    Hi,
    I have a rather large problem here: When I turn my computer on, I get the normal BIOS loading screen, but after that, the Windows logo doesn't appear. The video card is functional, my monitor is receiving a signal, except that signal is visibly just blackness.
    I have tried various things I found on the web, but nothing worked.
    Any solutions?

    P.S. I would rather not do a hard reset. I have hardly backed up anything :/

    Can you boot from USB?

    Have you tried a repair tool that can boot from USB?

    Same thing happens on my 8.1 PC (not very often)
    there is a 'delay' before showing windows logo.
    I usually wait out ... (less than 1 min)
    If not push the restart button.

    If you think the OS is corrupted try pressing F11 or F8 while starting.
    If that doesnt work....
    Download the windows ISO via mac and then transfer it to a flash drive and then boot from the flash drive.

    The BIOS manages to load the RAM (my BIOS loading screen shows all the hardware as it loads)

    Try this also ... Pull out the ram and clean the slots and contacts with a brush. .. Might be a simple ram issue ..
    Dust might get in between and mess up stuff.

    I am the most confused person in the planet right now:
    After the 100000000th attempt to restart the computer, I did Ctrl+Alt+Del to do so (for the 100000000th time too) and when I rebooted, I held shift and basically destroyed the F8 key. The screen flashed, and windows has booted normally. And I am very confused.

    okay one more tip ...
    while booting press F8 again and select Last known good configuration ... that should settle things !
