Pi 3 freezing after start up

Sat Dec 03, 2016 3:33 pm

I have a raspberry pi 3, after the pi has started up the screen will "freeze" and the pi won't appear to take any input from the mouse and keyboard.
Does anyone have any ideas of what may be happening and how to fix this?
Thanks

How far does the boot process go...do you get to a desktop? What OS are you using?
Mine occasionally freezes for some seconds but then goes back to normal behavior...no idea of what is causing it. How long do you wait?

When you upgraded your RPi did you upgrade the Power Supply?

An RPi 3 requires more power than other models. Maybe when the system starts running it finds it cannot supply enough power to the USB devices?

The screen will freeze when the desktop screen appears.
I tend to wait up to 15 minutes and the screen still stays "frozen".
The OS is raspain.
I am using the power supply that was supplied with the RPi. Would getting a new supply work?
Thanks

The RPi has not been working since an unsuccessful attempt to attach the camera.
