Kept Freezing With Windows Logo And Rotating Dots After Just A Few Seconds

Mar 3, 2016

I just upgraded my previous rig- so keeping the motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, optical drive. New case, SSD for Windows, HDD. After building, I ran the Windows 10 installer on the SSD with the HDD and ODD still connected, went off without a hitch. However after it restarted, it kept freezing with the Windows logo and the rotating dots after just a few seconds. I managed to get into the Windows setup (that comes after that booting screen) once, but when I was going through it the computer froze again. So I tried to reinstall- saw that having peripherals can impact things, so I disconnected the ODD and HDD and tried again. Once again the install itself on the SDD went fine, but same issue, even when I disconnected all USBs including mouse, keyboard etc.

I managed to get into Startup Repair (when the computer restarted after I exited the BIOS, which works fine), but it didn't find anything.The Windows 10 install is off an MBR-partitioned USB burned with Rufus.So what my very limited research and understanding of UEFI/BIOS firmware has led me to understand is that the initial USB with MBR partitioning is likely the issue. So if I re-burn the Windows 10 bootable USB, this time with GPT partitioning.

Windows Start Screen Comes On With 4 Squares And Rotating Dots When Switch On

Feb 15, 2016

After closing down computer the other day, when trying to switch back on Windows start screen comes on with 4 squares and rotating dots, but the screen then just goes black or white with no mouse pointer.

I have tried F8 which goes into recovery mode and I have tried all repair modes, but none of them work.

it must surely be something to do with Windows as I can go into recovery mode.

Updates :: Machine Stuck On Update With Rotating Dots?

Feb 10, 2016

I have been using win 10 for quite a long time and am happy with it. This evening when I was opening up a word document it behaved strangely . I could shut it down but after that everything stopped working. Ctrl alt delete wont respond. I had to shut down the computer using the Power button. When I restarted the computer . It immediately went into update mode screen with the usual configuring windows and warning about not shutting down the computer .The screen is orange with circulating dots. ( first time I see an orange screen , its usually blue) .At the beginning there was a short indication of % like about 35% but now only circulating dots . Nothing else works . Its already been running for 1/2 hour or so. I will leave it overnight to see whether I can get to the log in screen.

What to do if I cant get to the log in screen ? Without log in screen I cant get to system restore? Is there a way to boot into recovery mode? I do have a Macrium image and a Macrium recovery flash drive. Will windows recognize this thumb drive on boot or do I have to boot into Bios first to change order of boot .

Alternatively can make and use win 10 recovery flash drive from another window 10 machine?

Press Start Button Get Acer Logo Screen And The Loading Dots Move

Jan 21, 2016

Whenever I press the start button I get the Acer logo screen and the loading dots move without a problem.Then I get a black screen for a couple of seconds and then the Acer logo screen again, but this time the loading dots won't move, as if something went wrong, it stays that way (frozen) for a while, after that the windows loading screen appears (nothing written just those moving loading dots) and I finally get the windows lock screen.  I don't think this should be happening, it happens both when the fast startup is enabled or disabled.

Mouse Keeps Freezing - Cut Out In 10 Seconds And Then Come Back

Oct 26, 2015

I have a problem with my mouse. For some reason, my razer mouse keeps freezing when I'm using it. I can use it for maybe 30 seconds, and it will cut out in 10 seconds, and then come back. I have used this mouse in about 2 years without a problem, but it started occurring about 10 days ago. I don't know if the mouse is broken, or if it's installed incorrectly.

No Video Available After Windows Logo

Apr 4, 2016

I restarted my PC after my screen blanked out in a game I was playing after changing the resolution. Then when I boot my PC, the Windows logo appears, the loading thing starts rotating, then it black screens and my monitor displays some text saying "no video avaliable".The only thing I can think of is hard drive corrupted as, whilst running, my PC almost tipped over, but I stopped it.

I will try boot the PC with another hard drive to test my theory

Black Screen After Windows Logo

Nov 1, 2015

So it started this morning:

I turned on my pc and it froze right after it passed the Blue windows logo screen. A black screen appeared with no cursor.

I rebooted the pc (through the reset button) and everytime it got stuck at the black screen and then rebooted on its own. After a few rounds of black screen and reboots, I got the advanced repair options but it couldn't repair anything.

