I have a Gigabyte GA z77x 3dh
I5 2550k
2X4GB RAM
GeForce GTX 550 Ti
3 Internal Drives all hooked up to sata ports 6gb/sec
1. WDC WD10EZEX 1 TB SATA
2. Sandisk SDSSDX120GG25 SCSI
3. Sony HL-DT-ST DVDRAM

Antect Water cooling

SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Music
Windows XP pro. 64bit

I am getting the occasional lock on boot. This occurs just after the Windows logo appears, and the logo will cease animation and I am forced to reset or power down.

I re-installed Windows and did 5 reboots after each major piece that I installed.

1. Instal Windows
A. Reboot 5 times
2. Install each driver individually off of the Gigabyte CD
A, Reboot 5 times

etc.

No problems until I installed the Canon IP5000 USB using the Windows located drivers. This was the first time it froze, I then restored and unplugged the printer; however it is still locking up now. I ran a memtest, no problems

Ideas?
