Windows Starting Problem - Hangs 5-10 Min black screen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
today I have been having this problem when booting up. It loads windows screen which takes 5-10 min and then a black screen with only mouse pointer for abouter 5-10 min. I tried formatting, also booting from system restore disc and windows install cd, each time it loads to the black screen with a 5-10 min hang and then commencing with the windows format etc.

-I cleared Cmos
-formatted
-removed and reconnected hardware/ram


-main boot drive is an ssd/as below in system specs

-using legit windows 7 64 bit

Does it still do it if you have your hard drive disconnected? I've seen bad hard drives cause the system to hang a long time even if they are not the primary boot drive. Sometimes it happens before it POSTs but I'd imagine it could happen booting to Windows as well.

Also is your SSD on the latest firmware? BIOS up to date?

thanks it appears to be my storage drive, do i have to just wipe it clean as a format or is there something else i can do?

my two drives in a RAID were going the same, except I kept getting hung at the Windows logo.

Anyway, move whatever files you need to an external, format the drive, and then move them back. You shouldn't have any worries after that. You could also do a disk check.
