|Custom built PC running windows 7 (dual boot with XP though haven't logged into XP for about a year now).|
PC has been running fine with 1TB and 640GB hdd until last night. Came out of sleep mode and the PC froze trying to log in. I hard reset (nothing else was responding) and it could not get past the boot screen. I powered down and powered back up - I was able to get past the boot screen but it's now stuck at the Verifying DMI pool data step.
That was late last night so I decided to call it an evening and head for bed and do some research at work. Most indications seem to point to a harddrive/boot sector issue - is it possible the motherboard or controller is fried?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
