Today I opened up my computer to check that I met the requirements for a new hardware upgrade I am planning, but haven't implemented yet. I put in a POST beep speaker I had been meaning to install which had been sitting around on my desk for the past month. When I turned the computer on it would get stuck at the windows loading screen.
I tried taking out the POST beep speaker, but that didn't change anything, although I didn't expect it to.
I tried using the system repair tool and I forget which features I used, but I remember thinking I either needed an expert to go further or that it found nothing.
I tried starting in safe mode and last known good configuration and neither would start.
I checked my bios boot settings, the hard drive is the first thing to boot up and as of now is the only thing the PC is allowed to boot from.
I unhooked every non-essential peripheral from my computer.
