Windows 7: Windows 7 will not start

Windows 7 will not start

It appears I successfully installed Windows 7 but when the computer reboots the logo comes up and then the screen goes to a blue screen with dots in it. There is what looks like a large cursor in the upper left hand corner but the computer is frozen on this screen.

Any suggestions?

Try installing 7 again and post back.

Can you please also fill in your System Specs in User CP so we can see if there are any hardware problems.

Maybe this will help. Even if the symptoms are not the same, be sure that you followed all the instructions.

Thanks for the help.

Windows suddenly began working but then when I rebooted the blue screen again reappeared. Does this indicate a hardware problem such as with memory?

I have seen BSOD before but this screen is not the same. It is a screen with dots in it and a small square in the middle of the screen. I was wondering if it is some kind of video type problems. It is nothing like the blue screen you would get with Windows XP.

Just to test the computer I reloaded Windows XP and it works fine.

Could be ram. Windows 7 takes more than XP. What do you have 2gb?
