    My computer was in sleep mode so I held the power button down on I could reseat my audio card, it gets unseated pretty easily. Anyhow I booted back up and got the message that it could not resume previous windows session. I attempted to repair that did not work so I just told it to reboot and start fresh. Now it won't boot. Just constantly reboot

    First of all, no one has any idea what we are working on [other than you] Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb installed, cpu, ram, video card, exact pw supply installed, etc, etc.
    If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, then post the exact make and model.

    Next it would really help if you posted what os you are running; win xp, vista, win7, linux, etc.

    Most likely you have corrupted some files on the hard drive however before attempting any type of repair, test the hardware. Download the hard drive mfg's diagnostic and test the drive. Download memtest and test the memory. Both of these run from bootable media ie CD or flash drive; no need for an os to even be installed.

    Once both of these tasks are completed AND you have no failures, then boot with your win7 repair disk and attempt a repair. Hopefully it can do a auto repair however if not, choose the cmd prompt. Here are the list of commands to type. Start with bootrec to repair the boot record. You may need bcdedit as well.

    Console Command



    Change permissions on files.


    You can use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the master boot record (MBR), boot sector,and Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store


    Displays and allows you to change how Windows boots up. This command is useful for people who are having trouble with the Windows Boot Manager


    Changes the current directory


    Checks a hard disk for errors and attempts to repair them.


    Copy a file from one location to another.


    Deletes a file


    Lists the files and folders in the current directory


    Load the Windows disk management program. From this program you can create, delete, shrink, and expand your existing partitions as well as get information about partitions and hard drives


    Change file and folder permissions and display or modify access control lists (ACLs)


    Creates a new folder


    Displays the content of a file one page at a time


    Moves a file or a folder


    Perform Windows Registry operations.


    Rename a file or folder


    Remove an empty folder


    Display the contents of a file


    Copy a folder or files to another location

    Thanks all for the tip and help. I first removed the battery in the motherboard hoping to reset the bios and any settings that may have gotten messed up and it booted up after putting it back in after about 20 seconds. So thankfully this problem was solved! :)
