Today I was playing a video game that my computer can easily handle. I recently rebuilt it into a gaming computer with:
Processor: Phenom ii x4 965 BE
GPU: Radeon 7770
BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s HDMI motherboard
I've been gaming perfectly fine for about 3 weeks. I was playing today and all of a sudden I got the BSOD. I tried to reboot and windows got stuck at "Starting Windows" then it reboots and gives me a "Windows failed to start" screen and gives me the option to repair or start windows normally.
1. Starting Windows Normally. The process above repeats itself
2. Attempting to use windows repair takes me to a black screen and nothing loads.
3. I've tried changing BIOS sata from ACHI to IDE, or Native IDE. Neither makes a difference.
4. I tried booting into "Safe Mode". This only gives me a BSOD.
Can anyone offer me and suggestions on how to fix this?
I thought I narrowed the problem down to me installing a new motherboard without a clean installation of windows. Unfortunately not.
I bought a Windows 8 Upgrade and booted it from the DVD drive and the Windows 8 Logo appears and a blue screen comes up the same color as if its loading, but nothing happens. My computer either freezes or reboots.
