Just today, I came back to my computer to find that my HDMI input went blue for no reason! After troubleshooting to no avail, I switched to VGA and was able to get it to work.

Now, after Win7 loads and brings me to the main accounts screen, all I can see is my mouse cursor and nothing else.

I am currently in safe mode and I have rolled back my video drivers, but still am unable to get it to boot regularly.

Did a spybot and ad-aware scan and I don't think it is a virus.

I would hate to think it is my video card, but I recently (about 3 weeks ago) installed one and was not sure if my 850 watt power supply was enough to support 2 ATI 5850s. I don't think that is the issue either, but perhaps my PSU finally had enough...

Anyways, I am just sitting here trying to figure out what to do... Thankfully I can move my entire computer to a backup drive if need be, but I would like to avoid that.

Also, there are no backups or restore points... apparently that is not an automatically enabled feature on Win7.

Any help is appreciated.

I'm a little surprised that it's in safe mode and still not responding. This may be a bit extreme, but have you tried to do a clean install? Granted, you'll lose whatever you're not able to backup, but it might help you rule out that it's not your video card...or support your theory.

Microsoft also has other suggestions on this page that you may find helpful: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Resolving-stop-blue-screen-errors-in-Windows-7

Safe mode is working fairly well, but booting regularly is not working. Do you think that I may not have enough power?
