hello, this is very strange. I am on Windows 7 x64
Today I turned my computer on and it stopped at the "Windows Error Recovery".

From the 2 options given I chose "Start Windows Normally"....
After pressing Enter it will not go beyond the black screen where it says "Starting Windows" and inmediately reboots to the "Windows Error Recovery" again.
I then chose the other option which is "Launch Startup Repair", entered the Disk, wait for it to load system files but it reboots to the Disk loading the files again like an eternal loop.

Tried the F8 Advance booting options, chose "boot in safe mode with command prompt", it starts loading but then it reboots itself again!!

I don t know what is going on, this is very strange, yesterday I worked all day in the computer...

My system specs are these:

>XFX Nforce 750i SLI
>Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 @ 2666 MHz
>3x2gb Corsair CM2X2048-6400C5 DIMM DDR2 PC2-6400U DDR2-800 (5-5-5-18 3-22-6-3)
>ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series
>WD Caviar Blue 500gb


Thanks a lot

Try F8 again and choose disable automatic restart on system failure. At least then you should be able to see the BSOD and maybe get some additional info.

Next thing I'd try is booting with the Ultimate Boot CD - http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ and start running tests on memory (MemTest) and the hard drive (HD Tune). If it crashes while running from the boot cd, it is most likely a bad motherboard or memory. Did you install any Windows updates / driver updates when you last shut it down?

....no drivers or updates installed, yesterday I worked all day on the Computer.

Everything I try to do just restarts the computer now.... but I have acces to the BIOS!

ummmm
