I have a three pc's in my workshop currently. All three of them start to load windows then stop at the stage where it switches to GUI mode. The monitor does not go to sleep so it is still getting signal from the graphics card.
When this happens the hard disk stops attempting to load anything. I have come across the vista black screen of death many times before but unlike that in this one you do not even get a mouse cursor.
I can access them in safe mode.
Tasks I have performed already are as follows:
Complete malware and virus scans on the disks using combofix and malwarebytes antimalware.
Hard disk full diagnostics.
Removed graphics drivers.
The computers are of the following spec:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz
Windows XP Pro SP3
Seagate 500GB Sata HDD
ATI radeon X1300
Intel Duel core 3.2GHz
Windows VISTA SP2
2 x Seagate 250GB in a raid 0
Intergrated ATI mobility graphics card.
Windows Vista SP1
Any help would be greatly apprecited since I am stumped on this one
