Windows 7: freezing at start up

freezing at start up

Windows 7 freezes at start up. When i can get into system repair it asks for my hard disk drivers. Won't boot from DVD or USB. From my research I think it might be motherboard, Asus P5P800.......but not sure?

Welcome to SF!

First, how long has this been going on?

It almost sounds as if this may be a hard drive problem, though it's just a bit early. Try testing your drive with the bootable version of SeaTools: | Seagate

Now where does this problem occur? What stage in bootup?

I ran windows 7 for about 2 months then it froze and now won't boot, it did boot once but shut down after 30 min. I took the HD and hooked it to my laptop and all the files are there

and I also hooked a new HD to my PC.....same problem won't boot.
When I try to boot from USB I get the following
File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000e
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

Is there any OS installed on the USB drive? If not, that explains the error.

Try creating a repair disc, or USB drive. If you have a Windows 7 DVD, you can use that instead.

System Repair Disc - Create

Boot from that, and try running a startup repair.

Try backing up the data on your hard drive, and then doing a custom install.
