Hmm. I'm not sure if this will work, but let's try it anyway:
- Open msconfig
- Switch to the Startup tab
- Look for anything that could be the culprit
- When you find a possible culprit, disable it (this temporarily deletes its subkey out of the Registry)
- Click OK and then reboot
- If it turns out that this was the culprit, then go back into msconfig and re-enable it.
- Hover over the location to find out exactly where it's located in the Registry
- Go directly to that key in the Registry (leave msconfig open in the background)
- In the right-hand pane of that key, look what might be the offending subkey
- When you think you've found it, Alt+Tab back to msconfig
- Disable the the culprit again as before and click Apply
- Alt+Tab back to Regedit and press F5 to refresh it
- You'll see one of the subkeys in the right-hand pane disappear
- Now, re-enable it in msconfig and click Apply
- Press F5 again in Regedit
- Delete the subkey that reappears (or repeat the above steps to make sure you're deleting the right one)
- Close Regedit and msconfig
If this works, then I would recommend getting the chipset driver and management interface driver directly from Intel's site.
