it's a win7 dual boot. it just gives me the orange background when booting and nothing else. in safe mode however it boots normal but very slow/freezes when i try to do anything. i don't know how to go about it, when i live run it from usb it works like magic and very fast, way faster than windows 7;

Try to install proprietary drivers if you can access System settings -> Additional Drivers. Then reboot.
