Win7 Boots to blank screen ( when no windows selected)(w/ video)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im running a dual-boot with a linux distro, when I tried to load Windows 7 its boots to a blank screen. Basically when a window/program is no selected it will not show anything on the screen. It seems to be a glitch caused by a custom color background. I switched the background to an actual picture and it solved the problem.

Are you saying that all you get is a blank screen and must open a window (from task manager) to get started?

Have you dual-booted in the past or was this your first time?

If you do think it is a virus, Malwarebytes Antivirus is the way to go (download the free version)

SOLVED, changed the background from custom color to a picture.
