Windows 7: WIndows 7 wont start up

29 Dec 2011   #11

Boot into System Recovery Options to attempt to System Restore to before the problem occurred.

If this fails, run Startup Repair repeatedly.

You'll likely need to run these repairs from a Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk.
What version Win7 do you have? Do you have another Win7 computer for your bit-version that can generate a Repair Disk?

The stalled Disk Check is not a good sign for the HD. If these all fail I'd burn to CD and run the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check run from the Repair options Command Line.

Are your files backed up? Did you make Recovery disks and is there a Recovery partition still on the HD? If so, would you prefer if necessary running Factory Recovery or using a Win7 Installation DVD to get to Clean Reinstall the OS without the factory bloatware?

If he gets to the bios then already we know that basically the unit functions even if the hard disk is toast.

... follow Greg's advice about booting up from a System Repair Disc (be sure to tell him how to make one, since some people confuse with a system restore disc).

The Seagate Diagnostic Tools can be burned to CD and then he can boot from CD and use Seagate Diagnostic Tools to test his hard drive.

Seagate Diagnostic Tools will work irregardless of who made t he hard disk.
