Hello everyone,

server info - server 2008 r2,  nothing had changed and all was alright until the server froze and we had to hard boot it.  Next the system came up asking if it could scan for problems and we said yes........after two days of waiting we hard booted it again and now we are at the black screen with mouse.
Things I have tried:
replacing COMPONENTS, DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM regs with reg backups.
startrep.exe
chkdsk etc.

Im just looking for more different ways to combat this problem that I haven't found on the net.

Please help
thank you
