Windows 7: Laptop Won't Boot

09 Aug 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
Laptop Won't Boot

Somehow some files got messed up on my laptop and it wouldn't boot. When I got home I put the Macrium Boot Disc in and was going to restore an image. The disk won't boot. It just tries to load and doesn't. I then tried to boot a Windows 7 disk (an Original) and it won't boot. It only gets as far as the Windows logo and appears to stop loading. The Windows Logo is still moving a little as if it is loading, but nothing happens. The DVD drive is lighting up as if working but in a few minutes it stops lighting up.. Why can't I get a boot from my DVD drive? == One more thing, in the Bios under boot drives, the SSD is labeled as HDD instead of SSD. That should not matter should it? (DVD is first boot option)

Try cleaning the lens of the optical drive with a little rubbing alcohol, with the unit off.

Thanks for the advice. == This morning I remembered I had the old HDD that I used before I bought the SSD. The HDD booted fine. I guess the SSD just died. I had limited info on there so there was nothing lost. I will just have to get a new SSD at some point.
