Windows 7: Computer keeps rebooting and prompting start up repair.

Computer keeps rebooting and prompting start up repair.

I have looked through this site and found a thread on it, but I literally can't get into safe mode to back up files. I had a feeling this would happen because the laptop was acting silly. I bought this comp off someone, it and the charger is all I have for it. It was working yesterday no pop ups or anything, but I accidentally (like an idiot) installed something that I knew was gonna give me trouble on the long run. I might have to fully clean it at some repair shop that I usually go to, but all I need to do is see if I can at least get to my files and save some things.

On start while booting, I hit F8 and tried most of the options but the end result keeps showing a quick Blue Screen of Death and then restarts right back to start windows normally or start up repair. I tried hitting repair computer in order to get to system rectory but when I get there, I see nothing, no options at all. So I guess all hope is lost?

Yeah, like I said, I have only the laptop, no disks or anything like that. I see the option for repair your computer, but when I click it, it brings me to the screen but shows no options. Any reason why that is? Without that page, I can't attempt the first link.

In addition here are other steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which show you how to burn a Win7 installation DVD for your licensed version to boot to rescue your files, run Startup Repair to see if it will repair the OS, and if necessary run HP System Recovery (Do a Minimal Recovery without the bloatware) or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
