Hi never had this before,turned my PC on this evening boot sequence started and frozee at splash screen. restarted a few times and went through the DEL/F8/F10/F12 fixes to get into safe mode/startup ....nothing goes to splash screen and freezes. I have heard of taking the battery out the motherboard and putting back in? Can anybody help, if its relevant running WIN7 64bit Thanks ....sent from my laptop

It's sounding like your Windows installation has become corrupt. My first thought would be a reinstall (that tends to be my default fix for many things - I've got it down to fine art such that it's no longer nearly such a pain) but others may come along with ideas that are less time-consuming.

unplug from mains

press and hold power button for 30 secs

reconnect power and attempt to reboot.
