Help with Windows Loading.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
About a month ago I built my computer and all was fine. I have a 320GB SATA Seagate HDD. Now ever since my stupid mother went to turn off my computer Windows wont boot. What happens is that the Windows loading screen comes up and then the progress bar stops at three runs. I did fix it by booting the XP CD and going into repair mode. In there I fixed the MBR by doing 'fixmbr' then I fixed the boot by doing 'fixboot' and then I finished it off with 'chkdsk'. I rebooted it and it was fine. Last night I turned it off PROPERLY and then today I boot it up and it does the same thing. Could my Hard Drive be dying? Right now I'm repairing Windows (its recopying all the system files) Safe mode boots fine. What do I do now? I have another HDD I can copy all my Videos, Downloads, Music, Photos and such to, but I don't want to reinstall Windows (if I have to) and reinstall ALL my drivers and programs.

So far you have gone through the troubleshooting steps that I would have. I was going to suggest testing your RAM by booting with each individual stick but then I read your post again and saw "Safe mode boots fine" so I think that it has to be a driver or something that loading incorrectly. You could run memtest for the "fun of it" or reinstall your graphics drivers. I would start backing up your data to the other hard drive just to be safe.

Right now, its at the WIndows Installation screen reinstalling all nessisary Windows drivers, and files. So we'll see what happens then. If not then time to back up, and reinstall.

Anyway. I need to activate Windows now, WHEN IT WAS ALREADY ACTIVATED. Gotta call them now, and go through that hell.
