Windows 7: Windows 7 crash about 4 minutes after startup

Windows 7 64 bit
Windows 7 crash about 4 minutes after startup

This only started today when I arrived home. Windows would just stop, sounds continued but i couldnt click anything or ctr alt delete. The mouse can still move and after a few more minutes the computer would black screen and SEEM to reboot but be stuck at black screen with no post. I have another hard drive with the same windows installed (but its hd not ssd). and it ran normally without crash so this is not a hardware issue. I can log in for a few minutes to collect some logs that anyone needs to help me but i dont know what yall need.

I will be back in 3 hrs after work to try to fix this.

Win7 Ultimate X64

Hi th3psycho, welcome to seven forums

I would start with safe mode to see if that boots ok, if it does then its prob a driver issue or 3rd party software issue
This will also give to time to check error logs/event viewer & if required enter msconfig for startup options

Also as this is a recent problem you have the option of system restore to change your system back to a good configuration before problems started
