Have a look at this tutorial, which explains how to get into the Recovery Environment with a repair disc.

You need to look at Option 2.

System Recovery Options

The important thing to remember is that you need to insert your repair disc, restart your computer, and then boot into the disc you just inserted.

Do you have a disk image on another partition on your hard drive.

Have you done the simple startup repair yet from the disc you created ?

No I don't think so

And about the repair, I'm not sure, how do I start that one?

The one I'm currently doing doesn't let me start it

'Reinstall Windows' - Brings me too 2 Restore options, the first one which Saves all my personal documents Also does nothing then Freezes, the second option which is removes Everything on the hard drive does this; It Brings me to a screen saying this process will take 30 mins to an hour to complete. It has 5 steps, I left
It on for 14 hours and it was still at step 1 looking like no progress had happened.
=> it looks you started factory recovery and tried to reinstall to factory defaults. Now you have a half installed win7. Or at least it failed.

You als tried recovery environment but you didn't tell me at what stage it freezes or what errors it cannot repair.

It's a total mess now I think

Are you very sure??? Is your mouse working? Can you see a moving mouse pointer? Try keyboard if click doens't work.

Are there other clickable items there? Try some to see if computer detects the mouse click. please post results

If its a total mess is there anything I can do?

On Recovery Environment, I click Next to start it and it bring me to a keyboard language selection, I click on English and click next and it just disappears, now when I click next again it just re brings up the keyboard selection, I have managed to get it onto the part where it says select drivers(not sure how) both times I couldn't continue from that because the cursor was a blue spinning circle that stayed that way for hours

Yes I can click other things and see the cursor move, no idea what's going on.

It could also be a physical drive failure or memory issue. You can often go to your hard drive manufacturer's website and download a disk utility as a bootable .iso that you can burn to a cd and boot from to run hard disk diagnostics.

As for checking memory, download and burn this http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20...+-4.20.iso.zip to a CD. Boot from the CD and let it run through the tests 3 times. There should be no errors found.

However, if it is one of the above, it doesn't mean that the Win7 installation won't require a complete reinstall, which it sounds like it does.
