    Hi,

    Basically, my laptop starts up, goes to the login screen, but instead of a login screen my screen goes black and all i can see is my mouse curser.

    I have googled around abit but haven't come to a solution.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    I had this problem. I then realized that my refresh rate was messed up so I re-installed my video drivers and reset the refresh rate. You have to go in to safe mode at boot, so hit F8.

    Didn't work, i still get the black screen and such.
    Guess i'll have to reinstall.
