Windows V7 workstation will not boot, even in safe mode.

We have a single Windows V7 64 bit workstation that will not boot, even in safe mode.

The workstation begins to start, and we see the windows logo as usuall, but then the screen goes blank and the workstation reboots in the same cycle.

I have tried the repair option, and also a previous restore point, but this does not achieve anything.

I also tried running an upgrade, but I am then told to reboot the workstation normally and run setup.exe from the DVD. The problem is that we cannot start the workstation at all.

Does anyone have any ideas on how we can resolve this situation?

Many thanks.

Connect the HD to another PC and look for and zip the last 3 *.dmp files (probably in the \Windows\Minidump folder. They are hidden and restricted, sk make sure you open the explorer as administrator when doing that. Then attach that zip file with your next comment.

You could also test the RAM on that PC using memtest86+, and the HD using it's manufacturer's diagnostic utility. You'll find both of those tools on the UBCD:

Boot from windows 7 disc ..go to command prompt and then run this command

bootrec /rebuildbcd


Reboot system and check.

Tried the Bootrec command but it did not achieve anything, and remains the same. Thanks anyway.

Will try transpanting the drive to another workstation, as soon as possible, and make the psoting as requested.

Many thanks.
