    PC Locks up and hangs at lock screen, what should I do?


    So, I am trying to describe my problem as best I can:

    My lock screen background remains blue and doesn't actually switch to a wallpaper, This means that windows locks up before loading the lock screen. What can I do?


    TL;DR: My computer hangs before loading the lock screen wallpaper, and the background stays blue. What can I do?


    My build is:

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 780

    16GB DDR3 RAM

    Intel Core i5-2400

    Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Motherboard

    600W PSU Not cheap, new cost as much as all the components now used

    KingDian 280S SATA SSD OS

    I hooked up the normal stuff:

    An USB mouse

    An USB Keyboard

    An USB webcam

    An Xbox One S controller unplugged it, PC does the same

    :)

    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen
