Windows 7: Boot animation freezes

05 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise
Boot animation freezes

I am sure everyone recognizes this: at almost every startup, you see the boot animation. Windows 7 uses those 4 colors that merge into a Windows flag.

But the animation freezes at a random moment, then after 3 seconds it disappears and there we have the normal menu where you choose a profile to login with.

I want to see the animation completely, so making use of those 3 seconds where the OS is loading to continue the animation.

You have this in Windows XP too, where the loading bar freezes.

Are there any solutions for this? It would be fantastic to see the Windows flag at the end, and not just those 4 colors about-to-merge.

I had a similar affect when I was using an older ATI X700Pro video card. When I replaced the card with an HD3850, the "problem" was gone.

I have a Sapphire X1900XT, a 3 year old card. But is that related? I'm almost sure this must have something to do with drivers or something similar, because after a fresh install this issue doesn't show up (or actually, it does show up ).
