i have a dell vostro 1500 running windows vista and it suddenly began to lock up when booting into windows. it displays the windows logo and then about 7-10 seconds later everything stops and the display freezes w/ the progressing green bar at the bottom. no hard drive activity at that point. i've tried a brand new hard drive and attempting to installing windows 7 on the new (blank) hard drive. the same thing happens but it is a few seconds after the new windows logo comes on screen. again, all activity stops and the screen freezes. any ideas?
