( i am new to these forums, so bear with me in case i make a mistake or two )
I have recently had some quite serious problems with my system. I had the 41 kernel-power issue, due to an imcompatibility with my internet browser. After a while, it got worse, and when i turned my PC on, the ON light would almost instantly go away, as if it had stopped working. Then after a few moments it would suddenly come back to life and make the usual first BEEP, but it would just stop there, and my monitor would'nt even react to it. Then it would be luck based, whether or not it would load Windows. it did hoever, from this point always load the Packard bell startup screen, where i could enter Bios and such.
After a few minutes this morning, the computer was running fin, until suddenly a crash in IE. no big deal, as i was used to this, but when i tried to restart the computer, it turned itself off quickly, again and again...
After a long time of hopeless on/off'ing, it finally loaded up windows ( i suppose its actually loading the C: drive, as windows never ACTUALLY appeared ). Onstead of the ordinary Bios menu:
Start windows normally, safe mode blablabla, it came up with startup repair and start windows normally. i chose repair, fixed it, but none of the options had an impact on the startup. Finally, i decided "Whatever" and Told it to reinstall windows ( While backupping my files, that is ).
It seemed like a success, and when it finally finished, it came up with an error, saying that windows could'nt be installed to the drive. it then restarted, and i nervously waited. it then came with the message: Installation is starting sevices. (my translation )
Right after this, it would give me the message: Windows could not complete the installation. Restart The Installation to install Windows.
It has looped like this for a while now.
i decided not to turn it off in bios menu, as i would not benefit from it atm.
To Cut right to the chase: i need HELP installing windows. i WOULD PREFER if i could keep my data, but the alternative i can live with...
Before you say anything, the computer came with installed windows.
i have run RAM dianostics through a windows repair that i burned onto a disk.
Thank you for taking your time reading this post.
Intel Core i5
6gb. ddr3 RAM
nVidia geForce 460 GT
*No data regarding MOBO*
my tower has more than sufficient cooling, and i have not modified anything, except for an added ( clean ) HDD and a wireless internet card.
Again, Thank you for your Attention.
EDIT: I am currently not able to enter either Windows ( in safe mode or anything )
Or the original Startup repair which includes the install/uninstall tools.
(i am atleast not AWARE of any ways to open the installed repair )
EDIT - EDIT: I have acquired ADMIN CMD and a primitive version of windows EXPLORER, allowing me to open hidden folders, and backup more or less what i want to keep, to my Ext. Hard Drive.
According to my right click Options, i AM able to Format the Windows installation drive from here
( as far as i know ) however, i wont do it just yet, as i would like to hear your response(s) and perhaps i am making a huge mistake by doing it?
Thanks once more, for your Attention :P
