comment Windows 7 hangs on black screen for a while after log in
You're right. I tried doing a clean boot, disabled all services, then enabled them few at a time. As soon as I started the "Workstation" service, it started hanging again. Turns out it was because I had some network drives mapped to my file server, but I'm not connected to it at the moment (switch broke down). So I guess windows was trying really hard to connect to the shared folders with an insanely long timeout. I disconnected the network drives and all is fine now. I'll have to look into the display mode problems though, hope it gets fixed when I reinstall the graphics driver.

comment how do people recover data from ram?
But if you boot the computer with the ram, wouldn't that erase everything on it during POST?
