 seconds then press WindowsKey-P down arrow twice and enter.I hope this helps Let me know

Windows 7 won't boot after welcome screen. - Microsoft Answers
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 !!!

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.
Hi BleepingComputer, long time reader, first time caller.
This is my first time troubleshooting a Windows 8 machine. I have a Lenovo G500 here with Windows 8. After I log into Windows, the screen goes black with only a movable white cursor.
Fortunately, I can Ctrl+Alt+Del and pull up Task Manager from here. I can open up Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, etc.. With an Ethernet cable, I can access the Internet. However, I cannot get the desktop or Windows taskbar running.
From a half hour of Googling, the only real solution I've seen is to uninstall the graphics driver through Safe Mode. I removed the Intel® HD Graphics 4000 driver and only the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter remains. Nothing came from that.
Anyone have a solution, or other troubleshooting steps I could go through, for this? This is not my machine, so I couldn't tell you what could have been installed to cause this.
Got it. There was a program called Pokki Start Menu that was installed almost a week ago. I uninstalled it and it fixed the problem.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/530161/windows-8-shows-black-screen-after-login/
I have installed Windows 7 on Mac Bootcamp. It has been working perfectly fine for the past year but it is now restricting me to login with a black screen. The last time Windows 7 worked, I closed my laptop cover to put it to sleep. I came back to find that I was greeted with a black screen after opening my laptop. I rebooted my computer multiple times but the outcome is always the same: I would see the Windows icon (4 coloured squares), it would then show my cursor and then the screen would go black. I have tried to repair my computer but it says that there are no errors. I also tried to check for any other possible errors but they all come out negative. Please help me, as I have many important essays on my Windows partition.
Thank you so much for your time! It is very appreciated.
I'm not familiar with Apple computers or Bootcamp, so I may not even ask the right questions.
Did you have it set to prompt for a password when awakening from sleep? What did you do when you first encountered the black screen (hold the power button to force a power off?)?
Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? Or 'last good configuration'?
You can still boot to the MAC OS, right? And use that to copy any data that is not backed up?
Please help me i have a problem with my computer it goes black screen after i login
my desktop is hp pavilion a5055d my os is windows 8 i dont know what the problem

Did this issue occur before?
Try to logon with Safe Mode to see if the same issue occurs.
Furthermore, you can try to update BIOS for your machine?
You can refer these article to update BIOS if your machine cannot boot:

I would appreciate greatly any help on this one. I'm trying to avoid a huge bill. Let me give you some background. I had to shut my comp off the hard way after everything froze and I couldn't get to task manager. Now, the thing will only load to the black screen with movable cursor. Just so you know what I've done: Setup shows 4 or 5 SATAs listed but the first 2 say not detected. System Restore didn't work. I tried 3 different points. The startup repair thing didn't seem to work either. I checked the hard drive and it's clearly still spinning, not clicking or anything like that. I'm not sure what else to tell you. Any ideas? Thanks a million.

I posted this question earlier but I fixed the problem. Now the answer to what I'm looking for is how can I stop avast from making a black screen popup. I used this tutorial-
How to solve Windows 8 black screen problem after login | Ask4pc
It didnt work. Anything else that will work?
I've seen something here
Windows 8 and Avast black screen problem with moveable cursor |SOLVED
I need some help with this one. After I login, the black screen with mouse appears. I can only get task manager to come up after a Ctrl-Alt-Del. In processes, when I kill two svchost.exe files running, then the desktop appears, but I can't launch anything without an error message appearing about the svchosts not running.
Anyone run into a svchost process causing a Black Screen of Death before? I didn't make any restore points or os images to backup too. So if I can avoid a fresh re-install I will mess around with any fixes you suggest.
Well I am having a problem after logging into windows, it goes to a black screen, i can press shift 5 times to get a dialog open but it does not navigate away from there.

I have retired to roll back my graphics card
But, I am able to login to my guest account and everything works fine, but when I try to run anything that needs admin permissions nothing happens.

