    Hi again experts,

    I have this six year old computer running on Vista.
    I start computer and when it starts, it shows bios etc with a blank bar underneath it.
    The blank bar fills up halfway and stalls. Computer won't start up. I push computer button to restart and then it works,
    I recently removed a lot of old programs.
    I tried defragment option after I got it started again. It did not solve problem.
    What is causing computer to stall on startup?
