If it freezes in normal boot but not in safe mode, it most likely is a driver or service issue. Is this a new issue or a new install of the OS? Have you switched SATA controller modes recently (IDE/Compatibility vs AHCI/Advanced/RAID)?
Can you hook up the drive to another computer to see if it responds correctly?
Would you be able to run a Windows Repair on the installation using your install disk?
Thank you for your reply!
I switched from IDE to AHCI mode in the BIOS before I installed the OS. I assumed this was the right way to install an OS on a new SSD.
Unfortunately, I only have one pc. So I can't hook up my SSD to another computer right now.
I ran startup repair with my disk, but the system still freezes.
But, after many reboots I discovered that the time varies the computer functions normally before it freezes. Also it seems that booting with all possible services disabled (in the msconfig menu) makes the computer run fine.
Do you know what to do?
