I am currently running windows 7 ultimate on my computer, it has the min requirements but recently it has been faulty. When i boot up my computer it sometimes takes up to 10 minutes. Right now, i cannot even get onto my windows. Since my computer has Xp and Windows 7, Xp is working fine, but when i click on windows 7 it says "starting now" with the windows flag, but does not actually load me on (after waiting 40 minutes).
When it did actually log me on before all this happened, i got a blue screen of death, so it restarted my computer and did a chkdisk 5 times and will not boot up now.
At one stage when i turned the power on it booted for 2 seconds and stopped.
I have formatted my computer and re installed windows 7, still same problem. possibly it is my power supply so i am thinking i might get a new one, but if it isn't my power supply i don't want to waste money.
Please help.
Regards 2k3wl4skool.

FWIW: I would think that a PSU problem...impacts both O/S installs.

Have you run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic?

What "minimum requirements" does your system reflect?

It would help if we knew the content reflected in the BSOD you received.

You have a valid license for Win7 Ultimate?
