Windows 7: Startup error

09 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Startup error

Okay so here i am sitting on facebook just updating stuff and talking to people, you know. And then all he sudden eveything stops working... Internet becomes unresponsive and ctl+alt+del didnt work either so like most ppl when everything stops working i did a force shut down, now everytime i start the computer i get "windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" i get 2 options... Launch startup repair and start windows normally. When i choose launch repair i get a black screen.... And thats it (i let it sit for 3 hours and nothing) when i choose start normally it goes ti starting windows screen then blinks a blue screen and restarts the computer putting me back to where i started.... Now i know most of you will say press f8 like a madman and do safe mode or last known configuration thing... Ive tried it all, everything you can think of... After nothing was working i decided the only thing i can do is a full system restore back to its default state (back to how it was when i purchased it) and sure enough go through all this shit and about doing the restore only to get a black screen... Again. So basically i cant do anything... And no i dont have the windows 7 disc it came preinstalled. If anyone is having the same problem and found a solution plz help me out. Thank you.
