Vista hangs after a few times of booting

By Sab3r

  1. I searched a whole lot on the inet but didn't find any solution.

    First system specs:
    mobo: MSI P6N SLI platinum
    CPU: Intel Quad core Q6600
    memory: Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800mhz 4gb
    Vidcard: Geforce 7950GT 512mb
    soundcard: creative SB audigy SE
    PS: Coolermaster M700

    Win Vista ultimate x64

    now here's what happens.
    At first its all great, no problems at, I can install my drivers without a problem
    everthing is fine, but then, it just hangs at the desktop, it can't even load a program.
    I thought it was a little slow cause some ppl report having probs with 4gb installed with the mobo I got.
    So I tried to open the start menu, left it for an hour but nothing.

    I reinstalled vista and my problems were gone, or so I thought, the same thing
    happened again, after I installed all the drivers and video codecs, it hangs on
    the next reboot, complete freeze.

    Booting in safe mode with networking is no problem, its fine.
    But booting in normal mode is a disaster.

    The system is fairly new and I installed the 32 bit version earlier and I had no problems, ever.

    I think the problem lies in it tries to load a certain program which isn't supported
    by the 64bit version since I installed it the way I installed the 32 bit version.
    Also since safe mode booting works, its probebly something it tries to load but
    isn't able too.
    Reinstalling Vista would solve te problem but reinstalling the drivers would
    probebly give me the same prob again and I kinda need em.

    I have a boot log, don't know if that helps:

    I don't really know what to read from the bootlog, it has allot of errors in it though.

    thx anyway

    Sounds like a problem with one of your 64-bit drivers since the system runs fine under 32bit vista. If you haven't already, download all the latest 64-bit drivers then use those. Also, update your BIOS to the latest and greatest. Try to determine which driver is causing the issue and perhaps you can get a previous verison if at all possible. Hope that helps.
