    W7 Hangs at Splash screen

    I hope someone has an answer to this.
    I have used the "no reformat repair install" It didn't work for me. W7 hangs at the pulsating windows splash screen. It is a new install with SP1, dual booting with XPP.
    If I choose to go to XP at the first boot menu, I can go there and it works just fine. ( so I think it is not a hardware problem)
    If I choose the default W7 ( and it did work for the first week) , Now I can't get past the splash screen. If left for some time an error message appears telling there is a hardware problem. The problem started after the computer was left running over night and it shut down (sleep / hibernated?) on its own .
    Your help is much appreciated.

    I would first try a sfc /scannow from a cmd prompt (you should be able to get to a command prompt from the installation disk repair console)

    Then you might try a Win 7 Repair Install.
