Problem when booting

  1. I've just experienced some problem with my computer.

    Yesterday I had been using my computer as usual, but today when i tried to start it, it wouldn't work.

    It just boots and when it's about to start the "Windows Loading" thing, it just turns black.

    can it be that the video card is burnt? although it's working, everything works as usual, i just see that black screen and can't do anything about it, not even use the safemode.

    here's my comp info:

    Mobo dfi nf4 ultra-D
    ram corsair 1 gb xpert 3200 XL
    proc 3700 sandy
    psu thermal take pure power 460 w
    video gainward gf7800gtx 256
    2 sata drives
    zalman reservou plus water cooling system

    the computer is 8 months old and own build.

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you get into safemode? F8 while booting

    Nope, it won't let me.

    Any ideas?

    Could be video card or memory module, you need to swap them out if you can get spares somewhere temporarily.
