cant start windows 7 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Well first off... If this goes to hell, do you have a way of getting your files off the OS drive?

As crazy and painful as this will sound.. try reseating your RAM and GPU ... Don't reseat the CPU just yet. If you have a block on your GPU then just reseat the RAM at the very least. There's black magic with that stuff sometimes

And also, can you get a BSOD Error code for us?

since it boots into safe mode, i can just move all the files from my C drive to a secondary drive and re-install OS... as a last resort. I will try the reseating and get back to you, thanks

That doesn't mean anything. A lose connection can cause lots of odd problems. Just check those connections and see if that fixes it

There's no need for that. Go through the simple trouble shooting ideas and then reformat if nothing else works

This is the question to focus on first.
And it would be helpful if you would fill out your system components and specs.

woot i figured it out.
I managed to take a picture of the crash screen and googled the error, it was the graphic driver's fault. I think it crashed because it got confused since there r no fans on the gpu anymore. I cleaned out the driver and now it boots fine, gonna reinstall now and see if i get the same error.

Doh! I think I remember reading a similar problem about this a few weeks ago, here. This has gone beyond me, now. Sorry.
