I have a Gateway GM 5664 desktop PC running Windows 7.
AMD Phenom 9600 quad core processor
3584 MB Ram
Bios Version P01-A2, release 12/10/2009
Recently after performing a Windows update and restarting the computer I'm getting the screen where it says "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Then it presents two options:
Launch startup repair
Start Windows normally
When I choose either option the computer will shut off after about 5 seconds. It does this every time.
Here are some things I've tried thus far:
I tried changing the boot order and using a Windows startup repair disc and it appeared to load but then the same message above would come up and the pc would shut off.
I checked inside and all the fans are working and everything seems to be secure.
Some system spec I can access before getting the screen with the windows failed to start message. Readings after about 10 min of computer being on.
CPU temp: 50c
System temp: 41c
CPU fan speed: 1700 rpm
System fan speed: 1000 rpm
Cpu core: 1.248 V
Note I did replace the motherboard about a year ago but I haven't used this computer very often.
Anyone have some idea on what I can do to get it to work?
Thanks in advance.
