Hey guys I have a problem. I start up my computer and it does its thing, but then after it goes through the step with the microsoft logo and the little blue bar below it the computer screen goes blank instead of showing my desktop. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? The computer worked fine and then it froze up my brother he shut it down and then it wouldn't load. Thanks.

Hi topkartracer

Firstly, does the computer reboot when this happens?

From what you have described it seems like you are either havign hardware or driver issues. Even possible malware.
Try seeing if you can boot into safe mode. Reboot your computer and tap f8 continuously.

Let me know if you can successfully boot to safe mode.

Zombie, I was able to get to my desktop in safe mod, but I'm not sure what to do from there. I tried rebooting the computer, but it just ends up in the same frozen screen.

Garmanma, sorry I dont have a CD.

So you can boot to safemode? Look in your Device Manager for yellow exclamation points and the Event Viewer for errors

To find out what's causing the error, you can enable boot logging from the same prompt that you use to access Safe Mode. The bootlog file is located at C:\Windows\ntbtlog.txt

Boot once into Safe Mode, then once into Regular Mode (even if it fails) - then open the log and compare the two to see where the fault lies (it helps to cut and paste them side by side into a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel, or OpenOffice Calc

Ok I looked in device manager and found that my printer and some USB thing wasn't working right. I uninstalled those, but it still won't load in the normal mode. :thumbsup:
