Windows 7: Sudden hanging on "Starting Windows"

Sudden hanging on "Starting Windows"

I had to upgrade the BIOS of my board in order the get back Virtualization (for some reason it wasn't showing up with the version I was using, that was a known problem). I did the upgrade after the Win 7 clean install on a new drive. Now I am geting random hangs on the "Starting Windows" screen. I'll have to hit the reset button to reboot. It will then recommend going into Repair mode but will find nothing.

And just a moment ago I got a BSOD. Here are the details:
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: a
BCP1: 0000000000000008
BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF80002B7A50B
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1
That was while using IE. I really don't want to reinstall. I remember in Win XP Pro instructions which would allow the OS to essentially re-scan the hardware and reinstall all the device drivers as though it were a first time install. I'm thinking if that's possible in Win 7 it might be worth doing. Any know if it is?

Hi and welcome

Can you use these instructions to find and upload the dmp file created when your system BSOD'ed? http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...g-process.html

Ken, I've located the dmp file. Do you want me to post the contents of that file here? If I do an Open in Notepad it's all in binary gobblediegoop.

Ken, I think I figured things out. When I did the BIOS upgrade I didn't check all the settings. Some in the new version I missed setting to the values that worked in the previous version. All seems well now.

Any further issues can be ironed out with a Repair Install