A very few times that it did manage to go boot and go to the desktop, it froze and didn't let me open any files or folders. Also when I mouse over the files, a black box appears around the icons and the file names appear garbled

I haven't installed anything lately that might cause this to happen.

Boot Froze On Windows Logo

Mar 27, 2016

Yesterday morning the PC worked fine. Last night it refused to load Windows (10) but rather froze on the logo, with the whirly loader. Forced shut down, tried again, same deal. Next time it said "Starting Windows repair", but froze. Next time it said it too, and the next time it didn't. It hasn't said it since. I left it sitting on the frozen screen for about a half an hour, and it gave an error message "Boot disk inaccessible". Unhooked everything, reset CMOS, checked BIOS, reseated memory, ran memory diagnostics, etc..

So I put in a brand spanking new SSD assuming the old one was to blame (as it had become a bit sluggish anyway, being a few years old and all) and went to install new Windows from an official USB stick. And up comes Windows logo and the whirly loading thingy.... and it freezes. I just don't know what to do anymore.

Laptop Booting Stuck On Windows Logo

Jul 27, 2015

So I found this issue in my second laptop that running W10TP. I have HP as my first, and ASUS as the second one.

In my ASUS (2nd) I can't booting the laptop without force shut down through hold the power button, because it always stuck at Windows logo. After shutdown and boot again, I succeeded into the lock screen. But it taking too long in the blank screen for almost one minute.

This issue never happened in my HP laptop.

I've tried many methods to find this issue, system scan, virus scan, update installed drivers, driver scan (it failed). And for a couple days it work so well and I'm happy for that, no more stuck at booting.

But the issue come again after many security update for build 10240. The booting is stuck again and BSOD with pfn_list_ corrupted. After restart the laptop I've tried again all the methods that I've did. And then I found so many viruses and malwares from Windows Defender. It's odd for me because it is never happened before, and suddenly of course.

After the viruses were cleaned, the issue is still persist. I want to reset my laptop from settings/update& security/recovery/reset. Is this necessary to do considering W10 will come in 3 days left?

Installation :: Cannot Format Windows - Stuck After Asus Logo

Sep 1, 2015

I bought an asus tranformerbook t200(with windows 10 update) on 11 august and was very happy with it.

Occasionally, the laptop couldnt find any wifi networks but that was fixed quickly by just turning the computer on and off, until today.

Today at school(my second school day at university), i had no internet anymore. He didnt find any networks anymore at all. Turning the laptop on and off wouldnt so a thing. So i tried some things, like turning the broadcom device on and off via device manager. That also didnt work. A user in the internet on another topic suggested to delete the broadcom and then reboot, i did it and things only got worse. My laptop didnt recognize the broadcom wifi adapter anymore at all.

Then I tried to format windows(with saving documents addition) which unfortunately failed. After that, i tried to format it and added the option that everything would be cleaned, that failed also. c windows system32 logfiles srt srttrail.txt is apparently the error.

Now if i start the laptop, the asus logo will show but thereafter the screen just turns black. I tried system recovery and even startup repair but both fail.

Customization :: How To Change The Windows White Start Up Logo

Oct 19, 2015

I would like to change the Windows white start up logo (see photo) to a more colorful one.

In an earlier Ten Forums post there was software that did this called "Windows 8.1 start button changer" which is no longer available. The replacement software is called "CustomizerGod" but when I tried downloading it I received several virus warnings. Is there other software available that is "safe" to use?

Low On Memory - Windows Freezing Intermittently

Aug 5, 2015

I've never had this message appear on Windows 8 and I did go and disable anything I felt I wasn't using sufficiently. But my Windows 10 is freezing intermittently and I'm getting a message about low memory.

What gives? I have 4GB RAM and that's all my PC will hold, unfortunately. Is Windows 10 gobbling up memory?

Windows Hard Freezing When Left Idle

Jan 25, 2016

This has been going on for months, I've even reinstalled Windows 10 a couple of times, the the issue still persists.

Windows 10 64 bit, Radeon HD 7970 Ghz Ed 6gb x2 [crossfire is usually disabled and makes no difference either way], i7 3770, nothing is overclocked, all power settings are disabled and should never sleep or shut down, I'm using a wired internet connection and all wireless is already disabled, I have a SSD that is set to not power down ever, and all HW monitors [CPUz, Open Hardware Monitor, Sapphire Trixx, HWinfo] show everything is running well within acceptable temps and running smoothly with no spikes or issues.

