as always with start problems...

In reply to: Have you googled that?

1.try starting in safe mode.
if boot, go to start-run, type msconfig, turn off (uncheck) some item-group (startup group), reboot, to begin narrowing down area of problem. If startup group, then go to that tab and uncheck unneeded or suspicious items.
2. if no safemode, reboot and choose "command prompt only". At prompt, type scandisk C: and hit enter.
3. if no go, it may be a harware issue.
