Hello, first time poster, long time reader here.
Well, I'll try to give a detailed description of what happened leading up to my problem, so here goes:
Since it was the first Saturday in College Football Season I figured I'd sit at my computer and do some maintenance while the games were on, so I did Search and Destroy, Disk Defrag and Disk cleanup while watching some of the games.
A while after that was done, I logged onto world of warcraft, and noticed that my user interface was a little messed up, so I exited that program to take me back to my desktop.
I then went to S&D and restored the previous things I had quarentined, in case that was the problem.
After I did this and started WoW again, the problem had not been fixed, but when I exited WoW this time, my desktop had changed the resolution to make all of my icons much larger than they previously were.
At this point, I decide to go ahead and just close my programs and restart my computer.
When I restart, it sends me to the black screen that asks me if I would like to start windows in safe mode, safe mode w. networking, last configuration which successfully started windows, etc.
I chose the "last successful configuration" option, and then got the windows logo and loading bar.
After several seconds of this, my computer screen turns completely black and nothing is going on.
(the "thinking" light that flickers when the computer is doing something was not lighting up)
I waited for a while, and tried to restart again, but this time in Safe Mode, and alas, got the same problem.
Anyone have any ideas?
Let me know if more information is needed, and I'll do my best to let you know what I can.
Thank you for your time,