Also, next time your machine boots to a completely black screen....let it stay there while it re-configures it's self. Don't be so impatient

Are you using a Ubuntu Live CD, or are you dual booting?
If you're dual booting, you can access your ntfs partition from Ubuntu using steps listed on many many web sites: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...earch&aq=f&oq=
Some are easier than others.
As for fixing your Vista. I have reservations because in some of my steps Vista has this nasty habit of overwriting the master boot record with its own without warning you (making you unable to boot into ubuntu if you dual boot), so research some more, and proceed with caution. If you boot into the Vista DVD, I think you can click repair, and you have a bunch of options and it looks like this:
I haven't tried them in a while so I can't really recall what each does.
You can try going back using a restore point. Be VERY cautious with "Startup Repair". I think that's the one that rewrites the master boot record. (if you really need to try it, research how you can backup the master boot record in ubuntu, then restore it if needed - usually a flash drive, a floppy, or a bootable CD may be needed - you most likely would be able to do it from the live cd if you know the steps though).
And if all else fails, do a repair install. Can't recall how it's done, but there are many sites dedicated to that topic. You can also ask around the forum about it.
While attempting to boot, Death before screen login Black during of Screen restore a previous backup of my system with Norton Ghost I got an error and the system rebooted Upon reboot I get the black screen of death with just the cursor instead of the usual login screen I have tried the following thus far These all give me the black screen of death with movable cursor boot in safe mode boot in safe mode with networking boot in safe mode with command prompt last known good configuration I did an Black Screen of Death during boot, before login screen initial system startup repair which went through and said it repaired it rebooted but no change I did a pre-boot diagnostic test - nothing memory test - nothing tried restoring from restore point but it says I don't have any LIES BLASPHEMY tried restoring from restore point on external disk - seemed okay then failed chkdsk - found some stuff fixed it no change tried ctrl alt del on black screen of death - nothing Now I know that the hard drive itself is alright that is the information is still all there still While I can't give you exact specs I can tell you that I am on a Dell Studio XPS running Win home premium bit I'm at a loss as to what else to do Despite being a black screen with just a movable cursor the system still appears to be running as every few minutes it will show the quot thinking quot cursor where it shows the little circle next to the arrow If anyone has any tips or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated hugs and kisses Amplitude

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

Toshiba, usually pressing F12 when the Toshiba Logo appears will get you to the Boot device menu. If not then,
Go here https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/pubLogin.jsp Choose the Download Tab, No Login required, That is for the Forums.
Download the user manual and see how to get to the boot from CD/DVD drive.
The Drivers tab will show the Toshiba drivers. They are needed for Windows 7, If no drivers for WIn7, Then don't, as getting all that are needed will be a royal pain.
I've even seen certain model of Toshiba that have a XP Bios and a different bios for Vista.

I'm using I have a DELL4500S desktop, on startup it will not go to the login screen, the screen is just black with the cursor showing. I've tried restarting the computer, unplugging everything and restarting it. Nothing is working. When it first starts a pop up shows and says
"This Application has failed to start because SAMLIB.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."
I'm not sure what it's talking about and what to re install and I can't reinstall whatever it is because I can't get to the start menu.

SAMLIB.dll is a security account manager dynamic linked lib. A repair install from the dvd should fix the problem unless you are infected with malware, or have a modified system

I really don't know what the problem is, but I would tend to suspect the video driver. I don't know anything about notebook either, but I imagine that you have onboard video. Check in the Device Manage to see what it shows for the driver for the Display Adapter, then check with HP to see what they recommend.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/39454-black-screen-5-10-seconds-before-windows-login-scre.html

i was customizing my desktop with Rainmeter and i wanted to know how to change my toolbar's color because i didnt want the blue, someone said to download Vistaglazz and repatch some files. after doing so my computer restarted and after the initial normal startup and it saying "Please wait..." like it usually does before it shows the login users, the screen went black, then for a split second the screen went pitch black, almost as if the computer turned off, then it would turn on again and go back to the normal "Please wait..." screen. this would be ok but its happening so fast and over and over again that i cant even hit f8 or Ctrl Alt Delete. im using a different computer because i literally cant log onto the other one. any ideas why its flashing?
gotta love 3rd party apps ,
a system restore to the day or time before this happened would be the best fix i think .

