Asus A53SJ Laptop wont boot to Windows

I have an Asus A53SJ laptop that will not boot to Windows 7.

The issues started when the laptop was not shutdown one night.  It went into sleep mode and when an attempt was made to start it the following day, it would not start.

When you turn it on we see the Asus Bios Screen, it then goes black screen, a cursor for a second, then it restarts.

I have checked the BIOS and the BIOS can see the hard drive and DVD ROM drive.

I have imaged the hard drive to another new hard drive and same thing happens.  I have tested RAM in taking each of the 2 chips out but same thing happens.  

Could it be something to do with the boot record, maybe that has corrupted or is missing??

Try to boot with a bootable CD (something like Ultimate Boot CD). Does it start and run?

If so, see if you can do a Startup Repair. See this Seven Forums Tutorial below for steps on how to do that.
