If you look very close, you can see the windows logo as it all boots up but it is very very dim, almost can't see it at all. Is there anything else it could be? I followed the above postings to try to fix my problem. But now it will not boot up!

For anyone else that stumbles across this problem I am posting my working /etc/default/grub file below.
