PC wont boot past windows startup

Hello, so i downloaded an updated Realtek driver yesterday and faced the problem of having my sound not work afterward. I tried everything from and read a couple things on restarting my BIOS to factory setting by taking the motherboard battery out and putting it back after 60 sec. I placed it back into its component and put my computer back together and plugged it in and turned it on. I noticed that when i started it up it made 2 beep sounds instead of the usual 3(I also looked up that AMI motherboards with 2 beeps means faulty RAM so i replaced it with diffrent RAM and didnt work . Afterwards when the problem still persisted i tried the System repair tool with no luck either and dont know what to do next? If you have any insight on the matter please let me know :) Thank You

More about wont boot past windows startup
  1. Have you tried format? That usually solves lots of troubles
  2. Try booting up with only one ram stick in
  3. Ok well my motherboard doesn't have alot of BIOS options so reseting it in the BIOS is unavailable. Also i only have one RAM stick and have reseated it already multiple times
  4. Taking out the battery and leaving it off for a while will work.
    Usually though, you can change a jumper.
    What model of motherboard or brand and model pc is it?
  5. ok ill try just taking the battery out for longer and the motherboard has no jumper

    I know its a crappy MOBO but iT shouldnt be having this problem :(
  6. It has button on the motherboard to reset the cmos
  7. I looked it has no jumper and it doesnt say it has one in the manual
  8. ON the newegg page, it says that that motherboard has a button on it to reset the bios/cmos
  9. It should be a red button right below the black pci slot

    Go to control panel, click system and go to device manager and look for sound/audio under click realtek audio/sound right click and go to properties, from properties click roll back driver.

    His system is not booting.
  12. Oh okay, i found the correct image for your board. The CMOS clear jumpers are light blue
  13. haha didnt see it in the corner there but thanks. Sadly it didnt change a dam thing and i still cant boot :( I really don't know what to do ive tried everything. What about re installing windows?
  14. You can try using system Restore after the system repair fails; It should be an option in repair options
  15. You need to boot with your Windows 7 DVD to use System Restore, since your pc won't currently boot.
  16. I am running System Restore as we speak. It bugs me that the System recovry says that my computer ran every test successfully which doesnt make sense to why it wont boot :/
  17. there was an error message saying it couldn't go back to the restored point
  18. It could be corrupted; try another one further back if u can
  19. Did you try Safe Mode at all on this?
  20. yes i have
  21. im going to try taking everything out and putting it back together to see if maybe something was loose or seated incorrectly
  22. Hi there mrhoppsmc,

    Any reason why u don't reinstall the windows?
  23. hey and i wanted to try everything else first before i tried that. Now sadly after i took all the parts out and put it back together my comp wont turn on :( I built this computer myself before so idk why this is happening. I tried to jump the POWER SW but it didn't work for some reason and im pretty sure i have everything connected correctly. I tried looking up the front panel configuration and put the POWER SW in the right pin format but when i click the ON button in the front of the tower nothing happens either.
  24. Check the 4/8 pin connection.
  25. For some reason i moved the CMOS jumper back and my computer turn on again but im back to the same boot fail as before so im going to try re installing windows this time.

    When I can't fix the problem with in few hrs, I just reload the back up.

    Or reinstall everything : )

    All done within 30 min to 2 hrs. Most likely your system is corrupted.

    Well, good luck!
  27. And if u need to salvage some data,

    boot from another HDD or LiveCD and do the transfer ...
  28. am i able to save certain programs or documents and transfer them to a USB instead of a new HDD because i dont need to backup the whole thing because i dont wanna spend more money when this isnt guaranteed to fix the problem?
  29. Best answer
    Clean install is the fix.
  30. k i will let you know how it went
  31. Cool!

    Very true. That is how we did it in Desktop Support; Basically, anything more than an hour is a waste of time.
  33. ok it worked! Thanks for all the help.
