Reinstalling Windows-Back Up Disc is Corrupt

Hi!

I've got a problem before starting windows. There's always a prompt (Windows Boot Manager) asking which OS (Operating System) to choose but I only have one OS. Then I proceed with Windows 7 since I don't have any choice. Going to desktop, there's this freaky thing, highlight to choose is wobbling on desktop icons or any buttons. I can't control it and struggled to hit what buttons I want to click since it's uncontrollable. It only stops when I hit F5 (Refresh) button. These all happened when I tried to install Revit. I dont know if it's caused by a virus or the system is damaged due to incompatibility of software requirement or what not.

I used system restore to recover but it didn't helped. Then I decided to make system image back-up files and restore it to factory settings, still it didn't work. I was thinking that the system image is useless since it was created during this error or after the system was damaged. I can't use my earlier version of back-up files because it's corrupted (that was the first back-up since bought). I don't have a disc drive and Windows 7 is readily installed when I purchased it. I have recovery disc and application drive disc that are still working. But it doesn't comply in reinstalling windows. Now, I don't have system image that's working properly. Where can I get system image file from a trusted source?

Thanks!

If your machine came with Windows pre installed, that is oem. Acer counts as oem.

It is a strange term. It means MS has sold the license to "Other Equipment Manufacturer", as opposed to a boxed copy of windows some enthusisats buy for themselves.

Where are posting from ? That looks like KL time zone.
