I've been going through the same ****ing annoying dance with my desktop for the past months. It started around the time I replaced XP with Windows 7.
Essentially, I have to go through 10+ reboots before my PC works every morning when I start my PC.
Here are some of the things that happen (in no particular order):
- Hanging at "Initializing USB controllers" on the very first screen when the PC boots
- Hanging at the "starting Windows" screen (the Windows logo never appears)
- BSODing shortly after log in or during any part of the boot process
Due to the above, I go through 10+ reboots before I'm able to use my PC. This means my startup time, instead of 1-2 min, is closer to 20 min EVERY DAY. I put up with it because I'm lazy but I really need to sort this out because it's getting annoying.
