Forever in startup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Normally I would search, but I'm on mobile and that would take forever.

So, one day my PC just froze so I rebooted and it froze after a few minutes. Kept doing this so I left it alone. Now it continues to get to the Starting Windows screen and just freezes then reboots on it's own. One time it asked me to do system recovery and i did but it just restarted on it's own and still freezes and restarts at Starting Windows screen.

So, I inserted the Windows 7 disc hoping to re install, but when I choose to boot from DVD it says loading files then goes to the Windows Start up screen and freezes then eventually reboots.

Any suggestions on what to do to be able to re install Windows? Thanks.

One pretty annoyingly tedious(but the only way I can think of) is having a sorking computer burn an os disk. Linux for instance. Then boot from that and reformat your hdd. Or at least the parition windows is at. Do note that you can indeed make live usbs and boot from that too.

There might be better tools for the job. But at a working computer it would only take half an hour (if that much) to set up.

I haven't really studied the inner workings of windows. But to me it seems like there is some corrupted data in the boot sequence post bootloader. The only case where I have encountered this before is from killing the power abrubtly. Anyhow I wish you good luck!

    If the Windows installation disc won't load either, perhaps you have faulty RAM.  Just to be sure, try unplugging all your disk drives except for the DVD drive, and try booting the Windows installation disc again.  If it fails, I recommend burning a copy of MemTest86+ and booting it to see if your RAM is faulty.
