Windows 7: Windows 7 RC Failed to boot.

Windows 7 RC Failed to boot.

Alright, im loving using the Windows 7 since its fast, easy and overall better however I've installed and then once a program told me to restart after install or wait till later. I waited, then the next time I tried to startup it just crashed at the 'starting windows' bit.

I thought that would be the issue but then after another install about 3 weeks now has passed and after updating the sims 3 I did lots of other things, it didn't tell me to restart or anything then the PC was left logged off and went into standby. I tried to bring it back with the mouse and nothing happened so I restarted and it did the same crash at 'starting windows'.

I hope theres something I can do before I go insane...thanks.
