repeated computer freezes in FSX game

i am running windows 7 64bit Ultimate, i am currently having the same problem i use my computer for Flight Simualtor online gaming and last night my FSX game froze which i was not to concerned about but when i started to have repeated freezes in game i decided to shutdown and restart computer. i then had the problem you were having i would get to the windows startup with the "4 Colours" and my computer would not load any further,

i then went to bed due to frustration and woke up next morning to find that my computer worked perfectly.
this worked for about 4hrs when i recieved exact problem again and have spent the last 3 hrs trying to get my computer to work!!!

Finally i am back online but it did it itself with normal startup.

a am just wanting do know r u still suffering problem and/or did u find a solution and what was your solution or does anyone have a solution.
all help would be greatly appreciated

Hello Wokka21 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you reviewed the steps in the other thread that were suggested?

Windows 7 freezes turn into inability to boot into anything

As mentioned there can you post your system specs?
This could be a hardware issue, with out your system specs it will be difficult for us to recommend the correct tests.
System Info - See Your System Specs
Or you can use: Speccy Free System information Utility

Follow this procedure and post the requested information, even if there are no dump files, the info generated can help us to find the cause.

Start with a HDD test, best to get the app from your HDD manufacturer.
Then memtest86+, run first with all your RAM cards installed, run for a full 7 passes, best to run overnight as it may take a while.

i had installed a new USB headset which came with software after i had installed software my computer went downhill from there.

my solution was to uninstall the USB headset as it was the most recent software installation, i then conducted System restore and took my computer back to previous setting's before the problems started and i have had no more system crashes,freezes or inability to boot for 3 days hope this helps

have replaced USB headset with 3.5mm jack heaset been best decision ever

Glad to hear you solved it, congrats.
