    Hello roxychikk and welcome to TSG!

    Does the DVD/CD drive light flash at all?
    Does the drive start to spin the disk?

    My neighbours are having the extact same problem. They get a black screen and the mouse appears. You can move the mouse around but if you press escape the monitor goes into sleep mode and then says no video input. You can bring up the task manager and cant taskswitch using Alt-Tab or the windows key and D. They also have to press the on/off button on their tower to restart.
    The cd/dvd drive does make noises while this is happening. I just take the disc out, then reboot using the button on the tower. PC only bought last Christmas with dedicated graphics card, so meets min requirements.
