That usually happens just after you've installed a driver that your system will not tolerate. Bear in mind that drivers are also installed with third-party firewalls, antivirus software & CD-burning software, so they can also cause the problem.

Windows Safe Mode doesn't load any third-party drivers (except network driver if called for) which is why it is able to start in that mode, and that's how we know that a third-party driver or some software of the type described above is causing the problem.

If you can remember recently installing a driver or some software of the type described above, uninstall it in Safe Mode then try starting Windows normally.

Hi,

Have you tried "last good configuration" or "system restore"?

I would suggest following steps on the URL mentioned ( follow step 2 under Method 2"): http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/1...

As you are able to boot to the desktop in safe mode you may try and configure the computer to clean boot state and check if any of the third party application or services are conflicting when booting in normal mode. To configure the computer in clean boot state, follow the link given below.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You can even try restoring system back to factory settings and then check the performance of the system. Ensure backing up your data before reinstalling Operating system or PC restore.
