    When I start my computer, the windows logo animation happens, and then it goes to a black screen with a cursor in the middle. I have done startup repair a few times, and the first time it did something, but now when I try it says there there are no problems. I cannot start it in safe mode either. One major problem is that there are files that I really need for a school project on this computer. So, is there anything I can do to recover the files and fix my computer? Thanks.

    Well I was able to recover the files using a Ubuntu Live CD, but I am still having issues starting it up.
