What actually happens when you boot first time? Please go into detail as to exactly what the computer does and doesn't do!

boots to the first part where bar goes across the screen as though its loading then just sits there,if I then press the reset button I will load to my deasktop no problem

I would also like to suggest Advanced Windows Care from Iobit. It's a great program and free, but has an upgrade for a reasonable fee to get extra tools. Also has smart defrag(free), gamebooster(free for standard version). Another thought is making sure that all of your drivers are up to date. I have and Nvidia card and was having similar problems. If it is stopping on boot, it appears that some driver is having trouble being loaded. May just be a simple matter of defragging the drive. The event viewer, aforementioned, may give some insight as to the problem.
