    No login screen when I boot, even in safe mode.


    One day, I rebooted, and then there was nothing. After Windows finished loading, there was naught but a black screen, and a cursor if I move the mouse quickly. This happens in safe mode as well, and on both my dedicated graphics card (an Asus AMD HD 6450 Silent) and my integrated graphics (which I have no idea about, other than it is a Biostar A780L3G). When I try to refresh directly, with a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 installation media, it says it is invalid, despite it being x64, same as the installed version. When I try directly, it says the HDD is locked, and none of the guides I have followed to unlock it through the disk work. Also, I dont know if this matters or not, but when I try booting into safe mode, at first, when I move the mouse, in the corners, it says Safe Mode. Please respond ASAP.Click image for larger version

    Your on-board card is this one:

    ATI Radeon™ HD3000 Graphics, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512 MB
    Support ATI Hybrid Crossfire

    A780L3G :: Placa-Mãe :: BIOSTAR

    I still could not find anything that could explain your problem. Does your MoBo have any kind of HDD protection, similar to HP DriveLock?

    No, and even if it did, I reset everything to defaults on it, so it would probably be off.
