  1. My computer had to be taken apart to get fixed so I moved my Hard Drive to my other computer and when it boots windows the bar moves across a couple times then reboots, but it seem to boot fine when I do safe mode. So i figured maybe ill go to msconfig and unclick it all but that didnt work. I also tryed to uninstall my video drivers but still nothing.

    Hi Predict,

    You need to tell me what Operating System you have (Xp? Vista?)
    Also do you have the original install CD?

    Which step did you take, the Repair option?

    In Safe Mode, what actually happens? Is it just a blank screen? Can you press Ctrl+Alt+Del keys together, then click on File-->Run and type in explorer.exe then click ok
