I recently moved and had not started my computer for about six months. When I did, it came up to the password screen and I couldn't remember my password at the time. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, The PC rebooted itself and now it won't load windows at all.
I couldn't remember my bios password either, so I removed the CMOS battery and jumper, and that cleared it, so I can now get into the bios. I have also reseated all cables. I have a SATA hard drive.
When I try to boot my PC, it gets stuck on the Microsoft screen with a running bar toward the bottom that just keeps running. I've left it on for over 24 hours with no change. During this time, my power button blinks as if it is in hibernation mode. If I launch windows repair, I get the same result. Same for Last known configuration. I cannot boot into safe mode. It says Loading Windows but nothing happens. The difference here though, is that the power button stays solid and the monitor does not go to sleep. I'm not sure how long I have let it stay on trying to run safe mode in the past, but currently, it's been sitting there for over an hour (though the screen is just black now).
I had a virus on this PC last year, but that issue had been resolved, and I had been using it for about six months with no problem before I moved. The computer did not come with a boot/recovery disk.
Any help would be welcome. Thank you very much.
