Had a one year old DELL PC stop booting, got stuck at Starting Windows with ONE RED DOT of the Windows logo being visible - that's all.
I have tried:
1. Safe Mode (every type)
2. Startup Repair
3. Updating the BIOS to the newest version (using USB key boot in DOS)
4. Tried OS booting from internal CD AND external CD.. both get stuck at the same Starting Windows
5. Even reformatted the HD (on another PC)
What on earth could be causing this? I've been doing this kinda work for a very long time and am actually at my vits end right now... HELP!
