    My TX2500z has been freezing at boot randomly. This happened even before I undervolted it.

    It freezes at the screen right before the Vista loading screen where the cursor (looks like this -> _ ) blinks at the top left part of the screen.


    Except I notice the cursor stops blinking and is just there frozen.


    Any comments?

    so before the undervolting, and you did a clean install (i think)...

    and it freezes...

    Driver issue maybe? or a corrupt start up service/program maybe?

    did u try chkdsk /f at the command prompt?

    Correct, before the undervolting and after clean win install.

    It freezes like one time out of 35 times i turn my computer on. (roughly)

    I havent done a chkdsk, i will do that this weekend, I'm also gonna do a clean install. There has been a lot of partitioning/OS installations & uninstalling /Random software isntalled and uninstalled done.


    It's hard to replicate the problem to try to find out what it is.

    maybe one of those procedures had an effect in making a small problem bigger (like a botched uninstall)?

    and good luck in fixing it Bernok.

    Uninstalls don't cause freezing at bootup (botched or not). I do think something may have happened when you were constantly partitioning. I say do some diagnostics of your own.

    Sorry if these sound obvious, some people don't know.
    Try: CCleaner and ultimate defrag. Maybe you have bunch of crap files lodged somewhere.

    ?

    No clue what you mean, probably missing a obvious reference.

    Going a bit off topic, but it's a popular "song" to be played, preferably when a leader/hero emerges to save the day.

    Searching on youtube should provide a bit more detail.

    @Bernok-Did the CCleaner and Defragging work? Or was/is it too early to say?

    Have you checked your RAM? Any device connected? (keyboard, mouse, dvd in the drive, ...)
    Vista has some sort of a boot log/event protocol, maybe there's the failure listed.
