Many aspects can contribute to boot failure; one of them is hardware complaint. If any one of the hardware components is having a complaint and stops functioning, you cannot access your operating system and what you get is blank, black screen. The access to the system is denied to users and you may only be getting error messages. Boot failure can also occur if the booting disk doesn't contain all the boot files. If this disk is incompatible with your operating system, you cannot get access to your system. Defect in master boot record, boot sector, partition tables or corruption in NTLDR files also cause boot failure. Sometimes boot failure is occurred due to registry corruption.
Once your system fails to boot, you will be getting black or blank screen. You may be getting error messages like "0xc000000f" or "0x00000000" respectively. The first error message gives you black screen problem due to boot failure. The second problem indicates a more fatal crisis called the blue screen death of the system. These errors should be rectified immediately. Otherwise there is a chance of system crash and data losing problem.
Once you identify the boot problem through symptoms, do not wait to resolve this problem. Make sure that your drivers are empty. Then power on the computer and set-up your BIOS system. You can reboot your system with a CD after installing a new hard drive. The booting failure can also occur if the hard drive is not properly plugged. Check it and ensure your motherboard is correctly installed. If the boot failure occurs due to the corruption of system files, then try to recover them first.
