PC won't boot from harddrive

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My computer was working fine all day and I shut it down over night. I turn it on today and it won't boot from the harddrive. I've tried reinstalling windows, and using windows recovery counsel to repair the boot section. Any ideas on how to get it to boot. The hard drive is found in my Bios, and when I try to reinstall windows it finds the installed windows.

Check the boot order in the bios. Make sure the hard drive is first.

It is first and i have nothing else enable to boot except for my dvd drive. The computer just keeps restarting. If I put the windows cd in it says press any key to boot from cd. if i press something it loads into the cd. If I don't press any key it restarts.

I tried a reinstall and repair, they both get through the windows blue screen and say your computer will restart in 15, 14.....etc and then it restarts my pc. then after it shows the mobo info and all that and then it just keeps restarting after the same screen.

EDIT* I also had a serperate parsion left on my harddrive. I tried installing windows on that extra partion, and after all that stuff everything happens the same way as posted above.
