Hello, just signed up to ask you guys for some help. A few months back I bought a new laptop and several weeks later I installed an SSD and moved the HDD to the CD-ROM slot (don't know if this has anything to do with my problems, but I'll just give you the complete story). The last month or so I'm having some difficulties.. When I first booted my laptop it would startup in seconds, but now, after the Windows welcome and loading screen I get a black screen before seeing the desktop. This takes several seconds, sometimes longer than other. My second problem is that windows freezes/crashes (the screen freezes and I can't do anything). This happens once or twice a week, thought it was random, but just now it happened when I unplugged my external usb soundcard (maybe the previous times it had the same cause, I can't remember). So I looked at my event viewer and it shows a lot of errors, don't know if it relates, but I'll post a screen of the errors from around the time it froze. Edit: You can see that error 1, 3, 11, 1001, 7038 and 7000 all happen when booting.