1. Reboot while holding down the F8 key.
2. Choose safe mode with networking.
3. Google for the latest driver for your video card.
4. Download and install the new driver after uninstalling the old one.
5. Reboot your computer.
Also, you could try the repair option two or three times.
I don't want to nag, but when you're up and running, turn system restore back on - you know it makes sense.

Problem fixed, no need for helphttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/363871/black-screen-after-windows-login-explorerexe-has-a-virus-help/
For the past few days my HP s5503w will ask me to login. Once I do, I get awelcome screen and then it turns black. The only visible thing on the screen is the curser.
I recently ran CCleaner, McAfee Pro, and MalwareBytes to address other issues. For a moment, this worked. Then the black screen thing started to occur.
What steps can I take to address the issue and is this potentially a registry key problem?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I've been having this problem for many weeks now, and I haven't gotten closer to fixing it. I had to resort to borrowing a computer from a friend to use while I try to figure this out.
It's a problem similar to this one, except I can't even boot to safe mode. I have taken the RAM out one at a time and booted, but it will still stay at the black screen. I have tried reinstalling XP, and installing it on another drive to boot from there, but neither of them fixed the problem. Since I can't boot at all, I can't run HJT or those other programs that were posted in that thread.
Does anyone have any solutions? I've tried asking around to friends and other tech support sites, but none of them could help.
Hi all I am hoping somebody can help me with this issue as I have never had problems with my Acer Aspire V - laptop before running Windows - it has always ran perfectly if login?! black screen Installed - now after Updates Windows a little noisy with the fan Anyway yesterday I saw I had a bunch of Windows Updates to install probably from Update Installed Windows Updates - now black screen after login?! Tuesday or whatever they call Installed Windows Updates - now black screen after login?! it Installed Windows Updates - now black screen after login?! They were some Windows security updates and the anti-spyware checker for October from what I recall I installed them and restarted my laptop when asked The reboot took longer than usual and was sat on the Windows loading screen for a long time Then the lock screen picture came up and I typed in my password as usual After thinking about it for a while Windows then decides to just show me a black screen - I can control-alt-del to Task Manager but couldn't see anything untoward happening in there - no excessive CPU usage and also ending Explorer exe and re-loading it did nothing to fix the issue I restarted thinking it was a one-off thing but it happened again - black screen after my password I was able to run Control Panel from Task Manager and uninstall the Windows Updates I had just installed but this did nothing and still I had the black screen It was then I noticed that if I leave it long enough Windows does sure enough get to the Desktop but this is far from ideal as it takes about minutes I Googled the issue as I have heard about a black screen after login problem before but there are so many differing answers it is hard to know where to start - I have tried SFC SCANNOW which did nothing I am now running a Windows Defender scan but it seems to be taking forever I also first thought quot System restore quot - as I was aware that Windows always creates restore points before installing Windows Updates But on checking in there for some reason my last restore point was months ago The laptop does seem to be acting up slightly once it has started and got to the desktop since this issue began - for instance right now my task bar is at the bottom of the screen but completely blank - nothing on it - no Start button no running apps and no system tray I can't say for definite that it was those Windows Updates that caused this issue but seems too much to be coincidence I really don't know where to begin I am at the end of my tether What could be causing this previously reliable laptop to start acting up like this Thanks for any replies
same here with the Windows 10 update, same day. Next day, my laptop stalled on black screen instead of loading in a minute, like normal. I had to press power button down until shut down. Start up again, which went fine but slowly. Then Windows Modules Installer worked in background to finish install and I'm back to normal.
System Restore should make one if there has been none created in last 7 days. Be sure you have system restore turned on (see this tutorial - Restore Point - Create in Windows 8 ) or make one yourself every so often, quickly and easily, by using Brink's tutorial to add to context menu (Restore Point - Add "Create Restore Point" to Context Menu in Windows - Windows 7 Help Forums ). I create my own every couple days or before any app install. Good Luck resolving.
I used dejco's Logon Studio many times, but this last time (after an update reset my login screen) made my computer crap out. After the logon was applied, I had to shut the computer down. Windows Explorer wouldn't respond, so I did a hard shutdown. On reboot, I got the Black Screen with a visible and controllable cursor. I've disabled driver signature enforcement for development reasons. I've read across the net that it could be bad display adapter drivers conflictiong with the shell. I've tried System Restore, and I've tried restoring a backup. I also ran checkdisk as well as sfc /scannow in WinRE. CCleaner and a select few other apps from my HDD run, but the majority give me the typical subsystem-not-present error. I'm using an ubuntu live CD right now. I'd rather avoid a reinstall, as I have almost a terabyte of stuff I can't lose. How the heck do i fix this?http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/391164-windows-black-screen-death-beore-login.html
I have a HP Pavillion G6 - Windows 7 Home Premium
I still have warranty, and today when i start up my computer it just froze and it commanded me to go to Windows Recovery ( recommended ) it went through my files and tried to repair it and i had to system restore.
as i system restored into later save date, it said that it failed?! so i didn't know what to do there.
i tried hardware resetting and it didn't work.
also when i turned on my computer it would sometimes go to the login screen and it would say welcome for hours and hours, untill it became a black screen and it froze with the cursor..
ALSO! When i turn on my computer it would always flash or blink once on the caps lock.
So if anyone can help that would be great!

