Hi, recently updated my XP to Windows 7
SP 1 is installed as are all current updates.
Installation went fine and once running goes well but more often than not I am having difficulty on start up.
When I power up the start up gets as far as the Windows 7 logo then simply goes no further.
The comp just freezes there untill I switch it off again no matter how long I wait.
When powered up again I have attempted several startup repairs in system recovery options. No faults are found.
After resorting to a system restore the computer will always start up successfully.
I use an external drive and have tried starting up without it connected to see if it makes a difference but no.
I'm starting to get fed up of having to constantly do system restores to get the comp going.
Absolutely any suggestions will be greatfully appreciated indeed!
