Startup Repair not working??

6 month old computer, everything worked flawlessly. Yesterday the touchpad mouse wouldn't work in Windows. It worked when I needed it to input the password to unlock the system, but not in Windows. So I rebooted & same thing. I then rebooted in safe mode & ran Spybot. My computer froze so I took out the battery & restarted it. Black screen come up & said Windows did not start properly & they recommended Startup Repair or run Windows. Regardless of which I do, the startup repair starts & just keeps going. It doesn't actually do anything. The graphic to show it's working keeps running but nothing is actually being done. At one point it said all problems are fixed & rebooted right back to the startup repair. I can't get around it at all, & even tried to run the backup disks, but it won't get past the Startup repair. Any & all suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.

I mean if you boot from your win7 dvd the startup repair shouldn't start on its own....

You could also install ubuntu perhaps, since it will install grub as a boot loader which you could config to boot windows
