    RedDethX What's a Dremel?

    Hello everyone I seem to be getting a weird error on my Dad's PC. Whenever I boot it up, it has a high chance of not booting into Windows 7 and it sits just past the POST screen with a blinking underline. I've tried taking out RAM, cleaning CPU heatsink, booting with bare minimum, but alas nothing works. It doesn't also do this, sometimes it'll boot into Windows 7 but a majority of the time it will just hang there. :wallbash:

    Any help is appreciated, if it matters, he has a Phenom II X4 955 stock, Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5, 2x2GB G.Skill Ripjaw 1600MHz, WD Caviar Black SATAII 640GB, Corsair 750TX PSU.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Edit: Fixed it.
