    first of all, i wanna say this is my first post on these forums, hence i really need help if i was required to make an account and post about it >.<

    ok so the problem im having is with the boot of windows 7. it started yesterday evening, for the first time since i had windows 7 i clicked log out instead of restart and my PC got a dead blue screen, vista style...so i rebooted and my monitor wasnt working but windows 7 was (i could hear skype and msn logging in)
    i knew what the problem was, had the same thing in XP as well when i shut down my pc after i unplugged my monitor and the usual solution was to start in safe mode and restore my system to a previous date
    and so i did, i restored it to 3 feb, when windows 7 update detected some new ati drivers and installed them...
    all fine and dandy, windows loads, monitor works...mouse appears on the black screen, i wait...and wait...and 2 houres later its still the same, a white cursor that i can move on the black screen...nothing else, ctrl-alt-del or ctrl-shift-esc wont work, alt-f4 either...actually its like...stuck...
    tried safe mode, the same...
    tried almost every boot option, same...

    now im on windows xp (i wouldnt risk installing 7 on my normal HDD so i installed it on a different partition, dual boot ftw) and trying to figure what else i can do without erasing all my settings :)

    if anyone can help me out, i would be deeply apreciative
