Ok..so weird problem:
I was using my computer and everything was great (been using Win7 RC for a few months now and it's been superb). Then had the hardest crash i've ever seen. Just pure lock up. Cursor working (moving) but couldn't click on anything, no blue screen, just hanging there. Turned off the computer manually and tried to reboot.
Hung on the win 7 logo for more than an hour. Didn't budge. Just hung.
tried to boot into safe mode. No dice, hung.
i then tried to boot into Win 7 dvd...hung on logo as well.
Finally i unplugged my main hard drive (150gb raptor) and bam, booted into the dvd. so i'm thinking my main drive failed but on the off chance something else weird was going on i unplugged my 2nd drive (2tb WD), plugged my main drive back in and bam, booted into win 7 dvd.
so now i was officially confused.
i kept the WD 2tb drive unplugged and tried to boot into windows and bam, booted just fine.
so what's the deal? My culprits are PS, then maybe the WD 2tb drive, and finally the mobo.
