Have you run HDD and RAM diagnostics? If not, I suggest you run them first (use Memtest86+ for RAM test). Run Memtest86+ at least 2 passes for each of the RAM stick installed. Test each stick individually (remove one while you test the other).

After running the diagnostics (assuming no errors), try a Vista Startup Repair.

I have run the diagnostics twice without any errors( did not try removing one stick) and also the windows start up repair....which was done but all i got after the repair was the windows resuming screen and then the same black screen again.
