Can't load Windows 7 Ultimate

Gateway Gt5654 desktop

Specs: Windows 7, AMD 64x2/3MB
I am running Windows 7 ultimate without any
problems until today. I was about to open a web
browser to surf the the net and my computer froze.
Everything locked up, the keyboard was unresponsive
and the mouse pointer was not moving on the screen
when I moved the mouse. I ended up having to power
off and turn the computer back on. When I did this, I
get the Windows 7 status Oxc000000e. I've read
about this on the internet and read that using
easyBCD can fix the problem.

I have multiple computers and I swapped the hard drive
into a working system and it boots up without any
issues. When I put it in the computer with problems,
it will get to the welcome screen and freeze once
again.

Anyone know what the fix for this is??

Thanks.

you could do a repair of the win 7 installation.
boot into safe mode and remove any updates.
try a system restore.

could be a bad driver, or a bad piece of hardware, have you tried another hard drive in the machine that doesnt bootup?

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

I did try another hard drive in the machine that doesn't boot up and it stops at the same place. I'll try to boot into safe mode and we'll see what happens. Let me know if you have any other ideas.

Thanks.

With the hard drive swap out you did, it definately looks like a hardware issue. I would FIRST run Memtest (download a copy and create a bootable floppy or CD). You might have a bad stick of RAM, though you can try removing and reseating first. If the test shows any problems or will not complete, try with only one stick of RAM at a time to narrow it down.replace as needed.

I tried to boot into safe mode and it stops when it gets to the boot.sys file. I then put a Ubuntu live CD in and everything started right up but I can't get Windows 7 to boot up. I read that I can use easyBCD to try to fix it, but I'm not too sure. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks.

You need to do a repair install of Windows 7. If you have a full windows DVD, just set your BIOS boot order to DVD first, put in your windows disk, and restart. Select repair. If you have a recovery disk and windows 7 came with your computer, contact mfg (Gateway) support for instructions to repair rather than return to new condition.
