I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my X86 Acer 5100 laptop due to it being old and slow. Anyway the clean install went well until I started to get a boot that would stop at the Acer splash screen. I ran a lot of diagnostics to see what the problem might be including the RAM, Hard Disk, Drivers and probably a couple of other things. I finally narrowed it down to this Lexar x64 Flash Drive that I had used to back up my files with. It seemed that when I would leave it in during some of the boots, not all, I would get the stoppage at the Acer screen. When I removed it and booted after I had killed the power there would be a regular boot. Now I should say that I tried pulling the battery also and that really didn't solve anything. Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem or has had it happen to them? I didn't bother re-setting the CMOS. It's only the x64 byte Lexar drive that does it when I leave it in.
