    Windows 7 ultimate 64bit with 3 internal hard drives ubuntu 14.04 and windows 8, 8 gigs of ram, intel core(TM) i7-3770 cpu @ 3.40 GHz

    I was following somewhere on here how to change fonts on my windows 7 ultimate 64bit and did it through personalize>windows color>advanced and after i did i logged out then back in to see changes but i got a black screen with only my cursor i tried going to safe mode and doing a system restore (because i created a system restore point just in-case this happened) but that did not work and i tried last know configuration which did not work either so what else can i do to fix this?
    Thank You in advanced
    BTW i can't go back into any safe modes and i tried all knids of scans on command prompt like "chkdsk /f/r" which said it could not fix all of the problems and SFC /Scannow which came out fine still no dice please help.

    we still need to see this from the previous thread:

    Download MGADiag to your desktop.

    Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.

    Click "Continue".

    Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).

    Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.

    Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.


    thanks,

    v

    All I got is boot from a legit disk and see if you can repair it.

    all I got at this point is back up what you need, and reformat.
