no longer boots into windows?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So about 4-5 days ago my computer was up and folding like normal, and I was listening to some music and all of a sudden the music froze and a crazy high pitch noise was coming out of the speakers. So I tried to ctl+alt+dlt, to no avail, so then I just restarted. Upon restarting, my computer booted fine and made it to the win7 screen where the window starts doing its thing and then freezes. It does this every time I try to get into windows. Safe mode doesn't work either.

So began the troubleshooting. I reset cmos, nothing. I tried switching out the ram, nothing. So basically I'm thinking it's either the hdd going bad, I have a virus (unlikely as all I do on this rig is fold), or windows is corrupt.

I'm going home this weekend for spring break and I'll pick up the win7 cd to try a fresh install. Any thing I should try troubleshooting before hand?

thanks in advance,
BeazZzZzZz

Try a differant HDD if you got one available that has something bootable on it?
You could put linux on a usb and try booting from the usb which might help narrow down if its the HDD failing/corrupted or if its a differant issue?
