Good Eve all, and to the American's a Happy 4th July. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows 7 and it does not get past the Windows load screen, Dell logo loads then Im faced with the "Windows failed to start...." And I have the option of running startup repair. If I follow the repair, the window black and white bar comes and goes but then it freezes on a fancy blue background and goes no further. If I attempt to load Windows normally, it freezes at the red green blue and yellow windows logo with "Starting Windows" written underneath. I've tried safe mode, that loads to a point (black screen with white type) then it restarts. At a loss here... Any help appreciated. P.S while typing last paragraph, blue screen of death appeared at Windows Startup and the laptop restarted straight away. This has to be a OS issue... Thank you!
