Windows 7 boot up hangs at Starting Windows


  • I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 and wasn't having any problems for about a month until my Dell Inspiron 1525 began stopping the boot process at "Starting Windows".  I have attempted multiple options available with F8, ie. Repair Your Computer, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, Last Known Good Configuration, and Debugging Mode, all to no avail.  Safe mode starts loading windows files but never finishes and the computer eventually shuts down.
