    I cannot boot to windows 7. When I turn my computer on I get a single post beep. Then I get a black screen with a white courser on the top left screen. I have tried many things to troubleshoot this problem. I have removed all usb devices. I have removed each device inside the computer such as dvd and blu ray player. I have re seated the RAM and reset the cmos battery. I have used different sata cables to drives. I have also tried to boot to cdrom and try to recover windows using the windows 7 cd. After trying all this it still results in a black screen with a white courser.

    I am running a Gigabyte 990xa-ud3 mobo
    AMD FX 8150 8 core processor
    4x4 16 gb corsair vengeance 1600 MHz RAM
    Evga N560 GTX video card
    lg blu ray player

    Unfortunately I do not have many replacement parts to see if the hardware is the problem. I did try my old video card and that did nothing.
    Any advice would be helpful.
    Thanks

    When you tried to boot to cdrom what disk was in the drive, are you sure it is bootable, and are you sure that the computer really tried to boot to it?

    it was the windows 7 install cd. I have used it to boot and reload windows before. I changed the boot priorities to cdrom first. Technically I dont think it tried to boot to cd because it usually says press any key to boot to cd which i never got the option to do. just a black screen with a courser.
