Does anyone know what would cause the screen to go black after displaying the boot screen where you can press F2 / F4 etc. I can get into the bios and into the F4 for recovery. 
But the minute it goes past that screen normally, it just stays black and can't see anything (no windows load logo, no white cursor etc)
Hope someone can help

Have you tried f8 to see if you can get into advanced boot options?

Another possibility would be hard drive issues, either physical or an issue with the boot order.
