Who is the manufacturer of your hard drive? In the case of the very few manufacturer's that don't offer a hard drive test, I'd suggest the Hitachi Drive Fitness test (free here: http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm#DFT
) or the Seagate SeaTools (available for free here: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
If it starts in Safe Mode, but not in normal mode, then it's something that's loaded in normal mode (but not in Safe Mode) that's likely to be the issue. In general, this means it's most likely a software problem - although hardware problems can cause this under certain circumstances (for example, a bad NIC may not affect anything in Safe Mode because it's drivers aren't loaded - but loading the drivers in normal mode may cause issues)
