    Please add your SF Systems Specs by following this tutorial:
    System Info - See Your System Specs
    • In the System Manufacturer/Model Number field, manually type Desktop or Laptop adding it to the information already in the field.
    • Specify Custom Build as the manufacturer if it is not an OEM machine.
    • The tool does not fill in this information but it is very important if someone has to research drivers or hardware for your machine.
    Log on to Sevenforums (SF) and let the tool fill in you System specs on your SF profile.

    Full instructions are in the tutorial. It's a simple process and it makes that information readily available on your posts. You don't have to retype the information in any thread.

    Click here to view your system specs on SevenForums.

    Click on My System Specs in the lower left of any post by any member to see what is presented about their machine.

    It's impossible to provide any useful information that might help solve the issue unless members have information about your machine.

    Desktop PC with Win7 Pro (currently in your SevenForums Profile System Specs) is not sufficient for troubleshooting purposes


    Are there any LEDs or Beeps when you start the machine?

    This is perplexing, I'm not sure what to suggest other than
    Windows Defender Offline (WDO)

    You'll have to know how to boot your machine from a DVD drive - usually an Fkey at BIOS startup but before Windows starts. I don't know what Fkey your BIOS assigns to the Boot menu, so you'll have to check the manual, Fkeys are different depending on the machine.

    You only have a few seconds to hit enter once you get the Boot menu, otherwise Windows starts normally and you have to try again.

    Let WDO it's work and report anything it finds.

    It posts, boots and starts to load Windows and then goes into repair mode and says that it could not repair.

    I have also been booting to the installation DVD. It also passed two CHKDSK /R and a downloaded AVG "repair" antivirus CD. I guess I will try the WDO.

    I don't think it is a hardware problem.

    You might just have to backup your files and start all over. You def have a very messed up system if none of the options worked.
