Windows 7: Pc won't boot up passed the windows logo on windows 7 x64 pro

Pc won't boot up passed the windows logo on windows 7 x64 pro

I first noticed my video card running extremely hot, it was spiking around 102c. It would normally run about 72c on a decent load. When it would stay around 92-99 c, my pc would go black and the screen would flash at the top right corner a "vga" then flash "dvi" and then it would shut down. I installed new fans and it would still run about 89-90 c. I knew i would have to get a new video card but was holding out till payday. Well the last time it shut off,it would get to the windows logo and then shut off. It will start on safe mode but nothing else. Would a new graphics card fix my issue? Sorry for my jumbled post and thanks in advance for reading.

Assuming you have tried the obvious, like blowing the dust bunnies out of your nooks and crannies (don't forget the power supply also gathers dust), do you have an old video card you could swap out with? The logon screen is hardly graphics intensive so it doesn't seem like it has time to overheat before you even get logged in.

Cannot Boot - Hang on Windows Logo
Thanks for reading. My laptop has mysteriously stopped booting as of last Saturday. I suspect it may be because I had stopped a windows update (I cancelled it while it was running and then it hung during shutdown). When it hung during shutdown, I had to hard-power it off to turn the machine off....
