Something wrong with windows 7

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello
For the past 4 days I've been having very bad problems with my pc. The problem is that it boots up into windows and everything loads and everything is good. But once I click on something, anything whether it be a shortcut or the start menu button, it will instantly freeze and I cannot click on anything. It wont even do anything when I press ctrl alt del and it jut stays frozen forever.

Just before I was trying to get it to run but this time I tried to see how long it stayed frozen for and after about five minutes of waiting it comes up with a popup saying "Microsoft windows has stopped responding" and after I had that popup I waited another ten minutes and the whole screen goes completely black. But for some reason the mouse works perfectly fine. And after another ten minutes of waiting, the screen is still black. I tried clearing the cmos but that made no difference.

What has me so concerned is that my computer didnt over the past few days get gradually slower an slower to the point of it being this slow, but it just went instantly slow straight away. The other day I just turned it on and it was like this.
I'm a bit worried that I would have picked up a virus but I really have no clue.

After another ten minutes of watching my computer melt down it has popped up with " failure to display security and shut down options".

Please help people, I have absolutely no clue what I can do and how to fix this problem and I really want to avoid re-installing windows.

My specs are:
i7 8320
Asus x79 rampage formula
Asus 6950
2x4gb corsair vengeance
Ocz 700w psu
1tb Seagate hdd

edit: It doesn't act up like this when I boot it up from safe mode

I think you may have answered your own question. If it works in safe mode, it means driver issue?

Did you try re-installing all the drivers?

Yeah I'm giving that a try now, I'm also giving it a scan with avg cleanup hoping that may help a little bit as well

In avg cleanup it has discovered a problem and it is saying to update the driver "Security processor loader driver"... what is this for and how do I update it?

So i did some searching and another guy had the exact same problem as i did and with a list of the exact same symptoms as i had. It turns out it has to do with the graphics driver, so i run driver-sweeper in safe mode and re-installed catalyst 12.8 and everything is working fantastic again. I don't understand how this kind of problem had to do with a graphics driver but whatever its fixed now.

Sorry this thread wasn't really necessary, i always end up making a thread before i have tried every possible solution i have for fixing a problem that i have lol

Hopefully it will help someone in future. Maybe post the link with the exact details for future reference or post a copy of the details here.

My audio drivers , not long ago, out of the blue made my PC to BSOD randomly. I didn't know it was that, but the error code was driver related. First re-did GPU drivers, still did it. Then audio. Fixed it right up. Guess it just happens...

I'm sorry but I'm going to have to bump this thread.
This problem is still continuing and I'm still currently trying to fix it by installing and uninstaling drivers. This time it starts freezing even when there are no drivers installed (graphics & sound). When I was looking through the bios to see if there was something that could be causing the problems but only found that it was booting from some kind of Sony media device, then to the hdd. I don't even know what the Sony media device is because there is only an hdd and a blu Ray drive installed into my motherboard, anyway when I changed it so it booted from the hdd the problems still continue. I actually now officially have no idea what I can do now. Can somebody please give me some tips or tell me what the possible causes of these problems are? I would really love to avoid reinstalling windows since I have no second hdd and changing over from my gigabyte to my asus mobo was a real b**ch

Thanks
