Guys, need some help here.
My motherboard died on me, and so I had to change it together with the processor and RAM as there were no socket 775 motherboards available locally. However, Win 7 blue screens every time on start up, but very briefly, so I can't see the error message.
Win 7 repair then kicks in, but finds nothing wrong, so it goes round and round like that ad infinitum.
All the repair methods I have found require that you work within windows, which is patently stupid if you want to repair because you can't get windows to work - it's a bit like trying to open a box with a tool that's inside it!
I tried a new install, which has backed up my old Windows as Windows.old, and it goes though all the paces, but then refuses to accept the activation code.
I am now stuck with a non functioning PC, and am scared to add anything in the future in case of this type of thing.
What can I do to recover the old Windows installation?
