Hey guys, so yesterday I built my first pc, and after being frustrated with all the cables finally got it to work on my first boot up! Everything went fine, I installed windows 7 64 bit , updated my drivers, and then my anti virus. I have it installed on my 120 gb crucial SDD.
The problem starts when i turn my computer on. It goes past the BIOS start up screen and then it shows the windows logo, and then the screen freezes and its all black. All it takes so far (tried 3 times) is a simple restart and then i need to choose the option to start windows as normal because i restarted the computer. There is another option to repair something Ive tried it but it doesnt do anything.
If all it takes is a restart, i guess i can live with that. But i cannot find out what the problem is.
