Windows 7: Seems to stall at 1%

03 Jan 2010   #21

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 7601 Multiprocessor - SP1

Just an update, everything was working fine until I got up this morning and the stupid laptop won't even boot AGAIN. lol!!! I think I am just going to tell that lady to get a new computer. It's doing the blank screen with blinking cursor. It won't even let me boot with the CD too again as well.

I would love to get this fixed and have things on record here for other people in the future, so I will try and mess around some more before I totally give up.

You may have hardware problems. If it won't start, burn to CD memtest86 and the HD maker's diagnostics (Seatools, WD Lifeguard, etc. - GWScan works on most) and run their full scans. Attachment 45421

Try tapping F8 at bootup then Last Known Good Config, or Safe Mode to troubleshoot in Event Viewer.

Try booting from the XP CD by tapping the key given for Boot Menu on first bootup screen. Then skip the first "R" for Repair prompt, let it discover the installation, highlight it and click that "R" for Repair Install.

Failing that, burn to CD DBAN and nuke the HD to get the cleanest possible slate. Attempt Win7 install. If not, reinstall XP and try to install Win7 from it.

Try copying the DVD using ImgBurn. Next try copying the files from DVD to XP, run Setup.

Laptop Stall
Alright, so this is kinda weird. I recently downlaoded the new Adobe CS5 suite and was about to install it when I was told to restart first by the setup. So I go ahead and restart and I see that the laptop is taking quite a long time to start-up. After about 8 minutes, the laptop restarted on it's...

Stall when computer screen comes back on
So, when I let my laptop sit for a while, eventually the screen will turn off. When I shake the mouse to bring it back, the computer stalls for about a minute before it will resume operations. Any idea why?
