This week I fixed a computer that booted through the Welcome screen and the login screen to a totally black screen with only the white cursor and nothing else. The poor cursor was in total darkness! I tried booting into Safe Mode and Last Good Configuration (that worked) and still the cursor stood alone. Heigh-ho the dairy-o, the cursor stood alone.
2. Then defragmented the drive.
3. Also I ran Malwarebytes and AVG on it.
4. After this I put the hard drive back in its own case and it booted up all the way through to the desktop. Yay!!! But it took 3 minutes and 30 seconds to boot. Too slow.
5. So I ran Malwarebytes and AVG again and did all my usual tricks to speed up the computer. When I was finished it booted in 40 seconds. Not bad, huh?
