Steps taken thus far to assess problem.
1) Normal boot, dies during windows loading screen (with the progress bar)
2) Safe mode with networking boot, dies while loading (scrolling of files)
3) Booted with a Hiren's boot disk. Navigated through menus to the testing tool of my choice (the troubleshooter 9.0) and then it dies.
It seemed to die in all three of these attempts after about the same amount of time. Need some advice please.
Thanks in advance
