Windows 7: Sporadic freezing on 'Starting Windows' screen and on sleep

30 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Not sure which part exactly tells you what you need to know, so here's the results of all 8 buttons from SF Diag Tool.exe and a new Speccy.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

So I went ahead and disassembled the laptop down to the fans. The dust didn't look too bad, but I took a vaccum to it and put it all back together and WOW! I did a cold reboot 4 or 5 times in a row and put it to sleep using the power button and closing the lid and every single time it came back! I can definitely physically feel that the bottom is cooler, and here's a Speccy I just ran that shows the temps are way down.

Thank you so so much centaur! This had been driving me crazy for more than a month! I'll still keep an eye on my temperatures but it really looks like it's solved.
