also press f8 at boot go get into advanced booting options and click enable boot logging then view the Ntbtlog.txt in the windows root folder to see if any drivers are failing it will usually be the last entry.

if it was one of the drivers would i reinstall the drivers for it in safe mode and then would it run?
