Question about Computers & Internet
Start the pc. As soon as something appears on the screen, hit the F8 key several times. This will take you to a list. Use your arrows to highlight last known good configuration. Hit enter and see if windows boots. If not, power the pc off for a couple of seconds then power it up. As soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key again. This time highlight safe mode and hit enter. If it boots to safe mode, when it's done booting, do a system restore. Go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date a couple of days ago and let it do it's thing. It has to reboot. It will do that on it's own. That should fix you up. If this fixws your problem please rate this as fixed. If it didn't fix it and you need more help don't rate it yet.Just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further with this. Thanks.

Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.
This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.
Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.
This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.
If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."
If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."
This will open the System Configuration Utility.
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.
A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.
Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.
If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.
Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally
hope this helps
