Windows 7: Win7 Installed Successful . . . for now

Win7 Installed Successful . . . for now


I have installed Win7 successfully (the only OS on a newly formatted machine) however each time I have set it up and turned it off . . . the OS will not start up again.

Sometimes it has the Windows writing at the bottom (but no image) and other times just a blank screen . . .

I have tried the system startup fixing thing a number of times, have tried a system restore, have pressed F8 (last good config & safe mode both have proved useless!)

The only option I had was a clean install.

The problem is, the same thing happened again!

Any ideas?

The first time I installed Win 7 I used the Windows Update (optional updates) to update a couple of drivers . . . however I didn't do this the second time (thinking that this may have caused the issue).
