System Driver Error - New Win7 PC build problem
Hey everyone, I'm a new member here and have built a couple machines in the past but never had problems until recently with my newest build.
I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and it seemed to take much longer than usual for it to load up. After it completed installation it rebooted and gave me a black screen with the error message:
Info: "Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt."
I tried repairing it with the windows disk like it recommends, I tried deleting the partition and reinstalling windows on a new one, I checked the bios and it seemed to recognize everything to be good, I ran memtest and the memory tested out to be okay, and nothing has worked or really helped me get an idea of what the problem may be. I'm thinking it's a hardware issue so here's my specs:
Intel C2Q Q8400 2.66Ghz
A-Data 4GB DDR3 1333 (PC10666)
MSI N250GTS 1GB 256-bit OC GDDR3
OCZ Stealth X Stream 700W PS
Western Digitial Caviar Blue 1TB HD
Asus DRW 24B1ST 24X DVD Burner
I looked in the stickies up top to see if there were any info but couldn't find any so I hope this isn't a respot. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
