Default Window 7 hanging with glowing logo on boot

Hey guys, I could use a little help troubleshooting a strange issue I have happening.

I alt tabbed out of diablo 2 and got nothing but a black screen, now when I rebooted my windows just hangs at starting windows with the pulsating logo (note it continues to pulsate but never boots)

Ive tried windows startup recovery which did nothing and took out my sound card since creative drivers are known to cause this. I could use some help finding what may be the problem.

Nostalgia seems to have come with a price >_<

Solve it via obliterating drivers.

unrelated to your problem, but might improve the d2 experience.

Try to find a wraper mod for diablo 2. It will improve video performance and the graphics a bit.

I actually had the same problem can you help me out? My pc runs fine but when I add a PCI card (tv card reader) then the windows boot logo just stays there .

Is it because it doesnt support windows 7 or x64 os? Or do i need to install the drivers first then put the card in?

Thanks :)
