Can anyone help me please. This happen after I installed harddisk and cd drive. I cannot boot the computer and it freeze to this screen below. I didn't find any blue screen of dead.
I have tried to go to the bios and boot first from the cd room but it came to this similar screen below again.
But when I put the harddisk and the cd drive and installed to another computer, the windows can boot succesfully.





We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows
Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Start Windows Normally

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Seconds until Windows starts: 0


thanks a lot for taking the time to help.

Recheck your cable connections, if any are ribbon style some can be turned upside down. Also check to see that you have not inadvertently bent any pins in the connectors.
