Error "Windows was unable to start"

I have started getting BSoD when I start the laptop. "The I/O manager has detected an error with the driver that is being verified.." is the kind of error I'm getting and then it goes to startup Repair and keeps trying to repair to no avail and then it starts all over again. What should I do now??

You need to disable Driver Verifier. Use Advanced Boot Options to get to Safe Mode and run an Elevated Command Prompt and type
verifier /reset
and hit enter. Restart your computer.

Why is Driver Verifier causing it though??

I'll probably be able to answer that once you disable it and upload the dump files by following the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
