Hello,

When you switch ON your notebook, keep pressing "F8" key to get "Windows

Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears click on "Esc" key and keep pressing

F8 key). When "Windows Advanced Options" appears then

Try "Last known good configuration"

or

Go to "Safe Mode" and perform "System Restore"

If the problem still exists

Go to safe mode

Click on Start--->Run-->type msconfig and click OK

System Configuration Utility will be opened.

Click on "Services" tab, select the option "Hide all Microsoft services"(you can find

this option at bottom)-->then click on "Disable All" button.

Click on "Startup" tab and click on "Disable All" button.

then click on OK, now try to boot in normal mode.

Later enable your serivces and startup items.

Chels,

Jack as a very interesting solution. I bet your bottom dollar or rupee that it will work.
