I run a dual core AMD with 4GB Ram. System has a Vista score of 4.
It has been running faultlessly for 2 months. Vista Business
On the weekend it started to refuse to boot Vista. PC boots, does all its
checks, then black screen and nothing!!
Booted in safe mode. It runs perfectly! Ran registry checks, antispyware,
virus checks. No problem.
But it still refuses to boot normally.
Any ideas?? I am stumped!
Did you check the event viewer? Did you install something just prior to this happening? Did windows just update? If it will start in safe mode it is most likely one of the above that is causing the problem. Did you try doing a system restore to a time before this problem started?

I had identical problem
I don't know what fixed it, but I updated my video card drivers and ensured that absolutely everything was fully connected and seated inside my case. The problem went away a month ago and has not returned.

I had the same problem
The same thing happened to me the other day and I was stumped for a bit. But then I realized that I had recently installed a TV tuner and Vista was trying to use that as my graphics card instead of my real graphics card. Try and remove any peripherals that you dont need. If you do have a graphics card installed and you have on board video as well, during boot enter your BIOS and turn on board video back down and shut down. Then remove your graphics card and turn it back on. Hope it helps!
