System Details -
Lenovo Y500 Laptop
120GB SSD as windows drive
1TB Drive as storage drive
Problem Details -
My laptop has been running with no problems at all. This morning I switched it on and after the welcome screen I just get a black screen and it stays there. There is no cursor and no ability to enter task manager
Attempted Repairs -
I've tried booting into all 3 safe modes, low res mode and last good config, which just give me the same blank screen. I've tried startup repair which finds no problems. I've tried running sfc /scannow but it gives me a message saying that "there is a system repair pending" and that the laptop need to restart. I have also run chkdsk (chkdsk C:) on both drives which finds no bad sectors and gives no warnings. I have also tried clearing cmos by removing the battery and power and pressing the power button for 2 minutes. I would use system restore but I stupidly have no restore points.
My only guesses now are that the user profile is corrupt (but this usually gives a message rather than a black screen), the windows installation is corrupt or I have some virus/malware. I'm not sure how to proceed.
