I am working on a Dell Inspiron laptop (model 1750) that boots fine to safe mode however, when i boot to regular mode the screen starts to flicker at the logon screen. No visible buttons are available to select the user. I have tried startup repair, uninstalled video drivers and scanned for and removed malware. The machine is running Win 7 SP 1(64 bit). Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Edit: Did a reload and fixed the issue. If anyone has another fix please post. I will check back in case I come across another machine with the same problem.

scanned for and removed malware.

This may have been the main problem, depending on the type of malware -
