Windows 7: Windows 7 boots after normal restart but not after shutdown

Is it a second hand Laptop?
You said on post #1 that you installed Win 7 Ultimate 64.
- What OS was on it?
- Did you do a clean install?

Is the Bios updated with the last version = F.60 Rev.A

It is used yes. It came installed with the same version of windows 7 that I own, so I wiped the drive and did a clean install. I will try updating the bios, thanks.

Update - updating the bios did not help. I have scoured the internet for a fix, but have found nothing.



My only guess is that this particular SSD drive has a malfunction of some sort, because it both works to boot windows and doesn't.

When you did the clean install, did you delete all partitions, then create one new partition, when you began the install process? By deleting all partitions, then creating one new partition, you totally wipe everything off of the drive. However, if you don't delete all partitions, it is possible that something is still around from previous times.

It is not always advisable to delete all partitions. But it may be in your case.

There is a minute chance that there is a fault in the power rail to the SSD. Perhaps the Power Supply can no longer maintain reference voltages when in demand.

Hello. The first install of windows 7 was done over the main partition (there was also a secondary partition for recovery image)


When I installed windows again, I completely wiped the disk and created one partition using the majority of space on the drive.

Hmm, that is possible. I really can't say with any sort of certainty what the problem is. If the SSD was malfunctioning, I should be seeing errors.



I have used it extensively at this point and I am very pleased with the performance. In the end, I guess I will only be slightly annoyed that I have to press ctrl+alt+delete when powering on in order to get windows to load
