Safe mode gives black screen with mouse pointer

Today, I wanted to test my PSU because it's making strange noises lately under load. So to exclude that my graphics card had anything to do with it, I went into safe mode but when I did that I discovered it ain't working anymore.. All I get is a black screen and if I move my mouse, I can see the pointer on the screen along with the "Safe Mode" text in the corners "Veilige Modus" in dutch. I tried CTRL + ALT +DEL but none of the combo's bring up something.

Can someone help me out?

Here are some pictures:

Possible the noise is either coming from PSU or Graphics card, possible fan. Anything done just before this happened, installed a driver update, windows update or hardware. Could be driver issue with Video card, conflict and or corrupted system files.

Have Windows 8.1 Pro disc or was it preinstalled or a USB Recovery drive or disc image backup ? Was the PSU being dead already would not of started, but still can have issue, leaning towards Video card hardware or drivers.

I'm sure the noise is coming from the PSU, but I read on the internet that the noise could be caused from the GPU, Anyhow. I'm typing this from this computer I'm able to start into normal mode, but as you can see in the pictures not in "Safe-Mode". Other than the PSU making noise it's working fine but as it's annoying I will RMA it anyway. But now I was hoping you could help me fixing my Safe-Mode problem as that needs to be fixed also :)

Btw, I have a .iso file from a windows 8.1 (with update1) copy that I can burn on a pendrive if needed.

No, Sorry if I'm not clear enough. It's happening all the time, but let's forget about the PSU for now, I will just have to RMA it because the noise is annoying, but otherwise it's fine. But for testing purposes I restarted in safe mode and then I discovered this new problem with safe-mode no longer working on my computer (don't know since when because it was a long time ago I last entered it). So is there any way so I can boot in safe mode again? To be clear: normal mode is working fine as I said just safe mode ain't. Pictures are in the first post btw.

Access Admin Command Prompt from Start button on desktop copy and paste this and press enter, let it finish
sfc /scannow

Same Command Prompt copy and paste this and press enter, let it finish can take time too

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Have a Slot Video card, correct ? Chances we need to roll back to other drivers.

You're getting error 0x800f0906 and SFC can not fix most likely because you have a Windows update KB3022345 installed.
Many had this issue, as causes no harm to the system for now until a fix for some.

Which is strange about your issue is in most cases a blank safe mode screen would be same problem as when you boot to your desktop.
Have newest drivers for this card installed NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL

Try Safe mode again ?

One option for now is to either remove the Video card from inside the PC, as let it run off integrated card on the motherboard or disable it in the Device manager, rule out card problem. Only thing makes me think how can be, is why it only happens in safe mode. As to what made you feel Video card was bad, just noise you heard ?

Just updated my video drivers to version 353.30, Still experiencing the same problem. I personally don't think it's the GPU because I can see the mouse pointer (picture 2) when moving my mouse. Also I'm scared that disabling my graphics card in device manager will result a black screen in normal mode too. And as I'm not sure that I can enter safe mode for enabling it again afterwards..

As you can see windows only detects my GTX 670 anyway: http://i.imgur.com/WqwoJJM.png

One question, did not answer before, Anything done just before this happened, installed a driver update, windows update or hardware ? Does not seem to be Video card in other ways because have more issues then just safe mode, but can happen this way i feel just see the cursor. Can remove it from PC is best way, PC then will use the integrated card, still get a picture, no worries. Just hook monitor to that port on back, instead of slot cards port for now.

We can exclude it being the graphics card, Just connected my screen to the motherboard enabled my iGPU and disabled my GTX 670 in task manager still the same problem so it must be something within windows.

Should of removed card altogether then integrated be the only, might be o.k. this way, hopefully not conflcit with it's drivers (slot card).
Said before had a ISO of Windows 8.1 Pro, use this need to make a bootable flash drive, can use Rufus to make one Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

Other choices would be to try a reset or refresh from PC settings within Windows 8.1. Only reason to use a disc was to try to repair windows if it was happening on desktop too. Since appears to be only in safe mode, again which seems odd, not sure running repair from OS disc will be needed. Either choice your going to loose what software put on. Make the USB bootable Flash Drive from the disc for future use or if want to do a clean install.

Well thankyou, But I was thinking when I make a pendrive I can follow the "Repair Install" guide and not loose any files. But I think for now I wil just leave it like this then. I don't really need safe mode (only when I'm in trouble) and with Windows 10 coming out.. Maybe after updating to 10 my problem will also be solved.. You never know.

If you want to try doing repair make USB Flash with the software i showed, run it see if it helps. Can't feel hardware would cause an issue like this.
Time being safe mode may help you out of a problem in next 28 days till Windows 10. As far as noise open case try to pinpoint exactly where sound is coming from, one person told me good way, use tube hold one end to your ear and other move around case. Could even be something hitting a fan inside Power Supply or fan in case or Video card. Because may RMA power supply, but want to make sure since no issues being caused by it, just annoyance of it. Other issues, bad fan or electronics inside Power supply. Your welcome for help, anytime !!
