Running Win7 ult. At boot up, system displays Gigabyte splash screen and hangs. BIOS et.c inaccessible. Prior to this, sometimes it would load win7, then hang. Now stuck on splash.
Hardware . . . or virus?
Thank you both. I forced shutdown once more, and left it to gaze at its navel for an hour or so. Started up, and this time booted OK. It's been running all day, now I'm dubious about shutting it down!
First thing I did was to let Kasperski loose on it. After a complete check no faults found. Action centre flag was set to run system maintenance. All that found were unused shortcuts.
Makes me think it might be thermal issue. All four cores are reporting 79C as they usually do. Does that seem high to you?
