Vista crashes on startup

  nomis5 10:01 24 Jul 2008

I'm running vista home premium, factory installed, which worked fine but recently it has begun to crash on startup. I get the welcome screen but instead of moving on to desktop everything goes black. I can usually get it back by hitting control/alt/delete and playing around with start task manager but why this works I don't know. Any suggestions gratefully received.

You could try a sysyem restore(by tapping f8 at start up)to a date before it started happening and see if that sorts it.
