I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 which is about six years old. It overheated and powered off last night (something it does with frequency). This morning when I turned it on I had some start-up options, and selected "start normally" which I always do. It brought me to the log-in screen, I put in my password, and it seems to log in, but instead of being able to view my desktop, it is just a black screen. There's nothing to click, and the only thing I can do is let it power off. What happened? How can I fix this/prevent from happening again?
