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
