    i have moved your post to a thread of its own - it gets confusing having two questions in one post

    what windows version are you running

    anything installed or updated before this happened

    do you have the recovery CDs ?

    - try safemode
    as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
    safemode - see if that works

    you have to keep tapping when the PC starts - its easy to miss

    take the battery out and remove the power adapter
    Now - hold the power switch ON for at least 60seconds

    you could try a different operating system and see if that works running from a CD - may also help you get any data off
    BUT you will need another PC , with a CD writer and spare blank CD
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    UBUNTU Stand Alone CD

    NOTE : version Ubuntu 12.04

    It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
    This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

    If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
    goto http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download the ISO http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

    You can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick
    http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

    full details are here (Note this is for version 9 - so the start up options are slightly different )
    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

    click on the image "download ubuntu"
    Select a location
    then begin download
    Save the file onto your PC – remember where you saved it – so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

    You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
    The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
    If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/ - Choose the option Write image file to disc
    OR
    you can use this stand alone ISO Burner to burn the ubuntu onto CD ftp://terabyteunlimited.com/burncdcc.zip

    When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see a screen - with Language on the left panel and two option images labelled

    == > Try ubuntu
    == > Install ubuntu

    You can try Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer, directly from this CD

    Use "Try ubunto" ONLY this option this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install onto the PC - you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive.., so repeat only use option 1

    Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop
    This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working

    NOTE: if you only see a black screen - then this is a known issue, and can be resolved by using the following:-

    When you say it doesn't go past the windows logo, does that mean it just turns off your computer or something? what does it say on the screen? what error code? (EX: 0x00007b)
