    That's just Microsoft's way of letting you know your copy is genuine and permanently activated.

    (I know - I'm a bastard)

    Can you get to the desktop? If yes dig into event viewer and look for errors in Windows logs

    Go to event viewer and look for errors that indicate a system hangup. Also go to Task manager > Startup > Disable everything. Maybe your laptop hdd has disk error, also maybe corruption in system files. Also could be just a bad installation. Try a safe boot.

    First look into Event viewer for clues.

    More information required.
