Long time lurker here. Tech savvy, work in IT, etc, but this issue is stumping me.
So about 3 weeks ago, Windows started to randomly hang after login, requiring a hard reset. No hardware or software changes (other than possibly windows update). I was able to boot into safe mode with no problem. Ran chkdsk, sfc/scannow and both reported no issues.
So naturally I reinstalled Windows. Worked great until I upgraded to a Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD. I've reinstalled Windows 4 times over the past 3 days trying to combat this problem.
Everything worked great today, got all my programs installed and whatnot, did a restart because of Windows Update, and low and behold; frozen again.
All my drivers are the most up to date as possible. I'm leaning toward blaming it on Windows Updates, but like I said I can still boot into safe mode with no problem. I can also boot into Diagnostic boot without any issue.
Someone please help!!
