hi,
If this happened recently your Power Supply may be going out. Another may be you RAM, but I'd bet on Power Supply for now.

hi,
i think the problem occurs due to Power supply.The power supply can't power the graphics card to boot in proper manner. Change the PSU and problem will be solve.

Re: Black screen after Windows logo and pc hangs

At the inicial load goes into ram and it hands over to the hard drive on the first reboot when the install starts you will see the drivers being loaded into ram during this install it asks if you wish to load any third party drivers with f6[Safe Mode gets stuck at Mup.sys and VGA Mode] this would indicate the op.system is already loaded if it is boot into the recovery console and run chkdsk /r.

Re: Black screen after Windows logo and pc hangs

Try follow this step to slove the problem:
  • Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.
  • Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.
  • Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.
  • Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)
  • Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.
  • OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.
