Windows won't boot past login screen

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Guys, I need some help here. Like, urgently. You're the best I know and I'm sure someone out there can help out

My computer's acting up. I start it, put in my password and hit enter, the screen goes black and nothing. It's frozen. I've tried system restore and that only fixed it for a few hours. I've tried startup repair, had no effect. I tried scanning the full system for viruses, and nothing was found.

Anyone have anything I can do to fix this?

Are you overclocked? If you are then you should revert back to stock to see if it works. Another thing you can try is to run windows repair which happens before the login screen. I personally think system restores do jack diddly with anything.

I am overclocked so I'll try that. Also I did run windows repair from the CD, it was over pretty quickly and reset for me. After loging in it gave me the same response. That is to say, none.

Some more information: Tried doing system restore again, and that failed to solve to problem completely. Not even temporarily. I opened it up a few days ago to get the dust out with a can of compressed air, in case that helps someone diagnose the problemThe computer seems to work in safe mode, which I'll use to transfer over save games and other important items of mine in case I have to nuke it from orbit.

But I really really really don't want to do that.

Okay so I tried what Onex said and that seems to have allowed me back in for the time being. Keywords time being. If it starts acting up again I'll be back here.
And thanks. Both of you. smile.gif
