Hi Ejoe -- You won't have to spend anything, we will get it going. Just hang with us. == Does it get to the Windows screen with the logo? Did you install anything new the night before the problem? Was your computer purchased at a store and it already had Windows on it or did you build it? What version of Windows 7 do you have, Home Premium, Professional etc. and 32 or 64 bit? Thanks,

Maybe the nVidia driver updates are causing the issue ?
Try booting in Safe Mode by tapping F8 at startup.
Here's a tutorial with details for this:
