I'm having issues with my wife's computer (yet again!) and would like some help if possible.
It was initially BSODing on reboot. I was able to go in and finally see the error message and it said: "A clock interrupt was not received..." and of course I don't remember the rest because this was a few days ago. Using Google I tried their suggestions (bootfix, resetting BIOS, chkdsk) but nothing has worked. I went ahead and tried to do a repair install of Windows 7, and it said it was complete and when I reboot it just goes to a black screen and nothing ever happens (eventually reboots).
Things it's doing now:
1. Will not boot into Safe mode. Since the Windows Install wasn't technically complete until it reboots it won't let me boot into safe mode anymore.
2. Will not boot off a Ubuntu disk. We have some files we'd like to save on the HDD and I know that they are still there (I was able to get into safe mode yesterday).
3. Gives me a black screen after the Windows logo appears.
Yesterday I uninstalled/reinstalled the video drivers and that didn't fix anything. Today I ran Memtest86 and it all passed. What do you guys suggest I do? I don't really have any spare parts laying around.
