First of all I realise my problem is like a few others on here but I have tried everything on the other questions and nothing worked.

So the problem is that my computer gets stuck on load screen, the windows 7 logo comes up and does the animation. about 30 seconds later I hear the windows login sound (used to take only a few seconds)

What happened is that I had my computer in hibernate mode and then a power outage occured.

What I've tried:

  • Safe mode into reboot
  • Safe mode to remove anti virus
  • start in 'no gui mode' <- this removed the windows logo but it didn't get replaced with anything, just black screen
  • startup repair
  • diskcheck
  • system restore <- gives an error saying it isn't working properly and won't let me continue
  • Full system scan with AVG and Combofix
  • Reset CMOS

Nothing of the above helped, any ideas?

edit: In no gui mode it shows a series of small horizontal blue-ish lines at the top of the screen edit 2: I've found out that the problem is in the file that saves your ram onto your hdd. Problem is that I can't edit hibernation or the file from safe mode, which is the only mode i can get the computer to run in.

when I try powercfg -H off it gives me the following error

Hibernation failed with the following error: The request is not supported. The following items are preventing hibernation on this system. VgaSave. An internal system component has disabled hibernation

Try resetting the cmos with the jumper labeled clear CMOS, or, unplug the computer, plug in something that charges off USB and hold the power button down for a few mins to drain the CMOS battery, this happened to me once about a month ago, first time I'd seen it, except I had it worse, where it wouldn't even post till I cleared the CMOS and was able to tell it was supposed to be in sleep mode. – user88311 Jun 28 '13 at 12:35
Forgot to add that one, I have also tried resetting the cmos. I did this by pulling the battery out, though. – Jente van Heuverswyn Jun 28 '13 at 12:41
