I have been trying to pinpoint this problem for a little shy of a week now. I have a custom built desktop which was running windows 7 Ultimate when it started to have troubles shutting down and booting up. It would fail to shut down and the windows start up would either get stuck for awhile(on the screen that is showing the logo) or it would not start up at all. Hoping that it would solve the problem I reinstalled windows and am now running windows 7 Professional but the problem is still not fixed, It still gets stuck on the start up
Just wondering if anyone could help me find the cause of this problem as it is very frustrating. My computer specs are: EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI FTW ATX Intel Motherboard, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor, EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ Graphics card, Rosewill RX630-S-B 630W PFC.
Any help would be great. To add, it will also not start in safe mode and the cd/dvd drive does not always read discs, this leads me to believe it is a motherboard problem.
