My 15-in late 2011 MBP boots to a black screen.  When I hit the power button I hear the chime, the hard drive sounds likes it runs, and the caps lock key lights up too.  The screen will stay black, skipping the apple logo and the loading circle, until it gets to the login page.  Then the screen turns on and the Mac runs fine.  My problem is I have a windows on Bootcamp and I can't get to it holding down the option key because the screen stays black.  Need help please!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
