Need help! Windows is crashing and restarting on splash screen

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
so basically this is my mums desktop PC. it had two WD HDD in RAID0 and one blew up and the computer was fine once i took that out. about 6 months down the line the computer start to take longer and longer to load and boot stuff. i guessed this was the other HHD that was failing/corrupt.

so about a week ago i bought a new SSD for the computer. the computer worked perfectly for that week. my mum turned on the computer this morning and windows loads and get to the splash screen then crashed and restarts. it does this over and over again. it did this before but i thought it was windows timeing its self out because the old HDD was failing.

what could be the problem? what is the broken part in the machine
has anyone else had this problem before?

thanks for the help

Ollie

Reformat. Ensure the Drive that the OS is being installed on it set to bumber 1 boot priority within the boot priority menu. My OS installed on the raid but the boot files are on my SSD. If i remove the SSD or format, my pc can also not boot. Setting boot priority will prevent this.

Good Luck

Woah...
Before you re-format just after the BIOS screen press F8 repeatedly until you get the advanced boot options-
1.Repair my Computer
2.Pick the language etc and your Win7 installation
3.Once you get to the recovery console click start up repair.
You may need to run this up to three times.
4.If it still does not work click command prompt
Try these
bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr.

Then try a re-install if it fails.

If you can't get it via F8 (you should be able to though) put the Windows 7 install disc in and under install click repair install (or something similar to that,sorry,its been a while since I used it).
