Compaq Presario c500 - Not booting into Windows Vista Desktop

\015 When turning on my laptop it displays windows loading bar but as soon as it goes to post into windows desktop, the screen stays black and nothing appears. The HDD light doesnt come back on when posting into windows either but you can see activity beforehand. At first I thought it was a display adapters issue and tried to load into safe mode but it just hangs whilst loading drivers and I'm left with "Please wait........" - Any advice would be welcome in order to fix this.\015\012Thankyou.\015
