Does it hang at this screen, or are you eventually able to get into Windows?

If so, what do you have to do to get into Windows?

 

If unable to get into Windows, try these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

If able to get into Windows, let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please run this report collecting tool (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Does it say what it's preparing FOR?  I have two Dell Inspiron desktops running Windows 7 Pro and a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows 10 Home, and I haven't seen this message.  Would it be preparing to install Windows 10 perhaps?  If so, that's a 2-4 GB download which can take some time, depending on your Internet connection speed.  We really need more information here if you want a better answer.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

 I'd get hold of a Linux disc or flash drive, boot from it, and save any data you don't want to lose.  Then I'd restore to factory settings and reinstall your application software.  Of course if you have a current full system backup, you could just restore from that.

 

 Good luck.
