Windows 7 Freezes after login, stops at welcome screen Tags: Windows 7 Login Last response: August 29, 2011 6:36 AM in Windows 7 Share jamesdaman August 29, 2011 6:09:25 AM I recently reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 7 on a computer that's been having freezing problems. After I installed my display driver for my video card, I can't get past the welcome screen after I log in. I can boot up properly in safe mode, and when I disable my video card in my device manager, then I can log in fine. I haven't made any hardware changes since I first built the PC and I've tried updating the drivers to a later version. Is there anyone that's had or problem like this before or know of a solution? Specs are as follows: * OS: Windows 7 Pro 32-Bit * CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 925 * Video Card: nVidia Geforce GTS 450 * Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX430 * Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 More about : windows freezes login stops screen warhead0 August 29, 2011 6:36:38 AM Perhaps it would just be best to do a quick format of the drive and install windows once again. Sometimes you get unlucky and things don't quite work as they should. If you still have problems, there could very well be an issue with the video card/Drivers. Check if the card is correctly seated in it's PCI-E slot and has the power cables correctly connected. Also if you are using the latest drivers try using older drivers (like the on the cd that came with the card) m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
