After installing Gigabyte H61M-S2PV mobo, can't boot into Windows. It was working fine until I uninstalled C++ Redistributable 2010. I did that because Autodesk said it was interfering with my attempts to download their product. Now it hangs up at the BIOS splash page, but won't go into the BIOS. Trying to boot from the install or the repair disk doesn't help. I think the optical drive, mouse and keyboard might be disabled, but I'm not sure. Anyone know how I can fix this?
