Ive been having issues with my pc for about 3 weeks now. Whenever I boot up from the hard drive it will either immediately reboot or get stuck on the black windows startup screen and no logo appears.
The same screen occurs when I try to boot up from the disk drive (and yes Im 100% sure the boot order is correct).
It started working a few days ago for a few boots so I checked the hard drive for errors and it came back completely clean. Ive also recently replaced the RAM and Im sure I have enough. Im just really stuck at this point and Im not sure what to do. Ill provide any information on request.

I'd blame the following:


Hard Disk ~ Make sure its fully functioning by placing your hands on HDD to feel vibration, make sure no beep, tick sound arises.


RAM ~ Try different RAM, place only one RAM on a different slot. 


BIOS & CMOS reset ~ Do it by removing the CMOS battery, plug the power cable, press power button for 30 secs to discharge static electricity then put CMOS battery in again power on. 


Bad drivers/software ~ Do you remember any drivers or software you installed last time the system was working properly? 


Tried booting in safe mode?

Please perform the following as the first step to help.


1. File > Save Snapshot. This will create a file called [hostname].speccy

Also as mentioned above are you able to boot successfully in safe mode without issues?
