Ahhey, Hello and thank you ahead of time for taking the time to read this and even more so if you can help me out.

First off let me give you a short overview then to the system parts.
Alright so after a year of my computer running flawlessly it randomly restarted and hit an error "Overclock failure" and many ports where broken on the MB mostly all sata and usbs. So I replaced my motherboard and the company took responsibility due to the only OC I did was a board feature not something I did myself. I replaced the board and it worked perfectly for one day and now I get is BootMGR is missing.

Now for the specs:
OS: w7 64bit
CPU: bulldozer 8150
MOBO: Asus Crosshair V-z (before the failure it was just the Asus Crosshair V)
Ram: 16gbs of AMD entertainment
Cooler: h80
Harddrives: I have a lot in but the two main ones are a SSD120gb and a 2tb
GPU: XFX 6950

So here is where I am now. Everytime I start my machine it goes through post fine gives me that ever so reassuring single beep tells me it recognizes all my parts (mouse keyboard CPU ram card all the HDs) then goes to the Bootmgr is missing. I tried to change the satas and I tested my hds they are all fine. Also I tried to update the bios from the ASUS site and I put it on a flash drive. which I may of done wrong and might have to retry. What are some things I could try to fix this?

ONE LAST NOTE: In the 24 hours that it worked my surround sound didnt. It played only out of the stereo Left and Right and my sub. When I tested it in sound it played the chime through all 5 and the sub... which confused me more.

Any help would be so appreciated. I am very stressed out as for this computer is one of my prouder accomplishments in life and I dont like seeing my baby sick D: haha.

Thanks again for your time!

You need to repair or copy the bootmgr file.
Do the following steps,

Put the Windows installation disc in the disc drive, and start the computer.(In the BIOS settings,make CD/DVD as first bootable device)
Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.
Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.
Click Repair your computer.
Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd , and then press ENTER.

Did you check the boot order in the Bios of your new motherboard to make sure the drive with Windows is being loaded first?

When you replaced the motherboard did you replace it with the exact same board or a different board? If it's different you will need to do a full reinstallation of Windows. You most likely will have to do that anyways.

I will try this out! Seems logical and something I should of thought of trying. I will let you know tonight how it goes when I get home.

g-unit No it was an upgrade but it did run for 24 hours before the failure but if the repair doesnt work I will try that.
JDW yes I did do that!
