I have an ASUS (not sure which model) that has Windows Vista Home (Premium I think, but possibly Basic). I have had some issues recently with my computer not keeping the BIOS settings when it restarted and I had to keep changing the HD priorities so it booted from the right one. The clock was always off after this as well. So, I decided to replace the CMOS battery.
After I changed the battery and started up the computer, I got a message that Windows couldn't start and it gave me the option to try again, normally or in safe mode, etc. It also said, if it wasn't the first time it happened to use my recovery disk and use it to repair windows. If I try to start windows normally, the computer restarts and then the same message comes up. If I try safe mode, it shows the computer loading up the windows components, but then also restarts and goes back to the same error screen.
When I use my recovery disk to try and repair it, it starts loading up the disk and when it gets to 100%, I get the dreaded blue screen. This is before I have any opportunity to make any selections or anything.
I've read about changing some Sata RAID setting after a google search, but I haven't been able to find that in my BIOS.
Anyone have any idea?
