So I just built my first ever pc but when I turn it on it tells me that windows cannot start up properly. I'm using my old hard drive and CD-burner but all new stuff. The Specs are-
Intel i5-2500k sandy bridge CPU
Geforce GTX 560 Ti
Corsair 650tx PSU
There are a few options here:
If you just swapped your old drive into the new computer without re-installing windows then be aware that you will have to. Problem solved.
If you did a re-install, then take comfort that your new hardware is good because you are getting to windows (though there is a possibility of bad ram, but I find this doubtful). There is a possibility that you just need a new HDD, and you will be fine.
Thank you and I was running Windows 7 on my "old" hard drive but I dont have the windows 7 disks because My old computer was a pre-built HP. I do have recovery disks but when I try to use them they are not allowed to be used with my current computer. Do I have to reinstall windows 7
