Windows 7 64bit Ultimate Start-Up Freeze

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow OCN members,
I have somewhat of an issue with by Windows 7. The computer will start without any issues, but Windows 7 will freeze right upon the start-up screen (when the windows logo pop-up and windows is starting up). I tried reconfiguring windows to an ulterior date, but to no avail, tried the memory check but no success. I can boot in safe mode, but cannot boot in network safe mode. Is there a way I can pull a log for you guys to see, and spot the problem?

I have no problems formatting the system, but if someone can point me to a solution, it would be much appreciated (I don't feel like reinstalling all my software).

Have you been overclocking anything?

If not, then the freezing when the startup logo appears is usually due to incorrect SATA configuration. Such as setting SATA to AHCI or RAID mode when Windows is configured to access your hard drive in compatible IDE mode etc.

Check the SATA settings!

I tried playing with the options but to no avail. Concerning the issue, my DVD drive is under IDE while my HDD is SATA, could this cause an issue?

Nah it should be fine to be honest. For testing purposes, you could just disconnect the CD-ROM drive and see if that helps, but I doubt it will.

Are you running everything at stock settings?

Sorry for my late reply, had two hectic days at work. But yes, everything is stock, I'll try getting a SATA CD-Drive and testing it out. I somehow managed to get past the screen load last night, but the windows froze not long after because I let it idle for a couple of minutes.

Well that seemed to be the issue all along, for now Windows works like a charm :S I'll have to send one of my RAM bars out for warranty, and with the Canada Post strike, I'll have to run on 4GB for a while frown.gif Thank you for your help, I actually was starting to suspect my HDD, I never thought of checking the RAM.

Good news that you've found out what it was.

You'll usually find that 90% of the time its RAM or Hard Drive lol.

Microsoft should develop a better warning system for this kind of stuff! It would be nice to have like a Check Engine Light for your PC tongue.gif
