4yes old net book unable to complete startup

If this has been answered, kindly direct me to the post. I have a Gateway netbook without cd drives. the information stickers on the bottom are blank from age so I dont know much more than that. So. windows7 auto-update on Thusday. Saturday night it froze. I did a manual shutdown and got a black screen at startup with the system repair highlighted. I did that, and the computer seemed fine. I did not do a proper shut down,and the battery died. Now it either completes the syst. repair and the screen goes a colourful "white noise" in movent, simply black screen, jams at the startup repair window and even once had 3 sets of characters, not letters, vertically on the left side of the screen. It will not start up. Can I fixthis?

unable to complete installation
I've decided to upgrade from vista to win7 but during the installation, near the end after it's 3rd reboot it always freezes at 42% when it says that it's trying to importing my old settings from vista. I'm stuck at this point and need some help, thanks.
