Hi guys,

I've got a MSI GX660R Laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I've recently been having a really annoying problem; everytime I switch on my laptop in the mornings, it hangs on the welcome screen and I have to force it to shut down and then power on again to get it working.

I don't know if this is a software or hardware problem.

Any ideas? Thanks

Thank you for such clear instructions John, much appreciated.
