Freeze on startup


Recommended Posts

I have Speccy set to display CPU average Temp on start-up but I've noticed every time my PC is restarted that the number displayed in the taskbar is frozen in place? & I have to open Speccy & minimize it each time is order for it to display properly.

Use Windows Disk Management to observe the Disk numbers allocated to each physical disk that is connected via SATA.

You may find, as I have found, that stupid windows RE-allocates the numbers after a RE-start in a different order to what they were upon Start-up,

and some programs malfunction in this situation.

Perhaps this causes grief to Speccy.


Microsoft seem to understand IDE,

SATA is something else - they explain the problem in a technical note as being due to "the order of enumeration",

which means they do not have a clue on how to fix it.

confirmed here as well. (Win8.1u1 Pro 64bit)

set Speccy to show CPU temp at startup, doesn't change until you go into Speccy, re-minimise and then behaves as expected.

Backup now & backup often.
