Hello, so my gaming PC recently started getting the error: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer"

If you do not have the disc... blah blah blah.

Status 0xc000000e

Info: the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

In the days leading up to this error, i was getting some serious archiving and graphical issues when trying to play games. I believe it is a problem with my graphics card (AMD radeon 7850 HD). But I have read it may have to do with the hard drive. My hard drive was replaced by nerds to go because there was a hard drive failure a little over a month ago, so its a pretty new HD. Since I was having so many graphical issues, it has led me to believe i need a new graphics card and I have one that I'm prepared to buy. But I want to confirm what the cause of this issue is before I go spending the money. Also, my computer has a pre installed copy of windows but I could borrow a disc from a friend and use my serial number. Please Help! Thanks.

Insert your Windows 7 disk and do a system repair.

Actually, I started windows again! But, then I got a quick flash of bars and the screen went black.

If I were you, I'd try the onboard graphics to rule out or blame the Radeon card, at least.

I'm also assuming you've done something similar to https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Fo ... red-device

Can you get into windows safe mode ( F8 ) upon boot? Does the same issue appear ( quick flash of bars and the screen went black )? If not, you may have messed up the video driver install if you just installed the latest driver. If you get the same issue, try running the hard drive's diagnostic software from its website. The software is free. If the drive says it is failing bring it back to the guys that fixed it and tell them to install a new drive at their expense. The drive is under a one year warranty.
