windows 7 black screen safe mode

February 22, 2011 at 11:00:32
Specs: Windows 7, 8GB DDR3, i7 2.67GHz
windows 7 64 bit dell studio 1749 dual booted with ubuntu

when i boot windows 7 i get a black screen after the 'starting windows' screen, i cannot press cntrl-alt-del, ive tried using my recovery disk, and system repair, i gt an error from the recovery disk and system repair just hung so i cut the power 17 hours in.

Even when i boot in safe mode i still get a black screen (with a cursor ofc) and carnt press cntrl-alt-del or cntrl-shift-esc.

Ive tried messing with the bios and windows 7 instalation cd.

help before i take it to be repaired?

When you installed Ubuntu did you set up the dual boot in Linux's boot manager (Grub/Lilo)? Or did you do a BIOS level Dual boot to two separate hard drives?

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