Windows 7: Windows 7 startup does not get past Advanced Boot Options menu

Windows 7 startup does not get past Advanced Boot Options menu

I am using a Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop, with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS. I recently reformatted my C:/ drive, and all seemed to be working just fine until I installed an icon package, which required me to reboot the computer. Since then, my laptop has not been able to get past the Advanced boot options screen (i.e. the Dell logo showing along with the "F2 Setup F12 Boot Options menu", and later it goes into the white blinking screen (like when you're typing), and the screen goes black after awhile, restarting again to the advanced boot options menu. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Boot into the Windows 7 installer or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair a few times. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

It should offer to System Restore but if not run it manually from the System Recovery Options to get back before the crap you installed which ruined your Windows 7.

If this fails then you may need to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore from it's partition, or get a superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following the steps and methods and using only the tools to maintain a perfect reinstall.
