Nothing happens, just doesn't move on from the Windows loading screen
What happens when you try and start in normal mode? Do you get any error messages?

Thanks usasma. Have saved my data. I would like to try and be able to get everything up and running without formatting and reinstalling, but I was worried that I might have to go down that route. Are there no other possible options?
I'd suggest going into Safe Mode and saving your data. Then bite the bullet and do a format and reinstallation of Windows. This'll tell you if it's Windows or your hardware (if it's Windows, everything will be fine, if it's your hardware we'll have to figger out what's wrong).
There are other ways to do this (checking the hardware first), but it'll take a while and will require a lot of downloading and trying of programs.

I can't yet run MemTest86 because it says it needs to be run from a floppy and I don't have any - is there an alternative memory test?

The %winddir% is your C:\Windows directory. The quote is from this page: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...w.mspx?mfr=true
Enable Boot Logging
Starts while logging all the drivers and services that were loaded (or not loaded) by the system to a file. This file is called ntbtlog.txt and it is located in the %windir% directory. Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt add to the boot log a list of all the drivers and services that are loaded. The boot log is useful in determining the exact cause of system startup problems.
