Hello,
My windows 7 pc locked up so did a hard boot. Not it is hanging on the "starting windows" screen. In safe mode same thing, but can see the last driver listed before hanging is null.sys. I see the hard drive light continuing to flash after waiting 30 or so minutes no change.

I've tried regular boot, last known good boot, safe mode, startup repair... they all hang.

Any suggestions on getting this pc booted or what the issue is? Not sure if hard drive ran out of space due to some operation or maybe a virus or something else.

Disconnect your optical drives , do it 1 by 1.
