Specs: Windows 7
Hi to all,

my windows 7 suddenly stopped starting in any mode and the installation CD does not work , it hangs on the windows logo screen , I tried to install Fedora I get the message "setting up standard pci resources" and NO progress, it hangs !!!

I think it is Hardware Problem but what part is it??

I have Medion MD98200 laptop. Motherboard: Inter 945 GM, Bios: Phoenix

Thanks for comments

windows xp forum!

its very difficult to ascertain hardware fault in a laptop (well, economically). Most likely is motherboard - but replacing a laptop mobo is generally a very expensive job (compared to price of most laptops). It could be the processor - which is easier & cheaper to replace (but you'll need a proper service/disassembly manual or the services of a professional to try - and if no good almost certainly motherboard). Could also be memory, hard drive or optical drive (but in my experience, memory is usually good or bad from day1 - very rarely fails later, and optical/hard drives rarely prevent windows loading. Ebay is good source of laptop parts if you do want to try.

You might want to try a BartPE cd - which loads a windows xp environment (if you've got an xp disk to create one), but basically I suspect your machine is 'toast' as far as windows 7 is concerned. Its likely that one of the multiple motherboard functions has stopped working properly - not one that will stop those rescue CDs you tried loading, but will stop more extensive processes like windows install (and would have caused the original 'stopped working' problem).I have seen this scenario a couple of times (ie, its not very common, I've fixed hundred of PCs and laptops).

A motherboard replacement would be most likely fix, but as I said, usually very expensive, and not guaranteed. This is my best guess on what you've said - sorry its not more positive.
