On boot up, while showing the pulsing Windows 7 logo, my computer stops.  Screen goes black then says "No signal", case fans stop, HD light shows no activity, ctrl+alt+del does nothing, reset button does nothing.  Starts fine on Safe Mode.  No recent hardware or software changes.  OS - Windows 7 Ultimate.  Any thoughts?

Sounds like a driver or system setting in Normal mode is corrupt.


I assume you're describing a complete system shutdown.


I would check your Update history to see if you have any recent Windows Updates that may coincide with this issue. Perhaps a failed update?




First try going into msconfig and deselecting all Startup items (Not Services). Then try booting into Normal mode.



Worst case at this point would be a system restore.

I agree with Netghost on this one. Deselecting nonessential start up programs/applications could possible troubleshoot this issue. I would recommend deactivating automatic updates unless you give permission or know that it comes from a valid source.
