i just swapped hard drives and i might have an issue, need advice pls

#1TekutsoPosted 1/29/2014 8:20:06 AM
Switched my dead hard drive out of my computer, put the hard drive from my girlfriends in. When it started loading up it went off and on and said it failed to start. It said this could be caused by new hard ware. I had the option to start windows normally or attempt a start up repair. I selected start up repair and its currently scanning.

Now, could this be an indicator my hard drive wasn't the only problem? Will it run as long as it was only a faulty hard drive after the repair? Something else being wrong won't ruin this good hard drive right?

Any advice is appreciated.

Yeah it's saying the startup repair can't help me... And hit won't load, the windows symbol starts to show for Windows 7 then it just goes to the computer failed to start screen :(.

Any ideas?

I would have tried start windows normally and if it failed that THEN I'd do the repair option.

All it says in the analysis is unspecified system changes may have caused the problem... :(.

Should I just put the hard drive back in my other computer?

Yes, it is freaking about because it does not have drivers for the new hardware.
