Windows 7: Computer not working after system restore. Help

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

I cannot answer that, but worse case scenario, sometimes things happen at the wrong time. Your description of the problem indicates that it is software, but hardware can cause problems at any time. Lets just hope that the Install DVD works. If not, I have to go with hardware, anything from hard drive to memory and everything in between.

Glad that you were able to sort out your problem,
To avoid this sort of thing from happening again. Download the free Macrium Reflect, which will allow you to make an image of your hard drive. If you store it on an external and make images once a week or so, if you ever have a problem you can restore your hard drive with the image. No need to reinstall software etc. Good luck
