Last week my PSU went out and my computer shut off. I swapped out the PSU and a HD which supposedly had shown S.M.A.R.T errors(Not my OS drive). i took out all the drives and only had my OS drive installed. After getting past the bios screen it just shows a blinking dash in the upper left corner. I have Windows 7 x64 ...

Any ideas on how to fix this without reinstalling Windows 7?

Thanks

is the new drive being recognized in bios? ...is your bios confused about the new HD/what to boot? try reset cmos and reset boot device priority afterward...
