Windows 7 Won't Reboot And Cannot Reboot From DVD?

My computer hard drive crashed a week ago and most of my back-ups went with the system. So, I got a new 500 GB drive and have been re-installing everything from scratch. I started with a clean install of Windows XP (service pack 2), which took forever to get all the up-dates done. Then I upgraded to Windows 7 and did the up-dates for that. I didn't make a recovery disk at this point because I wanted to get everything installed first.Unfortunately, the last time I went to reboot it failed. When I power-up the computer it stalls out on the Dell BIOS screen. I can't get into Safe Mode, Setup, or the Boot Menu because my keyboard and mouses are not working. They are both USB and none of my USB ports are working. (Also, I have not PS/2 ports on my machine.).

Pause For A While, Then Reboot?
The reason I ended up there was because I was getting a problem where, at random times during random programs, the computer would lose signal to the monitor... Pause for a while, then reboot. Figuring I might have old hardware profiles that needed updating, I went to check my windows updater and found it was disabled... A short series of checks and Gringo was head to head with a Zero Acess Infection, which he promptly kicked the backside of.However, since then, the black screen issue has returned. It seems it wasn't Malware related. It doesn't seem to have any obvious pattern. Sometimes it happens when nothing it happening at all, and when I get back to the computer there is just an error log.Sometimes it happens twice in a row, sometimes not for hours. CPU and GPU seem to be at normal tempsWhen windows reboots it has the following error log: Problem signature: Problem Event Name[CODE]

Reboot And Choose OS
Does anyone know of a software available that lets you reboot from Windows and choose another OS besides the auto default, in a multiboot scenario?

I need something like this because I Dameware into my other computer a lot and would like to be able to get it to boot to another OS than default, remotely.

I guess I could use EasyBCD to change the default OS when I want to reboot but hoping to do this without editing bcd.

VHD Works, But Gone After Reboot
I followed the turorial and tried three or four times to make a VHD and it works but upon re-booting my PC the VHD I created is gone. I can get it back by re-attaching it but reboot and it's gone again. Oh my Bios is set up correctly in case any one asks.

Warm Reboot
I remember a functionality in Vista/XP where you could hold the SHIFT button for a warm reboot which effectively avoided having to go through BIOS POST.

I have tried this in Windows 7 however no luck.

Has this been removed? if so that suck cause i have a RAID controller which takes a long time to go through all of its tests/init.

Overnight Reboot
I was running Windows XP and kept the system up for weeks on end. I just installed Windows 7 7600 last night and throughout the night the system will just restart. I saw some "power" labeled things in the event viewer mostly some wake on things with an "unknown" source but honestly it's not shedding much light on things. Is there anything I can do, change or install that will monitor why this happens?

Reboot Loop
I have been following the progress of Windows 7 through beta stages. I currently operate on Windows XP SP3 which runs great, however Ive very recently decided to go for WIndows 7 beta. I completely backed up all my information, booted from DVD, formatted and then started to install.

It copies/ expands all the files to 100%, then does a normal restart, It then comes up with starting windows> registering entries etc, the carries on finalising the install only to reboot itself?

After the reboot it gives me the windows recovery screen. If it tries to boot up it just goes into a reboot loop. I am sooo confused.

The thing is I would say I know my way around PC software and Hardware very well. I have tried different BIOS settings, Optimising defaults, Load-Fail Safe Defaults, Creating New Partitions etc.

Installation Won't Reboot
I've been trying to install Windows 7 on a brand new computer. It's running RAID 0, and I'm using the latest drivers from my motherboard manufacturer.

Starting up the installation seems to work fine. It goes through the first phase of installation where I choose which partition I want to use, and it starts to copy files from the dvd, yada yada yada. After the "installing updates" section, a window pops up with the following message:

"Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install Windows, restart the installation."

It then kicks me back to the start of installation. If I start the install again, it does the same thing. If I reboot and restart installation, also the same.

If I try a startup repair, I get a message saying that Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

I've tried this on two builds--7000 and 7077. Both have the same result.

All functions work fine, but when I reboot Windows 7, after the reboot the audio volume is set to max (100%); this does not happen when rebooting into Vista Ultimate x64 or XP Pro x32.

After Reboot UI Problems
Once i reboot my computer I get the issue shown in the picture attached.

In order to fix it, I go into the screen resolution and change it. Everything will go back to normal and I will then revert it back to the original. It's a tough thing to explain, so I havnt done much googling. any ideas?

