Windows 7: Boot-Up Problem

Windows 7 64 bit HP
Boot-Up Problem

I recently changed an original motherboard that was defective on my HP PC with a "Better" GIGABYTE Model G41MT-S2PT MB. Installed Windows 7 HP from Scratch with 8GB Corsair DDR 3 1600 Ram. Worked fine for about 2 weeks.........
All of a sudden while browsing on the internet ......The PC shut down (turned off by itself)......
Now the PC while trying to boot up .......I THINK it does not see the OS......
BTW the drive does spin.....
What can be the cause of this?
Thanks for your help in advance

Is the HD detected in BIOS setup?

Run the maker's HD Diagnostic to check the HD condition.

Boot the Repair CD or DVD provided in Step 5 of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to see if it finds anything to repair when you click Repair My Computer on second screen.

If not work through the steps from top.

Boot-Up Problem

Now when I turn on the PC the following appears..............

Windows Resume Loader

The last attempt to resume the system from its previous location failed.
Attempt to resume again?
(use the arrow keys to highlight your choice)

Choices: Continue with system resume or
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu

At this point I try to select a choice but it won't let me using the arrow keys ( arrow keys do not respond nor the enter key)
