    Hey people having a bit of trouble here not sure if its windows or hardware problem yet.

    I recently did an upgrade and did a fresh install of windows.

    After installing windows I continued to update windows and install software on my pc.

    After 2 days of running fine every time it starts stuffing up. It loads up bios fine and gets to windows loading and jstu went its about to get into windows crash back to bios then again and again. Duing this the screen to choose safe mode comes up, if i goto safe mode it works but normal boot wont work? any ideas?

    Welcome,

    Have you tried this

    Re start your PC and immediately on startup start tapping F8 about every second before the window screens and you should see a black screen with white writing....use your arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter

    If your Windows is hanging, during the progress bar part, boot into to safe mode and read the text output. See if a device/driver is failing to load.