Oh and it started happening after I added the RSS feed. I have tried removing it but it doesn't seem to help.

Cannot Reboot / Restart Computer
I have a Dell Inspiron 1440, and after it crashed while I was out for Dinner yesterday, I have been encountering so many problems..Yesterday, I was able to get back into my "Account" and access my desktop, but after a few minutes of being on, every single program/application I had opened turned "Not Responding" and stayed that way.

Now today.. I thought it had gotten better, so I did virus scans, registry updates, defragmenting, all of that, and my Laptop worked fine for a few hours. Then it became worse.

I scheduled a Disk Check, and when it finished, it restarted my laptop, but after the Windows Logo that pops up, all I get is a black screen and a cursor that I can move around. This not only occurs in Normal Mode, but Safe Mode, Safe Mode + Network, and Safe Mode + Command Prompt

Complete Lag And Slow Down After Reboot?
Before I go along with my rant, I'm not a computer expert nor near one. I'll try to provide as much information as I know/have. I'm desperate for any answer and if this is located in the incorrect aI have a Lenovo Windows 7 64-bit laptop. I currently have 4.00GB of RAM ( 3.80GB usable ), my processor is Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU P6100 @ 2.00GHz.I've always had problems with my two USB slots and the bottom one stopped working all together. Last night, after pushing my USB cord in the incorrect slot, I heard a crack. After replugging my mouse into the correct USB slot, it would not work. After rebooting my computer, it completely slowed down as if someone recorded what I was doing on the computer and played it in slow-motion.

Start up took about 5 minutes and was quite sluggish. It told me to pick an OS and my choices were either "7" and I forgot the other option, unfortunately. Freaking out, I tried to shut it back off, but once I took my finger off the button, it turned on automatically no matter how long I held it down. This time it asked if I wanted to " repair ( recommended ) " or start normally. I chose to repair my computer and it showed no difference.When I finally got on my name I right away noticed the sluggish performance. Again, it was like my actions were being performed in slow motion. I turned on some music and instead of hearing some lovely piano, I heard a completely lagged song. When getting on my internet ( which I'm still struggling with at this moment ) it took me nearly half an hour just to create an account here, when usually I'd be done lickity split.

I was told by a few friends who are knowledgeable with computers that the USB cannot effect the actual hardware. I'm afraid that, that crack I heard at least did something, since right before I restarted the computer it was working fast and perfectly. Mind you, this computer is only 6 months old.I restored my computer and it made no difference. I check for viruses and malware everyday ( using Spybot, microsoft essentials and malwarebytes anti-malware ) and my results came clean. I'm sorry for the long rant, but I tried to provide as much information as I could. I did try contacting Lenovo, but I do not have a phone nor a cell phone due to financial reasoning and that's the ONLY way to contact their tech support.

Reboot Loop Before Post?
The problem is minor and it's just a bit of an annoyance I've been dealing with from time to time.[CODE]Basically, If I were to I put my computer to sleep(using the sleep function, not hibernate) and try to wake it up within a few seconds, the computer would go into an automatic reboot loop that would continue to boot, shut down, boot, shut down until I turn off the PSU completely. I'm trying to figure out which component might be causing this problem, if any. I've updated my bios, drivers, and ran memtest but nothing seemed out of the ordinary and it didn't fix the problem.

Reboot Before Installation Is Complete?
I have attempted to install Windows 7 a couple of times now (with different copies each time) and I keep getting the same problem:Everything goes very smoothly for the most part. It finishes the installation, and then goes to reboot. When it attempts to load up Windows 7 the first time, I get the black screen that asks what mode to start windows in (Safe Mode, Start Normally, etc) and I choose start normally. It then brings up the Win 7 startup screen, but pops up with an error that explains that the computer was rebooted unexpectedly and the install did not complete.From this point, all I can do is click the "ok" button (the only option given in the dialog box) which just restarts the computer. If I just let it go and don't touch anything, it brings me back to the exact same message. This happens infinitely. My only other option is to boot from CD again, which lets me start the install all over again. But this still just results in the same error. I ended up just re-installing XP so that I could try and find a fix for the issue.

