I have two computers each running Win 2000pro. One of the computers died about two weeks ago and the other died two days ago 09/10/05. When you boot up the computer everything looks normal. I get the login screen as normal and enter my login information. After entering the password the computer plays the normal logon music and then goes to blue screen and stops (no error codes are visible). It never brings up anything else. I can Ctrl Alt Del & go back to the logoff/task manager screen. I can log off & login as someone else with the same problem. When the first computer died I thought it could be a bad hard drive but I don’t buy it when 2 weeks later another computer does the same thing. I have recent Windows updates one each machine and run Norton AntiVirus every day.

I still suspect a malware infestation that has interrupted the winlogon process. Could also be a driver issue, but the coincidence is disturbing.

Try booting into safe move first to eliminate the driver issue.

Can you enter there?
