Greetings, so I was fixing a computer last night that my brother brought to me, same as usual, well, when booting it i tried to load windows as per normal, but it loaded to a black screen with cursor. before we get started, im running a custom rig here, two gtx 570 graphics cards, 12 gigs of ram, windows 7 pro OS

here is a list of things i have tried, as per my research.

letting it time out, (8 hours total wait time) no luck
ran sfc /scannow, would not run (said there was a repair that required a reboot, tried that like 5 times)
tried ctrl alt delete, no response, tried shift 5 times, a dulled version of access center came up, that did not let me access the main one, tried windows key p didn't work
ran start up repair, 4 times, didn't work
tried safe mode, didn't work
tried keyboard commands in safe mode, didn't work
tried system restore, didn't work

at this point, i am out of ideas, and would like to avoid a format at ALL costs.

any feedback would be VERY appreciated

I would try the bootrec /fixmbr command.
