pc not booting windows 7

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel duel core / 2gb ram
Hi my PC has been working perfectly running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium until 3 days ago. It boots up until where the log in screen should be displayed, then nothing. I have a mouse pointer which moves so I'm assuming the PC hasn't crashed. I have removed all devices which may cause a conflict and have tested memory modules for faults etc. I have checked the HDD which is fine with no bad sectors.
I have tried running in safe mode and the same thing happens.
I have tried pressing F8 during Windows boot to run diagnostics, repair PC etc but nothing works...
To discount the possibility of a virus, I have also tried to boot the PC from the install disk but just get a mouse pointer when the disk has finished loading.
Could it be my graphics card?
I would appreciate any further ideas as I'm fast running out of them!!

Thanks

If you mean install disk as in the Windows 7 dvd from microsoft then you have some real problem. One ought to be able to at least get to the memory diagnostics.

Try a ultimate boot cd to try to run memtest. Then move on to other tests.

If you have onboard graphics, then you can remove the card and see if there is any change (you may have to reset graphics in BIOS).
You have not posted much in the way of system specs, this and any changes to: Hardware, Software, Drivers, and Windows updates recently may help us help you.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
