laptop hangs on windows boot, gpu problem?
I have a MSI gt660-003us laptop, core i7 740, 6gb ram, running windows 7 home premium etc etc.
Occasionally on boot up it would hang with a backlit black screen after the windows boot logo, sometimes while i'm playing games (only Heroes of Newerth though, not more demanding games like Crysis or Sc2). About 2 weeks ago it ALWAYS hang on boot, so i reformatted to factory settings, thinking that i screwed up the drivers when i was updating. But even after that, it still hangs. On safe mode it boots fine.
I discovered recently though that it stays on that black screen for about 5 minutes, then boots fine, previously i thought it completely freezes.
I would like some opinions on what the issues might be (driver or hardware failure) before i send it in for repairs, it's still under warranty.
I swear msi drivers are horrible. T__T
