Windows 7: PC Getting No Power At All

FWIW, I'm fairly sure the Repair tools on the Windows 7 Repair Disc are exactly the same as those offered by the Windows 7 install disc.

Windows 7 seems to be very sensitive. I've had a few times where I started up and Windows insisted on running its repair/recovery routine, even though I had no reason to think I'd done anything to the disk it lives on.

I agree with the advice to run repair at least 3 times. Don't know why, but sometimes it works after multiple runs.

If worst comes to worst and your Win 7 install simply will not boot, there are tools to recover your data (My Documents etc.) before reinstalling.

Windows 7 x64 / Same


The reboot problem was due to the fact that when I was troubleshooting the PSU, I had reseated the battery and reset the CMOS. Therefore, my BIOS data was reset and was no longer set to AHCI for the hard disk. Once I changed it back to AHCI, it booted right up.

Thanks everyone for your contributions!
