Freezing at Windows 7 is starting logo


I recently fitted a Foxconn H55MX-S Motherboard into a new case and connected a Ati HD6970 with a 900w Antec power supply. Reinstalled windows 64bit pro. Now everytime I switch off the computer and power is on again it freezes on the Windows is starting logo.

If I go into the Bios and tell it to load into BIos and select optimal settings then save and restart it boots into windows fine I can restart it fine. But as soon as I power it off and back on it freezes. Have changed the memory same thing happens. Can anyone help

Thanks in advance

Does it have the right boot order in the BIOS?  Is the boot drive visible in the BIOS?
Check the CMOS battery - it should be 3v.  The motherboard may have been lying around and the battery has drained, causing problems remembering settings when it boots.  Replacing it with another is cheap.

Check your RAM - you may want to try one module at a time, if you are using more than one.

Power-related problems can also be due to bad capacitors, either on the motherboard or in the power supply.  If you inspect them and any are bulging at the top or leaking, that is a problem.
Check and see if the "Superfetch" service is enabled, if so disable it. This seemed to have helped others.

In safe mode, click start and type msconfig in the search field. Once you are in msconfig, go to services and disable "superfetch"


Superfetch fetches all the programs you use so the next time you want to use them they will start more quickly. This can cause your system to hang at startup.
