It has some sort of aids I believe.
On Wednesday last week I came home from work, turned it on and walked away for 15 mins while I put the kids to bed etc. I come back and it's sitting on the windows update screen "preparing updates, please do not turn off your computer"
I thought, huh, that's weird so I ate my dinner while I waited and still nothing happened. I gave up and rebooted, it goes back to windows update, somethine like "update failed, reverting changes" which again sits there forever and doesn't change.
I fucked around for a while getting into safe mode for a while to see if I could figure out wtf was going on but couldn't find anything obvious. Eventually I got the shits and resorted to the windows 7 install disc to do a "repair" which it couldn't, neither could it do a rollback to any of the previous entries.
I ended up doing a full reinstall of windows, not a huge deal as I have an SDD and with ninite.com
and google sync I can get back up and running like nothing happened in an hour or 2.
I do all that and it works fine for that night. I boot up the next morning and on first boot it loads into windows like nothing happened...until I click on chrome or any application, it just doesn't nothing, I can move my mouse around windows the desktop, highlight and select things and see the interaction highlights happening, but nothing loads, no matter how long I leave it.
I rebooted and things seemed fine, but almost every time I turn on my PC I have to load it once and reboot it with the same problem, but on top of that chrome seems very slow and unresponsive fairly frequently.
I have my page file and desktop etc mapped to a traditional HDD with windows and all my applications on an SSD. This is my 3rd (or maybe 4th? I've lost count) SSD, I've had previous ones flat out die on me under warranty and replaced which is where I'm at now with this OCZ agility 3 (the previous 2 were Vertex 2s)
If it's the SSD again I'm done with them, the previous ones all lasted about 3 months and this current one is about that old now so that's why I suspect it may be that. Last resort I have with it is a complete reformat and windows install.
So has anyone got any ideas to the cause? or avenues of investigation?
