    PC loops at "Starting Windows" screen
    « on: December 15, 2010, 10:10:25 AM »
    Last night I was trying to install an iogear bluetooth driver from their site. When it finished all of my desktop icons but about 3 or 4 were gone and everything in my start menu was gone too. I restarted it but now it seems to be "stuck in a loop" for lack of a better term. It gets to the "Starting Windows" screen and then loops back to it. When I start it I get an option screen to start normally or repair using a disc. It loops when I start normally and when I put the disc in it tries to reinstall the whole system. I can hear the hard drive spinning down like its going to sleep or something when it loops. Anybody know what might be the cause of this?

      By the way, safe mode doesn't work either. It just does the same thing.

      Try doing a system restore to a point before the driver install...
      Then double-check the manuf. site to ensure you are working with the proper drivers...
