Alright guys

 

I am having a few problems with windows 7 and I was wondering if there was anyway to fix it without doing a fresh install.  Before I start I must say that I have not changed any of the hardware so I don't know why I am getting this problem now.  My windows 7 home was working then I loaded up a game to play and it froze so I restarted the machine, now all I am getting is a black screen after the windows logo,,

 

I have even tried to go into safe mode and I get the same problem as above.  I can't even repair it because it doesn't find anything wrong with it..

 

I believe it must have something to do with the display settings within windows itself.. So I am wondering if I remove the display driver and reboot if that will solve it. If so how do I do it through the command prompt in repair mode??

 

Please someone help me

Hi I had this problem its Windows Explorer not running, to get it running so you can start sorting the problem open Task Manager Ctrl, shift, Esc, then file, New task type EXPLORER & run (enter) all is then as normal. I changed graphics drivers, No good! Microsoft give registry edits they didn't work!! So i ran a full update from a current version, my original install was win 7 & i had installed sp1 so you must run that version. It was run as an upgrade from the running OS so no data was lost.

 

Others reported that the registry fixes worked  but for me  after several days on & off on this machine I found it to be the best way.

Taskbar doesn't work I'm afraid.. All I am getting is a blank screen with the mouse pointer showning, nothing else at all. The same if I try and load up in safe mode. 

 

At the moment I am in thr repair mode for windows 7.. I am looking at the command prompt section now.. But I need to know how to disable/remove the graphic card setup via this way if at all possible

Try running the chkdsk /r command from the command prompt.

Try to load windows with (F8 while booting up): "Last known good configuration".

 

This could easily be virus. I had this a long time ago and only solution was reinstaling Windows.
