Laptop Asus V6000 have not display after Windows logo

Problem: There is no picture after Windows splash screen

Safe mode works ok. Deinstalling video driver did not help. On web forums, people mention that it might be problem with power unit.

So, I removed battery from the laptop (shut down Windows and unplug it first! ), and re-inserted it back - and it worked ok afterwards. I also done online spyware-antivirus scan in safe mode before removal.
