Laptop can't boot, windows logo spins halfway.

Laptop couldnt bootup, windows 7 logo would spin halfway before entering system recovery.

System repair, memory diagnostic all did not help.

Tried to enter safe mode, but it keeps reverting back to system recovery screen after I hold f8/f5.

Problem Signature 01: startup repair offline.
Problem signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 3: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 4: 21200685
Problem signatire 5 : Autofailover
Problem signature 6: 3
Problem signature 7: bad driver

Any help is very much appreciated.

Do you have windows installation disk or a startup repair disk ? If you have, boot from it and run Startup Repair at least three times, with restarts aftr each single run.

If you need, you may download windows iso for your installed version from digital river .

I do not have the windows installation disc =/

Does running startup repair without the disc help ?

Startup repair without the disk does not work perfectly all the times, so it is generally advised to run it using either the startup repair disk or the windows 7 installation disk.

You either download a repair disk iso from the link specified in the first post of the thread Win7 Repair Disk Download (the download links are in the middle of the resulting page) , the 64 bit one, as your system is. Or you may download the windows 7 iso from digital river. Burn the either iso in a disk, boot from it, and run Startup Repair , at least for three times, with restarts in between every single run .

Okay somehow after running bootrec.exe , my laptop finally managed to enter the safe mode screen.

I booted using last known good configuration and it worked.

Still unsure of what caused the issue in the first place ..

Thanks a lot for the help, Arc. =D
