Starting a few weeks ago I started having problems with my computer that progressively got worse. It started with a message along the lines of 'hardware change detected, please verify windows installation' I had installed a new gpu several weeks prior but had been using the computer with no problems up to that point. A while after that, textures would fail to load in games that I had played prior with no problems. Following this, games would crash entirely then win7 would not boot at all, just hang on with boot logo. I was able to boot once into safe mode after loading optimized bios defaults, resetting cmos and, reseating sata cables, I booted into safe mode and loaded windows from a repair point prior to the most recent update. I was able to boot and play games with no hitches. That night by computer auto updated again at the set time and after that I was having the same issues in games, then was no longer able to boot again, even in safe mode. 


This is the point I am at currently. I still have my win7 key but the disk is damaged. I've tried booting from flash drives, and other windows drives I have in the computer but those fail to do anything and it reverts back to trying to boot from C (win7 drive).
