Windows 7: Windows 7 won't boot past eVGA P55 splash screen after update

Coincidence most likely. I somehow doubt that anything from Windows Update could cause a boot/post problem and if it did, I would not be installing anything ever again from Windows Update.

i tried removing one pair of RAM, still had the same issue. I'm trying to go into BIOS to do a memory check / change my boot order, but it moves so goddamn slow its nearly impossible to get to the boot configuration option. I don't understand, because it was immediately after a windows update that this issue started to occur.

I'll try again to boot from the CD.

Is this an upgrade to Win 7 from Vista? I see in your specs that it's a "custom" build. Do you think this update was a WGA validation component?

Hi

You could attempt resetting the CMOS - have a look here

If you're using the Win7 installer it is a DVD so set the DVD drive first to boot.

Or boot it using one-time Boot Menu accessed by tapping ESC or whatever else is given for Boot Menu on the first boot screen.

Pull all but one stick of ram and try. If that doesn't work try another one at a time until it boots. If that doesn't work, start trying each ram slot one stick at a time.

Also, do you have a card reader with a memory card in it or a USB key plugged in? If yes to either remove the memory card or USB key.

If all that doesn't work disconnect all hard drives (might want to do this while trying each stick to save time) and leave only one stick of ram in. If one of the hard drives (specs say 3) up and died (and yes they can go without warning), a dead hard drive can stop the computer from booting.

Pure coincidence. The fact that you can't get past the bios says it is hardware, as Windows isn't even starting to load until after the bios posts.

Okay...I unplugged all external HD's / USB keys (had a couple because of audio recording programs) and was able to boot from the windows disc...so then I took out the installation DVD and it booted fine now...

Thank you very much for the suggestion on removing USB devices. The problem, after investigating more, was my WD external drive. Which is confusing because it has literally been plugged in since I got this system. Anyways, thank you everyone for the help, I appreciate it very much. Even the stuff that I looked at that wasn't the cause of the problem, that could very well come in handy in the future.

Thanks!
