*PROBLEM* "Integrated Audio" is causing Windows 7 to FREEZE at start-up!
Let's jump right on this! Yesterday, I purchased and made it through the installation of Windows 7 UNTIL I reached the "Starting Windows" screen. Here, the logo begins to show, but then freezes... So then I said a few obscenities, and began to tinker around in my BIOS.... after a few hours of irritating work, I finally was able to get Windows 7 to flawlessly start by toggling off the "Integrated Audio" option in my BIOS. When I restarted my computer and toggled it back on, Windows 7 froze again at the boot screen. So basically, my problem is with "integrated audio." How do I FIX THIS???!!! And FYI: I have a Dell Dimension E521
Thanks in advance for all the help that I know this community will bring me.
