If you tell us the exact message on the Blue Screen we might be able to help.

In the meantime, boot into safe mode (start tapping F8 when the bios is posting and before Windows begins to start), and choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

Let us know.

THANK YOU. There is no message on the blue screen, just plain blue, with hour glass, but never changes.

Ok.

What happens when you try to get into safe mode?
(Tap F8 Repeatedly as soon as you turn the computer on)
