USING Windows 7 X64 Professional (MSDN legit)
Motherboard : ASUS P5B-E

everything was working fine until afew days ago i noticed when i do a COLD boot the computer does NOT start it hangs on windows logo, however if i just press RESTART it works fine,
once windows is loaded, i can do restarts and works fine, but if i do SHUTDOWN and start the computer again, on the FIRST boot computer hangs, i booted in safemode and it gets stuck on CLASSPNP.SYS with no HD activity.

here is the interesting part, if i shut down the computer, when i start dont do anything system gets hanged on CLASSPNP.SYS BUT if i shutdown, and when i start just go in bios and exit (dont change a thing), PC boots fine !!!! anyone has any idea what is going on?

see if a bios update exists and make sure all your drivers are up to date.

this post from another site & was success with this CMOS setting
1. Disable CPI APIC support
2. Under PCI/PnP settings, set Plug and Play O/S = YES.
