Hey guys I have a custom build. I've only done two builds before but they did pretty well make computers dummy proof. Or so I thought :)
I have a win 7 machine that post successfully and goes to win7 load screen but fails to actually load windows for SEVERAL hours. This computer was used from Feb of this year up until about 3 months ago.
At first I thought it was the harddrive (more like prayed seeing as how cheap they are); but I picked one up from Frys today and it was sloooooow installing win 7. I.E. after 30 minutes it still hadn't made it past the splash screen.
So the next culprits I suspect are RAM- It is 4 gigs of Buffered ram from Patriot.
Motherboard- Gigabyte
Processor- AMD Dual core

Just so you know none of this started until I moved so wondering if something was jostled in the move? Any help would be great.

Actually I did figure it out- it was the harddrive after all. I forgot that the cd rom speed of the computer is extreamly slow which affected it when trying to install to the new hd.

Who knew WD Blues could fail so dramatically.

Thanks for the reply and attempt though- and pass it on to other future users if they have the same problem.
