    black screen after windows logo with movable cursor

    Hi everyone. My computer is encountering a black screen with a movable cursor after the windows logo on start up. When I start from safe mode (safe mode, safe mode with cmd prompt) it does the same thing.

    One thing that I've noticed is that when I run it in safe mode it stops at crcdisk.dll and continues on to the black screen.

    I have no idea what could be causing this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You have a hard drive issue reading the SATA hard drive. What started the
    problem? I had it on an upgrade when windows was not loading a driver needed
    for the SATA drives.

    Re: black screen after windows logo with movable cursor

    Yesterday I was cleaning up my computer (deleting programs, files, etc) and it was fine. It wasn't till this morning when I turned it on that I encountered this black screen. It's right after the login screen but instead of going to my desktop it goes to a black screen with a movable cursor. Ctr+Alt+Del or Ctr+Shift+Esc don't work either.

    The weird thing is that I'm on my laptop now but I can connect to that computer (the one with the problem) via my network. When it's on the black screen I can connect to it and take files (I have file sharing on) which makes me think its not a hard drive problem.

    Worst comes to worst I can reformat seeing as I have all my important files from it but I'm trying to avoid that.

    Yes the hard drive on you desktop is working or you would not have black
    screen with the cursor.
    The problem is that the OS on it appears to be corrupt and therefore it will
    not complete the boot process.
    Since your post does not include your past posts in this thread I do not
    know what OS your are running.
    Depending on the OS you may be able to run a repair install booting the
    installation disk from the systems optical drive.

    Consider trying Safe Mode and running System Restore.

    Regardless if I run in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, or normal mode it still does the same thing.

    I'm running windows vista ultimate (64 bit)