Random HDD Become Read Only After Reboot?
After about each second/third reboot one of my 6 hard drives become read only. It usually happen to a random drive (though, so far drive where W7 is installed never had that disease, yet) . I can't change any files on that drive and even right click option "New" is missing too (meaning I can't create new folders, files, etc.) The drive stays read only until I run check disk with "automatic fix file system errors" enabled. (UPDATE: it worked only once, after that I had to clear up readonly attribute with diskpart shell command)I don't recall ever seeing W7 do scan disk at startup, but I've seen XP doing that, but XP does it usually to one HDD,because of one faulty program I'm using on it. So, I'm not sure if W7 even has that scan at boot feature at all...If for some reason it decided mark a hdd as "dirty", then why not scan it at boot as XP does?

Netbook Hangs After Reboot?
my ASUS Eeepc 1015 netbook, running Windows 7 starter, hangs after i try to restart -- mainly after an update.

after acknowledging the restart, the screen would go dark and hang. i would have to hold down the power button to shut it off, then i would start it up manually.

as a side issue probably related to the netbook... often when the netbook goes into screensaver mode the mousepad doesn't respond when i want to get out of said screensaver mode. i have to hit a button in order for the netbook to "wake". once in a blue moon, even that doesn't work, and i have to reboot.

Windows 7 Shutdown Causes Reboot.
I've got a problem with shutting down Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit version, I have read through all the posts about windows restarting when shutdown is pressed or the off button is pressed on the desktop PC. I have gone into BIOS and altered the restart in event of system failure, and also done the same on My Computer in advanced settings but none have worked.I have done a check on Microsoft's website to check all the hardware and software too, and the results were all clear. Apart from Adobe Photoshop 3, when I installed this program for some reason I was unable to get an internet connection. And I had to swap my Panda Internet Security for Windows Security Essentials, which I have found out since is better than most of the top brands that you pay for; and it is free to all those people who have got the genuine system from Microsoft.I have all the latest updates for the software and drivers too, also done a full scan of the PC including the two external hard drives that I have connected to the PC.

Language Change Due To Reboot?
I bought my Asus laptop not too long ago but have somehow caught spyware so I decided to just reboot it from factory settings but the language seems to have changed. The original setting was in English but it has now changed to Spanish and I can't get it to switch back. I'm not sure how this happened. Whether I accidentally clicked a button during the reboot sequence to have the language switched, I'm not too sure. All I know now is I'm stumped on how to change it back. I've tried rebooting it again but it doesn't seem to want to change back to english anymore and I am stuck on a language I can hardly understand. Since I don't have a CD or anything to boot from besides what is already on the HD

Random Reboot On A HP DV7 Notebook?
os: windows 7 ultimate 64bits (haz linux installed as well )
device: hp dv7-4080us (out of warranty )

i cannot recall the first time it started but it keeps happening here and then, everyday, with full load or in idle state and happens most of the time on windows, happened just once when i was on my linux install with the latest kernel from chakra repos, which i cannot say for sure the version.i have that feeling that it is vga related because most of the reboots happens when i am watching videos in flash (like Internet); even if the video is paused and i am working on something else.

Laptop In Reboot Loop
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, HP G61-304NR laptop is auto rebooting over and over again. I have tried system recover from my recover disks - it did not work. I ordered system recovery disks from HP and had the recover disk reformat the Windows partition (I have a valid backup of this computer).Tried to boot in the following modes:

-Safe Mode
-Safe Mode w/Command Prompt
-Low Res Video
-Disable Driver Signing Enforcement

None of these things work. It appears that the problem may be associated with atipcie.sys driver. I assume this because the safe mode driver boot stops at disk.sys and the next driver that needs to load is atipcie.sys. At that point, the computer goes into windows and then reboots. I cannot get to a command prompt. I have tried to get to a command prompt by booting from the recover disk, by booting through safe mode with command prompt. I cannot get there. The laptop successfully gets through BIOS, and goes to Windows, but then it goes through some command screens (looks like scripts, cscript.exe), but then automatically reboots.

Sporadic Reboot After RAM & GPU Upgrade?
I upgraded my computer from an ATI Radeon to a GTX560 and upgraded the RAM from 8 GB to 16 GB. It has been very stable up until this upgrade. It randomly will reboot.Initially I thought the problem was RAM related, so within the last week I exchanged it for a different brand and type (Crucial, recommended for the machine), and while I waited for the new RAM, I reinstalled the stock 8 GB. The rebooting did not stop. The BSOD error is now. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL whereas with the initial RAM upgrade
