Vista Black Screen

I have a self built PC running Vista 32 bit, and I got a problem.

The PC after booting up goes black with only the cursor visible on the when the welcome screen is to be displayed. I cannot Right click, CTRL+ALT+DEL, bring up the start menu or anything besides move my mouse around, Safe mode does not work either.

I do not have the Vista CD with me (off at college) and I was wondering if there was anything I could try to fix this.

    My Vista's been dicking up too, of late. A recovery CD is available online

    They cast a shadow like a sundial in the morning light. It was half past 10.

    Thanks, downloading the disk now.

    All I need now is a blank cd and friend with a computer....

    Edit: No blank CD's but my friend has a recovery disk sweet.
