How do I make Windows 7 boot further than a blank screen with only a mouse cursor?

While installing Autodesk Inventor 2010 on my Windows 7 laptop, my system froze.

Since that incident, it won't start again. I end up on a black screen with only the mouse visible. The same happens in safemode. I already tried the ideas mentioned on How do I make Windows 7 boot further than a blank screen with only a mouse cursor? without success... Any ideas?

did not see that, but it does not help at all^^ – Urinprobe Nov 14 '11 at 14:33
yup, none of that works for me... – Urinprobe Nov 14 '11 at 14:36
Would be good to edit your question and add a list of what you've tried and that you've seen the duplicates, so it won't get closed. – slhck Nov 14 '11 at 14:39
Perhaps update your question with all that you've tried (and the results) so that there will be a better chance that this will be considered a different question (doubtful). Otherwise consider adding a bounty to the other question to garner better answers. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 14 '11 at 14:39

I would see if the computer can boot in safe mode, if it does. See if you can uninstall autodesk.

as I said, safemode does not help, is gets stuck at the same place – Urinprobe Nov 14 '11 at 14:30
