  laptop freezes at startup 
 Date Written

Hi there.

Was hoping if someone could help me with a problem I got with my laptop.

The problem I got is that the PC kinda freezes at the loading screen, it loads for a while and suddenly it stops. But this is only when I run it normally, Safe mode works though. I was told to put in my recovery disc, and so I did, ran the full recovery, but it didn't help.
Anyone know what my problem might be and how to solve it?

You need to try and find the cause of the problem using elimination. Start out testing your hard drive and memory.

Memory testing: memtest86
Hard drive: Go to the manufacturer's website and download their diagnostic utility.
