I have a system that runs the Asus P5Q Pro mother board and I recently added the 2TB WD Green HDD (WD20EARS). I formatted it NTFS with MBR. The system has been running for a week now without any problems and then tonight the system locked up on me as I was copying some files around. When I went to reboot, Windows 7 locks up at the windows logo and doesn't go any further. When I reboot again, I then get asked to perform a startup repair. When I run that, nothing is found and the problem is not resolved. When I unplug my new HDD, I am able to get back into Windows with no problems.
So there is obviously a compatibility issue between my MB and my HDD but don't have a clue where to start so that I can resolve this issue.
