Windows 7 safe mode and normal start.
Hey guys. This is Chandan. I was using Win 7 for a while. All of a sudden it got sluggish and started to hang while gaming.
I thought that it was a windows error and just formatted the system.
Even after formatting the system the performance was a little sluggish and again the system started hanging.(This time even while doing other stuff for ex. watching a vid)
I noticed that the system was heating a little so I cleaned the cabinet and removed all dust.
But still the performance is quite sluggish and when I play games the pc hangs in the middle.
BTW... I cannot start windows 7 normally.. It just hangs after the windows logo.
I have to start it in safe mode and then restart only after which windows loads properly.
What might be the problem?
I have a decent configuration and ample amount of ventilation.
