Check to see if you have a USB key inserted that is preventing Windows from starting. If not, boot from a bootable CD and see if the hard drive is available. You may have a bad hard drive.

A missing drive designated as C:\ is the usual cause.

The problem is caused by iomega software...you might have an iomega hardware like external drive etc..

Reinstall or uninstall the iomega software.

Can also try clean boot to find out the unwanted program running at startup.

Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.
