Windows 7: Windows 7 Startup Problems

Windows 7 Startup Problems

Hi Everyone,

I'm having trouble starting up my machine. I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop running Windows 7 Ult. x64-bit. Everything was working fine last night(3-5-12) until I had finished playing Dota2 with a friend. The game had froze and I opened task manager (as I have done in the past) and saw that it was not responding. Trying to end the program locked up my computer and it was getting late and I had class in the morning, so I manually shut down the computer and went to bed.

Waking up this morning I tried to boot up my computer with the familiar message that "windows had recovered from an unexpected shutdown" only to find that it was not booting up past the loading screen with the windows logo. I restarted the computer and got the option to run the startup repair. After waiting for 20+ mins, I only got to the blue background screen with a cursor.

Looking through the forums, I found out how and made a repair disc using my roommates computer. I had thought that this would be the answer however after booting it up I got to the "Select You Language" window. After picking English and clicking "Next" the window disappeared and only the blue background with movable cursor remain. It's been like this for 30 mins or so. I have the Install disc at home (I go to away for school) but this is a pretty busy week for classes and I was hoping to get some stuff done on it.

Any insight on the problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I followed the instructions and after I selected my language the next window to find the OS never appeared. The system used to make the repair disc is 64 bit. i don't have access to DISKPART and therefore can't execute the Startup Repair 3 times. Also to note, I am unable to access Safe Mode. It stops while loading drivers and restarts.

I would Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

I was able to get my install disc for Windows 7 but I'm still having problems. If I choose to repair windows, it still goes to the blue background and nothing happens. If I choose to install Windows all over again, it gets to the "Setup is Starting" screen and is stuck there. It doesn't freeze or anything as the loading circle still moves. I've asked around and most people are telling me it's most likely a hardware problem.

I gave you steps for when Windows 7 fails to boot which includes hardware tests to run if repair steps fail.

Where did you get the Windows 7 installer? Download the latest installer for your licensed version, burn to DVD or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool.
