My computer decided to just not work yesterday afternoon. I wasn't home at the time and my roommate was using my computer. He told me that the internet wasnt working and that he just tried to restart it to make it work. Upon restarting my computer it says "Windows is loading files" (which has never happened before), then just stays on a black screen with an enlarged mouse point that I can move around. I have tried starting in safe mode, going back to last known good config, and booting up with the install disk. They all end up doing the same doing the same thing.
Any help would be much appreciated because I have my final project work on this computer and need to get it done in a months time. Even just help with getting all my files off it and wiping it clean. If you need any more info, let me know. I usually just surf the forums trying to find a fix to my computer problems but I have spent all night and morning looking with no success.
If it helps to know, my comp is running Windows 7 and Linux.
I don't know the specs off the top of my head but can find them.
It didn't work. It does the same thing it does before. Says windows is loading files and just sits at a black screen with my mouse pointer. I have a feeling that it might be a virus. I was being stupid and installed a "java" update. Could this cause this problem?
