Hey everyone. I just built a new computer and I can't get windows 7 to startup. Every time I start up the computer, it blue screens and restarts. Ive tried startup repair and all that jazz, nothing has worked for me. Does anyone know whats wrong? Or do i have to reinstall windows?

Here is the bluescreen. Sorry about the play button and bad picture quality. The blue screen comes up for half a second so i had to take a video and than take a screenshot to get a picture of it.

The error you are seeing is thee computer isn't recognizing the Bootable Device or STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976

Check to see if thee hard drive is recognize in the BIOS Check all connection to the hard drive may sure it has power.

The hard drive has power, thats for sure. About the BIOS thing, are you asking if the hard drive shows up in the BIOS? (By the way im not that experienced with computers)

Yes does it show up in the POST screen or the BIOS boot Order.

Press F2 or Del Key

On the menu screen find the boot process or boot order

the first boot is Hard Drive

I will have to get your mother board information for more correct direction but look around the BIOS but dont save any changes

Is this the first computer you built and is this your first time with the error.

Hi again

Thank you for the information

Was there any errors on the system repair when you did that. Did It just started to display this error yesterday

I see you have a SATA hard drive from the motherboard information. Commonly the motherboard does this automatically but some times it a setting in the BIOS that will cause this error This issue occurs if the disk driver in Windows 7 and Windows Vista is disabled. This driver must be enabled before you change the SATA/RAID mode of the boot drive. See is it the setting of ACHI mode not being turn on. Also this error can occurred by a bad SATA cable.

If that doesn't work please run a hard drive Diagnostics test to find if it just a bad drive http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 by the manufacturer brand name

hope that helps

All startup repair said was that it couldnt fix the problem...and i tried switching it around in the BIOS but each setting i clicked on still made it crash. I can try another SATA cable, and i'll tell you what happens. I know the drive isnt bad because i used this drive for an older computer, so when i built my new one, i used this hard drive, hoping it would still work (because it had all my data on it)
