My computer (Win7)no longer wants to boot up. I've had this problem before, and even a system restore didn't fix the problem. I later noticed that it was related to my printer being on during start up. Turning it off would solve the issue every time.
Except today. I've also unplugged all others USB devices, but to no avail. It goes through half of the POST before the screen goes black and unresponsive. My monitor still does recognise some type of input, though, because it doesn't go on stand by.
Strangely, I can't even get to system restore and safe mode any more. F8 does not respond (don't remember if it used to), but F5 leads me to the Boot manager, where I can select advanced options by pressing F8, or do a memory diagnostic (which didn't solve the issue).
Pressing F8, here, unfortunately also gives me a blank screen (pressing enter, delete or escape doesn't do anything either). Once, I waited really long, and it went to start up repair (which is supposed to be one of the options in the menu that is supposed to appear), but despite applying some changes, it didn't actually repair the start up.
I don't see what other options I have, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
