None if those work at all... All my computer does is loop endlessly back to this screen, and when I try clicking any options on the system/startup repair, none of them work at all.. I just can't get passed this screen, also, I can't start windows on Safe mode nor can I start windows normally. Is there a way that I can just do a clean re-install? I don't need anything I just want my machine fixed (sorry if I sound whiny)

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD.
startup repair disc-create


Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?



You can order Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.

Work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Try System Recovery Options from the Win7 DVD provided not the onboard System Recovery Options which might be corrupted.

Everything that's needed is here to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Be sure to delete all partitions during the booted install, using the drive options shown in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7
