    No Login window is appearing & Mouse pointer which is visible is not moving.
    Tried recovery procedures including CHKDSK several times. But no use the same problem persisting.

    If you can get into safe mode try this:

    1. Open notepad.exe, type "del c:\windows\prefetch\ntosboot-*.* /q" (without the quotes) & save as "ntosboot.bat" in c:\

    2. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "gpedit.msc".

    3. Double click "Windows Settings" under "Computer Configuration" and double click again on "Shutdown" in the right window.

    4. In the new window, click "add", "Browse", locate your "ntosboot.bat" file & click "Open".

    5. Click "OK", "Apply" & "OK" once again to exit.

    6. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "devmgmt.msc".

    7. Double click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"

    8. Right click on "Primary IDE Channel" and select "Properties".

    9. Select the "Advanced Settings" tab then on the device or 1 that doesn't have 'device type' greyed out select 'none' instead of 'autodetect' & click "OK".

    10. Right click on "Secondary IDE channel", select "Properties" and repeat step 9.

    11. Reboot your computer.
