When I turn on my HP dv7 running ultimate, it gets to the windows login page when when it chimes about half way through and the speakers emit a high pitch buzzing sound and the laptop freezes. The sound isnt an electrical buzz but rather a stutter/repeated sound loop.

 

When I started with the last known good configuration this did not happen but after logging in I didnt get past a black screen (mouse visible and working)

 

Any thoughts, ideas or solutions would be appreciated

Do you have the installation disk and can you run the startup repair utility from that? How old is the system and what is your security program?

Repair disk found a problem but did not fix it. The laptop was bought in 2010, and it was running malwarebytes and avast but ive deleted those.

I can boot to safe mode but booting to safe mode with networking results in a BSOD. 

I've messed around disabling drivers but thats hasnt worked, atleast so far

could the results I get when booting into SMWN mean a bad network card?

You should be able to boot to the desktop without being connected to the Internet. I would keep at least minimal security current on the system. Stuff happens!

Have you tried disabling the audio card and the speakers?

Sorry, but very sounds alike like it's water there. :(

 

Technically.
