Im having windows7 32 bit, it just happened out of sudden my system hanged, I forcibly cut off the power and rebooted. At the startup screen where the four balls appear forming windows, my system hanged(everytime thereafter).
I tried to tweak some settings in the BIOS and found that switching off the ON BOARD LAN clears the problem. This even deprives me off from any internet activity. I tried to find topics with similar problems, but to no avail.
I have live-booted with Ubuntu to make sure that my on-board LAN hardware is OK. Ubuntu has no problems, it ran flawlessly.
- I have tried taking out the ethernet cable and rebooting.
- Tried to shut down the CPU, taken off the power cable and tried to press the power button for about 10min to make sure the chips in the CPU are completely discharged.
- neither Safe Mode nor Safe Mode With Networking works both hang at the point when CLASSPNP.sys driver is loaded
- After all I reinstalled a fresh copy of windows 7.
Its almost 5 days of trying to restore my windows 7 back to normal still my computer crashes at the startup screen.
Kindly help me. Your help would be highly appreciated. Thank you
