At first I thought it was the monitor, because the little light on it is normally green -- but now, when fully booted up and with the black screen, it was the same yellow as it is when the computer is turned off. But considering that it's working fine now that I'm in safe mode, plus the fact that it displays everything while booting up, I don't think that's the case. I checked to make sure that no cables had fallen off or anything as well. I do have an old monitor somewhere on the attic though, if you think it'd be worth a shot to hook that up instead...?
I'm currently running a virus check (AVG Free), but so far it hasn't come up with anything -- and at this rate I don't think it will either.
I honestly have no idea what could be wrong here. Software, hardware, virus/malware, Windows issue... I have no idea. So I apologize if this is in the wrong forum
