Windows 7: Cold Boot Hang

22 Nov 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate
Cold Boot Hang

PC failed to cold boot, stopped just before the Windows logo came in. Restarted the pc and all appeared ok but again noticed that the system time had gone out again (seems to do this when it hangs).

The dumps it collected would be before I tested the below as it did not BSOD today just hung on the first boot.

Really cannot get to the bottom of this:
  • Ram test came back ok
  • I have disabled readyboost
  • Tried IDE Sata mode
  • Pulled hair out

Conected USB devices at startup:
Sharkoon Fireglider Mouse
Logitech G15 Keyboard
Nvidia 3D vision

My pc is:
MSI 785GTM-E45
Phenom AM2+ Quad 2.3
1tb Samsung F3 HDD
2bg DDR2 800
Nvidia GTX460
700W PSU
