It is relatively new but in the last couple of days the machine has failed to boot properly.
It reaches the screen where usernames and pictures should be presented for logging in. In this case the blue screen (not a BSOD) Appears but without any usernames or picture to select from. [Ctrl alt del] x2 does not bring up the traditional log in or the task manager.
Safe-mode produces the same result but at lower resolution.
Is there a way to get around this rather than carrying out a reinstall from the restore disk?
