Windows won't boot...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yesterday on my older computer, windows was booting fine, but today, it fills the progress bar (when loading in bios), but the hangs and reboots. Then the bios takes ages to load my drives ect. I'm currently in Ubuntu and its working fine so the HDD hasn't failed for sure.

I can't understand why it would fail suddenly...it doesnt make sense...

Mind you, I did reset suddenly when Ubuntu was loading but I don't think that should make a difference.

Any ideas?

firstly i would acually turn the computer off and then unplug the power chord to your PSU. Dont ask why, but that has resolved some of my booting issues in the past.

If that dosent work, go into your BIOS and reset the Bios to the defult settings. After you did that, check back ok!

Good luck!
