OK I need you to go into Msconfig again and do the following.

Click the Services tab.
Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
Click Disable All, and then click OK.

This needs to be done in addition to stopping startup items and the list may reveal the culprit as a service.

Then try to boot ya? It was already disabled from before but I redid it.

I can double check it but I didn't see anything that wasn't normally there. The last time I had it on it was on for almost a day before I finally powered it down because it wasn't going to boot and the activity on the hard drives finally ceased.

What I mean is do you get kind of post screen at all? If not that is not a Windows issue but monitor, motherboard, cpu or some other hardware causing it.
