Windows 7: Dell's Optiplex 7010 mini tower SSD hang-up issue

Have you tried Control-Alt-Delete which should work anyway to open Task Manager?

If not then you'll need to rely on the logs and other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

Still waiting for the Disk Mgmt screenshot, 3rd request.

@gregrocker: Sorry. I thought that disk management thing was a part of the commercial that's inserted automatically by this site.

The screenshot is attached here.

As for ctrl+alt+del I tried it too. What happens is that the Windows 7 login-looking screen came up with a message that I've never seen before -- something like "Wait for security to be loaded up." Then it waits until the system becomes operational (as I said about half a minute.) At that point everything starts working normal.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Northernsoul55's solution fixes it...
