Cant get into Windows.....HELP

Recommended Posts

Okay, i just got my gx xtc from the egg and installed along with fresh install of windows. Everything was going smooth, i was running at 255mhz. Just got done installing everything. Turn off my computer to install sound card. Install it and boot up.......windows doesnt work. Reset my bios, tried again......the windows bar just keeps going and going. Safemode only load the first exe. then freezes......no idea. I have thee worst luck with memory and overclocking you dont even know.

 

Please help!

take sound card out and try again?

 

Run windows repair of the cdrom, wont affect anything BUT the windows dir... works like a charm. You would still have all your emails, programs etc.

Did you install Windows before or after the overclock?

You could have corrupted the data on your HD with the overclock.

 

Though I would remove the sound card and try see if it works first.

Try these suggestions and if the sound card is the issue, RMA it for a refund and shoot for the X-FI ExtremeMusic which is around $110. Did you install RAID drivers on your OS? Are you even running an Array on your two harddrives or just regular?

Yeah i am running RAID0, and i started overclocked after the install. but it was not severe overclocking, i was just tinkering with the RAM. For the windows repair, do i do that process through dos, or do i go about it like im installing windows and repair the partition?

Okay guys, well, i reinstalled....AGAIN! And everything is running smooth I am not overclocking my RAM at all, my cpu from 2400 to 2500(nothing). And i turn my comp off to clean up wires, then i turn on, and the windows bar keeps going back and forth........

 

Is there anyway my motherboard could be the problem?

 

I really am lost, my step dad who has an ultra-d told me that this his board is the squirlyist board that he has ever had, but the best overlcocker. He is looking at mine and he says that with mine you have no idea what its going to do and its really unpredictable. I have gone through every setting and nothing seems to work. I really dont want to reformat, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
