Hi DaniWeb community,

I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to computers and ANY help would be greatly appeciated. Early today, i booted up my computer as normal, opened up a few programs and my computer froze (as sometimes happens), i rebooted like it do whenever it freezes yet strangely it wouldnt start up again!. It'd go through the black screen with all the writing then to the windows loading bar then to an all black screen with my mouse pointer in the middle and the computer would stop loading and i'd just be stuck there. I can start the computer in safe mode fine (as im on it now).

- I havent installed any new hardware recently
- I havent installed any new software recently

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thankyou!

That can be caused by number of things.

1. Corrupted registry.
2. Corrupted files. (system or programs)
3. Dying hardware (HD, RAM, Mobo...)

You should try booting in safe mode (press and hold f8 while booting) and look in your event viewer (in "administrative tools" <- might be that you would have to check the "display administrative tools" in Start/settings/taskbar and start menu/start menu/customize). In the event viewer look for the entries with the time-stamp of your latest failed boot attempt, and look for the errors and/or alerts. If any, please post them.

Also, while you're at it, look in Control panel/system/hardware/device manager, and if any of the listed devices are marked with red cross (disabled) or yellow triangle (not started), please post that too.

Oh, yeah, Your hardware specs, please...
