Windows 7: No way of logging into computer

Ok thanks, yeah I seen nothing else for any type of HDD test in BIOS.


Well thanks for link but of course with my luck I have run into more problems, the sticker on the bottom of my laptop is completely worn out. I can see a little of the blue and green color still but all lettering is completely gone. Any way of finding this key back out through command prompt or something?

Also if there is no way of finding out my key again would I be able to use a Windows 7 Ultimate disc to either repair this or just clean install? Again this is only if there is absolutely no way of finding out coa key on bottom.

What I don't see at the link you provide F5ing, is the link to Digital River where any version of Windows 7 can be legally downloaded. My apologies if it's there and I missed it.

Anyway, here it is: Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) My Digital Life

thanks, but what about the coa sticker on the bottom, everything including almost the entire color of the sticker is worn out. Cannot read the key. Will that disc I create from it ask for it, and is there anyway of recovering it?

No, not if you can't login to the computer. If you could, you could run Magic Jellybean Keyfinder and it would tell you what the key is. I don't know if you can do this from the Guest account or not.

No, I cannot even get onto the guest account now that the f10 restore messed up. Won't get past the windows welcome screen gives me the error code from page 1. Looks like I will be buying a disc.

Could I buy a Win 7 Ultimate disc even though this had home premium? I am assuming I will not be able to do a repair with the ultimate disc just a fresh install? Thanks

Yes, you can use any version of Win 7 you want. Since you can't boot the system, you can't do a Repair Install anyway so get whatever version you want. Ultimate costs more than Pro, Pro costs more than Home Premium.

I don't see anything in Ultimate that makes it worth buying, so I went with Pro on both my computers. I see a Win 7 Pro Upgrade from Home Premium for $67.99 here: Windows 7 Professional - evaluesoftware

I've never bought anything there, just found it via a Google search.

NewEgg has one for $84: Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Anytime Upgrade: Windows 7 Home Premium to ProfessionalI've bought lots of stuff from them, very good site.

Ztruker, no apology necessary. Glad you caught that as I thought it was in there!

Ztruker, don't you have to have a working, validated install in order to use one of those upgrades?
