Yeah, using the disk to repair would be the fastest solution. But i am really curious to know what causes this problems.
Ok, well, what could have happened is that since you used only 32bit OS's before, the difference with x64 is that for the first time you are using the last 1GB of you 4GB ram.

Now this could mean several things, but firstly you should see if there's a more recent BIOS for your mainboard.

Lots of mainboards have problems with using more than 3GB in their first BIOS versions. (but be carefull updating Bios)

It could also be that that last Ram strip is corrupt, but you never noticed because you never used it before because you were on 32bit OS.

If BIOS update doesn't help, try taking out that last strip of ram and see if Windows runs smooth on 3GB.

When this all doesn't help, you could/should reinstall Win7.
