Windows 7: New PC wont load


13 Jul 2011   #51

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

I would read the motherboard manual and do a reset (usually involves moving a jumper on the motherboard). Then, I would install one RAM module and your video card (if you don't have onboard video). Boot and see if the BIOS starts. Load failsafe defaults, then reboot. Enter BIOS to verify it works. Shutdown. Install the other RAM module, boot and verify you can enter the BIOS. Shutdown. Connect only your DVD, then start the computer. Verify you can boot and you get a message about a missing OS/media/etc. Shut down and connect the hard drive, and repeat the above actions.

Post your results.

In the meantime, verify the RAM you bought is compatible with your motherboard. Also check for any BIOS updates, and if you find one, download it to a flash drive and follow the BIOS update instructions in the motherboard manual.

Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

It was the very first step I gave you in a list of steps given that resolve thousands of similar cases.

Instead of replying to the steps or even asking questions how to do them, you smarted off to me about how I "don't listen."

As a result you flounder around the fix which would have happened days ago if you'd cooperated.

Guys I believe his BIOS is UEFI. I'm not familiar with that. Is there any special procedure required that differs from the way one would install an OS with a conventional BIOS?

No, only when trying to delete the BIOS password, removing the battery will not reset password.

OK, I didn't think so, but I didn't know and wanted to make sure.
