wondering if anyone could help me solve this problem. When starting computer everything works fine, the windows logo loads, I get the welcome word on the screen and just when the screen should turn into desktop all I get i black screen with a cursor. I can access the Task Manager through CTRL+Alt+Del.
also I can turn it of manually into a sleep mode and on start up I can click on switch users and restart or shut down the computer. I tried setting it to an earlier date, but no difference. I tried the system repair - found no problems. So do not know what to do with it. It does load in safe mode.

This has happened yesterday after I have attached hdmi cable to it, which I have done many times previously without any problems, do not know if this could have any connection to the problem.

Any suggestions how to fix the problem.

I will be grateful for any help.

Thanks, Monika

Can you run the Explorer.exe through the task manager (File -> New Task)?
