Black screen of death - windows Server 2008

Our domain controller is comi g with onlu a black screen with the mouse. We are unable to log in because the ctrl alt del does not appear just stays black. We have tried safe mode, safe mode with networking, last known good configuration, directory services recovery mode, debugging mode, etc... with no luck. This happened after applying a test gpo that applied admin right to a user to assist in upgrading an erp software.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

My guess here would be a hardware problem, possible hard drive.

Is this a single drive, or RAID?

You said you applied a GP... I hope the domain controller is in a different OU than the PC you applied the gp to?
