Today i turned on my pc and experienced a new problem where my pc went to the windows loading screen and it was stuck at the loading circle. I am running on windows 8.1. i tried switching to a hard drive that has windows XP but i again crashed into the same problem. Then i tried reinstalling the windows but it doesn't boot up to the windows setup.
 
It could be related to a hardware problem on your system.
Which Windows version were you reinstalling?
Did you change the boot order so it will boot from the installation media?
Did you get any error messages?
Could you post your system model or components?

Windows 8.1 march 2018.
I selected the installation media by pressing F12.
No, i did not get any error messages.
I have an old machine consisting of core 2 duo e6550 processor, a gigabyte ga g41m combo mobo. A couple of ddr3 ram clocked at 1600mhz. And a sandisk 250gb hdd at 7200rpm

Try again but only with one RAM module.
You could try with each RAM module on different RAM slot.
Was that a sudden issue or were you experiencing any other issues prior ?
I have a single 2gb ddr3 1600mhz ram stick. I tried it another stick which i had but it didn't work.
It was a sudden error otherwise i was even able to play games on it.
