Windows 7: ASUS M5A99FX Motherboard - Windows not booting

ASUS M5A99FX Motherboard - Windows not booting

I recently purchased a new motherboard, ASUS M5A99FX, and after setting everything up, Wondows 7 would not load. The exact message is, "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Windows recommends that I run the Startup Repair, and I have tried that. However, my mouse and keyboard become unusable in the process and thus, I can do nothing. I am unfamiliar with this type of bios as my old motherboard was extremely basic. Old motherboard is listed under my computer specs as I do not want to take the time to update them from my phone.

hi sounds like you did not do a fresh install when putting new motherboard in. sometimes doing a startup repair will get it working. the best option is doing a fresh install when changing to a different motherboard.
