Go to another computer with a 64 bit version of Windows installed and carry out this procedure:

CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC

START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button

Do you have a Win 7 DVD?

Oh yes, that procedure will prompt you to insert a cd/dvd.
CD is sufficient. DVD is also OK.

The answer is:
Yes, I have a Win 7 DVD.
No, I do not have a System Repair Disc.

What you are observing is normally self-inflicted problem.

Did you install/try to install a Linux-variant, for example Ubuntu? Yes/No. If yes, which one.

Did you install/try to install XP after Win 7 was already installed? Yes/No.

I'm trying to avoid you having to do a 100% clean install.

Would you rather perform a 100% clean install?

With the other problems you have related, then, YES, I believe that the path of least-resistance is going to do a 100% clean install.

The Win 7 DVD== is that a "full" version or an "upgrade" version?

Where did you purchase the DVD?
