Well...it fell

My nephew pulled a cable and the tower fell over....the computer froze and my first thought was that the hard disk borked.

On restarting, the computer posts but just stays blank after the Asus splash screen.( I don't think it is going into a restarting loop bcoz the screen just stays blank the boot sequence does not happen again also the drive led does not blink)

Tried reinstalling windows...it installed, I booted in (YAY!!) changed the resolution to something bearable started downloading the drivers and it just died down again...on restarting it was same as before.

So I tried reinstalling windows again...same thing just this time I did nothing and still the computer died after 5 mins...after installing windows for the third time I quickly ran chkdsk C : in the command prompt only for it to tell me their is nothing wrong with the drive.

 

Now my question is do I have a broken drive or a shitty windows install.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Did you check all the connections of the components within?

Something might have become unseated, or a cable might have loosened.

Tried different SATA ports?

 

Did you try reseating everything? Is everything detected in the BIOS properly?

Everything shows up perfectly in the boot menu...I did get an overclocking error a couple of times randomly (never happened before) but restarting solved that

You beat your nephew, then force his parent to pay for a new machine.

It's not a race to the bottom.
