    most times it a damaged video driver or avi that hangs windows start up. bot into safe mode use a drive sweeper remove the video driver and your avi. (make sure you only have one loaded :). also use ms config and turn every thing off in start up.
    reboot if the error gone it was a damaged program in start up or the driver. reload the video driver and avi and reboot. if error gone then go into msconfig and slowly turn one program on at time. if no of them hang your error is gone.

    download that and install it.

    on cold boot hit f8 and go into safe mode.
    type msconfig
    http://support.gateway.com/s/software/microsof/vista/7515418/7515418su75.shtml
    unchecked everything that there.
    go to programs...
    uninstall
    looks for the name of your anti virus software. (ie mcafees or nortons)
    uninstall it.
    dont reboot.
    use drive sweeper
    remover your ati or nvidia driver.
    reboot.
    if it goes into windows fine it may be fixed or it a registry issue.

  6. Hi,
    I had the same problem on 2 computers (Win7 32 bit).
    As Lukin (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/14321-63-startup-delay-login-screen-blank-screen-cursor#bas) suggested, I looked into the network problem.
    I had network drives assigned to a NAS that is not always available ---
    apparently the system tries to connect to them upon startup.
    I deleted the drive associations, and now both computers start as they are supposed to.
    Thanks!
  7. Hello,
    Please check in the BOOT menu to enable BOTH UEFI and legacy systems. That did the trick for me :P

    Tilak.
