Question about HP OmniBook XE3 Notebook
I had this problem- I often found taking out the battery and unplugging the wire would help, then attemping to re-boot it with both of them in place. It worked for me, but this laptop is so tempremantal!

Try booting to windows safe mode (maybe F8) without networking. If you can get to windows in safe mode run msconfig and disable everything in the startup tab.Also check the entries on the startup tab and see if there is anything suspicious. (possibly a virus?) List them here for help if you like. Once everything on the startup tab has been disabled restart your PC and see if it boots into windows normally. If yes, go back to safe mode, run msconfig again and enable the items on the startup tab. Do one at a time, reboot, etc. I know this is tedious but you'll have to do this to figure out what program is causing the problem. Another thing to try would be to disable all of your network devices in device manager (also in safe mode) and see if the PC will then boot to windows. You might need to uninstall and reinstall network device drivers.
