Are you able to get in to Windows if you start in safe mode? Press F8 before the 'loading' screen comes up when you turn on your PC and try that. You can then look at system restore or look through the event log to work out what's happening. Coincidentally my PC does this with certain USB devices attached (i.e. printer, joystick - things that need a bit of power). So you could also try unplugging all but keyboard and mouse and see if that helps. YMMV! –  Beeblebrox Dec 11 '12 at 22:11
    
Thanks! Got there by F8. It displayed that there was smth wrong with attaching usb devices to it. I connected phone to laptop via usb and the loptop battery died and I was unable to load Windows. What it might be? Why so strange behavior? –  RCola Dec 11 '12 at 22:23
