Recently i had this problem where my PC won't boot past POST, only blank screen where normally it would show windows 7 boot screen logo. It will only load windows after i press ctrl + alt +del to reset it.
Here are the things that i've tried to narrow down the problem.
Problem still persist :
1. Load fail safe default settings in bios
2. Clear CMOS
3. Disconnect other HDDs (total 6 HDD) except primary boot HDD (Seagate with Win 7)
4. Use only 1 stick RAM
I tried booting from another HDD (WD which has WinXP installed) and it starts normally, no issues as mentioned above.
Could this be an issue with my Seagate hard drive? Is it a symptom of failing HDD?
Would like to hear your opinion before i decided to buy a new drive.
