My com is stuck on the "Starting Windows" screen. The windows logo does not even load and it's just stuck there. I can't even boot up the com in Safe Mode. I'm running Windows7 Ultimate. My specs: Power Supply: Seasonic S12II 520W CPU: Intel i7 860 @ 2.8GHz GPU: MSI Radeon HD 6770 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB 1600 DDR3 More about : startup screen stuck starting windows Engima June 12, 2012 4:05:27 PM Have you done anything to try to figure out the exact problem? I would suspect either RAM or hard drive. Try to use only one stick of RAM and see if it helps. Dialogue June 12, 2012 6:17:21 PM I couldn't even boot up the com with one stick of RAM. Hahaha!

Yup. I narrowed it down to a bad motherboard too. It's time to get a new one. Thanks guys! Pearlmam June 20, 2012 12:05:25 AM Dialogue said:I couldn't even boot up the com with one stick of RAM.
