I am having an intermittent problem with Windows 7 Professional (x64) on both the machines I have a copy on.
Occasionally I will boot up, the start up animation happens, then the Windows welcome screen and finally it will go black with a white cursor on which can be moved.
Rebooting will does nothing for it, the only way it is fixed is to boot into low resolution mode and then increase it to the setting I usually use. It’s a work around, but just seems odd.
The laptop one copy is installed on is a Compaq Presario V6000 and I was running Window 7 Ultimate RC on it with no problem, and the other machine is a custom build hi spec one. Both have the most up-to-date drivers on and good hard drives.
Hope someone can point me in the right direction or even a Microsoft helpline I could phone as it’s annoying that software I paid for is messing up.
