Windows 7 hangs on black screen before welcome screen appears...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First of all hello everyone.

This has started this since i installed loads of fonts for the computer and i noticed a decline in performance.

I had to delete the fonts through msdos as the gui would just lock up when trying to do so.

Ever since i have deleted the fonts on bootup the computer hangs on a black screen with a cursor and then after a while will load like normal to the welcome screen.

Can anybody help, or has anybody had a similar problem...

Thank you.

Hi,
Couple of possibilities could suggest that your computer has virus (unlikely), maybe some leftover files/programs still exist in the computer's main drives, or maybe its nothing because its normal for windows 7 to have a minor transitioning period (unless it takes like 5+ minutes which could mean that you need to disable sleep mode because there is a bug that is associated with sleep mode as a computer is initiating bios components but it might just be bios). So, try updating bios along with other updating/reinstalling components. I know driver/device software is loaded with bios before the log in screen appears.

Hopefully this helps.

You could open up Msconfig and select load system services only (Selective startup). That will hopefully solve your problem(s)

However I too had this problem before on my laptop & that didn't work, i couldn't figure out what driver (&/or) software was the cause or whatever.

In the end i just re installed windows, didn't take long at all, quicker then fault finding, and hasn't happened again yet.
