  1. Windows 10 freezes at Login


    So i updated my PC from windows 7 to windows 10. Had an error but solved it by changing my default save dir to c drive again. After installation my computer freezes either right after i enter my password (it just says welcome with the spinny circle forever) or it hits the desktop and loads my wallpaper but nothing else if i do cntr alt delete it opens up the menu but if i select task manager nothing happens and then i cant do cntr alt delete anymore. It works fine in safe mode. I have deleted all my drivers (graphics, ethernet, wifi, audio) removed all startup and even uninstalled some programs that start up and arnt on the task manager startup list. Sometimes after about 4-10 reboots ill get a good startup and can use my pc for as long as i want untill i shut it down and restart. Then the whole process starts over again. My build is intel i5, gigabyte g1 nvidia 970, 20gb ddr3 ram 1 ssd which has os and 2 hdds for data. Any help is appreciated.

    :)

    Windows 10 Free Upgrade Freezes at Login

    Thank you for the response and info! I will look into this and see what I can do.

    Update:

    I have quite nervously updated my BIOS, which was version 5.6, to 5.7 (The latest version on the msi website for the H97 PC Mate motherboard as seen in the link below).

    I updated my chipset driver using MSI Live Update 6 and then tried to install Windows 10 again.

    Once again it successfully went through every step, got to a login page, I type in my info, hit next and everything freezes as previously mentioned. (I will not go into as much detail in this issue, as it is exactly the same as the quoted text above.)

    I restored my computer from a boot disk doubled checked that my bios was fully updated, checked to see if the chipset driver was fully updated and found that the live update does not have the latest version.

    As seen in the link below, the MSI website for my motherboard shows a new chipset driver (for windows 7 64 bit) that was released on August 05, 2015.

    I updated the chipset driver again using those files. Made sure it installed properly and once again went through the download process again and ran into the exact same issue. At this point I am fairly pissed and beyond tired of dealing with this process.

    I am going to try one more time, due to the fact that I did not use Vnodh.V's link to download Windows 10. I forgot that he posted it after the stress of flashing my BIOS and only remembered it while typing this. I will post again if that does or does not
    work and would like quick feedback on how to resolve this issue.

    Thank you for replying, but this is not possible with my issue. I found information instruction me to enter safe through the way you describe, but there is not power button on the sign in screen at this time for me. Only the next button in the lower right.
    Because of this, entering safe mode in this manner is impossible. (That I have been able to tell). I only mention this so that anyone with the same problem of me is also aware.
