Windows 7: Start up problem - possibly AtiPce.sys?

Start up problem - possibly AtiPce.sys?

My sons Windows 7(64 bit) laptop won't start up properly, I suspect he pulled the battery off while Windows was still open. I hope someone can help, I have tried the following start ups several times.

With a normal start up, it gets to the "Starting Windows" page, loads for a while and then restarts.

With a Safe Mode start up (all versions), it gets to:
Loaded: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\AtiPcie.sys, hangs for a while and then restarts.

With a Startup Repair (recommended) start up it gets to the login screen - well sort of. The background picture appears with a cursor, but there are nothing else.

I have created a system repair disc from my own Windows 7 (64 bit) laptop and have booted from that. This does the same as a Starup Repair, with the addition of choosing a keyboard, it doesn't progress ot offering me an account to log in to.

I am sure someone will have the answer, I just can't seem to get anywhere by myself.

Thanking you in advance.

Thanks for the speedy reply Jacee, that didn't help in my case.

I forgot to mention that the Packard Bell Recovery Management also hangs and we don't have any recovery or installation disks, so I could only follow the first instruction, which gave the same result as the normal start up.

It has been suggested that the HDD may be faulty, I'm not totally convinced about that.
