PROBLEM:  My computer freezes at the ASUS Sabertooth X58 motherboard splash screen.  I do not even get to Windows 7.  Multiple reboots failed to solve the problem.  Trying to boot from the Windows 7 rescue disk yielded the same probem.  So I decided that downloading but not yet installing Windows 10 could not be the problem.  It had to be a motherboard issue.

 

SOLUTION:  While opening the computer to determine the motherboad serial number, I found the inside to be filthy.  So I cleaned it.  I buttoned it up, rebooted, and everything worked perfectly.

 

MORAL;  (1) Clean your computer at least one every 6 months.  Put the task on your calendar and DO IT.

                (2) Sometimes it is the simple stuff that will drive you nuts.

Sometimes it's the simple things which make for complicated scenarios...happy computing :).