Yesterday I installed an update for Win 8.1 (It was around 90 some mb) after I login I only get a black screen with a useless white cursor. Screensaver works fine, when I do a CNTRL/SHIFT/ESC the task manager box pops up for a few seconds and disappears. I was able to create another user account and everything works fine, but I need to get my first account working properly ASAP. Any ideas? Thanks!!!
Is there a way to access all of my programs from my original administrator user account? That would work too. I set up my new user account as an administrator too. Thanks.http://www.eightforums.com/windows-updates-activation/46611-latest-windows-8-1-update-after-login-black-screen-only.html
This video shows pretty much what it looks like. Just installed Windows 7 on a different computer, and that's the screen I get when I turn on the computer now. CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing, though the little buttons in the corners do work.
Also: Booting to safe mode does not work either. Get the same screen.http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/202321-black-login-screen-fresh-windows-7-install.html

Sorry, I forgot some more symptomes. I found in the scheduled task folder numerous tasks. After deleting them all they just build up again. Also I have to correct: the error thayt appeared is referenced to a file called ouss8q8r.exe.

From sfc /scannow command your windows is assigned D in recovery environment and perhaps %windir% is not recognized, so try the command:
findstr /c:"[SR]" D:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt
So i was trying to extend my system partition using easeus partition manager and on restarting a black screen with movable cursor is there, no login screen. To clarify i can't access the task manager (no response) and same thing happens in safe mode.
I didn't have the windows 7 installation disc as i got this Windows pre-installed from laptop manufacturer so i used my win 10 installation disc to try and repair it. Startup repair couldn't fix anything chkdsk found nothing sfc scannow using offbootdir and offwindir did nothing. I don't have any restore points which i don't why happened because i just installed a win 7 update which created a restore point? Please suggest any solution short of repair install.
Ps i don't get last known good configuration option on boot menu only safe mode so don't suggest that
Thanks for your replies
I am running Windows XP Professional Edition SP3 and the issue is on startup after the Windows loading animation the screen goes totally black with no cursor in sight.
This happened after a power cut when the computer suddenly shut down.
I can run it in safe mode.
I can run another Windows XP Professional installation that I have on my PC (same HDD) and that works with no issues.
I used system restore (24 hours) and it starts up after that, but then after restarting it will not work. Same applies for when I did a system restore from 1 week ago.
All help is appreciated!
Any thoughts before I go and format the system?
Due to a power cut earlier my PC naturally shut off the way you would if you switched it off at the plug.
It brought me into the windows error recovery screen and loaded until I reached the login screen.
Upon saying "Please wait" my screen begun to flash black rapidly and wouldn't load. The monitor wasn't going off or anything, the screen was just blinking.
It still does this every time I reboot my computer, so I can't log in at all.
It also does this in all safe modes so that is out of the question too.
Anyone know how to fix this?
I've got a fresh install of Vista x64, and when I install the Geforce drivers I'm not able to boot Windows normally. The green loading bar runs fine, but when it's over I don't get to see the login screen - it's just black. I have to enter into safe mode (which works) and uninstall the graphics driver.
