My windows 7 laptop won't load past the welcome screen. It was working fine and then on google chrome I got impatient while it wasn't opening a new tab. I clicked on it a lot. Then it completely crashed, I couldn't open task manager or anything.

So I held the power button to turn it off, and it did. I just started windows normally thinking it crashed and it would be fine. It said the windows/welcome thing with the logo and then went off, loaded the curser and it just stopped there.

It let you move the curser for a few seconds with lag but then there no movement. I haven't downloaded anything recently so I have no idea what to do.

Please help me because I need it a lot for my GCSE's. I would prefer to keep all my old stuff but if I can't then its ok, as long as it will work.

Hi Callums,

As you have mentioned the computer works fine in the safe mode, perform a clean boot to check if it resolves the problem. To get the steps on how to perform a clean boot, check the below mentioned link:


Do reply with results.
I've the same situation. I did a clean boot, but when I do the normal startup and restart, it still hangs on the Welcome screen. Pls help~
The clean boot suggestion is useless considering it tells you you need to start at the start menu and the computer isn't even making it that far to begin with. Great help.

when booting your computer keep pressing F8 until you get to the advance boot section, will be several options arrow down to "disable automatic reboot upon system crash" (well will say something similar in that nature)
