comp keeps locking up

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
So whenever I boot into windows in normal mode my computer freezes. Mouse starts to move slow and eventually it locks up...takes anywhere from 5 seconds to 2 minutes. It did it about 6 months ago, but for some reason it stopped doing it. I tried new memory at that point and it worked fine, I've ran memtest as well. It boots up and runs fine in safe mode without any crashes.

It's not overclocked anymore as well either. I haven't updated anything on it lately either.

Any ideas?

Could always try a reformat, unless you absolutely cant.


Might be a Windows problems.

Swapped hdd's during the last episode with all of the problems, didn't fix it...even with a new hdd and a fresh install, so I'm thinking that's not likely the problem as it's the same scenario as before.

This would periodically happen over the past 6 months, but a quick hit of the reset button and it fixed it.

Any other thoughts?
