    Hey guys, heres my Specs:

    • ATi Radeon 5970 - 10.8
    • AMD Phenom II 1090T (6 Core, 3.2 Ghz) (It says 3.4 on my sytem info over on the left but thats wrong)
    • ASUS Republic Of Gamers IV Formula
    • 1 TB Hard Disk
    • 4 GB Corsair Dominater
    • Windows 7 32 Bit (I know im loosing 1gb memory)
    None of my hardware is overclocked or underclocked

    I start my pc log in and a on startup to the desktop my mouse frezees and the little blue circle freezes. I tried alt+ctrl+Delete and other keyboard shortcuts but no luck, its not all the time this happens just every few times, i have to resort to force shutting down

    Any help would be really appreciated..

    Thanks

    Ollie

    How long do you wait for it? And does it persist in safe mode?

    i suggest you start up in safe mode
    then remove all drivers you have on you pc
    reinstall drivers again (download new one's)
    maybe 1 or more drivers are not installed correctly

    if that doesn't help remove 1 memory bank to try

    i had this 1 time also only reinstalling windows helped me that time

    My mouse works fine, its a £40+ Steel Series mouse, even if the mouse didn't work, keyboard short-cuts don't work, you could say then it might be your keyboard

    but, the time freezes and the loading blue circle,

    any other ideas?

    Thanks

    I recently did this with my gfx card to update to 1.8
    My RAM and CPU and PSU and Hard Disk dont have any drivers, i dont think there is any?

    and my mother board is the only one left, but it could be that causing the problem?

    Actually I wouldn't dismiss the mouse, I've often seen them cause start up issues for whatever weird reason. My laptop for example won't boot with a mouse plugged in, gotta boot up and then plug it in. Similarly my comp doesn't boot if I leave my blackberry plugged in.

    I've seen weirder, a mouse which would prevent the computer from booting at all. It would cause a complete freeze at start up. It was a long time ago, a standard wired ball mouse (yes, that long ago).

    As for things aside from a mouse, you should never have something plugged in which may be trying to communicate with the PC. For example my PSP with custom firmware has a ton of programs on it which would try to communicate with the PC and so if my PSP is plugged into while the computer is trying to boot it will freeze the PC.

    Sounds like a software issue to me. I would definitively say it's software if it weren't for the occasional 1 in 100 crazy ass things that a computer can do.

    Most likely a buggy program is running at startup.

    First update all drivers


    Goto run in your start menu type in "msconfig" then head over to the start tab and start nuking stuff that you don't need. If that doesn't work start nuking stuff that you do need until nothing is checked. This will probably cause your printer to stop working until you recheck those boxes, particularly if it is HP and depends on that crappy bloatware that they install.

    Actually, the harddrive and CPU both have drivers. Both use generic drivers....but still use drivers none the less.

    Okay...I'll ask the important and obvious question: What did you install around the time when the problem started happening? Any updates, Games, hardware...etc? Let's narrow this down with a logical approach. Have you done a "revert" to before the problem existed?

    First, why not change your specs to match what you really have? Secondly, check to see if your memory timmings are in proper spec!

    Thanks
