    I'm having this problem and it's seriously annoying. Every so-often when I boot up, the computer will freeze at the Vista loading screen where you see the loading bar on a black background. It seems to happen at random, sometimes the computer will boot up and load vista just fine but sometimes it will just freeze up when that loading bar is displayed. It happens at the same point each time.

    I have no idea what could be causing this, it seems to happen at random so i can't really troubleshoot it. I have attached my system information to this post, if anybody knows what could be causing this please tell me. Could it be a hardware failure?

    Thanks for your help.
    Here are my system specs:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
    Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit
    2 x Seagate 320GB SATA HDDs (Intel Raid 0)
    EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS Factory Superclocked PCIe
    OCZ 700w GameXStream Power Supply
    Gigabyte P35-DQ6 Intel P35 Motherboard
    OCZ Platinum 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
    Megavision MV220 22in 5ms DVI LCD Monitor
    Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000

    First of all look at what loads with OS to see what is in startup. Then check out Antivirus to see if it is doing bootup scans which are meaningless. Anything else scheduling a bootup scan such as antispyware?
    Then check bios for dumb bootups like floppy drive check when you have none, that can be a killer time waster as it searches for one....
