Windows 7: Flashing splash screen, won't boot

Flashing splash screen, won't boot

When I get to the splash screen it just blinks. it won't boot. I've tried going into the safe mode by pressing F8 at the previous screen. Iíve tried booting from a start disk. it won't go into the advanced boot options, and booting from a disk made no difference. This has happened before but i was able to get in through safe mode. once i get in i can do a system restore and it will work for a while. How can i get in to my machine?

I have not had the BSOD. I can't get into safemode either, so i can't really follow any of those steps. but, thanks.

If you read the tutorial carefully, if your not able to access safe mode, then there is a another step which doesn't require you even attempting to boot the computer, but rather scan for any malware or rootkits which may have infected the system.
