Windows 7: Can't restore my comptuer from norton ghost, can't load up windows.

Can't restore my comptuer from norton ghost, can't load up windows.

I recently bought a new computer case to replace my old one since it was breaking. I bought the case and put everything into it. After I went through that painful process I noticed that door on the case was broken and I had to take everything out and return it and get a non broken one.

So I put everything back in and the computer loaded fine and I had it on for at least 3 to 4 hours(just running) and it was all fine. The next day I came and loaded my computer up it would take like 20mins to get into windows 15mins to load up the desktop icons.

I ran the seagate hardrive checker and it came back with that my harddrive was broken. I opened the case and checked the connections and plugged the harddrive into a different sata port in the motherboard.

Everything seemed to work I ran the seagate tool multiple times and it passed it every single time as opposed of failing it everytime before my little fix.

Because of this I had to load up windows from the windows 7 dvd as my boot was corrupted and I had to use the bootsec command to get that back.

After that everything worked fine(it did seem slower) but it worked.

Then yesterday I turned on my computer and walked away. When I came back it seemed like my computer restarted itself or went into sleep mode but whatever it did I could not get back into windows.

Now my computer is really messed up. Everytime I try to load into windows I get something like "bootdisk failed please insert cd".

I try to load up the windows dvd and it takes forever. I get into the screen where the menu options are but all I see is my mouse. I don't actually see the menu. I don't know if it is just exteremly slow or what.

So I thought ok I will use one my backups(norton ghost) and start from that point maybe a few weeks back. I pop in the norton ghost book it from the dvd and it starts to load and it takes forever.

It will get past the "loading files part" and get to the screen where it looks like windows 7 would be loading. It just hangs on this one and then I get a blue screen saying that it prevented my computer from getting any damage.

It gives many different thing why it could happen. Not enough storage space, something about the bios setting and etc.

So I am not sure what to do. Is it my harddrive? Or maybe I messed my motherboard up I don't know.
