I was transferring a file via an SD card in the slot in my laptop, and while transferring -- the computer froze. I had to manually turn off the computer and after that, I have been unable to login regularly. At the login screen, my mouse/cursor freezes for a few seconds, then when I do enter my password, it gets stuck at the Welcome screen. However, everything works fine in Safe Mode. It might be worth noting though that in Safe mode the SD card is not recognized
I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7, upgrading from Vista. Also, I've already disabled all startup programs with no change
When scanning my drivers in device manager, a problem showed up with "Base System Device" -- no driver was found. Is this related?
