Hi. I have an Asus computer. I did a clean installation of windows 7. It ran great for 3 weeks. Did all the updates. Installed Microsoft office 2010 and mcafee total protection. Also installed driver for gigabyte gv-r970c-2gd rev:1.0 graphics card. Worked great. One day the hdmi monitor was frozen and had weird lines through it. Restarted pc and it won't boot. Tried to boot safe mode. Won't boot. Read all kinds of forums from other ppl having similar problems and tried a few of thier solutions. Here's what I've tried.
Removed gigabyte graphics card. Now no monitor connection. Solution: removed cmos battery for ten sec to get mother board video driver to work and plugged hdmi into mother board port. Success.
Still won't boot. Tried recovery repair options. Could not automatically repair start up.
Tried to fix Mbr in command prompt. Compleated succesfully. Still won't boot.
Tried to fix the bcd. Compleated successfully. Won't boot.
Tried to back up and rewrite bcd. Compleated successfully. Wont boot.
I have the windows installation disk. Tried to repair from it. No luck.
Put installation disk back in. It is now stuck at press any key to boot from cd or DVD.
Need help! Thanks!

Hi,
 
Can you turn on your computer and tap the F8 Key before Windows starts? (Make sure there's no CD/DVD in the optical drive.) This will open the Advanced Boot Options menu. Use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (advanced). If that fails, please enter the Advanced Boot Options menu again and select Enable low-resolution video (640×480) (also try the Disable Driver Signature Enforcement option if low-resolution mode fails).

 

Regards,

bwv848

Same result for all three options. Microsoft corp with loading bar shows up for a bit. Then black screen for a min. Then black screan with movable pointer for a bit. Then pc restarts itself again and goes to windows error recovery screen.

I have a pic from earlier today from the system restore. Is this the one you want?
Also I was going to post it right now but I can't figure out how to get it from my iPhone album to here. I'm replying from my phone as well. I copied the pic but won't give me an option here to past?

Right now I put the installation disk back in. It finally decided to boot from it. It loaded the files and is now at a windows 7 install windows screen. Took like 15 mins. Should I just click install now or repair computer which should allow me access to command prompt. I have no problem reinstalling but I would love to know why this happened and if I did something wrong so it doesn't happen again. All my personal and important stuff is already backed up on an external hard drive from 3 weeks ago when I did the clean install. Please advise. Thanks!

I'm am in the reply to this topic box but there is nothing on the lower right or anywhere for more options. Normally if it's in my email I have to copy and past but that's not working here?

No one really knows what happened, and even if there's a solution to your problem, it may not necessarily reveal what the original problem was in the first place. If I were you, I'd just reinstall Windows — it's the fastest and easiest way out, especially when you have backups.
