    Default Windows 7 Welcome/Login Screen Does Not Load

    My laptop has recently suffered from a recurring 0x24 stop error during boot, that had brought me to perform a CHKDSK, which replaced "invalid security IDs" for seemingly every file, with the default IDs. After this, Windows was able to boot, but will now stop on a plain background with just the cursor. The "Welcome"/login screen never loads. I have attempted safe mode as well, but the same problem occurs.



    Since discovering this issue, I have attempted:
    • "Last known good configuration," which yields no notable results.
    • Startup repair tool, which repaired what it had determined to be a bad bootsector, but only removed my custom boot animation. (I'll fix it later.)
    • An additional CHKDSK, which did fix a couple things, it said, but nothing of true relevance.
    • System Restore...but apparently all my restore options are gone. D:
    • Memory test, which claims that the system memory has no problems.


    I'm here seeking possible causes, "do's" and "don't's," and possible fixes. Thank you for your help in advance.

    Well, I had attempted using the disc for a repair, but it never caught anything such as that.
