Can't boot windows :(

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
I reformatted my computer yesterday because it was constantly locking up. So today it begun to lock up again and now when I try to boot into windows I get an error saying "the boot section failed because a required device is inaccessible" I've also attempted to use the repair tool on the windows 7 DVD and it says it can't fix it. I'm fine with reinstalling win 7 but I don't want to do it everyday.
Thanks for te help xD

I don't know if this will work or has anything to do with it but you could try to reset the CMOS pin?

is your boot drive your ssd?
try updating the firmware on it, else it sounds like poor hdd health to me.
my boot drive is an old samsung hdd and it is slowly dying and locks up from time to time during heavy load.

= Defective drive. No doubt, especially since it reoccurs after reformatting (and I assume repartitioning) the drive.

Updated the SSD firmware if it's possible. Also use a different SATA cable and even port incase either of those are jacked up.


I assume you did a full reformat and not just a quick as well.
