I have a fairly new Toshiba Satellite A665-S5199x with Windows 7.

When I turn my computer on, I get the regular "Toshiba" welcome sign followed by a less regular screen that gives me the option to either enter in safe mode (with limited, networking, or command options) or boot up normally. When I try to boot up normally, I get the usual welcome jingle followed by a black screen instead of the usual login screen. I then have no choice but to turn off my computer by holding the power button down and re-entering via safe mode (where I am now). I would absolutely LOVE it if someone could help me figure out how I can fix my computer so I can log in normally and have full use of my computer. Help?

Not sure why you posted in this forum for a Windows 7 problem, but I will move it.

Since you turned off with the power button, the file system has been damaged. Run chkdsk /f on the drive before anything else.

Have there been any new drivers or installations/uninstallations lately?
