HD Stopped booting after resize C: drive

Hello All,
sorry my English is not so good.
I am using Win7 ultimate with 2 GB RAm, 350 GB WD SATA HDD.
I Installed Win7 ultimate yesterday on Fresh HDD .By default it took for System: 100 MB space, C:\123.22 GB (Boot drive) space and E:\174.77 GB .
Then I decided to resize C: drive partition to make more free space in order to create other partition.
So , I used Paragon Partition Manager 11 Special Edition software and resize c:\ to 115 GB. That process completed successfully. Now problem is my PC is not booting.
I mean when I boot my PC it detect WD SATA HD but no go ahead from that status.Even I cannot change Bios nor change Boot option.

I am very worried. Please help me.

Dual Booting Windows 7 64-Bit Ultimate Edition and Fedora 16.
 
 

Are you able to enter BIOS?
Do you have a Laptop or a Desktop?

If you have a Desktop, try resetting your BIOS, by removing the battery.

You should try Startup Repair to correct missing boot files. You will need a Windows 7 Installation Disk, or if you created one earlier, a Windows 7 Repair Disk.

It is sometimes necessary to run Startup Repair 3 or 4 times to correct the boot files.

This is not good. Can you remove the WD drive from the system completely, and then get into BIOS?

It sounds like your HDD is dead, since it kills the other PC too, unless it is the cable you are using.

Not good at all. If I can find some info on what may have happened and any possible solution I will post back.

Do you have backups of your personal files? Meaning: are you OK with just throwing that drive away and getting a new one to do a fresh install on?
