Windows 7: Automatic Repair loop, laptop won't boot!

Automatic Repair loop, laptop won't boot!

(Posting the same as on Eightforums as I didn't get any response there :/ )


Hello!
(Mom's computer is Windows 7 whilst mine the acer has Windows 8)

Yet again I have problems with my Laptop (Acer 5755G)

Anyways here's what I did, I replaced the 2 gb ram stick with a 4 gb, for a total of 8 instead of six, now the new stick was a Kingston HyperX SODIMM 1600mhz CL9 204-pin.

So after I replaced the 2 gb with the new one I tried booting up the laptop, and it went directly to automatic repair, now I figured this had to do with the new ram but the screen just went black, I could move the cursor but it stayed like that for 30 minutes, tried rebooting several times with no progress.

So today I've just been trying to make a bootable usb/hdd but none of my usb's or harddrives work....
The windows 7 usb/dvd tool won't even recognize the original ISO downloaded from the microsoft site as a ''Valid Iso file''

And since when you're creating a bootable usb it has to be FAT32, so I connected a harddrive partitioned it with 8gb and set the fs to fat32, the usb/dvd tool won't even recognize that as a portable media either.

So now, I've been trying to extract the Iso file into the external hdd partition but it took forever, I guess since my mom's computer is an ancient relic of a computer.
I also connected the SSD to a sata controller from another portable hdd but got the message ''Drive I: needs to be formatted before you can use it'' and then a ''I:\ is not accesible. Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

So if anyone got any tips don't hesitate to post, I'll try anything.

EDIT: I tried with a Kingston Datatraveller, but the damn Windows media creator thing said it was locked with bitlocker, and I cant find any reference to bitlocker in windows 7, although many guides told me it would show up in search.

Kingston Tech Support is very good and will swap out the RAM if it isn't spec'd correctly, or help you get the seller to do so. Otherwise make sure it's spec'd precisely which can be double-checked with Crucial System Scanner software to find out what type of memory is in your computer.

You may need to replace the other stick to resolve the problem and so you can run the scanner.

If not then use the Win7 installer System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair which should automate System Restore if it finds nothing else. If not run it from the options list.

You can use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works when the others don't.

Hello!

Yes, well I'm using Windows 8, posted to this forum and the eightforums. Anyways I don't have a Windows 7 CD nor a Windows 8 CD since I bought a digital copy, although I did burn the cd, but nothing happens when I click repair.

What happens when you remove the new RAM stick? If it works then check the RAM specs on the new RAM stick. Kingston Tech Support can help you with this.

Did the 8 disk boot to do your install correctly? If so it should do an Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8.

If not download another copy of Win8 ISO and burn it to DVD (not CD) correctly using ImgBurn at 4x speed as you need it for repairs. If you want to use a stick I've given you the best tool to write it with.
