I can boot in safe mode with networking with no issues, but when I try to boot normally, it loads to the point where you click on the user account and reboots. I have to then hold the power button down and power back up. In safe mode, I tried to make changes in MSCONFIG- setting it to boot normally, but the changes will not save.
One other point, if I leave the computer up and running in safe mode, it will shut down after a 20 mins or so. At that point, I have to hold in the power button again and restart in safe mode.
