I have seen several people with the same question, but all just a little different than my issue.

I have a Dell Latitude D620. It appears to boot fine, but then stops short of letting you log in. The computer just freezes at the Blue login screen (with no login option). I have tried to boot in safe mode, but it gets as far as the login screen and stops as well.

A few months back there was a virus problem. I wiped the drive and reinstalled windows and it seemed to be working fine. Today it just stopped. The last time we got a virus, it was rather apparant, this time I don't know if that's the issue.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I just had a computer that had a similar problem except it booted to the windows logo and sat there with the bar moving and never stopping. I ended up replacing the hard drive. Installing the sata drive in an enclosure i was able to find that the drive had corrupted sectors. A second scan of the drive found even more bad sectors. The drive was going bad quickly. A low level format did not help the drive.

Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts, or if I'm stuck?
