Windows 7: Windows 7 unable to get past "Starting Windows" screen

Windows 7 unable to get past "Starting Windows" screen

I'm using a dell inspiron 1440 laptop, recently replaced my internal hard drive with a new solid state drive. It was working fine until today when I tried to boot my laptop up, and it gave me a BSOD before reaching the "Starting Windows" screen. Subsequent attempts at selecting the Startup repair and start windows normally options only gave me "failed to repair", and the windows logo getting stuck respectively. Safe mode cannot be started. However, when I tried to launch startup repair from my win 7 installation disk, I found that my HDD is not detected by my laptop. Subsequently, my laptop has also told me to reseat my hard drive. I reseated it a few times, but it did not solve the problem. Diagnostics ran on my laptop did not identify any problems. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Try checking the SATA setting in your BIOS. Make sure it is set to AHCI.

Do you still have the old mechanical hard drive? What happens if you install that?

If the spinner is recognized then it may be that the SSD has failed.
