Windows 7 64bit
Freezing/Crashing on Start-Up, New Build

Hi guys, I recently built a new pc and I'm having some issues with Windows 7 which seems to freeze on start up. By this I mean at the "Starting Windows" screen the animation will start but will freeze after a couple of seconds. It usually takes me about 3 restarts to then get into windows. I haven't been using Windows Repair tool because the restore deletes all of the programmes that I've put on and the crashing continues to happen despite the changes. I'll list my specs below:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
ASRock Pro3 Gen3 Z68
Intel Core i5 2500k currently @ stock speed
Gigabyte 560Ti OC
OCZ ZS 550w
8GB DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz
Kingston HyperX 120gb SSD (Boot Drive)
Western Digital 1TB Caviar Blue (Overflow Drive)

I don't think the SSD is the problem because when I did the install on the WD HDD I still had the instability and the crashes.

The drivers I have installed are: Realtek LAN drivers, Nvidia 500 series Graphics, Nvidia HD Audio and all of the "Important" Windows 7 updates.

If you need any more info just shout

Thanks in advance for any help guys!!
