Windows hangs at desktop on startup.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Can't click on anything. Can't ctrl+alt+dlt. Whenever I try to bring the Taskbar up or click on the shortcut it just gives the circle wait thing.

It boots into Safe Mode fine, and I ran the memory diagnostic, everything is fine there.

Check Disk is next.

What else could it be?

Have you defraged your driver recently? Or ran a program like ccleaner to clean your drive?

No, just KB/mouse/LAN/toslink plugged in the MB.

I haven't defragged anything, this is a fresh 6 hour Windows install. No CCCleaner ran.

Not OC'ed either. Everything is bone stock.

Also, crucial M4 firmware up to date? http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx

And bios?

Also, go to system config and check to see what programs and services are bing loaded at boot.

I had an issue similar to yours when I first installed window. It worked it's way out with the sata and firmware updates.

Wait, so Safe mode was fine? Any additional programs installed after windows?

edit- also, is this your rig in your signature, or another one? and how long exactly does it take to start up that we're talking here.
