Hang on boot

I have a system hang on boot. It will start booting into Windows and then the monitor turns off - black screen. I can get into Safe Mode and wonder if this error logged in the System Event Log is related?

Try the following:

1. Restart the computer and press F8 when Windows start booting. This will bring up the startup options.

2. Select “Enable Boot Logging” option and press enter.

3. Windows prompts for you to select a Windows Installation (even if there is only one windows installation)

This boots windows normally and creates a boot log named ntbtlog.txt and saves it to C:\Windows (%systemroot%) folder which can later be accessed to see if there was a troublesome driver.

2.Navigator to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters in Registry Editor
3.Add a new REG_DWORD "Headless " and set the value to 1
4.Reboot the server.
