    The black screen is normal, windows is loading. Now if i were you, i will check each of every component. Try to remove or unplug one at the time and start your computer. Remove one by one your memory also if you have more then one stick.

    You sure the black screen is normal? Never got that before. Anyway I haven't tried your suggestions yet but I did run Windows update and it found some updates just released installed those rebooted and I didn't get a boot loop. But if I do I'l report back.

    Yes the black screen is normal. many have that, the FASTER do not(they have a blink, but slower does, you might also check all the (DUH) you have installed. I found one Client (it seems to get slower every day)
    she installed a (auto on reboot, reg clean then defrag. yep it really was slower... many (100% make your system faster is really a SLOWER than hell to BOOT.

    Step one: Remove any A/V program
    Step two: Update your system to the most recent updates on WU
    Step three: Profit

    I've had an issue like this, the computer will just sit there for ages, with no visible progress before it eventually manages to get to the login screen. The only solution I have ever found was to do a refresh when it started happening - or just not turning my computer off any more. Uptime FTW.
