Windows 7: Boot up issues

30 Jun 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Boot up issues

Turned my PC on about an hour ago, and nothing appeared on the monitor.....

Changed the wire to MOBO graphics...still nothing, unplugged all my SSD's and HDDs apart from 1 HDD, screen came on and asked to boot from Cd/DVD ROM.

I then plugged everything back in and it booted up and got to "Loading Operating System" and its just sits there for ages, then eventually it starts windows.

My OS is installed on an SSD btw.

Why is this happening?

Boot into BIOS setup to set SSD first to boot with only your SSD plugged in. Is it detected? What error do you get then?
