How to re-install windows 7 if your laptop won't boot?

Good day everyone , first of all sorry for posting this thread in the wrong section.

how can i re-install windows if my laptop won't boot because it is stuck in "start-up repair loop" i tried everything in the internet/other forums fix, but it doesn't hell me at all. So can i re-install it by just putting a new windows 7 disc and booting by bios?

If you can get the Win 7 DVD in the drive and make it boot, you will be in shape to do a Clean Install. I hope you realize that all of the data on your C: partition will be lost if you have no backups. Use this tutorial to get a Clean Install Windows 7

Your confusing WIn7 not being able to boot with booting a DVD which is a different process: How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube

If it fails Entering BIOS setup by tapping the key given on first boot screen, and fails accessing the BIOS Boot Menu by tapping the Toshiba F12 key at boot, then reset the BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Then follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Never heard of em.

This is the top Win7 support on the web. None others come close. We pioneered most of the fixes, have the top google search results for almost every repair issue.

Someone posts for help here every minute of the day.

You cannot buy comparable support. If you do they often come here to find the fix.

I asked at the Geek Squad about a BIOS infection issue which is little known. The geek checked on the internet and began reading to me from a post I'd helped in here.
