Windows won't boot to the login screen regularly OR in Safe Mode. It just stays on a black screen with the mouse pointer. I don't have any boot disks to try either but might be able to make one at work with a little direction. I'm generally fairly savvy but not so much with new OS/BIOS stuff. Chk Dsk actually ran once and found no problems. A few other Windows utilities from the F8 menu also found no issues. Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool is running now - no problems yet.
I was thinking it might be the graphics card (comp has an onboard Intel GPU plus a discrete Radeon card, which had been turned on 24/7/365) but can't find a way to enable/disable them in the BIOS to test. Trying to boot with low resolution or last good config don't work either.
Random note: there were a couple profile IDs that I didn't recognize when I logged in to the F8 menu. Not sure if they might be default ones (ASPNET and HomeGroupUser$)?
Anyone have any ideas? I have a bunch of files I would really like to avoid losing...
