sounds like a software problem to me.
Try to boot into safe mode then goto run and type msconfig
then goto tab startup items and start unchecking everything. i think there is also a services tab and you can try to uncheck most or all of these. ( i think there is a tab to hide windows services or something)
Try to reboot and see what happens.
if same results try to uncheck more stuff in services and remove more startup programs.
if it works slowly go throuh and re check services you think you need and start up programs.
I have seen this before on a laptop and this was how it was fixed.
