Windows 7 Won't Load -- Black Screen
by rolen05 - 4/15/10 4:09 PM
I have a Dell Latitude E6400 running Windows 7.
Today my computer decided it no longer wanted to load Windows. I was surfing the web fine and then it suddenly locked up. After I had to force a restart, I get that Dell logo going as it loads, and then after that instead of loading the operating system it will just stay at a black screen. If I stare at the black screen long enough the computer will restart itself and I will repeat the same process.
I tried to go into safe mode. Kept pressing F8, and the safe mode boot option would never load. It would just keep shooting pass the "Dell" screen and into my black screen as if it never registered my F8. This has never happened to me before; no idea why I can't even get the safe mode option to load up.
I ran diagnostics, and it says the hard drive is still functioning.
Any idea what is going on here?
