Windows 7: Freeze on start up

windows 7
Freeze on start up


i have had this problem for a few days now, ill start from the begining.

my computer started freezing on on the windows loading screen, so i had to turn my computer off again, wait a few seconds and start it agin, it then worked on the second time. i couldnt get into any kind of safemode.

when i got into windows i had loads of generic win32 errors, i couldnt acess the internet or any anti spy/virus programs. i shut it down and it hangs so i have to manually swith it off.

i was on xp so i thought i would format my computer and install windows 7. This has helped with all the win32 errors but my computer still freezes on start up at the windows loading screen and still requires me to swith it off and restart it, this works most of the time. might have to do this 2 or 3 times.

i have looked in the events viewer and it says i have 3 errors:
error 6 kernel process power
restart manager.

My apoligies if this is a same type of question/error but i have looked for 2 days for a fix for this and i havent been able to find the right answer.

thanks for any help

Sound like you're having the same problem. I don't think I can help as you seem more at ease with the software than I and have tried some self-repair. Let's hope someone else has a fix.

i still have the problem even after updating to windows 7. ive just left it now as i couldnt find a answer or fix. when you restart just leave it for a few seconds when the pc turns off, then turn it back on. i found this works. annoying but its the only solotuion ive found.
