Start in Safe Mode, no command prompt, no networking.

If machine starts.... Re-install your chipset drivers first. Re-boot, come back to safe mode.
"update" (re-install) all other drivers (no restarts)

Try normal re-start.

Works=Yes, Cool
Works=No, Go back to Safe Mode and disable every piece of hardware that you don't need to start Windows (including video card, yes, you will get a screen with it disabled).
Try normal re-start.

Works=Yes, Cool, now enable each device, one at a time, restarting after each enable.
Works=No, Go back to Safe Mode and Un-Install every piece of hardware that you don't need to start Windows.
Try normal re-start.

Works=Yes, Cool... Watch! as windows will be discovering new hardware and loading drivers automatically for most of them. When it gets to the bad one, it may crash, or hang. Remember which one it was working on at the time and get rid of that device.
Works=No, Re-install Windows from scratch.
