Ok I have been having this problem now for the last month and it is driving me nuts.

Basically my computer will startup and POST bleeps fine, it takes about 5 mins however to move to the next screen and allow me to choose my OS, this being windows 7. Following one of these slow POST's windows will fail to boot hanging at the spinning orbs thing about halfway through. The only remedy to this is to let windows startup repair run through twice, once restoring my computer, then failing to find any problems and switching off. After this it will POST slowly, hang at the windows logo for about a minute then complete and I will be in windows 7. This will run fine but 50% of the time it will crash randomly at any given point could be 5 mins could be 50 hours :D

While I have had my computer running I have done every hardware test I can think of and they have all ran and completed fine. I even took it into my local computer shop, who have helped me many times before and they said they could not find anything wrong with the computer, it POST'd fine for them and ran windows absolutely fine for as long as they left it. They also did hardware checks and said absolutely nothing was wrong. The only thing they could suggest was maybe a bad external device I had at home or overheating.

After this test I used the computer at home, starting by just booting it with HDMI to my TV and the power, ran fine. After this I added each USB device I use (Mouse, Keyboard, USB dongle) at seperate startups and it worked fine. I am now back in Leicester where I am a student, and the problems are all back. I feel like I am on a hidden camera show or somthing lol. Cany anyone suggest what these problems may be, I will try any and all suggestions but there may be a delay in posting responses :D I am at my wits end here guys any help will be greatly appreciated.
