Windows 7: Windows 7 ultimate x64 suddenly won't boot, even in safe modes.

Windows 7 ultimate x64 suddenly won't boot, even in safe modes.

Woke up this morning, turned on my pc after using it the previous night, went downstairs came back up to find my computer rebooting itself, thought "that's odd", left it a few minutes thinking it might have been a windows update or something. It got to the windows logo, then went to a black screen with the loading mouse symbol.

Restarted the system a bunch of times, tried the safe modes with no luck. Tried recovery, no luck. Tried to repair from windows 7 installation disk, again no luck.

Frustrating as hell as it's a clean install (beginning of the week) after having issues previously with blue screens.

Starting to thinking i might be hardware related, even though the system was only bought beginning of august :/.

Could also just be the disk i've got for windows...

Any help would be appreciated.

From what your describing, it would be my guess that your hard drive has become corrupted or is crashing or crashed. Keep trying to load up OS and if your successful then try this..... Check your hard disk for errors

System spec's could also be very helpful. I does indeed sound like the boot drive is the first place you should target.

It doesn't look like im going to be able to get windows to boot up... any other suggestions? or am i going to have to just reinstall :/?

I guess i could just reinstall windows and do that once it's booting again?

But i would rather that be a last case scenario.

OK, that begs the question, where did you get your product code from?
Seeing the problems you are having I wouldn't trust that install media. If you have a legal product code/license that you paid for, you can use a borrowed DVD to do the install. If its not the correct version you can make it a universal disk.

The OS i've got has worked and is still working for other people, so im pretty sure it's not that, or at least entirely.

Is there anything else that could cause what's happening?

Is there a way to check if my hard disk is failing without having to have my system boot properly?

So you're using an illegal pirated version of Windows 7 and looking for help?
If so you'll get no help from me.
