[Solved: by reformatting :( ]Windows 7 doesn't fully boot/load up

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I've been having this frustrating problem with my PC randomly not booting/loading properly. under Windows 7 x64

Attached is a picture of my desktop fully loaded:


Attached is a picture of my desktop refusing to fully load (windows gadgets not loading, other programs not loading, it's like it got stuck loading at 70%). The mouse will work but it won't let me do anything and the "loading" circle will keep on "loading" indefinitely so I have to press the restart button on my casing:



(I can't ctrl+alt+del, I can't use the keyboards, the mouse will move around but won't function)

I really don't know what's up. It started about a month ago and would pop up randomly. Maybe 30-50% of the time when I turn on my computer I would encounter this and I'd have to reset my computer. After that, it's ok.

Fyi, My OS is installed on a Crucial M4 128gb SSD, my overclock is stable and everything on the surface seems ok. I tried running the Windows repair thing but it doesn't detect any problem.

Hoping someone has encountered the same problem and can share their solutions. Thanks!

Does resource manager show anything weird, like CPU/RAM spikes?

When it's refusing to boot/load, I have no way of knowing because it'll get stuck at that picture I posted (2nd picture) and I can't access the task manager. After a restart, everything loads fine (there doesn't seem to be any CPU/RAM spikes).

I don't know what you have tried yet, but I would start with a complete virusscan, booting with the ssd only in safe mode. Your ssd could also be faulty, might want to check it with some analyzing programs, like HDTune, Atto and HDTach (Maybe there are some better ones, these are just some suggestions).

Thank you for your suggestions. I have tried running my anti-virus and anti-malware and so far, my computer is clean. I've also checked with HDtune and CrystalDisk and my SSD is fine.

HOWEVER, I did check event viewer and found multiple instances of errors:

Event 46, volmgr = Crash dump initialization failed!
Event 45, volmgr = The system could not sucessfully load the crash dump driver.

I would get these errors at start-up and they would just load indefinitely and I would have to restart my computer.

I believe these are the ones causing me not to fully "load/boot" up in windows.

I've tried looking for solutions over the internet but no answers so far. Hopefully someone can help me out biggrin.gif thanks!
