Windows 7 started freezing after 1 month of use. It locks up in the "Loading Windows" screen during the animation. I have tried using Windows repair upon boot but it locks up also. Sometimes i get a 2-Beep sound coming from my CPU which should signify a CMOS Setting Error. I have tried booting in safe mood which still locks up. Attempted last known good configurations. Also i have removed the battery from the CPU and reentered BIOS and tried "Fail Safe Configuration" as well as "Optimal Configuration". I switched HDDs. Attempted to boot CD-ROM first and reinstall windows but that failed to load also. All attempts i made have no impact. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get my PC to boot?

Try your troubleshooting and reinstall with the Flash Media Reader disconnected from the motherboard.
