Black screen when done installing windows 7


Mar 21, 2008

I recently purchased a new PC. Today I installed windows 7 for the first time. It was going along fine until windows had to load for the first time (after extracting and installing files..), then the screen just went black. But I could see the HDs ticking a little like the rest of the system was running fine. The "booting windows" logo shows up, but then it goes black.

I figure it must be some kind of problem with the driver for my grafix carc and windows 7 (but I'm kind of helpless as I don't get the chance of reinstalling the driver). I've tried starting up in safe mode, but windows 7 wont let me do that because the installation isn't finished!

So, any help is much appreciated - I'm run out of ideas :(

Here's the specs:

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UDP4
GFX: Sapphire Radeon HD 4670
CPU: Intel core i7 920
RAM: Corsair XMS3 3x2048MB
PSU: Corsair 620 HX

OS: Windows 7 Pro x64

installing sometimes takes a lot of time. when it went to black screen and your HDD was flickering it means it still works on it.. it happened to me too but you have to wait.
try to install it again and wait..
how long did you wait with that black screen?
