Hi Epic! Welcome to SevenForums!
Do you see your manufacturer logo or whatever else usually appears on your screen before starting Windows?
If you do, try Start Up Repair by inserting your Windows 7 DVD.
Press any key when it says.
Choose your language and press next.
Look at the bottom of that window and it should say Repair Your Computer. Click that.
Select which operating system you want to restore and the click on Next.
If Windows 7 is not listed here, or it is blank, then it is ok. Click on Next anyway.
Select the Startup Repair option.
Startup Repair will now scan your computer to attempt to find and fix any startup problems.
NOTE: Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs. If repairs are not successful, you'll see a summary of the problem and links to contact information for support.
If that doesn't work follow the instructions here: Repair Install
Maybe a repair install wil work..
