It seems kinda poetic, doesn't it? A white cursor moving on an empty black screen, it can go anywhere it wants, but it is unable to do anything.
I'm working on a friend's computer, I dunno what he did... I probably don't want to know what he did, but it is irrelevent. It's an Acer Extensa 5620, Costco special, nothing special here. henever the computer boots up it boots up to a completely black screen, the only thing there is the white cursor. Now I assumed this was a "screen hide" virus kind of like the icon hider, but I'm completely lost here. Usually you can get around something like that by starting in safe mode, well not this one. I've tried starting up in safe mode and I get the same result. I've also tried going through the setup screen, but nothing there seems out of place. I can't really run anything, or do -anything-. So really anything would be helpful. Basically
Push power button,
computer turns on to Acer screen with the option to "press F2 to enter setup",
then you get a black screen with "windows did not resume properly last time it was shut down blah blah blah safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt or start windows normally" if you choose a safe mode you get the "files loading" screen which details all the start up files, if you click "start windows normally" you get the little green loading bar.
After the loading process is complete the white cursor shows up and everything is black.
No right click response, no ctrl alt del response, no nothing that I can figure.
