There is definitively a problem with C
How do I get to these partitions? Do i go to command prompt? You said find error and fix it, how?
Select "command prompt" and type in the commands I gave you.

How did you make monitor visible? What have you done after last succesfull boot/shutdown that may have caused this?

Did you ever boot successfully to win7 after upgrading memory?

a tech installed window and upgraded memory. I had computer for a while. New monitor, when pplugged it didn't show windows no software error just wire. I didn't know that was the problem, kept powering desktop off and on. Then I connect to other monitor and it shows window error, I clicked repair, and it would upload files, show dell logo uploading like is windows was going to start but it went back to error page. Windows seems not to be able to repair. I created a window 7 disk online, F12 n clicked on option that said Cd or Dvd to repair but I went through the process I mentioned in my original post

C is the only disk on system.

Code:
diskpart
select  disk  0
list  part
exit
only 1 partition on disk?

Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
Does it find errors? repairs the errors? run command again to proof there are no more errors on disk

Ok I went to comand prompt, it says [microsoft windows 6.1.7600]

x:\windows\system32

did it reset computer to the original windows?
Do I still enter code you gave me? Do I press enter and/or space? Sorry I am afraid of entering wrong code

type: chkdsk/f c:
and press enter. What happens? many errors? repaired? You see some errors like MFT corrupt, and/or bootsector corrupt?
Run the command twice to see if no more errors. Post screenshot of output. When done reboot again and check if C is accessible. If so, reboot normally

Then stage 2
