Hi Invert_Panda,

Here are some results from a quick search that came up that sound similar to what you are experiencing. You may or may not have already seen these posts but might be worth taking a look at.

windows 7 black screen after login, no desktop show up

Blank screen unless in safe mode (Windows 7) - Microsoft Answers

I don't know enough to give you advice of my own (Heck, I don't even have Windows 7), but hopefully you can get that problem resolved as soon as possible. Not sure if those links will be of any assistance but I hope they will shed some light on the situation.

Good luck!

Nine times out of ten if that's when your display stops, it's simply because your display settings are set to something that your monitor can't handle. Depending on what it's not supporting, some monitors respond by going black ... others just go "crazy" displaying unintelligible gibberish.

If that's the problem, it's fairly easy to fix.


First things first ... let's get you a bootable system.

Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.

Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.

Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.

Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)

Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.

OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.

"Start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor."
