After about 5 minutes it says "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation."

I think this error is related to you having to specify the correct drive letters.
"offbootdir" is the system reserved partition
"offwindir" is the Windows directory on the drive you would like to fix
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/termss/p/sfc-command-system-file-checker.htm
You used: sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows
I mention because your log mentions E: & X: as well.
Drive c: () (Fixed) (Total:252.95 GB) (Free:152.69 GB) NTFS ==>[Drive with boot components (obtained from BCD)]
Drive d: (Lenovo) (Fixed) (Total:30.38 GB) (Free:28.43 GB) NTFS
Drive e: () (Fixed) (Total:14.65 GB) (Free:3.57 GB) NTFS ==>[System with boot components (obtained from reading drive)]
Drive h: (2008_03_29_2201) (Removable) (Total:7.55 GB) (Free:7.33 GB) NTFS
Drive x: (Boot) (Fixed) (Total:0.03 GB) (Free:0.03 GB) NTFS

Of course to really know for sure in the Command prompt type
diskpart
to enter the Disk Partitioning Console, then type
list volume
now view (& post) your machine's volume details

{User7, do not try until Essexboy comments}
Essexboy, thoughts ?
Would/Could it be ?......  sfc /scannow /offbootdir=x:\ /offwindir=c:\windows

Use thekochs as X should be the system reserved partition

Not sure if it matters but the systems thinks windows is booting correctly.  At the black screen I can use the hotkey to put the system to sleep, and if I press crtl+alt+del I get the thinking pointer icon like it's prepping to let me login.  When I use last known good config it reverts to the same startup.  I'm going to try sfc on D:.

This is after you see the Windows Logo w/scroll bar and before the user login ?
In other words the Windows logo goes away, then black screen with mouse pointer then shows ?
And you've left the PC sit there for say....an hour.....in that state to see if it finally loads ?

Correct, I've let it sit for at least 2 - 3 hours.  It will even go to the generic screen saver. I did list volume, transcribed below:

Volume  ###    LTR   Label             Fs          Type               Size        Status        info
Volume   0          F                                       DVD ROM        0B          No media
Volume   1         C                        NTFS        Partition         253 GB    Healthy
Volume   2         D    Lenovo          NTFS       Partition           30 GB    Healthy
Volume   3         E                         NTFS        Partition           15 GB    Healthy
Volume   4         G                                       Removable        0   B      No Media
Volume   5         H  2008_03_29_    NTFS      Removable        7727MB    Healthy

To me that suggests a video driver, as it is about that stage that it takes over from the windows one

Agree....sounds like it but wouldn't it boot into Safe Mode or VGA then be OK ?

User7, is this a desktop PC or laptop ?
If laptop, one other thing to try is to connect an external monitor to the PC and when the screen goes black see if an image comes up on the monitor. You may have some odd setting that just changed the active display on you.....just a thought.
If desktop and you have on-board graphic controller with a graphics add-in card......pull the gfx card and set the BIOS to use the onboard.
............see if any of the above show anything.

The next option would be to get a boot/rescue CD and boot into that environment and remove/uninstall the graphics drivers.....just go back to Windows default. Perhaps bob3160 can suggest best bootCD ?......there are a lot out there (Hiren's , UBCD, BartPE, etc.)....here's some suggestions: http://lifehacker.com/5984707/five-best-system-rescue-discs

It's a laptop, but I don't have an external monitor available.  I'll see what I can rig up, maybe I can try the HDMI output.

Maybe to your TV ?....I'd boot down the PC, hook up the cable/TV, then cold boot (power-on) the laptop.

Did you update a video driver lately ?
Do you know what video chip (vendor) is on the laptop ?
What brand & model # is the laptop ?

I'll try to hook it up tonight.  It's a lenovo ideapad Y550.  Thanks again.  I'll report back after I try the HDMI hookup.

I have the same thing on the TV now, black screen, white pointer.  The computer responds to the switch display hotkey and mirrors the LCD on the TV.

I can also get the sticky keys window at the black screen by pressing shift 5x.  The dialog box looks like normal, background black.  I click cancel and box disappears.
