UserXP Posted July 24, 2016 Share Posted July 24, 2016 Hello, all. I am sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section of the forum, but I would like to try to solve something that has been bugging me for months now. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit build. Upon starting the computer and everything loading up in Desktop, a few minutes later there is a constant LED lit for disk activity, although I don't hear the HDD doing anything. During that time, I can start some programs, but those that do with HD won't start. This last for 2-3 minutes. After whatever it has been doing is done, the programs run during the hang suddenly appear, all works normal - until next restart. There is no malware on the PC. Now, I have discovered that if in those few minutes after the boot-up I start AIDA, it will hang at "Loading Driver" screen and cause the exact behaviour! Obviously, AIDA's driver triggers whatever is being triggered to cause this hang and I have been using AIDA as a tester to see whether I may have fixed the issue by trying to disable some startup tasks, services or scheduled task, but no luck so far. After this hanging is done, AIDA continues to load and after that the PC is fully usable. AIDA is good as I can use it as a trigger because if I wait for Windows to start it, it doesn't always happen at the same moment. But AIDA obviously triggers it with something no matter the time. If anybody has an idea what could it be, please let me know. Another way to force the hang is to select Restart or Shutdown immediately after the computer has booted. Then Windows will also trigger this hang and won't let the PC turn off until it's done - HD LED is on, no HD sounds, hangs for the sime amount of time - I suspect it is some process that causes this I just haven't figured out which one it is, yet. I would really like to get to the bottom of this, please help diagnose this annoyance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
