Dell Precision 490 will NOT boot windows 7- windows failed to start a recent hardware or software change might be the cause
I have a dell precision 490 and it will not boot up windows 7. it says "windows failed to start a recent hardware or software change might be the cause". When I try to recover it, it will fail. When I try to boot windows, it will reboot and reboot and reboot until you power it down.
I Have tried the following:
Reset the CMOS Battery
Change order of Sata hardrives(In BIOS menu)
added RAM/ took out the RAM I manually put in
took out the jumper
used 1 hardrive at a time to see if there was a bad drive
checked each RAM stick that came with the desktop.
