I have a home built PC, though I did not build it. After start up there is a good chance the computer screen will freeze and the mouse and keyboard no longer respond. I use the electrical cut off button to restart. At times rebooting,  the Windows start up has been interrupted, but this is more common after updating. Consequently, I just reboot until I get a stable running environment.

I've had this problem checked out three times by more savvy people then I, but none of the hardware shows fault.  I do not have many non windows processes resident and except for those that were bundled with the sound card none seem to be the fault. I realized nobody was checking the Happaugh TV card, which I don't need, and think to remove.

How would I remove the Hippaugh TV card?

Any input on what else could cause this problem is appreciated.

Thought to add this problem may occur up to 50 minutes past windows log on, and can occur while the system is idling at the password screen. I just wait for it there, no sense getting involved and losing that work

Well...you need to physically remove the card...but, more importantly, you need to uninstall the drivers and software which accompany that card.

 

But...i don't think this is a problem...your hard shutdowns do more damage each time that you do such...it's common for system files to become damaged during/by such...and that includes files used to boot the system.

 

I suggest running the chkdsk /r command, as a start.

 

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.  Type Y in new screen, hit Enter.  Reboot...the command will execute before attempting to boot into Windows.

The problem was present before the system was used. This error is not based in bad sectors or corrupted system files, because I have tried using companies that work with system file integrity checks and replacing entire system images. Respectfully, the problem is in the build somewhere. Given that, I have checked and found errors many times, the most recent full scan check being last week. This 'freezing up' sometime after boot problem has been going on for a long time. Granted Windows needs its shutdown, but this computer can't even keep updated so doing things correctly is more objective then practical.

The only thing left is removing hardware a piece at a time, unless you have another idea, scan disk will not fix this particular problem, yet I appreciate that advice.
