i turned the computer off (without going to shutdown) to reconnect the front usb wires to the m/b. i also disabled memory sharing for a video card that i dont use and swapped ram cards. i switched the ram back before i started the computer back up however. ubuntu boots fine, but when i go to boot windows it asks me if u want to boot into safe mode or to boot windows regularly or with last known good configuration. safemode starts but stops a few files in. last known good configuration just goes to a black screen and windows never loads, while booting windows normally just freezes. when i booted into ubuntu it told me i couldnt access my windows harddrive because NTFS was marked for use. i fixed that with ntfsfix. im able to access my files now through linux. i re-enabled the memory sharing and unhooked the usb, still no luck. if anybody can help me out, id appreciate it.

Maybe your system file on your OS is corrupted. Best way to do is to reformat your hard drive and install fresh OS.

This is the simpliest way for shooting such troubles. Because it works everytime.

But I think it is more preferrrable to fix that without re-installing windows.
