I am currently looking for someone who has info on how to start up my services/ processes again. I currently have only 27 processes and 27 services running.

THis all started when I was playing FSX, I then stopped playing and shut off my computer. I did some other stuff then came back and this stuff was happening. I have tried to turn Windows 7 themmes back on but they are all shaded grey, probably because dwm.exe is not running under processes.

Have you run Startup Repair yet if Win7 doesn't start, or run SFC -SCANNOW Command or a Repair Install if it does start?

I would also clean reinstall without the corrupting factory preinstalled bloatware if you are forced to reinstall/restore: Reinstalling Windows 7

All my audio devices, P11 headset, built-in stereo, are not detected! I can't do anything, I looked at the system repair but sadly my laptop came as Windows 7 so I don't have a disk, and I can't exactly go out and buy one for 224.95 dollars!

All I do have is the restoration disks for the Acer Aspire 5742-7342 courtesy of Geek Squad. I am still formating my external hard drive. If no one can find an answer to this predicament then I will use my External HD and restoration disks.

As far as a startup repair goes, if you don't have an actual Windows 7 disk you can make one,

System Repair Disc - Create

Won't allow you to install Windows, but you can run the repair tools from it.

Burn the Win7 Installation DVD to DVD so you have the ability to clean reinstall with the Product Key on COA sticker, but more importantly for now can run a Repair Install and have the Repair console on second screen after booting.

Then run the steps I suggested earlier in order given.
Startup Repair
SFC -SCANNOW Command

I have tried running the cmd prompt as adminastrator, it works. I tryed both sfc /verfiyonly and sfc /scannow. It says the "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

Then move to the Repair Install as suggested.
