Angry Unable to boot into Windows

I recently built a computer for a co-worker of my girlfriend and when I get Windows installed and do a restart the computer boots as though it will go into Windows and just sit at the back screen with no HDD activity. I have tried this with both Windows Vista and Windows 7
I am not total sure what it could be. Any Ideas?


Computer Specs:

Intel Pentium® Dual-Core Processor E5300
Kingston 2GB DDR2 PC800
Western Digital 500GB HDD SATA
Zotac G31MAT-B-E LGA 775 G31
LG DVD Burner


To Moderators: If this is wrong spot sorry was not sure what to post it under.

Press F8 and try with boot logging enabled. And see which driver is crashing Windows.

I'd just try doing a startup repair from your Windows dvd.
