Stumped!

I have just changed my computer case for a new one and have a problem.
All cables have been checked for looseness.
Only one sata drive is connected.
Memory works fine (checked with fresh memory)
Post screen fine.
goes into install windows then
When it starts the 'starting windows' screen it stalls.
Absolutely no movement from this screen.
Speaker gives a light buzzing sound now and again...
your help will be appreciated...
Runckle......

Try to run the start up repair, it should come up when you restart and the pc notices it can't start up normally. The repair will help and most likely solve it, if not do a reinstall from the disk. Hopefull some of the tecs here can give a better answer.

Thanks for that Alsisgevat but, I am in the install process or 'startup repair' process but cannot get any further than the 'starting windows' screen.

Runckle, it could also be a bad win7 disk. What kind of disk is this- home made or ready made? You could try installing from a usb drive.

If you have an XP or Vista disk or any kind of bootable disk you can check.

Not the install disc.

Hi Bill...
No it's a brand new disc.
That's not the problem here though.
What happens is when I want to boot my OS it goes straight to system recovery.
Then it gets as far as the 'Starting windows' screen and stalls.
This happens with or without the disc.
Thanks again...
