Sorry to hear about the problems you're having, Ariel. One of the Forum experts prepared a troubleshooting tutorial that may help.

Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Considering all the problems your machine is experiencing, you may want to jump straight to a Repair Install. If successful, a repair install will fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc. It takes about an hour and you'll have to reinstall Windows Updates. That could take at least another hour.

Or you could take this opportunity to do a superior clean reinstall and eliminate all the factory bloatware that slows down many computers.

What boot DVD are you using? Is it a Windows 7 installation DVD or some kind of a repair disk? You must use an installation disk that is the same version of what is installed on your machine. If you're using an installation disk it might be damaged (scratched, etc.) The repair install tutorial gives instructions on how to create your own installation disk. Follow the link in Step 4. (It's a Dell link but the ISO will work for any computer. Download and save the ISO to your desktop, then burn it to a blank DVD.)
