I'm having incredibly annoying issues with my windows starting up on my asus g73sw laptop. It wouldn't go past the windows logo screen. I thought my hard drive was probably shot, so I replaced it with a brand new solid state drive, fresh windows install. Worked perfect for one day, then the same problem. Tried completely fresh installs twice since then and never transferred any files at all in case they were corrupted. The computer will load now, but not before sitting on the windows logo screen for 5 minutes or more. I have checked the BIOS to make sure the solid state drive is boot option number 1. This has been going on for months. For the life of me I can not think of what the issue could possibly be. Does anyone have any clue?

Did you set the Bios to ahci for Win 7 install to the SSD.
Have you run Prime95 to verify your Ram/cpu. Run it in blend mode for about 4 hours. Monitor your CPU temperatures as they tend to run hot when runing prime 95.
