I just put down the cash for a custum core i5 system on black friday and am having some serious Windows 7 issues. The relevant specs are as follows:
Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.66 Ghz
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3L Motherboard
4GB DDR3 RAM
2 x 320 GB HDDs in RAID 0
HIS ATI Radeon HD 4350
Coolmax 600W PS
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
It's been a long story and a frustrating day, but I'll try to boil this down to the basics. I had a little trouble up front getting the Windows 7 installer to accept the correct RAID drivers but finally got that ironed out and the installer kept going as normal. When the installer got past the first reboot, the screen went blank and didn't come back around for a long time. Not sure what had happened, I waited around for a while and then rebooted. Same thing happened. It did this blank screen thing several times in a row (as in, the monitor goes to sleep becuase it's not receiving signal). Assuming that something had gone wrong in the install, I re-installed from scratch, hoping that would fix it. It didn't at first. I eventually got it boot correctly (purely by chance) and thought my troubles were over. Unfortunately, it's doing it again now, and making for a very angry Windows 7 user.
That's the back story. The summary version is this:
-Whenever I boot the machine, I get the "Starting Windows" graphic (the moving pixie dots), and then the screen goes blank - no mouse cursor, no response of any kind even though the machine is still running.
-I can consistently get the OS to boot in safe mode (with or without networking) and it seems to run smoothly that way.
I'm at a loss here, never having encountered an issue quite like this. I searched diligently aroung the interet, and havn't been able to locate anyone who has experienced quite this same problem. I would greatly appreciate any help.
