    After the windows starting screen I keep getting a black screen with cursor. Have the ability to move the cursor, but that's about all. Can't start anything, not even task manager through ctrl+alt+delete. I'm using windows 7 pro 64bit for a few months already. Haven't installed anything myself for the last week. Restoring system tells me a windows update happened the last time the PC was on, so I'm guessing that's what caused it, other then that I was only gaming a bit.


    Already tried:
    restoring system to a date where it did function through windows 7 install DVD (tried several restore points)
    repairing the startup through windows 7 install DVD, yet it gave no problems back.
    repairing the memory through windows 7 install DVD, yet it gave no problems back.
    Running in safemode, gives lower res (bigger mouse cursor), but still black screen without anything to do.
    Running in safemode with command prompt, but no command prompt is showing up
    Using windows+r to bring up command doesn't function
    Running in lowres, brings same result as safemode
    Disconnecting all USB devices

    Looked online, but every solution I found, either managed to get to still have access to task manager, safemode working or system restore working. Any help is appreciated ^^
