Easiest way is to copy the event logs off, and look at them on another system.  they should be in
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\*.evt
on the working system, rt click on the "Event Viewer" and open log file.

If PE doesn't allow you to copy the files, try UBCD4Win, has a good gui, and might even allow you to view the logs right there.