Windows 10 keeps freezing hard on me, but only if I leave it alone for a few minutes. This happens without fail every time I leave the PC alone for more than 10-15 minutes or so.

It will run fine for days, as long as I'm right in front of it and actively doing something on it, playing a game, watching a video, browsing the internet, whatever. As long as there's some kind of active input, it works fine and doesn't freeze.

I step away for a few minutes, and it freezes hard. No input works, not the mouse, not ctrl-alt-del, nothing. I have to hard reset the stupid thing. I go make something to eat and leave the PC running, take the dog out, or go to the bathroom and I come back to a locked up hard frozen PC every time. It never happens when I'm sitting right in front of it and using it, only when I step away for a few minutes to do something and don't make it back within a few minutes.

I've tried all sorts of fixes. Nothing is overclocked, and my GPU driver has had several new versions while this has been going on. This has been a persistent problem for months and I've spent quite a few hours over that time trying to find a fix. I've seen various threads that refer to this issue, and some of them claim to have fixed it, but none of the solutions work for me. Sometimes it'll get better for a short time, the freezes will be less frequent or take a slightly longer time to hit me, but eventually it just goes right back to this behavior again without fail.

I've adjusted all the power settings several different ways, including setting it so everything never shuts down, made sure the HDD is set to not shut down, clean booted with only the essential bare bones Windows programs running at Startup, checked and rechecked every disk using command prompt commands, run in safe mode, scanned for viruses, malware, and adware repeatedly, disabled the wireless card, unplugged every piece of extra hardware, tried several different keyboards and mice, adjusted the Bios settings in various ways having to do with power and the HDD, uninstalled and reinstalled every driver, rolled them back, used administrator privileges to disable and enable various things, disabled and enabled my AV and firewall, uninstalled my AV, reinstalled it again, adjusted every startup option and tweaked the task manager all sorts of different ways, isolated my PC away from the network and internet, my page file is set up properly for a SSD and I've tweaked it several different ways, nothing works.

It still freezes if I step away from it for more than a few minutes no matter what I do, but only if I step away. I can also prevent it from doing so by playing a video and letting it run while I'm away.

If I pause a game or leave one running while I step away from the PC, it freezes as well. Only video seems to prevent it from crashing like this for some reason, Youtube or a video player running an MP4 or MKV file will keep the PC running if I have something playing and step away, but that's the only reliable way I've found to keep it from locking up.

I shouldn't have to do that though, and I inevitably forget and come back to a frozen PC often losing posts, progress, and it's super annoying. I can't figure out what the hell the issue is despite months of on again off again troubleshooting. Playing with the power settings made it get better briefly, but it never fixed the issue and the PC eventually went right back to behaving the same way regardless of how I set my power settings.

This has been going on for months, so it's not hardware failure. If that had been the issue, whatever it was would have long since died. Everything runs perfectly fine while I'm actively using the PC as well.

Near as I can tell, Windows 10 is ignoring some sort of power setting and trying to go into some sort of sleep mode or something even though I have it set to never do that, and it's causing a hard freeze. That's my best guess here given that it only ever happens when the PC is idle and I'm away from it.

I am currently using an older version of CCC for my GPU, but I am aware of it. I have an Oculus Rift DK2 and the latest drivers do not work with it. They are intentionally rolled back currently and I have already tried the newest drivers. They don't change anything and the PC still freezes if left alone even with the newest Crimson Drivers from AMD.

This is super frustrating and I'm at a bit of a loss here about what to do. Nothing has worked, not even a clean install of Windows 10 with everything wiped from the drive. It persists and refuses to stay running if left idle too long no matter what I do. My PC works, but I can't leave it to download anything over a long period of time or pause a game to go do something.

DXdiag attached ....

Windows / File Explorer Lagging And Freezing

Aug 17, 2015

This is a very annoying problem I have in Windows 10. If I open This PC (for example) icon on my desktop, all of my RAM and CPU will be used and it will freeze my Windows for 20 seconds or so. The same applies to all the folders I try to open. When moving a 100MB folder, it uses almost all of my RAM and disk. I have tried the following commands but none worked: sfc /scannow, chkdsk and DISM.

I have a HP Pavillion P6-2006pt desktop.
