I just installed a new hard drive and downloaded Vista Business after which I couldn't access the internet. With the able assistance of a couple of the members of this community, I succeeded in that effort. I then proceeded to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro which was the condition before I got the new hard drive. Everything went well and I downloaded Microsoft Essentials to protect the computer after which I shut down and left the unit. Prior to shutting down, I went to access Bleeping Computer and got as far as the headings and then there was a pop-up in the upper left hand corner of the website. It was all red and made reference as follows: 100% of airlines in the fortune 500 Rely on Red Hat and then there was an option to "Learn More" which I didn't go into. I went to another computer and was able to access Bleeping Computer and I posted the information about that Red Hat message. Later in the day, I went back to my own computer and decided to clean up a little and without turning anything back on, I disconnected everything dusted and cleaned all of my equipment and put everything back and turned the computer on and I was greeted by a screen alluding to a hardware change and  to choose  "Repair your Computer" or if there was only a power interruption to "start windows normally" I chose the latter and it shows the Dell Logo and gets to "windows starting up" and it just stays there. I shut down manually (holding the button in) and started up again and got that same screen about the hardware and I chose "repair your computer" and I clicked on it and I get a bar that says Windows is getting files and it just stays there and that is where I am and I'm wondering if that Red Hat thing caused a problem

PROBLEM SOLVED !   In the back of my mind, I'm thinking I had something like this before and it had to do with a new Keyboard. So I put my old keyboard back in and bingo, no problem. Thank You all
