Windows Boot Screen Loading..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey guys, my friend has a problem with his computer, and all i can think of right now is a corrupt OS.. but hes been using this computer for about a year now, so i cant say...

but this is what he described.

When his computer goes to the windows boot screen, the bar will just keep moving back and forth (thus loading..) and sometimes gets 'stuck' , and never gets to be functional. But, he said that when he restarts until it does work, it takes 2 seconds to load up everything and hes good to go.

But knowing its an annoyance to him, i wnana help him get this fixed. Any help would be appriciated.

Sounds Like either a Driver or HDD issue. When in Windows i would get him to update All his main Drivers including.

.G-card drivers
.Chipset drivers
.Sound drivers

However I would also check to see if his HDD is failing and check its SMART status using Speedfan :http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