The exact same thing is true for Windows XP 64-bit. But on WinXP the driver installation program caused huge lag also: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=71101

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.
Currently posting from Safe Mode w/ Networking.

Turns out the problem is with the video ram. Running default XP "vgasave" driver works fine. Problems occur only when kicking in higher resolutions.
At this point I'll run the vender diagnostic and arrange a warranty repair.
Hi has anybody come up with a solution to the issue that I currently have with Windows on a Virtual desktop The user logs in to the VM and everything looks ok until the welcome screen disappears and all they see is a black screen with a mouse pointer for up to minute Eventually the 8.1 insanely screen after login Windows black annoying delay desktop will appear black screen delay after login insanely annoying Windows 8.1 but the delay is just too long to be an acceptable delay due to the nature of it being a virtual machine every time the user logs black screen delay after login insanely annoying Windows 8.1 out the machine and local profiles are reset I have pinpointed that the problem is when the roaming profile is being cached in c users each time the user logs in which is the cause of the black screen delay If as a test I allow the profile to stay cached then the subsequent log ins are less than seconds with no black screen even when rebooting the VM however this is not an option as the VM is supposed to reset its state each time the user logs out citrix vm This is not a Citrix problem as I am testing the VM via the console on VMWare before I even deployed it to Citrix Initially I thought it was a VDA problem as it happens when deployed to Citrix however I realised it happens even when testing the master image on VSphere So it appears on the surface to be a Windows issue and from my tests it appears to have something to do with the caching of the profile to c users on login The roaming profiles are only mb in size so why it takes so darn long is black screen delay after login insanely annoying Windows 8.1 a mystery Windows VM's do not have this problem at all it appears to be a Windows issue from my testing I have tried all the tricks to black screen login issues that I have read about on google but nothing works still the same problem Insanely annoying I have taken it out of all group policies that makes no difference I've disabled services pretty much done everything I have read about Anyone have any ideas I've tried everything I can think of I don't like to be beaten by a problem but this really has gotten me now almost ready to throw the towel in Thanks in advancehttps://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/201ccfb8-a9d5-479e-bace-0e18c6e775fe/black-screen-delay-after-login-insanely-annoying-windows-81?forum=w8itprogeneral

2nd day, no specific error but after windows loaded what i see on the login page is black screen with a cursor [typed my password despite that and able to login] and all i see is my desktop wall paper.
3rd day, reinstalled windows 7 and after 5-7 hours had the same problem. Now i'm running on safe mode trying to solve this problem
on my device manager under other device, there's yellow triangle with exclamation sign in it on; Ethernet controller, PCI simple communication controller, SM bus controller and USB controller. Maybe my problem is caused by that? How can i solve this? I did abit research myself and found out maybe caused by registry related stuff how can i solve this?
Sorry about the question i'm a noob at computer stuff lol
