Windows Start Problem

I have a Lenovo Desktop running Windows 7.  All of a sudden my screen froze, and some of the desktop icons went blurry.  The mouse moved, but couldn't select anything.  The keyboard was non-responsive.  I rebooted with the Power button, and tried running System Repair, which couldn't fix the problem.  When I boot up I get the colorful Windows logo, which "breathes" as though it's starting up nicely, but then hangs up at that point.  What can I do to get past this hangup?  

Thanks,

Phil

Try a system restore to an earlier time and see if the problem goes away (although it seems that it could be a hardware problem).  Also, worth trying, to see if the problem goes away in safe mode.  Please report back.

I would remove the HD and slave it off of another computer and copy your data off so that it is safe.

After that I would do a factory install or reinstall from scratch so that you have a clean install then copy your data back.

The fact that Winodws starts to load means that your hardware should be ok and that it is just an OS issue.

Rather than spend hours or days trying to repair or do recovery reinstalls it will most likely be more time effective to just rebuild the machine.

Try booting in Safe Mode. I would take a look at my Graphics Card Drivers and also run a check disk on the primary hard drive.
