Windows 7 fails to boot w/ problems with system recovery.
I've had this laptop (Dell Inspiron 1545) for about 2 years now. I've never really had a serious problem with the OS or anything. But about a week ago the system failed to boot and after awhile I was able to get the Startup Repair to work and restore my computer. However, my system for some reason or another decided to stop creating restore points. So two days ago my computer decides to act up again and wont boot after turning back on. I had shut it down properly but when I started it back up the next day it failed to boot, gave me the blue screen and restarted itself. No matter how long I try to do a Startup repair, nothing shows after the basic blue screen. I've used the Windows 7 Home Premium x64 installation disc to try and restore it and all works well until i get to where I click to get it to restore. The mouse loads and I get to the blue screen and I can see the little wheel working once or twice but after awhile I still do not see any prompts at all. Why isnt anything showing. What do I do from here??? If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
(BSOD info cant be uploaded because I cannot even boot the computer)

Hello ma55dr1v3r and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything.
From what you've described, this sounds like it could be either software related (damaged or corrupt system files, etc) or hardware related (failing hardrive, etc.) It will take time to run various troubleshooting steps to isolate the problem. One of the Forum members has prepared two troubleshooting tutorials that should help.

A couple of other considerations. Your computer may have a hidden recovery partition that can restore it to factory specs if it's a software probem. Likewise, if it's not a hardware issue you could do a clean install.
