Well the first thing to try is to see if you can get it to boot into Safe Mode you do this by holding down the F8 key after the POST Screen has vanished off the screen. Or to put it another way when you first see the Windows Splash Screen press and hold down the F8 Key until you get to the screen where you are prompted on how you want it to boot.

You can chose to boot by individual driver and see where it stops and then remove that driver in "Safe Mode" to see if that fixes the problem as well.

You should also have a look at the RAM and if you have 2 sticks fitted remove one and see if it boots if not remove the one that is installed and replace it with the other stick if it then works you have a faulty stick of RAM and bin it so you do not have the same problem. If both work but will not work together they have a timing problem and at the very least one needs replacing although I would consider fitting 2 new sticks of the same size and make just to make sure that this doesn't raise its head sometime in the future.
Lets know if that was of any help.

One possible solution

If you can boot into Windows, open up your Contol Panel, open up the System box, click the Advanced tab. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings, and uncheck the Automatically Restart option. Check the Event Viewer for any errors, make note of the error code then go on Microsoft's site to further research the issue.
