My Solution!!

Now, I understand this may not be the solution that fixes all similar issues but I was experiencing an issue not dis-similar to the one outlined above/below (not quite sure ) with my PC; it turned out that my processor fan was not connected to my motherboard at all (no, I didn't even think to look in there! ). My understanding of the issue is that because the system recognised there was an issue it would automatically freeze to prevent the processor from doing any work and therefore put it (processor) at risk, hence the hang on the Windows Splash page. With regards to the system starting up normally on occasion, this can be explained by the user giving the PC a break, that is, getting frustrated to the point where you don't try rebooting for a while. Whilst the frustration sets in, the the system gets time to cool down and therefore starts because it hasn't really done any risky processing since you stopped trying.

Bottom line - check your processor fan and all cables associated with it. The solution may be as simple as that!
