It all started a few days ago, the wife's computer starter to boot and went to a black screen right after the starting windows logo appeared. I used the repair disk and did a restore to a date before a critical update. Everything worked for a day and same thing. After doing the restore I turned off windows update, system worked for 2 days then same thing. Always goes to black screen at the same place.
Now it has happened again but the repair disk will start then go to black, or a blue screen that says a error has occurred. I can not get the repair disk to start. I using the windows 7 disk that came with the computer and it is a 50/50 chance it will work. When I tried doing a restore it tells me that it will not run in safe mode. I put the hard drive in my computer and did error check, no errors found.
windows 7 64 bit
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 motherboard
geforce GTS 250 video card
WD 1TB hard drive wd10eaos-00l5b1
I did swap memory and a video card, same problem.
Also there is a 2nd hard drive with windows backups, not sure how to use these when it won't boot
What can I try next?
