Re: Laptop hangs at welcome screen ~7 minutes
I'll give the bios usb thing a try. Actually while I was in the BIOS i found a hard drive test and it came back with an error #2-07. Seems nobody on the internet knows exactly what it means, but some type of hd error. I downloaded the hitachi hd analyzer tools which boot from a dvd. I can start the test but eventually it always freezes. Now looking for another hd tester utility.
